Putin to Meet Trump in Vietnam Friday, Kremlin Aide Says

Donald Trump / Kremlin Press Service

President Vladimir Putin will meet U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday, the Russian president's foreign policy aide said on Thursday.

News of the meeting comes a day after Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov confirmed that Putin was ready to meet his U.S. counterpart.

Putin’s foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov told reporters on Thursday that the meeting will take place on the first day of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam.

“Right now, at this moment, the time is being agreed,” the state-run news agency TASS cited Ushakov as saying.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
