Kremlin says Joe Biden calling Vladimir Putin ‘crazy SOB’ debases United States

  • Kremlin Condemns Biden’s Remark: The Kremlin criticized Joe Biden’s description of Vladimir Putin as a “crazy SOB,” stating it debased the U.S. and its leaders. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed Biden’s comment as a failed attempt to emulate a “Hollywood cowboy.”
  • Deteriorating Relations: Tensions between Russia and the West have escalated due to conflicts in Ukraine, the death of Alexei Navalny, and accusations of Russia planning space-based nuclear weapons.
  • Low Point in Diplomatic Relations: Some diplomats view current Russia-U.S. relations as the worst since the Cold War, with recent remarks from Biden adding fuel to the fire.
  • History of Contentious Statements: Biden’s past comments, such as calling Putin a killer, further strain relations. The Kremlin insists on evidence before accusations, while Biden’s remarks about Putin’s removal from power have stirred controversy.


The Kremlin said on Thursday a remark by Joe Biden calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “crazy SOB” debased the United States and those who use such vocabulary, and was a poor attempt to appear like a “Hollywood cowboy”.

The U.S. president made the comment during a fundraiser in San Francisco on Wednesday, and also said there was always a threat of nuclear conflict although the existential threat to humanity remained the climate.

“The use of such language against the head of another state by the president of the United States is unlikely to infringe on our president, President Putin,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “But it debases those who use such vocabulary.”
