British Minister of State for Security Brandon Lewis on Sunday December 8th denied claims that the Conservative Party’s campaign had been funded with Russian money, as the party is competing against socialist-led Labour on December 12th, Reuters reported.

British political parties do not have the right to accept donations from foreigners.

Brandon told BBC that the funding for the party, headed by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, were provided by British citizens, as it comes from people “declared through the Electoral Commission.”
