    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday once again dismissed accusations that Russia had in any way been involved in cyberattacks on the United States.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — In October, Washington accused Moscow of having hacked email servers of US citizens and organizations following numerous media reports about the attacks of Russian hackers on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), among other organizations. Moscow denied the accusations, with Peskov saying that the US allegations were "nonsense."

    "It is necessary to either stop talking about it, or finally provide some evidence. Otherwise it looks quite indecent," Peskov told reporters while commenting on the regular US accusations of hacker attacks.

    US President Barack Obama said Tuesday that "Russia trying to influence our elections dates back to the Soviet Union."
