Russia ready to cooperate with US, Russia's Lavrov told Tillerson: ministry

But Putin's action goes far beyond Obama's action, and will bring the number of US staff at embassies and consulates in Russian Federation down to 455.

Ryabkov's comments come after Russian Federation demanded Friday that the United States cut its diplomatic staff in Russian Federation and said it would seize two U.S. diplomatic properties in a sharp response to the new sanctions bill.

The diplomats must leave the country by September 1, The New York Times reported.

If Russia seizes the USA diplomatic compounds on its soil, it would also be a case of tit-for-tat.

Russia's response to order the USA to cut its number of diplomats in Moscow mirrors moves by outgoing President Barack Obama last December to expel 35 Russian diplomats and shut down two Russian estates in the US.

This is more or less direct retaliation for the move in December, in which the Obama Administration seized a pair of vacation houses owned by the Russian Embassy in the US. "As of today, I am against it", Putin said. "It was the last drop".

These moves were caused by a series of hostile actions by Washington, including "unlawful" sanctions and "slanderous" accusations against Russia, said Lavrov, according to a statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry. "We have a very rich toolbox at our disposal". But it appears as if Russia's interference in the election only increased the tension. The Senate vote followed an equally strong vote in the House of Representatives. The House previously approved the measure by a 419-3 margin.

Trump read drafts of the bill and negotiated elements of it before agreeing to sign it, the White House said in a statement.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election despite the U.S. intelligence community concluding otherwise. News of the talk came in the wake of reports that Donald Trump, Jr., met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign after being told he could gather damaging information about Hillary Clinton in the meeting.

The Foreign Ministry also accused the USA of violating diplomatic protocol, particularly in its seizure of two Russian diplomatic compounds in NY and Maryland that the US said were being used by Russian intelligence.

Presidential spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said Friday morning he had "nothing to add" to the document issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Lavrov added, however, that Moscow was ready to "normalize the bilateral ties with the USA and cooperate on important worldwide issues". "Nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction, countering terrorism, illicit immigration, trafficking in people, climate change, you name it", he said.
