Despite recommendations from his own Foreign Ministry, Vladamir Putin, appears to be taking the high road amid accusations and sanctions of election hacking. According to statements released by The Kremlin, Putin, will not expel 35 American diplomats from Russia like originally planned. The statements indicated that Putin will deal with the sanctions until Trump takes office a time in which then "ties will be mended between America and Russia".
Putin hopes that when Trump takes office "ties will be entirely mended" between the two struggling countries. Although many are suspicious as to how or why Trump and Putin have become so warmly close so fast.
