 White House to impose new sanctions against Russia for hacking US elections, - The Washington Post

The White House will soon announce the introduction of a number of punitive measures against Russia in response to its interference in the U.S. presidential race this year.

The Obama administration is close to announcing a series of measures to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election, including economic sanctions and diplomatic censure.

The White House is still finalizing the details, which are also expected to include covert action that likely will involve cyber operations. An announcement on the public elements of the response could come as early as this week.
