Earlier, us intelligence agencies has officially accused Russia of attempts to influence U.S. elections, the Kremlin denied it. After the election, the White house acknowledged that on the day of the vote no increased hacking activity was not.

“This Commission will develop a bipartisan, independent, active consideration of Russia’s attempts to influence our choices and attack our democracy. It (the Commission) will also provide specific recommendations for the future,” said Cummings, quoted by Wired.

Earlier, a group of us senators urged President Barack Obama to declassify information, which, in the opinion of Washington, confirms the relationship between the actions of the Russian authorities and the election in the United States. The white house has made clear that the current administration, which resigned on 20 January 2017, is unlikely to have time to do it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking about the accusations of Russia in the hacker attacks, said in published data, there is nothing in the interests of Russia, and hysteria-mongering to distract from their content. Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov called allegations against Moscow is “absolutely unfounded”, he said, such statements “on anything not based, any facts not given”.
