Putin will not congratulate Biden on US Independence Day: Kremlin

Monday, 4 July 2022

Russian President Vladimir Putin will not congratulate his US counterpart Joe Biden on Monday's US Independence Day because of Washington's "unfriendly" actions towards Moscow, the Kremlin said.

"Congratulations this year can hardly be considered appropriate," Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call, reports Reuters.

"The United States' unfriendly policies are the reason," he added.
