Russia
Putin’s Middle East Diplomatic Blitz
BY IGNAT KALININ – TRANSLATION / GAZETA.ru

Working Monday of Vladimir Putin began very early. Judging by the data of open sources, already at five o’clock in the morning his plane left Adler and, 45 minutes later, landed at the airfield of Khmeimim in Syrian Latakia, the main base of the Russian military security services taking part in the civil war in that country on the side and at the invitation of the government of the country and personally President Bashar Assad.

The Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Federation, together with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Bashar Assad, conducted a working review of the Russian contingent in Syria, and then announced the “rout” of the terrorists and the curtailment of an operation that lasted more than two years, and ordered a “large part of the contingent” to prepare to be sent home.

According to General Sergey Surkovkin, who commanded the contingent at the last stage of the operation, during the two years of the war, about 7,000 flights of Russian aircraft and the same number of helicopters were committed, about 32,000 terrorists and slightly less than 400 tanks were destroyed and almost 1,000 settlements were liberated.

Michael Flynn grew up breaking the rules
By CHRIS MERGERIAN / LOS ANGELES TIMES

In his bestselling 2016 book on terrorism, “The Field of Fight,” retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn described growing up “hell-bent on breaking rules for the adrenaline rush and hardwired just enough to not care about the consequences.” On Friday, it became clear that Flynn broke one rule too many.

Flynn wrote in his book that he was something of a hard case, participating in “some serious and unlawful activity” that led to his arrest and a “very unpleasant night” in a state reformatory for boys. His record was expunged after a year of supervised probation, he wrote.

By ALAN TAYLOR / THE ATLANTIC

The famous theme of the 1939 New York World’s Fair was “The World of Tomorrow.” One part of that world, another theme showcased throughout the fair, was “electrification”— the growing use of electricity to light and power not only factories and businesses, but also homes and public spaces.
