The West ignores Russia’s strategic interests. It wants to contain Russia. Sanctions are a tool of unfair competition. The West supports young, active and ambitious politicians in Russia so that the opposition come to power and destroy the military and industrial potential Vladimir Putin has amassed. The West interferes in Russia's internal affairs by financing a great number of non-profit organisations.
The US president refuses to hold a joint press conference with the Russian president after their meeting and plans to avoid direct questions.
While it is true that US President Joe Biden chose not to hold a joint press conference after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, it is not true that he will avoid direct questions. In fact, both Biden and Putin held solo press conferences following their meeting where both faced direct questions from the press.
Commenting on the decision to not have a joint press conference, President Biden said he wants to avoid "a contest about who can do better in front of a press conference or try to embarrass one another".
