Russian Foreign Ministry views US statements on Navalny as election meddling

Russian Foreign Ministry
In a recent Twitter post, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova described US Department of State’s comments on the rejection of Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny's presidential bid as "meddling in the Russian elections."

"This statement by the US Department of State, which I’m sure will not be the only one, is a direct interference into the electoral process and the state’s domestic affairs," she said.

A US Department of State spokesperson earlier told TASS that the agency was concerned by Russia’s Central Electoral Commission (CEC)’s decision to bar blogger Alexei Navalny from running for president in 2018 due to his felony conviction.
