Donald Trump to press Vladimir Putin on election meddling, Ukraine aggression

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven R-N.D. left Sen. John Thune R-S.D. center and Sen. Jerry Moran R-Kan. chairman of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection Product Safety Insurance and Data Security speak to the Associated Press in the U.S. Embassy in Mos

We will remind, the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs Elena zerkal expects when meeting the US President Donald trump, and Vladimir Putin will discuss the issue of releasing Ukrainian political prisoners.

The Washington Post recently reported that the Pentagon was evaluating the cost of transferring or withdrawing the troops - the biggest contingent outside the United States.

Much, of course, depends on the president's mood, which is rarely good during global conferences where he bristles at what he considers the unfair economic and security alliances the United States constructed in the wake of WWII and the Cold War.

European leaders are reportedly nervous that President Donald Trump will make good on his campaign promise to withdraw USA troops from the continent if host countries fail to pay their fair share for defense.

"And we are the schmucks who pay for the whole thing", he said, using a slang term for "fools".

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the conclusion of the US intelligence community that Russian Federation meddled in the election and has dismissed the investigation into potential collusion with members of his campaign as a "witch hunt" meant to delegitimize he presidency.

He added: "Healthier coffee, free from sugar or syrup, should also be encouraged to optimize any health benefit". Moreover, to get the benefit, it didn't matter whether someone metabolized caffeine slowly or quickly.

Europeans should spend more on defense. Last month, he abruptly refused to sign a joint statement with the G-7, the world's largest economies, following a meeting in Canada.

Separately, U.S. Representative to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison told reporters Thursday that the alliance is moving forward together, and "everyone has the same goal, and that is a strong deterrent and an alliance that is unified" against threats like Russian Federation and China. According to trump, presidents are expected to discuss Ukraine, Syria, and "many other topics" at its first separate meeting.

Her comments come just weeks after Trump charged that America is "the piggy bank that (NATO) likes to take from", and "we like to help out, but it helps them, they're in Europe".

Poland, Romania and the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been asking the USA for additional troops for several years.

Still, Trump has repeatedly threatened to punish countries if they don't spend enough on defense, even suggesting the USA may not protect them if they don't pay their fair share. No other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member comes close to this proportion, and the vast majority fail even to meet the modest, self-imposed requirement to devote at least 2 percent of GDP to defense. In addition, Bolton said that he was talking with Putin about the Crimea, stressing that the United States position in respect of ownership of the Crimea remained unchanged. "I'm not going to get ahead of any announcement or any action he could potentially take, but as you guys know, he's shown some frustration there on the financial burden that the United States unfairly is forced to bear, and he wants changes", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters this week.

According to Pew Research Data, more than 60,000 US troops are now stationed in Europe, including 35,000 in Germany, 12,000 in Italy, 8,500 in Britain, and 3,300 in Spain, with thousands more rotating into other European countries as needed.
