What the classified report says Russia wanted from Trump, is exactly what he's tried to deliver
"They wanted Trump to weaken the US position on the Ukraine, and that’s exactly the single issue on which Trump intervened to change the Republican platform. Trump staffers in the room, who are not delegates but are there to oversee the process, intervened. By working with pro-Trump delegates, they were able to get the issue tabled while they devised a method to roll back the language. Those staffers said they were talking “directly to Trump” in making those changes. The other request from Russia, that Trump weaken NATO’s role in the Baltics? When Donald J. Trump was asked on Wednesday whether, if elected president, he would defend the Baltic nations against a hypothetical Russian attack, his answer was, essentially: It depends."
