MOSCOW, January 9. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova made an ironic comment on the recent US intelligence report about "Russian hackers" allegedly trying to influence the US presidential election.
"It seems to me that ‘Russian hackers’ hacked only two things in the US which are Obama’s brains and the very report on the ‘Russian hackers," she wrote on her Facebook.
Earlier the US intelligence published a declassified report on the alleged Russian hackers' activities aimed at meddling in the American elections.
The report claims that the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of Russia’s Armed Forces handed confidential information about the US Democratic Party over to Wikileaks, the DCLeaks.com and a hacker nicknamed Guccifer 2.0. As Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, such accusations against Russia are completely groundless since there is no evidence to back it up.
