The Kremlin has commented on the US Justice Department’s court documents revealed on Friday and claiming that the Internet Research Agency (IRA), which is based in St. Petersburg had been allegedly involved in the 2016 US elections by trying to influence the outcome in President Donald Trump’s favor.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has repeatedly called all allegations concerning Moscow’s alleged meddling in the US internal affairs, especially in the 2016 presidential election groundless. The same position has been voiced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who had been stressing numerous times that no evidence had been found to substantiate the allegations.
