  • 2 people were killed on Tuesday when what the Polish President described as “most probably” a Russian-made projectile landed in a Polish village. Officially the US and other NATO states are saying that they cannot confirm whether or not this was a Russian missile. The Polish government has apparently invoked Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which calls for consultations within the alliance and is substantially less escalatory than invoking the Article 5 provision for collective self-defense
  • US President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping met this tuesday for roughly 3 hours. The summaries of the meetings released by the two sides afterwards revealed on-going divisions over key issues like Taiwan, human rights, technology and trade.
  • The United Nations estimates that the global population crossed the 8 billion threshold on Tuesday.
