Georgy Borisenko, the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's North America Department, says Robert Mueller’s report contains no evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. “There’s nothing there that would attract attention. It actually confirms the absence of any argument that Russia supposedly meddled in the American elections. There’s not a shred of evidence there. In fact, the report’s authors concede that they have no evidence,” Borisenko says.

The U.S. Justice Department published an edited version of the 400-page Mueller report on April 18, reacting several sections that describe concrete examples of Russian election interference. The special counsel nonetheless devoted dozens of pages to descriptions of “Russian active measures” on social media and “hacking and dumping operations” by Russian military intelligence.
