Ambassador Ralph Lysyshyn

The Embassy of Canada in Russia is the diplomatic mission of Canada in the Russian Federation. It also includes in its mandate the countries of Armenia and Uzbekistan, and provides visa services to residents of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. To service such a vast area the mission in Moscow is staffed with 47 Canadian diplomats who are supported by 108 locally-engaged personnel, based in the chancery and three other buildings, and a fleet of 22 vehicles. From Moscow, Canada supports small consulates in Vladisvostok, Tashkent (Uzbekistan), and Yerevan (Aremenia). A consulate-general in St. Petersburg was closed in March, 2007.

Located at 23 Starokonyushenny Lane (Russian: Староконюшенный переулок, 23) in the Khamovniki District of Moscow the three-storey yellow and white art-nouveau style chancery also houses the ambassador's official residence on the top floor.[1]
