Russia: October 25, 2001

: The United States has stopped anti-ballistic missile tests that would have violated the ABM treaty with Russia. This was apparently done because negotiations with Russia over a new nuclear weapons and anti-missile treaty are planned. This is another side effect of the improved relations from the War on Terrorism. In Chechnya, the beheaded bodies of two soldiers were found. Elsewhere in Chechnya, soldiers killed 17 rebels in the course of 20 different operations. Twice in the last year (February and April), "terrorists" have tried to enter Russian nuclear facilities. The intruders were arrested, but the government reported no additional details.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
