“The atomic rose! But, why a double Mobius?”
“Holy crap! There is a tzadikin behind this imagery.”
“And, he – is a woman!”
“Holy shit! She’s in this group photo! They usually put the commercial artist in the back row in the on-going punishment of the Co-Creators! Want to guess who she is?”
“Duh! She’s…………THE ONE IN THE RED (Rus) dress!”
“That-a-girl! Flaunt it! Look at the guy on the right taking a mental note to fire her!”
“Ros has met her.”
“MOTASOR! The octopus is a female! Look at her eyes!”
“Crap! Do you think she feels us, with her tentacles? I sense a trap!”
“Did you just say “fuck”?”
Biden did say Putin didn’t have a soul awhile back. This is a mute argument now, because The Mobius Crab – ate his soul!
“The Dingo ate your baby!”
“Biden’s light blue tie however appears to come from a children’s collection, Nikoleava said, suggesting “some sort of infantilism.”
“President Vladimir Putin disputed that President Joe Biden, during a visit to Moscow when he was still vice president, told him that he had no soul.
“I said, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, I’m looking into your eyes, and I don’t think you have a soul,’” Biden told the New Yorker at the time. “He looked back at me, and he smiled, and he said, ‘We understand one another.'”
As U.S. President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin met for their first, much anticipated summit in Geneva, Switzerland Wednesday, Russian state media put aside the many issues between the two leaders to talk about the real power dynamics on display: the leaders’ choice of ties.
Speaking to RIA Novosti, a Russian state-owned news agency which is largely obsequious to Putin, two business etiquette experts gave their take on what Biden’s light blue tie and Putin’s burgundy, geometric-patterned tie could say about their personalities. And while the consultants found that the Russian president’s neckwear signified his essential “decisiveness,” they said Biden’s looked like something a child might wear.
Business etiquette consultant Tatyana Nikolaeva, said that Putin’s tie “reflects his desire to protect the interests of the Fatherland by any means possible and to the very last of his strength”. She added that the tie’s “red tint” reflects his “decisiveness” and “determination to defend his negotiating position dynamically.” Burgundy accessories, when combined with a non-burgundy outfit, demonstrates the “creativity” and “originality” of the person, the expert said.
Biden’s light blue tie however appears to come from a children’s collection, Nikoleava said, suggesting “some sort of infantilism.” The person was not feeling very confident when they picked out this tie, she added. “It is not for nothing that our people say: an old man is twice a child.” But the light shade may also indicate a desire win over a partner, since light colours are “less frightening,” she said. The consultant added that it is as difficult to scare the Russian president as it is to win him over.
Albina Khoglova, President of the National Association of Experts on Business Ethics, Etiquette and Protocol, told RIA Novosti that Putin’s choice of color symbolizes the importance of the occasion, noting that burgundy ties are traditionally worn at high-level meetings in Russia.
Speaking about Biden’s tie, she noted that it’s worth keeping in mind that the U.S. and U.K. are not aware of this tradition. So, Biden’s blue tie should not be taken as a sign that the meeting is “unimportant.
“The list of your political opponents who are dead, imprisoned or jailed is long,” she told Russia’s autocratic leader, noting the recent poisoning and jailing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, whose supporters say he is held on politically motivated charges. (Russia says he committed fraud.)
“You have now prevented anyone who supports him to run for office,” Scott continued. “So my question is, Mr. President, what are you so afraid of?”
GENEVA—President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin sought to ease tensions during a high-profile summit, even as the Russian leader denied involvement in cyberattacks and Mr. Biden warned of significant consequences for future cyber-aggression or harm to jailed Russian dissident Alexei Navalny.
The summit, which took place in an 18th century villa overlooking Lake Geneva, came as both presidents have acknowledged that relations between the U.S. and Russia have reached a post-Cold War low in recent years. While the leaders expressed disagreements, they also offered measured assessments of each other, avoiding the heated rhetoric that has at times strained the bilateral relationship.
The summit yielded little tangible policy progress, but both leaders said they hoped it would set the stage for more cooperation over time. Mr. Biden said, however, he wasn’t confident Mr. Putin would change his behavior without pressure from the world’s democracies.
“This is not a kumbaya moment,” Mr. Biden said he told Mr. Putin. “But it’s clearly not in anybody’s interest, your country’s or mine, for us to be in a situation where we’re in another Cold War.”
Messrs. Biden and Putin met for roughly three hours total, with a break between the two sessions. They spoke at separate news conferences after the summit ended.
Mr. Biden said he was forceful with Mr. Putin about cybersecurity and human rights. The president said he presented Mr. Putin with a list of critical infrastructure that he said should be off limits to cyberattacks. The White House said it included the 16 industries that the U.S. government has for years designated as critical—such as energy and food and agriculture—that U.S. officials have said are vulnerable to potentially disruptive attacks like ransomware.
Mr. Biden also said he reminded Mr. Putin that the U.S. has significant cyber-capabilities, signaling that the U.S. is prepared to respond if Russia launches attacks.
Asked what would happen if Mr. Navalny—who was arrested and jailed earlier this year after returning to Moscow from Berlin, where he was receiving treatment for what Western officials called a poisoning attack—dies in Russian custody, Mr. Biden said, “I made it clear to him that the consequences of that will be devastating for Russia.”
Mr. Putin played down Mr. Biden’s concerns. Although he said he agreed to start consultations with Mr. Biden on cybersecurity, he denied that Moscow was involved in any cyber-sabotage.
In response to a question about the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline, which interrupted energy supplies on the U.S. East Coast and which intelligence officials say originated in Russia, Mr. Putin said: “Why Russia? We have to get rid of insinuations.”
And the Russian leader said Mr. Navalny knew he would be detained when he returned to Moscow, had broken the law and had to answer for his actions.
When pressed further on Moscow’s suppression of Russia’s opposition, Mr. Putin drew attention to racial tensions and political divisions in the U.S., seeking to paint the U.S. as unstable.
Mr. Biden laughed when told about Mr. Putin raising the pro-Trump Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. “That’s a ridiculous comparison,” he said.
Mr. Biden also raised the case of a pair of Americans who are imprisoned in Russia. The U.S. president said he was hopeful they would be released, but offered no other details on when or whether that might happen.
Mr. Putin said that he and Mr. Biden only briefly touched on the issue of Ukraine potentially joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Moscow, which recently alarmed NATO with a large buildup of troops on Ukraine’s border, has long said its western neighbor joining the alliance is a red line that shouldn’t be crossed.
Mr. Putin said the two leaders agreed that the basis for a settlement of the seven-year conflict between the government in Kyiv and Russian-backed separatists must be the Minsk agreement. The deal calls for the withdrawal of foreign-armed troops, returning the border with Russia to Ukrainian control and local elections in Ukraine’s breakaway Donbas region, which the government of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky opposes out of concern it would give Moscow a stronger foothold there.
A senior Biden administration official gave a different account of the conversation, saying Ukraine was among the areas where Messrs. Biden and Putin had clear differences. The official said there was discussion of “whether there might be grounds to actually try to unstick the Minsk process.”
Despite the disputes, Mr. Putin said he and Mr. Biden had agreed to return their respective ambassadors to their posts in an attempt to reduce tensions. Russia recalled its ambassador to the U.S. about three months ago, after Mr. Biden described Mr. Putin as a killer. Russia subsequently advised the U.S. ambassador in Moscow to return to Washington for consultations.
In a joint statement, the leaders said the two countries are planning what they called a strategic stability dialogue to lay the groundwork for arms control measures.
Mr. Putin also was complimentary of Mr. Biden, calling him an experienced statesman and a sensible partner for dialogue.
“I can say that he is a very constructive, balanced person, as I expected,” Mr. Putin said. “It seems to me that we generally spoke the same language. This doesn’t mean at all that we must necessarily look into the soul, into the eyes and swear in eternal love and friendship. Not at all, we are protecting the interests of our countries and peoples. These relations are primarily pragmatic.”
Mr. Biden gave Mr. Putin a crystal sculpture of an American bison and a pair of custom aviators, the U.S. president’s preferred eyewear.
Before the meeting started, the White House scrambled to respond to confusion over whether Mr. Biden suggested he trusted Mr. Putin. As reporters were brought into the room where Messrs. Biden and Putin were meeting, a U.S. journalist asked whether the two men trusted each other. Mr. Biden looked at the reporter and nodded affirmatively.
But the White House said Mr. Biden didn’t intend to indicate he trusted Mr. Putin. “I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior,” Mr. Biden said after the summit. “What will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world. I’m not confident of anything.”
The first session of the meeting included the two presidents and their top diplomats, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov. They then moved into an expanded bilateral meeting that included senior officials from both sides.
Throughout his first visit overseas as president, meeting Group of Seven and European leaders and the U.S.’s partners at NATO, Mr. Biden has signaled that he wants to show that the U.S. and its allies won’t tolerate what it regards as provocative actions by the Kremlin and will counter the growing influence of autocratic powers.
Mr. Putin has expressed his interest in pursuing a dialogue with Mr. Biden, describing the American president as a more predictable leader than his predecessor, but has made clear that he won’t be cowed.
Mr. Biden has faced criticism from some Senate Republicans for giving Mr. Putin what they say is an undeserved audience during his first trip as U.S. president, pointing to a spate of cyberattacks from Russia-based hackers, the Kremlin’s treatment of its political opponents and a military buildup on the borders of Ukraine.
Senior Biden administration officials worked to carefully orchestrate the event to ensure that it doesn’t further elevate Mr. Putin on the world stage, and the U.S. president prepared for the meeting for days, U.S. officials said. Mr. Biden’s aides studied how Mr. Putin interacted with past presidents and they consulted U.S. experts on Russia who have served under presidents of both main political parties.
At a 2018 summit in Helsinki, then-President Donald Trump, standing next to Mr. Putin, cast doubt on the U.S. intelligence community’s finding that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. He later told reporters he meant to say: “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia” that had intruded in the U.S. election, not what he actually said: “I don’t see any reason why it would be Russia.”
During his long career in Washington, Mr. Biden, who chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has traveled extensively to Russia and other countries in the region, and met with Mr. Putin in 2011 while serving as vice president.
Mr. Biden was cautious about inflaming tensions with the Russian leader in the run-up to the meeting. He has previously described Mr. Putin as a killer who has no soul, but this week called him “a worthy adversary.”

Despite saying at the top of his press conference that he didn’t think there was “any kind of hostility” between himself and Biden, Putin launched into a familiar diatribe of anti-US whataboutism to deflect criticism of the Russian Federation.
When asked by CNN about cyber-attacks on US institutions coming from Russian soil, Putin brought up cyber-attacks on Russia. “As far as cyber security is concerned, we agreed that we would begin consultations on that issue and I believe that it is extraordinarily important. Obviously, both sides have to assume certain obligations there,” he also said.
Probed on Russian domestic politics, Putin repeatedly criticized America’s stability and moral standing, pointing to the January 6 Capitol riot and killing of George Floyd. For many black people in America “you don’t have time to open your mouth and you are shot dead,” he said.
When asked about Russia’s crackdown on domestic political opposition — in particular the arrest of Alexey Navalny — the Russian President even suggested that the well-known dissident actually wanted to get arrested.
“This man knew that he was breaking the law of Russia. He has been twice convicted … He wanted consciously to break the law. He did exactly what he wanted to do. So what kind of discussion can we be having (about him)?”
On the subject of Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, Putin claimed that his country’s military activity in the region was entirely in line with international law, and that Americans in fact were the aggressor for “building up capabilities on the Russian frontier.” On the sensitive matter of Ukraine joining NATO, he said there was “nothing to discuss.”
Regular observers of the Russian president are accustomed to this level of confidence and dismissiveness. Putin is a man so secure in his absolute power at home that he can walk into a meeting with the most powerful person on earth with virtually nothing to lose.
What Putin walked away with
The optics of the summit were almost tailored to suit Putin’s domestic needs. The meetings were requested by the US, which as far as the Kremlin is concerned, confirms that Putin is a leader of similar stature to the US President.
“This is exactly what the Kremlin wants. To talk to the US as equals and in such a way that the other side does not demand a change of position as a condition of dialogue,” says Oleg Ignatov, Crisis Group’s senior Russia analyst based in Moscow.
“The U.S.-EU statement goes far beyond the normal scope of bilateral relations, imposing demands on China’s internal affairs in a condescending way,” its Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a regular briefing on Wednesday.
Beijing firmly opposes and rejects the “wanton interference in China’s internal affairs and the spreading of misinformation to smear China,” he added.
“The United States and European Union should reflect on their own serious issues. They have no right to act as another country’s teacher,” Zhao said.
The document also alludes to the security of Taiwan, a subject the Chinese government considers among the most sensitive. “We underscore the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and encourage the peaceful resolution of cross-Strait issues,” it reads.
References to China concluded with one sentence about “constructive engagement” in areas such as climate change and non-proliferation, but the bulk of the statement appeared only to evoke further displeasure from Beijing.
“We express our strong discontent with and firm opposition to the references to China in the Statement. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet-related issues are China’s internal affairs,” the Chinese Mission in Brussels said Wednesday.
“It is filled with outdated Cold War mentality and bloc politics rhetoric [and] does no good to regional and global peace and stability,” it said.
It added: “China is no longer like what it was in the past. The Chinese people have stood up. Intimidation will never work on us.”
Beijing first found itself in the crosshairs over the weekend when the G7 issued a communique Sunday criticizing its policies in many similar areas. It was followed by an equally strong statement by NATO, describing China as presenting “systemic challenges to the rules-based international order and areas relevant to Alliance security.”
Zhao, of China’s foreign ministry, responded to the series of Biden-led initiatives by calling the U.S. “very sick” and requiring “medication” on Tuesday.
