(To correct news item issued Feb 17 at 5.04 p.m. - second paragraph, from "U.S. special prosecutor Robert Muller" to "U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller")

MOSCOW. Feb 17 (Interfax) - The accusations that Russia interfered in the United States' election lack proof and are politicized, this is yet another angry tale, the Russian president's special representative on cybersecurity Andrei Krutskikh said.

"This is yet another angry tale from bigmouths across the ocean, a tendentious, proofless and politicized one, nothing new, everything is again unsubstantiated," Krutskikh told Interfax, countering U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's accusations against 13 Russians.

"All the lists of personalities and organizations put out by Americans, all this is disingenuous and prompts a reaction of annoyance now. I think they are cheering themselves up," Krutskikh said.
