Alexei Chepa, deputy chairman of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, called the report of the intelligence committee of the British parliament an attempt to shift the blame for the blunders of the British leadership onto Russia.
The British Parliament’s Intelligence Committee published on Tuesday a report on the alleged Russian interference in British politics, where it accused Russia of trying to undermine the world order through participation in international organizations.
“The attempts of the British authorities to blame Russia for all their mistakes cause irony not only among British journalists, but also among many parliamentarians … All these statements are worthless. But this is the official position of Great Britain, which confuses us,” Chepa RIA Novosti.
According to him, such reports do not contribute to the improvement of relations between the two countries.
Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of attempts to influence democratic processes in different countries, and the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov called them “absolutely unfounded.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking about the alleged Russian interference in elections in different countries, said that there were no facts to confirm this.
