Russia rejects attempts to delegitimize Nicaragua’s elections

Moscow, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Venezuelan counterpart, Felix Plasencia, on Monday denounced efforts by the United States to delegitimize the general elections in Nicaragua and to interfere in the internal affairs of that Central American nation.

At a joint press conference in this capital, the Russian foreign minister explained that Moscow sent observers, who noted that the elections were conducted in an orderly manner, in full compliance with Nicaraguan legislation.

“As I understand it, the White House’s leadership literally refused to recognize the elections last night, after they concluded, and called on other countries to do the same. We consider this unacceptable and strongly condemn such an attitude,” he said.

Lavrov recalled that Washington’s pressures and attacks on Nicaragua did not begin now, but back in 2018, when the country became target of undisguised interference in its internal affairs.

The head of Russian diplomacy pointed out that the attempts to overthrow the current government continue without even trying to conceal them.

The Venezuelan foreign minister stressed that the Bolivarian Government congratulated Nicaragua for a voting day that took place in peace and in full compliance with the electoral rules.

“The Nicaraguan people expressed themselves, decided to continue along the democratic path led by the government, which has created happiness, calm and peace for the country,” he said.
