“We resolutely reject the unfounded German allegations of Russian government structures’ involvement in the 2015 hacking attack on Bundestag,” she said, describing them as “nonsense.”

Last week, the German Foreign Ministry summoned the Russian ambassador to say it would be pursuing EU sanctions against Russian citizen Dmitriy Badin, an alleged officer with Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency.

The ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said the claim concerning a 2015 hacking attack on the German parliament was “absurd” and “unfounded.”

MOSCOW (AP) - The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday angrily rejected Germany’s allegations over Russian intelligence involvement in a cyberattack against the German parliament.

Zakharova challenged Berlin to provide proof of Russian involvement, saying that Moscow stands ready for a detailed discussion on the subject and will see the failure to show documentary evidence as a proof that the accusations were unfounded.
