WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden said Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has become “a pariah” around the world.
“Absolutely,” Biden said when asked if Putin has been weakened by recent events involving the head of the militant Wagner Group.
Biden, speaking to reporters at the White House prior to departing on a trip to Chicago, said Putin was clearly losing the war in Ukraine and “he’s losing the war at home, and he has become a bit of a pariah around the world.”
