The Foreign Ministry said there was evidence of Russia’s non-interference in the U.S. election. Andrei Krutsky, the Russian President’s special representative for international cooperation in the field of information security, and Andrei Krutsky, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s special envoy, told Kommersant that the U.S. is preventing the release of this Evidence.
In an interview published on Monday, February 24, Krutsky said that Russia strictly adheres to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of the United States, including in the electoral processes.
According to him, Russia expressed readiness to make public the contents of technical correspondence as proof of its innocence, so that the document would be studied by experts, journalists, as well as the public of Russia and the United States. However, Washington refused to take this step, explaining the “sensitivity” of the materials. “We have repeatedly invited the Americans to come to the negotiating table and discuss each particular charge. To get to the truth, who did what and what did not. At the level of professionals, not through the media, as they do,” the special representative of the president added.
Earlier, The Washington Post reported that U.S. officials accused Russia of helping Sanders. It was noted that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign. Donald Trump called it the start of a disinformation campaign. Sanders urged Russian leader Vladimir Putin not to participate in the U.S. election.
In April last year, the full text of special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election was published. According to his conclusions, Moscow did influence them – in particular, the Russian GRU (GU) handed over to WikiLeaks the materials of the Democratic Party of the United States. The subject of the investigation was also a possible link between Trump and the Russian government. The report concluded that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia.
