The new US Ambassador to Russia may soon be approved. This was stated by Charge d'Affaires of the United States in the Russian Federation Elizabeth Rud.
"We think that it will be approved, and we hope to see it here soon," RIA Novosti quoted her as saying. The diplomat noted that she expects the embassies of the two countries to be "fully staffed." At the same time, she admitted that she could not say exactly when this would happen.
