Putin ahead of the summit renewed an offer to swap prisoners in "matters of a humanitarian nature", after Biden said US citizens detained in Russia would be on the agenda.

The US and Russian ambassadors will return to their diplomatic posts and take up their functions, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday in Geneva, Switzerland. 

The question of when that would happen is a “purely technical one,” he said.

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov will return to Washington by the end of June. This was announced by the Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Ryabkov.

"Russian Ambassador Antonov will return to Washington before the end of June," he said.
