"We will not comment on information received from foreign intelligence agencies," Aurelija Katkuvienė, spokeswoman for the department, told BNS.

US media company BuzzFeed on Saturday cited unnamed US intelligence officers as saying that the US intelligence had earlier this year warned Lithuania, Great Britain, France, Germany and the Czech Republic about possible attempts of Russian hackers to affect election results.

Lithuania's for mer defense minister, conservative MP Rasa Juknevičienė, on Monday sent a public letter to security chief Darius Jauniškis with a request "to provide information about Lithuania being informed about Russian attempts to influence the results of the Lithuanian presidential elections."

US intelligence maintains that Russia attempted to help Donald Trump to win the US presidential elections. The president-elect has dismissed the statements as absurd, while Russia says it does not interfere with elections of foreign countries.
