British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson told his Russian counterpart Friday there was "abundant evidence" of Moscow meddling in foreign elections, but said any Russian efforts to interfere in last year's Brexit referendum had fallen flat.On the first visit to Russia by a British foreign minister in five years, Johnson said he wanted to actively normalize U.K.-Russia relations, which were going through "a very difficult patch". Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov challenged that narrative, however, saying Johnson himself had recently said he had no proof that Moscow had meddled in last year's British referendum on leaving the European Union.Russian media has portrayed Johnson as anti-Russian.
