Kosovo to establish full diplomatic relations with Israel on Monday; set to be first Muslim majority country to open embassy in Jerusalem : worldnews

It’s a tit-for-tat* move. Israel formally recognized Kosovo as an independent country three months ago:

That was in response to the US-brokered so-called “Serbia-Kosovo-normalization deal” which achieved little to nothing when it comes to normalizing relations between Serbia and Kosovo, but was instead all about Israel.

After signing the normalisation agreement, both Kosovo and Serbia agreed to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Serbia also pledged to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the contested city. Kosovo, meanwhile, said it will set up its Israel mission in Jerusalem and Israel, almost immediately, recognised Kosovo on the day the deal was announced.

* EDIT: Wait, tit-for-tat is not the right word to use. What’s the right word? Is there even one?

Defiant Alexey Navalny vows from jail cell that Russians won’t let Putin “steal our country” : worldnews

He has plenty of power to quell any real uprising or protest.

Actually, he doesn’t. Putin’s wealth is dependent on the nation being somewhat functional so he can extract wealth from its population.

In theory, he could have every city he’s not in nuked, but then who’s going to make stuff for him, or make stuff to trade for other stuff for him? He needs the population.

So sure, he can crush a fair-sized uprising, but there are limits. At some point, the country starts to shut down and his world falls apart. It seems the rich are often very bad at judging just how much they can squeeze from the poor before the pitchforks come out.
