Moscow : Claims of Russia playing a crucial role in bringing Donald Trump to power in the United States are 'blabber' and 'fantasies', said Moscow soon after a US official released a statement.

"I am amazed that... the Russians come, send someone every year to basically refute the facts," US Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said.

Speaking on it, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Munich attendees that till the time facts are not associated everything is a blabber.

A day before Russia's response, the US had claimed that the 13 Russians were involved in running a secret campaign to sway the 2016 vote.

Mueller alleges that by mid-2016, the campaign -- under the direction of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin -- became focused on boosting Trump and demeaning his rivals including Democrat Hillary Clinton.

He also claimed that hundreds of people were pushed in for the campaign working in different shifts with millions of dollars involved. Three companies were also indicted.
