Trevor Reed was diagnosed with Covid-19 last month, and his family is struggling to get updates about his condition. Putin said in an NBC News interview on Friday ahead of the summit with Biden that he's open to a prisoner swap. Asked about the imprisoned men, Putin said Reed was a "troublemaker" and "drunk" who "got himself s**t-faced and started a fight." "Of all the major issues between our countries, this prisoner exchange is probably the easiest," Joey Reed said.

“NATO is critically important for U.S. interests in and of itself,” Biden said from NATO’s headquarters in Brussels while speaking with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. “Russia is not acting in a way that is consistent as we hoped, as well as China,” Biden said during his brief meeting with Stoltenberg. The new framework will be adopted at the 2022 NATO summit. At the end of the day, Biden is expected to hold a press conference from NATO headquarters. On Tuesday, Biden will participate in a summit with the European Union and then will travel to Geneva, Switzerland.

GENEVA—With U.S.-Russian relations at a post-Cold War low, Wednesday’s summit between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin is gearing up to be a showdown between two leaders who have long been at odds. Both sides have indicated they plan to use the summit in Geneva to project strength on the global stage and have lowered expectations that it will lead to a thaw in relations between Washington and Moscow. “It’s about making myself very clear what the conditions are to get a better relationship with Russia,” Mr. Biden told reporters after the Group of Seven summit of wealthy democracies Sunday in Cornwall, England. “We’re not looking for conflict—we are looking to resolve those actions which we think are inconsistent with international norms.”In an interview with NBC released Friday, Mr. Putin said the U.S. and Russia “have a bilateral relationship that has deteriorated to its lowest point in recent years.”Mr. Biden said on Sunday, “To be clear, I think he’s right; it’s a low point.”

BRUSSELS—President Biden meets with leaders of NATO allies in Brussels Monday, seeking to encourage a more concerted response to Chinese security threats and to bolster an alliance jolted by broadsides from his predecessor. U.S. officials said Mr. Biden will emphasize his commitment to the principle of collective defense enshrined in Article 5 of the treaty that established the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1949, following some uncertainty about Washington’s view of the matter under former President Donald Trump. During the meeting, NATO’s 30 member countries will take initial steps to revise the group’s Strategic Concept, which sets out the group’s goals. The Strategic Concept will be adopted next year, and is expected to touch on Russia, China, cybersecurity and climate change, according to U.S. officials. The summit comes two days before Mr. Biden is scheduled to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva and Mr. Biden will brief allied leaders on that.

NATO welcomes Biden in ‘pivotal’ post-Trump summit

NATO leaders hope to open a new chapter in transatlantic relations at a summit with U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday, agreeing to focus on tackling climate change for the first time as well as facing up China’s military rise. Described as a "pivotal moment" by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, the summit aims to turn the page on four tense years with Biden's predecessor Donald Trump, who shook confidence in the Western alliance by calling it "obsolete". 1/4 Banners displaying the NATO logo are placed at the entrance of new NATO headquarters during the move to the new building, in Brussels, Belgium April 19, 2018. But foremost in leaders' minds, diplomats say, is a need to hear Biden recommit the United States to NATO's collective defence after the Trump era. Trump's confrontational rhetoric towards allies from 2017 to 2019 at NATO summits created an impression of crisis, envoys said.

The study detailed decades of decline by European militaries, such as: "Much of Europe's military hardware is in a shocking state of disrepair. The allies' inability to meet the challenges that Biden considers key could also be the source of new tensions.

Live Live Updates: Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan Leaves Democrats a Big Choice A plan from a bipartisan group of lawmakers does not address climate change and omits money for child and elder care. A bipartisan group of 10 senators met last week to discuss a framework for an infrastructure package. The group is pushing for a proposal that is much smaller than the $1.9 trillion package that Mr. Biden has proposed. But Biden administration officials said that they were mindful of how Mr. Putin seemed to get the better of Mr. Trump in Helsinki. The spectacle in 2018 drew sharp condemnations from across the political spectrum for providing an opportunity for Mr. Putin to spread falsehoods.

In February, the United States and Russia extended the New START arms control treaty for five years, preserving the last treaty limiting deployments of the world's two largest strategic nuclear arsenals. The 2010 New START treaty limits the two countries to deploying no more than 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads each and imposes restrictions on the land- and submarine-based missiles and bombers to deliver them. "What is important is that there is an ambition expressed to reach zero and start chipping away at the nuclear arsenals." The last decade has seen huge modernisation and upgrades of U.S. and Russian nuclear programmes, with new types of nuclear weapons, which play an increased role in the two powers' security policies, she said. Fihn noted that Britain announced in March that it will grow its nuclear warhead stockpile by more than 40%.

In a statement last week, Trump asked Biden to "please give [Putin] my warmest regards" and defended his "great and very productive meeting in Helsinki."

MOSCOW — Moscow's mayor on Saturday ordered a week off for some workplaces and imposed restrictions on many businesses to fight coronavirus infections that have more than doubled in the past week. The national coronavirus task force reported 6,701 new confirmed cases in Moscow, compared with 2,936 on June 6. Although Russia was the first country to deploy a coronavirus vaccine, its use has been relatively low; many Russians are reluctant to get vaccinated. President Vladimir Putin on Saturday said 18 million Russians have received the vaccine — about 12% of the population. For the entire pandemic period, the task force has reported nearly 5.2 million infections in the country of about 146 million people, and 126,000 deaths.
