Russian Security Council Deputy Secretary Alexander Venediktov said in an interview with the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper on Sunday that to this day, no convincing evidence has been presented to the global community to prove that Moscow allegedly tried to influence the elections in the United States or in Europe.

On Friday, the European Union published a report about the parliamentary elections last month, saying it had proof that Russian sources had used online disinformation techniques, including the creation of fake social media accounts, to try to sway voters toward right-wing parties. The EU report called on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to do more to protect elections from foreign meddling.
