Ukraine HIMARs a gathering of sloppy Russian soldiers. US senators launch a bill to seize Russian assets and give them to Ukraine. Lukashenko claims he has Russian nukes—and a Russian political scientist calls for lobbing them at the US for its own good. Meanwhile, as many as a hundred children may have been on board a capsized boat full of migrants en route to reach Europe, Putin is fomenting chaos in the Balkans to distract the West, and one US Senator has had it with Hungary’s obstruction of Sweden’s NATO bid. In Asia, North Korea is launching missiles while North Koreans starve, and the Myanmar junta is vying with it for the title of world’s most disgusting regime. The Biden Administration is quietly negotiating with Iran (speaking of disgusting regimes), hoping to reach an informal modus vivendi. The mayhem in Khartoum only gets worse; Nigeria goes all-in on free-market reforms, and Iran is shoring up its ties to Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. We’re covering all this and more in today’s Global Eyes.
Our guarantee: When you finish this newsletter, you will be better informed about the world than you would be if you spent that time watching CBS follow Trump’s motorcade to his latest indictment.
A lot better informed.
