Russia suggested to the United States that they exchange letters of non-interference in each other's affairs but the United States refused, as stated at the briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova. The event was broadcast on the Ministry's Facebook page.
"Against the backdrop of that colossal hysteria that we see around the mythical role of Russia in the US elections in July, Russia offered to exchange letters with corresponding obligations, for example, at the level of foreign ministers," Zakharova said.
According to her, this is not an innovation. Russia established similar practices in 1933.
"Washington's refusal to consider such a proposal now once again shows the absolute falseness of the campaign to accuse Russia of some interference in last year's elections in the United States," Zakharova said.
According to the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the United States actually acknowledged that there was no Russian threat to the American electoral system.
