According to media, citing a high-ranking source in the US Republican Party, US President-elect Donald Trump is going to visit Russia after his inauguration.
US President-elect Donald Trump will come to visit Russia after his inauguration, the Izvestiya newspaper reported, citing a high-ranking source in the US Republican Party.
“After some intra-team consultations, it was decided to postpone the visit. It will be prepared after the inauguration of Trump,” the newspaper quoted its source.
According to editor of The National Interest magazine, Dimitri Simes, Trump’s visit to Russia before the inauguration may be regarded as an “undermining of the current policy” and a desire to conduct international negotiations “behind back of Barack Obama‘s administration.”
According to the source of Izvestiya, Trump did not know about the resumption of an operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria. He also noted that now, there are “no serious contacts” between the Kremlin and the Trump’s team.
Earlier, Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a telephone conversation. The sides gave the same estimate of current relations between the two countries, describing them as unsatisfactory, and spoke in favor of active work for their normalization.
