MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. US President Joe Biden dared to make a ‘brave’ visit to Kiev only after obtaining guarantees of security from Russia, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said during a briefing Wednesday.
"Biden did not dare to visit Kiev without warning Russia and without asking the Russian side to ensure his safety," she noted.
The spokeswoman noted that "the US leader’s visit was staged with drama, but, in reality, resembled a failed stage of in a provincial theater."
"In order to assign some drama to this moment, they have even sounded the air raid alarm," she noted. "Although, they told the people of Kiev in advance not to pay attention to it, due to absence of any actual threat. Everyone warned their neighbor: Biden is about to come, they will launch the siren, but it’s okay, we can stay home or do our own staff, because it is a part of the staging."
"If Washington wanted to make another example to its allies on how to support the Kiev regime, it didn’t come out too well," Zakharova concluded. "Especially amid the loud claims that they are in total control of the situation and the Kiev has endured and is about to win."
