Trump won't mind to lift sanctions against Russia

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump suggested he is open to lifting sanctions on Russia, though he plans to keep them for "at least a period of time."

Censor.NET reports citing the Wall Street Journal.

Trump told he might do away with the sanctions if Russia helps the U.S. battle terrorists or with other goals important to the United States.

"If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody's doing some really great things?" he said in the interview.
