Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, according to the State Department.

In a Friday press release, the department announced that Pompeo would leave on Sunday for a two-day trip to Moscow and Sochi, where the State secretary will meet with Putin and Russian Foreign minister Sergey Lavrov.

The statement says they will discuss “the full range of bilateral and multilateral challenges.”

It’s unclear whether Pompeo will take a firmer tone against Russia’s election meddling than President Donald Trump, who said he didn’t even discuss meddling during his hour-long phone call with Putin earlier this month.
