    Moscow thinks the United States could share information on the investigation into hacker attacks but has received no proposals on cooperation so far, the Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US politicians and media reports have accused Moscow of being behind the attempts to crack election systems hacking attacks on voters databases in Illinois and Arizona in late June and a breach of the Democratic Party’s emails in July.

    "In this regard we are interested in one thing: if the investigation is going on, as we are told, if the US security services have launched a probe, we would welcome this information being shared with us… But there is silence on other side," Zakharova told Russia's Komsomolskaya Pravda daily.

    The Kremlin has called the hacking claims absurd and stressed that Russia has no desire to interfere in or influence the US election.
