Lavrov bashes allegations of Russian 'meddling' as lame propaganda tool

Earlier Russian Foreign Minister said Russia had been subject to ungrounded accusations of interference into practically all political event across the globe

MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Allegations of Russia ‘interfering’ in elections in various countries is a lame propaganda tool, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant daily on Sunday.

"Anywhere – it’s Russia, Russia, Russia. That’s simple and easy lame propaganda. Voters, so to say, look at CNN’s very simpleminded slogans, such as ‘Russia has once again interfered in…," Lavrov noted.

"Repeated a thousand times, it will sear into (your) mind," he added.

After talks with his Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray Caso in November, Lavrov said Russia had been subject to groundless accusations of meddling in practically all political events across the globe. He stressed that Moscow had never interfered in any domestic affairs of other states.
