U.S. Ambassador to Host Town Hall

U.S. citizens living in Russia will have the opportunity to put their questions directly to U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul at a town hall-style meeting at his Spaso House residence next week, the embassy said Tuesday.

The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on March 22, and invitations will be sent to all U.S. citizens registered with the embassy's American Citizens Services Unit, the embassy said in a statement.

All U.S. citizens are welcome, and attendees should R.S.V.P. in advance with the embassy consular section and be ready to show their U.S. passport upon entry, it said.

"This is the first time in recent decades that Americans have been invited to Spaso for this type of meeting, and to meet and ask questions of the U.S. ambassador and embassy staff," the statement said. "The town hall format is an American institution, both in the United States and among our citizens overseas, and we're so pleased to bring it to historic Spaso House."

McFaul took up his post on Jan. 10 after working for the previous three years at the White House as President Barack Obama's top adviser on Russia.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
