Reuters has the details.

“To be honest, we are tired of lie about the ‘Russian hackers’, which is being poured down in the United States from the very top,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

The Guardian notes that a prominent U.S. senator has made clear where those sanctions will point.

“There will be bipartisan sanctions coming that will hit Russia hard, particularly Putin as an individual,” Graham told CNN. “I would say that 99 of us believe the Russians did this and we’re going to do something about it.”

A recent report in the Washington Post said the White House was already close to announcing new sanctions on Russia in retaliation for the hacking. The White House did not respond to a request for comment on the report.
