REUTERS/Vladimir SoldatkinWASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden’s global energy security adviser said on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is getting close to using natural gas as a political tool if Russia is holding back fuel exports to Europe as it suffers an energy crunch. Still, while a number of factors have led to the European gas crisis, Russia is best placed to come to the aid of Europe, he said. He said Russia can increase upstream production of gas, and should do it quickly through existing pipelines. The pipeline, which Washington opposes because it would circumvent Ukraine, is finished but needs approvals from Germany to start delivering Russian gas under the Baltic Sea to Europe.

“I was clear with President Putin that we could have gone further, but I chose not to do so,” Mr. Biden said at time, after calling the Russian leader. Microsoft said it recently notified more than 600 organizations that they had been the target of about 23,000 attempts to enter their systems. By comparison, the company said it had detected only 20,500 targeted attacks from “all nation-state actors” over the past three years. American officials confirmed that the operation, which they consider routine spying, was underway. But they insisted that if it was successful, it was Microsoft and similar providers of cloud services who bore much of the blame.

The leaders of China and Russia said they won't be at this week's COP26 climate-change summit. China emits around 28% of the world's CO2 emissions, while Russia emits around 5%. Their absence is especially significant given their nations' contributions to global emissions, with China producing an estimated 28% and Russia 5% of global CO2 output. Other world leaders at the summit may find it harder to strike a historic agreement on climate change without Xi and Putin around. China emits nearly 28% of the world's global carbon dioxide emissions, according to Our World in Data, more than any other country.

In Asia, the Red Cross called for urgent help for Papua New Guinea and China's latest outbreak forced the capital Beijing to delay its annual marathon and step up other curbs, less than four months before it hosts the Winter Olympics.

In Western Europe cases were also on the rise, despite higher rates of vaccine uptake than in the continent's east.

Breakdown: COP26 gets an ambitions downgrade

Given current annual emissions of 50 billion tonnes, the heavy lifting has to happen this decade. QUICK WIN ONE: MUCH MORE HELP FOR POORER COUNTRIESOne way to keep significant 2030 emissions cuts alive is for rich countries to stop being tight. The fossil fuel belches out 10 billion tonnes of CO2 a year, a fifth of the planet’s total, according to the IEA. If they don’t, these plants will eat up over half the remaining 500 billion tonnes of carbon budget. The IEA reckons such moves would save 100 billion tonnes of emissions by 2050, 20% of the remaining carbon budget.

With Coercion and Black Boxes, Russia Installs a Digital Iron CurtainRussia’s boldest moves to censor the internet began in the most mundane of ways — with a series of bureaucratic emails and forms. Then the black boxes arrived. The telecom companies had no choice but to step aside as government-approved technicians installed the equipment alongside their own computer systems and servers. The process, underway since 2019, represents the start of perhaps the world’s most ambitious digital censorship effort outside of China. project” and views the web as a threat to his power, the Russian government is attempting to bring the country’s once open and freewheeling internet to heel.

Putin on Thursday slammed cancel culture and supporters of transgender rights. The Russian president suggested that teaching gender fluidity to kids is a "crime against humanity." The Russian leader, whose opponents have often ended up dead or imprisoned, likened "cancel culture" to reverse racism. Cancel culture is "the idea that people too often pile onto others for bad behavior," as defined by Insider digital culture reporter Rachel E. Greenspan. In July, Europe's top human rights court ruled that Russia was violating the European Convention on Human Rights by not legally recognizing same-sex marriages.

The lira dropped as much as 2.9% to a record low of 9.4782 to the dollar, and was the worst performer in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) after the central bank cut rates to 16% from 18%. The cut was seen as an extension of Erdogan’s opposition to high rates, which has seen him replace three central bank governors in the past two years. MSCI’s index of emerging market EM stocks fell 0.5%, while currencies lost 0.1%, as investors stuck to safe havens on fears that growing inflation will stifle economic growth. A fall in oil prices also hurt the rouble, while Russian stocks shed 0.2%.

A demonstrator holds up a sign as he attends a Fridays for Future climate strike in Milan, Italy ahead of Glasgow's COP26 meeting. The need to curb emissions will be high on the agenda of the Rome G20 gathering on Oct. 30-31, seen as a key stepping stone immediately ahead of broader United Nations climate talks, called COP 26, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland. However he added that such intransigence was normal at this stage and any concessions were unlikely to come before G20 climate sherpas meet face-to-face next Thursday and Friday, immediately before their leaders' weekend meeting. Big emitters like China, India and Russia tend to feel pressured and hectored by the Western countries at the G20, he said, making them defensive and reluctant to concede ground. The Rome G20 will also focus on the coronavirus pandemic and how to foster global economic recovery, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who will chair the meeting, said on Wednesday.

Inquam Photos/Octav Ganea via REUTERSMOSCOW, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Russia has reported some COVID-19 infections with a new coronavirus variant believed to be even more contagious than the Delta one, the RIA news agency said on Thursday. It is possible that the AY.4.2 variant will spread widely, RIA quoted the state consumer watchdog's senior researcher Kamil Khafizov as saying. That could cause the rate of new COVID-19 cases, already at record highs in Russia, to rise even further. The new variant could even replace Delta eventually, although the process is likely to be slow, he said.

Though Putin apparently approves of Biden's decision to pull all US troops from Afghanistan, the president has faced fierce, bipartisan criticism in Washington over his handling of the withdraw. Last month, Putin said the US achieved "zero" via the war in Afghanistan and that the conflict resulted in "only tragedies." Putin and Biden met in Geneva, Switzerland, in June to address the contentious dynamic.
