MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Russia, in contrast to some other countries, respects the election campaign in the United States and refrains from any comments. Also, the Kremlin expects Washington’s reciprocity.
"What makes us so different is we respect election processes in any countries, including the United States. We by no means make any comments. We believe this is a sovereign process of a sovereign country," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in reply to a question from TASS. He recalled that Moscow reaffirmed its stance at different levels on many occasions.
"We expect that our own election processes will enjoy a similar attitude," Peskov added.
Asked by TASS about Tuesday’s primaries and meetings of party activists (caucuses) in twelve states and American Samoa, Peskov said, "Certainly, the Kremlin is closely monitoring international events in general and the US election campaign in particular."
