Dive In


I'm confident that Moscow, President Putin, understands our collective security guarantees, understands the consequence of attacking a NATO-allied country. It will trigger a response from the whole Alliance. And to underpin that message, we are increasing the NATO presence.

That’s what Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said while announcing a massive expansion in NATO troops that will be in a state of “high readiness.” The number will jump from 40,000 troops to over 300,000 troops. Stoltenberg says “the new military blueprint” will “drastically upgrade” the defences along the east—i.e next to Russia and its allies.

Big Story

The bizarre arrest of Mohammed Zubair

The TLDR: The co-founder of the fact-checking website Alt News was arrested on charges of hurting religious sentiments and promoting enmity—for a 2018 tweet that references an old Hrishikesh Mukherjee movie. It marks a rare escalation against an English-language news site and journalist—who are typically charged but almost never thrown in jail.
