Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet US President Donald Trump for the first time this week on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
The Kremlin says they will have “a fully-fledged, sit-down meeting” which will touch upon a number of pressing foreign policy issues, including Syria and Ukraine.
The meeting has been preceded by months of speculation about a “bromance” between Mr Putin and Mr Trump, fuelled by alleged Russian interference in last year’s US election and rumours that Russia strongly favoured Mr Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
