“There have been a lot of soldiers from these settlements already. Many Kumyks have been to the war. And some have been killed, and there were a lot of men who refused to fight. Some of them only just returned from the war and now they are being mobilized again. They understand it will be very hard for them if they are sent back. Their mothers, wives, and sisters know perfectly well how that could end. So a conflict is inevitable. The alarm surrounding the mobilization has exacerbated underlying tensions between the Kumyks and the ethnic Avars who also inhabit the area. The Avars and Kumyks in the Babayurt and Khasavyurt districts are almost equal in number. But there are many Avars in the administrations and among the law enforcement and security agencies. Everything is superimposed on an old territorial conflict that has already become a political one. Mobilization is sending people off to war, everyone understands that," Sokolov added. "If the military commission comprises Avars, and the mobilized soldiers are Kumyks, that just raises the tensions.”

“The way that Putin speaks about Ukraine, it is clear that for him this is an existential problem. For him, if Russia doesn't win in Ukraine, there won't be a Russia. Russia is demonstrating that it is ready to use any means at its disposal to achieve its strategic goals. Including nuclear weapons.”

“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.”

“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.”

“They have already been doing a partial mobilisation and only legitimised it now, got more rights to forcibly do it. The 300,000 will have to be armed and supplied somehow, and that's questionable. They will resort to the old Russian way of using the gang-up principle, using quantity [of servicemen], because the quality is problematic.”

“If by mid-October Ukrainian forces can break through the front lines in at least two directions and advance for at least 50km (30 miles), they will deal the Russian forces a heavy blow that will upturn the mobilisation. As a result, the inevitable loss of armoured vehicles and artillery will heavily impede the revitalisation of Russia's military might in occupied areas. But if there is no successful Ukrainian breakthrough, the Russians could restore the combat readiness of many front-line units. It doesn't mean they will be ready to attack, but they could hold the front line.”

“We're coming to a point right now where I think Putin is going to have to revise what his objectives are for this operation. It's pretty clear right now that he's … not going to be able to do what he initially intended to do. The Russians planned for an occupation, not necessarily an invasion, and that has set them back. He's [Vladimir Putin] coming to a decision point. What that decision will be we don't know. But that will largely drive how long this conflict lasts.”

“They cheer-lead on behalf of each other, offering moral and political support to their partner when their interests align. But China and Russia are strategically autonomous actors, whose influence on each other's behaviour is limited and indirect at best. And rather than being propelled into a new orbit of cooperation, the long-term outlook for the Russia-China relationship is not promising. The Xi and Putin relationship is primarily based on the self-interests of two strategically autonomous powers and a fundamental difference is that China is invested in global order. China wishes to play a more dominant role, but it does not wish to demolish that order. Putin, however, is focused on disruptive power and a complete overthrow of the international system. That is why Putin has resorted so readily to military force - in Georgia, Syria, Ukraine and, more covertly, in Iraq, Libya, Mali and the Central African Republic. Russia, but not China, has invested in the value of waging war. He [Putin] and those around him identify Russia's ability and will to wage war as a comparative advantage that few others, apart from the United States, possess.”

“It's not a good time to risk anything to come to the aid of Russia, particularly when Russia is doing so poorly in the war. China has a stake in the outcome of the conflict. If Putin is seen as weak, it will be embarrassing for China. And while Putin is doing so badly in the conflict, Beijing is not going to jump in the same pool of fire with Russia.”

“If we consider the lessons learned from Hanoi, one possible lesson Kim Jong-un may have taken from the experience is that from his perspective, the United States did not take sufficiently seriously the idea that the North was negotiating from a position of strength. North Korea is asserting that its laws make denuclearization negotiations a non-starter. As a result, it is hard to imagine how the United States and North Korea will be able to frame a diplomatic negotiation process around a set of commonly held objectives. A logical course of action would be to further strengthen the North's military program so that its nuclear capabilities would be regarded as undeniable and irreversible. Once North Korea's Kim believes he has adequately achieved those objectives, he might in principle then be ready to return to diplomatic negotiations with the United States, but from an even stronger position than the North's Kim was in when he met with Trump in Hanoi in February of 2019.”

“Within four days, Ukraine nullified four months of success of the Russian army that cost them a huge amount of victims. The Russian Defence Ministry made a decision - that apparently came from the very top - to fully withdraw forces from Kharkiv and to use the available resources to hold on to the positions in Donetsk, and perhaps, the border of Luhansk. The aftertaste is that all of this is but a remake of Russia's retreat from northern Ukraine in April.”

“This is a strategic victory for Ukraine - of far greater significance than the defeat of the Russians in Kyiv in March. The counter-offensive showed the Ukrainians had the ability to impose losses on the Russians. But it's also a demonstration of their skills and combined arms warfare, and bringing the gear and training they've had over the last few months all together to take back an area of land that's far greater than the Russians have taken since April. It's very significant and it demonstrates the Ukrainians' capability with deception. It's an intelligence coup and it's a remarkable display of Russian ineptitude, particularly in the intelligence realm.”

I think the Russians are feeling a growing exposure to Ukrainian attacks in recent days, and also the Europeans are increasing pressure on Russia, so I think the Russian leadership might have decided to find a way to inflict damage [given] this growing assault. We should see [this] as part of a larger geopolitical game. It's part of a tit for tat [situation].

“The US has provided weaponry to Taiwan for many, many decades, but the timing of the new sale had political or public relations value coming amid heightened tensions between Taipei and Beijing. To be frank this sale is relatively small. The bulk of the sale is related to the maintenance of existing radar facilities. China is likely to respond, and has already started with statements. Beijing could also launch more incursions in Taiwan's air defence identification zone, start new military exercises, ban certain Taiwanese products from being imported to China, impose sanctions against US and Taiwanese government officials, or take action against US companies doing business in China. So China always has the options, of using any of those tools. It won't stop this particular weapons sale though.”

“Even [leaders of] Russia did not see it coming [recognizing the independence of two Russia-backed separatist regions in eastern Ukraine] - and then, the North reportedly offered to send its workers to the region. Over the past 20 years, Russia's diplomatic strategies on North Korea and the Korean Peninsula have not changed much. But I believe it is now on the verge of a big shift. In the short run, there seems little incentive for the North to make such decisions, which have drawn international criticism. But in the long term, what it can gain from Russia, one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, is enormous. North Korea is probably expecting Russia's support at the U.N. … It is very likely that Russia will offer it. I have heard from sources in Russia that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may visit Russia this year.”

North Korea perceives the current situation as a new Cold War and has strengthened relations with China and Russia … This means that North Korea's need for U.S. security guarantees and, therefore, reasons for abandoning its nuclear weapons will decrease.”

“This [the violence] was certainly the possible beginning or spark of a Shia-Shia civil war. The violence may have subsided for now, but retributions are to be expected. This violence is indicative of the bitter divisions and deadlock in Iraqi politics. It may be ratcheted down for now, but without a proper solution it will appear again in the future.”

“Chinese leaders have a much greater degree of control over the financial system and the real economy than US policymakers did in 2008. So they have the tools to stave off an acute crisis. They have the tools to stave off financial contagion and a complete collapse in credit flows because they can simply order the banks to lend. They can work outside the legal bankruptcy system to keep everyone liquid, to avoid disorderly chains of default. China could still be looking at years of economic stagnation, which would feel like a recession to many Chinese after decades of strong growth. We could just see an extended period of slow growth, something more like a Japan scenario, a sort of grinding slowdown over many years even absent acute financial distress or panic in the market.”

“What China is experiencing right now is a policy-induced crisis. What I mean by that is, people have been warning about a housing bubble for many years, and for good reason, but the acute stress that the market is under right now is the direct result of very draconian restrictions on lending to developers that were imposed about a year and a half 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.”

“I don't think that to cut the relationship with the Russian civilian population will help and I don't think that this idea will have the required unanimity. I think that we have to review the way that some Russians get a visa, certainly the oligarchs not. We have to be more selective. But I am not in favour of stopping delivering visas to all Russians.”

“The high north is strategically important for Euro-Atlantic security. The shortest path to North America for Russian missiles and bombers would be over the North Pole. This makes NORAD's [North American Aerospace Defense Command] role vital for North America and therefore also for NATO. Beijing and Moscow have pledged to intensify practical cooperation in the Arctic. This forms part of the deepening strategic partnership that challenges our values and our interests. NATO must respond with an increased presence in the far north and investment in new capabilities. Climate change is making the high north more important because the ice is melting and it's becoming more accessible both for economic activity and for military activity.”

“Urban warfare has its own logic, it's harmful both to civilian infrastructure and to people, so even if it isn't a long war, this conflict will be very destructive as we have already seen. The fighting could strengthen Haftar and those close to him. They stand to benefit from western Libya divisions and have a better negotiating position once the dust settles.”

“We have a deal. Under the EU-facilitated Dialogue, Serbia agreed to abolish entry/exit documents for Kosovo ID holders and Kosovo agreed to not introduce them for Serbian ID holders. Kosovo Serbs, as well as all other citizens, will be able to travel freely between Kosovo & Serbia using their ID cards. The EU just received guarantees from PM [Albin] Kurti to this end.”

“The most important thing is about the timing. It's important to know why this war resumed right now. The Addis Ababa government must have known that Tigrayan forces are at their weakest point. The organisation and relaunch of war is important.”

“Sixty-four years ago during the Aug. 23 battle, our soldiers and civilians operated in solidarity and safeguarded Taiwan, so that we have the democratic Taiwan today. That battle to protect our homeland showed the world that no threat of any kind could shake the Taiwanese people's resolve to defend their nation, not in the past, not now, and not in the future. We too will show the world that the people of Taiwan have both the resolve and confidence to safeguard peace, security, freedom and prosperity for ourselves. As Taiwan stands on the front line of authoritarian expansionism we continue to bolster our defence autonomy, and we will also continue to work with the United States on this front.”

“What they [FSB] say is this was a targeted attack against the daughter, not the father. I find it rather strange, all of it. It's a bizarre thing. For a professional security service to send a mother and daughter hit squad - it's a novelty like American SEALS or Israeli intelligence operatives. The culprits miraculously got across the border into Estonia out of reach, and that leaves a lot of question marks.”

“Economic security is an important pillar of national and regional security.

Building on our existing foundation of collaboration, I look forward to our supporting one another, and advancing hand in hand, forging closer relations and creating even deeper cooperation.”
