The leader of the A Just Russia party in the State Duma, Sergei Mironov, hopes that Donald Trump’s presidency will turn a new page in Russian-US relations.
“It’s the choice of the American people. Russia will interact with the president the people of the United States will choose,” Mironov said.
“Let’s wait till the final returns. Donald Trump will take office in January. A new life will begin. I do hope that it will be a new page in relations between Russia and the United States,” Mironov told the media.
He recalled that Russia and the Soviet Union had always found it easier to clinch deals with the Republicans than with the Democrats. In particular, Mironov pointed out that Trump had no personal antagonism towards Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Candidates’ election pledges are one thing and real life is something totally different,” Mironov said.
