Russian President Vladimir Putin has reportedly been warned that in the event of a United States strike on Kim Jong-un's nuclear facilities, contamination could swiftly reach Russia.
However, as state-backed media outlets Russia Today and Sputnik were accused of carrying news articles favourable to Trump, a spokesperson for Sputnik said in an email that the assertions by intelligence officials were "absolute pack of lies".
Namely, that Russian Federation should "instead intensify its messaging about voter fraud to undermine the USA electoral system's legitimacy and damage Clinton's reputation in an effort to undermine her presidency". It said Russian Federation should halt its pro-Trump propaganda and focus on efforts to undermine Clinton's potential presidency and the legitimacy of the US electoral system by fomenting suspicions of voter fraud.
The report was based documents supplied by three current and four former U.S. officials.
While Russia condemns the "brinkmanship" of the ballistic missile tests by the isolated Communist state in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions, this doesn't justify breaking worldwide law, Lavrov said. The RISS plan was been in the hands of US officials for some time, and was part of the evaluation by the intelligence community on Russia's involvement and intent in the election.
The Kremlin has denied any involvement in the US election, with Putin calling such allegations "lies" used to promote "domestic American political agendas". Both the Kremlin and the RISS say the report is false.

The deal to evacuate the four towns is the latest in a string of such agreements through Syria's six-year civil war. The evacuation was continued soon after the attack, for which no one has yet claimed responsibility.
"I don't know anything about this, I can only say that seven anonymous sources are not worth one real one", he said.
Those disinformation messages were perfectly consistent with Donald Trump's contention that the election would be rigged against him, that the media were unfair to him and that Hillary Clinton was a crook who should be locked up.
The officials noted that the two documents were central to the Obama administration's determination that Russian Federation interfered in the election and targeted the Democratic Party.
"I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the U.S. will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign", said Lavrov.
Four of the officials said the approach outlined in the June strategy paper was a broadening of an effort the Putin administration launched in March 2016.
At that time, Trump's campaign rhetoric was peppered with calls for a new USA foreign policy approach that would see Washington walking back in its role as world policeman. A spokesperson for Sputnik dismissed the assertions by the USA officials that it participated in a Kremlin campaign as an "absolute pack of lies".
General Election confirmed as MPs back Theresa May
Only 56% of the country back the Prime Minister's call to the polls on June 8, according to research from Consumer Intelligence. Traders also think that a convincing election victory for May will give her greater flexibility in in talks with the EU.
Russia's President, Vladimir Putin, has shown not the slightest inclination to bestir himself from the Kremlin, even with the promise of some Florida sun.
RISS said the report's effort to prove Russian Federation tampered with the election was far-fetched.
The institute was, until recently, run by Leonid Reshetnikov - seen here, left, with Iranian envoy Ali-Akbar Velayati in 2016. But in October, Putin and the Russian intelligence services became convinced that their efforts had come up short, and that Clinton would win the election regardless. The docs don't, however, mention the release of hacked Democratic Party emails, an operation that officials told Reuters was coordinated by a separate part of the Kremlin.
According to Dmitry Kiselyov, the Kremlin's top TV mouthpiece, the riskiest is Donald Trump, the man Russian officials and propagandists hailed just a few weeks ago as just the kind of leader the world needed. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Monday urged the U.S.to avoid any unilateral use of force against North Korea, warning this would be "a very risky course of action" and comparing it to the USA missile strike earlier this month on Syria, which Moscow denounced as aggression.
When the documents were written, the report said, Leonid Reshetnikov served as the think tank's director and previously spent 33 years in Russia's foreign intelligence service. After Reshetnikov retired from the institute in January, Putin named Fradkov as his replacement.
He was responding to a question from a veteran of the Soviet Union's campaign in Afghanistan who complained that a well-known Russian senator was telling everyone that Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, would soon be president.
