Provide Proof of US Election Hack or Shut up - Russia's Putin Replies Obama
The Kremlin on Friday slammed Washington for pointing the finger at President Vladimir Putin over cyber attacks against the US, after Barack Obama pledged to retaliate against Russian hacking.
“At this point they need to either stop talking about this or finally present some sort of proof. Otherwise this looks extremely scurrilous,” Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists during a visit to Japan.
President Barack Obama had on Thursday vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the U.S. presidential election, pointing to the probable that President Vladimir Putin personally authorised it.
