  • Igor Dodon
    Igor Dodon “We are categorically opposed to this referendum. We are not saying 'no' to talks with the EU and we are not opposed to the EU. We oppose Sandu using it as an instrument for her own interests and those of her party. We are therefore asking voters during the campaign not to take part in the referendum.” 7 hours ago

    Ben Hodges “Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.” 9 hours ago

“From an objective perspective, the US has no ability to change China's political system, and Sullivan's [Jake Sullivan] remarks also showed that the US government has given up on the fantasy of changing Chinese system through keeping in touch with the country or suppressing it. But US political elites, especially in the Biden administration, have aspired to change China's political system for a long time. Then they gradually found out that it's a mission impossible whether by means of pressure from the Trump administration or a cooperative rivalry strategy from the Biden administration. The problem is not that the US government does not want to change China, but the US does not have the ability to do that, and would only hit a bumpy road if not working with China.”

Deputy director of the Center for US Studies at Fudan University in Shanghai
