The Kremlin said on Monday it hoped the Trump administration would find the political wisdom to solve a diplomatic dispute with Moscow over the seizure of Russian diplomatic property in the United States.

Barack Obama, then U.S. president, ordered the seizure of two Russian diplomatic compounds and the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats in December over what he said was their involvement in hacking the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, something Russia flatly denies.

Russia has said too many American spies operate in Moscow under diplomatic cover and has said it might expel some of them to retaliate over the incident.

Kremlin says need for measures for genuine Ukraine ceasefire

  Kremlin says need for measures for genuine Ukraine ceasefire Implementation of the Minsk agreements to end the conflict in Ukraine's crises has been too slow, and there is a need for measures leading to a genuine ceasefire, a Kremlin spokesman said on Saturday. "There is an understanding that effective measures should be taken, which would lead to real ceasefire on the frontline and to ensure military hardware withdrawal," Dmitry Peskov told reporters during a regular conference call.

It has said a lot will depend on the outcome of a meeting in Washington later on Monday between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and U.S. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon.

"We still hope that our American colleagues will demonstrate a certain political wisdom and political will," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters when asked about the dispute.

Peskov said any U.S. preconditions to return the property would be unacceptable for Moscow and said Washington's failure to hand back the compounds ran counter to international law.

He declined to discuss what steps Russia would take if the meeting between Ryabkov and Shannon failed to resolve the row.
