Helsinki Summit
18 | July | 2018

At the Helsinki Summit, US President Trump and Russian President Putin sit down to debate a number of issues pertaining to international politics and security, namely war in Syria, arms control and the situation in the Ukraine. Taking place only a few days after the NATO summit, this meeting has elicited much speculation over its outcome, but also raised concerns in Europe over the prospect of the USA’s “friendliness” towards Russia leading to concessions.
