CAPITALS — Russia does not seek confrontation with the United States and is not trying to influence the upcoming US presidential election, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday, dismissing allegations of Russian hack attacks on the United States, and referred to them as election campaign rhetoric by the White House.


Putin said he would work with any US leader willing to work with Russia, and that he hoped Moscow-Washington ties could improve after the US elections.
