"We categorically deny any baseless accusations voiced against the Russian side. From our point of view, such actions of the current administration in Washington indicate unpredictable and aggressive foreign policy," he added.

"In particular, [they intend] to irrevocably spoil the already disastrous U.S.-Russian relations as well as to strike at the foreign policy plans of the incoming administration of the U.S. president-elect," Peskov said.
