The airplane with Russian President Vladimir Putin on board was escorted by Swiss Air Force fighter jets in the sky over Switzerland. Putin thanked Biden for his offer to meet in Geneva.

“I know that you have a long trip, there's a lot of work,” he said. Biden replied that any personal meeting was useful.

During the summit, which is being held at La Grange estate, Putin and Biden are to discuss bilateral relations, international agenda, issues of strategic stability, the settlement of regional conflicts, as well as cooperation in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting is to last for about five hours. Following the talks, the presidents will hold separate press conferences.
It is worthy of note that Vladimir Putin refused a protocol meeting with the Swiss authoritiesthe canton administration made preparations for the meeting with the Russian president, which, as Swiss officials were expecting, was to take place during the Putin-Biden summit on June 16. Nevertheless, Geneva will still respect the wishes of the Russian delegation.
The venue of the summit is guarded by the military. Oerlikon GDF-005 anti-aircraft guns and automatic computerized weapons designed for short-range air defense, were deployed in the area of La Grange estate.
