JOE Biden is reportedly preparing sanctions against Russia, including banishing officials from the US, over election meddling and cyber attacks.
The president's administration is set to announce a string of measures against Russia on Thursday, according to officials with knowledge of the matter.
The measures will include financial sanctions as well as the expulsion of a limited number of diplomats from the country, according to Bloomberg.
The sanctions will reportedly be an answer to Russian hacking of government and private networks, and a range of other activity.
The sanctions would come after President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke on Tuesday, with Biden reportedly telling the Russian leader that the US would act to defend its interests.
Biden reportedly also proposed the idea of a meeting where the two leaders would discuss issues currently facing their two nations.
