The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that at the election of the President of the United States was not Pro-Russian candidate, but was anti-Russian, RIA Novosti reported.
“There was no Pro-Russian candidate, is, in my opinion, obviously… But there was a candidate with such a pronounced Russophobic attitude. Don’t like the “Russophobic” — let’s say “anti-Russian” stance. Here was a different story. The story is that one candidate clearly expressed anti-Russian views and, perhaps, against this background, many felt that the second candidate will be Pro-Russian. This was not” — said Zakharov, the radio station “Echo of Moscow”.
She also noted that the US President-elect Donald trump did not enjoy the support of Moscow.
“We never said we supported Donald trump, or not support him, this has never happened before”, — said Zakharov.
Victory in the US presidential election November 8, 2016, was won by Republican Donald trump, who beat the democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
