The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation responded to the words of US CIA chief Mike Pompeo that Russia has been trying to intervene in the American elections for a few decades now. In particular, on her Facebook page, the official representative of the Russian diplomatic mission, Maria Zakharova, noted that the US special services are "complete liars."
According to the Russian diplomat, the falsity of such accusations is indicated by the fact that all these "decades" special services and US officials did not raise the corresponding issue.
"There was not a single plot, a film, a speech until the American electoral system said that Russia played its part during President Trump's elections. Then everything began - unsubstantiated accusations, searches for an external enemy, a lamentation about the" hand of the Kremlin "- in a word, the song of Polovtsian captives", Zakharova emphasized.
As previously reported, the CIA director Mike Pompeo said on CBS that Russia has been trying to undermine the elections in the United States for decades. In his opinion, the next step of the Russian Federation is interference in the elections to the US Congress, which will be held in 2018.
In addition, according to the US National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster, there are signs of "Russian intervention" in the upcoming presidential elections in Mexico.
