President Barack Obama issued a series of executive orders against Russian individuals and intelligence agencies on Thursday in retaliation for their efforts to influence and subvert November’s presidential election.

“Russia’s cyberactivities were intended to influence the election, erode faith in US democratic institutions, sow doubt about the integrity of our electoral process, and undermine confidence in the institutions of the US government,” the statement said. “These actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Beyond these sanctions, the Obama administration has also ordered the expulsion of thirty-five Russian diplomats and the closing of two Russian compounds on U.S. soil.  Although a part of a separate statement, these orders also pertain directly to Russian hacking, as well as what the White House has called “a campaign of intimidation” against American diplomats.

“These actions were taken to respond to Russian harassment of American diplomats and actions by the diplomats that we have assessed to be not consistent with diplomatic practice,” one White House official said.

The United States has complained on multiple occasions about Russian security agents and traffic police harassing American diplomats in the Russian capital, prompting U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, to bring up his concerns to both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov in the past.

“By imposing costs on the Russian diplomats in the United States, by denying them access to the two facilities, we hope the Russian government reevaluates its own actions, which have impeded the ability and safety of our own embassy personnel in Russia,” the official said.

The two compounds that will be closed, located in New York and Maryland, were reportedly used for Russian intelligence gathering, according to the White House’s statement.  The officials listed in the president’s executive order will be given seventy-two hours to depart the United States and access to the closed facilities will be terminated for all Russian officials at noon on Friday.

These actions, though expansive and unprecedented, do not account for the entirety of Obama’s planned reprisals for Russian interference in the election.  President Obama hinted at the possibility of further, more discreet, actions to be taken by the United States.
