One of the more enjoyable facets of Vladimir Putin and Sergey Lavrov is their sardonic wits. Anybody or anything that makes fun of just about any aspect of US foreign policy should be encouraged. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Moscow had some stinging words for Washington which were also hilariously ironic on Monday, as both Putin and Biden look ahead to their in-person summit set for June 16 in Geneva. Warning of “uncomfortable” signals to come, the Kremlin indicated that high on the agenda would be a range of human rights and free speech issues in the United States, particularly the “persecution” of those behind the January 6 Capitol riot by the Biden administration.
The words appear Moscow’s ultimate trolling response to Biden remarks on Sunday wherein he vowed to confront Putin on egregious human rights abuses: “Of course, we will be ready to discuss everything, including problems that exist in the United States,” Lavrov told reporters Monday following Biden’s statements. According to AFP:
He said Russia was monitoring the “persecution” of those behind the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.
