The Russian Foreign Ministry has replied to the US capital rebellion, which took place when lawmakers in the North American country certified the results of the presidential election in 2020.
The spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, was quoted as saying that the U.S. electoral system is outdated and does not meet modern democratic expectations.
The state-run RIA Novosti news agency confirmed that Zakharova said the Donald Trump supporters’ uprising at the US Capitol was “an internal US affair” but that responsibility rested with the US system.
In the United States, the electoral system is outdated, does not comply with modern democratic norms, provides grounds for frequent abuses, and has become an instrument of political struggle in the American media.
This is probably a big reason for the division in society in the United States that is now observed.
