oil and food supply. the fbi blaming russian criminal gangs. putin denying any involvement in an nbc news exclusive. >> translator: where is the evidence? where is proof? >> reporter: president biden promising to put russia's leader on notice. the president setting expectations low but holding out hope that the high-stakes sitdown could ease escalating tensions. in urkt washington, alice barr, nbc news. more on that exclusive interview with president putin. nbc's keir simmons asked putin about the infamous poisoning and arrest of a political rival. >> did you order alexei navalny's assassination? >> translator: of course not. we don't have this kind of habit of assassinating anybody. the people who have mentioned, yes, they were convicted for violating their status, having been previously convicted, given suspended sentences which were essentially a warning not to
5:37 pm
violate the russian laws. and they completely ignored the requirements of the law. the court went on and turned the conviction into real jail time. >> putin does admit to arresting other members of navalny's political group. in that interview he also addresses the black lives matter campaign here in the u.s. and allegations of election interference and cyberattacks. joining us now is our political appear list, larry gerston. biden and putin have known each other for years. does this help or hurt the new chapter in their relationship? >> it is going to be, as you say, a new chapter for the simple reason that the way they knew each other before, biden was a u.s. senator and then vice president. you know what, as president he has a whole lot more gravitas than he did in either of those two positions. and so biden will be talking to him from a different position and putin will have to come to terms with that. another thing to think about is that these two, biden and trump, are complete polar opposites.
5:38 pm
trump totally trusted putin. he said as a matter of fact he believed putin over 17 agencies who said in fact the russians interfered with the 2016 election. biden doesn't trust putin, he knows him well. yes, it's going to be a very different situation. >> they're going to meet here, larry, and there will be no joint news conference following their meeting. why the secrecy or is this just political gamesmanship? >> i don't think it's gamesmanship at all. as a matter of fact, what president biden is trying to say is he doesn't want to give putin the same stage, the same opportunity to speak when he believes that much of what putin says won't be the truth. he doesn't want to get into a tit for tat game with him, he just wants to tell his side of the story. he doesn't want to feel that in any way putin's comments, which are likely to be disputed, are going to be set up on the same kind of stage as president trump. president biden, excuse me. >> larry, what can really be
5:39 pm
done here, any tangible results? or is this just a meeting that floats off into the ether? >> this is a getting to know you again, part 2, if you will, session. there will not be a lot. of course the president is going to go after him for things like cyber crime and ransomware, election meddling, georgia. what russia has done in georgia. i think the only thing that might come out of this of any kind of substance could be a prisoner exchange.
