    Documents recently released by whislteblowing website WikiLeaks show that US Democratic party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used to voice positive wordings in regard to Russia and its President Vladimir Putin in 2013-2014, in contrast to her recent statements, the Fox News broadcaster reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, WikiLeaks released a batch of Clinton's presidential campaign chairman John Podesta's emails containing what the website claimed to be excerpts from the paid speeches the nominee made for the Wall Street delivered in some recent years. Since then, the whistleblowers have released four more portions of Podesta's letters.

    The Fox News broadcaster reported Wednesday that the released speech excerpts contained Clinton's quotes about her will "to build a more positive relationship with Russia" that could result in cooperation with the United States "on some issues."

    The former secretary of state also had called the Russian leader "engaging" and "very interesting conversationalist," the broadcaster added.

    The media outlet added that Clinton's wordings contrasted with her policy in regard to her rival Donald Trump, whom she had repeatedly accused of alleged links with Moscow and his positive remarks regarding Russia and Putin.

    The Unites States is expected to elect its next president on November 8.
