The UK and not Russia interfered in the US presidential elections

Summary of Disinformation

It was confirmed in the US that the British Special Services and not Russia interfered in the US presidential elections. The Brits perceived the improvement of the US-Russia relations as a danger for their country, so they fabricated the Skripals’ case and the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about US elections and ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal's poisoning.

In fact, the US Justice Department has charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic officials in the 2016 US elections. Previously, 13 Russian citizens as well as the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management and Concord Catering had been charged with interfering with the US political system.
