Vladimir Putin reportedly congratulated Donald Trump for officially assuming office and wished him success in his future activities, during the two controversial leaders' first conversation since the inauguration.

Below is the readout of the conversation between the two leaders per the Kremlin

Vladimir Putin congratulated Donald Trump on taking office and wished him every success in his work.


During the conversation, both sides expressed their readiness to make active joint efforts to stabilise and develop Russia-US cooperation on a constructive, equitable and mutually beneficial basis.


Mr Putin and Mr Trump had a detailed discussion of pressing international issues, including the fight against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East, the Arab-Israeli conflict, strategic stability and non-proliferation, the situation with Iran’s nuclear programme, and the Korean Peninsula issue. The discussion also touched upon the main aspects of the Ukrainian crisis. The sides agreed to build up partner cooperation in these and other areas.


The two leaders emphasised that joining efforts in fighting the main threat – international terrorism – is a top priority. The presidents spoke out for establishing real coordination of actions between Russia and the USA aimed at defeating ISIS and other terrorists groups in Syria.


The sides stressed the importance of rebuilding mutually beneficial trade and economic ties between the two counties’ business communities, which could give an additional impetus to progressive and sustainable development of bilateral relations.


Mr Putin and Mr Trump agreed to issue instructions to work out the possible date and venue for their meeting.


Donald Trump asked to convey his wishes of happiness and prosperity to the Russian people, saying that the American people have warm feelings towards Russia and its citizens.


Vladimir Putin, in turn, emphasised that the feeling is mutual, adding that for over two centuries Russia has supported the United States, was its ally during the two world wars, and now sees the United States as a major partner in fighting international terrorism.


The two leaders agreed to maintain regular personal contacts.


The conversation took place in a positive and constructive atmosphere.

As Putin spokesman Pesko later added, cited by Interfax, the issue of lifting Russian sanctions was not discussed in conversations between the two presidents. We look forward to CNN's (and Chuck Schumer's and John McCain's) spin on this.

It's pretty great that Cold War 2.0 is finally over. One less thing to terrize people with...

Thank God.

I'm sure it's breaking "The Great War Hero's" heart, too...along with many of the other Deep State shills.

I can't help but notice that the elected traitorous assholes have been a little quiet lately.

Obviously Trump and Co understood who's the greatest menace to the Western Civilization and European emerged cultures and that Russia is actually a desirable ally in this battle of civilizations and it would be a mega stupidity to not have Russia as friend - my enemy's foe is my friend.

Ha! About fucking time. It's over for I CIA SIS. The Deep State / CIA Rouge Elements are in their final days. This is Epic.


I hope you are right but I don't think the MIC will take this sitting down. Too much money at stake. I expect McCain and Lindsey Graham to have some choice comments

You are correct. McCain and Graham are either bent over or on their knees when taking things.

And we were helping the White Russians against the Bolsheviks during the revolution. Well everybody was white, but White's with a capital W were fighting Lenin and Bolsheviks. Hard to talk about the Russian Revolution without trigger words. Sorry.


Sort of, Rothschild and the Morgan Trust financed both sides.

I'ts clear that very bad times are comming for the muslims - denounce and leave your fucked up religion and survive otherwise you'll not be spared by the wrath of the ones you terrorized for centuries.

Ain't gonna be easy and plenty of ups a downs along the way, but that's a good start.

Meanwhile he's hard at work with cold war 2.0 with China... which may not stay a cold war for long if he fucks with Taiwan

I think here is where Putin comes into play. Putin/Russia can be the mediator/balancing factor. A balanced, tri-polar world can work awesome to get rid of the Islam scum. Russia, China old surviving cultures and civilizations understand that a mutually assured destruction is not the desirable choice when well, long surviving culture and civilization is a priority and it seems that America matured and understood also; the only locco kid in the town who wants everybody dead and everything for himself is well, Muhammad Islam ...

And the left wanted to prevent this type of cooperation between the two nations.

Disgusting animals (no offense to animals intended)


Ignatius's picture

The so-called left has intellectually trapped itself.  Pathetic.

Trump is speaking the working man's language of the real Left:  peace and prosperity.

GUS100CORRINA's picture

When I think about the "Left" ... one word comes to mind.


The left truly is made up of selfish warmongering 'narcissistic' DESPOTS with REPROBATE MINDS who are losers.

Parasitic part of "Ukraine" is west most former polish lands,

over time they mutated Russian language

"Parasitic Ukraine" used to be known as the Pale of Settlement, and was heavily populated by Jews who dominated the banking and trading businesses, among others. Odessa, home of revolutionary Vladimir Jabotinsky, was a center of the early Zionist movement and the "gateway to Zion" for European Jews migrating to Palestine.

I hope that Trump will just leave dealing with Iran on Russia but since Trump is also ego maniac he sure will be fuckin' with them as he has already started.

It's about time we had an adult in the White House. Both want to destroy ISIS and tell the EU to go to hell. Let's shake hands and get to work!

Add a few more islamist terror attacks on European soil and we can start burning mosques all over the west, ban EBT for those who didn't pay in and make snowflake lives miserable.

Does this mean we push back the nuclear clock now?... Say 11:45pm?
