Previously, the U.S. filed charges in the framework of the «Russian case» against 12 citizens of Russia, allegedly working for GRU. In the American Ministry of justice stated that the accused was involved in hacking attacks.

The foreign Ministry stressed that these accusations are intended to vitiate the atmosphere before the summit Russia and the United States in Helsinki.

The Ministry also called statements about the involvement of the Russians to hacker attacks spreading.

«Now, influential political forces of the United States, who opposes the normalization of relations between our countries and for two years hunted outright slander, in a hurry to make the most of the next dummy, about which quickly forget,» said the Agency.

Russian diplomats noted that such statements undermine the credibility of American democracy.
«It is regrettable that Washington has become the norm to replicate false information, and criminal cases are got for obvious political reasons,» reads the statement.

The Ministry stressed that the initiators of the «embarrassing Comedy» sooner or later have to answer for the damage they cause to American democracy.

In addition, diplomats stated again the absence of evidence for the «interference» of Russia in elections in the United States.

«Russian business»

The American special services have accused Russia of «meddling» in the elections in 2016. For the last time readings were given many close to the Trump people.

Committees on intelligence in both houses of Congress conduct their investigation. A separate case involved an independent special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

And in the White house and the Kremlin suspicions repeatedly denied. Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov called the charges «absolutely unfounded.» Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has repeatedly pointed out that no evidence of «interference,» no.
