The long-cold war between the USA and Russia continues to heat up in 2021, after President Joe Biden took an ugly shot at Russian
dictator President Vladimir Putin.
After US intelligence agencies revealed that Putin and the Kremlin were again involved in attempts to influence the US election in 2020, (after having been accused of the same thing just 4 years earlier), Joe Biden took to the airwaves to claim that Putin will be countered, and “shortly”.

Reuters reported that Konstantin Kosachyov, the deputy chairman of the parliament’s upper house, called Biden’s answer a watershed moment in the relationship between the two countries. He said such a comment “is not allowed from the mouth of a statesman of such a rank.”
Putin and his Russian government has fully denied that they’ve committed any wrongdoing, and have stated that these US intel reports are wholly erroneous.
