    Looks like Sweden and Finland are almost certainly joining NATO. Putin may see this as a threat and start expanding his attacks into Europe.

    ^^Russia will stop supplying Finland with electricity as of midnight. Officially the Russians have some reason in the lines of 'the neighbors are behind on their payments' but obviously it's because of the NATO membership request.

    tbh I didn't even know Russia was supplying Finland w/ electricity. Russia was taking care of 10% of Finland's electricity needs (it was more before the war in Ukraine)

    EDIT : I looked into it some more. Nord Pole, which arranges electricity supply exchanges between 16 European countries, has indeed stopped paying Russia for the electricity supplied to Finland on May 6. This pan Euopean company has not commented on it yet. Sanctions? Power play? Lobbyism? Opportunism? IDK your guess is as good as mine

    The Turkish President said he doesn't look too favourably on the two joining, Finlands not a big issue but it's Sweden that Turkey doesn't want in NATO. Will probably ask for money or something but this was coming as Turkey and Sweden have a rift over Sweden's support for the Kurds in N.Syria.

    The Russians pull back from Kharkiv. The special operation really isn't going well after all. Most likely will solely focus on the Donbass and try to negotiate to save face. There were many reports of Ukrainian counter attacks failing but the Russians just can't advance either.

    As someone who civ 6 on Immortal Mode I think I could have pulled this off better than Putin. But we'll see

    You prefer poverty and fascism to wealth and democracy?

    You need to think these things through.
