Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday congratulated Joe Biden on his victory within the US presidential election, after Biden gained the state-by-state Electoral School vote that formally determines the US presidency, the Kremlin mentioned.
The Kremlin had mentioned it could look ahead to the “official outcomes” of the election earlier than commenting on its end result, whilst different nations congratulated Biden on the win within the days after the November three vote.
“Individually, I’m prepared for interplay and speak to with you,” the Kremlin cited Putin as saying in an announcement.
“Putin wished the President-elect each success and expressed confidence that Russia and the USA, which have a particular accountability for world safety and stability, might, regardless of their variations, actually assist to unravel the numerous issues and challenges dealing with the world,” the Kremlin mentioned.
The Kremlin is broadly believed to have been concerned within the social media influence campaign that helped elect Donald Trump in 2016. Putin’s delay in accepting Biden because the winner of the 2020 election was interpreted by some as help for the Trump marketing campaign’s efforts to overturn the outcome.
