Lavrov labels election interference charges as baseless

US-POLITICS-TRUMP

Peskov also brushed aside any suggestion that someone with links to the Russian Foreign Ministry might have tried to set up a meeting with the Trump campaign through a third ex-aide, George Papadopoulos, who it was announced on Monday pleaded guilty in early October to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Kiev "has information" about the 2016 USA presidential election", Lavrov told a news briefing.

Russian Federation on Tuesday pointed to the charges against Paul Manafort and an aide to President Trump's 2016 campaign as proof there is no evidence that Moscow interfered in the election, according to a report.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denied claims that his country tried to influence election in the U.S. and Europe.

"Without a single piece of proof, we are as you know being accused of meddling not only in the USA election, but also in those in European states", Lavrov said, per Reuters.

The US intelligence community is in agreement that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election.

Peskov laughed off the purported role of Papadopoulos, who told investigators he had tried to set up a meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russian leadership.

The findings surfaced amid an investigation by US Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

The President has repeatedly questioned whether Russian Federation played any role in hacking the Democratic National Committee and other schemes to influence the election process.

The response to the first three singles has been fairly, ahem, mixed so far. The full album will arrive on November 10.

"Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar", Trump said.

The figure offers the most detailed public accounting to date of the scale of a Russian disruption campaign via social media sites and online platforms.

Facebook said last month it had uncovered thousands of divisive advertisements purchased by Russian-linked fake accounts.

"Without any evidence, we have been blamed for interfering not only in elections in the U.S., but in European states too".

Putin has repeatedly denied interfering in the American presidential election or other votes in foreign countries, but admitted that "patriotic" Russian hackers may have been involved.

Peskov said that Moscow has consistently denied any involvement in attempts to interfere in the United States elections since allegations were first brought to the attention of Russian officials. "In general, there is no limit to fantasy".

Mahlobo's appointment has heightened speculation that Zuma is trying to push through the nuclear deal with Russian Federation before his term ends in 2019, a deal that is set to benefit him and his family.

Putin's team apparently told Zuma to speed up and conclude the multi-billion-dollar deal and just hours after that gathering the latest Cabinet reshuffle took place.
