Russia said Thursday that an “ archaic” US electoral system that does not meet democratic standards and the politicisation of the media were to blame for American divisions and unrest in Washington .

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the storming of the US Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump was “ an internal US affair” but that blame rested with the US system .

“ The electoral system in the United States is archaic, it does not meed modern democratic standards , creating opportunities for numerous violations , and the American media have become an instrument of political struggle, ” Zakharova told Russian news agencies .

“ This is largely the reason for the split in society now observed in the United States .”
