President Joe Biden has eased off a pre-midterm election pledge now that the votes are nearly all in and it looks as though one chamber of Congress will be led by Republicans come January. In remarks to reporters this week, Biden backed away from a pledge to codify abortion within federal law.
“Mr. President, what should Americans expect from Congress as it relates to abortion rights after the midterms?” NBC’s Peter Alexander hollered at Biden during a question-and-answer period following his remarks with Chinese President Xi Jinping during a pre-G20 summit in Indonesia.

krainian authorities on Tuesday morning report a barrage of Russian airstrikes on capital city Kiev and across the country, setting residential buildings ablaze.
The strikes follow what had been days of optimism in Ukraine for one of the country's biggest military successes against Russian – the retaking last week of the southern city of Kherson – in its nearly nine-month invasion.
Among regions where officials reported strikes were Lviv, in the west, and Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city in the northeast, according to the Associated Press.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday that Ukraine has put forward “unrealistic and inadequate” terms for future peace talks.
Lavrov said he spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron at the G20 summit in Bali, where he reiterated accusations that Kyiv “categorically refuses” negotiations with Moscow.
“I reminded him that all the problems are on the Ukrainian side, which categorically refuses any negotiations and puts forward terms that are obviously unrealistic and inadequate,” Lavrov told reporters.
