Newsline: Russia tells U.S. ambassador bilateral ties “on the verge of breaking”

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned John Sullivan, U.S. ambassador to Russia, and handed him a note over President Biden’s “unacceptable” comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that ties between the countries are “on the verge of breaking.” The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Biden’s comments were “unworthy of a statesman of such a high rank,” adding that any “hostile actions taken against Russia would receive a decisive and firm rebuff.” (https://news.yahoo.com/russia-tells-u-ambassador-bilateral-145408889.html) Russian officials were referring to Biden’s comments to reporters last week calling Putin a “war criminal” over Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
