Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin during a meeting with the President of the United States Donald trump is ready to compromise "on the issues", but the status of Crimea. I asked him again.

The two leaders will meet on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland, where they will discuss relations between the two countries as well as "national security issues", the White House has said.

The two leaders have crossed paths twice since Trump began his term in office, however both times the meetings came on the sidelines of bigger summits. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members were anxious that if the summit with Putin had taken place earlier, Trump might have agreed to something with the Russian leader that they would have been forced to go along with.

Trump, asked on June 29 whether reports about him dropping Washington's opposition to the Russian annexation of Crimea were true, said, "We're going to have to see". "I think we'll be talking about Syria". And Trump will not be able to change much, if anything, when it comes to Putin's "Russia first" policy.

Trump asks Saudis to up oil output to lower prices
OPEC agreed with Russian Federation and other oil-producing allies this month to raise output from July by about 1 million bpd. Iran had been pushing hard for oil producers to hold output steady as US sanctions are expected to hit its exports.

If Trump raises the issue of Russia's alleged meddling in the USA elections in 2016, Putin will reiterate his position that Moscow has nothing to do with that, Peskov told a conference call with reporters.

Last week, Trump suggested in a tweet that he believed Putin's denials, noting that "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".

The president has repeatedly questioned the actions of the FBI in connection with their investigation of Clinton's email use.

The upcoming Helsinki summit has been criticised by members of the opposing Democratic Party who described it as a gift to the Kremlin and expressed concerns over what else Trump might give away.

The US president answered similarly when asked if he would consider lifting sanctions on Russian Federation, originally imposed over Crimea.

"So I think it still raises the question", Bolton said. There could be agreement on nuclear non-proliferation, or even on US-Russia mutual nuclear cutbacks. Putin is known as a shrewd negotiator who some officials worry could exploit such a session and extract concessions from Trump.

During the Singapore summit, however, "Kim Jong Un said to me: The two of us have to get a picture together".

The European Union and United States originally imposed the sanctions to penalize Russian Federation for its illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its backing of separatists fighting against the Ukrainian government forces in eastern Ukraine.
