"The FBI is scrutinizing more than 60 money transfers sent by the Russian Foreign Ministry to its embassies across the globe, most of them bearing a note that said the money was to be used to finance election campaign of 2016.” A spokesperson for the Russian government said the money paid for overseas voting in its parliamentary election."
