Good morning from Moscow. Today is June 20, 2017—and there’s lots of juicy headlines for us to dive into.
The top story of the morning: Australia has halted its air operations in Syria as a “precautionary” measure after Russia suspended its cooperation with the US-led coalition on Monday.
A spokesman for Australia’s defense department said strike operations in Syria have been temporarily put on the barbie.
“Australian Defense Force protection is regularly reviewed in response to a range of potential threats,” the spokesman said.
We salute Australia’s pragmatism. Why entangle yourself in yet another Washingon-led attempt to ignite a global conflict?
