The Russian foreign ministry has called for the expulsion of 35 US diplomats in response to a similar move by Washington.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the request had been made to President Vladimir Putin.

The Obama administration imposed sanctions over alleged Russian hacking during the recent US presidential election campaign.

Russia denies any involvement and calls the US action "ungrounded".
