Russia Ambassador Returning to US 06/20 10:18
MOSCOW (AP) -- Russia's ambassador is returning to the United States three
months after being recalled as tensions rose between Moscow and Washington.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Joe Biden agreed at their
summit in Geneva last week on the return of Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov
and U.S. Ambassador John Sullivan, who left Moscow in April.
Antonov on Sunday boarded an Aeroflot flight to New York and then was to
travel to Washington. No date for Sullivan's return has been announced.
Antonov was called home after a Biden TV interview in which he said Putin
was a killer; Russian officials then suggested Sullivan should leave.
