The briefings were attended by CIA Director, former US Ambassador to the Russian Federation, William Burns. In relations with the Russian Federation, Burns has always advocated a return to the policy of containment - as during the Cold War.
In addition, according to Time sources, the US goal is to have Putin come away saying,"The Americans are onto us and have us encircled.”
The meeting of U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin will take place in Geneva on June 16. Relevant information was confirmed by the Kremlin and the White House.
