In a shocking revelation, Russia has confessed that it has been meddling with the elections of other countries for years, but only to help them elect the best leaders possible. The Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia was acting as a “benevolent guardian” of democracy and that its interference was “a service to humanity”.
Peskov said that Russia had a “unique perspective” on world affairs and that it knew better than the voters of other nations who would be the most suitable candidates for their countries. He cited examples of Russia’s successful interventions, such as helping Donald Trump win the US presidency in 2016, supporting Brexit in the UK referendum, and backing Marine Le Pen in the French presidential election.
“We are not trying to impose our will on anyone, we are just trying to guide them to the right choice,” Peskov said. “We have a lot of experience and wisdom in dealing with complex issues, and we want to share it with our friends and partners.”
Peskov denied that Russia had any ulterior motives or hidden agendas in hacking elections, and said that it was not seeking any benefits or favors from the leaders it helped elect. He also dismissed the accusations of violating the sovereignty and integrity of other countries, and said that Russia was respecting their democratic processes.
“We are not interfering, we are enhancing,” Peskov said. “We are not hacking, we are helping.”
