MOSCOW - Allegations that Russia tried to influence the US presidential election are reminiscent of a witch-hunt, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

Peskov, speaking on a conference call with reporters, also said that the published version of a US intelligence report detailing the alleged Russian operation targeting the election was unprofessional and contained nothing of substance.

"We are observing a serious fatigue with these accusations," said Peskov. "It truly is reminiscent of a witch-hunt."
