Donald Trump has been declared the winner in the US presidential elections - signalling an unexpected turn around, and a huge blow to establishment politics. Russian leader says Moscow's ready to work with the new US president and will do its part to put the relations with Washington back on track. That's the complete opposite of what most polls were predicting - they foresaw a sweeping victory for Hillary Clinton. And that's raising questions as to why the predictions were so far off the mark. The hashtag Trumpxit has taken off on Twitter - drawing parallels between Trump's victory and another major anti-establishment vote in the UK, earlier in 2016.
