Britain needs strong evidence of "interference" of Russia, said UKIP

The UK after the "extraordinary statements" about the alleged "interference" of Russia in the parliamentary elections of 2019 need to submit the "extraordinary proof" of this, said to RIA Novosti, the leader of the British independence Party (UKIP) Freddy Vacha.

"It is a strong and extreme statement, and, like all extreme statements, it requires extraordinary evidence. I expect to see such evidence, while I did not see them. But I also recognize that due to issues related to national security and secrecy, their publication can be an impossible task," he said.

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. In addition, the cyber security Centre of the United Kingdom stated that allegedly associated with Russian hackers tried to steal in Britain, USA and Canada information about vaccine development from COVID-19.

Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov earlier told RIA Novosti that Russia rejects accusations of interference in the British elections of 2019 and considers them unfounded.
