He stated this at a press conference in Moscow.
“I propose to hold an urgent meeting of the State
Duma Council on August 19 to consider the issue of foreign interference in our
election campaign. This applies not only to Moscow but also to cities with a population
over a million, and it has already had documented evidence,” said Gennady
Gennady Andreyevich .
He also noted that this issue should be discussed at a Government meeting and at a meeting of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
According to Gennady Zyuganov, organizers of only one rally in Moscow received ”almost 1 billion rubles“ from the US. “During the consideration by the State Duma Council I would like not only to create a commission to investigate these things but also to investigate those who stand behind this operation […] who give money and why,” said the head of the Communist Party faction.
Earlier Head of the Just Russia faction Sergei
Sergey Mikhailovich proposed convening an extraordinary meeting of the Council of the State Duma to create a working group that would analyze the facts of foreign interference in Russia's internal affairs, in particular, in the elections scheduled for the fall. He emphasized that such interference in the internal affairs of our country is unacceptable.
The initiative of Sergei Mironov was also
supported by head of the LDPR faction Vladimir Zhirinovskii
Vladimir Volfovich . According to him, in August foreign diplomats should report to the State Duma about attempts to interfere in the elections in Russia.
