Biden to press Putin on respecting human rights

U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday (May 30) said that he will press Russian President Vladimir Putin to respect human rights when the two leaders meet in June.

During a speech honoring the U.S. holiday Memorial Day, Biden said, “I’m meeting with President Putin in a couple weeks in Geneva making it clear we will not, we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights.”

The White House said on Friday (May 28) it was planning to move ahead with the summit between the two leaders after Microsoft flagged a cyberattack on U.S. government agencies by Nobelium, the group behind last year’s SolarWind hack that originated from Russia.

The June 16 meeting comes amid strained relations over U.S. election interference that Moscow denies, cyberattacks and Ukraine.
