The American public organization “Congress of Russian Americans” sent a letter to Donald Trump, in which they expressed disappointment with the state of relations with Russia and concern about the discrimination of Russians in the United States.
“Five million Russian Americans living in this country are forced to bear the brunt of the consequences of these reckless words and actions. Russian Americans have faced serious discrimination,” reads the letter sent on behalf of the head of the organization, Natalia Sabelnik.
According to her, “falling into the abyss of Russophobia” does not meet the interests of the United States. Moreover, Trump does not fulfill his pre-election promise to improve Russian-American relations. The organization noted that about 90 percent of voters hoped that it would restore relations with Moscow and abolish anti-Russian sanctions .
The message also condemns the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the United States under the pretext of Russia’s involvement in the Skripal case. The organization is assured that it is too early to draw conclusions.
“We ask you to stop the development of a new cold war that is increasingly getting ut of control, we need to stop sanctions against Russia and start a dialogue,” the letter said.
