Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, who has been the subject of an investigation into his country’s alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election, is being recalled after 10 years on the job.

Buzzfeed reports the Kremlin has ordered its U.S. ambassador to return to Russia amid growing investigations by the FBI and Congress into whether the foreign government tried interfere in the election to help Donald Trump. 

The FBI is probing meetings held between Kislyak, 66, and Trump’s campaign team. Among those who met with Kislyak are Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former national security adviser Mike Flynn. During Sessions’ confirmation hearing, he failed to disclose at least two meetings with Kislyak, whom one U.S.-based diplomat responded “could use some time away.”

At other times, Kushner and Flynn denied now-confirmed meetings with the ambassador.

Russia has yet to confirm when Kislyak is returning to Russia  or whether he’ll be reassigned.
