Hello. I’m Taylor Wilson and here are 5 things you need to know Monday, September 26, 2022. More protests in Russia today as dissent hits the streets. In addition, a far-right government is coming to Italy and more.

Here are some of the main titles:

  1. The British pound fell to a historic low against the US dollar. The currency has lost more than 5% of its value against the dollar since Friday.
  2. At least six people are dead and 20 injured after a school shooting in central Russia. A pattern is unclear.
  3. And there are only two 3-0 teams in the NFL. The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles are always perfect. The New York Giants at 2-0 could join them with a win tonight.

The United States again warns Russia of the consequences if nuclear weapons were used in Ukraine. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ yesterday: “If Russia crosses this line, there will be catastrophic consequences for Russia. The United States will respond decisively. In private channels, we explained in more detail exactly what that would mean.” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not believe Putin was bluffing when he said last week that using whatever force necessary would be justified.
