Things are looking good for improved Russian-US relations, with Presidents Putin and Trump showing signs of hitting it off. The latest evidence was a warm letter from Putin sending Xmas greetings to the President Elect, who will be sworn in on 20th January. The letter read:
Dear Mr. Trump,

Please accept my warmest Christmas and New Year greetings.

Serious global and regional challenges, which our countries have to face in recent years, show that the relations between Russia and the U.S. remain an important factor in ensuring stability and security of the modern world.

I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner - to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level.

Please accept my sincere wishes to you and your family of sound health, happiness, wellbeing, success and all the best.
 Trump responded by saying it was a "very nice letter" and revealing the contents to the media. A far cry from the days when Hillary Clinton was expected to win the election and take a much more dangerous and confrontational approach to Putin that could have led to war.
