Putin spox Peskov told CNN Monday:
It’s high time for someone in Pindostan to think, ‘Are we that weak that a country can interfere in our domestic affairs and influence our electoral system?’ This is unimaginable, and someone has to say all this
is not true! We have to be sober! Let’s return to our senses! Russia does not have the slightest intention to interfere! The only thing I can tell you is that all this hysteria and public opinion, hysteria in official Faschingstein and hysteria in Pindo media, this is doing lots of harm to the future of our bilateral relations. We’re really sorry about the situation that we are facing now. It is emotional extremism, of trying to make
a toxic country out of Russia, to make a toxic ambassador out of Russia’s ambassador.
