President Biden, who’s been meeting this week with European allies at a G-7 summit in the U.K. and a NATO summit in Belgium, is set to meet Wednesday in Geneva with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It will be the third time Geneva has hosted U.S. and Russian leaders for talks. The first, in 1955, involved President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Thirty years later, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev met there. Both of those meetings made progress toward defusing tensions. This time, there are hopes the Biden-Putin meeting can produce a modest improvement on the current U.S.-Russia chill over issues like Ukraine, human rights and cyberattacks.
