The UK government noted the lack of evidence of a wide of RF interference in the British elections, but noted that any attempt to interfere was unacceptable.
"Although evidence of a large-scale campaign against Russian elections there, any attempt to interfere in our democratic process is totally unacceptable. Being criminally investigated, so to say anything else at this stage is inappropriate for us," reads the response of the government published on Tuesday a report on Russia’s parliamentary intelligence Committee.
"Our absolute priority is and always will be to protect the UK from foreign interference, whether from Russia or any other state", – stated in the report.
Last week, the British foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in a written statement to Parliament said that Russia "almost certainly" tried to intervene in the British elections of 2019, and that on this fact criminal investigation.
The text of the 47-page report was submitted to the office of the Prime Minister 17 October last year. The government then stalled the publication, citing the fact that the disclosure document must be preceded by "processes". The new composition of the Committee for intelligence and security was formed this week, paving the way for the publication of the report.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is still occupying the post of the head of the British foreign Ministry, said in an interview with RIA Novosti that the UK has no data on the interference of Russia in a referendum on Brexit and other political processes.
Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of trying to influence the democratic processes in different countries, as the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called them "completely unfounded". The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking about alleged Russian intervention in elections in different countries, said that there are no facts confirming it, no.
