The currency notched its strongest level against the greenback since July 2020 last week, according to Reuters data. The dollar dipped to below 72 against the Russian currency to an intraday low of 71.5, as the price of oil notched a 26-month high and Russian inflation surged in May, raising interest rate expectations further. Meanwhile Russian bond yields rose last week even as U.S. yields retreated. "There's likely to be more room for further gains in the ruble in the near term as oil prices and local bond yields rise further," said Emerging Markets Economist Liam Peach. A "carry" trade involves using a high-yielding currency to fund a trade with a low-yielding one, attempting to pocket the difference between the interest rates.

Fiona Hill told the Financial Times that Russia "declared war quite a long time ago in the information sphere." After recent hacks and cyber attacks linked to Russia, cybersecurity is poised to be a major topic. Hill said Russia is ruthless in its pursuit of intelligence and indifferent to any damage inflicted in the process. "The Russians take great pride in their novel ways of getting at you ... in many respects it's a continuation of the Cold War," Hill said. The FBI attributed two recent cyber attacks — one that shut down a major US oil pipeline and another that disrupted production for the world's largest meat supplier — to Russia-linked ransomware gangs.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden issued a warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of their Wednesday summit that the death of jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny would hurt Russia's relationships with the rest of the world. "Navalny's death would be another indication that Russia has little or no intention of abiding by basic fundamental human rights," Biden said at a press conference Monday following the NATO summit. Biden will raise several pressing concerns but will also seek areas where Russia and the United States can work together. "Mr. Navalny, like all Russian citizens, is entitled to his rights under the Russian constitution," Biden said in a speech to U.S. diplomats. In March, the Biden administration slapped sanctions on seven members of the Russian government for the alleged poisoning of Navalny.

The Group of Seven (G7) wealthy nations on Sunday demanded Russia take action against those conducting cyber attacks and using ransomware from within its borders. The communique said Russia must "hold to account those within its borders who conduct ransomware attacks, abuse virtual currency to launder ransoms, and other cybercrimes". Britain has previously said Russia is a leading proponent of cyber attacks. The G7 statement called for wider action against ransomware attacks, describing the practice of encrypting victims' data and demanding payment for its return as an "escalating shared threat". "We call on Russia to urgently investigate and credibly explain the use of a chemical weapon on its soil," the G7 document said.

G7 summits are notorious for anodyne and slightly ridiculous photo opportunities which leave world leaders struggling to seem natural in bizarre contexts - for example meeting another world leader on a small, overcast English beach. Under grey clouds, British prime minister Johnson, with ruffled blonde hair, and his new wife Carrie, greeted other G7 leaders and their partners on a specially constructed wooden gangway beside the Atlantic. After the leaders returned for a socially distanced "family photograph", Germany's Angela Merkel urged Johnson ahead, telling him: "You are the leader." French President Macron held back, making a few remarks to Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, before Biden draped his arm around Macron who returned the embrace. President Biden urged journalists to go swimming, feigning an order: "Everybody in the water."

Just one week before the Biden-Putin summit, Navalny's political network on Wednesday was officially outlawed in Russia after a Moscow court declared it to be "extremist."

Biden's upcoming summit with Putin will be one of his biggest tests yet as president. Experts say it's unclear what Biden hopes to gain from Putin, who wants to keep the US as an adversary. If Biden doesn't come out with "clear deliverables," the summit could be perceived as a win for the Kremlin, a former US official warned. Experts warn that Putin has no intention of using the meeting to improve relations, and question what Biden has to gain via the summit. The Biden administration's actions to punish Russia, however, have yet to produce a demonstrable change in behavior from Putin.
