But the Trump-Putin summit is widely expected to be hard, starting with what Torstila said as "a long list - nearly an non-ending list - of issues that should be discussed, for instance Syria, Middle East, other regional problems in Ukraine, the European security order" and else. "I think it's ridiculous", he told CBS.

Trump's plane departed Glasgow, Scotland, just after 4 p.m. local time Sunday for the approximately three-hour flight to the Finnish capital, Helsinki.

The White House statement that they put out shortly after the indictment said the Trump campaign specifically is not being accused of anything.

Top Senate Democrats urged Trump in a letter on Saturday to make "Russia's attack on our election" a "top issue" and encouraged him to act on the advice of other federal agencies, saying "you must rely on the expertise and the experts of the State Department Defense Department, CIA and other U.S. government agencies - not wing it on your own". She added that Trump also said: "Don't walk away".

Trump has said he will raise the issue of Russian election meddling, along with Syria, Ukraine, nuclear proliferation and other topics. "But that doesn't mean they are bad", he continued.

"The very fact that we have our heads of state getting together for this kind of conversation is a big, big delivery", Huntsman said. "The Russians take the position - you can like it or not like it - that their constitution forbids them to extradite Russian citizens". He also told CBS that he was going into it with "low expectations".

"Heading to Helsinki, Finland - looking forward to meeting with President Putin tomorrow", Trump posted.

Bolton also said he finds it "hard to believe" that Putin was not aware of an effort by Russian military intelligence officials to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

US President Donald Trump arrived in Helsinki for the first summit with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin after he lashed out at the media for being critical of his Russian policy.

When Trump meets Putin, he will sit down with a disciplined, detail-oriented and experienced Russian leader who has been on the world stage for more than 18 years, in contrast to 18 months in office for Trump.

The Republican firebrand said: "I think it's a good thing to meet".

Trump raised the meddling issue during his first meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg past year.

Trump said in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations".

Trump has been reluctant to criticize Putin over the years and has described him in recent days not as an enemy but as a competitor. Huntsman said the summit must go on because Russian engagement is needed to solve some global issues.

Warner tells NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump "has been completely reluctant to call out Putin as a bad actor".

"I would be much more anxious if we weren't preparing ourselves for some demonstrations", he said.

"These individuals must be brought to the United States so that they can stand trial, and you should demand that Mr. Putin hand them over", the senators wrote.

Already contentious, the Trump-Putin meeting comes just days after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced on Friday the indictment of twelve Russian military officers, charging them with directly taking part in an the alleged effort by the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 US presidential elections. The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off the charts high.
