Before Friday's indictment, Mueller's team had charged 20 individuals and three companies as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible ties to Trump's campaign.
USA intelligence agencies have said the meddling was aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming the election bid of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Rosenstein said he briefed Trump on the latest indictment earlier this week, as the president embarked on a European tour that included the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, a visit to the United Kingdom and an upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Trump said was not his enemy, but his "competitor". GRU units 26165 and 74455, the indictment says, "conducted large-scale cyber operations to interfere with the 2016 presidential election".
Mueller's probe has come under sustained attack from Trump and his supporters in Congress, who call it a witch hunt and a politically-motivated attempt to hurt the president.
Rosenstein said the Russians tried to infiltrate computers of state boards, secretaries of states and others who administer elections.

"We have been extremely tough on Russia", Trump said.
"We have this stupidity going on, pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation because, anything you do, it's like: "Russia, oh he loves Russia", he said. "Anything you do, it's always going to be, 'Oh, Russia, he loves Russia'".
