Russian government officials are watching former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony before Congress Wednesday while continuing to deny Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Wednesday "We will follow" Mueller's testimony and reiterated "There are no grounds for asserting that Russia tried or is going to  meddle [in U.S. elections], as the FBI head said recently," according to Russia's TASS News Agency.

Mueller submitted a confidential 448-page report to the Justice Department in March on his two year investigation of President Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election. A redacted version of the report was publicly released in April.

The report said the probe did not uncover sufficient evidence to warrant charges of a criminal conspiracy between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. But the report also said investigators did not exonerate Trump of trying to obstruct the probe.

Mueller is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee and the House intelligence committee.
