As we’ve said before, the Biden administration has some mixed feelings about getting into a direct confrontation with Russia over its invasion of Ukraine. At first, the administration sanctioned everything but energy and continued buying oil from Russia, with the explanation that the United States imports only 10 percent of its oil from Russia. Then there’s climate envoy John Kerry, who’s counting on Russia to be a partner in things like the Paris Accords. And speaking of Kerry, there’s also his precious Iran nuclear deal to consider.
Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon is reporting Wednesday that the Biden administration’s new Iran deal will remove sanctions so that a Russian energy firm can build Iran a nuclear power plant.
BREAKING: New Iran Deal Lets Russia Cash in on $10 Billion Contract To Build Nuke Sites — Biden admin will waive sanctions so Russia's top energy firm can build contested Iranian nuke plant, enriching Moscow even as Ukraine sanctions bite https://t.co/imW59BRXTY

Russia’s top state-controlled energy company is set to cash in on a $10 billion contract to build out one of Iran’s most contested nuclear sites as part of concessions granted in the soon-to-be-announced nuclear agreement that will guarantee sanctions on both countries are lifted.
Russian and Iranian documents translated for the Washington Free Beacon show that Rosatom, Russia’s leading energy company, has a $10 billion contract with Iran’s atomic energy organization to expand Tehran’s Bushehr nuclear plant. Russia and the Biden administration confirmed on Tuesday that the new nuclear agreement includes carveouts that will waive sanctions on both countries so that Russia can make good on this contract.
The Biden admin is enriching Russia as it invades Ukraine. Unreal. https://t.co/7EFeATvnaZ

The "We have to elect Biden to restore America's foreign policy" crowd ain't looking all that smart right now. https://t.co/cvHr7UhIvy

There is no strategic logic to Biden's foreign policy whatsoever. It only makes sense in light of corrupt motives and and globalists' drive for unipolar hegemony.https://t.co/sooeJRhsYH

This is right out of a bad movie. They're war-stroking us on one hand, while they cut backdoor deals that benefit Russia with the other, so they can appease yet another enemy…Iran. https://t.co/OU2hQxN7hs

The mental gymnastics required to defend this move will be epic. NPC’s await their nonsensical talking points. https://t.co/PcCsGoFlD5

Joe Biden has learned nothing from his failures.
While Russia invades Ukraine, he's working with them to carve out a new nuclear deal with Iran.
His fecklessness makes our enemies stronger and leaves America weaker.

This is ridiculous. Who the hell is in charge? This is Build Back Better? SMH…the man has lost it. When Saudi Arabia and UAE won't answer the phone, its a clear indication that the world has no respect for The Big Guy. #LGBFJB https://t.co/IqNRk7wMAD

And all we were asking for was a simple pipeline from Canada.
We clearly don't know how to negotiate. https://t.co/GmGOj2EE7V

This deal is being done with Russian firm Rosatom! Rosatom wholly owns Uranium One. This is public record. This is the company @HillaryClinton as SOS allowed to buy 1/4 of all US Uranium as its company execs donated $155,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation! Again all public record! https://t.co/asDjMU8yRK

Maybe Biden didn’t misspeak during the State of the Union when he talked about Vladimir Putin winning the hearts of the Iranian people.
