MOSCOW, Nov. 9 that America is “seriously divided” and voters do not trust the election results and consider them rigged, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
Mid-term congressional elections were held in the United States on Tuesday.

The archaic US electoral system, she added, does not guarantee the legitimacy of the electoral process, and voters do not trust the election results and consider them rigged, especially given the experience of the 2020 US presidential election , which were associated with numerous “scandalous stories”.
“The current fight for control over the legislature is another manifestation of a deep civil conflict and a violation of all democratic procedures on the eve of the fight for the White House in 2024,” the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized .
