Russia has fired back at the U.S. Democratic Party and their allies in the liberal media by warning them not to blame “Russian election interference” when they suffer losses in the midterms.
In the run-up to Election Day, corporate media outlets have been laying the foundations of the narrative that Russia is helping Republicans beat Democrats.
On Sunday, the New York Times published the claims from a number of US experts that Russia had allegedly attempted to influence the results of Tuesday’s elections.
The so-called experts allege, without evidence, that Russia has “reactivated its trolls and bots” on social media.
The report notes that several social media accounts, which had been inactive for some time, had once again begun publishing reports about the weakness of the Democratic Party’s position.
“The posts mostly denigrated President Biden and other prominent Democrats, sometimes obscenely,” the Times complains.
“They also lamented the use of taxpayer dollars to support Ukraine in its war against invading Russian forces, depicting Ukraine’s president as a caricature straight out of Russian propaganda.”
According to the Times report, social media accounts that complain about Biden and the Democrats must be controlled by Russia.
Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin shot down the claims on his Telegram channel on Monday.
Volodin warns that the resurrected echo chamber about Russia’s alleged attempts to influence the results of the US midterms shows that Democrats want to absolve themselves of their coming defeat in the elections.
“The new accusations are an attempt by US Democrats to justify their defeat in the midterm elections, which will be held tomorrow,” Volodin said.
“We hold that meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign states is unacceptable, this is an integral part of our nation’s policy,” Volodin points out.
“We do not meddle and we will not allow it with regards to us.”
He noted that such claims from the U.S. liberal media only prove that “the US Democrats have begun to make excuses for their defeat.”
“Things are bad for [US President Joe] Biden,” Volodin said.
“The current leadership in Washington is holding on to power as much as it can.”
According to Volodin, the Democrats have “picked up where they left off,” once again accusing Russia of interfering in the elections.
“We saw the same thing back in 2016 when [Donald] Trump became president of the United States,” Volodin pointed out.
“[This is] nothing new.”
The Duma speaker added that Biden “and his party comrades are likely to lose majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.”
“The American people don’t vote for Democrats due to the problems they created themselves,” Volodin stressed.
“This is what first needs to be questioned.”
