The death of George Floyd, a black man, at the hands of police in Minneapolis sparked the worst unrest across America for decades. Floyd’s cry that he couldn’t breathe to the officer kneeling on his neck reverberated around the world. The incident led to a surge in global support for Black Lives Matter and a reckoning with the legacy of slavery and colonialism. Toppling statues of white men was de rigueur for woke activists in many cities. America endured a summer of protest; notable flashpoints included Kenosha and Portland.

在明尼阿波利斯,黑人喬治·弗洛伊德死於警察之手,這引發了美國幾十年來最嚴重的騷亂。弗洛伊德對跪壓他脖子上的警察求饒,他窒息般的呼救聲傳遍了全球。這一事件導致全球支持“黑人的命也是命”的呼聲高漲,人們開始反思奴隸制和殖民主義的遺留問題。在許多城市,推翻白人男性雕像是覺醒的活動人士的一貫做法。美國的抗議活動持續了一整個夏天;著名的抗議地點包括基諾沙市和波特蘭市。

Western intelligence fingered the Kremlin for trying to assassinate Alexei Navalny, Russia’s main opposition leader. Poisoned by novichok, a nerve agent, Mr Navalny fell ill on a plane and was airlifted to Germany for treatment. He eventually recovered and later called on the eu to impose sanctions on high-ranking Russian oligarchs.

西方情報機構指責克里姆林宮試圖暗殺俄羅斯主要反對派領導人阿列克謝·納瓦爾尼(Alexei Navalny)。納瓦爾尼在飛機上感染了神經毒劑諾維喬克(novichok),隨後被送往德國接受治療。他最終康復,並呼籲歐盟對俄羅斯高級寡頭實施制裁。

Israel’s third election in less than a year led to a power-sharing agreement, with Binyamin Netanyahu remaining as prime minister until November 2021. Israel also signed peace deals, brokered by the Trump administration, with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan. Other Arab countries may follow.

以色列在不到一年的時間裏舉行了第三次選舉,雙方達成了權力分享協議,本雅明·內塔尼亞胡將繼續擔任總理,直到2021年11月。在特朗普政府的斡旋下,以色列還與阿拉伯聯合酋長國、巴林、摩洛哥和蘇丹簽署了和平協議。其他阿拉伯國家可能會效仿。
