MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The Kremlin rejected on Wednesday the accusations against Moscow of its alleged involvement in hacker attacks as unfounded and absurd.
"As for any unfounded accusations of involvement of the official Moscow in these crimes [hacker attacks], we believe that these accusations are absurd," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"Russia has always been, is and will remain committed to the principles of the need to fight against cyber terrorism and hackers," the Kremlin spokesman stressed.
He noted that Russia seeks international cooperation in this area, including with the United States.
Earlier reports said hacking attacks have been carried out against the US political institutions and individuals. Russia has denied its alleged involvement. However, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday Obama would consider a "proportional" response.
