Why Russia wants to send the U.S ‘uncomfortable signals’



Russia is sending strong signals it won’t be a push over, in the lead up to an historic meeting between Russia President Vladimir Putin and the new US President Joe Biden.

Russia’s foreign minister says the country wants to send the US uncomfortable signals ahead of the meeting in Geneva next month.

Russia has announced plans to enhance its military presence at its western border and is prepared to respond to Biden’s remarks on Sunday in which he said he would call on Putin to respect human rights during their meeting.

Russia claims it has been more flexible than the US over the agenda for the Geneva summit.

U.S President promotes rights of Americans in the lead up to Putin meeting

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has promoted the rights of Americans to vote freely, fairly and conveniently during his Memorial Day address in Arlington.

It follows Texas Democrats staging a walkout to block a sweeping election overhaul bill.

Republicans are moving, to create new voter restrictions, that many say will negatively impact people of colour, low-income earners and people with disabilities.

Changes include limits to early voting, bans on temporary outdoor polling venues and 24-hour early voting.

This form of voting was used back in the 2020 general election in Texas’s Harris County, which Biden won.

Extremism top concern for U.S. voters ahead of election



Worries over political extremism and threats to democracy have surged to the forefront as the primary concern for U.S. voters, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown in the upcoming November election.

The three-day Reuters Ipsos poll, which concluded on Sunday, found that 21% of respondents identified “political extremism or threats to democracy” as the nation’s most pressing issue, narrowly edging out concerns about the economy and immigration.

President Joe Biden appears to hold a slight advantage over his predecessor, Donald Trump, in addressing this issue, with 34% of respondents believing Biden has a better approach compared to 31% for Trump.

The findings underscore the deeply polarized political landscape in America, with Democrats prioritizing extremism as the top issue, while Republicans overwhelmingly focus on immigration.

The poll also highlights the pivotal role of independent voters, with nearly a third citing extremism as their primary concern, followed closely by immigration and the economy.

This suggests that the handling of extremism could significantly influence voter behavior in the upcoming election.

The rise of extremism as a top concern comes amid ongoing political turmoil, with Trump continuing to challenge the legitimacy of U.S. institutions and perpetuate false claims of election fraud.

His rhetoric has not only fueled division but also incited violence, as seen in the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.
