President Trump tweeted that relations between Russia and the US have never been worse, right before the summit meeting with President Putin, and even called the current situation a “witch hunt”.

The summit will take place today, July 16, 2018, in Helsinki, Finland. The main goal of the summit is the normalization of Russian-American relations, which came under threat after the events of 2014 in Ukraine and Crimea and allegations of Russian “meddling” in the American Presidential elections two years ago. The Syrian crisis is also on the agenda for the meeting.

This isn't the first time that Helsinki has played host for vital international talks. Back in 1975, the Helsinki Accords lowered the tensions between the Soviet bloc and Western countries.
