Putin-Prigozhin meeting, NATO Lithuania, Sweden-Turkey and NATO-EU

Putin reinforces his deep vulnerability with Yevgeny Prigozhin meeting. It says much that Putin entertained the man behind the coup attempt targeting his regime just five days after said coup attempt.

Unlike many others, NATO summit host Lithuania is an ideal U.S. ally. The Baltic state spends significantly more than 2%-of-GDP on defense and is a stalwart against threats from both China and Russia.

Sweden belongs in NATO, Turkey doesn't belong in the European Union. The support of Turkey for Sweden's NATO membership bid is welcome news.
