Russian President Vladimir V. Putin and US President Donald J. Trump met in Helsinki on July 16, 2018. The meeting was not a dialogue. Putin spoke for an hour, not letting Trump get a word in edgeways and putting Trump on the defensive. No staff or note-takers were present. Neither Putin nor Trump want a record of Putin’s demands – and threats.

Putin: We have secrets that would discredit you and destroy your presidency.
