Putin denies claims of Russia’s meddling efforts in US election at talks with Trump


Russian President Vladimir Putin has categorically rejected at his meeting with US counterpart Donald Trump even a hypothetical possibility of Russia’s interference in the US electoral process, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Saturday, APA reports quoting İTAR-TASS.


"Putin personally told him [Trump] that this information is groundless and cannot have any grounds and categorically rejected even a hypothetical possibility that Russia might have been involved anyhow in the electoral process in the United States," Peskov said.


During their talk, Trump himself asked Putin whether rumors about Russia’s meddling efforts had any grounds, he said.


Trump and his high-profile advisers have denied accusations of illegal contacts with Russian officials during last year’s presidential election. Moscow also has denied claims of its meddling in the US presidential election.
