Election hack-gate fuels US, Russia cold war

As his term runs out and amidst concerns of mega cyber hacking by Russia during the 2016 USA Presidential elections, President Barack Obama has fired the first salvo by expelling 35 Russian diplomats from Washington, while giving them 72 hours to leave the country with their families. In a related development, Russia has vowed to retaliate the expulsion. A spokesman for President Vladimir Putin says the Kremlin's reaction would cause the USA 'significant discomfort'.
