moscow/washington - Sergei Kisljak, Russian ambassador to the United States, returns to Russia. That states the US website Buzzfeed on behalf of three sources. The 66-year-old Russian diplomat plays an important role in the US study of Russia's influence of the US presidential elections last year.
Kisljak has been an ambassador to the US capital since 2008. The US-Russia Business Council in Washington holds a farewell reception for Kisljak on July 11, so read on the website of that organization.
The Kremlin and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow did not want to respond substantively to the possible departure of Kisljak on Monday, reports the Russian state press office Sputnik. According to the English-language The Moscow Times, Kisljak is succeeded by Anatol Anatolov, who is now Foreign Minister of Foreign Affairs.
