President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin emerged from their summit with the Russian leader deeming it “constructive” and the U.S. president calling it “positive.” But back-to-back news conferences made clear that the two sides remain at odds over human rights, cyberattacks and Ukraine. Biden said he raised the case of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny as well as two “wrongly imprisoned” Americans held in Russia. “The bottom line is I told President Putin that we need to have some basic rules of the road that we can all abide by,” Biden told reporters after his first face-to-face meeting as president with Putin.
