MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Russia will judge the new US administration by its deeds and will respond in kind, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday commenting on Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential elections.
"We are ready to work with any president," the minister stated. "I can’t say that all the previous US leaders were always predictable. This is life, this is politics. I have heard many words but we will judge by deeds."
Lavrov declined to say whether Trump’s victory was a positive sign for Russia. "We don’t have any preferences. As the president said, we will work with any US leader that the American people elect," the Russian top diplomat said.
According to him, Russia’s position on this matter "remains, it hasn’t changed." "We have been waiting for the American people to decide, now we have their decision," Lavrov concluded.
On Election Day, November 8, United States citizens cast their ballots and elected their 45th US President, Donald J. Trump. By securing more than the needed 270 electoral votes, Trump, the Republican candidate clinched his presidential victory.
