Quick Glance: Russia's Escalating Hybrid War Threatens the EU
  • The EU is facing an ever-escalating hybrid war from Russia characterized by a variety of hostile actions. These actions collectively form a comprehensive package of hybrid warfare where boundaries are consistently pushed.

  • Russia has also conducted special operations within the Schengen borders, involving political assassinations and sabotage acts aiming to undermine European security and escalate tensions. It is crucial to closely monitor the situation in Ukraine and act in solidarity against Russian aggression.

Quick Glance: More South Koreans Support Seoul's Own Nuclear Weapons
  • Public support in South Korea for developing its own nuclear arsenal is increasing due to concerns about deepening defense cooperation between North Korea and Russia, as well as the possibility of a second term for Donald Trump.

  • A survey by the Korea Institute for National Unification found that 66% of respondents expressed support for an independent nuclear deterrent, a 6-percentage point increase from the previous year.

  • Calls for discussing the option of South Korea acquiring its own nuclear weapons are growing louder, although it has not been officially adopted as a policy by the government or major parties.

  • Growing concerns over US security guarantees have been fueled by North Korea's advanced weapons programs, its relations with Moscow, and Trump's stance on the US-South Korea alliance.
