Adding to this, Obama administration announced that it would close two Russian waterfront compounds outside Washington and NY, describing them as spy nests, CNN reported.

US lawmakers have raised concerns that Moscow might use the firm's products to attack American computer networks, a particularly sensitive issue given allegations by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation hacked and leaked emails of Democratic Party political groups to interfere in the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Those US moves included the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic personnel, including consulate cooks, and the seizure of a pair of vacation houses belonging to the Russian government as diplomatic compounds, which the US took as part of sanctions for "election hacking" allegations.

Russia could expel more than 35 Americans, Ms. Zakharova said, making sure that the same number of diplomats work in the United States Embassy in Moscow and the Russian Embassy in Washington.

The warning came in response to comments made by an adviser to President Donald Trump, Sebastian Gorka, who linked the rollback of sanctions to Russia's adherence to a deal to cease-fire in Syria.

Gorka said "the last thing" one could say about Trump was that he was weak, and that Trump had pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter at a meeting last Friday.

He declined to say when Moscow could take its retaliatory action.

When pressed Thursday by CNN's Jake Tapper on why the Trump administration is considering returning two Russian compounds to US soil, White House aide Sebastian Gorka pointed to the importance of giving "collaboration, cooperation, a chance".

The Russian government has threatened to retaliate against the United States months after dozens of Russian officials were expelled from the U.S. and two of its properties were shuttered. "We know how to respond". "And so I don't see what the Russians have done that would merit a return", Clapper told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.
