Moscow: US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft stated that Russian residents often recommended places for him to eat pelmeni, so he called himself "Mr. Pelmeni."
"During one of the first conversations with the Russians "VKontakte" I mentioned that I really like pelmeni. It broke up on the Internet, so from then on, wherever I went, the locals wrote me about where they can eat pelmeni. It seems that I became "Mr. Pelmeni," Tefft said in an interview with Tass.
The head of the American diplomatic mission, John Tefft, will leave Russia in September.
