In a statement on Wednesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov accused the US of trying to meddle in Russia's internal affairs ahead of a presidential election next month.

Ryabkov said the Russian Foreign Ministry will not exclude the possibility of a response to the US’s sanctions against Russian citizens. He said Moscow has a list of US citizens who could be restricted from entering Russia.

On Friday, the office of special counsel Robert Mueller said 13 Russians and 3 Russian entities have been charged with interfering in the 2016 US election to help Donald Trump and damage his opponent Hillary Clinton.
