In February, the us media reported that the United States intelligence has warned members of the U.S. house of representatives about the "Russian interference" in the presidential campaign 2020 to help the current head of state Donald Trump.

"As for politics, any discussion of the events can be interpreted as interference. No, of course, the Russian intervention in elections in foreign countries, there can not be. Another issue is that by studying the history of electoral campaigns in Europe, we see that especially in the postwar years – in 1947-48, the years and beyond – there was some participation of foreign States in the elections in Italy, France, Czechoslovakia, the Polish people's Republic and so on. But those times have sunk into Oblivion", - concluded the Ambassador-at-large.
