Helsinki Police Department report from 13: 13:
President Putin’s motorcade moves from Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to the center of Helsinki. Short overlap of traffic on the tuple’s route is expected.
It is expected that the meeting between Putin and Trump will be devoted to issues of bilateral relations, as well as a number of key topics of international politics. Among the most important are Ukraine and Syria. Political scientists in Finland say that this is "perhaps the most difficult meeting to predict." At the same time, Finnish President Sauli Niinistö noted earlier that he hopes that the meeting between Putin and Trump in the Finnish capital will lead to a positive result.
