Key takeaways from the Biden-Putin summit – DW, 17.06

  • US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin have concluded a high-stakes summit in Geneva aimed at cooperation but dominated by deep disagreements.
  • The leaders’ first in-person meeting since Biden became president took place at a lakeside villa amid soaring tensions between their two countries.

  • After the meeting, the two sides released a joint statement on one of the main topics of discussion, nuclear proliferation. The statement read, “Nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.”

Rising US-Russia tensions after Joe Biden agrees that Putin is a ‘killer’ – DW, 17.03

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin will face consequences for interfering in US elections, US President Joe Biden said in an ABC News interview that aired Wednesday. “He will pay a price,” Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “You’ll see shortly.” The comments came a day after a US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) report concluded that Putin approved “influence operations aimed at denigrating President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party, supporting former President Trump, undermining public confidence in the electoral process, and exacerbating sociopolitical divisions in the US,” in an effort to swing the 2020 US presidential election.
  • Tensions have soared between the US and Russia in recent years over hacking and election interference allegations and Washington’s demands that Russia free jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny. In early March, Washington announced fresh sanctions over Navalny, who was immediately imprisoned upon returning to Moscow from Germany, where he had been treated for nerve agent poisoning in what many say was a clear assassination attempt by the Kremlin. The sanctions were added on top of those already imposed on Moscow after its 2014 annexation of Crimea.
