Vladimir Putin finally congratulates Joe Biden on winning the U.S. election, his message to Biden came a day after the Electoral College confirmed Biden as the nation’s next president amid President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede that he had lost in the November election.

Putin was one of the last world leaders who had not acknowledged Biden’s victory, saying he would hold off on congratulating until the winner was officially confirmed.
