Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, on behalf of the Communist Party and state of Vietnam, on Monday extended his congratulations to Russian President Vladimir Putin over his re-election victory. 

The congratulatory message was made after President Putin won the Russian presidential election last weekend to continue his presidentship with an overwhelming vote of over 87 percent, the Party’s Central Commission for External Relations said on Monday. 

On Sunday night (Russia time), Putin expressed his thanks to all the people of the country who voted in the presidential election which he won. 

“We are all on the same team,” the Russian president emphasized in a speech at his election campaign headquarters after the victory, news website West Observer reported. 

The source of Russia’s strength is the entire Russian people whose common will is formed from the voice of each of them, the Russian leader affirmed. 

There have been conditions for Russia to become stronger, he added.

He also expressed his pleasure to be with like-minded people who support him toward common goals. 

According to results published on the electronic board of Russia’s Central Election Commission, after counting almost all the votes, independent presidential candidate Vladimir Putin won 87.18 percent of the ballots, winning the election.

He was followed by Nikolai Kharitonov from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Vladislav Davankov of the New People Party, and Leonid Slutsky from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, with 4.23, 4.02, and 3.16 percent of the votes, respectively.

Russian Ambassador to Vietnam Gennady Stepanovich Bezdetko on Sunday said he had received support from relevant Vietnamese agencies in preparing and conducting the Russian presidential election in Vietnam.

Bezdetko commented that the collaboration between the embassy and Vietnamese government agencies in Hanoi proved highly effective.

He extended his gratitude to them for their assistance and facilitation during the election process.

When asked by Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper about the outlook of Vietnam-Russia relations, the ambassador highlighted the enormous potential for cooperation between the two countries.

Bezdetko reviewed many prominent cooperation areas between Vietnam and Russia, such as oil and gas, high technology, transportation, and military technology. 

He also welcomed the recent resumption of direct flights between Vietnam and Russia, commenting that this will help promote official delegation exchanges, boost trade and business cooperation, and facilitate Russian travelers to the Southeast Asian country.

Vietnam and Russia established diplomatic ties in 1950 and elevated their relationship to a strategic partnership in 2001, and then a comprehensive strategic partnership in 2012.
