'I Wish Him Well': Putin Responds to Biden's Comments about Him

US President Joe Biden previously told ABC News that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin would "pay a price" for alleged interference in the 2020 US presidential vote, also agreeing when journalists asked if Putin is a "killer", Sputnik reported on Thursday.

Putin has addressed Joe Biden's controversial statement about alleged Russian meddling in the 2020 presidential elections, which took a personal turn against him.

"As for the statement by my American counterpart, we really are, as he said, personally acquainted. What would I answer him? I would tell him: stay healthy! I wish him good health", the Russian president said, stressing he is not joking or being ironic.

 "There have been many difficult, dramatic, and bloody events in the history of each nation. But when we assess other people, when we assess other states, other peoples, we are always looking in the mirror. We always see ourselves there", Putin said.

According to the president, the American governing class was formed in the age of the conquest of the continent by Europeans, "which was linked to elimination of the local population, this was direct genocide of Indian tribes".

Putin stressed that the US will have to take Russian interests into account.

Turkish regime detains 13 for insulting Erdogan on Women's Day

Turkish police have detained 13 people who participated in a Women’s Day march for allegedly insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, officials and news reports said Thursday.

Washington continues its dirty war on Syria

Tulsi Gabbard, a former US Democratic Congress member, has affirmed that the United States continues its dirty war on Syria and occupation of parts of Syrian territories and maintains its crippling sanctions that are causing suffering to millions of Syrians and preventing reconstruction in the country. She has also condemned the recent American aggression on areas in Deir Ezzor near the Syrian-Iraqi borders.

In a video message addressing her colleagues in the congress Gabbard said that Washington carries on its war on Syria using proxies like Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra, known as Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham, terrorist organizations as a force on the ground that attack Syrian areas, occupy Syrian lands and commit crimes against the Syrians.

"I’m glad that some of my former colleagues in Congress are speaking out against the recent unconstitutional airstrikes in Syria - but they’re ignoring the bigger issue: the regime change war the US continues to wage in Syria using al-Qaeda/al-Nusra/HTS terrorists as our proxy ground force, who now occupy and control the city of Idlib, imposing Sharia Law and “cleansing” the area of most Christians and religious minorities, Gabbard said in a video posted on her facebook account.

The Biden Administration continues to use the US military to illegally occupy NE Syria to "take the oil" as Trump so crassly but honestly put it, violating international law.

Zakharova: West has launched large-scale campaign to support Russia's non-systemic opposition

The Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has stressed that the west has provided side-scale support for the Russian non-systematic opposition and ignored its internal political crises.

On Thursday, the US and the EU imposed sanctions on several Russian government officials and entities over the jailing and alleged poisoning of vlogger Alexei Navalny. The US imposition of sanctions came after the EU's blacklisting of several entities and officials was announced.

In an interview with the Govorit Moskva radio station on Thursday, Zakharova said that “unfortunately, many EU nations fake adherence to principles regarding so many issues: relations with Russia, inability, and impossibility to protect principles under the pressure of the United States, the human rights problematics. They use a whole arsenal of arguments to support our non-systemic opposition both in terms of politics and information.”

US Secretary of State: Washington will not overthrow regimes by force anymore

The US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, considered that the previous interventions by the United States to change the regimes in several countries around the world had tarnished the reputation of American democracy.

Blinken stressed that Washington will not use force to overthrow the regimes any longer. He noted that " the Biden administration will seek to change the paths previously used to change regimes in other countries.  We will not promote democracy through costly military interventions or by attempting to overthrow authoritarian regimes by force.  We have tried these tactics in the past.  However well intentioned, they haven’t worked.  They’ve given democracy promotion a bad name, and they’ve lost the confidence of the American people.  We will do things differently. Shoring up our democracy is a foreign policy imperative.”
