MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin's spokesman is expressing dismay at U.S. accusations of Russian meddling in America's presidential election.

Dmitry Peskov said Friday in remarks carried by Russian news agencies that the U.S. should "either stop talking about it or finally produce some evidence, otherwise it all begins to look unseemly."

Peskov made the statement in response to President Barack Obama's comment Thursday. Obama promised that the U.S. will retaliate against Russia "at a time and place of our own choosing." Obama said that he spoke directly to Putin about it.

Russia has fiercely rejected the accusations of hacking. Putin's foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said the two leaders discussed the issue at a G-20 summit in China in September and Putin "gave a very clear answer."
