The elections in Russia are constantly intervened, including by the US, said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“The President has repeatedly cited specific examples, and the American embassy is engaged in this,” the minister told reporters. He specified that American diplomats participate in “rallies of opposition parties, including non-system ones”.

“In any case, not some of our foreign partners will decide, but the Russian people will,” Lavrov added.

The Federation Council today appointed the presidential elections on March 18, 2018. The election campaign starts on December 18.
