In a case of fair play, Russia has turned the tables and ha accused the United States of interfering in their presidential election.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told a leading news agency the US has sought to destabilize his country ahead of this month’s vote.
When I first saw this, my first thought was that they were trolling the Democrats. I mean, seriously, a group of Russians spent 100k and it negated the 1.2 billion that Hillary spent? Honestly.
If Hillary runs in 2020, she should hire these Russians, don’t you think?
But Vladimir Putin’s loyal sidekick did not offer any kind of evidence to back up his shocking accusation, Reuters reported.
Russians will cast their votes on March 18 and polls show President Putin is currently miles ahead of his political opponents.
Now Ryabkov has said Moscow has evidence the US has been trying to interfere in the ballot – which could see Putin return to power for a historic fourth term.
The Interfax news agency quoted Ryabkov as saying America was trying to sow chaos in Russia and that new US sanctions were aimed at destabilizing Russia.
It’s not the first time Russia has made the claims. Last December, politicians close to Putin pointed the finger at Washington saying they were trying to “interfere” in the country’s electoral process.
The Russians didn’t produce any proof of their accusations, but then again, neither has Mueller. Or Comey. Or Schiff.
The Russians also say that spying by the US has been increasing over the years and Putin has ordered officials to stop supplying foreign correspondents with any information about anything.
One CNN reporter was seen going through the garbage at one building.
I wonder why they would do that. You would think they wouldn’t bother since they make up their news anyway.
