The first Deputy head of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich said that the first month of the presidency, Donald trump did not give serious grounds to hope for improvement of relations between Russia and the United States.
“I don’t see any serious reason to change them (Russian-American relations) in a better way, despite the sincere desire of Russia will use the terminology of Donald trump to put up with US” — quoted Klintsevich “Interfax”.
“We cannot ignore the precarious situation of the current American President. It is attacked from all sides, forcing you to play by the old rules, and he seems more inclined to it. In short, my forecast is not optimistic: no matter how worse,” said the Senator.
According to the Senator, within one month after the inauguration of the trump was not removed any question relating to the prospects of development of Russian-American relations. “On the contrary, they became more,” — said Klintsevich.
However, he believes that such a provision was the result of the previous administration, “which can be said, canonized anti-Russian trend of US foreign policy, and now to reverse it will be very difficult”.
