The Trump-Putin Summit:
Where Does the U.S.-Russia Relationship Go from Here?
Ground Truth Briefing
On July 16, President Trump met with President Putin in Helsinki. Coming in the wake of a turbulent NATO meeting and amid high stakes, the summit has garnered intense focus. There are deep divisions on key issues between the U.S. and Russia, including election interference, the wars in Ukraine and Syria, and arms control. Were agreements reached or was the summit short on substance?
In this Ground Truth Briefing, veteran observers and practitioners of U.S.-Russia policy offered a post-summit assessment and analysis.
