The Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on Friday released an official answer to the Obama administration’s latest sanctions.
The spokeswoman says Russia blamed the U.S. President for damaging US-Russia relations and reprimanded the outgoing president for the continued mis-truths regarding so called Russian hackers affecting the U.S. November election.
The outgoing US administration has not given up on its hope of dealing one last blow to relations with Russia, which it has already destroyed. Using obviously inspired leaks in the US media, it is trying to threaten us again with expansion of anti-Russian sanctions, “diplomatic” measures and even subversion of our computer systems. Moreover, this final New Year’s “greeting” from Barack Obama’s team, which is already preparing to leave the White House, is being cynically presented as a response to some cyber-attacks from Moscow.
Frankly speaking, we are tired of lies about Russian hackers that continue to be spread in the United States from the very top. The Obama administration launched this misinformation half a year ago in a bid to play up to the required nominee at the November presidential election and, having failed to achieve the desired effect, has been trying to justify its failure by taking it out with a vengeance on Russian-US relations.
The real story about the White House led provocation is bound to to come out sooner or later. Truthfully, it is probably already occurring….Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp has said that the local Georgia authorities traced the origin of a cyber attack on his voter registration database subsequent to the election. That cyber attack was then traced to an IP address at the Department of Homeland Security. That was then followed by a quick attempt to cover up the story with the anti-Russian accusations that of course doesn’t contain a bit single of evidence.
