During the plenary session of the state Duma the head of the Committee on information policy Leonid Levin presented the results of testing the Russian-language editions of the radio station “Voice of America” and “Radio Liberty” and their influence on the elections in Russia.

In turn, Zhirinovsky said that such media have “a lot of very hidden problems”, reports TASS.

“I do not propose to confine the present discussion, behind closed doors to spend more time and to invite to this discussion, FSB Director Bortnikov Alexander Vasilyevich, because they have more content, they know better”, – said the leader of the liberal democratic party.

Speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin has declared that the invitation will be sent Bortnikov. “It would be possible to do it in June or in July (for the hearing – “MK”) as prepared”, – he added.

Note that in the USA since last summer unwinds a story about a certain intervention of Russian hackers on the instructions of the Kremlin in American elections that led to the defeat of Hillary Clinton. In Moscow, the speculation has been repeatedly rejected.
