US President Donald Trump's nominee as ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman gave a speech at the Foreign Relations Committee in Washington DC on Tuesday, in which he highlighted problems that could potentially arise in the future of US-Russia relations. Huntsman, who is the former Governor of Utah, said that while he appreciated Russia and its people, he is unable to ignore diplomatic issues... Еще between itself and the US. «Our disagreements are with the government of Russia, not with its people. While the Russian government has sought to limit US public diplomacy, our diplomatic mission in Russia continues to engage ordinary Russians,» said Huntsman. Senator Ben Cardin criticised the Russian government as Huntsman fielded questions. «The Russian people are good people that want basic freedom, our issue is with the Russian government that's denied basic rights to its own citizens and has interfered with the sovereignty of other countries,» Cardin said.
