OXFORD - US Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Wednesday warned Russia against interfering with Western "democratic processes" and accused Moscow of aggressive behavior aimed at eroding the international order.

He did not elaborate on what Russia might be attempting to do or whether he was referring to hacking attacks on Democratic Party organizations in the run-up to the US election on Nov. 8, some of which officials and cyber security experts have blamed on hackers working for Russia's government.

The Kremlin has denied involvement in the hacks.
