ITALY

  • Violent protests erupted in more than 15 cities across Italy after the government announced new measures to rein in a second wave of COVID-19 infections.  This time, reactions were far from measured and it appeared not everyone in the country was ready to adhere to the government’s guidelines and rules. Far-right groups and organized crime also appear to be behind the recent clashes.

EURASIA:

  • Azerbaijan’s ties with Russia, already strained by conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, face further pressure from the launch -later this year- of a gas pipeline (the $40 billion Southern Gas Corridor will draw from Azerbaijan’s giant Shah Deniz II field in the Caspian Sea) that is poised to squeeze Moscow’s diminished gas sales to Europe and Turkey. Currently Russia’s economy suffers because of the impact on oil and gas demand of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Russia and China helped pave the way with disinformation campaigns.
