Russia denies intervention into French presidential election

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Tuesday denied that Russia was behind media and internet attacks on the French presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron, adding that those accusation are absurd. Peskov told reporters that Russia does not have any intention of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries or in their electoral processes.

Macron's party chief, Richard Ferrand, said on Monday that Emmanuel Macron, who leads the opinion polls for the vote in May, had become a "fake news" target of Russian media and that his campaign was facing thousands of internet attacks.
