There's something funny whenever one country accuses a second country of meddling in a third country's affairs. I mean, what business does Russia have to complain about this?

The only ones with standing to raise the outside interference charge is the interfered-with country. When a different country makes that complaint, it just comes across as "that country is our turf!" (Which, given Russia's "near abroad" doctrine, is probably exactly what the Russians think.)
