Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“The statements of the British Foreign Secretary about some mythical Russian interference in the parliamentary elections are just another Russophobic nonsense. Accusations of interference are, pardon the pun, already a diagnosis for Western politicians called “insanity.” And, pay attention, again in the speech of Raab appears “almost certainly”. That is, again, on the basis of “highley like” in the absence, according to the head of the foreign office, of specific evidence, a criminal case is initiated? Where is the presumption of innocence, where is the evidence?
The British leadership is again stepping on the same anti-Russian rake and, thus, not only further undermines bilateral relations with Moscow, but also its own authority.”
