"Today's charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and no allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result", said Lindsay Walters, the deputy White House press secretary.
Relations between Russia and the USA have sunk to their lowest point since the Cold War times over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
The prime minister said that she "welcomed" Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which is to take place on Monday in Helsinki, Finland.
In response to the indictment, Democrats overwhelmingly called for Trump not to meet with Putin.

"The US intelligence community knows that the Russian government attacked the US", he said in a statement.
Trump has repeatedly called the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller a "witch hunt", and some of his allies have said the probe should be brought to a quick conclusion.

Trump indicated on Thursday that he does not have a list of demands for the Russian president. It went on to say they also "hacked into the computers of a US vendor that supplied software used to verify voter registration information for the 2016 USA elections". That, Peter Baker told FRONTLINE, "tells Obama everything he needs to know about Putin, that this is somebody who is, in his mind, locked in the past, who is- who is nursing resentment and who is going to never be a full partner of the United States".
"This was not an attack on Republicans or an attack on Democrats - this was an attack on the United States", he added.

"Helsinki Calling is not a protest against Trump or Putin", Hussein said.
Ahead of the Helsinki meeting, Trump upended the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit by demanding that America's closest allies more rapidly increase their defence spending, insinuating the USA might otherwise withdraw from the bloc.
Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain echoed the sentiment.
Failing to take as tough a tone with Putin - whose leadership Trump frequently compliments and praises, underscoring his desire for a friendly relationship - could be perilous. If Russia hacked someone again, this time on Trump's watch, Trump really might get annoyed at the perception that he can't - or won't - protect the country from foreign interference.
