The American leader reproached his opponent for not interfering with the annexation of Crimea to Russia as vice president in 2014. The previous administration sold pillows to Ukraine, while the current one supplied the country with weapons.
Donald Trump recalled that he introduced sanctions against Russia and strengthened NATO. He stated that he was forced to become president because Barack Obama and his subordinates did not work well. Joe Biden has shown that he does not agree with the statements of his opponent, Interfax reports.
Also, the head of the United States accused the ex-vice president of receiving $ 3.5 million from Russia. Biden allegedly was on good terms with the former mayor of Moscow and his wife. The candidate for the post of American leader denied this information and asked Trump to provide data on his income.
