MOSCOW, 20 Nov — RIA Novosti. Us senators urging to oppose the candidacy of Russians applying for the post of head of Interpol, grossly interfere in the election process, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

A group of four U.S. senators called on the administration of Donald trump and the General Assembly of Interpol to act against the candidacy of major General of the interior Ministry of Russia Alexander Prokopchuk, which is one of the contenders for the head of Interpol.
