Summary

While no major breakthroughs were announced following the highly anticipated summit between the presidents of the US and Russia in Switzerland on Wednesday, there was one clear winner to emerge from it: Vladimir Putin.“In the very first minute of the meeting, [President Joe] Biden granted him a gift,” Andrei Soldatov, a Russian journalist and coauthor of several books on Russia, told BuzzFeed News from London. Shedding the pouty look he had worn earlier in the day, the Russian leader appeared pleased with himself and even seemed to relish the media attention.Speaking about the discussions, Putin said there was no animosity or hostility between himself and Biden, calling their meeting “constructive” but their opinions and perspectives “divergent.” He said both sides demonstrated a desire to understand each other and bring their positions closer, but he suggested he hadn’t budged an inch on big issues like human rights in Russia and the war in Ukraine, which his military invaded in 2014 and now controls two large swathes of territory.Biden, speaking at his own press conference later, said he had stressed human rights issues in the meeting. Biden said this means that diplomats and military experts from the two countries will soon meet for a “strategic stability dialogue” to lay the groundwork for the new treaty.Putin also said that Russia and the US agreed each other’s ambassadors “should return to their posts and take up their functions” in the near future.But outside of that, there appeared to be no major breakthroughs from the summit.That’s not surprising.
