The U.S. accusing Russia of hacker attacks is a clear political move to whip up unprecedented anti-Russian hysteria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Oct. 8.
"The joint statement by the office of the director of national intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), published on October 7, contains a series of accusations unproved by facts, stating Russia is involved in the organization of the hacker attacks on U.S. political institutes and individuals," he said.
"Any evidence base for such serious accusations is absolutely missing."
"Either it is being withheld by the U.S. administration, or it is invented by those who now in Washington are executing a clear political order, thus whipping up unprecedented anti-Russian hysteria," he said.
