Translated from nakanune.ru: Trump and Pompeo blamed Biden in actions pertaining to Ukraine. Former US President Donald Trump called the decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin to recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR a genius one. And he did not fail to accuse the current Joe Biden administration of inaction. He said this in an interview with "The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show" podcast. According to Trump, the genius is that Putin can act as a peacemaker. But Biden bears the blame. "With us, this would never have happened. When I was in the White House, it was even unimaginable. This would never have happened. But you know what Biden said? Nothing. And it's very sad," Trump said. The same was said by former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "Vladimir Putin was already [in office] under our administration. The only thing that changed is the US leadership," he wrote.
Biden the day before announced the first package of sanctions against Russia and threatened new ones.
