Ahead of the leaders' first one-on-one summit, the Kremlin said it considers Trump a "negotiating partner".

President Donald Trump's top national security adviser said he finds it "hard to believe" Vladimir Putin didn't know about top Russian military intelligence officials' extensive efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA presidential election - efforts the Russian president has repeatedly denied were state sponsored.
US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that, after the indictments, Trump "can put this on the table and say, this is a serious matter that we need to talk about". Russia's constitution forbids the extradition of its own citizens.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser reaffirmed Moscow's insistence that it did not try to influence the election as the US Justice Department was preparing to announce charges against the 12 Russians.
Congressional Democrats and at least one Republican have called on Trump to pull out of Monday's meeting unless he is willing to make Russian election-meddling the top issue. Trump added his Republican Party had also been the target of Russian hacking efforts but had superior cyber security measures in place. I've been told that by a number of people.

The police said 16 or more demonstrations were registered before and during the summit, and on Sunday around 2,500 people got together at the Helsinki city center Senate Square to protest against the summit and Trump.
