Biden calls Putin "butcher" and says he is not sure of Russian strategic change

The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, said on Saturday that he was not sure that Russia’s announcement to focus its offensive in the Donbass region would mean a change in Moscow’s strategy in Ukraine.

“I’m not sure if they [russos] did it”said Joe Biden, in Warsaw, capital of Poland.

On Friday, the Russian military command said it wanted to focus “most efforts on the main objective, the liberation of Donbass”, in contrast to the Kremlin’s declared intention to “demilitarize and denazify” all of Ukraine.

Russian-backed separatists have controlled part of the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine since 2014, and Russian forces are fighting to increase their grip on this region, including the besieged city of Mariupol.

In a meeting with Ukrainian refugees, after being asked what he thinks of his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, in the face of what he inflicts on these people, Joe Biden classified him as a “butcher”.

This is not the first time Biden has spoken harshly about Putin, who is believed to be primarily responsible for the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has claimed thousands of lives.
