Russia will try to influence the presidential elections in France and the parliamentary elections in Germany. This was stated by a member of the Committee on Intelligence in the US Senate, Democrat Mark Warner on the NBC television channel.
In the context of the fact that the Senate Intelligence Committee this week will hold the first public hearings on the topic of Russian activity and possible connection with Trump's election company, Warner, quoted a famous proverb saying that there is a lot of smoke in this case (which couldn't be without fire).
Answering the clarifying question, what kind of fire is behind this smoke, he replied: "Time will tell, but what we understand is that Russia has interfered and they are doing similar things right now in France and Germany."
The senator noted that, undoubtedly, Russia's influence on the presidential elections in the US was significant.
According to him, the proof of this is both hacker attacks, and the fact that Russia "with the help of thousands of paid trolls spreaded fake news on the Internet."
