Russia has no plans to interfere in the US presidential elections, “there are already a lot of problems,” Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters commenting on the Republican nominee Donald Trump’s warning that the elections could be rigged.
“We have neither a right nor an intention to interfere in the US election process,” Peskov said. “There are a lot of problems even without our interference.”
Peskov refuted media allegations that Russian representatives are behind a misinformation campaign in the United States to back one of the candidates for U.S. president.
“No, it was not me,” he said commenting on allegations that his name is cited among such people.
“There is no one in Russia (to conduct an information campaign against the U.S. presidential candidates) because such allegations are absurd,” he stressed.
The presidential spokesman said combatting any sort of rigging in the election was a domestic problem of the US.
Trump earlier stoked another scandal in the US saying that he could lose to Clinton only if the elections were rigged. The billionaire Republican nominee did not provide any proof to support his argument. However, Trump said he found it “shocking” when states like Pennsylvania rule out having any voter identification regulations.
