Russia’s embassy in Washington said on Facebook that it hoped the United States would refrain from making what it called further unfounded allegations and focus instead on working with Russia to fight cybercrime.
“We categorically deny the involvement of any Russian state structures in attacks on ‘government and private facilities in the United States and abroad,’” the embassy said.
It said it was time for Washington to get its own house in order, alleging that “constant attacks” on critical infrastructure in Russia emanated from the United States.
