According to the minister in a written statement, based on a comprehensive analysis, the government concluded that "almost certainly Russian actors sought to intervene in the 2019 general elections" through "online distribution of illegally obtained and leaked government documents."

According to Raab, we are talking about the leak of documents on free trade negotiations between the UK and the United States in anticipation of the elections in 2019.

At the same time, the statement said that although "there is no evidence of the existence of an extensive campaign of Russia against the elections," however, "any attempt to intervene in democratic processes is completely unacceptable."

In December 2019, the Minister of Digital Technology, Culture, Media and Sports of Great Britain, Nicky Morgan, called on the authorities to worry about “Russian interference” in the general elections in the country on December 12.
