The sanctions are more against nineteen individuals and five organizations, including two Russian intelligence services. It is also to thirteen individuals and three organizations that by special prosecutor Robert Mueller in a state of accusations are made because of interference.
With cyber-attacks, it was a series of American organisations in the field of energy, infrastructure and trade, who were victims, according to the ministry.
What sanctions exactly entail is still unclear. Moscow responded by counter-measures to announce.
