The Press Secretary of the Russian Embassy in the UK said that the cyber attacks, which were stated by the British Minister, are not a real problem, but only a reason for the forcing of anti-Russian sentiment.
Recall that on Thursday, British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt once again accused Russia of carrying out cyber attacks in order to “undermine the critical infrastructure” and “change the results of the elections” in many countries.
The diplomatic mission stressed that the Russian side “repeatedly at various levels offered British partners cooperation on the issue of cyber threats”. However, there has been no reaction from London.
The diplomats expressed the opinion that the new anti-Russian statement of the British Minister indicates that the Russian cyber attacks are not a problem for the British authorities, but an occasion to ” forcing anti-Russian sentiments on an international scale.”
The Russian Embassy stressed that such statements cause regret and serious concern. In addition, they added that, perhaps, London in this way hides preparations for a cyber attack on Russia.
However, no one in Europe believes Hunt. The President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman commented on the allegations of Russian influence on the elections.
“Fake news is that Russians, Chinese or someone else influence the elections. Such false news is aimed at creating panic, they are spread by those who are afraid of losing. They are looking for an excuse to lose the election in advance,” the Czech leader said.
It is worth noting that Russia has repeatedly denied all the allegations of attempts to influence democratic processes in different countries. Western countries have repeatedly attacked Moscow on this issue.
Earlier, for example, the State Secretary Mike Pompeo said that Russia interfered in the US elections in 2019, in 2008 and in 2004. However, he did not provide any evidence of his words.
Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov drew attention to the fact that from Pompeo’s statements it can be concluded that “Russia has been interfering in the US elections since he went to school.” At the same time, he noted with irony that maybe Moscow chose Pompeo.
