MOSCOW, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Embassy in Washington said Tuesday that 50 percent of the cyberattacks against the Russian Central Election Commission were conducted from the territory of the United States.

"The purpose of these hacks is to discredit our electoral system," the embassy said in a Facebook post, adding that Russia is still waiting for an explanation from the United States.

The embassy in the post also commented on a recent press statement issued by the U.S. Department of State with regard to the parliamentary elections in Russia.

The voting took place in full compliance with domestic legislation and the norms of international law, the embassy said, calling any U.S. accusation that claims otherwise groundless. Enditem
