Shouldn't this be in the hoax bin?


Why? The OP correctly quotes a statement actually made by a high ranking Russian minister. It has not been denied, but the statement has been superseded by the will of Putin.



The title is misleading, they said they want to not going to, big difference.

If given the chance, I wouldn't trust Putin not to take the upper hand. But I believe Trump has the savvy to handle him, if in a less conventional way than most seem to desire. After all, Trump's business interests span the globe, and to do business abroad one must be able to effectively negotiate and enforce deals.

Putin:


We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole. As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration. The diplomats who are returning to Russia will spend the New Year’s holidays with their families and friends. We will not create any problems for US diplomats. We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of US diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin. It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family. My season’s greetings also to President-elect Donald Trump and the American people. I wish all of you happiness and prosperity.


I thought this was hilarious...another tweet from Putin:


Obama only has himself to blame for the world taking the piss out of him. He acted out of spite because Trump is going to wipe all his policy's away.

LOL, really? You're still on the Hitler/Stalin references?
Funny, but at the same time very very satisfying.

Night night. A good day all round, with Obama humiliated by Putin and Trump.
I'll sleep well - it's been that way since 9th November for some reason...
