The US President Donald trump has offered former Governor of Utah John Huntsman to become U.S. Ambassador to Russia. About it reports TV channel “112 Ukraine” with reference to the publication Politico, citing a source in the US administration.
The huntsman needs to send to the White house paper with confirmation of their willingness to take on this position. After that, Washington will officially announce his nomination as Ambassador.
It is reported that huntsman hasn’t answered the request for publication, but as a source told Politico, he’s likely to give consent.
