MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday it had deployed a number of its new S-300V4 missile defence systems for combat duty on a disputed chain of islands near Japan, a move that is likely to anger Tokyo. The Russian Defence Ministry’s Zvezda TV station said the mobile air defence system designed to counter ballistic and aerial attacks was on Iturup, one of four islands held by Russia that Japan claims and calls the Northern Territories. “Short-range anti-aircraft missile systems are already on duty on the island of Iturup in Sakhalin Region. Now the air defence ‘heavy artillery’ has arrived. The so-called large air defence system: the S-300V4,” Zvezda said.

It has recorded 40,646 deaths related to COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.

President-elect Joe Biden's nominee for budget chief, Neera Tanden, has deleted tweets critical of Republican senators who are likely going to vote on her appointment, The Daily Beast reported. Since November 1, 2020, Tanden has deleted tweets critical of GOP senators like Mitch McConnell, Joni Ernst, and Susan Collins. The Senate is likely going to be controlled by the Republican Party under the Biden administration, and Tanden may need GOP senators' votes to assume the OMB role. The Senate was controlled by the Republican Party during President Donald Trump's administration, and is likely to remain that way during the Biden presidency. If Tanden is voted in as budget chief, she will be the first woman of color to hold the office.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - There are not the same strong differences between Russia and the OPEC oil group as had been the case in early 2020, a Kremlin spokesman said on Monday, as leading oil producers debate the future of their deal on output cuts. The oil talks initially collapsed in March when Russia and OPEC’s kingpin Saudi Arabia could not agree on volumes of the oil output cuts. The deal was eventually agreed in April. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also said that President Vladimir Putin has no plans to call Saudi Arabia’s leadership before the meeting of the OPEC+ group scheduled for Tuesday.

MOSCOW/CHISINAU (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Monday rebuffed calls by Moldova’s incoming president, Maia Sandu, for Russian troops to withdraw from the breakaway region of Transdniestria, saying it would be seriously destabilising. FILE PHOTO: Maia Sandu, winner of the second round of a presidential election, attends a news conference in Chisinau, Moldova November 16, 2020. Sandu struck a conciliatory tone after her victory but on Monday called for Russian troops in Transdniestria to be removed in favour of civilian monitors under the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). In response, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia expected the authorities in Chisinau to remain constructive. The separatist region fought a brief war with Moldova in 1992 and declared itself an independent state, though it remains unrecognised by any country, including Russia.

DUBAI/LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - OPEC members reached a broad consensus on the need to extend existing oil production cuts for three months from January if their allies in the wider OPEC+ group also support such a move, ministers and delegates said on Monday. OPEC+ had been due to ease existing production cuts by 2 million barrels per day (bpd) from January. “OPEC will probably agree to extend the current production ceiling for the first quarter of 2021, if the non-OPEC countries agree with it in (Tuesday’s) meeting,” an OPEC source said. Adding to the challenge within OPEC+, Moscow’s finances can tolerate lower oil prices than Riyadh’s. [O/R]Oil had a bull run last week triggered by hopes for a COVID-19 virus vaccine and expectations of a rollover in OPEC+ cuts.

DUBAI/LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - OPEC held talks on Monday on whether to extend existing oil cuts for three to four months or lift output gradually from January, as the coronavirus crisis continues to pummel fuel demand. Adding to the challenge within OPEC+, Moscow’s finances can tolerate lower oil prices than Riyadh’s. Oil prices, which were down 0.5% around $48 by 1405 GMT, could fall as much as 10% if OPEC failed to roll over cuts, Deutsche Bank said in a note. Oil had a bull run last week triggered by hopes for a virus vaccine and expectations of a rollover in OPEC+ cuts. OPEC+ data shows a three-month extension of existing cuts would still leave oil inventories in the industrial world in 2021 above their five-year average, a key benchmark monitored by OPEC+, although the overhang would be reduced.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Belarusian security forces detained more than 100 protesters on Sunday at rallies in Minsk the opposition had billed as “the march of neighbours”, a rights group reported and videos on local social media showed. Thousands of protesters met at various locations, mostly in remote residential areas of the capital, and marched through the streets demanding the resignation of President Alexander Lukashenko, a witness said. Tens of thousands of protesters take to the streets in Belarus weekly to demand Lukashenko quits. As many as 60 local rallies took place in Minsk on Sunday, a Belarusian independent news outlet, Nasha Niva, calculated. Videos posted on local social media showed uniformed men, many in helmets, grabbing people in civilian clothes and beating at least one of them.
