MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. national security advisor John Bolton said Russian meddling in U.S. elections had backfired on Moscow, providing a lesson to the Kremlin: “Don’t mess with American elections.”

Speaking on a visit to Moscow, Bolton said there was no evidence the meddling — which Russia has denied — materially affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, but that it did create mistrust towards Russia.
