Putin has not yet taken any decisions on retaliatory measures, Peskov said. "One of the easy options", she said, would be to demand a reduction in the number of Americans assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, which she said far exceeds the number of Russians in Washington.

The US may return two diplomatic compounds seized by the Obama administration back to Moscow, if it sees "acts of good faith" from the Kremlin, similar to the recently brokered ceasefire in Syria, Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump, said on Thursday.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, and Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland signed the letter.

In January, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow had foiled a number of incidents involving intelligence activities by members of the American diplomatic mission in Russia.
