BREAKING: Russia announces new ambassador to U.S.; man described as “bull terrier”

The Moscow Times reports the Kremlin will soon have a new man in Washington.

“Russia and the United States are simply doomed to positive cooperation,” Antonov was quoted by the TASS News agency as saying following his confirmation.

“We have to fight the chief evil — international terrorism — together,” he said.

Antonov’s candidacy was sponsored by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and will now be submitted to Russian President Vladimir Putin for final approval, TASS reported, citing a source on the Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee.
