Kremlin denies charges against Trump officials prove election meddling

When Trump won the presidential election in November he offered Schiller the position of director of Oval Office Operations

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called allegations of the country trying to influence elections in the US and elsewhere "fantasies".

"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.

Peskov added that accusations of Russian meddling in the election remain "unfounded", and "we are observing (the situation) with interest". Washington's latest sanctions against Moscow were created to weaken Russia's position - in the arms export and energy sectors - to benefit the U.S., according to Lavrov.

Months-long efforts of USA investigators to find alleged Russian collusion with President Donald Trump's campaign have led to the discovery of a "Ukrainian trail", Russia's FM Sergey Lavrov said, suggesting Washington should now investigate Kiev's role.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied any attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election that brought Trump to power.

The cases pertain to possible financial crimes involving Ukrainian state funding, the head of the special investigations department, Serhiy Horbatyuk, said in comments carried by state news agency Ukrinform.

The second indictment concerned former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who admitted to making a false statement to FBI investigators who asked about his contacts with foreigners claiming to have high-level Russian connections.

Both Bush presidents bash 'blowhard' Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency
George HW Bush said he voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while his son told Mr Updegrove he did not vote for anyone. He had just defeated Jeb Bush - the former president's son. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good".

Moscow is again dismissing claims of Russian interference in last year's United States presidential election as baseless.

Papadopoulos also told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that he tried to arrange meetings between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.

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

Facebook said last month it had uncovered thousands of divisive advertisements purchased by Russian-linked fake accounts.

Putin has repeatedly denied interfering in the American presidential election or other votes in foreign countries, but admitted that "patriotic" Russian hackers may have been involved. "Recently, Moscow has been accused of making decisions on which minister to appoint in the Republic of South Africa", Russia's senior diplomat said at the press-conference, adding: "Fantasy has no limits".

Mahlobo's appointment heightened speculation that Zuma wants to push through a nuclear deal with Russian Federation before his term ends in 2019.
