US Treasury Department hack
that was blamed on Russia,
President Vladimir Putin congratulated president-elect Joe Biden on
Tuesday on his victory in the US presidential election, six weeks
after the election and one day after the Electoral College
officially declared Biden’s win.

President Trump refused to accept the election results.

to Biden for his “victory in the United States presidential

“Vladimir Putin wished the President-elect every success and
expressed confidence that Russia and the United States, which bear
special responsibility for global security and stability, despite
their differences can truly contribute to solving many problems and

Putin noted that “Russian-American cooperation based on the
principles of equality and mutual respect would meet the interests
of people in both countries as well as the entire international

“For my part, I am ready for cooperation and contacts
with you,”
Putin said. 

Most world leaders had issued formal messages in the days
following the AP calling the presidential race. China and Russia
had initially held off from the diplomatic welcome to Biden, but on
Nov. 25, a “belated
congratulations was officially made by Chinese President Xi

respect for Trump, or perhaps a recognition of America’s
constitutional process.
