According to Sputnik, a senior official from the White House said Washington is going to give back Russia's diplomatic properties only under the condition that it will receive something in return from Moscow.

Mr Obama said he was ordering the ban due to U.S. intelligence reports of Russian hacking and an alleged influence campaign to sway the USA presidential election in Mr Trump's favour.

"What is happening is - de facto and de jure - a violation of global law", he said.

The Kremlin spokesman said Russia still has hope that "our American colleagues will show political wisdom and political will" and return the properties to Russian use. "Contacts are happening between the foreign policy departments".

Former President Obama in December ordered the seizure of two Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and Long Island and expelled 35 diplomats over Moscow's meddling in the election.

President Vladimir Putin raised the issue with Donald Trump when they met for the first time at the G20 summit in Hamburg this month.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke on July 17, hours ahead of a scheduled meeting in Washington between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and U.S. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon.

U.S. intelligence services believe Russian Federation ordered cyber attacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Hillary Clinton's campaign and other political organizations, in an attempt to influence the election in favor of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. "I want to confirm that the retaliatory measures are in the works", Zakharova told reporters.

"We still hope that our United States colleagues will show some kind of political wisdom and political will", Peskov told reporters.

Asked what the Kremlin would do if nothing comes out of Monday's meeting, Peskov said: "Let's not jump ahead, the situation is quite sensitive and - let's be straight - it's quite hard".
