SIRIUS, Russia (Sputnik) - Russia does not care who will be elected as the next US president as it is ready to have a "productive relationship" with whoever ends up in the White House, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said on Monday.
"We do not care at all who is elected president of the United States. We are ready to establish a productive relationship with any person elected, which is something [Russian President] Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has stated on numerous occasions. That is our policy," Medvedev told the Znanie (Knowledge) education forum taking place on the sidelines of the Russian-hosted World Youth Festival.
At the moment, the remaining US Republican Party presidential hopefuls are former US President Donald Trump and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Trump has secured robust victories in all the states where the Republican primaries took place to date, except one — the Democrat-majority District of Columbia, where Haley secured more votes on Sunday.
On the Democratic Party side, incumbent US President Joe Biden won in a landslide the party's primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and Michigan. Biden's competition includes writer Marianne Williamson, who suspended her campaign in February, but announced later that she was going to resume, while his other rival is Congressman Dean Phillips.
