Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov said that all his requests to Congress to meet with U.S. lawmakers ended in failure. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
“I’m very happy for US Ambassador to Russia John Huntsman, who warmly welcomed our parliamentarians. Maybe the movement from the other side will be able to move the situation forward,” said the diplomat.
October 12, Antonov blamed the deterioration of relations between Moscow and Washington in the United States. In particular, according to him, ripped the flag from buildings of the Russian departmenti San Francisco and Washington are “extremely unfriendly steps”.
Antonov, who previously worked as Deputy foreign Minister of Russia, was appointed Ambassador after his mission was completed, Sergei Kislyak.
