    Carl Bildt “The situation looks increasingly precarious for Russian forces in Lyman as Ukrainian forces are about to cut them off. Another painful defeat for the Russian invasion forces is looming.” 9 hours ago
  • António Guterres
    António Guterres “Any decision to proceed with the annexation of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions of Ukraine would have no legal value and deserves to be condemned. I want to underscore that the so-called referenda were conducted during active armed conflict in areas under Russian occupation and outside Ukraine's legal and constitutional framework. They cannot be called genuine expression of the popular will.” 9 hours ago
  • Pao-Lin Tien
    Pao-Lin Tien “For the US, if inflation does not show signs of cooling in the last few months of 2022, and measures of inflation expectations start to climb, it would force the Federal Reserve to continue with aggressive rate hikes beyond 2022 into the spring of 2023 - in my opinion that's when the economy will tip into a recession. I think a similar situation would apply to other countries as well, if central banks are forced to increase rates aggressively and persistently, either to defend their currency or to tame inflation, then a recession is inevitable.” 18 hours ago

“When you look at Russia, it has the first, second and third highest reserves globally of practically everything. From energy to diamonds, to fresh water, to rare earths and other minerals, it's an extremely rich country. And despite its current estrangement from the West, the Kremlin was far from being geopolitically isolated. Russia has some powerful friends, such as China, India, and Iran, and some increasingly powerful acquaintances, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Brazil, and much of Africa. On balance, therefore, I suspect that Russia will prevail.”
