Chairperson Joe Biden announced it would nominate Lynne Tracy, the current ambassador to Armenia, as the US ambassador to Russia.

Tracy, a diplomat by profession, will take over from John Sullivan, who left Moscow earlier this month and announced his intention to retire. Tracy served as the second senior official at the US Embassy in Moscow from 2014 to 2017 as deputy head of the delegation. Previously, she also served as a senior adviser on Russian affairs at the Department of European and Eurasian Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Tracy’s nomination as ambassador comes at a critical time for US-Russian relations amid ongoing tensions over the Ukraine invasion.

Throughout her career, Tracy has worked at US diplomatic outposts including Turkmenistan, Pakistan, and Kazakhstan. Tracy majored in Soviet Studies and holds a law degree. She speaks Russian.

Elizabeth Rood, Deputy Chief of Mission to Russia, has led the US embassy in Moscow since Sullivan’s departure.
