Russian Indicted in Election Probe Says US Justice '1-sided'

Saturday, 17 February 2018 05:37 AM

MOSCOW (AP) — One of the 13 Russians indicted by the United States for interfering in the American presidential election says the U.S. justice system is unfair.

Mikhail Burchik was quoted as saying by the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that "I am very surprised that, in the opinion of the Washington court, several Russian people interfered in the elections in the United States. I do not know how the Americans came to this decision."

Burchik was identified in the indictment as executive director of an organization that allegedly sowed propaganda on social media to try to interfere with the 2016 election.

Burchik was quoted as saying Saturday that "they have one-sided justice, and it turns out that you can hang the blame on anyone."

U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller brought the federal indictment Friday.
