Russian President Vladimir Putin believes Russia and the USA have the necessary prerequisites for a fruitful partnership. He announced this at the presentation ceremony of ambassadorial credentials (including the US Ambassador) in the Kremlin Wednesday. According to the Russian President's estimates, "the recent tragic events that happened to the American people have deepened our countries' understanding and trust." "We have openly supported certain policies in the US anti-terrorist struggle - informational, humanitarian - and we are ready to cooperate further," Putin said.
