JOE Biden’s high-stakes meeting with Vladimir Putin erupted in chaos today as US journalists were apparently manhandled by Russian officials.
The president and Putin exchanged a frosty handshake ahead of talks at the luxury La Villa Grange in Geneva.
The leaders were sitting in a library along with delegates as the chaos unfolded.
Journalists were pushed and shoved with one reporter branding the scenes “chaotic”.
Kaitlan Collins, Chief White House correspondent at CNN, said some reporters blocked cameras while the leaders gave their opening remarks.
Some members of the press pool were left outside and didn’t make it into the room.
Biden and Putin are currently locked in negotiations which could last for five hours.
