Putin awaits official US election results
Moscow, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) The President of Russia Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he prefers to wait for the official results of the presidential elections in the United States, before congratulating the winner.
Putin considers it necessary to wait for the clarification of all the legal details. It is a formal decision, the absence of which could not worsen any further the deteriorating relations between Washington and Moscow, he declared on the 'Moscow. Kremlin. Putin' TV program.
'We see everyone with respect: acting president Donald Trump and the Democratic presidential candidate, John Biden, that is why I do not see any problem here,' said the head of State, in a report broadcasted on the Rossiya 1 channel.
According to estimates in the US press, Biden has the support of 306 electoral commissioners and Trump has 232, when only 270 are needed in order to declare the winner.
But Trump considers himself the winner and opened several legal proceedings on the grounds that there was fraud, although he did not present any evidence.
For his part, Putin believes that if the case is viewed in its purely formal context, things should be done according to existing practice from a legal point of view.
Putin reiterated that the Russian authorities are willing to work with any elected US president, but it is important to wait for the final results of the elections in the United States and the end of the internal confrontation in that country.
