John Sullivan is blacklisted by the US administration.
On February 24, the American press reported that the administration of US President Donald Trump and his allies over the past year and a half have compiled detailed lists of disloyal government officials who needed to be “ousted to replace them with supporters” of the head of the White House. Among those proposed to be removed was the name of the new US ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan.
“After the Senate’s justification of Trump, the aides say that the president has crossed the psychological line regarding what he calls the“ deep state ”. He feels that his government – from justice to state, defense and national security – is filled with “snakes”. He wants to be fired and replaced as soon as possible, ” the source emphasizes.
We remind you that in February, the new US ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan, expressed the view that relations between Moscow and Washington have reached their lowest point in the last 30 years – that is, in the entire post-Soviet history of the Russian Federation. The diplomat said that the goal of his work is to stop the decline in relations and even improve them. However, he acknowledged that the task is difficult and it is not known exactly how long it will take to solve it.Negotiations on the EU-British partnership will begin in early March
