Moscow has never supported any of the presidential candidates in France, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said today.

Axar.az reports that "The Russian side has never endorsed any candidate in any elections," the diplomat noted. "That is not our style at all."

The Foreign Ministry spokesperson pointed out that foreign colleagues "have been actively endorsing other countries’ candidates before the elections, thus selecting stronger and weaker candidates." "This does not conform to international law, including the UN Charter and the principles of democratic elections," Zakharova emphasized. "It even goes as far as directly pressuring voters. That’s nothing more than meddling in internal affairs."
