Trump Arrives in Finland for Meeting With Putin

  • US envoy to Russia 'Highly unlikely' that Trump will recognize Russia annexation of Crimea

Putin announced the foiled attacks after the final - and just before meeting Donald Trump, who is facing growing concerns about alleged Kremlin meddling and Russian cyberattacks on the U.S. electoral system.

"Parity is ensured by the invention of new weapons systems called to cement nuclear parity", Peskov told RT on the eve of Putin's summit with Trump.

"I hadn't thought of that", Trump said.

"Well, I might", Trump said. Putin claims that the Obama administration fomented the pro-Western revolution in Kiev that year in a bid to weaken Russian influence, and that Russia needed to take over Crimea to protect Russian speakers on the Black Sea peninsula.

Trump held his meeting just days after a special prosecutor in the United States indicted 12 Russian agents for stealing Democratic Party documents to help him win the vote.

Any Trump request for Russia to extradite hacking suspects is likely to fall on deaf ears, however, as the Kremlin, citing the Russian constitution, has a policy of not handing over suspects wanted by other countries.

Chairman of the House intelligence committee Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said that Mueller's indictment "would look ridiculous" if Trump declassified portions of his committee's report dealing with Russia's efforts to steal and release the Democrats' emails.

But doing so, Huntsman cautioned, "doesn't necessarily mean that the Russians are going to follow through".

Standing alongside Putin at a joint news conference, Trump acknowledged that his intelligence chiefs believe Russian Federation hacked Democrats´ emails and leaked them to help push him to victory over his rival Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Foreign policy observers will be watching to see whether Trump has kinder words for Putin in Helsinki than he did for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels.

Trump will focus on Russia's 'malign' activity at summits
Putin will meet alone at the summit because the president decided that this is the right time for direct communication, said Mr. The summit will follow a NATO meeting in Brussels where Russian Federation will also top the agenda, said U.S.

"So, it's a good thing these presidents are getting together".

"Would you ask Putin to send them here?"

The Obama administration did, in fact, take action, including confronting Putin in person as well as expelling almost three dozen Russian diplomats the US said were actually intelligence operatives and imposing new sanctions.

"We had much better defenses".

President Donald Trump can find a mean word to say about nearly anyone: Pope Francis, a Gold Star family, Arizona Sen. "I think it's ridiculous". "They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked".

Hovering over Helsinki is the specter of the 2016 election interference and ongoing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian Federation.

He has said multiple times during his European excursion that he will raise the issue of election interference with Putin but said he doesn't expect Putin to confess to the meddling and so otherwise he has little recourse.

Trump has made comments in the past about the European Union and continued to name Russian Federation and China as opponents in particular arenas of national activity. Political analyst Alexei Malashenko suggested that for Putin, the meeting was "an informal recognition of Russian Federation as a great power". Republican Sen. John McCain has also said Trump should not meet with Putin unless he holds the Russian president accountable.

"President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", Trump said as he stood next to Putin at a joint news conference between the two leaders following their talks in Helsinki.

Trump told Putin that he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel "and they agree with me" about the "outrageous" nature of the video, a source told Axios. "Nobody there really believes that any good can come out of this summit". And so having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea, I believe in it.
