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.

I guess they should just allow Biden to face the problems facing him in the country to avoid distractions, by the way Americans should reunite to stay in the pact of greatness which they have known them for.

The fact that the US has failed to substantiate any of her claims against Russia make it increasingly difficult to believe, without proof, such allegations. Exercising caution, we can’t place anything to be above and beyond reach that Moscow could be try to do. The burden of proof lies with Washington.
