MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last month, Richard Ferrand, the general secretary of En Marche! party headed by Macron, said there had been "thousands of attacks against IT systems, data bases, websites" allegedly originating in Russia. According to Ferrand, the attacks were due to Macron seeking "strong Europe in the face of Russia," while other presidential candidates have a more friendly stance toward Moscow.
"We strongly disagree with such accusations, they are absolutely groundless, official Moscow could and can in no way be involved in any cyberattacks," Peskov told reporters.
Peskov added that Russian "official representations in Moscow, including banking structures, official agencies, themselves are constantly victims of cyberattacks."
Moscow has been facing numerous accusations over alleged attempts to interfere in the Western elections providing no evidence. In December 2016, reports emerged that the German government feared potential influence on the 2017 parliamentary elections from Russia after the US Central Intelligence Agency had accused Moscow of carrying out cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) computer systems in an attempt to influence the November US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump.
