Putin summit kicks off in Helsinki

EU President Donald Tusk suggested that US President Donald Trump was "spreading fake news" by calling Europe a US foe and urged the Trump-Putin summit on Monday to protect the world order.

According to the Associated Press, Mr Trump originally expressed concern Helsinki was not glamorous enough and favoured hosting Mr Putin at the White House, but was persuaded it would be effective. 300 billboards on the routes from the airport to the summit are filled with news headlines regarding presidents' attitude towards the press freedom.

Thousands of human rights activists have taken to Helsinki's streets on Sunday, to protest against the controversial presidential summit. He added, "The media shouldn't be the lap dog of any president or regime".

Just hours before President Donald Trump was to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Trump blamed the special counsel's Russia investigation as well as US policy under President Barack Obama for souring US-Russia relations - and in doing so he may already be giving Putin a pass.

Putin, for his part, said he and Trump have maintained regular contact by phone and meeting at worldwide events but "the time has come to have a thorough discussion on various global problems and sensitive issues".

But one of the computer generated videos he used to illustrate the weapons showed them hitting Florida, where Trump frequently visits his Mar-a-lago golf club and resort. "Fuck you both", read another carried by two young women.

But William Courtney, an adjunct senior fellow at the non-partisan Rand Corporation in Washington, said Trump might try to secure some minor deliverable agreements.

Some fear Mr Trump will announce a withdrawal of USA troops in eastern Syria - he has spoken several times about getting America "out of Syria".

England ladies also found themselves in the World Cup finals three years ago, only to be beaten 2-1 by Japan in the final game. "A lot of teams who go on to win trophies lose in quarter-finals or semi-finals first".

That hand stayed gripping the side of the chair even as Putin went in for a handshake with Trump, perhaps providing stability during the shake. I find it hard to believe, but that's what one of the purposes of this meeting is so the president can see eye to eye with President Putin and ask him about it, " Bolton said.

"I think we have to protect ourselves", Paul said.

Police Scotland said a 55-year-old man had been arrested and charged in connection with the stunt organised by Greenpeace, which saw the paraglider hover within surprising proximity of Mr Trump on Friday evening. Trump could talk about what could come of the meeting, but instead he focuses on who he thinks is trying to undermine it.

U.S. President Donald Trump sat down with Vladimir Putin for a long-awaited summit on Monday saying he wanted good relations with Russian Federation, after blaming Washington's own past "foolishness and stupidity" for the countries' hostile ties. "I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked". "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think".

Peskov said Putin respects Trump's "America first" stance because he also puts Russian Federation first, but that the only way to make progress at the summit is if both sides are open to finding areas of mutual benefit.

Mr Trump's meeting with the Russian President comes days after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted in the USA over alleged of Democrats ahead of the 2016 USA election.

The Russian foreign ministry "liked" his tweet. "China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe", he continued.
