President Joe #Biden and President Vladimir #Putin face off Wednesday at a tense #Genevasummit, where ghosts of the Cold War will hover over modern-day #US concerns about #Russian #cyberattacks and what the White House sees as a dangerous authoritarian drift. Up to five hours of talks are planned, starting at around 1:00 p.m. (1100 GMT), with no break for meals. Putin is due to arrive first, then Biden, with Swiss President Guy Parmelin acting as host.
