Adding to this, Obama administration announced that it would close two Russian waterfront compounds outside Washington and NY, describing them as spy nests, CNN reported.

The outgoing Obama administration expelled 35 suspected Russian spies late a year ago and seized two diplomatic compounds over what it said was the hacking of us political groups during the 2016 presidential election.

Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor after just 24 days in the job, when it was revealed that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversation and American Intelligence intercepted a phone call by Russian officials who claimed they could use Flynn to influence Trump.

Russia said Friday it is "ready to take reciprocal measures" if the United States does not return property in America seized in December as part of the Obama administration's response to Russian meddling in the US election and harassment of American diplomats in Moscow.

Trump, he said, pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin "on multiple occasions" about election tampering when they met last week at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg.

"Return of the diplomatic property to Russian Federation must not depend on any conditions", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told reporters on Friday that Moscow "will have to take reciprocal measures" if the issue is not resolved.

The Trump administration on Tuesday removed the Moscow-based firm from two lists of approved vendors used by government agencies to purchase technology equipment, amid concerns its products could be used by the Kremlin to gain entry into US networks.

"There are too many CIA and Pentagon intelligence employees under the roof of the American diplomatic mission whose activities do not correspond to their status", Zakharova said. "If our American partners do not understand it in a different way, at some point we will have to take steps in this direction".

"If they don't discontinue this practice, then it will be hard to build relations".

"Washington not only did not rescind the decision to expel our employees, but also refuses to issue visas to those who must travel as replacements", Zakharova said.

"Attempts are being made to link the unlinkable and beat around the bush when it comes to actual issues", she added.

She also reminded that the public must have heard about the "adventures" of some of the USA spies, adding that "everything was available to the public - wigs, disguises and installations with performances".
