    Russia's President Vladimir Putin has sent France’s president-elect Emmanuel Macron a telegram telling him he wants to put aside mutual mistrust.

    Macron's team accused Russia of trying to deliberately hurt their candidate's chances in Sunday’s election.

    A huge number of emails from Macron's campaign were made public on Friday after being hacked. Some pundits are pointing the finger at Russia.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports from Moscow.
