The Kremlin says Washington is trying to demonize Russia with claims that it interfered with the 2016 US elections.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made the remarks in an interview with CNN, which was aired on Monday.
Peskov stressed that there had been no manner of collaboration or serious communication with US President Donald Trump’s campaign last year. “The fact that Russia is being demonized in that sense comes very strange to us. And we are really sorry about that,” he noted.
He went on to add that the US is humiliating itself by claiming that a foreign country was even capable of interfering with the elections.
The US is a “huge country, a country number one, the most powerful country in the world, with a very, very stable political tradition and you say that a country can easily intervene and easily influence your electoral process. This is simply impossible.”—Agencies
