Just a few moments ago, Trump released the following letter he received from Putin.

Putin has never written such a letter to an American president.  In it, he makes it clear he is determined to try to work to reverse the damage inflicted on US-Russian relations by the hyper-aggressive neocon policies of the Obama administration, spearheaded by Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

Trump gushed about the letter, saying:

"A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct. I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path."

HIS EXCELLENCY DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENT-ELECT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 

Washington, DC 

Moscow, Kremlin 

December 15, 2016 

Dear Mr. Trump,

Please accept my warmest Christmas and New Year greetings. 

Serious global and regional challenges, which our countries have to face in recent years, show that the relations between Russia and the U.S. remain an important factor in ensuring stability and security of the modern world. 

I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner - to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level. 

Please accept my sincere wishes to you and your family of sound health, happiness, wellbeing, success and all the best. 

Sincerely, 

 

V.Putin
