From The Kremlin
President Vladimir Putin, in response, to hardening policy towards Russia:
Statement by the President of the Russian Federation
December 30, 2016, 15:15 (English translation)
New unfriendly steps of the US outgoing administration are seen as a provocation aimed at further undermining the Russian-American relations. This is clearly contrary to the fundamental interests of both Russian and American peoples. With taking into account the special responsibility of Russia and the United States for the preservation of global security - inflicts damage and the whole complex of international relations.
According to the prevailing international practice, the Russian side there is every reason for an adequate response.
Reserving the right to retaliate, we will not stoop to the level of "kitchen" irresponsible diplomacy and further steps towards the restoration of Russian-American relations will be built on the basis of the policy, which will carry out the administration of President D. Trump.
Returning to his homeland, Russian diplomats will spend the New Year holidays in the circle of relatives and friends - at home. We will not create problems for American diplomats. We will not send anyone. We will not prohibit their families and children to use for their usual vacation spots in the New Years holidays. Moreover, all children of American diplomats accredited in Russia, I invite you to New Year's and Christmas tree in the Kremlin.
It is a pity that the President Obama administration completes its work this way, but, nevertheless, I congratulate him and his family a Happy New Year.
Congratulations and elected President D. Trump, the American people!
I wish all welfare and prosperity!
President of Russia
