Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov proposed to expel 35 US diplomats, but Vladimir Putin will not "sink to the Americans' level."
- We will not create problems for US diplomats. We will not expel any and we will not prohibit families and children to use their resorts in their New Year's celebrations. Moreover, I invite all children of American diplomats to a Christmas party in the Kremlin, said Vladimir Putin in a statement.
Putin, who also took the opportunity to wish Barack Obama and his family a happy new year, said meanwhile that he "reserves the right" to retaliate the sanctions, but says that they plan their next step in repairing the Russian-US relations based on the politics of Donald Trump's government.
On Thursday, Barack Obama said that the United States has expelled 35 Russian diplomats and given them 72 hours to leave the country. The president also warned that the reprisals were only beginning. The diplomats were declared persona non grata for acting in a "manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status."
Without actually presenting any evidence, the White House clearly states that Russia's government is behind the systematic cyber attacks against the US government and American interests, including the intention to influence the presidential election and undermine trust in government and democracy.
- All Americans should be alarmed by Russia's actions, Obama said Thursday.
Although before the election he claimed any suggestions of external involvement and rigging to be "ridiculous," but then again, the mainstream media polls were pure fiction, and Hillary was supposed to win:
Obama: - Ridiculous!
