Kremlin expressed his strong disapproval of the statements made by the President of the United States, Joe Biden, in a recent speech where he called the Russian President Vladimir Putin and established a comparison between Russia and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.
“For us, this is unacceptable. “We do not agree with the same tone of the Russian Federation or our president,” he said. Dmitri Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said this in a press conference.
In his speech from the Oval Office of the White House, Biden pledged to continue to support Israel and Ukraine in their conflict between Hamas and Russia, claiming that both are looking to “destroy the neighboring democracy”. The Democratic president added, “We cannot and will not allow terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin to win. “I won’t let that happen.”
Dmitri Peskov responded to these words, stressing that “it is not suitable for responsible leaders, and it is not acceptable to us.” But he also emphasized that the US efforts to “contain” Russia are doomed to failure.
On the other hand, the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, praised Biden’s speech. In a publication of Red Social X (ex-Twitter), Zelensky stated: “US investment in the defense of Ukraine will ensure the long-term security of Europe and the world.”
The situation between Russia and Ukraine
Since the start of the Russian invasion in February 2022, the United States and the European Union have provided support to Ukraine, providing billions of dollars in financial and military aid.

According to the Ukrainian General Staff, the enemy continues to attack and continues to try to surround the city. In the last 24 hours, the Russian army has defeated around 900 soldiers and destroyed 150 armored vehicles in the area.
In this regard, Putin visited the headquarters of the Russian Army in Rostov-on-Don, located in the south and near the border with Ukraine. There he met with the chief of the general staff and commander of military operations in Ukraine, Valery Gerasimov, who presented a report on the state of the Russian offensive.
Rostov-on-Don is an important strategic point for Russian operations in Ukraine and was the scene of an uprising by mercenaries of the Wagner Group in June, which briefly took over the headquarters.
