According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, the United States actually acknowledged that there was no threat from the Russian side to the American electoral system.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia has proposed to the United States to exchange letters on non-interference in each other’s affairs, but Washington refused, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday.

According to Maria Zakharova, Russia did not invent anything new, "this is not some kind of revolutionary proposal or some kind of innovation." She noted that such a principle had already been fixed during the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries on November 16, 1933, at the insistent request of the Americans themselves.

"Washington's refusal to consider such an offer now once again shows the absolute fakeness of the campaign for accusing Russia of some interference in last year's elections in the United States," she added.
