About This Meeting

Russian Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Sergey Kislyak, addressed the Detroit Economic Club Thursday, October 27, 2016, and offered his insights on how the relationship between the U.S. and Russia can move forward.

“The world is changing and the United States, you are exceptional,” said Kislyak. “You are entitled to lead the others and you have the power not only to elect the president, but the leader of the free world. Russia is also exceptional. The U.S. needs to understand that the world is changing and we are all better off working together instead of working against each other.”

When asked about the upcoming U.S. elections, Kislyak said: “We certainly take note of what Russia is being blamed for, which is not true.”
