The White House has unveiled a series of sanctions against Russia for election-related cyberhacking.
The package of penalties include the ouster of 35 Russian officials and the closure of two Russian state-owned enterprises in the U.S.
The measures are the toughest yet the Obama administration have taken to date for a cyberattack. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s response has been muted. He has rejected the country’s foreign minister’s recommendation to retaliate and vowed to work with President-Elect Trump to better US-Russia relations.
Guest host Patt Morrison discusses the censures with a panel of Russian experts and historians.
