After U.S. President Joe Biden met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16, French President Emmanuel Macron said the first EU summit with Putin since January 2014 would be "a dialogue to defend our interests". But after late night talks at their meeting in Brussels, the 27 EU leaders failed to reach an agreement, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said early on Friday. EU summits with Russia ended after Moscow annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in March 2014 and the West imposed sanctions. France and Germany want to be able to work with Russia on combating climate change and to find ways to stabilise relations. The EU on Thursday imposed economic sanctions on Belarus, an ally of Russia that the Kremlin sees as a buffer state between Russia and NATO.

If Trump were indicted and fled, he would go where there's no extradition treaty, legal experts say. The US would be in "uncharted territories" if it sought extradition of Trump, experts say. But the US and Russia have no extradition treaty or formal process through which a wanted person is arrested. Russian officials could agree to entertain Trump's application, which would trigger an international standoff between two countries with an already fraught relationship. If US authorities arrested Trump and won a criminal conviction against him, the former president's political career wouldn't necessarily stop there.

Angela Merkel, Germanys chancellor, speaks with journalists as she departs a EU leaders meeting in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday, June, 25, 2021. LONDON — France and Germany's plans to restart talks with Russia have failed, as a number of other EU leaders remain skeptical about re-engaging with the Kremlin. Now, the German and French leaders would like to follow suit. Speaking on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said the idea was not to offer concessions to Moscow, but simply to have a dialogue. The 27 EU leaders need to unanimously agree on restarting talks with Russia for such a meeting to take place.

"I've been barred from elections," Yashin wrote on Twitter. "The electoral committee declared me extremist for my support of Navalny and barred me from running."

European leaders reacted warily Thursday to a proposal from Germany and France to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, following President Biden’s summit with him last week. Facing skepticism, in particular from countries that border Russia, French President Emmanuel Macron and Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel defended their proposal as necessary diplomacy. “In my opinion, we as the European Union must also seek direct contact with Russia and the Russian president,” Ms. Merkel said in Parliament before flying to Brussels for a meeting with EU leaders. “It is not enough for U.S. President Joe Biden to talk to the Russian president. Some European leaders criticized the proposal, saying it could give the impression that Russian military and destabilization campaigns against its neighbors and the West were being overlooked.

After 'negative spiral', EU seeks new Russia strategy

European Union leaders attend a round table meeting on the second day of a face-to-face EU summit in Brussels, Belgium May 25, 2021. Since Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in 2014 and the EU froze summits with Putin, EU policy has zigzagged between imposing economic sanctions and allowing a new gas pipeline from Russia to Germany to reach completion. EU leaders are now expected to build on that paper to flesh out ways to both call out covert Russian action and work with Moscow on combating climate change. "Out of a confrontational of ideas comes understanding," a senior EU diplomat said in support of the EU strategy, although the envoy doubted a sudden improvement in trust. The EU will on Thursday or Friday publish details of economic sanctions on Belarus, an ally of Russia that the Kremlin sees as a buffer state between Russia and NATO.

Russia said it fired warning shots at the Royal Navy destroyer, which the British government denied. Russia said one of its warships fired warning shots and a warplane dropped bombs in the path of British destroyer Defender on Wednesday to drive it away from waters near the Crimean city of Sevastopol. "If it doesn't help, we may drop bombs and not just in the path but right on target, if colleagues don't get it otherwise." Mikhail Khodaryonok, a retired Russian army colonel who works as a military analyst in Moscow, said the Russian warplane apparently dropped bombs miles away from the British ship. He charged that the British denial that Russia had fired warning shots and dropped bombs to chase the Defender away was an attempt to save face.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. and its allies on Wednesday ramped up the pressure on Russia to allow the continued operation of a critical humanitarian aid route into Syria weeks ahead of a critical deadline. One possibility is that Russia would insist on lifting sanctions on Syria as the price for continuing to permit U.N. aid deliveries. She said that without the humanitarian aid, thousands of children will be denied food, and others will die because health facilities will no longer have supplies. She noted that there used to be four crossings for humanitarian aid into Syria, not just one. "The situation in Syria is the consequence of actions that have been taken by the Assad regime," she said.

His jailing has strained Russia's relations with the West, which has demanded that he be freed and criticised the extremism ruling. Summarising the document, the legal team said in a statement that the ruling was short of examples of extremism by Navalny's organisations. The verdict said Navalny's team aimed to foment social discord and undermine public security and the integrity of the Russian Federation. That allegation was denied by Navalny's allies and his legal team noted on Wednesday that there was no mention of Molotov cocktails in the court ruling. Instead, other pieces of evidence were offered that the legal team questioned in its statement.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s top economic aide, Brian Deese, said on Wednesday that the government needs to play a bigger role in supporting certain technologies and industries.

Deese said the pandemic was a wake-up call to make more products at home.

Viktor Babariko, the former head of Belgazprombank, is being tried on corruption charges that his team says were fabricated to prevent him from standing as a candidate in last August's presidential election.

President Joe Biden showed signs of a strategy based in realism in his meeting with President Vladimir Putin this month. Such an approach is needed for dealing with Russia if Biden wants a relationship that best serves US national interests. Doing so would lead to shedding some of the long-held and widely accepted policies in many Western capitals toward Russia and the NATO alliance. While many NATO leaders may view the organization as much more than a defense alliance, Russian leaders see it primarily as that and a direct threat to their security and interests.
