Russian President Vladimir Putin is refusing to congratulate Joe Biden upon his election to president-elect on Saturday, because there are still “legal processes” to go through.
Russia would only recognise a new president on confirmation of “official results,” his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, without elaborating on what exactly that would mean.
“We believe the correct thing to do is wait,” he told journalists. “President Putin has on many occasions said he would respect any choice the American nation makes.”
