RUSSIA’S FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SERVICE (SVR) ALLEGES US IS PLOTTING TO INTERFERE IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) claims that the US intelligence plans to interfere with its presidential election.

Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) alleges that the US is plotting to interfere in its upcoming presidential election scheduled this month. According to SVR, US nation-state actors plan to launch cyber attacks against Russian voting systems to disrupt operations and interfere with the vote-counting process, as reported by Reuters.

“According to information received by the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation, the administration of J. Biden is setting a task for American NGOs to achieve a decrease in turnout,” reads a statement issued by the SVR and reported by Reuters. “With the participation of leading American IT specialists, it is planned to carry out cyber attacks on the remote electronic voting system, which will make it impossible to count the votes of a significant proportion of Russian voters.”

Moscow warned that any foreign interference in the election would be viewed as an act of aggression against Russia. Western intelligence considers Putin as a war criminal and a dictator and believes he will win the election.

On the other side, the Russian government denied any interference with the upcoming U.S. Presidential election in November.

“We never interfered in elections in the United States,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a lecture to students on stereotypes about Russia, occasionally slipping into English.

“And this time, we do not intend to interfere… We do not dictate to anyone how to live – but we don’t want others to dictate to us,” Peskov said.
