    He “expressed fears” that Russian president would undermine confidence in “democracy”.

    In the US and France, candidates Clinton and Emmanuel Macron also used “Russian meddling” to smear their domestic political opponents, but offered no evidence of such meddling.

    Johnson nevertheless openly accused Vladimir Putin of “distorting the democratic proces” by hacking into Emmanuel Macron’s emails, days before Macron was elected as the President of France.

    In an interview with The Telegraph newspaper, published on Saturday, Johnson said President Putin would like to see Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, win the election scheduled to take place on the 8th of June.

    The Tory lead over the Labour opposition in the run-up to the election has halved to nine points, down from 18 points one week ago, the Sunday Times newspaper reported. It is far less than the 150-seat majority thought possible a month ago when Prime Minister May announced the snap election.

    On Friday, the NHS, the British healthcare system was affected by a massive ransomware attack that has since affected computers in hundreds of banks, institutions and government bodies in at least 99 countries worldwide.

    The attackers also targeted Russia, with computers of the Russian Interior Ministry being hacked too.

    The hack of Macron’s «En Marche!» campaign movement by unknown parties before his victory, yielded some interesting material, however. One set of files dealt with the virtual theft of France’s top information technology giant by individuals connected to the US Central Intelligence Agency.

    As an inspector of the French Economy Ministry, it is astounding that Macron would not have been aware of the violation of French law that occurred with the American takeover of Gemplus.

    The largest French union, «Confédération générale du travail» (CGT), said the takeover of Gemplus had stripped France of its smart card technology leadership. The company had employed at least 7000 French workers before its takeover by the Americans.
