LONDON, November 9. /TASS/. Republican Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential race has become an indicator that people in the United States want good relations with Russia, Daniel Kawczynski, a British Conservative Party politician and Member of Parliament, told TASS on Wednesday.
"Many people in the United States voted for Trump because they were worried Clinton would intensify hostility towards Russia," Kawczynski said. "I have received many reports that even staunch Democrats voted for Trump as concerned Obama and Clinton increasing confrontation towards Russia. This is the strongest signal from people, they want this confrontation to stop and stop now. I think he can and must restore relations with Russia despite the tension between both sides. That is what partly won election for Trump."
"People in the US and the UK want peace and good relations with Russia," he said, adding over the past eight years under Obama’s policies, many opportunities had been missed to improve relations with Moscow.
Kawczynski is convinced that Obama has failed to establish good working contacts with Russian President Vladimir Putin and it has had its impact on the considerable deterioration of relations between NATO and Russia.
The British politician pointed out that Trump, unlike his rival Clinton, would be capable of making a meaningful contribution to cooperation with Russia in key topical issues, including the Syria and Ukraine crises.
"I hope Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin can work together in this direction," he said, speaking about the restoration of ties between the US and Russia.
