Russia’s Spymaster Denies Interfering in US Sovereign Affairs

The head of Russia’s top domestic security agency is rejecting allegations of interference in the US election.

Alexander Bortnikov, the director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the main KGB successor agency, said Thursday that he discussed claims of Russian meddling in the US Presidential vote with John Brennan when he led the CIA.

 Mr. Bortnikov reaffirmed that “Russia has never interfered and won’t interfere in sovereign nations’ affairs.”

The statement carried by Russian news agencies Thursday was the latest in a stream of denials issued by Russian officials in response to the meddling accusations.

Mr. Bortnikov said that despite Russia-US tensions he and his agency have maintained contacts with US counterparts on Syria and the fight against terrorism.

He said Russia and the US share information about potential terror threats.

Have a terrific weekend.
