Putin responds to Biden ‘killer’ claim: ‘Those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’


Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has responded to remarks by his US counterpart that he is a ‘killer’ by claiming that that “those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.

Mr Putin, who was speaking to Russian state TV, also pointedly wished Joe Biden the “best of health”.

There have been claims by some Russian critics of Mr Biden, that the 78 year old is suffering from dementia.

Earlier this week, the US president was interviewed on TV and was asked if he thought the Russian leader was “a killer”? Mr Biden responded: “Yes, I do”, an answer which has enraged Moscow.

These were the first remarks made by President Putin following Mr Biden’s ABC interview.

The Russian leader’s comments followed an angry rebuke earlier on Thursday by the Krenlin spokesman.
