Kremlin hopes Helsinki summit may pave way for Trump Moscow visit

US tougher on Russia than anybody but chance for better relations with Moscow and Putin- Trump

Finland will reinstate border controls for travellers from Schengen countries for four days during a summit in Helsinki between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the government said on Friday.

The number of demonstrations taking place during the Trump-Putin summit has risen to 10, says Helsinki Police. So in a sense we're competitors, not a question of friend or enemy.

"We want there to be a possibility that these talks create an atmosphere that would allow us to discuss future contacts and, in particular, normal contacts in the form of visits to our respective countries".

"We'll be talking about meddling, and I will absolutely bring this up", Trump told reporters during a press conference on Friday in England.

However, the USA intelligence community has concluded that Russian Federation did interfere in the presidential election.

"I think we'll get along well".

"We agreed that it's important to engage Russian Federation from the position of strength and unity and that we should continue to deter and counter all efforts to undermine our democracies", she said.

"GRU officers who knowingly and intentionally conspired with each other, and with persons known and known to the Grand Jury (collectively the "Conspirators"), to gain unauthorized access (to "hack") into the computers of USA persons and entities involved in the 2016 US presidential election, steal documents from those computers, and stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the 2016 USA presidential election", says the Justice Department.

Trump also pointed to increased financial commitments from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies as a measure of his success, though it was not immediately clear what specific pledges he secured, and the President declined to elaborate beyond saying North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies will spend more on defense and do so faster.

Amid intensive diplomatic manoeuvring in the run-up to the summit, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a senior adviser of the Iranian leader held talks with Putin this week.

Trump to open trip by meeting with nervous North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders
Mr Tusk recalled that the Europeans are spending more than Russian Federation and as much as China on defence. Mr Trump has been accused of not really understanding the funding.

Even before Friday's jaw-dropping indictments against 12 of Putin's operatives, the Mueller investigation into the Russian cyberattack on our elections had already produced 79 criminal charges against 20 people and three companies, five guilty pleas and one person sentenced thus far. They just opened a big bridge that was started years ago.

The news Friday demonstrates why Trump's approach to our allies and his behavior overseas is so unsafe and makes American less safe.

Trump demurred on a question of whether the USA and Russian Federation could realistically build a stronger alliance given Moscow's intervention in Ukraine.

All that's important is whether, say, the USA and Russian Federation could discover to their pleasant surprise that they both like Hüsker Dü and can't stand cilantro.

Trump said he did not think Russian Federation would have invaded Crimea if he had been in the White House at the time.

Among the Twitter reactions: Top Democrats are demanding that Trump call off the Putin summit - and not always in the most pleasant language.

But in Russian Federation, where the political system is obsessed with hierarchy, status and displays of raw power, Putin has "already got his victory", said Andrey Kortunov, head of RIAC, a foreign policy think-tank close to the Foreign Ministry.

Most of all, the Helsinki summit provides Trump yet another live trial of his honest belief that he is uniquely qualified to build relationships and negotiate hard deals with American adversaries.

Still, some anxious Trump's combative stance toward allies could ultimately weaken the 69-year-old alliance.

May's office said it would not comment on The Sun article during a greeting with Trump and May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to review a military exercise.
