Antonov, appointed ambassador by presidential decree last week, takes over from Sergei Kislyak, whose contacts with members of President Donald Trump’s campaign team made him a central figure in the row over alleged Russian influence in the U.S. presidential election.

The two men discussed bilateral relations and “some international problems”, the ministry said.
