Ukraine war live updates: Biden calls Putin a ‘crazy SOB’; Kremlin says Biden is trying to look like a ‘cowboy from Hollywood’

During a fundraiser event in San Francisco, U.S. President Joe Biden made headlines by referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “crazy SOB,” stirring controversy amid discussions about the climate crisis and geopolitical tensions. Biden emphasized the urgency of tackling the climate crisis as the most significant threat facing humanity, while also acknowledging concerns about potential nuclear conflicts.

The Kremlin swiftly responded to Biden’s remarks, labeling them as “boorish” and suggesting that they were more damaging to Biden and the United States’ reputation than to Putin himself. Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov criticized Biden’s choice of language, implying that it reflected poorly on Biden’s demeanor.

Meanwhile, a senior Russian official hinted at the possibility of further Russian aggression, suggesting that Moscow might not be satisfied with its current occupation of four Ukrainian regions and could potentially target the capital city of Kyiv in the future.

Reflecting on Biden’s comments, Peskov emphasized that neither Russia nor Putin had ever used such disrespectful language toward Biden. He suggested that Biden’s remarks could tarnish America’s image rather than affecting Putin’s reputation.

While Biden’s candid remarks may have caused a stir, they underscore the ongoing tensions between the United States and Russia, particularly regarding issues such as the imprisonment and subsequent death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Despite the controversy, Biden’s statement highlights the pressing need for diplomatic efforts to address geopolitical challenges and foster constructive dialogue between nations.
