"The seized compounds have not been returned yet", Ms. Zakharova said, as translated by TASS, a state-owned newswire.

Moreover, according to Ms. Zakharova, the United States is now refusing to issue visas to Russian diplomats waiting to replace those who were expelled. Killenworth is one of two Russian compounds on the North Shore of Long Island with Norwich House, in Upper Brookville, being closed to Russian officials as part of the sanctions ordered by US President Barack Obama in retaliation for suspected Russian hacking during the US elections.

Russia said on Friday that too many American spies operated in Moscow under diplomatic cover and said it might expel some of them to retaliate against the United States over Washington's expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats past year.

Ms. Zakharova said Russian Federation hoped to hear "concrete proposals" on how to untangle the situation at a meeting on Monday between Sergei A. Ryabkov, the deputy foreign minister of Russian Federation, and Thomas A. Shannon, the under secretary of state of the United States. "The number of staff at the USA embassy in Moscow exceeds the number of our embassy employees in Washington by a big margin".

At the same time, she also expressed hope that the US will adopt a more constructive approach to resolving the diplomatic property dispute after Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump met face-to-face for the first time last week.

"There are too many employees of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon's espionage unit working under the roof of the American diplomatic mission whose activity does not correspond at all with their status", said Zakharova.

Putin has not yet taken any decisions on retaliatory measures, Peskov said.

The Washington Post first reported the administration was considering giving the compounds back in May, saying the White House considered giving back the compounds in exchange for permission to start construction back up at the USA consulate in St. Petersburg.
