Russian Deputy Foreign Minister (FM) Sergey Ryabkov revealed on Wednesday that the US ambassador will return to Moscow within a few days.
“He will come within the next few days. He will be in Moscow literally within days,” Ryabkov said in press statements.
Earlier this week, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov returned to Washington, DC after spending almost three months in Moscow.
Last Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin concluded their summit meeting that has lasted for about 65 minutes.
In a press conference held after the summit, Putin said they have agreed to return their ambassadors to their posts in a bid to lower tensions.
Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, was recalled from Washington about three months ago after Biden described Putin as a killer. U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan left Moscow almost two months ago after Russia suggested he return to Washington for consultations.
