Allegations on Moscow's possible role in U.S. protests are 'erroneous insinuations' - Kremlin

MOSCOW. June 1 (Interfax) - The remarks by Susan Rice, former national security advisor to United States President Barack Obama, suggesting that Moscow might be behind the ongoing violent protests in the U.S. are erroneous insinuations, which cannot reflect Washington's official views, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

"First, we certainly are following what's happening in the U.S. very closely, but everything that's happening there is the internal affair of that country. We've never meddled in American affairs, and we aren't going to meddle now, either," Peskov told journalists on Monday, when asked to comment on Rice's remarks.

"Any insinuations, like the ones you've just mentioned, are of course absolutely wrong and erroneous. And as far as we understand, such insinuations cannot reflect Washington's official standpoint in any way," he said.
