MOSCOW (Reuters) - Allegations of Russian meddling in elections in the United States and Europe are "fantasies", the Interfax news agency cited Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Tuesday.

"Without a single piece of proof, we are as you know being accused of meddling not only in the U.S. election, but also in those in European states," the agency quoted Lavrov as telling a briefing at the Association of European Businesses in Russia.

"Recently, there was an allegation that Moscow decided what minister to appoint in South Africa. In general, there is no limit to fantasy."
