U.S. sanctions backfire American business, the Russian presidential aide says
Russia hopes that U.S. president-elect Donald Trump will lift sanctions upon it, the Russian president's aide Sergey Glaziev claimed, the UNIAN agency reports.
"I think that Trump, as a reasonable man, will cancel anti-Russian sanctions hurting American business either. Thus the commodity turnover and financial-economic relations between Russia and both USA and the West will resurge and probably keep increasing with dependence on the economic situation only," he said on Wednesday.
According to the earlier reports, during his presidential campaign, newly elected U.S. leader claimed he intended to establish 'very, very good relations' with Russia.
Donald Trump, who was eventually announced a winner on Wednesday, also had been repeatedly accused of being unrighteously backed by Russia and sympathies towards Vladimir Putin.
