President Joe Biden is smacking down Russian President Vladimir Putin’s comparing the treatment of January 6 rioters and Russia’s treatment of protesters.

At a press conference after his meeting with the Russian president, Biden was asked about Putin’s imprisonment of critics to quell the protest and his comparison to the treatment of rioters on January 6.

“My response was kind of my association, which I think was a ridiculous comparison,” Biden replied.

“It’s something for literal criminals to get in, enter the Capitol, kill a policeman and not be answered, then for people protesting and marching into the capital to say you don’t allow me to speak freely, no more. I am allowed to do A, B, C, or D. And so they are very different from the standards, ”he added.

A communicator asked Putin in a separate press conference on Wednesday, “If all your political opponents are killed, in prison, poisoned, doesn’t that send the message that you don’t want a political fight?”

“On the question of who killed whom, people rioted and went to Congress in the US with political demands and many people were declared criminals and they threatened to jail from 20 to 25 years.” Putin responded.

He continued, “These people were arrested immediately after those incidents, on what grounds we don’t always know. The states never really told us about that. One of the participants was just shot on the spot and also unarmed. Many countries are suffering exactly what we are going through. “

“We feel sorry for the United States of America, but we don’t want that to happen on our territory. We’re doing our best to not allow this to happen,” he said. more.

Protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 when lawmakers met to prove Biden’s election victory. As CBS News reports, nearly 465 people were arrested in connection with the riot.

Putin too claimed that the rioters faced “persecution for political opinions.”

His comments came as he faced pressure over his treatment of political opponents and the imprisonment of opposition leader Alexei Navalny and demonstrators who took to the streets to protest his arrest.

As ABC News notes, the protests following Nalvani’s arrest were largely peaceful but not allowed, and the demonstrators did not vandalize government buildings.
