Russian PM says U.S.-Russia ties at low ebb but Trump 'friendly'

Russian PM says U.S.-Russia ties at low ebb but Trump 'friendly'By Polina Nikolskaya MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday that U.S.-Russia ties were the worst he could recall, but that U.S. President Donald Trump struck him as a friendly person keen to establish positive working contacts with Russia. Trump took office in January, saying he wanted warmer ties with Russia which had fallen to a post-Cold War low. Medvedev, who met Trump in Manila this month, suggested he and President Vladimir Putin both found Trump constructive and friendly in person, but accused other U.S. politicians of playing what he called “the Russian card” to achieve their own aims and influence Trump’s attitude towards Russia.
