Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov joked that Moscow is offended to be in second place after Beijing on the list of countries allegedly interfering in Washington's affairs. He is quoted by RIA Novosti.

“Already commentators are asking politicians questions” who interferes more: Russia, China or Iran? ” In this “competition” through the American representatives, according to their estimates, the People's Republic of China is still winning, ”the diplomat said. He jokingly added that Russia is used to always being the first.

On September 10, the United States imposed sanctions on three Russians and a Ukrainian due to interference in American elections and cyber attacks. The black list includes Russian citizens Anton Andreev, Daria Aslanova and Artem Lifshits, who are allegedly connected with the Internet Research Agency, which manipulated the elections. The Americans attribute it to businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin.

In April 2019, US Special Attorney Robert Mueller published a report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, which was won by Donald Trump. It says that Moscow did interfere in the American electoral process, but suspicions about the connection between the Russian side and Trump could not be confirmed. Later, a federal court in Washington ruled that the connection of the “troll factory” with the Kremlin was also not proven.
