In Moscow there is a sense that the command of the US Democratic party is trying their recent decisions to take revenge on President-elect Donald Trump for his victory, said in an interview with RIA Novosti, the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

According to her, currently, «leaving the administration keeps trying to worsen bilateral relations, not realizing that there’s nowhere».

«Honestly, I have the feeling that now a team of Democrats just trying to get back at Trump for the victory, taking just an absurd decision for a month before his inauguration,» said the diplomat. As an example of such behavior, she cited the recent decision to supply heavy weapons to the Syrian opposition.

Before Barack Obama signed the law including the procedure and conditions for the supply of MANPADS to the so-called Syrian opposition. In December, the President of the United States took formal restrictions on the supply of arms, ammunition and military equipment to the allies to combat terrorism in Syria.

On Thursday the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama imposed sanctions against nine Russian institutions, companies and individuals, including against the GRU and the FSB. The USA closed the Russian diplomats access to the two residential complexes. Persona non grata declared 35 Russian diplomats.
