Biden plans to confront Putin on everything from Moscow's cyberattacks to its election interference efforts and human rights abuses.

President Joe Biden arrived in Geneva Tuesday for a high-pressure meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. That's after a week-long series of confidence-building meetings between the US leader and his European allies.
