Lavrov: Russia does not interfere, but closely monitors preparations for US elections
Chapter Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov spoke about the position Russia regarding preparations for the November congressional elections USA. About her he informed in an interview with Newsweek.
The Minister stressed that Russia fundamentally does not intend to interfere in the internal affairs of foreign states, including the United States. “We do not interfere, but, of course, we are closely following the preparations for the November midterm congressional elections. This is not a whim, but the duty of diplomats, journalists, scientists,” he said.
Lavrov also noted that Russia does not exaggerate the significance of the results of the upcoming US elections in the context of improving Russian-American relations. According to him, this is due to “the persistent rejection in the Capitol of the very idea of an equal dialogue with Moscow”. “It’s too early to say anything about the 2024 US presidential campaign as it hasn’t really started yet,” the minister said.
Formerly Lavrov spoke out about the degree of US involvement in the conflict on Ukraine. According to him, the United States is on the verge of turning from outside observers into full-fledged participants in what is happening.
