“All this talk against Russia resembles not only the world of the absurd, but says again that it is likely a crisis of the political system of the United States,” said Volodin in an interview he gave in Bern-known TV presenter Darius Rossano for the Swiss TV channel RTS.

Yesterday the delegation of the lower house of Parliament headed by Volodin arrived in Switzerland on an official visit.

The presenter asked what he thinks Volodin charges 13 citizens of the Russian Federation “in a conspiracy against this country (USA)”

“The party lost the election (the Democrats), instead of admit defeat, takes, blames the Russian side”, — said the speaker.

Volodin admitted that this decision of the Americans there are two possible versions: “Either we don’t know what we know about the American side, or actually we are so powerful.”

As noted by the Chairman of the lower house of Parliament, one can hardly say that 13 people were able to influence elections in a country that for centuries had established its political system.

“It is protected, and laws and traditions — as in the system of representative democracy, Executive power,” — said Volodin.
