G20/RUSSIA/SANCTIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday [11-29-18] he will probably meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G20 summit in Argentina over the weekend, despite having expressed displeasure with Russian actions against Ukraine…He said he would get a final report during the flight on the tension in the region after Russia seized Ukrainian vessels near Crimea on Sunday…Relations between Washington and Moscow became the most strained since the end of the Cold War during the administration of President Barack Obama who imposed sanctions for Russia’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. U.S. intelligence agencies accused Russia of interfering in the 2016 U.S. election, an allegation Moscow has repeatedly denied. A U.S. special counsel is investigating whether Trump’s election colluded with Moscow, something he denies.”
