U.S. Vice President Joe Biden (left) and Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to talk past each other. 

Matthew Rojansky and Michael Kimmage, CNN: Joe Biden’s oncoming headache over Vladimir Putin
(CNN)A Russian leader has already congratulated US President-elect Joe Biden on winning the presidential election. “I have met with him several times,” said Mikhail Gorbachev, the former president of the Soviet Union, on Nov. 8. “I got the impression that he understands the importance of relations with Russia. I hope that Joe Biden will strive to normalize relations and recover trust between our countries.” 
Contrast these generous sentiments with the brooding silence that has emanated from the Kremlin’s current occupant since the US presidential election was called for Biden. Soon, Biden will assume the US presidency — and with it, the headache of dealing with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
