Russian Federation 'ready to take reciprocal measures' if United States doesn't return compounds

Moscow losing patience over seized Russian properties in US: Kremlin

When a United States hacker boasted last October he had successfully hacked the ministry website, Zakharova said he had targeted a defunct version of the sitem The Moscow Times reported.

The United States refused to issue visas to Russian diplomats slated to replace embassy staff expelled in December, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova said Friday.

Trump, he said, pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin "on multiple occasions" about election tampering when they met last week at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg.

Peskov said the Kremlin is running out of patience and will retaliate by expelling USA diplomats and seizing American property in Russian Federation unless an agreement to return the seized compounds comes out of high-level talks due to resume on July 17.

"We don't want to resort to extreme measures".

The warning, delivered by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, reflects rising frustration in Moscow over the Trump administration's refusal to hand back two Russian diplomatic compounds which were seized at the same time as some of Russia's diplomats were sent home past year.




Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor after just 24 days in the job, when it was revealed that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversation and American Intelligence intercepted a phone call by Russian officials who claimed they could use Flynn to influence Trump. "As for the measures - the number of personnel at the USA embassy in Moscow significantly exceeds the number of our personnel working in Washington".

When asked specifically by Tapper about those two compounds, Gorka said the United States needs to find ways to work with Russian Federation.

In an interview with USA media on Tuesday, Veselnitskaya denied any links with the Russian government and said she didn't have any damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Trump's presidential election rival.

Also on Wednesday, the Russian Federation Council (upper house of the parliament) Speaker Valentina Matviyenko warned that Russia will "respond appropriately" to the US seizure of its properties if diplomatic efforts fail.

Russia said on Friday that too many American spies operated in Moscow under diplomatic cover and said it might expel some of them to retaliate against the United States over Washington's expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats previous year. "So, one of the options is that, apart from expelling the corresponding number of United States diplomats, we will just have to even the number of personnel", Zakharova added. He told CNN the White House was considering what to do regarding the diplomatic compounds in order to improve that relationship.
