Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov will return to Washington by the end of this month.
The agreement on the return of the heads of diplomatic missions of Russia and the United States to work was reached during talks between the leaders of the countries Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden in Geneva.
Earlier, the Russian and American ambassadors arrived in their countries for consultations.
Sergei Ryabkov noted that Antonov “sits on suitcases all the time, as the command came directly from the president.”
“I think that Anatoly Antonov will definitely return to Washington by the end of the month,” the Russian deputy foreign minister added. As Antonov himself stated, there is no exact date for the return of the ambassadors, but this is “a purely technical question.”
