“If the president of that country uses such vocabulary, he should be ashamed. It is clear that Mr. Biden is behaving like a Hollywood cowboy for reasons of domestic politics,” presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in statements on public television. .

Peskov recommended that Biden ask his advisers “if they find a single offensive expression towards him from President Putin.”

“It is unlikely that such crude statements as those uttered from the mouth of an American head of state would in any way offend another head of state, much less President Putin,” he said.

The presidential spokesperson added that these insults represent “a great shame for that same country, that is, the United States.”

Biden, who has previously called Putin a “war criminal” for his invasion of Ukraine, called the Kremlin chief a “crazy son of a bitch” at a donation rally in San Francisco on Wednesday, according to the American press.

The Democratic president, who is campaigning for the upcoming presidential elections in November, in which he will seek a new four-year term in the United States, was talking about climate change when he said: “We have a crazy ‘SOB’ like Putin and others, and we have to always worry about a nuclear conflict, but the existential threat to humanity is the climate.”

Furthermore, days ago he also accused Putin and his “henchmen” of having ended the life of the Russian opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, who died last Friday in a remote Arctic prison, where he was serving a sentence for being an “extremist”.

Putin and Biden last met in Geneva in June 2021, and following the outbreak of war in Ukraine two years ago, contact between the two countries has been kept to a minimum.

Moscow accuses Washington of prolonging the war in Ukraine by supplying heavy weapons to Kiev to achieve “a strategic defeat for Russia”.

Putin, Trump and the campaign for the White House

During his three-day tour of California to raise money for his campaign, Biden also said he was shocked by recent comments from his potential Republican rival, Donald Trump.

The former president, who despite his legal problems is his party’s favorite to run in November, compared the suspicious death in prison of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny with his legal problems in the United States.

A New York judge fined Trump $350 million after finding that he had lied for years about the true value of his assets in his companies’ financial statements. The former president assured that the sentence was a form of “communism or fascism”.

“Some of the things this guy said, like comparing himself to Navalny and saying that he was prosecuted – just like Navalny – because our country became a communist country. “I don’t know where the hell he got this from,” Biden said.
