Kremlin dismisses Washington allegation on 2016 election meddling


(MENAFN) Kremlin has denied in its first official statement since the charges last week the allegations Washington made against Moscow of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections.

Washington was accused by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov of possessing no evidence that could incriminate Moscow, pointing out last week's charges to have targeted individuals and not Russia itself.

During a press conference, the spokesman noted "they are talking about Russian citizens, but we have heard in announcements from Washington accusations about the involvement of the Russian state, the Kremlin and the Russian government."

He continued "there are no indications that the Russian state could have been involved in this and nor can there be any. Russia did not meddle, does not have the habit of meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, and is not doing so now."
