The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, has rebuffed the statements of CIA head Mike Pompeo about Russia’s interference in the elections in the United States in 2008 and 2012, because it would mean that Barack Obama owes his victories to Russia.

“I leave this without comment, since it crosses the bounds of the reasonable,” Sergei Lavrov said at a briefing in Moscow.

Mike Pompeo believes that due to the activities of RT TV channel and Sputnik agency, the Russian Federation’s spending on non-military influence in the world has decreased.

In turn, the editor-in-chief of RT TV channel, Margarita Simonyan, on her Facebook page noted praise from the head of the CIA for the fact that the TV channel saves money for the Russian state (on the military expenditures.)

The head of the CIA praised us  for the fact we save money for the Russian state.  I’m serious!

US special services accuse Russia of interfering in the elections in 2016. Investigations on this subject are conducted by the FBI and the intelligence committees of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Russia categorically denies these accusations.
