“We are watching the presidential race in your country with intense interest. We are fond of your programme and like your marked individuality,” Rostenko says in a letter to Trump. “After your victory at elections, you are going to establish friendly relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin and it is a wonderful decision.”
The schedule of the visit drafted by the Yalta authorities includes Trump’s trip to Roosevelt Street, the only street in Russia named after an American president.
“We are looking forward to seeing you and wish you success at the election,” the letter says.
US business tycoon Donald Trump has an estimated net worth of USD 1.4 billion, according to Forbes magazine. This year he announced his candidacy for president of the United States and entered the presidential race.
The Crimean peninsula was captured from Ukraine and annexed by Russia last year. Most countries in the world, including the United States, do not recognize the annexation and regard Crimea as a territory of Ukraine under occupation.
