- In the 2018 year, Huntsman was persuaded to resign after Helsinki Summit with Trump and President Vladimir Putin. Then it seemed that Trump had sided with Putin regarding Russia's interference in the 2016 elections of the year. But Huntsman said he would continue serving in the “fragile” era of US-Russian relations.
- 6 August 2019 US Ambassador to Russia John Huntsman submitted President Donald Trump resignation letter. And 3 October 2019 year left his post - exactly two years after he headed the US Embassy in the Russian Federation.
