Putin won't congratulate Biden on Independence Day

Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not congratulate his American counterpart, Joe Biden, on Independence Day. "No, a congratulatory telegram will not be sent this year," Peskov said during a regular press briefing, adding that this was due to the fact that this year was marked as "the culmination of an unfriendly policy towards" Moscow.

The relations between the two countries continued to deteriorate over the past months since Russia's invasion on Ukraine, with the Biden administration noting that now is not the right moment for the resumption of talks between Moscow and Washington. Western economies are expected to introduce new sanctions against Moscow that will cap the price of Russian oil.
