Russia dismisses allegations of involvement in US Treasury email hacking

Russia has dismissed allegations that hackers working for the Kremlin have broken into computer systems at the US Treasury and Commerce Departments, saying Moscow had nothing to do with the suspected snooping. 

“Once again, I can reject these accusations and once again I want to remind you that it was President [Vladimir] Putin who proposed that the American side agree and conclude agreements (with Russia) on cyber security,”  Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, adding that Washington had not responded to the offer.

β€œAs for the rest, if there have been attacks for many months, and the Americans could not do anything about it, it is probably not worth immediately groundlessly blaming the Russians. We didn’t have anything to do with it.”
