Now this interesting....I wonder if it’ll actually go through or not, and if so, will Ukraine be a topic of discussion. My hunch is that if Putin were to invade, he’d do so after this summit, as to not spoil it. Both sides seem pretty keen on it as of now.
The White House is hammering out the details of an increasingly likely European summit between President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, which could happen as soon as early summer, according to sources familiar with the planning.www.google.com
The summit proposed by Biden it is a pretty cleaver: with the excuse of the "dialog", Biden has obteined 2 goals:
- If Putin invaded, Biden could have said: "I have tried the dialog, but Putin invaded: it is the demonstration of Russian aggressiveness."
- If Putin didn't refuse the dialog, he have to wait months for a summit that will be actually completely useless.
In my opinion, now that Russia has withdrawn the troops, the fact that the summit wheter there is or not, has a little importance: Biden has already achieved its purpose.
