US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland has resigned from her post. Speaking to Radio Sputnik, Russian political scientist Alexander Konkov said that her departure is highly symbolic, and could presage important changes in the Trump State Department's attitude toward US-sponsored regime change operations.
Emphasizing the importance of the post vacated by Nuland, Konkov stressed that Moscow will now be
waiting impatiently praying to see who takes her place in President Trump's State Department.
