Trump priorities align exactly with Putin's, Russian foreign minister says

The world community should lift sanctions against Russia after the withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine and the end of Russian occupation of Ukrainian territories, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.

After the change in power, Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula and is accused by Kiev and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation of fuelling an ongoing pro-Russian separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine in which close to 10,000 people have been killed.

Russian Federation stands for "pragmatism and national interests understood in a sensible way, and not messianic foreign policy and the attempt to spread values across the world", Lavrov said.

President Poroshenko reminded that he was among the first world leaders whom newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump called.

After Russia annexed Crimea, fighting broke out in eastern Ukraine the next month between pro-Russian rebels and Ukrainian government forces.

The joke appears to have originated before the election - in October, popular Twitter user Andy Levy innocently tweeted that President Obama should resign on his last day in office, so as to give his bff Biden the chance to be president for a day.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Ukraine.
