This week’s Sunday show circuit is expected to center on the Jan. 6 anniversary earlier this week as well as upcoming talks between Russia and the United States as tensions between the two nations rise.

Talks between Russia and the U.S. are set to begin Monday. A senior Biden administration official told reporters on Saturday that the U.S. plans to initiate talks about military exercises in Eastern Europe and missile placements during its meetings with the Russian delegation.

Blinken’s comments seems to be a jab at Russia after the Collective Security Treaty Organization — comprised of five former Soviet allies and Russia — sent troops into the politically unstable Kazakhstan.

“If Antony Blinken loves history lessons so much, then he should take the following into account: when Americans are in your house, it can be difficult to stay alive and not be robbed or raped,” Russia’s foreign ministry said on Telegram, saying the secretary of State’s comment was “typically offensive,” Reuters reported.

Blinken will appear Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” and CNN’s “State of the Union.”

In his speech, Biden accused Trump of spreading a “web of lies” that laid the groundwork for the attack by a mob of his supporters last year and directly disputed the former president’s claims, which he and his allies have maintained for some time without evidence, that Biden won the election with fraudulent votes.

Former President Trump responded to President Biden’s Jan. 6 speech, claiming that Biden’s allusion to his role in the attack deepened political divides in the country.

“This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed,” Trump said. The former president further reiterated his baseless claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

“That day and the days after, they were the defenders of our democracy. Pelosi stated that their patriotism and courage are still an inspiration.
