MOSCOW, Nov 8 Russia has never interfered in electoral processes in the United States, however, Washington's interference in the affairs of sovereign states is a reality, said Leonid Slutsky, head of the international committee of the State Duma and leader of the Liberal Democratic Party.
Earlier, businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin ironically commented on the VKontakte social network on the page of his Concord company about journalists' question about Russia's “attempts to intervene” in the US congressional elections: “We have interfered, we are interfering and we will intervene”, “neatly, accurately , surgically”, and during “point operations we will remove both kidneys and liver at once”. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that “these comments do not tell us anything new or surprising.” According to her, the United States sees Russia's attempts to “undermine democracy and sow disunity” in American society.
“Russia has never interfered in the electoral processes in the United States. This is nonsense. But Washington's interference in the affairs of sovereign states, attempts to contain our country is a reality. Take care of the problems of your far from so stupid voters, they clearly require no less attention than the regime ( Vladimir) Zelensky,” Slutsky wrote on his Telegram channel.
He also noted that the midterm congressional elections have not yet begun, and the White House is already “significantly sighing in connection with the alleged” Russian interference “, while any sarcasm shown in Russia on this score provokes a violent reaction from the State Department, where they quite seriously declare some kind of “demonstration of impunity.”
“Demonstration of impunity is a very correct definition for all American foreign policy. In particular, for the imposition of illegal sanctions under false pretenses, when the US Democratic Party tried to justify its defeat in the 2016 presidential election with attacks by “Russian hackers,” the parliamentarian said.
