NATO Considers 100 Billion Euro Fund for Military Support to Ukraine: In a move signaling a potential shift in NATO's approach towards Ukraine, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg hinted at a proposal involving the establishment of a 100 billion euro fund. Diplomatic sources revealed that the fund aims to provide substantial military support to Ukraine over the next five years. While Stoltenberg didn't delve into the specifics, he indicated that NATO ministers would deliberate on this proposal, with a final decision anticipated at the July summit in Washington. Moreover, Stoltenberg emphasized NATO's potential role in coordinating the delivery of weapons, which is currently largely undertaken by the United States. Amidst these discussions, Stoltenberg also expressed confidence in Ukraine's eventual NATO membership, suggesting that it's a matter of "when, not if."

Croatian Parliamentary Elections Witness Diverse Candidate Pool: Croatia gears up for parliamentary elections with a diverse array of candidates vying for seats in the Sabor. Data from the State Electoral Commission (DIP) paints a vivid picture of the candidates, with ages ranging from 18 to 95 years old. Notably, the upcoming elections showcase a surge in the age of candidates, averaging at 50.7 years—marking the oldest cohort in the past four electoral cycles. Moreover, the gender distribution among candidates remains skewed, with men constituting 58% compared to 42% women. The electoral landscape is further characterized by the emergence of 165 valid lists for the elections across 10 electoral districts in Croatia and the 11th electoral district for the diaspora. This marks a slight decrease from previous elections, reflecting a dynamic political landscape amidst changing demographics and evolving priorities.
