Russia’s Foreign Ministry has reacted to the insurgence at the US capitol which occurred while lawmakers in the US were certifying results from the 2020 presidential election.
The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova states that the electoral system in the United States is archaic and does not meet modern democratic standards and has created opportunity for numerous violence.
According to the state-run RIA Novosti news agency, Zakharova alleged that the insurrection at the US Capitol by president Trump’s supporters was “an internal US affair” but that blame rested with the US system.
“The electoral system in the United States is archaic, it does not meed modern democratic standards, creating opportunities for numerous violations, and the American media have become an instrument of political struggle.
“This is largely the reason for the split in society now observed in the United States.”
