“President Joe Biden will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Switzerland on June 16, the White House announced on Tuesday. Although Biden and Putin have known each other for years, this will be their first summit since Biden became president. ‘The leaders will discuss the full range of pressing issues, as we seek to restore predictability and stability to the U.S.-Russia relationship,’ press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. U.S.-Russia relations have been tense since Biden took office, as the White House [accused Moscow of] election interference and cyberattacks, among other aggressions.” (05/25/21)
