Telegraph:Sweden sends leaflets to 5m homes on how to prepare for war with Russia

The neutral country has begun to reverse deep post war defence cuts and incursions by Russian planes and submarines have sparked intense public debate over whether to join Nato.

All of society needs to be prepared for conflict, not just the military. We haven’t been using words such as total defence or high alert for 25-30 years or more. So the knowledge among citizens is very low,” said Christina Andersson, leader of the project at the Swedish civil contingencies agency.

RT:Russia eyeing private military companies market with new legalization bid

Russian MPs are expected within weeks to submit a new draft law regulating private military companies. There is a global market for such services, and some argue Russia is missing out by keeping citizens in a legal minefield.

Sports

LATimes:After last night’s locker room brouhaha, Chris Paul will probably never be cheered at Staples Center again

FTA:Griffin marched off the court screaming and exhorting the crowd before throwing his jersey into the stands in a display of emotion unmatched in his Clippers career.

But it wasn’t done yet. After the game, sources said Paul led a group of four Rockets — including James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green — through a back door into the Clippers locker room in apparent pursuit of Griffin and Austin Rivers, who didn’t play but was talking from the bench.

Millionaire gang fight.
