MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/ The West is trying to influence internal processes in Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
Answering a question on whether Peskov thinks that the West interferes into Russia’s affairs, the Kremlin spokesman said: "I would not generalize." "There are very many cases that serve as evidence of that," he added noting that every case should be considered separately.
Washington and London have repeatedly accused Russia of trying to interfere into political processes in US and UK. Peskov said that "this is an absolutely reciprocal process."
"Different political analysts, public organizations in Russia also often accuse the West of interfering into processes in Russia, of trying to influence electoral processes, of threatening our national security. And the West also fails at persuading us that it is not like that," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"The reason for this is catastrophic deficit of trust and reluctance to engage in constructive dialogue. We hope that political will to change this situation will emerge sooner or later," Peskov added.
He noted that Russia "is ready to continue explaining to everyone interested our actions, our concerns, our plans and proposals to avoid similar situations in the future." "We have a lot of patience," he concluded.
