Kremlin says Putin awaiting official US result to congratulate winner
Russian President Vladimir Putin is waiting for official results from the US presidential election before congratulating a winner, the Kremlin said on Monday.
“We consider it correct to wait for the official results to be finalized. I want to remind you that President Putin repeatedly said he will respect the choice of the American people,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
Many world leaders congratulated president-elect Joe Biden after he took an insurmountable lead over Donald Trump in the vote count.
