President Joe Biden arrived in Geneva ahead of lengthy talks planned with Vladimir Putin, the highpoint of a European tour that is intended to show western solidarity before the momentous summit set to take place.

Prior to the meeting, the Russian President sat down with NBC News where he criticized the Biden administration over the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.

In the interview, Putin made a bold accusation that the United States government assassinated the unarmed Trump supporter Ashli Babbit, and he wants to know the killers name, according to reports.

OANN reporter Jack Posobiec tweeted out Putin’s accusation, saying:

“Two days before the summit, Putin has publicly accused the US government of assassinating Ashli Babbitt”

At this time, there are many unanswered questions revolving around Ashli Babbitt’s death, and her family is demanding answers. 

Putin is calling for the name of the person he says “murdered” Ashli, and is going a step further to call for the name of the person who he says ordered the kill in the first place. 

OANN’s Jack Posobiec then posted Putin’s words, saying:

“Putin: Who ordered the assassination of the woman who walked into the Congress and was shot and killed by a policeman?”

Daily Mail reported on the NBC New interview, saying:

“Vladimir Putin has accused the US of ‘persecuting political opinions’ for arresting the MAGA mob at the Capitol siege, ahead of his summit with Joe Biden on Wednesday.

“The Russian president was asked about his jailing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in an interview filmed in Moscow last week before his meeting with Biden in Switzerland.

“And he replied by hitting back at the US, equating the arrest of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol with his treatment of Navalny.”

He said: 

“We have a saying: ‘Don’t be mad at the mirror if you are ugly,’” he said. “It has nothing to do with you personally. But if somebody blames us for something, what I say is, why don’t you look at yourselves? You will see yourselves in the mirror, not us.”

He told US broadcaster NBC News:

“You are presenting it as dissent and intolerance toward dissent in Russia. We view it completely differently,”

He then pointed at the January 6 MAGA raid on the Capitol, saying:

“Do you know that 450 individuals were arrested after entering the Congress? … They came there with political demands.”

Putin also reiterated denials that the Kremlin was behind last year’s poisoning of Navalny with a nerve agent that nearly killed him, The Daily Mail reported.

Putin claimed:

“We don’t have this kind of habit, of assassinating anybody,” 

Referring to Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer as she tried to climb through a window that led to the House floor, Putin said:

“Did you order the assassination of the woman who walked into the Congress and who was shot and killed by a policeman?”
