Moscow has not contacted representatives of US presidential candidate Joe Biden and has no plans to do so yet. This was stated by the Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Ryabkov.
It is noted that Russia refuses to get in touch with the leading candidate in the race, as it has a negative experience in 2016. Then Moscow began to establish a dialogue with President Donald Trump before his inauguration, after which the US intelligence services accused him of collusion with Russia. In April 2019, US Special Attorney Robert Mueller published a report in which the illegal ties between the Russian side and Trump could not be confirmed.
On November 7, Joe Biden, who received, according to media reports, 290 electoral votes against 270 necessary for victory, declared himself the elected president of the United States. In turn, the current head of state, Donald Trump, hopes to regain his leading position in a number of states through the courts. He believes that Biden hastened to call himself the new leader of the country, “since the elections are not over yet.”
