Moscow: US democracy isn't threatened by Russian hackers

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated on Sunday that democracy in the United States isn't threatened by Russian hackers.

Instead, Zakharova argued, Americans distrust the system of government, asserting that people in the US see the statements of "political elites and global tech companies" as lies and misinformation.

Lastly, Zakharova cited a poll by the Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts, saying that 48% of Americans and 33% of Democrats believe that the US federal government is "deliberately publishing disinformation."
