    A Russian political science professor has claimed the war in Ukraine could simply be a 'rehearsal' for a bigger conflict, allowing Russia's military to test and compare its firepower with that of NATO. Alexei Fenenko, an associate professor at Moscow State University's school of world politics and a research fellow at the Institute of International Security Studies, made the incredible claim yesterday during a talk show on Kremlin-controlled TV channel Russia One. 'I think the war in Ukraine... is a rehearsal for a possible larger conflict in the future. We are testing our weapons against those of NATO, we will find out how much stronger our weapons are than theirs,' the professor declared. 'It could be a good learning experience for future conflicts,' he added, before talk show host Olga Skabeyeva interjected: 'It's a scary experiment.' The outlandish statement is the latest example of the Kremlin's attempts to control the narrative surrounding its invasion of Ukraine, in which Putin's forces have suffered huge losses and are coming under counter-attacks along the eastern front in the Kharkiv, Donetsk and Luhansk regions. ...
    Russian state television propaganda puppets are now claiming that President Vladimir Putin's fledgling "special military operation" in Ukraine is a trial run for a direct confrontation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which Russia would surely lose, as it is in Ukraine. "For us, the war in Ukraine is a rehearsal for a possible bigger conflict in the future," Alexei Fenenko, an associate professor of world politics at Moscow State University, boasted on Russia 1. "We'll test and compare NATO weapons to our own. We'll find out on the battlefield how much stronger our weapons are than theirs. This may be a learning experience for our future conflict."

    (CNN)President Joe Biden is confronting an international crisis of an enormous magnitude. While Biden played a proactive role in trying to deter Russian President Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine, it wasn't enough to stop the largest conventional military attack in Europe since World War II. Russia's full-scale attack on Ukraine -- which comes at a moment when Biden is already struggling domestically with rising inflation, a turbulent stock market and low approval ratings -- poses an immense challenge, both in terms of policy and politics. For Biden, the short-term options are limited. The President, working with US allies to put an economic squeeze on Putin and his inner circle, announced additional sanctions during a press conference on Thursday. "Putin chose this war, and now he and his country will bear the consequences," the President said. Biden also emphasized his commitment to NATO and its principle of collective defense, saying the US will "defend every inch of NATO territory with the full force of American power." But Biden's hands are somewhat tied, given that the President has repeatedly stated he does...
    A CHILLING map reveals the potential hotspots where a global conflict could erupt as it's feared a war between the US and China would be the "most devastating" in history. Taiwan's foreign ministry warned that relations between the offshore island and mainland China have hit a 40-year low and fears are mounting that Beijing could launch a future invasion. 4A map reveals where a future World War could break out 4China has vowed to take Taiwan back by force if necessaryCredit: Reuters Beijing has often perceived Taiwan as a "renegade" state and has repeatedly vowed to take it back by force if necessary. Washington has pursued a strategy of “strategic ambiguity” – where it has persuaded pro-separatist Taiwanese forces not to declare independence while deterring Beijing not to seize the island by force. It’s thought that the formal declaration of independence would be the likely trigger for a potential conflict. Wargames from Beijing have escalated in recent days as it's reported that more than 100 fighter jets have entered Taiwanese airspace in recent days. Taiwanese defense minister Chiu...
    A WAR in space appears “inevitable” as China’s ambition to develop new weapons may escalate into a “devastating” conflict with the US, an expert says. Defense expert Eugene Gholz thinks an “arms race” is already underway as Beijing tries to compete with the US in space. 4Some US officials fear that the weaponization of space is 'inevitable', according to an expert 4A conflict could materialize in space as competition between rivals such as the US and China increasesCredit: DARPA China launched the first part of its space station into orbit in April as it flexes its technological muscles. The government has also revealed ambitions to send astronauts to Mars by 2030. Gholz said investing in space technology is considered an “acceptable form of public chest-thumping”. Meanwhile, many Americans view "technological prowess" outside of defense and national security, according to the expert. He said: "We don’t see it as inherently connected." Gholz believes a "Cold War" in space between Washington and Beijing is "very likely" as China demonstrates its ambition. Most read in The US SunONE OF A...
    Researchers around the world will discuss for a second time the future of a new research direction in the Large Hadron collision near Geneva, which is expected to open up extensive measurements of high-energy neutrinos and new ways to search for dark matter. Dr. Sebastian Trojanovsky of AstroCNT, co-author of the discussed project for a new FLArE experiment, and the Department of Theoretical Physics of the National Center for Atomic Research Heavy elements in the gaseous envelopes of comets. Poles among analysts Astronomers have discovered gaseous iron and nickel in cometary shells, including those outside our planetary system. Among the inventors … See also Scheduled resume The big Hadron collision (LHC) is one of the most anticipated events in the world of physics. In this case, a new research direction will be launched at the LHC, which will include the measurement of high-energy neutrinos and the search for traces of new physics on the axis of the proton collision beam. This unusual method of using Collider was proposed by the authors of...
    In this episode of Intelligence Matters, host Michael Morell speaks with Ambassador William Roebuck, the former Deputy Special Envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, former U.S. ambassador to Bahrain, and current executive vice president of the Arab Gulf States Institute.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told his Israeli counterpart on Monday that a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was best for the future of Israel, the U.S. State Department said.

    STEPANAKERT, Nagorno-Karabakh—Stretched on a gurney, a soldier lies wrapped in gauze. Fifty percent of his body is burned, even inside his throat and lungs, says one of the paramedics in the back of the ambulance, which is making a seven-hour drive from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia’s capital Yerevan. War broke out almost one month ago between Azerbaijan and Armenia over a disputed border territory. The ambulance snuck out of Stepanakert in between air raid sirens, as Azerbaijani shelling of the city picked up again after a six-day break. Only the soldier’s burned lips, a small part of the nose and his burnt eyelashes are showing. His hopes of survival are tied to a beeping respirator and the two paramedics constantly injecting him with morphine and saline solutions. Reporters have been kept away from soldiers and the direct impact of the war in recent days, but plans scrambled by the reinvigorated shelling of Stepanakert lead to The Daily Beast suddenly finding ourselves in the back of this ambulance, being given an accidental glimpse at the human consequences of the war. Kamikaze...
