Pro-Russia Pundits Lash Out at Kremlin Over Biden's Ukraine Visit

Pro-Kremlin pundits on Monday angrily responded to President Joe Biden's surprise trip to Ukraine's capitol, blasting Russia for allowing it to happen and calling it a "humiliation."

The White House gave Russian President Vladimir Putin "hours" notice before Biden's unannounced trip, in which he met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and toured the capital, Kyiv, Business Insider reported.

Russian state TV host Sergey Mardan called Biden's visit a "demonstrative humiliation of Russia" in a Telegram message to his more than 231,000 subscribers — and posted on Twitter by Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

Mardan was angry Russia didn't take action as it wages the "holy war that we are waging with the entire West," and added: "Apparently, in a holy war lunch breaks happen," Insider reported.

Ex-Russian military commander Igor Girkin said in a Telegram post that Biden — who he disparagingly called "grandfather" — could be taken to the frontlines of the war in Bakhmut, Ukraine, and nothing would happen to him, Insider reported.

"Joe Biden arrived in Kyiv," Girkin wrote, Insider reported.

"I won't be surprised if they will bring grandfather (he's not good for anything, except for uncomplicated provocations anyway) to Bakhmut as well... AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO HIM."

Also, a Telegram account run by the Russian army and naval service members angrily pointed out Biden made it to Kyiv before Putin, Insider reported.

"Almost a year after the start of the Special Military Operation, in the Russian city of Kyiv we were waiting for the president of the Russian Federation, not the United States," the post stated.

In an earlier tweet, Anton Gerashchenko, former deputy minister at the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, called Biden's visit to Kyiv the "most important one in the whole history of Ukraine-US relations."
