MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The speaker of the Federation Council upper house of the Russian parliament, Valentina Matviyenko, expressed hope on Wednesday that ties with Washington will improve after the presidential election in the US.
"This anti-Russian topic, accusations of cyber-attacks, misinformation about the situation in Syria - all these are factors of political fight in the run up to the presidential election," the speaker said.
"Unfortunately, this agenda is shaped by the campaign," Matviyenko told reporters. "An enemy is needed, accusations targeting this or that country, and Russia was chosen," she went on.
According to the speaker," this agenda will be exhausted after the campaign ends, and we will see common sense and continuation of a dialog, cooperation in fight against new challenges, and first of all terrorism, cybercrimes as well as other challenges".
The presidential election in the US is due on November 8.
