The United States and Russia are not among 50 countries that have signed a pledge to fight cybercrimes, including interference in elections, The Associated Press reported.

The AP reported that the pledge had been pushed for by French President Emmanuel Macron.

American intelligence agencies have said that Russia interfered in the United States’s election in 2016, a charge Russia has denied. Russia’s interference in the election included hacking the Democratic National Committee with a cyberattack.
