WATCH: Joe Biden Caught Telling yet ANOTHER Blatant Lie

President Joe Biden has caused a stir by stating that he has been acquainted with Russian President Vladimir Putin for more than forty years. During an interview with ABC News’ David Muir, Biden was asked about his thoughts on Putin’s warning about the use of U.S. weapons by Ukraine to target Russian territory. However, a particular aspect of his response has attracted considerable scrutiny, leading to doubts about its accuracy.

“I’ve known him for over 40 years. He’s concerned me for 40 years. He’s not a decent man,” Biden declared.


The New York Post notes, “Putin worked as an intelligence officer in the Soviet Union’s spy network from 1975 to 1991, with postings in his hometown of St. Petersburg and the former East Germany before he retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel — making it highly unlikely Biden was aware of the future US adversary’s existence as early as he claimed.”

It also pointed to a 2000 article from The Washington Post stating, “Until he was handpicked in August [1999] by then-President Boris Yeltsin to become prime minister, Putin had never been a public figure.”
