Hong Kong continues to see a crackdown in dissent with more district councilors being disqualified from office over the way that they answered questions on their oaths of allegiance. In addition, the University of Hong Kong has asked that a statue that has been in place for 24 years that recognizes the Tiananmen Square Massacre be removed by next week. The national security law will continue to drive politically motivated changes in Hong Kong.
As discussed in a brief earlier this week, an exercise has been taking place in the South China Sea. Last weekend the USS Connecticut struck an unknown object while in the region and it is now on its way back to Guam. While reports say that it did not hit another sub, it is a reminder of the tensions in the region and how there is room for miscalculations.
A large explosion hit a gas processing plant in Amur which led to a fire and the plant being shut down. This may impact gas supply to Europe if it is not brought back online soon as it may necessitate the redirection of supply due to existing contracts with China.
