    US Kremlin backers seek to undermine Joe Biden

    A small but politically vocal portion of the American electorate that admires Vladimir Putin's muscular policies is seeking to undermine US President Joe Biden's efforts to stand up to the Russian president.

    Mr Biden has threatened to impose crushing economic sanctions on Moscow amid a build-up of Russian troops on the Ukrainian border. Many, in loud whispers, say that Mr Putin plans an invasion.

    But activists on the hard-right - and a few on the hard-left - of the US political spectrum say that it is Mr Biden who is "warmongering".

    Arch-conservative voters who take this view are pressuring members of Congress to take a conciliatory tone towards Russia, tamp down rhetoric and refuse authorisation to send troops to the region. They are also working to elect Republican candidates who have publicly stated that they will not intervene in Ukraine.

    The efforts have the potential to frustrate Mr Biden's Ukraine plans and reshape the Republican party's foreign policy outlook.

      I remember when the Republicans hated Russia. Now, they consider Putin a friend.
