Russia to hold biggest military drills since Cold War

Top Stories - Tue, 08/28/2018 - 15:40

Russia will flex its military muscles and hold the biggest war games since the Cold War era next month, including almost 300,000 troops and 1,000 aircraft, the defence ministry said Tuesday, leading NATO to warn of a "more assertive Russia". Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the exercises would be similar in size to those held in September 1981 by the Soviet authorities, called Zapad-81, or West 81. "This will be something of a repeat of Zapad-81, but in some senses even bigger," Shoigu said in comments reported by Russian news agencies.

US midterms: North Carolina’s gerrymandered congressional map unconstitutional and must be redrawn, judges rule

Top Stories - Tue, 08/28/2018 - 15:38

Federal judges have struck down North Carolina’s Republican-gerrymandered congressional map as illegal for a second time, in a decision that could leave officials in the state scrambling just months before the midterm elections in November. The ruling is the latest development in a case that fair elections advocates say features such drastically gerrymandered districts that it could represent one of the clearest chances for the Supreme Court to clarify the constitutionality of extreme partisan gerrymandering in America in general, and impact congressional maps across the country. North Carolina’s congressional map — created in 2011 following the US census the year before — received its first major blow in 2016, when a federal court deemed it unconstitutional, saying that the map — which essentially locks in 10 Republican districts and three Democratic ones — was racially gerrymandered.
