"We Regret US Decision": Russia After Trump Cancels Talks With Putin

Трамп рассказал как будет реагировать на политику Путина в отношении Украины

President Donald Trump had been planning to meet with Vladimir Putin this week at the G20 Summit in Argentina, but he abruptly canceled on Thursday after departing for Buenos Aires.

But while Russia's position on the incident has not changed since it attacked Ukrainian ships on Sunday, the President's abrupt move came after his longtime former attorney Michael Cohen leveled fresh allegations in court about Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation.

The ongoing probe of Trump's alleged links with Russian Federation inside the USA, together with Russia's strained relations with Ukraine, has made the high-profile scheduled meeting a subject of uncertainty and sensitivity on the U.S. side, ever since Moscow and Washington announced it before Trump's trip to France earlier this year.

The decision appeared to catch the Kremlin by surprise.

Peskov said if the meeting was indeed cancelled, Putin would have "a couple of additional hours" freed up "for useful meetings".

The last-minute move kicked off a global economic meeting expected to be dominated by Trump's seat-of-his-pants diplomacy. "Maybe I won't even have the meeting", he told the Washington Post on Tuesday.

But on Thursday morning, the Kremlin confirmed that Trump and Putin would indeed meet at the G20 on Saturday at noon.

He added that he would get a final report on the Ukraine-Russia tension during the upcoming flight.

Trump was darting from bilateral meetings to summit sessions and back, starting with an early morning breakfast alongside Argentine President Mauricio Macri, the summit's host.

Trump also seems to have told his Twitter followers before he informed the Kremlin the sit-down was canceled. Zakharova reportedly said. "Publicly, we heard just such an explanation, we took note of it".

Mr. Trump made the decision aboard Air Force One after he conferred in person with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chief of Staff John F. Kelly and by phone with National Security Adviser John R. Bolton, who is in Brazil.

But, then again, Trump's meeting with Putin might have generated bad optics for reasons beyond geopolitics.

It all started when the show talked about how Donald Trump is defending himself after Michael Cohen pled guilty for lying to Congress about the timeline for the president's business endeavors in Moscow.

"Witch hunt" is the term the president routinely uses to denigrate Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 campaign and whether or not there was coordination with Trump's campaign, which the president has repeatedly denied. Before the meeting was canceled, former US Ambassador to Ukraine Steven Pifer told CNN it would be a mistake if Trump did not confront Putin over Ukraine because it would lead Putin to view Trump as "weak".

With China, experts said Trump likely wants to see something come out of the meeting. It would show that "he - and not just his administration - wants to hold Russian Federation accountable for its actions".
