It’s on….Russian President Vladimir Putin has just touched down in Geneva where he’s about to meet with President Biden in a high-stakes summit.

It’s not the first time the two men have met but it is the first time Biden has sat down with Putin in his capacity as the 46th president of the United States.
The two leaders are meeting this morning in Geneva behind closed doors and then afterward, Biden is set to hold a solo press conference detailing their five hour meeting.
Hopefully Biden won’t have to engage in hand-to-hand combat with the Russian leader who has a black belt in judo. A U.S. Marine black belt judged Putin’s moves.
“The 66-year-old man actually does seem rather spry and capable. Moreover, despite some rust on the joints, he genuinely does appear to know what he’s doing on those mats.”
Tensions between the two nations are running high and Biden is expected to challenge Putin on a number of critical issues. Those issues include cyber attacks, nuclear stability, climate change, Ukrainian sovereignty and Russian interference in U.S. elections.
