TO and Russia are in a missile race, and Poland may have just raised the stakes.

The Polish government announced Tuesday that it would buy the U.S. Army's Patriot air-and-missile defense system, a move widely seen as a response to Moscow's upcoming deployment of nuclear-capable missiles to Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea.

Five other NATO countries already deploy the Patriot system — which can knock down missiles, drones, and small aircraft — but none are as far to the east as Poland, nor so close to Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave which is already bristling with missile systems and other advanced Russian military hardware.............
Russia’s Trump, Zhirinovsky, wants to Build a Wall, Ban Muslims, and Nuke the White House

Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the far-right Russian pol loves the idea of building walls and banning Muslims. He says he’s fighting corruption, but excuses Trump’s shady Russian connections

Vladimir Zhirinovsky recently boasted of taking a DNA test to prove that he’s related to Donald Trump. The 70-year-old Russian right-wing nationalist and populist who founded the (not very) Liberal Democratic Party often is compared to the 70-year-old American populist now slightly ahead in the contest to win presidency of the United States. Zhirinovsky is called a “Russian Trump” and Trump, at least in Russia, is labeled an “American Zhirinovsky.”

What similarities do Russians see in them It could be their brash, fiery rhetoric, the roughness of their style, the way their faces distort with anger, or, as one Russian pointed out, the way that spittle tends to build on the corners of their mouths.

Certainly they share an ability to feed the public with fury, and change their message as they find convenient. Depending on what tune he needed at any given moment in the political arena, Zhirinovsky can act as the Kremlin’s clown or as a calm, even cold, opposition leader.

No grounds for Russian criticism of NATO's support for Ukraine, - Stoltenberg

The Russian Federation has no reasons to criticize the North Atlantic Treaty Organization for its support to Ukraine.
Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg said at news conference in Tbilisi on Sept. 7, Censor.NET reports citing Europeiska Pravda.

According to Stoltenberg, Ukraine is an independent state and it has a legal right to ask for support and to receive it. So there are no grounds for criticism against NATO for supporting the democratic government, the secretary-general said.

The diplomat reminded that NATO provided support to Ukraine through several trust funds in logistics, management, and military sector reforms areas.

Stoltenberg said that the Ukraine-NATO Commission had been set up as a platform for practical and political cooperation between the two parties. The secretary-general noted that NATO summit in Warsaw this summer was a key event for setting NATO's policy towards Russia, which is military reinforcement, but also includes a political dialogue.

According to Stoltenberg, military reinforcement and dialogue can go together - the reinforcement is needed to conduct this political talk with Russia. Russia remains NATO's largest neighbor, so the Alliance needs this dialogue to prevent incidents like the one in Turkey, Jens Stoltenberg stressed. In Ukrainian/український

Trump said he would not be influenced by Putin's praise of him as "brilliant" (Putin denied a report he used the phrase) on a policy level, but also indicated he would repay it in kind on a personal level.
