US ambassador to Russia to resume work this week

United States Department of State spokesperson Ned Price told reporters on Monday that the US ambassador to Russia John Sullivan will fly back to Moscow to resume his diplomatic work this week, following the agreement between US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on returning their envoys to mutual capitals.

"Ambassador Sullivan will return to Moscow this week. That's in part because we remain committed to open channels of communication with the Russian government, both as a means to advance US interests but also to reduce the risk of miscalculation between our two countries," Price said.

State Department also welcomed the return of Russian ambassador Anatoly Antonov to Washington D.C., who had arrived at the American capital on Sunday and had resumed work at the Russian embassy.
