Moscow hopes that with the coming to power of US President Joseph Biden, a new chapter will begin in the development of Russian-American relations, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov told Rossiya-24 television channel on Thursday, Eurasia Diary reports citing Tass News. 

"I just returned from the inauguration, listened attentively to Biden's speech, naturally looked for something in relation to foreign policy, primarily Russia. I would like to believe that a new chapter in the development of the United States of America begins today and, of course, that a new chapter in the development of Russian-American relations begins as well. At least, we have repeatedly spoken about this," Antonov said.

Antonov noted that the Russian side got acquainted with the positions of candidates for key posts in the Biden administration. "Yesterday we spent the whole day near the TV sets, listening to the nominees and candidates, we heard a lot of information, various approaches. I can't say that we found a lot of positive in the speeches of candidates for high positions in the US administration," he admitted. "I would say: let's wait a little. It is one thing - promises, public speaking, and another thing - these are real problems, real work that the administration will have to do starting today."
