There are fresh calls US President Donald Trump to be impeached following a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital, Helsinki.
Donald Trump has been accused of treasonous behaviour after declaring his support for the Russian leader over his own intelligence services. The 72-year-old has been harshly criticised by people close to him and widely condemned by political commentators from around the globe.
US intelligence agencies say Russia attempted to help Trump get into the White House during the 2016 election. They say the state used cyber attacks and planted fake news stories on social media to sow discord in the United States and encourage people to vote for the Republican candidate.
The show of support comes just one week after 12 Russian intelligence officers were charged over the hacking of emails during the campaign.
