According to Wikipedia's list of official Presidential trips by Putin, and list of diplomatic visits to the USA, Putin has visited the USA (while President of Russia) in:

2000 (meeting Clinton)
2001 (State visit with Bush)
2003 (went to Camp David)
2004 (G8)
2005 and 2007 ("working visits", during one of which he met Bush)
2015 (met Obama at the UN)

I'm not sure at which point during that Russia became considered a hostile government to the USA. Is that an official designation? Did it happen recently, if so? Or did some of those other visits also happen while Russia was a hostile government?

(He's visited the UK a similar number of times).
