Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday no proof has been revealed that ties Russia to any claims of interference in elections around the world.

"Without a single piece of proof, we are, as you know, being accused of meddling not only in the U.S. election, but also in those in European states," Lavrov said in remarks quoted by Interfax at a briefing at the Association of European Businesses, according to Reuters.

"Recently, there was an allegation that Moscow decided what minister to appoint in South Africa. In general, there is no limit to fantasy," Lavrov said, according to the report.

The U.S. has accused Russia of being responsible for hacking emails including communications from the Democratic National Committee in the 2016 presidential election, which Russia has denied.

Lavrov, in the briefing, said French President Emmanuel Macron accepted an invitation to visit Moscow in 2018, the RIA news agency reported, according to a separate report from Reuters.
