Piskarev's statement was published on the State Duma website.

"Attempts to influence political competition in Russia from the United States are intensifying as the parliamentary elections in our country approach," Piskarev said.

According to Piskarev, in particular, the statements of the former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul about the need for more active support of the "ideological allies" of the United States in the post-Soviet space and in Russia is "another evidence of interference in our internal affairs."

“We cannot but be alarmed by the frequent appeals of American politicians of various levels to increase aid to certain political forces in Russia.

And first of all, because we are talking about supporting those forces that are engaged in destructive activities, ”said the chairman of the commission.

Piskarev noted that “in fact, behind the benevolent words about“ supporting democracy in Russia ”there are completely different goals.

They were unambiguously identified by McFaul in a recent article, calling for "containing and confronting Russia."

Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that Moscow plans to send materials prepared by the State Duma to international organizations, with examples of outside interference in Russia's internal affairs.
