Biden calls Putin a 'dictator'; another 'slip of the tongue'?
Biden, in denial of US incompetence, blames the gas price hike on Putin, although the hike was there long before Putin ever did anything.
Although Americans have been feeling the heat of the soaring gas prices before anything happened on February 24, Biden redirected attention away from his incompetence to attributing the gas price increase to the "dictator" Putin, accusing him of committing a "genocide half a world away."

Biden gave the remarks in Iowa on Tuesday.
“Your family budget, your ability to fill up your tank, none of it should hinge on whether a dictator declares war and commits genocide half a world away,” said Biden.
With the sanctions against Russian oil imports, the world has entered into an abysmal energy crisis that probably won't have an easy return. While Europe bickers about where they will be getting their gas in the very near future, after cutting ties with Moscow, US fuel prices have been on the hike - an all-time high - as the West 'enjoys' sanctions against Russia.
Jake Sullivan, the US government's national security advisor, said the events so far in Ukraine don't amount to genocide. Biden himself did not address what occurred in Bucha as a genocide.

The White House is still looking for answers as to whether mass killings are the equivalent of genocide. However, textbook-wise, it simply would not work.
Genocide in the US is defined as “an act against members of a national, ethnic, racial or religious group with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part.”
Zelenksy, however, called the events in Ukraine "genocide".
West denies ongoing genocide in Donbass
Upon the start of the war, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, criticized the West for turning a blind eye to Ukraine's war crimes against civilians in eastern Ukraine and for defending Ukraine incessantly.

Lavrov stressed that Western nations protected Kiev from scrutiny even when it decided to take Donbass by force and threatened to acquire nuclear weapons and join NATO, breaking the Minsk Agreements.
"They have been turning a blind eye to war crimes against the civilian population, to the murders of women, children, the elderly, to the destruction of civilian infrastructure and silently encouraging the rapid emergence of neo-Nazism and Russophobia [in Ukraine], which ultimately plunged the country into its current tragic state", Lavrov said.
The West, according to Lavrov, unanimously denies the ongoing genocide that was taking place in Ukraine, as Kiev's military forces have been engaging in the constant killing of residents in Donetsk and Lugansk over the years.
With the popular vote, the two regions in Donbass have become independent republics, as declared by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Lavrov, furthermore, announced that Russia will be holding a special photo gallery at the UN for the UNHRC to see, exposing the suffering of the residents at the hands of the Ukrainian government in Donbass.
