American elections split Russian elite

Political and Russia's business elite has been split over the US elections, writes the German business daily Handelsblatt.

For example, Russian wealthy people such as Leonard Blavatnik, Viktor Vekselberg and Semyon Kukes staked on the victory of Republican Donald Trump, becoming a sponsor of his election campaign. Others bet Democrat Joe Biden to win. The Russians hope he will ease sanctions and compromise on arms control.

Russian circles have already hinted to the Americans that Biden's victory is desirable for Moscow. Although he is not enthusiastic about the construction of Nord Stream 2, he is not as categorical as Trump. This makes it much easier to reach a compromise.

Moscow believes that Biden will "return normal diplomats" and "remove dubious" hawks "from economics". This will make it possible to agree on many issues of bilateral and international relations.

Managing Director of the international geopolitical consulting firm Kissinger Associates, Inc. (New York) Thomas Graham noted that under Biden, Washington would be interested in holding talks with Moscow on a variety of issues. This company is owned by former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who is highly competent in political affairs.

The same opinion is shared by the general director of the Russian International Affairs Council Andrei Kortunov. He is confident that Biden will begin to revive the "transatlantic unity" that was broken by Trump. But it can only be restored by solving a number of problems with the European Union, including those of an energy nature.

      All those who hope for something about the Yankees are traitors and bastards for the Russian people. Do they think that at least Trump, at least Biden WILL HELP THEM ??? They ! For ANY American leadership sees Russia as a dismembered corpse-prey. And not to understand this, to hope for something - to the highest degree to be in captivity of the DEEPEST delusions or to be the one who sells the Motherland in wholesale and retail!

    Article from beginning to end heresy and lies. On the contrary, the Russian liberal oligarchs stand for their fellow liberals and patrons in the form of D. Biden. D. Biden and his little sons incited Ukraine against the Russian Federation, there will be no changes, measures will only be toughened against the Russian Federation, and not only economic, but also political from globalists ... D. Biden is the worst option for the Russian Federation, but rich traitors in the form of the Fridmans, Vekselbergs, Avens, the majority, so they secretly campaigned for D. Biden, if it will ruin the United States, but various hawks - globalists will act for Biden ...

      D. Biden - the worst option for the Russian Federation

      Yeah, Trump is so sweet. How many sanctions were introduced under him, how many treaties were destroyed. Both of them.

    It is such an outrageously naive thought to think that the Americans will soften something for Russia or will talk. This is how you have to be naive or stupid to believe in it and even more so to hope. They rightly said that they would press and press harder.
    And Biden is just a person who will only speak and voice what he will be told from behind. What can he say himself if he called Trump George, forgot ?? !!!

    Russia will be comfortable in all respects if America disappears as a state altogether, falling apart into small fragments, and this is still ahead. The process of "color revolutions" launched by it backfired on it too, so let's hope that everything will turn out there as in Syria, Libya , Ukraine, etc.

      Valentine, it would not be bad, but this is unlikely ... It would be enough (at least) to have a civil war.

    There is absolutely no difference between Trump and Biden for Russia. The empire falls, it dies. They will put pressure on absolutely everyone, in convulsive attempts to bring everything back, to cling to the top and hold on there, but they will especially put pressure on those who are feared and hated, who contributed to the fall. It is impossible to stop the fall, the process is in progress and cannot be stopped. The task of Russia is to resist (as has happened more than once in history) and at the same time not to allow the wounded Minotaur to rise.

    Yes, both are worse (c)
    This statement is attributed to Comrade Stalin, I don’t know ...
    Until the final Russian, as we have not decided with another well-known issue (and we are all Russians in the Russian Federation, in their opinion, without exception), will not calm down.
    You have to get to the Five at the entrance, take a chilled broiler, the price does not depend on the dollar exchange rate, 110 rubles, or something, for many years ...

    Morons, further along Lavrov. Who cares who will be president, America will still pursue a Russophobic policy and will stick a spoke in the wheels of Russia wherever possible. Plan ** Anaconda ** has not yet been canceled. wassat
