MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not intervene in the internal affairs of the United States and it will not celebrate either candidate’s victory in the presidential election, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Friday in response to a statement by the likely presidential candidate from the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton. She claimed that if her likely contender from the Republicans, Donald Trump, emerged the winner, there would be a holiday in the Kremlin.
"What sort of occasion will there be to celebrate?" Peskov asked. "I just don’t understand the question, so I have nothing to say in reply."
He pointed out that Moscow did not intervene in the internal affairs of other states.
"Let me remind you President Vladimir Putin’s fundamental stance on this score. Russia has one favorable feature that distinguishes it from a number of countries: we never intervene in the internal affairs of other states," Peskov said. "Naturally, we believe that the best candidate for the post of the President of the United States will be the one the majority of the American people will vote for. Whatever peculiar features the US electoral system might have."
