Russian President Vladimir Putin is expressing concern about his confidence in arrangements with Donald Trump because of ongoing protests in the United States, Russia's Interfax news agency quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying on Saturday.
U.S. and Russian envoys are due to discuss "mutually agreed topics related to the future of arms control" in Austria next week, the U.S. State Department has said.
