Word Ukraine was pushing very arduous to take Robotyne, a small village within the gray zone in Zaporzhizhia, however August 24 and failed. Russia made an sudden pushback though most consultants believed Russia must cede the settlement. Word the New York Occasions (as re-reported by Alexander Mercouris beneath) said that the US has principally ordered Ukraine to make a full-bore push to interrupt the Russian land bridge in Crimea earlier than the autumn wet season hits, in 4 to 6 weeks.

I hate to have to debate Prigozhin however I have to level out:

Based mostly on identified details, there isn’t a sturdy purpose for Putin to have had Prigozhin killed, notably as Alexanader Mercouris factors out, throughout the BRICS summit, and in Russia versus Africa, the place his loss of life could possibly be ‘splained away. The very last thing he would need to do is danger turning Prighzhin right into a martyr. And Putin had the means, and was in all probability on the way in which to constructing a case for the mom of all corruption trials Apart from the time in Syria when Prigozhin was freelancing after which the Russian authorities refused to cowl for his rogue motion and his males acquired whacked, I recall rumors of him operating blood diamonds and Russian investigators being killed.

That may have enabled the state to strip Prigozhin of most if not all of his remaining wealth, and of Wagner, and most essential, discredit him.

Now there could possibly be darkish matter, that not directly Prighozihin posed an imminent menace and the Kremlin concluded they may not comprise him quickly sufficient every other means. However that might not be leaking positions even when he had that intel. The US and Ukraine can see that with ISR. Weapons schematics? Weapons samples?

However they may presumably simply arrest him on corruption now even when the costs weren’t perfected.

Having stated that, Trump appeared, relying in your standpoint, very relaxed or low vitality. Headlines like Trump lashes out at Fox News, Bill Barr, Chris Christie in Tucker Carlson interview The Hill are an excessive mischaracterization, even earlier than attending to the truth that Trump’s greatest goal was, predictably, Biden. Possibly Trump thinks he’s a horse in an extended distance race maintaining a cushty tempo within the again stretch.
