In a clip, tweeted by Ukraine’s interior affairs adviser Anton Gerashchenko, Russian opposition activist Marina Litvinovich describes how large numbers of people were involved in the war, including Ukrainian civilians, military and unborn children.
Markov interrupted to say the war must stop immediately, and called the President of the United States (US) Joe Biden is the party who is actually at fault in starting this war.
“This is Joe Biden’s personal war against Putin,” Markov said as quoted by Newsweek, Saturday (25/2/2023).
“When Biden came here in 2010, he said, ‘Vladimir Vladimirovich, we advise you not to run for election,'” Markov said.

After serving the two consecutive presidential terms allowed under Russia’s then constitution, Putin stepped down in 2008, paving the way for Dmitry Medvedev to become head of state.
After four years as prime minister, Putin became president again in 2012. The constitution has been amended to allow Putin to potentially remain as president until 2036.
According to Markov, when Biden was vice president under Barack Obama, he told Putin for a third term, give Dmitry Anatolyevich (Medvedev) the presidency. Markov added that Putin had scolded him but that Biden was starting to resent him.
