New U.S. sanctions would be attempt to hamper Russia-U.S. cooperation, Moscow says

News Hour:

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that if the United States imposed new sanctions on Russia over hacking allegations it would be an attempt to disrupt possible cooperation between the two countries, the RIA news agency reported.

The Obama administration is expected to announce on Thursday a series of retaliatory measures against Moscow for allegedly hacking into Democratic Party organizations ahead of the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election, reports Reuters.

RIA also quoted the Foreign Ministry as saying it thought any new sanctions could be reversed by Donald Trump, who will succeed Barack Obama as president in January.
