MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. Berlin does not accuse Russia of meddling in the electoral process in Germany and making fake news, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Thursday following talks with Russian top diplomat, Sergey Lavrov.
"The German media are answerable to themselves. The federal government has not put forward such accusations [concerning Russia’s influence on elections and fake news - TASS]," Gabriel said. "I am only talking on behalf of the federal government."
"I think that’s right," Lavrov added ironically making his counterpart laugh.
Elections to the German parliament, after which the government will be formed and the chancellor will be elected, will be held in late September.
