MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Sergey Kislyak has been serving as Russia’s ambassador to the United States since 2008.
"First, you still need to ask the Foreign Ministry. When there is an appropriate decree, we will inform you," Peskov told reporters, answering a question on the Russian Ambassador's possible resignation from his post and future employment.
On Sunday, Michael McFaul, the US Ambassador to Russia between 2012 and 2014, bid Kislyak well on his Twitter and noted that he enjoyed working with him even if they disagreed.
Antonov previously served as the Deputy Defense Minister of Russia. Antonov has spent over 30 years in the Foreign Ministry, with his work being focused on issues of security and disarmament. In February 2011, Antonov became Deputy Defense Minister. He was appointed Deputy Foreign Minister on December 28, 2016.
