The recently concluded US Presidential elections, is the talk of the entire world. There have been many topics of contention especially who has won the elections, despite the majority of the world and Americans accepting the Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the winner and the 46th President of the USA! Former President Donald Trump has refused to accept the election results and has alleged electoral fraud. He has also mentioned that his campaign would be challenging the results in the Court. Amidst all this drama, Biden has already addressed the people, in what is considered as his acceptance speech and many world leaders have already been congratulating Biden for being elected as the next US President. However, there are some people apart from Trump, who are yet to accept Biden's victory!
Despite the leaders of various countries accepting Biden's victory and congratulating him, Russia is yet to accept his victory and earlier, China too stated that it would not yet accept Biden as the next President of the USA. A statement from China stated that it had "noticed that Mr. Biden declared he is the winner of the election." Now, the Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated Russia is willing to work with whomever the people of the USA choose as their leader but has added that they would not yet consider Joe Biden as the next US President. Putin's statement says, "We will work with anyone who has the confidence of the American people."
Putin also went on to state, "The confidence can only be given to a candidate whose victory has been recognised by the opposing party, or after the results are confirmed in a legitimate, legal way." This is the first time that Putin has given a detailed comment on the US Presidential elections, after having earlier just mentioned that Russia would not yet recognise Biden's victory. Putin is one of the very few world leaders who are yet to accept Biden's victory and are refusing to look at him as the next US President. Earlier, Russia had been accused of tampering and interfering in the 2016 US Presidential elections, to help Donald Trump win it. Since then, Russia has been wary of Biden and his rise to become the next US President. Stay tuned for updates...
