Kremlin statement says Vladimir Putin 'proud' of Russia's World Cup 'heroes'

Putin will claim that he and Trump have had enough of these institutions, which seek to block Russian Federation and exploit US generosity.

In May, the World Trade Organization (WTO) sided with the us on the issue of the European Union breaking WTO rules with subsidies to airplane manufacturer Airbus. But Trump's claim that the US pays 90 per cent of NATO's total defense spending isn't corroborated by available data.

"Don't watch what he says, watch what we do".

In the event the US President also proposed to return to Russian Federation in the elite club to resume meetings in the format of "big eight", Which was indignantly rejected by the European leaders. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", Trump tweeted a day before he departs for the summit, which will take place July 11-12 in Brussels.

But Hutchinson, and the USA ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, gave upbeat assessments of the upcoming meetings.

Trump departs Tuesday on a four-nation tour amid simmering disputes over trade and military spending with fellow Western democracies and speculation about whether he will rebuke or embrace Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Wolfgang Ischinger, head of the Munich Security Conference and a former German envoy to Washington, said it is possible that Trump could refuse to sign a communique at the July 11-12 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, mirroring what he did at a recent Group of Seven summit.

Some diplomats fear that Trump will threaten to pull troops out of Europe without more spending on defense, despite USA denials.

"NATO really is making progress, and they are doing it really at President Trump's insistence", Hutchinson said on "Fox News Sunday".

Sources told the newspaper Kommersantthat the Kremlin has submitted a two-page document to the White House with a first draft of a potential statement Moscow hopes Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will make at the conclusion of their Helsinki summit next week. "What we achieved, that was so cool", Andrey, a lawyer, said next to a street corner screen that had shown the match. We hope Trump's conciliatory vibe toward Russian Federation in recent days doesn't foreshadow damaging giveaways.

Second, Putin will blame all of the problems in U.S. -Russia relations on Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.

Allies are braced for a barrage of invective from Trump for not spending enough on defense, and are apprehensive that his often skeptical tone on the alliance that has underpinned European security for 70 years might turn into outright hostility. "They are still trying to undermine the election cycle in 2018", said Lindsey Graham. This would follow the pattern he established several weeks ago when he trashed the G-7 gathering in Canada and then all but hugged North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
