Biden says Putin criticism of US human rights ‘ridiculous’

US President Joe Biden said Russian President Vladimir Putin had made “ridiculous” comparisons on human rights, following their summit in Geneva.

Responding to comments from Putin about the January storming of the US Capitol, Biden tells reporters: “That’s a ridiculous comparison. It’s one thing for literally criminals to break through a cordon, go into the Capitol, kill a police officer and be held accountable, than it is for people objecting, marching on the Capitol and saying you are not allowing me to speak freely.”
