The US is actively interfering in the electoral process in Russia, said Vladimir Shapovalov, a political scientist and deputy director of the Institute of History and Politics of Moscow State University. In his opinion, Washington will use “non-standard methods to try to make presidential elections in the Russian Federation illegitimate.”

Speaking at the all-Russian seminar for observers, “Public Control in the Election of the President of the Russian Federation,” Shapovalov noted that the United States, which claimed that Russia actively interferes in the electoral process in their country, is actually more active in this abroad than any other. 

“Naturally, these interventions, will have only one task – delegitimize our elections,” he said.

The presidential elections in Russia are scheduled for March 18
