Russia warns US not to meddle in its elections

Source: USA Today

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warned Washington on Friday against trying to meddle in next month's Russian regional elections.

"I do not know what plans the U.S. embassy has, ​​but there were many episodes when American diplomats were seen in illegal activities," Lavrov said, the state-owned TASS news agency reported. "The relevant services should take appropriate measures." 

"I think it's in the American tradition, maybe they do not even consider it an intervention, because they can all do it and it's in their blood," Lavrov said.

This would be hilarious if it were not so sick. Talk about projecting one's own guilt.

1. Ummmm, how do you meddle or at least meddle successfully in an election that is fixed...

Putin is only leaving power feet first.

8. Lavrov is right about one thing

I believe the US has in fact meddled in quite a number of elections of other countries. And if we're not satisfied, we'll send the fucking military in to topple your ass. Or do it more subtly.

The US is not new to that game. The conspiracy theory in me thinks that this is why we are moving to all electronic voting machines, so THEY can put in office who THEY want.

9. True - although two wrongs don't make a right.

That said, as long as we insist on using read-and-write software-powered electronic voting/tabulation systems that were actually designed to be easily hacked (by Republicans, of course), we're practically handing our elections to the Russians, Israelis, and whoever else thinks they're entitled to pick our lawmakers for us.

10. And PS, it's interesting that they're using the word "meddle". Like it's akin to being nosy.

It's freaking cyber-war, no matter who's the one doing it. Let's call it what it is and stop soft-soaping something that has worldwide consequences.

13. The U.S. Gov't would never commit such a terrible deed.

But, a group of rogue American citizens, acting independently and without gov't approval, may attempt to hack Russian elections. Our gov't has no means to stop them. If Russia can't stop its criminals from hacking the U.S. elections, surely Russians can understand that U.S. will have equal difficulties in stopping criminals in U.S. who hack Russian elections.

Have a nice election!

That should be the official US response.
