    Russian troops at Izyum, but not for long. With unconfirmed reports that Ukraine has pushed Russia mostly out of its territory north of Kharkiv, we have been speculating where Ukraine would counter next—toward the railhead northeast of Kharkiv in Vovchansk, or the the logistical hub at Kupiansk, where three major rail lines connect. Both those locations would cut off the flow of supplies to the Izyum salient and Russia’s 22 battalion tactical groups (BTGs) in the pocket—the largest concentration of Russian forces anywhere in Ukraine.  Ukraine took a look at both of those critical logistical centers, and then decided to hit the salient directly instead.  xArmy of Ukraine launched a counteroffensive in the Izyum district of the Kharkiv oblast - Kharkiv Military Administration Head https://t.co/mRhRUjMQHF“The hottest point is Izyum direction. ????????

    The daughter of former Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, who was murdered by the communist terrorist group known as the Red Brigades, slammed a performance by a band that glorified the terrorist group at a recent concert. Maria Fida Moro, the eldest daughter of murdered former conservative Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, slammed the band P38, who performed on May 1st at the Arci club in Reggio Emilia, claiming the group’s lyrics were tantamount to incitement to terrorism. “Here it is not a question of freedom of thought but it is incitement to terrorism. My father was against everything in those lyrics,” Ms Moro said, adding that “[o]nly those who have gone through such pain can really understand what it feels like and can understand that even a song can have vulgar and dangerous outcomes,” newspaper Il Giornale reports. Lorenzo Biagi, son of Professor Marco Biagi, who was murdered by the Red Brigades in 2002, also commented on the performance by the band, saying: “There is a limit to everything. Freedom of speech and thought is fine, but this does not...
    WARSAW — Ukraine has acquired “a couple of dozen” main battle tanks from the Czech Republic, according to a senior Ukrainian official, as Central European members of NATO race to empower the Ukrainian military to withstand an expected Russian onslaught in eastern Ukraine. Most NATO allies have prioritized arming Ukraine with defensive weapons such as anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, while some U.S. officials have worried that more advanced weaponry deliveries might provoke Russian retaliation. The Czech government has been involved in that effort since the first week of the war, but Czech officials are more transparent about the provision of more advanced equipment, which Prague regards as essential to the continued defense of Ukraine. “We have given everything, almost everything, that’s in the arsenal of the heavy mechanized land forces,” Czech Deputy Defense Minister Tomas Kopecny told the Washington Examiner. “We have been shipping basically all the equipment that is needed for heavy mechanized brigades [of] the Ukraine armed forces. And the Poles, they have been doing a lot as well.” Kopecny demurred when asked about tank deliveries specifically,...

    More On: cuba Letters to the Editor — July 17, 2021 ‘This is not correct’: Florida Democrat rips AOC over Cuba statement AOC breaks silence on Cuba protests, calls for end to ‘cruel’ embargo The week in whoppers: CNN’s desperation, BLM’s new low and more After stemming historic protests across Cuba by shutting down digital communications this week, the island’s beleaguered Communist government is now beefing up a more traditional way of stifling opposition — citizen spies. The rapid-response brigades, which are made up of civilian snitches — neighbors, co-workers and plainclothes cops loyal to the regime — are out in force after protesters demanding food, medicine and freedom took to the streets beginning July 11, according to dissident bloggers on the island. Cuban journalist Yoani Sanchez reported an increase in the activity of the brigades, and “a heavy police presence” on the streets of many large cities across the country on her “Ventana 14” podcast Friday. “The government lost the street and are using anything they can to stop the protests,” said Ted Henken, a Baruch College...
    Former Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R), who is seeking his old job in next year's elections. The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, Carolyn Fiddler, and Matt Booker, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, David Beard, and Arjun Jaikumar. Leading Off ● ME-Gov, TX-Gov: Two of the Trumpiest names in politics just launched gubernatorial bids in a pair of very different states, raising the age-old question: Will either of them harm Republican chances in November of 2022? Or will they succeed in spite of their extremism and further the GOP's devolution into the party of American authoritarianism? One of the loudest mouths heralding this transformation belongs to former Maine Gov. Paul LePage, who likes to brag he was "Donald Trump before Donald Trump." LePage's penchant for Trump-style racism is best exemplified by comments from 2016, when he blamed the state's drug problems on "guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty" who "come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home" and "half the...
    Legendary film director Jean-Luc Godard is one of the thirty cultural figures who have written a letter demanding French president Emmanuel Macron not extradite seven far-left terrorists at the request of the Italian government. Godard, well-known for many films including Breathless (1960) and Alphaville (1965), is one of the several signatories to a letter addressed to the French president after the arrest of seven Italian far-left extremists accused of violence and murder in the 1970s as part of the Red Brigades terrorist group. The letter, which was published by the left-leaning newspaper Liberation, notes that several of the Red Brigades members were allowed into France by former socialist president Francois Mitterand on the condition that they give up political violence. “Forty years ago, several dozen people came out of hiding, laid down their arms, had their files examined by the highest authorities of the French intelligence, police and justice services: their stay in France was accepted and then formalized by the issuance of residence cards,” the letter complains. “They contributed to national wealth through their work for several decades, some were...

The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment. “Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else.

    ROME (AP) — Cesare Romiti, an industrialist and champion of Italian capitalism who steered automaker Fiat through years of strikes and domestic terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s, died in Rome on Tuesday, Italian state TV said. He was 97. Italian President Sergio Mattarella hailed Romiti as an “important protagonist of a demanding and controversial season of industrial relations and Italian capitalism.” For many years, Romiti served as right-hand aide to Giovanni Agnelli, the jet-setting chieftain of the family dynasty that had founded the automaker in 1900 and would develop it into the nation’s largest private company.

The strike was triggered by Fiat’s plans to fire 14,000 workers. For Romiti, the strike was more than a walkout that had crippled...
