MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. All allegations that Russia is trying to influence the upcoming French elections are absurd, Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said at a meeting with a French parliamentary delegation.
She added that "horror stories have been spreading lately that Russia wants to influence the elections in Germany and France." "This is absurd," the Russian Senate speaker said adding that such rumors "just cause one to smile."
According to Matviyenko, Russia already had to face such accusations in connection with the US presidential election. "It is nice to know they think so highly of us," she joked. According to the senate speaker, such allegations "humiliate the American people" who elected their president themselves.
