Relations between the two countries had reached a low since Russia’s increased intervention in Crimea in 2014 by invading Ukraine. Apart from this, Russia was also accused of interfering in Syria in 2015 and then helping Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. However, the Vladimir Putin administration has consistently denied these allegations. Relations between the two countries worsened in March this year when US President Biden called Putin a killer. After this Russia called back its ambassador from Washington. In response, in April, the US called its diplomat from Russia.
