MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Monday it is too early to assess influence of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid on Washington's relations with Moscow.
"We will watch her presidential campaign," Ryabkov said adding that Clinton's decision to run for president was widely expected.
He added that Clinton definitely hoped to win primaries but it was "still unclear what situation would be inside the Democratic Party."
Clinton officially entered the 2016 presidential race on Sunday.
"I'm running for president. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion," Clinton said in her two-minute campaign video.
In 2008, Clinton, 67, lost Democratic presidential nomination to Barack Obama. In 2009-2013 the wife of former US President Bill Clinton served as the Secretary of State.
