To be sure, Patreon acknowledged some supporters might flee, but it said it believes the new fee "will help creators earn more money in the long term."

"An agreement on a maritime hotline is desirable for both sides, but I do not believe that we can say that things are generally rosy in the relationship with China," said Yoichi Shimada, a professor of international relations at Fukui Prefectural University. "But China is retaining the upper hand in every aspect of the 'One Belt, One Road' scheme and I believe that bureaucrats at Japan's Foreign Ministry are far too appeasement-oriented," he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday announced a decision to partially withdraw Russian soldiers from Syria following a series of military victories in the conflict-ridden country.
"I have made a decision: most of the Russian military contingent staying in the Syrian Arab Republic is returning home, to Russia," Putin told soldiers stationed at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria.

Last month OPEC, along with other major producers including Russia, agreed to extend their production cuts by nine months to the end of 2018.
