(23 Oct 2018) Russian President Vladimir Putin says he would be ready to meet with US President Donald Trump when they both visit Paris next month.
Speaking at the start of Tuesday’s meeting with Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton, Putin said it’s important to maintain Russia-U.S. dialogue despite their differences.
Bolton’s visit follows Trump’s statement over the weekend that he intends to pull out of a key nuclear arms pact, the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
Putin told Bolton Russia was puzzled by the unprovoked move that he does not think “could be called friendly.”
Putin also alluded to the US coat of arms, which shows an eagle holding a bundle of 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch with 13 olives in another.
Laughing, Putin asked if the eagle had eaten all the olives.
Putin said his last meeting with Trump in Helsinki in July was useful, adding that he would be open to meet with Trump in France if he agrees.
Bolton responded that Trump would look forward to seeing Putin in Paris on the sideline of events marking 100 years since the armistice ending World War I.

Under Putin's leadership, Russia has scored poorly in Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index and experienced democratic backsliding according to both the Economist Intelligence Unit's Democracy Index and Freedom House's Freedom in the World index (including a record low 20/100 rating in the 2017 Freedom in the World report, a rating not given since the time of the Soviet Union).

Experts do not generally consider Russia to be a democracy, citing the lack of free and fair elections, purges and jailing of opponents, and curtailed press freedom.

Human rights organizations and activists have accused Putin of persecuting political critics and activists, as well as ordering them tortured or assassinated; he has rejected accusations of human rights abuses.

Officials of the United States government have accused him of leading an interference program against Hillary Clinton in support of Donald Trump during the U.S. presidential election in 2016, an allegation which both Trump and Putin have frequently denied and criticized.
