"Armed patriots" secure US borders in Texas

With binoculars in hand, an assault rifle slung over his chest and a Glock pistol on his hip, a man named Will scans the banks of the Rio Grande looking for anyone trying to cross from Mexico into Texas.
Will is a member of the Patriots, a group of heavily armed private citizens who use displays of force to intimidate people attempting to cross the border illegally. Since early summer the Patriots have patrolled an area near Brownsville, Texas.
"If you spot them and shine your light on them, that lets them know that you're there," said the 25-year-old construction worker from Indiana who flew to Texas for a stint with the Patriots. “Nine times out of 10, they're not going to come over.

EU to Avoid Risking Relations with Latin America by Restricting Exports to Russia

MOSCOW, August 12 (RIA Novosti) -The European Union may try to influence Latin American countries to limit agricultural exports to Russia, but is highly unlikely to go beyond public statements, analysts told RIA Novosti.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Financial Times reported that Brussels is planning to hold talks with Brazil, Chile and other Latin American countries to talk them out of exporting food products to Russia to substitute banned European goods.
“The success of these attempts is hard to predict,” the head of the Center for Political Integration at the Institute of Europe, Nikolai Kaveshnikov, said.
