Russia announced that if Washington takes new hostile steps for the Russian cyberattacks during the US presidential election, it will receive an answer, is said in a statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry (MFA).

"If Washington takes new hostile steps, it will receive an answer. This applies to any actions against Russian diplomatic missions in the United States, which will immediately backfire at US diplomats in Russia. The Obama administration probably does not care at all about the future of bilateral relations, but history will hardly forgive it for this après-nous-le-deluge attitude," is mentioned in the statement of the Russian MFA.

The outgoing US administration has not given up on its hope of dealing one last blow to relations with Russia, which it has already destroyed. 

The Obama administration launched this misinformation about some cyber-attacks from Moscow half a year ago.

"Frankly speaking, we are tired of lies about Russian hackers that continue to be spread in the United States from the very top." – declared the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The comment of the Russian MFA follows the information appeared in the US media about Obama preparing to penalize Russia for meddling in the US 2016 election
