(CNN)The Russian Ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, has returned to Washington, DC, after spending almost three months in Moscow, the Russian embassy tweeted Sunday, days after US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to send both the US and Russian ambassadors back to their posts during their meeting in Geneva last week.
The ambassadors’ absense had sent a signal that diplomatic relations between the two countries had hit a new low.
Antonov told Russian news outlets that he was in an “optimistic mood” before returning to Washington after the Biden-Putin summit.
The US Ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is scheduled to return to Moscow in the coming days.
