LONDON, November 16. /TASS/. Russian embassy in London has sent queries to three universities for the original materials confirming the claims about Russia’s meddling in Brexit.

The embassy said it in a response for the Russian media, which asked it if it had been familiarized with what the UK media called a research by ‘British researchers’ on the ‘Russian influence through social networks’ on the results of last year’s referendum on pulling out of the EU.
"Unfortunately, the British media have a habit to quote unpublished documents and other confidential sources," the embassy said in a report.
"Since the latest articles on Russian-UK relations contain false claims against us, we sent requests to the relevant universities [Edinburgh and Swansea in the UK and Berkeley in the U.S.] to provide the original materials to us."
