Moscow: The head of Russian elections said on Monday that voting by mail in the US presidential election paved the way for large-scale voter fraud, echoing Donald Trump’s campaign remarks.
Ella Pamfilova, the head of the Russian Election Commission, said that she has carefully studied the postal voting in the United States and found that the procedure is vulnerable to fraud.
“For me, the conclusion is clear: this kind of outdated phenomenon in the American era provides ample space for possible falsification,” Panfilova told the national tourism organization TASS.
She cited the possibility of repeated voting, unexplainable “unnecessary” ballot losses, votes classified as deceased, and the possibility of “lack of systematic control over the entire voting process.”
Trump is really helpless Biden, the president-elect of the United States, and tried to question the sow on the election results-without providing evidence.
Trump in particular focused his criticism on the mailed ballot, which has surged this year and is heavily tilted towards the democratic parties.
Russia was accused of interfering in the 2016 US election to help get Trump elected, in the hope he would take a softer line with Moscow.
Biden is expected to take a tougher stand and during the campaign slammed Trump for having “embraced so many autocrats around the world, starting with (Russian President) Vladimir Putin”.
Putin is one of the few leaders who have yet to congratulate Biden.
