Washington President biden to nominate new ambassador
Biden plans to nominate Lynne Tracy,
a career diplomat currently serving in Armenia
Tracy, who speaks Russian and was the No. 2 diplomat in Moscow
The Biden administration hopes to get her in place swiftly to replace John Sullivan who stepped down earlier this month.
The US has already given Tracy’s name to the Russians to begin that process, two sources said.
Russia does want to maintain diplomatic relations with the US
and could be motivated to accept Tracy without delaying the process
to ensure their ambassador in Washington maintains access.
