MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump got 276 electoral votes against Hillary Clinton's 218 votes out of 270 needed to win.

"Trump's victory offers hope that constructive cooperation will be organized between Russia and the United States, and that our relations will overcome the crisis," Matvienko told journalists.

"We are interested in turning the current page in the tense relations between Russia and the United States. Russia will apply all efforts to build relations," she said.
