The Kremlin will patiently wait for a statement from the United States so that it can understand what the future holds for U.S-Russia relations, Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

“We will be patient and we will be waiting for a statement about concrete (U.S.) actions that will allow us to understand … perspectives for bilateral relations,” Peskov told a conference call with reporters.
