Moldova🇲🇩 is strongly determined to stay part of the free world. We belong in the #EU. We are a #European country, with a European language, a European history, and a European political system. EU’s values are our values. We are part of #Europe. 🇲🇩🇪🇺 Image
Like never before, the 🇲🇩govt’s commitment to reforming institutions is unquestionable. But building independent, strong institutions takes time. I’m asking #EU to help us tackle the big corruption, recover the stolen money & bring the corrupt fugitives to justice. Image
Despite our achievements, we have been hit hard by a succession of crises culminating with the war against #Ukraine🇺🇦.

BLOG: The #EU's scramble to get off #Russian #FossilFuels highlights the perils of a fossil-based economy: fossil gas hardest to eliminate. We debunk the claim that #gas is a ‘bridge fuel’ & show global gas consumption must rapidly decline. 🧵/2 Image
Despite the clear message that gas demand shld already be in rapid decline, its use in many economies continues to increase. Since 2015, a total of 14 G20 countries have seen an upward trend in gas’s share of primary energy supply, w particularly steep rises in North America. /3 Image
Fossil #gas production is largely concentrated in two countries - #Russia and the #US - who together produce about 40% of dry natural gas. Some countries like the US and Australia have increased their production in the last decade. /4 Image

Wenn wir wollen, dass die #Türkei mitmacht bei Sanktionen der #NATO, #G7 u. #EU gg. RF, dann müssen wir dem Land mit Wirtschaftshilfen unter die Arme greifen.Die TR hat eine Abhängigkeit im Tourismus und auch beim Verkauf

Der ist eigentlich unglaublich. 👇👇👇

Thread on the risks of Europ's increased dependence on US LNG
1- Among the pillars of energy security:
a- Diversification of energy sources
b- Diversification of energy imports
c- Low volatility of energy prices
d- Affordability and reliability
#Russia #Natgas #LNG #EU
2- Answer the following:
a- Who benefited the most from stopping Nordstearm 2?
b- Who was the Marketing-in-Cheif of US LNG?
c- Who took advantage of Russian invasion of Ukraine to secure US LNG market share in Europe?
d- Which country is the largest gas exporter to Europe now?
3- Europe has not learned its lesson... yet!

- All they are doing now is shifting dependence from the "mined" fossil fuels to the "mined" minerals needed for the "claimed" carbon neutrality.
and most importantly: shifting Europe's dependence from Russian gas to US gas!

Die Anzeichen mehren sich, dass der neue #Westen zunehmend der alte #Osten ist.

#Wirtschaft, #Gesellschaft, #Politik und #Werte kollabieren in den 2020ern im Westen so wie einst in den 1980ern im Osten.

Ideologie schlägt Logik und am Ende sich selbst.

Thread: 14 May 2022: Day 80 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
It might not be completely finished yet—#Russia still has positions in the area—but as of 13 May #Ukraine has clearly defeated the Russians around #Kharkiv, and the complete eviction of Russian troops retreating toward the border is only a matter of time.

A thread by MERICS Analyst @RebeccaArcesati on this weekend’s #EU-#US Trade and Technology Council #TTC meeting in Paris-Saclay. 1/7
Compared to the 2021 meeting, this #TTC ministerial takes place against the backdrop of a radically different geopolitical environment. The war in 🇺🇦 makes reducing strategic dependencies from and preventing unwanted tech transfers to authoritarian powers a necessity. 2/7
What does this mean for 🇨🇳? 1)The #TTC was instrumental to allied coordination leading to a swift imposition of 🇷🇺 sanctions. The policy space to discuss the future of export controls on emerging & foundational techs has broadened. 3/7

This article by @andrewduffEU is sadly typical of group think in & around the Brussels bubble.

“Nobody who knows how the Brussels institutions work-without a strong government-can be confident the EU is fit to internalize #Ukraine’s national problem.” 1/…
It’s a well informed piece (from an #EU perspective) that on the surface might sound eminently reasonable- like some other recent attempts to fob off #Ukraine with 2nd class options. BUT, the quote in the previous tweet gives the game away. It shows 🇺🇦 is seen as a problem 2/
Rather than being recognised as the #EU’s best geopolitical opportunity in a generation, #Ukraine is presented as a cost, a burden to be borne, not a huge potential benefit to be embraced, or a possibility for EU renewal to be welcomed. 3/…

By 1945, #US’s war to contain #Japan’s Asian expansionism, retaliate for Pearl Harbor & drop 2 nuclear bombs to impose its World hegemony had become a project to eliminate European empires, lead global economic order, colonise Europe & the ME and keep them away from #Moscow.
The world is definitely far from being a safer place with #Finald and #Sweden joining the military organisation @NATO, ending decades of neutrality.

#EU leaders are risking the continent's safety, provoking & challenging #Russia instead of engaging in a serious dialogue.
#Russia doesn't need to confront @NATO almost 2 million soldiers w/ classical weapons when & if confrontation wld be the last way out. This is the beginning of the end of stability.

For what? To protect the #US unipolar hegemony of the world.

🇶🇦🇩🇪⛽⚡ #Germany and #Qatar have hit difficulties in talks over long-term #LNG supply deals amid differences over key conditions, including the duration of any contract, three people familiar with the discussions told #Reuters.

#Germany, which aims to cut its carbon emissions by 88% by 2040, is reluctant to commit to #Qatar's conditions to sign deals of at least 20 years to secure the massive #5
#LNG volumes it needs to reduce its dependence on Russian gas, the people said.

#Qatar, the world's largest #LNG supplier, is also specifying terms such as a destination clause that would prevent #Berlin from rerouting the gas to other areas in Europe, a condition which the European Union opposes.

Die Russen brauchen keinen BigMac, kein iPhone, kein Billy Regal oder Porsche 911.

Die Europäer indes brauchen Weizen, Gerste, Dünger, Gas, Öl, Neon etc.

#Russland ist der am stärksten sanktionierte Staat der Erde.

Mehr als 5.500 (!) #Sanktionen sind gegen Russland in Kraft.

Obwohl die Geschichte beweist dass Sanktionen keine #Kriege beenden sanktioniert der #Westen munter weiter.…
Das Problem der #Sanktionen gegen #Russland ist letztlich dreierlei:

1. Sie schädigen Russlands Wirtschaft deutlich weniger als erwartet

2. Sie schädigen die europäischen Volkswirtschaften deutlich mehr als erwartet

3. Sie haben das Potential die #EU und #USA zu kollapsieren

On the 12th of May, Finnish President Sauli Niinistö is expected to announce his country's accession to NATO, followed by the approval of the Finnish parliament. This step will be considered a provocation by Russia.

1/ It is one thing to pour weapons into #Ukraine, but for a country like this, it must provide for its citizens, not the least salaries, pensions and money to rune institutions. How will Ukraine and the West do it?
2/ Why #Russia should not be in a hurry in #Ukraine:
#EU planning to fund the operating expenses of Kiev for at least 3 months (€15 billion) through a new debt emission.
#Zelensky needs $7 billion per month to pay salaries, pensions & other gov expenditures.
3/ Give it few months. #Russia would have conquered the Donbas with #Odessa in the line of mire. With railways destroyed and sea access threatened, the Ukrainian economy will be paralyzed. The #EU would be bankrupt pouring money into Ukraine while asphyxiating its industry.

Im Zuge unserer Kampagne #keineMachtdenSicherheitsbehörden zur Innenministerkonferenz in #Würzburg hat die @SeebrueckeWue einen Gastbeitrag zu Repression gegen Geflüchtete geschrieben, worum es u.a. bei der Anti-Rep-Demo am 1.6. um 18 Uhr am Hauptbahnhof gehen wird:

Geflüchtete sind der Repression durch staatliche und internationale Polizei- und Militärinstitutionen (wie Frontex, lybische Küstenwache, griechische Küstenwache) in einem erheblichen Maß ausgesetzt. Durch die permanente Aufrüstung und Abschottungspolitik an den europäischen
Außengrenzen, werden Geflüchtete auf der Flucht an den Grenzen von Europa immer öfter Opfer von Menschenrechtsverletzungen in Form von Pushbacks und Gewalt, die nicht selten zu Verletzung und Tod führen. Das Mittelmeer ist ein Massengrab.

🧵It’s #EuropeDay2022. As an @theSNP MP I lead the fight against the damaging #Brexit which Scottish voters had rejected & I am committed to delivering an #independent #Scotland which will rejoin the #EU. Here’s 10 reasons why. Copyright @Dr_PhilippaW
1. SOLIDARITY WITH A GLOBAL A-TEAM. The threats facing us are global. The EU leads progressive global action to solve shared challenges. An independent Scotland in the EU would be far stronger than post-Brexit UK scrambling for bilateral agreements.
2. EQUALITY WITH ALL EU STATES Brexit has left the UK more isolated than ever. An independent Scotland would be equal in the EU & seek to be a progressive voice & role model within the EU and internationally promoting greater consensus, equality, and respect.
