Russian President Vladimir Putin says Russia won't be expelling U.S. diplomats in a tit-for-tat response to U.S. sanctions, as his foreign minister had suggested earlier Friday.
Instead, he says he will decide how to move forward depending on the actions of President-elect Donald Trump's administration.
Trump took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to praise Putin's decision, calling it a "great move."
