Washington and Moscow drop some tit-for-tat sanctions to allow blacklisted Victoria ‘f**k the EU’ Nuland enter Russia for talks

Moscow has lifted sanctions on Victoria Nuland, allowing the US undersecretary of state to enter the country for a summit with her Russian counterparts. The US is said to have dropped sanctions on a Russian diplomat in exchange.

Nuland is expected to visit Moscow on Monday, where she will take part in three days of meetings with officials at the Russian Foreign Ministry. However, up until Sunday, Nuland was forbidden from entering Russia.

“She was actually on our sanctions lists that mean that a person cannot cross the border,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Russia-1 channel on Sunday. “[The US] included Russian representatives and foreign policy experts on their sanctions lists. So in this case, the question was resolved on a parity basis. Yes, she will be in Russia,” Zakharova added.

The US reportedly initiated the summit.
