When Presidents Putin and Trump meet in a few days from now in Hamburg, they should use a narrow window of opportunity to stop the freefall of the bilateral relationship and make progress at least in some of the following areas (as I suggested as early as in December 2016, prior to Trump’s inauguration). First, they should aim to work together against terrorism. Second, Putin and Trump should do their utmost to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. Third, preventing an arms race in cyberspace should become their joint  priority. Fourth, Russia and the United Stated can work together on putting out the various conflagrations in the Middle East. Fifth and last (but not least), the two countries should put an end to their puerile exchange of sanctions and countersanctions, and begin revitalizing their trade, economic, and humanitarian cooperation.
