US President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin talk as they make their way to take the "family photo" during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders' summit in the central Vietnamese city of Danang on November 11, 2017.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday that 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted by the Mueller investigation for allegedly conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.

The news comes before President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two presidents are holding a summit in Helsinki today, following a two-day NATO summit where Trump openly criticized long-standing American allies. Hear our show about a potential new world order here.

Regarding Helsinki, journalist Masha Gessen spoke to David Greene on Morning Edition on July 13, and she said it’s hard to make predictions about two people whom she considers “habitual liars”.

Russia has denied that its government interfered with the American election, according to The New York Times.

What will come out of Trump’s meeting with Putin? And what’s the future for U.S.-Russia relations?
