Putin appoints Russia's new Ambassador to NATO

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree appointing Alexander Grushko Russia's permanent representative to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Brussels, the press service of the Kremlin said.

Earlier, another presidential decree relieved Grushko of his duties on the position of the deputy foreign minister in connection with his transfer to another job, RBC reports. Russia's ambassador to Italy, Alexei Meshkov, will become his successor as deputy foreign minister.

Sources in Moscow said that Grushko would arrive in the capital of Belgium in November, adds BFM.Ru. The position of Russia's permanent representative to NATO became vacant in December 2011, when Dmitry Rogozin was appointed vice prime minister. NATO earlier complained that because of the impasse on the issue of missile defense and the U.S. election campaign the relations of the alliance with Russia had stalled.

"We hope that with the arrival of the new ambassador the relations will get more dynamic," officials in Brussels said.
