US President-elect Donald Trump acknowledged the Russian involvement in the cyber attacks on US infrastructure, but does not believe that these attacks have affected the election results. This was stated in a special written statement released by the Trump’s office.
“While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines. There were attempts to hack the Republican National Committee, but the RNC had strong hacking defenses and the hackers were unsuccessful." Trump claimed.
The statement was made public after the two-hour meeting between Trump and the representatives of three US intelligence agencies, during which the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency presented a report to the future president on influence of the Russian special services on the elections.
