"Russian President Vladimir Putin praised US President Joe Biden Thursday, describing him as a "professional" who is "completely knowledgeable on all issues," according to a Kremlin transcript of Putin's televised remarks.

"Mr. Biden is a professional, and you need to be very careful when working with him so as not to miss something," Putin said during a videoconference meeting with graduates from Russia's Graduate School of Public Administration. "He himself does not miss a thing, I assure you, and this was absolutely clear to me."

"Let me say it again: he is focused, he knows what he wants to achieve and does it very skilfully, and you can instantly sense it," the Russian President added."

To promote Biden you gonna do Anything, even taking words from a 'killer' (called by Biden himself) praising president how awesome he is? 😹 Thats a new low, WSJ. Not only that, you misleading about the regimes. Take some cold shower and think about your place of existence for a moment 🤡

"Victim's, aren't we all…"

– The Crow (Immortality)

"And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come SALVATION, and STRENGTH, and the Kingdom of our God, and the POWER of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."

"Therefore rejoice, ye Heavens, and ye that dwell in them. WOE to the inhabiters of the Earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having GREAT WRATH, because he knoweth that he hath but a SHORT TIME."

"And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman (Bride of Christ) which brought forth the man child."

"And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle (Rapture), that she might FLY into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, FROM the face of the serpent."

"And the serpent cast out of his mouth WATER AS  A FLOOD (Russia's Posiden Weapon) after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood."

"And the Earth helped the woman, and the earth OPENED HER MOUTH (Giant Earthquake), and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth."

"And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the REMNANT (Those Left Behind) of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

1 Corinthians 15
"BEHOLD… I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep (Me), but we shall ALL (You woken out of Sleep) be changed,"

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be RAISED incorruptible (Bride of Christ, Raptured), and we shall be CHANGED!"

"For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on IMMORTALITY."

"So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have PUT ON IMMORTALITY (Me Raptured), then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is SWALLOWED up in VICTORY."

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?"

"The STING OF DEATH IS  SIN; and the strength of sin is the law."

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the VICTORY through our Lord Jesus Christ."

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye STEADFAST, UNMOVABLE, always ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, forasmuch as ye know that your LABOUR IS NOT IN VAIN in the Lord." (Those Left Behind)

“But every man in his own order: Christ the Firstfruits; AFTERWARD they that are Christ's at his coming.”

Revelation 20:4
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them (Russia, China), and JUDGMENT was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received HIS MARK upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

I doubt the US has a powerful cyber capability. American infrastructure, military techs and systems etc, all have been hacked before, like this colonial pipeline cyber attacked by Russia, information about the F-35 got hacked and stolen by China. So I would recommend to really really step up their cyber capabilities a lot more, otherwise they are gonna really lose. In the meantime, US should just not interfere with other countries affairs other than just having a common diplomatic relationship.

America always show military power in around the China, it's keep on ruin china territories reunited and the Asia area peace

Inside of American's eyes that and south China sea, Taiwan province, Xinjiang, Tibet, Hong Kong is not belonging China territories, its look like belonging America territories, because American more ambitious and greedy maybe make China and America military clash in the future

China motherland , Taiwan province must protect by people republic of China air force everyday, if China don't do that, maybe some foreigner wrong believe that China territories belonging their rule territories

if Taiwan province authorities ruler don't protect China territories not divided, therefore for mainland China authorities ruler go to protect China ancient and holy the land, and China air force and navy go to protect China whole country not divided and any enemies aggression

China and America two nations between in biggest Pacific Ocean, but America from far to Asia area and provoke some Asia countries to fight to China, it's what is propuse? other America always make military drills in around the China, it's keep on ruin china territories reunited and the Asia area peace , world trouble maker is back. why China need stop defence myself ocean territory and land territory is sovereignty? America you're sick?

Ax li June 20, 2021 - 7:04 AM

as what selfish biden had said, it is only for the benefit of americans. it is clear biden are not doing anything for the benefit of other nations and will continue to drive wedges around the world creating wars in other nation for the benefit of american and killing of other nation people for his selfish objectives, kidnapping of other nation citizen for ransom and demand. us does not care about other mankind as long as their interest and resouces are protected. sad to see and realize us are selfish and are not fair as they claimed to be.

Ah! It was a needed gesture of diplomacy. Diplomacy is the basic policy of decency in human relations, for the world of nations to achieve harmony in diversity, communication is a GOD given gift to humanity. I agree with the asessment of a DW news feature that says these two leaders "agree to disagree" & I may add that it was a good start, pun intended😃😄 as one of the items for discussion according to previous coverings re: summit was to bring up a common ground of interest & the START treaty was a good one. As a the line of a song by Sting "there isn't a monopoly of common sense on either side of the political fence" maybe such is the underlying tone. Yes indeed! Humanity needs compassion & cooperation. The summit was a necessary face to face attempt to put forward the human touch, to meet & greet & communicate. A decent side to politics. Hopefuly, the pudding is now being prepared, engridients & blends being decided for the right mix, cooking time remains to be seen, & may the tasting be good for humanity's consumption. 🤣😃🤣😄 so help us GOD! 😇

The cyber attack on colonial may have come from within Russia. But the US story has evolved to the Russian government orchestrated the attacks. Russia of course denies this. The WSJ says there's ample evidence it came from within Russia. But we don't really know if our intel agencies are lying or Russia is lying. But ultimately it doesn't matter. They'll keep happening. But Biden gets to look "tough" which was the whole purpose of making a big deal about ransom ware attack.
Then there's Russian meddling in US elections. As if the US doesn't meddle in virtually every other's country's election. Quite often when election meddling doesn't work we stage a military coup. And if that doesn't work, we'll just invade, like in Iraq. But Biden gets to look "tough". This is also why the Russian press was not allowed into the room, they would ask questions that made Biden look like a hypocrite instead of tough.
