Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev is very happy with Trump’s choice for Secretary of State.

“If we speak of businessmen, while Mr. Tillerson is one of those, they usually have very pragmatic thinking which seems very positive to me,” he said.

According to Medvedev, Trump has been doing business all his life and has never been a civil servant, so he is likely to include “people of the same kind” in his team. “These people don’t have any inherent prejudice against Russia, actually they are not hindered by stereotypes,” the Russian prime minister stressed. “They always start with a clean slate which is good.”


“It is true that we all know Mr. Tillerson as a prominent businessman who took part in some common projects, particularly in Sakhalin. In that sense, big Russian companies have good relations with him. This is why he was awarded with Russia’s Order of Friendship medal some time ago,” Medvedev concluded.
