Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his country’s relationship with the U.S. has deteriorated under the Biden administration’s leadership. During an interview on Friday, Putin described the relationship to be at its lowest point in recent years.

Putin went on to compare Joe Biden to President Trump by saying the two are vastly different politicians. He referred to Trump as an “extraordinary, talented individual” and described him as as polarizing. The Russian President said this was because Trump didn’t stem from a traditional political background and wasn’t a career politician like Biden.

“President Biden, of course, is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics,” he explained. “Just think of the number of years he spent in the Senate, a different kind of person.”

Biden has expressed his goals for rebuilding a relationship with Russia that is secure and predictable. Although Biden hopes to avoid any conflict with the Russian President, he assures the U.S. will be stern with the Russian government for any detrimental activity.

While Biden and Putin are expected to meet on Wednesday, critics are skeptical the encounter will lead to a major breakthrough for the two nations.
