Russian President Vladimir Putin says US-Russia relations are at their lowest point in recent years, ahead of a meeting with President Joe Biden next week.

“We have a bilateral relationship that has deteriorated to its lowest point in recent years,” Putin told NBC News, according to an NBC translation of the interview broadcast on Friday.

Mr Putin and Mr Biden will meet in Geneva on Wednesday.

The White House has said Biden will bring up ransomware attacks emanating from Russia, Moscow’s aggression against Ukraine, the jailing of dissidents and other issues that have irritated the relationship.

In the interview, Mr Putin praised former president Donald Trump as “an extraordinary individual, talented individual”, and said Mr Biden, as a career politician, was “radically different” from Mr Trump.

Asked about Biden calling him a killer in an interview in March, Mr Putin said he had heard dozens of such accusations.

“This is not something I worry about in the least,” Mr Putin said.
