US President Joe Biden, who was currently in Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital, for the vital NATO Summit, again made a blunder by calling his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskyy-- "Vladimir"-- during a crucial news conference on Wednesday.

"Vladimir and I... Mr Zelenskyy and I" Biden called the war-torn nation's President while addressing media persons today.

The major goof-up came after Biden held a "meaningful, powerful" meeting with President of the United States Biden in Vilnius. "We discussed in detail the situation on the frontline, our capabilities, further long-term defence cooperation, and internal Russian processes given the recent events. The United States has stood side by side with Ukraine throughout our defence against aggression. We appreciate it tremendously. Thank you personally to @POTUS, the Congress and the American people for the vitally important assistance - military, financial, political - provided to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion," he wrote on Twitter.

Notably, this wasn't the first incident when Biden had a terrific experience with media persons. On several occasions, he said, "Give me a break" when reporters questioned tough queries.

When Biden caught on a hot mic 

Earlier last year, while responding to a question about inflation, he replied to a Fox News reporter with vulgar words. Reporters in the room shouted questions after Biden’s remarks.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden about inflation, which is at a nearly 40-year high and has hurt the president’s public approval. Doocy’s network has been relentlessly critical of Biden. Doocy called out, “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”

Biden responded with sarcasm, “It’s a great asset — more inflation.” Then he shook his head and added, “What a stupid son of a b***h.”
