In response to interviewer Pavel Zarubin’s question about who is considered “best for us” between Democrat Biden and Republican Trump, Putin said: “Biden is more experienced and his actions are predictable.”

Putin stressed, however, that he is "ready to work with any American president."

He added: "Biden is an old-school politician, but we will work with any president who has the trust of the American people."

Trump is the most likely candidate in the Republican Party race to challenge Biden in the November 5 elections.

Former President Trump had previously said that he had a “wonderful relationship” with President Putin when he held the reins of the White House between 2017 and 2021.
