Meddling in United States poll 'fantasies': Russian Federation

Meddling in United States poll 'fantasies': Russian Federation Meddling in United States poll 'fantasies': Russian Federation

The statement came after charges were filed in the U.S. against former aides of the Trump campaign.

"It has even been mentioned somewhere that we are not only going to interfere in all the elections, but also will manipulate the environment to create floods", Lavrov said at a meeting with the Association of European Businesses on Tuesday. I suppose a Ukrainian trail should be investigated through Ukraine.

Kiev "has information" about the 2016 USA presidential election, Lavrov told a news briefing, RIA reported.

While Monday's charges were the first from an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, they are not directly tied to the Trump campaign itself.

Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates are charged with unregistered lobbying activities in the U.S. from 2008 and 2014 in the interests of the Ukrainian government, the Party of Regions and former President Viktor Yanukovich.

The charges are the first from an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and are not directly tied to the Trump himself.

A former business associate of Manafort's, Richard Gates, pleaded not guilty to the five charges he faces.

President Vladimir Putin on Monday said it was important to ask whether Russian samples were being used "purposefully and professionally", Vedomosti reported.

Mr Papadopoulos's plea agreement, signed earlier this month and unsealed Monday, described extensive efforts to try to broker connections with Russian officials and arrange a meeting between them and the Trump campaign.

Court documents show Papadopoulos claimed to have discussed the matter with top campaign officials, who encouraged him to pursue the contacts.

"Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar".

Trump said in July that Russian Federation "could well have interfered", but that "nobody knows for sure".

Lavrov, meanwhile, told reporters later on Tuesday that he "does not see anything illegal" in the interaction [with Papadopoulos].

Twitter said it had discovered that 2,752 accounts controlled by Russians and more than 36,000 Russian bots tweeted 1.4 million times during the election.

"From the outset we have been completely baffled over these baseless, unproven accusations against our country, about alleged attempts to interfere with U.S. elections", Mr Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

Peskov said that Moscow has consistently denied any involvement in attempts to interfere in the United States elections since allegations were first brought to the attention of Russian officials. "In general, there is no limit to fantasy".
