Russian FM says talk of Russian interference in U.S. elections is 'just blather'

Russia has repeatedly denied any effort to influence the US election.

Lavrov echoed that tone, telling participants at the annual Munich Security Conference that even US Vice President Michael Pence and others had raised questions about the US investigation. "So until we see the facts, everything else is just blather," he said.
