• Russian MPs have questioned their chance to get on American elections

  • If Washington was sent to the deputies of the state Duma invitation, they will participate in the US elections as observers. On Tuesday, November 1, said the Chairman of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky, reports "Interfax".

    "I'm not sure that such an invitation would be, given the demonization of the image of Russia in the informational and political space of the USA", — said Slutsky, noting that his personal expectations are "very low-key".

    The head of the Committee also said that on October 11 the Russian parliamentarians sent a letter to Congress and the U.S. Senate with the slogan "to get together and discuss topical dossiers of both international and bilateral agenda," reports RIA Novosti.

    "However, unfortunately, our request still remains unanswered," — said Slutsky.

    Earlier, the speaker of the lower house of Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin said, the deputies will participate only in the target travel abroad. "Travel to see other countries or to talk, were rejected," said Volodin.

    In September, the U.S. government refused Russian diplomats have the right to observe the presidential election, threatening them with criminal prosecution if it appears at the polling stations. The CEC said, that Russia will focus on remote monitoring of voting in the United States.

    The United States presidential election will be held on 8 November. The main contenders for this position are Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald trump.

    Some members of the state Duma and the Federation Council are included in the sanctions lists of the USA and European countries. To visit a separate international events, they may be given the right to enter, but with certain restrictions.
