TOKYO (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Friday (Dc 16) that the United States should either prove accusations that Russia interfered in the US presidential election by hacking Democratic Party organisations or drop the issue.

"Either stop talking about it or finally provide some evidence. Otherwise it looks indecent," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Tokyo.

Russia has repeatedly denied the hacking allegations.
