MOSCOW, Nov. 6 – RIA News. The statement by the US secret services about the absence of hacking into the voting infrastructure on the eve of the elections demonstrates a “total fiasco” of provocateurs who initiated the plot with “Russia's interference in the elections,” said Konstantin Kosachev, head of the international committee of the Federation Council.
On the eve of the midterm elections in the United States, the heads of the FBI, the Ministry of Justice, national intelligence and the US Department of Homeland Security published a joint statement on Tuesday stating that the special services did not have data on attempts to hack the voting infrastructure.
“Actually, today's recognition is a total fiasco of American provocateurs from politicians who started this long-running fuss about“ Russia's interference in the elections ”two years ago to justify the failure of the“ system ”in the person of Hillary Clinton and discredit the“ non-systemist ”Trump,” wrote Kosachev on Facebook.
The senator believes that "the failure of America in the loss of conscience and loss of self-esteem," and not in the election results.
“We will live until Tuesday, perhaps it will be easier, in any case, in terms of provocations and fake campaigns to fool large sections of the public around the world,” the senator concluded.
Elections to the US Congress will be held on November 6. The House of Representatives (435 members) and about a third of the Senate (35 out of 100 members) will be completely re-elected. The United States during the election campaign is actually divided in half into Democrats and Republicans. In most states, several percentage points can be decisive for winning.
Russia has repeatedly repeatedly denied the allegations of attempts to influence the elections in the United States, and the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, called them "absolutely unfounded." Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking of the alleged Russian interference in elections in the United States and other countries, said that there was no evidence to support this.
Presidential adviser on national security, John Bolton, also said that he had received assurances from Russian President Vladimir Putin that Russia did not interfere in elections in the States. Putin also stated that this case is internal disputes in the United States, and expressed hope that the investigation of the “interference” in the elections and the alleged ties of the Russian Federation with Donald Trump, led by Special Prosecutor Robert Muller, and the development of relations between the countries would be stopped.
