MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. US President Joe Biden's remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin can be described as "very bad," Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
"I would refrain from giving a wordy comment on that. I will say one thing: these are very bad remarks on the part of the US president," Peskov said, when asked about the Kremlin's reaction to Biden's remark.
Peskov characterized relations between Russia and the US as "very bad."
"These are very bad relations," he told journalists Thursday, answering a corresponding question.
Meanwhile, Peskov claimed that it is not a question to ask Moscow on how to improve these relations.
"Now this is not a question that you should address to us," he said.
The remarks made by Biden in an interview with ABC have become a game changer in relations between the two countries, according to Peskov.
"Of course, nothing like that has ever happened before," he said.
When asked whether Moscow will take any steps in response, the Kremlin spokesman noted that "there is nothing to be done."
Responding to the question how such statements could affect bilateral relations, Peskov noted that "it is perfectly clear how." However, he refrained from commenting on the issue in more detail.
Biden has shown by his remarks that he definitely is not planning to improve ties with Russia, Peskov said, noting that in future cooperation with Washington Moscow will proceed from this.
According to him, Russia will analyze its approach to cooperation with the US on the issues of interest.
When asked if the Kremlin considered the US move as a "trap" Peskov stressed that he had nothing more to add. The Kremlin spokesman refused to say whether Putin was planning to respond to Biden’s remarks.
"Our approach will be analyzed soon, including at the consultations with our ambassador, who was invited to Moscow," Peskov said.
Biden said earlier in an interview with ABC News that the Russian authorities would have to "pay a price" for their alleged interference in US elections. In addition, when asked if he considered Putin to be "a killer," Biden answered in the affirmative.
