Protests have been instrumental in voicing people’s dissent against Russia’s harsh policies and creating landslide wins in elections for its opponents. Perhaps this is why President Putin is in a state of worry over the state of affairs in the far east. Protests erupted in the Russian city of Khabarovsk following the arrest of Sergei Furgal, governor of the region. The alleged charges pinned on the governor are of 4 murders, allegedly committed in 2004-2005.

The Gaza strip, the 140 square mile stretch of land, located along the Mediterranean coast between Israel and Egypt has endured catastrophic attacks, long-suffering wars, and deleterious situations as people continue to survive under pernicious conditions. According to the 2020 statistics, 45.4% of the population is unemployed with the health care system falling apart at an alarming rate. As if the ongoing wars weren’t enough to vex the habitants, the current ruling group- Hamas has contributed to their misery. Hamas is an Islamist political group that took control over Gaza in 2006.

On August 28, 2020, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vacated the prime ministerial seat as a result of a resurgence of a chronic illness - the same condition that had led him to quit his stint as the PM in 2007 only three days after the new parliament session had begun. In his address to the Japanese populace, he apologized to them for resigning from his position almost a year before his term was supposed to end, but it was a necessary move, in his opinion, as he did not want “poor health to lead to wrong political decisions”.
