The U.S. expects that Russia changes behavior - specifically, abstains from meddling with the Congress election slated for November. John Neely Kennedy, the junior U.S. Senator from Louisiana said this in his interview for Kommersant. 

'We warned our interlocutors: if Russia continues to interfere with the U.S. domestic affairs and does so during the November election in Congress, our reaction will be immediate and very tough', he said.

He added that the Russian delegation will not visit the U.S. until the American side makes sure the Russians are ready to cooperate. 

'This is too early to speak about it now. First, we need to see the changes in Russia's behavior. Russia should stop meddling with the U.S. business, which would be a good start', he said.

The senator also said that Washington would not like to go into any draconian measures, but in case Russia continues to meddle with the election in the U.S., the reaction will be immediate.

The U.S. delegation arrived in Russia earlier this week; they met and negotiated with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov. The sides are also reported to have discussed Russia's actions in Ukraine and Syria.
