The trend of the day

The American drone shot down yesterday in the Black Sea is fueling tensions between Russia and the West. Moscow has said it wants to recover the wreckage of the drone, opening the door to fear of reverse engineering research. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin calls on Russia to “operate its military aircraft in a safe and professional manner”, while affirming that Washington will continue to fly its own aircraft “wherever international law allows it”.

This incident “is a signal from Vladimir Putin that he is ready to expand the conflict zone”, warns the secretary of the Ukrainian Security Council Oleksiï Danilov. Vladimir Putin intends in any case to strike the West on the plan of the sanctions, and could publish a decree to suspend the conventions on the double taxation with the “unfriendly” countries.
