One of Vladimir Putin’s closest advisors has claimed Donald Trump’s victory has averted a third world war.
Speaking after Mr Trump won a shock victory over Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, Kremlin advisor Sergei Glazyev said the Democrat politician was a “symbol of war” and under Mr Trump the US had “a chance to change course”.
He told Russian news wire RNS: “Americans had two choices: World War Three or multilateral peace.
“Clinton was a symbol of war, and Trump has a chance to change this course”.
Relations between the two countries have sunk to their lowest point since the Cold War after Russia was accused of interfering in the election with the strategic leak of emails which were damaging to Ms Clinton and the Democrat party.
