Biden issues new Russia sanctions and expels 10 diplomats for election interference and hacking
The White House says the expelled 10 include representatives of Russian intelligence services.
Reports of alleged"bounties" surfaced last year, with the Trump administration coming under fire for not raising the issue directly with Russia.The measures announced on Thursday include sanctions on six Russian companies that support the country's cyber activities, in addition to sanctions on 32 individuals and entities accused of attempting to interfere in last year's presidential election, including by spreading disinformation.
The 10 diplomats being expelled include representatives of Russian intelligence services, the White House said.The sanctions, presumably intended to send a clear message to Russia and to deter similar acts in the future, are certain to exacerbate an already tense relationship between the US and Russia.
