Russian President Vladimir Putin praised President-elect Joe Biden on winning the US official election — following quite a while of holding out until the vote was authoritatively affirmed.
“As far as it matters for me, I am prepared for cooperation and contact with you,” Putin’s directive for the previous VP stated, as per an assertion delivered by the Kremlin on Tuesday.
The message came a day after the Electoral College certified Biden’s triumph in the 2020 official election on Nov. 3.
The Russian president recently said he would not perceive Biden as the duly elected president until the outcomes were “affirmed in an authentic, legitimate way.”
In his message, Putin likewise wished the previous VP “each achievement.”
“Putin wished the duly elected president each achievement and communicated certainty that Russia and the United States, which have an extraordinary duty regarding worldwide security and soundness, could, notwithstanding their disparities, truly help to take care of the numerous issues and difficulties confronting the world,” the Kremlin said.
Voters from the 50 states and the District of Columbia assembled on Monday to count their polling forms, giving Biden 306 electoral votes to President Trump’s 232.
A competitor should accumulate 270 electoral votes to win the administration.
