Bloomberg said that the administration of US President Joe Biden has completed an intelligence review on issues related to Russia, such as interference in the US elections and piracy.

The agency added that the US review paves the way for steps that may include sanctions or the expulsion of Russian intelligence officers.

In an interview broadcast by ABC last month, Biden pledged Russia to pay the price if it was proved that it had meddled in the last US elections.

Biden said that the Russian President (Vladimir Putin) should be prepared to pay the price if it is proven that he interfered in those elections.

Biden's pledge came after the release of a US intelligence report that supported previous accusations that the Russian president was behind Russia's interference in the US elections, which Moscow has repeatedly denied.

The report said that Russian interference in the recent US elections was targeting Biden, who ultimately won over his Republican rival, Donald Trump.
