​Nagorno-Karabakh Is Moscow’s Latest Frozen Conflict

2650

The exact chain of command in Nagorno-Karabakh is deliberately opaque. The leader of the Russian peacekeeping mission, Lt. Gen. Rustam Muradov, meets frequently with Azerbaijani and Armenian leaders to hear petitions about what should happen in the statelet. But because Armenian forces were forced to withdraw from the area—while Azerbaijan’s troops remain behind the new line of contact—Russia now has complete military control of Nagorno-Karabakh.

​With Turkey, the Problem Is NATO Membership, Not Armenia. Removing them from the alliance would actually serve a useful purpose

3737

Next year, forget the Armenian genocide. Let’s have a serious debate about kicking Turkey out of NATO, coordinating with Europe in response to Ankara’s destructive behavior throughout the Eastern Mediterranean and Mideast, and applying Magnitsky sanctions against Erdoğan and his loyal apparatchiks, who have destroyed Turkish democracy. Doing so would serve a useful purpose — and keep the same lobbyists and PR flacks equally busy and well paid.

Biologists are still studying images to figure out what kind of dolphins they are. At “first evaluation” they look like striped dolphins, Mazzariol said, which aren’t usually seen in the Northern Adriatic near Venice.

​Azerbaijan Sold 500 Tons of Weapons To the Repressive Regime of Congo

​Nagorno-Karabakh: This Could Be How the Next Caucasus War Begins

6577

Simply put, too often, the United States plays checkers while other countries play chess. It is time for Washington, Paris, and others in the international community to think several steps ahead and anticipate the next war in the Caucasus if only to prevent it. Diplomats may value quiet, but they should be wary when past precedent and current evidence suggests quiet is not the foundation for peace, but rather the calm before an even greater storm.

​Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in Australian educational settings: a prospective cohort study

1609

School closures have occurred globally during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, empiric data on transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) among children and in educational settings are scarce.

We examined SARS-CoV-2 transmission among children and staff in schools and early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW).
