The Week in Review: June 17-23, 2023 (with an update on Russia)
Modi visits Washington, Blinken returns from Beijing, and more
Hi, Derek here. I hear there have been some festivities in Russia over the past day or so, and since we didn’t have a subscriber roundup last night I thought I might try to unpack what’s been going on now that it looks like the situation may have reached an equilibrium (albeit maybe only a temporary one). Please bear in mind that this is still a fluid situation with a lot of variables and unknowns so it’s likely I’m going to miss a detail here or there and very likely that this update is going to be overtaken by events in relatively short order. I’ll also attach Kendrick’s usual Week in Review summary at the end of this piece.
