U.S. Says ‘No Agreements’ With Russia Amid Reports Some Sanctions Could Be Lifted

The United States has reached no agreements with Russia, the State Department said Wednesday night in response to reports that the Trump administration was considering returning two Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States that the Obama administration shut down last year.
The Washington Post reported that the Trump administration was taking steps to hand back the compounds — one in Maryland and one in New York — which former President Barack Obama ordered shuttered in December in retaliation for the alleged orchestration of hacking attacks designed to interfere in the presidential election.
