美国特别检察官周五起诉12名俄罗斯军队情报官员阴谋干预2016年的美国总统大选。

特别检察官穆勒和司法部副部长罗森斯坦在华盛顿宣布了大陪审团的指控。

其中11名被告被控实施电脑黑客行为,偷取材料并将其公开,试图影响大选。

罗森斯坦说,第12名被告被控“共谋侵入大选相关组织的电脑系统,包括州选举委员会,州务卿以及为大选提供软件和其他技术的公司”。

起诉书说,这些俄罗斯人为俄罗斯军事情报总局“格鲁乌”的两个部门工作。

美国总统川普和俄罗斯总统普京不久将在赫尔辛基会面。罗森斯坦说,他本周早些时候向川普总统通报了这些指控。

“总统完全了解司法部采取的行动”,罗森斯坦在新闻发布会上说。

今年二月,特别检察官起诉了一家俄罗斯媒体公司,起诉其12名员工及背后金主。

Twelve Russian military intelligence officers were indicted by the U.S. special counsel on Friday of conspiring to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment by a grand jury in Washington, D.C.

Eleven of the defendants were charged with conspiring to hack computers, steal documents and release them in an effort to influence the election.

The twelfth was charged with "conspiring to infiltrate computers of organizations responsible for administering elections, including state boards of election, secretaries of state, and companies that supply software and other technology used to administer elections," Rosenstein said.

The Russians worked for two units of GRU, Russia's military intelligence agency, according to the indictment.

The charges comes ahead of a July 16 meeting between U.S. president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Rosenstein said he briefed Trump on the allegations against the Russian operatives earlier this week.

"The president is fully aware of today's actions by the Department," Rosenstein told a press conference.

In February, the special counsel announced charges against a Russian social media troll company, 12 of its employees, and its financial backer.
