Putin: Waiting for formalities on US election

Russia is waiting for all formalities regarding the results of the November 3 election in the United States to be done before congratulating anyone, President Vladimir Putin said in an interview on Sunday.

Speaking to Rossiya 1, Putin pointed out that there are two ways to conclude an election, either by one party conceding to the other, or through the legal process. "It is not that we like or do not like someone — we are simply waiting for an end of this internal political confrontation," the president stated.

Russia is one of a handful of countries that is yet to comment on who won the US election. Formally, the results are yet to be confirmed as President Donald Trump hasn't conceded the election after Democrat Joe Biden proclaimed victory following projections of his win by major US networks.
