Russian President Vladimir Putin has boarded a helicopter that is taking him to President Bush's ranch in Crawford, which is set to become a scene of the second part of the US-Russian summit. A RIA Novosti correspondent says that after walking down the plane gangway, Putin first headed for the helicopter, but then turned to see the cheering local citizens who had gathered at the airport to welcome the Russian leader. Putin shook hands with many Waco residents. RIA Novosti correspondent reports the Russian President was rather casually dressed ahead of the journey to the ranch, sporting black jeans and a gray T-shirt.
At the request of Ukraine, Turkey detained a Russian-flagged cargo ship as it was carrying grain from the port of Berdyansk. The problem will exacerbate when Recep Erdogan leaves politics.
