Brexit – Leave.EU leader: “There was no Russian conspiracy”

He denied the “Russian conspiracy” accusation at the parliamentary hearing on Tuesday, the prime funding fund of the Brexit-party group, Leave.EU.

Leave.EU was a member of the Brexit Party campaign group, which was not recognized by the British electoral commission, and has been accused by leaders in the British press that they have been helping Russia out of their campaigns for the past two years, .
However, Arron Banks, a campaign manager and chief financial advisor to Leave.EU, said at a hearing on the media commissioner in London on Tuesday: It is true that Alecszandr Jakovenko met with a London ambassador in London three times during the referendum campaign but has “no reality” for press reports the group collided with Russia to influence the outcome of the referendum.
Asked whether Leave.EU had been disseminating false rumors in the 2016 EU referendum campaign – as it has been repeatedly reported in the British press – Banks said the group had “deliberately subversive campaign” and had no he is also a stranger to “make fools from leading journalists”.
According to Banks, however, the UK’s largest source of news is the UK parliament.
On the question of whether Russia has attempted to influence the outcome of the EU membership referendum, the main sponsor of Leave.EU said that “this is possible”, but if there was such an attempt, “it could be limited to a maximum of a few hackers at a low level.”
This issue has recently been raised in the hearing of the Prime Minister of Theresa May, British Prime Minister.
May, who appeared a few weeks ago before the liaison committee of chairmen of the House of Commons, asked whether the British security services are investigating online activities related to “Russian agencies”, which could be interfered in, for example, with last year’s British parliamentary elections or a referendum on British membership of the EU.
The British government’s only reply was that London knows that Russia has attempted to intervene in other countries, but the British government does not currently have any evidence of a “successful” Russian interference in British democratic institutions.
The deputy representative, the chairman of the London House of Commons for the Digital, Cultural, Media and Sports Department, Damian Collins, quoted data from various UK and US research institutes, said he could reach 125,000 for Twitter profiles with “targeted” activity in Russia the number of those active in the campaign period of the EU referendum, which ended in a narrow 51.9 percent victory over the exile, disappeared.
Theresa May reiterated that London had no evidence of successful Russian interference in the British democratic procedure at this time. He added that if such evidence were to be found, the British government would respond with “robust responses”.
