In a statement showing Putin’s New Year’s messages to heads of state across the world, the Russian leader addressed Obama despite tenuous U.S.-Russian relations over Ukraine, saying the “Russian-American partnership could have been developing successfully.”

Putin said the coming year will mark 70 years since the end of World War II when countries united against Adolf Hitler.

“This historic date is a reminder of the responsibilities of Russia and the U.S. for supporting peace and international stability, their unique role in countering global challenges and threats,” the statement said.
