US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a figurant of the Russian blacklist, will be able to obtain permission to issue visas to Russian diplomats, who had previously been denied. These are the data of the newspaper “Kommersant”…
At the same time, Russia is ready to issue a visa to an American diplomat in the near future. The Kremlin curator of the countries of the former USSR, Dmitry Kozak, can take her into black.
For this, Moscow, in particular, requires Washington to issue a visa to Konstantin Vorontsov, a specialist in the Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry. The one from the fall of 2019 has not been able to obtain travel approval in the United States.
Earlier, the Russian media learned that Washington and Moscow are considering the possibility of a visit by Victoria Nuland. Then it was argued that she could visit Russia in November. During the presidency of Barack Obama, she repeatedly held talks on Ukraine with the then Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, as Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs.
In September 2020, the United States refused to extradite 13 Russian diplomats, as well as parliamentarians. They were supposed to accompany Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on a trip to New York for the high-level week of the UN General Assembly. In addition, permission was not issued to eight of our remarks, which should participate in the work of the First Committee. Washington also refused to issue visas to representatives of the Defense Ministry and Roscosmos.
