In the exposed statement they also detail that, “Russia does not seek confrontation, and is open to a frank and respectful dialogue, differentiating the American people, who have always enjoyed our respect., the US authorities they encourage Russo-phobia, and of those who serve them. Precisely these people are included in the ‘black list’ of Russia”, added Foreign Affairs.
Joe Biden is on the list, sorted alphabetically in Russian, he ranks 31stfollowed by his son Hunter Biden, of the more than 900 Americans sanctioned by the Moscow government.
