Today, the United States imposed sanctions on Russia for interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The State Department kicked out 35 Russian diplomats from its embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco, giving them and their families 72 hours to leave the U.S. The diplomats were declared persona non grata.

Obama said Russians will no longer have access to two Russian government-owned compounds in the United States, in Maryland and in New York (which were used for intelligence gathering)

Individual sanctions were imposed on leaders of Russian intelligence services, the GRU and the FSB, plus companies which the U.S. says support the GRU.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a summary of joint FBI and CIA report on Russian Hacking - available here:

2,900 explosions in a day!

"While Russia continues to support the separatists, the West has buttressed the Ukrainian war effort through training programs and nonlethal aid that includes vehicles, counter-artillery radar, body armor and night-vision equipment. The most recent defense bill passed by the U.S. Congress allocated an additional $50 million for Ukrainian military assistance in 2017, bringing the total to $350 million."
