“Ten million dollars for information about meddling in the US presidential election is a generous reward for lying. With these promises, the US State Department provokes a wave of people who want to get the prize in any way. And since Russia is listed as the first and eternal accused in the United States in interfering in internal affairs, one should expect another portion of false information and unsubstantiated accusations about the “hand of Moscow” allegedly controlling electoral processes in America. This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak.
He emphasized: “For American Russophobes, the entire evidence base is based on the principle“ with a high degree of probability ”, however, like their British partners, which discredits politicians of such a high rank.
As the November presidential elections approached, the actions of US political circles, as expected, began to become increasingly anti-Russian in nature. Candidates for the post of the head of the White House compete in front of voters – who is more ready to confront the external enemy in the person of Russia. The internal struggle is forcing Washington to impose sanctions that impede the development of cooperation between Russia and Europe in the energy sector, the United States is trying to dictate to our country with whom to maintain relations and who to provide assistance, blackmail with another package of restrictive measures under far-fetched pretexts, and incite an arms race.
All these destructive steps by the United States nullify the prospect for our countries to return to constructive dialogue, which is necessary in the interests of peace and collective security. “
