The Democrats are so angry with Russia they're willing to sort a war to distract from revelations of corruption, malfeasance and criminality. Putz Biden snarling at Putin is like a small dog barking at a wolf. And, they claim its Trump who'll start a war!
The Kremlin on Saturday fired back at Washington for planning an “unprecedented” retaliatory cyberattack against Russia, vowing to protect itself from the “unpredictability and aggressiveness of the United States”.
“The threats directed against Moscow and our state’s leadership are unprecedented because they are voiced at the level of the US vice president,” RIA Novosti news agency said, quoting a Kremlin spokesman.
“To the backdrop of this aggressive, unpredictable line, we must take measures to protect (our) interests, to hedge risks.”
The comments come a day after Vice President Joe Biden told NBC that the US planned to “send a message” to Russian President Vladimir Putin that a “clandestine” cyber-operation would be launched in response to Russia’s alleged interference with the presidential election. Last week, Washington publicly blamed Russia for cyberattacks against Democratic Party organizations.
Washington will take aim at Russia “at the time of our choosing and under the circumstances that have the greatest impact,” Biden said.
Moscow called threats of an American cyber response “borderline insolence,” according to Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov.
Washington formally accused Russia last week of attempting to interfere with the presidential campaign.
Russia has been accused of backing GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has repeatedly praised Putin.
