The Kremlin on Monday denied the involvement of the Russian government by interfering with the US presidential election of 2016.
Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters the allegations were unfounded.
The Russian commentary was issued after a special American investigator accused 13 Russian citizens and three Russian legal entities of "illegal information war" to disrupt elections to benefit President Donald Trump.
The indictment by former FBI Director Robert Mueller for Russian interference raised the argument that the Internet Research Agency based in St. Petersburg Petersburg, which has links to the Kremlin, 12 of its employees and financial supporters, masterminded the effort.
The 37-page document charged that the Russians were trying to coordinate their efforts with members of the Trump campaign, but the document did not accuse anyone from the Trump campaign colludes with Russia.
Trump has long insisted that his campaign does not collude with Russia, even as the American intelligence community and now Mueller have concluded that Russia is campaigning widely to intervene in the election to help win the Trump.
The indictment is the first time Mueller's office has charged allegations against Russian citizens and Russian legal entities for intervening in the 2016 presidential election. [gp]
