MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The claims that Russia is responsible for cyberattacks on the United States are folly, many allegations on this topic are falsifications and unprofessional information, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"We have… repeatedly stated… that we categorically deny any accusations against us in this regard, we believe it is complete nonsense," Peskov told reporters.
"Many of the statements in this regard, we believe, are fake and unprofessional information," he said.
In October 2016, 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."
