Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday that reports, suggesting that Russian state hackers targeted one of Democratic candidate Joe Bidenโ€™s main campaign advisory firms for presidential election, “look like nonsense”.

Microsoft Corp MSFT.O had warned the firm in question that it had been the target of suspected Russian state-backed hackers, according to three people briefed on the matter that told to Reuters earlier.

The sources said that the target of the hacking was the staff at Washington-based SKDKnickerbocker, a campaign strategy and communications firm working over the past two months with Biden and other prominent Democrats.
