Putin says Russia prefers Biden to Trump because he is ‘more experienced and predictable’

MOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin says that Russia would prefer to see U.S. President Joe Biden win a second term, describing him as more experienced and predictable than Donald Trump. That’s even though Moscow strongly disagrees with the current administration’s policies. Putin’s comments during an interview with Russian state television Wednesday were his first about the upcoming U.S. presidential election. That election is likely to pit Biden against Trump. The remarks come at time of heightened tension between Russia and the West and deep disagreements in the U.S. about how best to counter Russia and help Ukraine. Kyiv is fighting Moscow’s forces. Putin’s comments were rare praise for Biden, a fierce critic of the Russian leader who has frequently lauded Trump.
