Bogota: ‘There will be consequences if Russia interferes in the US elections.’, warned the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. The clear warning by Secretary of State Tillerson to Russia, during his Latin America tour, has been upheld by the media. ‘CIA’ Director Mike Pompeo had said that Russia is preparing to interfere with the United States elections.
This year, 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 33 Senate seats are going to be contested in elections. ‘Russia will not refrain from interfering in these elections. Russia has already started its move in that direction.’, said ‘CIA’ Director Mike Pompeo. Even before this gathered dust, the US Secretary of State warned Russia about the interference. This is a remarkable position that the US Secretary of State, on a tour to Latin America, has taken against Russia.
‘We are completely aware of what you are doing. It has become necessary to tell this to Russia. Therefore, stop all your movements or there will be consequences and they will backfire on you.’ Tillerson criticised Russia in these clear words. At the same time, if Russia decides to interfere in the United States elections, it will be difficult to stop them before hand, accepted the US Secretary of State.
The issue of the Russian interference in the US elections has become a very important issue in the US internal politics. It is alleged that Russia had interfered in the 2016 presidential elections, for Hillary Clinton’s defeat and Donald Trump’s victory. The allegation is being investigated and President Trump is allegedly interfering with the investigation.
The United States president has dismissed all these accusations. President Trump has criticised the anti-US stance recently taken by Russia. Russian activities have become dangerous, just like China, President Trump had said. Trump has also backed out of the treaty signed by the previous administration with Russia, with his decision of increasing the nuclear capability of the US.
In view of the anti-Russian policies adopted by Trump, the sheen of the accusations made in the US is being lost. This issue has become again a point of discussion as, the US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and the CIA Director, Mike Pompeo have taken a clear stand about the Russian interference in the US elections.
