Businessman and reality TV show star Donald Trump claimed victory in the U.S. presidential election early on Nov. 9, the Republican Party candidate winning a surprise victory over his Democratic Party rival Hillary Clinton.
The win shocked and surprised the world, with many in Ukraine uncertain what the new U.S. administration’s policy towards Ukraine and Russia will be. Ukraine has counted the United States a key ally in its battle to fend off aggression from Russia, but Trump signaled during his campaign and in his victory speech that he wants to seek better relations with Russia.
