On Monday, October 11, the US Deputy Secretary of State arrived in Moscow on a three-day visit. Victoria Nuland… According to the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova, it was the American side that insisted on the visit.
“Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland will travel to Moscow, Russia on October 11 to meet with senior officials and other interlocutors to discuss a range of bilateral, regional and global issues.”

Since Nuland was under Russian sanctions, in order for her trip to Moscow to take place, the United States lifted sanctions on several Russians, after which the US Deputy Secretary of State was removed from the Russian sanctions lists.
