The Kremlin issued a fierce statement to the US weeks after Donald Trump was chosen to be the next president in a victory over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Tokyo: “Either stop talking about it or finally provide some evidence. Otherwise it looks indecent.”
Russia has repeatedly denied the hacking allegations. The Kremlin said on Friday that President Vladimir Putin had given Barack Obama “a really clear response” to US allegations that Moscow had interfered in the presidential election.
He was quoted as saying: “There was a tete-a-tete conversation and different themes were discussed.
“This theme was touched upon. A really clear reply was given by our side which perhaps did not fit with what Obama was trying to explain to us.”
Three US officials said on Thursday that Putin had supervised his intelligence agencies’ hacking of the US presidential election and turned it from a general attempt to discredit American democracy to an effort to help Donald Trump.
