Lavrov hints at Russia "getting ready" for U.S. presidential election
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said jokingly, commenting on the next year's presidential election in the United States, that Russia will "resolve the problem."
"We'll resolve the problem, don't worry," Lavrov said at the Paris Peace Forum, when asked how Russia is "getting ready" for the 2020 election, Sputnik reported.
In April, U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller presented a report on a two-year investigation into the Trump campaign. In his report, he said he had found no evidence of collusion between the presidential candidate or members of his campaign with Russia – allegations that Democrats repeated following Trump’s inauguration. Moscow has consistently denied meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections.
