Vladimir Putin says those spreading 'fake' Donald Trump allegations 'worse than prostitutes'

Areas where Washington might compromise with Moscow include Ukraine, a country Trump has described as "more important for Europe than the US", and Syria where he is interested in forming a coalition with Russian Federation to fight Islamic State, the extremist Islamist group also known as Isis.

While many Americans blame alleged Kremlin hacking in part for Trump's historic upset, popular expectations in Russian Federation have never been higher for an incoming administration.

Director of the Carnegie Moscow Centre Dmitri Trenin said, "Russia's potential is incomparable to that of the United States", and that it will be hard for Moscow "to play from the position of weakness and not lose".

"It's unclear if Trump will scrap the sanctions regime he inherits", says Signorelli.

Trump has taken a different approach to typical US policy on Russian Federation.

Washington has accused the Kremlin of trying to influence the United States election in November using cyberattacks.

While some argue Trump's presidency marks a revolution in US politics, little is known about his policy on Russian Federation or how he will deal with President Vladimir Putin. The populist, nationalist, fascist Vladimir Zhirinovsky-as close to a Russian version of Trump as there is-was quoted as calling Trump "a lucky bird", a reference to a kind of traditional wooden toy that some Russians hang in their homes for good fortune. And, beyond Trump, Republican Party leaders must know that if Russian Federation hacked the Democrats, their own servers must have been hacked, too.

In an interview with The Times of London published Monday, Trump said he would like to seek a deal to lift sanctions on Russian Federation in return for a bilateral agreement to reduce nuclear arsenals, Reuters reported.

Shop owners in Moscow in recent days were seen selling traditional Russian matryoshka nesting dolls decorated with Trump's image, while a group of Russian gunsmiths have fashioned a two-pound coin bearing the slogan "In Trump We Trust".

Medvedev said that while Mr. Trump's policy toward Russian Federation is unclear, "we are hoping that reason will prevail". I didn't meet him."Do they think that our special services are hunting for every US billionaire?"

"We expect a slow but steady revival of our relations", he said.

Meanwhile, a protectionist USA president and increased European suspicion of a Trump-led America are seen as potentially undermining the prospects of the planned Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which has been under negotiation for the better part of three years. What is wrong is that those concerns and policies are driven largely by anger over Putin's own nationalism, rather than by a careful consideration of the diplomatic and strategic milieu.

Don't hold out any hope, Mr. President-elect. "Yeah, I think I would get along very well".

Still, the mood at the party in central Moscow was subdued compared with outbursts of joy at the news of Mr Trump's victory in November.
