President Obama to Nominate Mike McFaul as Ambassador to Russia

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama will nominate Mike McFaul to be his next Ambassador to Russia, a senior administration official tells ABC News.

McFaul, director of Russian and Eurasian Affairs on the National Security Staff and a special assistant to President Obama, has been one of the key players in the president's attempt to "reset" the at-times rocky US-Russian relationship while also pushing Russia to embrace human rights and to respect the territory of neighboring countries such as Georgia.
