I have my own.
"As is typical at multilateral events, President Trump and the First Lady had a number of informal conversations with world leaders at the dinner last night, including President Putin", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Saturday, according to the Hill.
"The Kremlin is further testing the strength of the global order", Poroshenko said Saturday, alleging that Moscow is waiting to see whether the worldwide community will allow Russia to assert that the Sea of Azov and Black Sea are Russian territorial waters.
Russia is resisting global calls to release three Ukrainian naval ships that its border patrols fired upon and seized in the strait near Russian-annexed Crimea last weekend.
Still, what Putin really wants is to make a deal with Trump.
He repeatedly voiced a belief that Trump sincerely wants to improve ties with Russian Federation but has been prevented from doing so by his political foes. Ukrainian officials say Russia has now imposed a de facto blockade on its two main ports in the Sea of Azov by allowing only ships destined for Russian ports through the strait.
"I hope it will end someday". The Kremlin denies violating the pact.
There was a risk that the Trump-Putin meeting could have worked out badly for both of them.
Merkel said she had also discussed Syria with Putin, "especially in the Idlib region", where a fragile ceasefire has been negotiated between rebels and Syrian army forces backed by Moscow.
More anti-Russian sanctions followed and relations soured further.
When asked where that meeting might happen, Ushakov cited a G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, in June next year as one option.
"We need a strong, unified, unambiguous reaction to Russia's aggressive behavior", Poroshenko said in the interview published by Germany's Funke Media Group. The Kremlin said that Putin would use the time that had been set aside for talks with Trump to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
