Russia withdrew its ambassador in March in protest of an interview in which Biden answered in the affirmative when asked if he considered Putin a “murderer.” Last Wednesday, the Russian president and his American colleague agreed that their ambassadors should return to their workplaces as a sign of the resumption of dialogue.
The US ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, left Russia in April — also, as he was officially known, for consultations at home. Previously, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Sullivan suggested returning to Washington – as part of new US sanctions against Moscow. Sullivan also wants to return to Moscow soon.
The US government imposed new sanctions on Russia in April for a cyber attack and for election interference. Moscow denied these allegations and described the punitive measures as a violation of international law. In return, the Russian government also imposed sanctions and expelled American diplomats among others.
