In a New Year telegram to US President Donald Trump, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said a constructive dialogue between the two nations is essential for global stability.

The Kremlin said Saturday that Putin emphasized in his Seasons Greetings to Trump that Russia and the US could develop a “pragmatic cooperation aimed at long-term perspective” on the basis of “equality and mutual respect.”

Putin noted that “the development a constructive Russian-US dialogue is particularly important for strengthening strategic stability in the world and finding the optimal answers to global threats and challenges.”

Ties between Moscow and Washington sank to a post-Cold War low following Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the allegations of its meddling in the US presidential election last year.

    , I suggest you google some of Putin’s speeches before the UN, and before the World Economic forum, as well as his interviews with western journalists ( where thwart he actually said never seems to make it into western news). Putin is the most intelligent, circumspect, sane politician there is today. He really is our only hope against the out of control monster that is the warmongering USA, and the US led posse that is NATO. Anyone who actually gets informed ( really, listen to him yourself) cannot but be impressed with this remarkable man. Only the ‘Facebook immersed, stretched because of the kids and the so no time to actually read or think‘ populace believes diffe ly, and sadly, that’s too many westerners. Truth is the Daughter of Time.
