Official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova accused the head of the CIA of lying. According to her, in Moscow they consider it a lie the words of Michael Pompeo that Russia has interfered in the electoral processes of the USA for many years.

” Our ‘partners’ are fully lying – how many decades ago, I wonder, did Russia “start” this dirty business? ” – she wrote on Facebook.

Zakharova reminded that earlier US intelligence agencies and officials had never stated anything like this and never raised such questions.

“There was not a single plot, a film, a speech, until the US electoral system issued the result in the form of President Trump. Then everything began – unsubstantiated accusations, the search for an external enemy, lamentation about the Kremlin’s hand,” added the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

In an interview with CBS News, CIA head Michael Pompeo said he was concerned about the attempts of several countries, including Russia, to intervene in the course of American elections. “We have many enemies who want to weaken Western democracy,” he said.
