They are completely different. Democrats (and security intelligence) blamed Russian interference in spreading misinformation designed to push Trump's candidacy. There is actually strong evidence this happened.

The republicans actually claim the democrats stole/destroyed/added ballots. There is zero evidence of this.

The allegations are much much then Russians spreading misinformation. The allegation is that Trump is working for Putin. Even today I see late night comedians and a few political commentators working off of that assumption. The “evidence” for that is that it seems like something Trump would do and it seems like he is the type of person that would be susceptible to blackmail. IMHO the Russian interference was at most a negligible factor in the 2016 result.
