The future press Secretary elected President of the USA of Donald trump Sean Spicer doubt that new US sanctions are a proportionate response.
“Why is it on such a scale? That is, a view 35 people are sent, two objects are close, the question is a proportionate response to their actions?” – said Spicer in an interview with ABC News.
He recalled that when in 2015, allegedly, Chinese hackers gained access to systems planning and administrative management of the US administration, “nothing happened.” Then it was reported that in the hands of the criminals could get the data more than 4 million Americans.
“The question is whether there is a political penalty or a diplomatic answer,” said Spicer.
We will remind, on December 29, the US imposed sanctions against nine Russian institutions, companies and individuals, including against the GRU and the FSB, for “meddling in the election”. In addition, 35 Russian diplomats in the US were declared persona non grata.
