    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US reports of alleged Russian hackers behind a planted pro-Iranian story on Qatar's news agency website is an attempt to exacerbate tensions between the United States and Russia, the first deputy chairman of the Russian upper house International Affairs Committee told Sputnik.
