    A video of the US diplomat answering various questions by Russian internet users appeared online.

    John Huntsman, US Ambassador to Russia, confessed that he would prefer pelmeni (dumplings) with sour cream to beer.

    The surprising revelation about the Russian dish was made while the diplomat was answering a blitz of questions of Internet users.

    A corresponding video has been published on the US Embassy's Twitter account.

    Huntsman also said that he thinks Russia and the United States "are already friends" and believes that the two countries have more in common than it seems at first glance.

    Pelmeni are the Russian national dish, which consists of a filling (usually minced meat) wrapped in thin dough.
