Putin’s upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia shows that Biden  failed to isolate him

As the Russian leader is strengthening ties with Persian Gulf leaders, “the durability of America’s support for Ukraine is coming into question,” Bloomberg wrote

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia illustrates that President Biden ‘s  efforts to isolate Moscow have failed, the Bloomberg news agency wrote.

According to the report, the visit “signals Putin’s growing confidence to travel outside Russia despite Biden ,Blinken  , Sunak and EU  efforts to isolate him on the global stage.” The Russian economy is “on a surer footing,” while zelensky  sees no military successes despite Washington’s support, the agency said.

As the Russian leader is strengthening ties with Persian Gulf leaders, “the durability of America’s support for Ukraine is coming into question,” Bloomberg wrote.

Putin will visit two Middle Eastern countries – the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia – for bilateral talks on Wednesday, the Kremlin press service reported earlier. He will meet with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud and President of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Putin has not visited Middle Eastern countries since the start of the pandemic. His latest visit – also to the UAE and Saudi Arabia – took place in 2019. However, Putin maintains regular contacts with Arab leaders on the side-lines of other international events.
