"We gave time for the new administration to examine this disgusting legacy and begin to build the bilateral relationship on the basis of mutual respect", Ms. Zakharova said.

Russia has vowed to kick out American diplomats if the U.S. refuses to reopen two Russian compounds - one on Long Island and another in Maryland - that were shuttered a year ago.

Moreover, according to Ms. Zakharova, the United States is now refusing to issue visas to Russian diplomats waiting to replace those who were expelled.

She said Moscow's course of action would depend on the outcome of a meeting in Washington on July 17 between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and U.S. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon.

Zakharova did not specify the number of U.S. diplomats facing expulsion, but said that the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow was much more than Russian Embassy workers in Washington. Russian Federation is ready to shut them if the issue is not resolved, Ms. Zakharova said. "So, one of the options is that, apart from expelling the corresponding number of USA diplomats, we will just have to even the number of personnel".

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

At the same time, she also expressed hope that the US will adopt a more constructive approach to resolving the diplomatic property dispute after Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump met face-to-face for the first time last week.

Putin has not yet taken any decisions on retaliatory measures, Peskov said.

"At the same time, we have pointed out repeatedly that the situation both with diplomats and the property continues to be unacceptable".
