The delegation of USA lawmakers came to Russian Federation ahead of the meeting between presidents Putin and Trump, who are to hold their first serious face-to-face in less than two weeks.

For his part, Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin welcomed the delegation and thanked U.S. ambassador in Russia Jon Huntsman for the "initiative of inter-parliamentary dialogue".

He said the Kremlin was "very satisfied" that the senators were visiting Russian Federation.

Trump and Putin will meet in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, after Trump travels to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, and to the United Kingdom.

Humans simply do not deserve dogs. "We don't deserve dogs", one user stated, while another stated "dogs are the best people". It was a lovely morning but as we were walking down the hill I literally nearly stepped on a ... rattlesnake.

"We're hoping that coming out of the Putin-Trump meeting in Helsinki, it will be the beginning, maybe, of a new day", Shelby added.

Shelby told Lavrov the meeting was arranged "realizing that we have a strained relationship when we could have a better relationship between the USA and Russian Federation".

American "political will" has shifted in a positive manner toward better U.S.

The US senators are due to meet with the upper house of the Russian parliament later Tuesday. Russian state news agencies had reported that the U.S congressmen were hoping for a meeting with Putin, but Peskov said such a meeting was not on his schedule.

Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton said Sunday that he had already spoken to Putin about Crimea, telling CBS's Face the Nation that he told him "we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine".
