'It will be helpful if they (the Russians, - 112 International) stop interfering in our election (...), get out of Crimea and the Donbass in Ukraine (...), stop using illegal chemical weapons to conduct assassination attempts against Russian exiles in the West, and if they would be less intrusive in the Middle East,' Bolton said.
According to Bolton, such behavior was what had prompted Washington to impose sanctions on Russia in the past, he said, saying U.S. officials were in the process of deciding whether to impose more sanctions on Moscow.
Earlier, the U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order on toughening sanctions towards the Russian Federation because of its aggression against Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier, the U.S. authorities pressed charges against 12 Russians who are suspected of hacking email accounts of the Democratic Party leaders during the presidential election campaign in 2016. According to the investigation, the officers of the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate were included in the list. They are accused of organizing the cyber-attacks, hacking the mailboxes, stealing the documents and their further spreading in the network.
