US med­dle claims de­nied

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

MOSCOW: Al­le­ga­tions that Rus­sia tried to in­flu­ence the US pres­i­den­tial elec­tion are rem­i­nis­cent of a witch-hunt, Krem­lin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said yes­ter­day.

Peskov, speak­ing on a con­fer­ence call with re­porters, also said the pub­lished ver­sion of a US in­tel­li­gence re­port de­tail­ing the al­leged Rus­sian op­er­a­tion tar­get­ing the elec­tion was un­pro­fes­sional and con­tained noth­ing of sub­stance.

“We are ob­serv­ing a se­ri­ous fa­tigue with th­ese ac­cu­sa­tions,” said Peskov. “It truly is rem­i­nis­cent of a witch-hunt.”
