and a strong now on bbc news: hardtalk. welcome to hardtalk, with me, sarah montague. just a few months ago, russia was congratulating donald trump on becoming president, and expressing the hope that both countries would take their relationship to a whole new level. now, moscow's relations with the us and the west are so bad that the russian prime minister dmitri medvedev talks of them as "ruined". that was after america's response to the recent chemical attack in syria. but even before that, there was the stand—off in ukraine, and accusations of russian interference in american elections. now there are fears the russians could meddle in the french elections and other european votes this year. my guest is vladimir chizhov, russia's ambassador to the eu. will russia promise not to pervert democracy in europe? vladimir chizhov, welcome to hardtalk. thank you. france's foreign minister jean—marc ayrault has accused russia of meddling in french democratic life. is that true? of course it's not. well, i'm afraid that this wave of anti—russian rhetoric has become contagious, and has spread
