Crimea became a Russian region after a referendum was held there in March 2014. 96.77 per cent of Crimean voters and 95.6 per cent of Sevastopol residents were in favour of joining Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea to be its own, temporarily occupied territory. The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the inhabitants of Crimea democratically, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter, voted for reunification with Russia, the Crimea issue is “finally closed.”
Old Joe intends to continue the demonisation of Russia. That means that any mistake he makes can always be attributed to the creepy Moscow and insidious Putin.
Joe Biden does not demonise Russia but points out the problems that exist between the two countries. He especially criticised the Kremlin's aggressive actions against Ukraine and called on Putin to end the occupation of Crimea. However, Joe Biden and Russia's current leadership have similar views on nuclear arms control. Joe Biden has already said that he would seek ways to extend the New START treaty for another five years.
