Most Americans are hoping for better relations between the US and Russia. Gallup conducted a survey in which respondents noted that they prefer diplomacy to sanctions.
Only 36 percent of respondents supported the introduction of sanctions against Russia, while 58 percent believe it would be better for Washington to try to establish ties with Moscow, reports Tass.
Two-thirds of Americans said they followed the news about the so-called "Russian intervention" in the 2016 elections, which the White House and the Kremlin denied repeatedly. At the same time, 39 percent of respondents believe that Moscow was involved in the elections and had no influence on the outcome.
The US accuses Russia of interfering in the presidential election. Moscow rejects these speculations, pointing to their unproven nature. The president of the United States also noted that the investigation into the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, is based on personal aversion.
Remember that there are currently a number of US sanctions against the Russian Federation, under various pretexts.
