Former Russian president calls U.S. 'refuge' for those with 'senile insanity'

The Kremlin has insulted U.S. President Joe Biden previously.
Dmitry Medvedev speaks to the Russian Security Council

Russian Security Council Deputy Chief Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday claimed the Kremlin wants the United States to be a strong country, not a final refuge for the senile.

"Moreover, unlike the American establishment, which wants the end of our Motherland, Russia wants to see the United States as a strong and intelligent country, and not the last refuge of those who gradually fall into senile insanity," Medvedev posted on Telegram, as translated by Google.

Medvedev previously served as president of Russia from 2008-2012 while current Russian President Vladimir Putin held the post of prime minister. Putin was unable to serve as president due to constitutional limits on consecutive presidential terms. After a single term, he served as prime minister under Putin until 2020 when he assumed his current office.

Medvedev made another similar slam against the United States on Monday on Telegram.

"Now the interests of the citizens of Poland have been sacrificed to the Russophobia of these mediocre politicians and their puppeteers from across the ocean with clear signs of senile insanity," he wrote, as translated by Google, in reference to Poland's alliance with the west over Russia.

Medvedev's insults may be directed at U.S. President Joe Biden, whom the Kremlin has called "forgetful" before.

Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "war criminal" and a "murderous dictator" for Russia's invasion of Ukraine.  Last week, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov responded to Biden's accusations by insulting the commander-in-chief.

"Given Mr. Biden’s irritability, his fatigue and sometimes forgetfulness ... which ultimately leads to aggressive statements, we probably will not give any sharp assessments so as not to cause more aggression," he said, according to the The Washington Post.
