The Kremlin considers the letter of U.S. senators interference in the election of the head of Interpol

The letter of some US senators urging not to allow the election of Russian candidate Alexander Prokopchuk to the post of head of Interpol is a good example of pressure and interference in the elections. This was stated by the press Secretary of the President RF Dmitry Peskov.

According to him, these actions of US parliamentarians can certainly be regarded as pressure. “Probably, it is a kind of interference in the electoral process, in the elections in the international organization. How else would you rate it? This is a visual manifestation (intervention),” – said the representative of the Kremlin.

“Nevertheless, there will be elections, let’s wait for the results,” Peskov added.

As previously reported, on Monday a group of US senators from both parties on Monday published the text of an open letter to US President Donald Trump, in which they ask him to influence the members of the General Assembly of Interpol to prevent the Russian Alexander Prokopchuk become the new head of the organization. .
