Slutsky responded to the accusations the UK to Russia

London further undermined bilateral relations with Moscow, but also its own authority, said to RIA Novosti the head of the Duma international Affairs Committee Leonid Slutsky, commenting on the statement by the head of the British foreign office in relation to the "interference" of Russia in British elections.

The British foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in a written statement to Parliament says that Russia "almost certainly" tried to intervene in the British elections of 2019, on this fact opened a criminal investigation.

"British leadership comes back to the same anti-rake and thus not only further undermined bilateral relations with Moscow but also its own credibility," - said Slutsky.

He added that statements by the British foreign Secretary about the mythical intervention of Russia – "another Russophobic nonsense".
