Moscow Calls US Accusations of Russian DNC Hack "Unprecedented Anti-Russian Hysteria"

The Foreign Ministry in Moscow says U.S. accusations that Russia was responsible for cyber attacks against Democratic Party organizations lack any proof and are an attempt by Washington to fan "unprecedented anti-Russian hysteria". Reuters quotes Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov statements on Saturday from the ministry's website: "This whipping up of emotions regarding 'Russian hackers' is used in the U.S. election campaign, and the current U.S. administration, taking part in this fight, is not averse to using dirty tricks. ... There is no proof whatsoever for such grave accusations… (They are) ...fabricated by those who are now serving an obvious political order in Washington, continuing to whip up unprecedented anti-Russian hysteria."

On Friday, US intelligence officially accused Russia of hacking DNC and interfering with election stating: "We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities."
