Watching Vladimir Putin’s speech on Monday, in which the Russian president said he recognized the independence of two different regions from Ukraine, “I said it’s genius,” the Republican billionaire told Conservative, a podcast.
“How clever he is,” said the former president of Mr. Putin, praising the passing of his relationship with the Russian leader.
The closeness between the two men has been the subject of strong criticism in the past.
Assuring that he knows Vladimir Putin “very well”, Donald Trump also decided in a press release that the Russian leader “would never do what he is doing now” under the Trump administration.
Trump criticizes Biden
Condemning the way his successor, Joe Biden, is handling the file, he said there was “absolutely no reason at all to account for the situation currently unfolding in Ukraine”.
Donald Trump, who is teasing the prospect of a return to the White House race, has also called the restrictions adopted by the Biden administration for the time being “weak”.
“They are insignificant in comparison to occupying a country and strategically located land,” alleged the former leader.
“Putin not only doesn’t get what he’s always wanted, but he’s getting richer and richer thanks to the boom in oil and gas,” he said.
After previously cautious sanctions, specifically targeting pro-Russian separatist regions in Ukraine, the White House on Tuesday intensified its response against Moscow, unveiling new sanctions specifically on the Russian banking sector.
