WASHINGTON, August 13. /Basereporter.com/. Claims by some American politicians that the clashes on racial and social grounds in Charlottesville (Virginia) a year ago Russian trace is visible, represent unsubstantiated insinuations. This is stated in a statement on Sunday comments of the Russian Embassy in the United States.
“On the eve of the anniversary of the clashes on racial and social grounds in Charlottesville, some American politicians do not find anything the best how to seek out the “Russian trace”, – said in a statement. – The question arises: where at least one fact in support of these insinuations? They are not in principle, as no evidence of other, equally absurd accusations against Russia of meddling in American internal Affairs. We regularly draw the attention of the US administration, and the General public.”
“Given the irresponsible behavior of U.S. politicians, do not be surprised if in the organization of protests in Washington August 12, 2018 to mark the anniversary of Charlottesville, too, blamed Russia. After all, to handle the responsibility on others is much easier than addressing domestic problems, proving that after more than 150 years after the official abolition of slavery, racial tensions in the United States, seem to persist”, – consider in the Russian Embassy.
Last Saturday, us Republican Congressman from Virginia, Thomas Garrett said the FBI believes the protests in Charlottesville related to “Russian influence” on the internal Affairs of the United States.
