Putin refuses “to sink to the level of this irresponsible “kitchen” diplomacy.”

In a stunning move, the Russian President Vladimir Putin will not retaliate against Obama’s sanctions. They took the high road. Russia, they said, refuses “to sink to the level of this irresponsible “kitchen” diplomacy.”

The cagey President got all his licks in yesterday through his foreign minister and spokesman who talked of Obama’s “paranoia”.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday that he would recommend an equivalent response to Obama’s retaliation for unproven allegations of hacking. The Russian spokesman Peskov said that the Russians would mirror the response and “make Washington officials feel very uncomfortable as well”.

This morning, the Russian President took the road Obama never takes – the high road!. A Kremlin statement said that Russia will not expel any Americans in retaliation to U.S. moves.

The only thing that could make Obama look more irrelevant than calling him a lame duck as the Russians did yesterday is to ignore his 11th hour attack.

In the Kremlin’s statement Putin said that Russia won’t cause problems to U.S. diplomats or deport anyone, adding that Russia has the right to respond in tit-for-tat manner, but it will not engage in irresponsible diplomacy.

The punchline was striking.  “It’s a pity that the current U.S. administration is finishing their work in such a manner”,  adding that Russia refuses “to sink to the level of this irresponsible “kitchen” diplomacy.”

Putin ended by congratulating U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, and the American people on the New Year and invited the children of U.S. diplomats to a holiday celebration at the Kremlin.

With one statement, Obama lost the diplomatic war to Putin

It didn’t end there, Putin invited the children of U.S. diplomats to a Christmas show at the Kremlin.

From the full statement posted on the Kremlin website [translated page]:

“We reserve the right to retaliate, but we will not sink to the level of this irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy. We will take further moves on restoring Russian-American relations based on the policies that the administration of President-elect Donald Trump adopts,”

And with that one statement, Obama, the self-described wizard of diplomacy, lost the diplomatic war with Russia.

  1. Americanso would have been MUCH better off with Putin the past 8 years. Barack Hussein Obama isn’t even a man. He’s a small, narcissistic, petulant, vindictive infant, and a gross embarrassment to our country, as well as the world.

    • Yes and your comment is a sad commentary on the state of the nation for allowing that nonsense and destruction to 8 years. The USA needs lots of healing.

    • The stories these people write with to stir up anti-Russian sentiment indicates how desperate they are.

      • This hacking by Russians and others has been going on for years while Obama golfed and tried to turn us into socialists. He ignored it, now he’s blowing it out of all proportion to hurt Trump. I don’t believe them. Why should I? They lie.

  3. You know….It’s a damn shame when the president of another country has to be responsible for us because our sorry ass excuse for president can’t & won’t admit that he is wrong & that they just lost because we are tired of the lies & deceit.

  4. obama is finally getting around to destroying America. He has been doing the little things all along to hurt the US. but, not he is on an all out assault on this country. Is he that petty or is he the Manchurian candidate? Not that it matters, the damage is done and I am sure it will continue for another 3 weeks.
