Adding to the pressure on Trump is a new Justice Department indictment issued Friday accusing 12 Russian military intelligence officials of extensive hacking in 2016 that was specifically aimed at discrediting Clinton.

He would regard the summit as a success if there was an agreement to merely reopen severed lines of communications across the board, he said.

The campaign uses headlines taken from the newspaper, including, "Trump calls media the enemy of the people, "Putin shuts down Russia's largest news agency", and "Trump cabinet selects appropriate reporters".

For Russia, it is also a powerful sign that Western efforts to isolate Moscow have failed.

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.

"Trump has maybe a little less room to maneuver if he wants to downplay the issue or pretend that it's not real", said Jeffrey Mankoff, a Russian Federation expert at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

"I don't know what's going to happen, but I can tell you what I'll be asking for and we'll see if something comes of it".

Yesterday, President Trump questioned why President Obama did not do more to stop the 12 Russian nationals indicted on Friday from interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

Indeed, after a week in which Mr. Trump threatened to up-end a summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, anxious European leaders may be relieved if not much comes of the Helsinki meeting.

"I have a big problem with Germany because Germany made a pipeline deal with Russia", Trump told CBS, saying Berlin is going to be paying Russia "billions and billions of dollars a year". "He can't simply raise it, accept Putin's denial and then let him off the hook", Schumer said in a statement.

The US has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can't compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens, and a provision in Russia's constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries.
