The summit will happen at the end of a visit to Europe that will see Mr Trump visit Brussels for a NATO meeting, London for talks with Theresa May and the Queen and Scotland for golf.

According to Kommersant, the Presidents of US and Russia, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are going to discuss the situation on the world oil market at the summit in Helsinki. The Russian side is ready that the US leader raises the question about additional increase of oil production in order to lower petrol prices in the US before the election in the US Congress.

As it was reported, D. Trump repeatedly called OPEC to increase oil production in order to lower the prices for hydrocarbons.

Mrs May is among European leaders clamouring for a tough line on Russia in the wake of the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury earlier this year. However Mr Trump, eager to improve relations with Russia despite the federal investigation into his campaign’s links to the country, has been critical of NATO.
