Former #British PM #BorisJohnson said that the Normandy format, which was created to peacefully resolve the conflict in southeastern #Ukraine, was a "diplomatic imitation".
He is now 3rd #European leader declares that all this was not in good Faith (before was Merkel & Hollande)
For clarification: "Normandy format" was agreement between a group of leaders of #Germany, #Russia, #Ukraine and #France to resolve the situation in the east of Ukraine. #Donbass
Following the negotiations in the Normandy format on February 12, 2015, the #Minsk agreements were developed, which provided for a ceasefire, the withdrawal of heavy weapons from the front line, the release of prisoners of war and constitutional reform in #Ukraine.

Just reading that @Europarl_EN cancels upcoming diplomatic missions to Morocco & Qatar amid ongoing probes of corruption allegations. 30 MEPs call on to ban Moroccan diplomats from entering #EP pending an outcome in the corruption investigation. Not my approach. #Mythread Image
The European Parliament needs first to apply the current rules properly. Let’s recall that a decade or so ago, the European Parliament was rocked by a cash-for-influence scandal leading to the resignation of some MEPs. 1/1
As the result, #EP introduced in 2012 a new Code of Conduct aimed at preventing corruption. Everything is in this Code: principles: disinterest, integrity, openness, diligence, honesty, accountability, respect for EP reputation. #Brussels 1/2

15 countries have the #Leopard2 and have #Germany's approval for #Ukraine to be the end-user. #Berlin has not agreed to send its tanks until today.
Differences between FM @ABaerbock, the "green", and Defence Minister Christine #Lambrecht on who decides on this matter.
The #US won't send its tank M1 A2 Abrams for fear of seeing it destroyed, thus damaging the US selling of the tank.
#Russia has anti-tank missiles capable of destroying the US (and the #German) tank, and #Ukraine is the "market" where countries r selling their weapons worldwide.
The #US prefer to see the #European industry absorbing the consequences as long as #Europe, like #Ukraine, is ready to please #Washington.

#Iran slams #European countries over human rights claims
sana.sy/en/?p=297043
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani on Monday denounced the UK and some European countries over their reaction to Iran’s execution of its national Alireza Akbari who had been sentenced to death over spying for the United Kingdom.
sana.sy/en/?p=297043
“The UK move against Iran’s national security received Iran’s firm intelligence and judicial response,” Kanaani was quoted by IRNA as saying on his twitter page.

(1/23) This thread is mainly addressed to my #German followers, but it could also be interesting for those who always wanted to know how Germany could become the most culturally leftist country on the European continent. Accordingly, this thread is a #political #commentary by me.
(2/23) It is about the historical personality of the first post-war chancellor, Konrad Adeneauer. I also would like to finally dispel a myth that still plagues German conservatives, by which I do not mean recationaries, but all those who do not want to destroy their own country.
(3/23) This myth is the myth of the "good old", #50s and #60s, #CDU (Christian Democratic Party) and the question of what role a post-war #Germany could have played if #Adenauer and his party had not made completely wrong decisions about essential political directions.

Today there are new and powerful results from our diplomatic marathon.
#France is taking #European defense support to #Ukraine to a new level, and I thank President Macron for this leadership.
We will get more armored vehicles, and in particular – French-made wheeled tanks.
1/3
This is what gives a clear signal to all our other partners: there is no rational reason why Western-style tanks have not yet been supplied to Ukraine. And this is very important in order to restore security for all Ukrainians and peace for all Europeans.
2/3
Such a signal is extremely relevant before the new "Ramstein".
It’s necessary to put an end to Russian aggression this year and not delay any of those defense opportunities that can speed up the defeat of the terrorist state.
Modern Western armored vehicles, Western-style tanks

Breakfast time late. Reading an interesting article of @gideonrachman about #China. This might be a long #thread.
ft.com/content/05408b…
"Do we want China to fail" Nobody wants to see China fail. The #Ukrainian war & #Covid pandemic have demonstrated the existing limitations & risk of our dependency of #China, it has challenged our abilities to act in line with its interests in an interconnected 🌐. That’s all 1/2
Currently, #China controls a vast majority of those resources, providing Beijing with a powerful tool - export restrictions in a challenging geopolitical context. China will never be poor 1/3.

Yes, but it's incorrect to assume that there can be a globally competitive “made in #EU" made in #Japan" "made in #US" chip industry anytime soon. Capacity building in this sector is a long-term process, goes beyond industrial policy & large spending! We need ethical connectivity
But we cannot say the same of #China! In the last decade, China’s growing independence presents an
extraordinary shift, moving China away from #European countries & from #BRICS members. 1/1
The entire global structure of ICT trade has become China, the only country, digitally autonomous through its contested technology & industrial policies choice and “Made in China 2025” to data localization laws & other strict digital regulations....1/2

My big wish for #European #energy in 2023 is that the @EU_Commission and European #governments push the rollout of #smartmeters and #smarttariffs across the continent.
Why do I say that? Because #smartmeters and #smarttariffs give #energy customers the ability to control their own destiny by enabling them to switch off and on devices depending on how expensive #powerprices are.
#smartmeters and #Smarttariffs enable new #businessmodels such as what @OctopusEnergy are offering. In addition, #digitalisation will allow the smoother and quicker integration of #EVs into the system as well as smart #heating.

THREAD ON INTERNATIONAL SECURITY: Every additional Russian missile or drone hitting Ukrainian civilian buildings or critical infrastrucure has wider implications for Europe and the world. /1
(Picture: Summer 2019 @vostoksos mission: Recording gunfire at the Donbas contact line.)
The March 2022 decision by #NATO to reject #Ukraine's request for a #NoFlyZone was taken quickly & resolutely. However, deeper repercussions of this seemingly clear-cut case have remained under the radar screen. What Kyiv wanted was not NATO's active participation in the war. /2
Instead of inviting an out-of-area mission comparable to NATO's bombing of Serbia in 1999, the Ukrainian request for a #NoFlyZone was about protection from rather than an attack on Russia. It would be a bilateral agreement between Brussels & Kyiv regarding Ukraine's territory. /3

How #Ukrainian people see the victory, what they are doing to achieve it, do they understand the limits of the possible in war, how do they see #Ukraine’s dependence on partners and allies.
A 🧵based on results of the several polls conducted by @dem_initiatives in 2022:
1. Nation is united than ever before to complete the mission of survival.
Amid heavy fighting in Donetsk region, before successful offensives in Kharkiv and Kherson region majoritu of Ukrainians expressed strong faith in victory (beginning of August 2022)
2. Russian missile attacks cannot break this faith.
The poll in #Mykolaiv (late August -early September) after five months of daily bombardments most residents showed confidence that #UkrainianArmy will liberate #Kherson
So, we can suggest that 🇷🇺 missile attacks won't succeed

More than once in the past hundred years the U.S. has had the chance to end russian imperialism for good, but it has never seized the opportunity.
The first time was when, in 1919, William Bullitt brought lenin's proposal from Petrograd, 👇
2001-2009.state.gov/r/pa/ho/time/w…
👆for a cease-fire and the fixing of borders in their current state, that is, the division of #russia into five, or more, sovereign states.
For some reason Woodrow Wilson did not even bother to respond to such a remarkable proposal. Moreover, Wilson's famous 👇
👆"Fourteen Points," in which he outlined his vision of an international order after World War I, despite all his promises, were not put into practice.
It was already clear that the terms of the Versailles peace treaty would push #Germany and #russia👇

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! The assassination of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of #Belarus, Vladimir #Makei, was planned, prepared and implemented on the personal initiative of the President of #Russia, Vladimir #Putin.
1/12
The secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, acted as the curator of the implementation of the "project". No one really hides the fact that it was a murder from #Lukashenko.
2/12
The action was demonstrative and aimed at disrupting #Lukashenko's separate negotiations with the #Westworld and #China. Vladimir #Makei, of course, was not an independent figure. Under the conditions of Lukashenko's total dictatorship, this is not possible.

#PolicyBrief | When will a 2-metre rise in #SeaLevel occur, and how might we #adapt?

Read this joint policy-brief published by @CoCliCoServices @SCORE_EUproject and @ProtectSlr
👉protect-slr.eu/policy-briefs/

Key messages in this thread 🧵
A 2-metre rise in #SeaLevel is almost inevitable. The uncertainty is on the timing, somewhere between one century and the next two thousand years. Exceeding 2 meters of sea-level rise will fundamentally change #European #coastal zones.
Europe and National States can recognize that coastal #adaptation is an ongoing process that involves short-term actions, long-term planning and strategic thinking.

1/ As suggested by @PopovaProf, I'd like to comment on the recent remarks by the #Brazilian president-elect, @LulaOficial, on the #Russian war of aggression in #Ukraine. Needless to say, many were struck by the ignorance and brutishness of these utterances. A 🧵...
2/ But what lies behind this? Many European/US observers seem dumbfounded by the fact that a leader who is widely (and correctly) believed to have bravely stood against dictatorship in his own country would support a genocidal warmonger such as #Putin on the international stage.
3/ The sources of Lula's (and #LatinAmerica's more widely) attitudes towards the war are many, and differ widely between countries, contexts, and social strata. The probably most often mentioned one is anti-Americanism, stemming from a variety of sources, but often relevant...

I wonder if #Brexit voters noticed that Turkey didn't join the #EU, that the #NHS didn't get hundreds of millions of pounds more each week, that fishermen & farmers are worse off, that small exporters are drowning in paperwork, that #European grants haven't been replaced....
In short the #VoteLeave project fear didn't come to pass, we didn't get our cake & eat it, nothing did actually stay the same for us as travellers, nor did Erasmus continue, scientific grants & joint projects were lost.
And the #Conservatives are even more divided after the referendum to unite them all.
Time to realign with our friends, our closest & largest trading partners, time to #RejoinEU, time to undo #Brexit chaos.
