According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the Russian and US presidents may meet each other during the upcoming July 16 summit in Helsinki.
Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump can discuss cybercrime and ways of countering terrorism in Syria during the upcoming July 16 summit in Helsinki, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for New Challenges and Threats Ilya Rogachev told TASS.

“Yes, probably that will be discussed as a bilateral relations issue rather than hacking in general,” he said when asked whether cybercrime will be discussed at the upcoming summit. “As far as I understand, counterterrorism efforts will likewise be discussed precisely with reference to the United States’ actions in Syria.”

This comes as the United States believe that Russia may interfered in the election through the unlawful use of information and communications technologies.

However, Moscow has repeatedly denied the accusations of trying to influence the US presidential election.
