The Soviet Union today named Yuri V. Dubinin, a veteran diplomat who was appointed Soviet ambassador at the United Nations just two months ago, as its new ambassador to the United States.

Dubinin, 56, who before his U.N. appointment served seven years as ambassador in Madrid, replaces Anatoly F. Dobrynin, the “dean of Washington diplomats” who returned to Moscow after 24 years in Washington after his appointment in March as a secretary of the Communist Party’s Central Committee.
