The Hudson Institute has been critical of Russian Federation in the past, while the International Republican Institute promotes democracy around the world and counts six Republican senators as well as a leading candidate among its directors, Microsoft said. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov cited the lack of detail on the hack, and said it wasn't clear "who the hackers in question are" and how they could distort the United States electoral system.
The hacking attempts, which targeted two conservative think-tanks, have been described as attempts to "disrupt democracy" itself and to undermine any institution, regardless of political affiliation, that challenges the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Whom exactly they are talking about, what is the proof, and on what grounds are they reaching such conclusions?"

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov is denying the allegations and says that Microsoft's statement lacks detail and it wasn't clear "who the hackers in question are" and how they could distort the US electoral system.
