MOSCOW, March 11. /TASS/. Participants of the presidential election race in the United States should focus on real problems, whereas Russia has never presented any threat to the US, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Friday.
"As regards the election campaign being held in the United States now, we have noticed that the issue of Russia, Russian political establishment, separate persons is raised nearly every day," Zakharova said.
"I have an impression that they can’t even hold elections without us," she said.
"I am more than convinced that the American people has many real problems interesting them: issues of social support, medical insurance, participation of American troops in legitimate and, mainly, unfortunately, illegitimate operations abroad," Zakharova underscored. "That’s what they should focus on."
"Russia has never presented, does not present and will not present a threat to America as a state or to American people," she said.
"One would like to answer: try to do that on your own, without us, you can hold a presidential campaign without Russia," Zakharova said.
