Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky congratulated Joe Biden on his victory in the US presidential election. The message of the head of state was published on Twitter.

"Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris (member of the US Democratic Party, - ed.). Ukraine is optimistic about the future of strategic partnership with the US. Ukraine and the US have always cooperated in security, trade, investment, democracy, and the fight against corruption. Our friendship is becoming only stronger," the message says.

US presidential candidate from the Democratic Party Joe Biden was able to gain 270 votes in the electoral college, which are necessary to win the election. So far, this does not mean an official victory, since the electoral college will elect the US president only on December 14.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has no right to claim the victory in the US presidential election as the court proceedings are beginning, US incumbent President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!" he tweeted.

Trump hopes to regain his lead in a number of states following the results of court proceedings initiated by the Republicans.

"I had such a big lead in all of these states late into election night, only to see the leads miraculously disappear as the days went by. Perhaps these leads will return as our legal proceedings move forward!" he wrote on Twitter.
