President Donald Trump (C) and Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (L) meet at the Oval Office of White House in Washington, D.C., on May 10, 2017.

Eight months of investigations into allegations that Russian-sponsored hackers attempted to influence last year’s U.S. presidential election campaign have yielded no facts, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.

Addressing a think-tank audience in Berlin, Lavrov said the U.S. had turned up only unproven allegations. If Moscow really did have the power to throw elections, its neighbors would have much closer relations with Russia and there would be no Ukraine crisis, he added.

Washington has been convulsed in recent days by allegations that President Donald Trump’s son met a Russian-linked agent during the election campaign who was promising to provide compromising information about his opponent Hillary Clinton.
