While world leaders from all over continue to congratulate Joe Biden for his Presidential election win over Donald Trump, there’s one man who’s refusing to send his congratulations.
Russia’s Vladimir Putin says he’s not ready to recognize Biden as the Presidential election winner.
Putin, who has yet to congratulate Biden on his victory, spoke about the matter on Sunday on Russian state TV:
‘We will work with anyone who has the confidence of the American people.’
‘But that confidence can only be given to a candidate whose victory has been recognized by the opposing party, or after the results are confirmed in a legitimate, legal way,’
Putin did however say that his decision to not congratulate Biden is ‘a formality’ with no ulterior motives.
