Accusations that Russian intelligence services were seeking to hack Pindostani voting equipment as part of a broader effort to interfere in the Pindostani presidential election are false and unfounded, the Kremlin said on Tuesday. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters:

This assertion has absolutely nothing to do with reality. We have heard no arguments proving the veracity of this information … Therefore we strongly deny the very possibility that this could have happened.

The Pindo DoJ on Monday charged a federal contractor with sending classified material to The Intercept. The Intercept’s reporting revealed new details behind the conclusion of Pindostani intelligence agencies that Russian intelligence services were seeking to infiltrate state voter registration systems, discredit Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump win the election.

Responding to yesterday’s leak of NSA documents by the Intercept, the Kremlin has held a conference call during which spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied the claim that the Russians had attempted to hack American voting equipment, saying it was “false and unfounded.” Peskov noted that there was nothing that proved any accuracy to the claims made in the NSA document, saying that because of that Russia is discounting the possibility that this could have even happened in the first place. The Intercept was given the “top secret” documents from a contractor, and those documents made the allegations, though like most official US documents on the “Russian hack” they continued no evidence that Russia was specifically involved in anything. Rather, the documents made some allegations of a spear-phishing effort carried out against companies involved in voter registration and voting software, and just tacked that on to the long list of things Russia is being accused of. In Pindostan these specific claims have largely fallen by the wayside, with much of the focus shifting to the arrest of the apparent leaker, one Reality Winner.
