US hysteria over Russia poll ploy: Putin

Putin said he found it hard to believe that anyone seriously thought Moscow was capable of influencing the November 8 election. The US has formally accused Russia of a campaign of cyber attacks against Democratic Party organisations, while Hillary Clinton has accused Republican rival Donald Trump of being a Putin "puppet".
