WASHINGTON — Family members of more than two-dozen Americans who are currently being held hostage or detained abroad are calling on President Joe Biden to ramp up efforts to try to bring them home. The criticism of the administration comes as 17 missionaries from the U.S. and Canada are being held hostage in Haiti after they were recently kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang. The group’s leader has threatened to kill them if their ransom demand for $1 million per hostage is not met. But, eight months later, the families say that nothing has changed. The letter was signed by families whose relatives are either detained or being held hostage in countries like Afghanistan, China, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov/Illustration/File PhotoMOSCOW, Oct 25 (Reuters) - U.S. tech giant Google has paid Russia more than 32 million roubles ($455,079) in fines for failing to delete content Moscow deems illegal, the company and a Russian lawmaker said after talks on Monday. Marco Pancini, YouTube director for interacting with state authorities in EMEA, said in a blog post that Google had paid all enforced fines on time. These stood at 32.5 million roubles for this year, communications regulator Roskomnadzor said last week. In 2020, Google's compliance with requests to delete content was 96.2%, Pancini said, and in the first half of this year, it removed over 489,000 videos, but Russia said too much banned content still remained available. Piskarev said Pancini had cited technical difficulties for Google's failure to remove all the banned content.

Moving forward in the process of offering NATO membership to Ukraine or Georgia risks igniting a major NATO-Russia conflict. Should an attack follow Ukraine or Georgia's formal acceptance into the alliance, NATO's Article 5 would legally require the United States to militarily intervene. The United States established the Monroe Doctrine in the early 1800s, claiming that any intervention by European powers in the western hemisphere would be viewed as an act hostile to the United States. By the end of the 19th century, the United States had successfully driven out all other great powers and established itself as the regional hegemon of the New World. Such an effort would start by taking Ukrainian and Georgian NATO membership off the table.

Moldova's contract with Gazprom expired at the end of September. A source familiar with the talks told Reuters that Russia asked Moldova to repay its outstanding debt for gas supplies totalling some $700 million and that Moldova had asked for Gazprom to cut the new gas price in half. "There are risks of full stoppage of Russian gas supplies to Moldova after (Nov. 1)," the first source told Reuters. Gavrilita had earlier said the pressure in the gas transportation system had reached a critically low level and that Moldova Gas, 51% owned by Gazprom, had not supplied the required volume of gas.
