Russia's Izvestia newspaper reported Tuesday that Moscow plans to expel some 30 USA diplomats and seize several US properties in Russian Federation, citing a foreign ministry source.

CNN quoted the ministry's spokeswoman, Maria V. Zakharova, as saying that after US President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin last week, Russia expected the US "to take a more constructive approach" to resolving the dispute.

Earlier this week, Russia's Foreign Ministry Sergey Lavrov said Moscow was considering retaliatory measures against the United States over the seizure of two of its diplomatic facilities on American soil, which were shuttered at the end of Barack Obama's Administration.

Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, on Thursday said it was time for the two countries to "move on" from allegations of election interference.

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russian state-sponsored hackers and propagandists interfered in last year's White House race by targeting Mr. Trump's former Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

On Friday, Zakharova said the attacks on the ministry's mail server, which occurred on June 29, "resulted in grave consequences", reports The Moscow Times.

Patrick, the first of the four to go missing, just finished his first year at Loyola University in Maryland, a Jesuit school. Cosmo DiNardo was being held on $5 million cash bail after he was charged with trying to sell one of the victims' cars.

The website earlier suggested that there is an impression that a certain unofficial agreement on the issue has already been reached between Washington and Moscow which will allow the U.S. to maintain the status quo, while Moscow will at last answer with responsive measures by expelling American diplomats and arresting USA diplomatic property in Russian Federation.

Trump's positive comments about Russian leader Putin both before and after he assumed office as President of the United States have caused additional concerns. Perhaps the Trump campaign all of the meetings with Russians taken by the president's campaign were all just coincidental, and they all just happened to forget about them - until, of course, the media uncovered them.

"The seized compounds have not been returned yet". She also criticized the United States for not issuing visas to diplomats who are supposed to replaced the expelled staff.

She also reminded that the public must have heard about the "adventures" of some of the U.S. spies, adding that "everything was available to the public - wigs, disguises and installations with performances". "One of the easy options", she said, would be to demand a reduction in the number of Americans assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, which she said far exceeds the number of Russians in Washington.

He told CNN the White House was considering what to do regarding the diplomatic compounds in order to improve that relationship.
