Visit RT to get the latest news on the relations between Russia and the US, including breaking updates and live broadcasts. In the second half of the 20th century, the United States of America and the Soviet Union were involved in the Cold War, during which news on the two countries was mainly devoted to their rivalry. After the collapse of the USSR, relations between the US and Russia improved, but in recent years the countries’ disagreement on many issues has resulted in new tensions. The US condemned Russia’s actions in Ukraine and was particularly concerned after Crimea reunited with Russia, with many US news media calling it an ‘annexation.’ The US also disapproved of Russia’s attempts to solve the Syrian crisis, as Russia supports the country’s official government and its President Bashar Assad. All this led to the US imposing sanctions on Russia. In 2016, when Donald Trump was elected as US president, Russia was accused of spreading ‘fake news’ and meddling into the election, and Russia-US relations became even more complicated. In this context, all the news on the two countries, especially on meetings between their leaders, US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, is highly anticipated – find the latest updates on all official statements from both the US and Russia on RT and don’t miss the analysis and expert opinion.
