Vladimir Putin wished Joe Biden 'good health' on Thursday after the U.S. president called him a 'killer' – a description seen as an insult by the Russians and has escalated tensions between the two countries.
The Russian president made the sinister quip in an interview on state TV. Western officials have accused Putin ordering the assassination attempt of his most vocal domestic critic, Aleksei Navalny, which Putin has denied.
Putin gave his own strong response to Biden's 'killer' accusation, saying that 'it takes one to know one.'

WNU Editor: Putin's remarks caught my attention because that is how I also see people. Or to quote Buddha. When you are pointing a finger at someone, you are actually pointing three at yourself ….
…. "It takes one to know one," Putin said in televised remarks, using a saying from his childhood.
"That's not just a children's saying and a joke. There's a deep psychological meaning in this."
"We always see in another person our own qualities and think that he is the same as us."
Putin added that he wished Biden, 78, good health. "I'm saying this without irony, not as a joke."
"When I was a kid, when we were arguing with each other in the playground, we used to say, 'Whatever you say [about others] is what you are yourself,'" Putin explained.
Update: Here is an easy prediction. This is not going to happen …. Russia wants an apology from U.S. after Biden called Putin a killer, says Kremlin ally (Reuters).
