Russian President Vladimir Putin heaped praise on President Joe Biden Thursday, claiming the idea that Biden has dementia, as portrayed by various U.S. and Russian media outlets, "has nothing to do with reality."

PUTIN TROLLS BIDEN'S 'EYES' AND 'SOUL' COMMENT IN SWITZERLAND

"The image of President Biden, which is portrayed by our, and even the American press, has nothing to do with reality," Putin told reporters in Moscow, as translated by the Moscow Times."Biden is a professional, you have to be very attentive when working with him so as not to miss something — because he does not miss a thing, trust me."

The Russian president further stated that his 78-year-old American counterpart is "completely of sound mind and should be taken seriously," per a translation from CNN senior global affairs analyst Bianna Golodryga, who was born in Moldova and speaks Russian.

Putin's comments come just one day after meeting face-to-face with Biden in Geneva, Switzerland.

During his solo press conference following the summit, Putin called Biden a "balanced and professional man," adding "it's clear that he's very experienced."
