Biden: Russia will hack elections in Europe

"You're fighting both the cancer of corruption. and the unrelenting aggression of the Kremlin", Biden told reporters, standing alongside Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Russia's foreign ministry described the lawsuit as motivated by "political aims" and said that Moscow would use "all means of legal protection available to it", according to Russian-controlled TASS news agency.

The vice president gave his vigorous defence of the liberal order a day after China's President Xi Jinping gave the keynote speech at Davos that stressed his commitment to globalisation, also in contradiction to expected Trump policies.

"The US and Europe have to lead the fight" to protect liberal values, he said, stressing that the military alliance of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) must remain a key element in US-EU relations.

However, with a change of guard under way in the USA presidency, President-elect Donald Trump has openly advocated for better relations with Russian Federation.

Biden, a harsh critic of President-elect Donald Trump, mused that his outspoken remarks will not end when his White House role ends on Friday.

Southern drivers suspend strikes ahead of new talks

Seasonal favourites boost Greggs' sales

US Congressman Mike Doyle to Boycott Trump's Inauguration
And many claim it's because Trump criticized Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis. Cohen said he would not be attending the inauguration because of Trump's lack of American values.

And, while what Biden said applies broadly to leaders in Europe, as well as the United States, there is no mistaking that his comments were a rebuttal to Trump's previous statements about the Russian president.

Trump has called North Atlantic Treaty Organisation "obsolete", complaining Europe does not pay its share, and that the alliance has not focused enough on terrorism. "That can never be placed in question".

Biden defended the findings and predicted that this won't be the last time Putin will attempt to undermine another country's elections.

On how Trump will impact our foreign relations: Biden was asked about Trump potentially warming relations with Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, becoming more confrontational with Iran, and how he will deal with fighting ISIS. "But it is at our own peril that we ignore or dismiss the legitimate fears and anxieties that exist in communities all across the developed world".

Biden didn't merely implore the world leaders in attendance at Davos to maintain the status quo.

"We need to tap into the big heartedness", Biden said.
