MOSCOW (REUTERS) - Russia has seen no evidence or facts to suggest that its government interfered in the US election last year, the country's foreign minister said on Wednesday (April 12).

"We have not seen any facts, not even hints of facts. No one has shown us evidence, even though we have requested that this evidence has to be produced to support the allegations and accusations we hear," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow alongside US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

US intelligence agencies have accused Moscow of using computer hacking to intervene in the election to help then candidate Donald Trump win.

The FBI is investigating whether any Trump campaign figures colluded with Moscow, which the White House denies.
