Russia's top politician refers to US president as terrorist

(MENAFN) Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the Russian parliament, has referred to US Vice President Joe Biden as a "terrorist" in response to a Seymour Hersh investigation that claimed Washington was responsible for damaging the Nord Stream pipelines last year.

In his State of the Union speech, Biden asserted that the US was "a nation that shines as a light to the globe," which, according to Volodin, was reminiscent of "statements by the leaders of the Third Reich."

Hersh's study revealed the effects of this "ideology of exceptionalism," the Russian MP said in a Telegram message.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist stated in a report released on Wednesday that the US was responsible for the explosions on the Nord Stream pipelines in September. The State Duma speaker was making reference to the report. An educated source who spoke to Hersh claimed that US Navy divers put bombs at the important pipelines in the Baltic Sea back in June 2022 under the pretense of a NATO drill. Later, they were remotely detonated.
