“In regard to CNN’s sources, I don’t know who their sources are. We know that blaming everything on Russia has already turned into some sort of sport. But what’s most important is that they aren’t looking for any submarines in the Potomac River like has been seen in other countries,” Peskov said.

The Potomac River flows through the capital of the United States, Washington DC.
According to CNN, Russian hackers breached a White House computer system in November 2014, retrieving personal information such as US President Barack Obama’s schedule.
US authorities have not confirmed that Russia was behind the breach.
Washington repeatedly accused Moscow of cyberattacks but provided no evidence for these claims. In February, US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper named Russia, China, Iran and North Korea as the leading cyberthreats to the United States.
Cybercrimes cost the United States about $100 billion annually, more than any other country, according to a study by Intel Security and the Center for Strategic and International studies.
