“The Russian Embassy in the United States expresses its deep concern over the promotion of a new spiral of speculation about Russia's alleged“ interference ”in US elections ... Our position is simple and understandable. Russia does not "interfere" in the internal processes of other countries. We urge politicians to stop the allegations, ”the agency said in a statement on Facebook.
The Russian embassy said that accusations against Russia are being exploited by American politicians in order to achieve their goals.
Diplomats noted that anti-Russian rhetoric led to "an unprecedented degradation of bilateral relations."
Earlier, the White House’s deputy spokeswoman, Hogan Gidley, said information about Russia's “interference” in the US election was another example of a witch hunt.
