    by Russell A. Berman   Russia’s invasion not only poses an existential threat to Ukrainian sovereignty, but it also represents a direct challenge to American power and credibility globally. If Vladimir Putin prevails, the promise of the United States to act as a security guarantor through NATO in Europe or on its own anywhere will be in shambles. Moscow is clearly pursuing two goals simultaneously: territorial gains in Ukraine as part of the revanchist ambition to restore the Soviet-era sphere of influence and, more importantly, degrading American strategic prominence, with the goal of driving the United States out of Europe. China and Iran are happy to cheer this on. What is at stake is therefore much more than the legitimacy of Ukrainian independence, as important as that is. We are facing a hot war as part of the global competition between the United States and its strategic opponents. This global competition found its first prominent expression in the 2017 National Security Strategy of the Trump Administration. Thus, the Russian invasion provides an important opportunity to evaluate relevant Trump-era policies...

    The outgoing Finance Minister and new German Chancellor Minister Olaf Scholz delivers a speech during the handing-over ceremony with his successor in the German Federal Ministry of Finances in Berlin, Germany, December 9, 2021.Tobias Schwarz | Reuters Borrowing costs for the German government continued their push higher on Wednesday, with the benchmark 10-year bund yield trading in positive territory for the first time in nearly three years. May 2019 was the last time that German 10-year yields were above zero, when accommodative policy from the European Central Bank pressured interest rates lower. Negative yields meant that investors were effectively paying the German government to lend it money. The ECB is currently behind on its normalization path, compared to the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, but surging inflation and wider moves in the global bond market have now helped to push yields above zero. Euro zone inflation hit a new record high in December, raising more questions about the ECB's monetary policy. The central bank said last month that it would be cutting its monthly asset purchases, but vowed to...

'If you see a tail wagging coming out of the briefing room, you'll know something bad is about to happen.'  At the time, Psaki was being asked about the anticipated White House cat, which is now expected to arrive in Washington in January.  President Joe Biden's new German Shepherd puppy Commander was spotted Friday playing...
    If we were confronted in our gardens by a 6ft 4in airman armed with a pistol, most of us would be tempted to turn and run. But when farmer's wife Evelyn Cardwell spotted a German who was parachuting onto her land after his Junkers 88 was shot down by the crew of a Hurricane in the Second World War, she marched towards him and told him to put his hands up. The story of the woman's incredible bravery in July 1940, which saw her rewarded with an MBE by King George VI, is recounted in book Faces of the Home Front 1939-1945, by historians Neil Storey and Fiona Kay.  With her husband away, Mrs Cardwell, 45, who was only 5ft 8in, had at first tried to call the authorities when she saw the German soldier in the sky above her home in the village of Aldborough, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, but then discovered the phone did not work. Instead, she told one of her farmhands to go on his bicycle and alert the police, whilst she plucked up...

    Anna Sorokin - the fake heiress who swindled banks, hotels and members of New York high society out of $275,000 - has given her first TV interview since her release from prison.  The 30-year-old German citizen, who is currently in ICE custody awaiting possible  deportation back to Europe, was freed in February after serving almost four years behind bars after being convicted of grand larceny and theft of services.  Now, Sorokin is sitting down with ABC's Deborah Roberts for a 20/20 special, which is set to in full on Friday.  In a sneak preview of the interview, the convicted fraudster attempts to portray herself in a softer light, saying she never pretended to be from money and she never meant to be deceptive.   'I never had a fraudulent intent - and I guess that's what should really count,' she claims.  Sorokin, who wore heavy make-up and curled her hair for the interview, further stated: 'I would like to show the world that I'm not this dumb, greedy person that they portrayed me to be.'

    A fascinating new book details how a group of German asylum patients who were instrumental in the modernist art movement 'found themselves on a collision course with the Nazi government'. The Gallery of Miracles and Madness by British author Charlie English tells the story of the mentally ill artists whose work was collected by the psychiatrist Hans Prizehorn in the aftermath of the First World War - only to later be murdered because of Hitler's hateful ideology.  He argues that while exploring art in the context of National Socialism may appear 'counterproductive or distasteful', Hitler's mass murder programmes and his views on art were 'intimately connected' by pseudoscientific theories about race and 'degeneracy'.   Rejected from art school in his youth, Hitler saw the modernist art movement, and psychiatrists' interest in madness, as a threat conjured up by Jews and Bolsheviks to destroy German values.   Later his rage against 'degenerate' art would develop into his first mass-murder programme, killing hundreds of thousands of the mentally ill and disabled people, along with dozens of Prizehorn artists.  A new book tells the story of the mentally ill...
    Angela Merkel is stepping down as German Chancellor today after 16 years in power, ending a term that has redefined not just the country but also the political make-up of Europe and the continent's relations with the rest of the world.  The 67-year-old former scientist will be remembered as Germany's first female Chancellor and its second-longest serving, having survived four American Presidents and five British Prime Ministers - her first being George W Bush and Tony Blair. Her departure marks the end of an era for Germany which saw the country establish itself as the de-facto leader of Europe, cement its status as an economic super-power, and wield considerable influence on the global stage. During that time, Merkel has steered Germany through the 2007 recession and subsequent Greek debt crisis, the 2016 Berlin terror attack, Brexit, Trump's presidency and Covid - winning widespread praise for her pragmatism and competence, despite the EU hamstringing her vaccine drive. But her legacy also bears the stain of the 2015 migrant crisis - during which she threw open Europe's doors to millions of refugees...

The Guipuzcoana Ane Mintegi this Sunday she became the first Spanish tennis player to win the junior tournament at Wimbledon, by beating the German Nastasja schunk in three sets (2-6, 6-4, 6-1). Mintegi based his triumph on the same recipe that has allowed him to make history throughout his time at the All England Club: unwavering solidity from the back of the court and unlimited confidence in his possibilities, even in the worst moments. That allowed her to bounce back from a hesitant start in the first set, in which she bowed quickly to the 17-year-old German just like her. Even playing on the imposing court 1 at Wimbledon did not shake the arm of the young Basque promise. Clinging to her ability from the back of the track (although she also went up to the net when she saw it clearly), she took the second set thanks to her few unforced errors -10 for 18 for the German- and her effectiveness with the first service. , with which he...
