US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland may come to Moscow, but so far even an approximate date cannot be given. Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov explained the reason.
A “forbidden” politician from the United States may come to Russia. We are talking about the US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland. However, in May 2019, the woman was blacklisted: then she was banned from entering Russia and refused a visa.
Antonov commented on the information about Nuland’s possible visit to Russia.
“She was not given a visa,” the ambassador said in response to a TASS question.
From the fall of 2013 to January 2017, Victoria Nuland oversaw, among other things, issues related to US policy towards the states of the former USSR. She worked in the Barack Obama administration.
In 2014, Nuland came to Kiev. She publicly supported protesters on the Maidan, whose speeches led to a coup d’état and the ouster of Viktor Yanukovych as President of Ukraine. Nuland became a media star when she handed out cookies to protesters in central Kiev.
