The Lead: The Russian Response

Russian missiles struck targeted cities inside Ukraine on Monday, including the capital city of Kyiv. The attacks were targeted toward Ukrainian infrastructure and military command centers. Further explosions were seen across Ukraine this morning, including in Odessa.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the war would escalate if the annexed regions that are now considered part of Russia were not left alone and they were, in fact, not left alone. Ukraine took responsibility for attacking the Kerch bridge inside Crimea over the weekend. 

In response to the Russian attacks, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky picked up the phone to ask the U.S. for more weapons, and President Biden agreed to send "advanced air defense systems." The leaders of the G7 nations are scheduled to hold a virtual meeting today to discuss further responses to these attacks. 

Protests in Bosnia

Thousands are protesting in Bosnia over a contested presidential election that took place on October 2. 

A pro-Russian candidate named Milorad Dodik has claimed victory but his opponents are claiming that it was a rigged election and seeking to stop him from taking office. The opposition leader is Jelena Trivic. Her supporters are demanding a recount of the vote. 

Coincidentally, NATO and the European Union have doubled their presence in the Baltic country. The Western forces say that they have sent more "peacekeepers" in fear that the instability caused by Russia and Ukraine will spread.

U.S. Prepares Military Presence in Haiti

The United States and the United Nations are about to deploy a military mission in Haiti due to what the Wall Street Journal is calling a "rapid deterioration in security that is fueling a humanitarian crisis." 

The Haitian government has called on the U.S. to come in to help put down the protests led by a group called the G9. This is a popular uprising in Haiti that is demanding the resignation of Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry. The U.S. has been hesitant to assist the Prime Minister but that hesitancy may come to an end. 

Haiti has had constant unrest since the mysterious assassination of President Jovenel Moise last year. We broke down nuances of the situation with journalist Dan Cohen on this episode of Redacted on Monday. 

Help Is On The Way

The new Apple Watch crash detection has had some trouble with thrill seekers. The Watch has been known to call emergency services when people are safely strapped into roller coasters. 

That sounds like a good bit of fun but it's not if you're a 911 dispatcher trying to help someone who is on a loopty loop. The Wall Street Journal was able to verify at least six crash detection calls to 911 while people were on rides. 

Apple confirmed that this has happened and says that they are working to improve the service in order to distinguish between a wild ride for fun and an unintended and dangerous one.

Cameraman is trending because Los Angeles Raiders player Devante Adams shoved a cameraman on live TV. He has apologized but that’s probably not the end of this. 

Madonna is trending because of this TikTok from the singer in which she seemingly admits that she’s gay. Okay, but the fluidity of her sexuality has been clear since her 1992 book called Sex.
