Zakharov commented on the situation around the elections of the head of Interpol
MOSCOW, 22 Nov — RIA Novosti. Moscow regrets that a filing with the US around the election of the head of Interpol was waged a dirty campaign, said the official representative of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova.
The representative of South Korea Kim Chung Yang on Wednesday elected as the new President of Interpol. Besides him, the post claimed the General-the major of Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia Alexander Prokopchuk, Vice President of Interpol for Europe. Voting took place at the 87th session of the General Assembly of the organization in Dubai.
The pre-election period was accompanied by an unprecedented campaign of disinformation, pressure, slander. She, unfortunately, was deployed by the USA against the candidate from Russia.
“Anti-Russian frenzy even Washington moved away from their principled approaches to disclose preferences on elections in an international organization and involved the foreign Ministry, openly embarked on the path of non-elected Russian representative,” she added, noting that there has been a flagrant interference in the internal Affairs of international organizations.
Moscow believes such actions are unacceptable, they are detrimental to the reputation and authority of Interpol, she added.
