Russia has promised to respond to the expulsion of 35 of its diplomats from Washington, amid a bitter dispute over alleged Russian interference in the recent US presidential election.

A spokesman for President Vladimir Putin said the Kremlin's reaction would cause the US "significant discomfort".

However, he hinted that Russia may wait until Donald Trump, who has played down the hacking claims, becomes president.

Russia has denied any involvement and called the US sanctions "ungrounded".
