Trump cancels his meeting with Putin over Ukraine

The Kremlin's spokesman said Moscow had no official information on Trump's decision, and that if true, Putin would have some extra time for a useful meeting at the G20 summit.

The Kremlin said on Thursday (Nov 29) that Washington has confirmed a one-on-one meeting between President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at noon on Saturday (Dec 1) at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and on Thursday called Cohen a "weak person" looking for a reduced sentence.

"I'm getting a full report on the plane as to what happened with respect to that and that will determine what I'm going to be doing", Trump said.

Trump canceled the meeting as his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen struck a plea deal which will see him admit lying to Congress about the extent of his discussions with the president over a proposed Trump Tower in Moscow.

The official said that the Kremlin was "trying to save face" with their comment.

Ukraine has also accused Russian Federation of enforcing a de facto blockade on two key Ukrainian ports in the Sea of Azov, which Russian Federation denied, saying shipping delays were due to "bad weather".

Sanders also told reporters on Thursday that Trump's meetings with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and South Korea's Moon Jae-in at the G-20 summit will be "pull asides" rather than formal bilateral meetings. She was expected to arrive late to the summit, and the meeting did not appear on Trump's schedule for Friday.

Hours earlier, Putin said there were "clear signs of a provocation prepared in advance" by Kiev "as a pretext to impose martial law in the country" for domestic political ends.

"Not for Putin, but for Trump". Russian Federation has denied meddling and Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion. It also comes as the USA and Russian Federation relationship has also been under greater strain following the administration's decision to pull out of a decades-old arms treaty with Russian Federation.

Although, Mr Putin's lavish purchases go someway to detailing his financial situation.
