“In any country we support the candidate who wants to build with us and good neighborly relations”, – said the President to journalists before departure to Moscow from Kyrgyzstan, which hosted the summit of the CIS. As for the election campaign in the United States, the Russian government, according to Putin, are sympathetic to those “who expresses the need to build relations with Russia on a peaceful basis and sees in this a profound meaning for their country and for the world community.”
As is known, this requirement says the candidate of the Republican party, Donald trump. The General sense of his public appearances is that the US attitude to Russia needs to be radically changed and the Russian and the American people need to find a common language. In addition, trump said that in his opinion, Vladimir Putin is a stronger President than Barack Obama.
The rhetoric of Democrat Hillary Clinton has the opposite meaning. According to her, Russia is a threat to American security and in need of containment. In particular, NATO led by USA must stop the Kremlin’s attempts to change post-war borders of Europe. Putin himself Clinton once called a bully and “a man without a soul.”
However, Vladimir Putin gave to understand that he is not too impressed by the special role that he unwittingly took in election debates overseas candidates. “I hope that this is due to the growing influence of Russia,” chuckled GDP, answering a question of journalists, But, rather, it attempts to manipulate public opinion, the desire to recreate the image of the evil Empire to scare this man in the street”.
According to the President, this tactic has nothing to do with the essence of the problems facing the United States. “But the problems” – did not fail to add it. But a special novelty in these no stuffing. “And we during the election campaign to the state Duma, too, was stuffing with reference to sensitive things, but far from those millions of people”, – Putin said, apparently referring to the recent publication FBK Alexei Navalny on the Royal estate in ples who allegedly owns the leader of “United Russia” Dmitry Medvedev.
