Russia still knows nothing about the true objectives of authors of the US intelligence report on hacker attacks, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, according to the Russia state news agency TASS.

“The absolutely unfounded accusations (in the published part of report) sound at a rather amateurishly emotional level that can be hardly applied to a highly professional work of high-class special services,” Peskov told reporters.

“We still don’t know what is in fact and what data those who make such unfounded accusations have,” he added.

The Kremlin spokesman added that Moscow “is observing a serious fatigue with these accusations.” “It is already reminiscent of a witch-hunt,” Peskov stressed.

“We understand that our US colleagues underwent such stages of a witch-hunt in different stages of their history,” he said. “We know that they are later replaced by more sober specialists with more sober approaches but still oriented at a dialogue rather than emotional convulsions,” Peskov added.

The part of the report that was published “was apparently very adapted.” “This publication did not add any substance for comments,” he said. Peskov stressed that Moscow rules out any involvement of Russian officials in the hacker attacks against the US.

It should be recalled that the US intelligence said in the declassified report published on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin sought to help Donald Trump win the presidential election.
