Washington will not return to the political path of the previous administration, which was characterised by strong anti-Russian sentiments. Such confidence was expressed by a member of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Sergei Tsekov told “Tape.ru” on Wednesday, February 15.
“He will pursue a policy, unlike the policies of [former US President] Barack Obama. There is confidence that it will be much softer and more friendly towards Russia”, — said the Senator, commenting on the words of a Republican on the excessive softness of Obama’s attitude to Russia in the question of supplies of Crimea.
At the same time, Tsekov said that it is too early to make predictions about the development of Russian-American relations. “You must wait for specific claims trump, and then draw conclusions about what policies he will pursue,” said he.
Earlier Wednesday, a new American President on Twitter commented on the position of the previous government in relation to the Crimean issue. “If he (Barack Obama — ed. “Of the tape.ru”) is too soft toward Russia?” — he wrote.
February 14, press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer said that trump allegedly expects the Russian government’s steps to return Crimea under the control of Ukraine. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia is discussing with other countries the issues associated with their territory.
During the election campaign, trump noted that in case of his election victory, is ready to consider recognition of the Peninsula as Russian territory.
