In part 1 we explained EU LNG and the importance of its optimial use.

We continue - Part II with a total of 25 Tweets

1/n 🧵
#UkraineRussiaWar #EuropeanUnion
In part I we explained that Europe must replace 150bcm of Russian gas imports to help support the end of the Russian genocide in Ukraine.

It will also be the recipe to reduce the current risk-premium in gas prices & avoid long-lasting food shortages or a refugee crisis.

We explained that...
- (1) higher LNG imports from optimised infra & capacity utilisation can deliver up to 90bcm or 62% of 150bcm if free market prices can continue to "pull" LNG into Europe;
- (2) one-off storage potential of up to 25bcm (one winter) to buy some time...

Let's go - Part 1 of a total of 25

1/n 🧵
#UkraineRussiaWar #EuropeanUnion
Basics first: How much gas does Europe need to replace (not just the EU, UK et al too)?

Answer: Europe purchased 150 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas from Russia, imported from 3 pipelines & 15bcm in the form of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) by sea.

2/n Source: Burggraben
Why is it important to cut Russian gas?
Because it finances Putin's genocide in Ukraine which in turn pushes gas prices up. That destroys businesses and - for heaven's sake - creates food shortages with a subsequent refugees crisis.

Human Rights Foundation "Ar.Rukh.Hak" reports that the prosecutor's office in #Shymkent is conducting a search in the house of a lawyer of the foundation, Shalipa #Bekkulova.@PACE_President @EUParl_EN @rozathun
Earlier, on 20 April, the KNB summoned Shalipa #Bekkulova for questioning in a politically motivated criminal case as a witness. Formally, this may be related to the fact that on January 5,
when the authorities deliberately turned off the Internet in the country in order to total information blockade, Shalipa Bekkulova together with her colleagues called civil activists around #Kazakhstan to find out whether they are safe.@NachoSAmor @KubiliusA @JosepBorrellF

"we’re facing the worst #food #crisis since 2008. It’s a weird time to divert more grain from the food supply to fuel #tanks. In Washington, though, it’s always time to divert grain from food to #fuel."… #FoodSystems #EnergySystems
"The amount of corn it takes to fill an #SUV with #ethanol could feed a person for a year, and the #US and #Europe could immediately replace the lost grain exports from #Ukraine’s breadbasket by cutting their #biofuel production in half."
"In fact, a bunch of studies have confirmed that biofuel mandates were a leading driver of the 2008 food crisis, driving up prices by driving up demand for grain and vegetable oil."

65 years ago today, the foundations of the #EuropeanUnion as we know it were laid.

On this day the governments of France, West- Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands & Luxembourg agreed to set up the European Economic Community by signing the Treaty of Rome. (1/5) 65th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome
In the treaty, the six signatory states declared to:
🟣 create a customs union
🟣 create a single market across member states
🟣 establish some of the institutions we know today: Council, Commission, Parliamentary Assembly (later European Parliament) & Court of Justice. (2/5)
The treaty of Rome was a logical sequel to the European Coal and Steel Community, established in 1951. Robert Schuman 🇪🇺, one of the architects of the #European integration project, hoped that these steps would make war “not only unthinkable but materially impossible”. (3/5)

$83.83 for almost a full tank of #gas in southwest #Atlanta.

Nonetheless, we persist 🇺🇦
#gasprices Image
As of Tuesday morning, the average cost for a gallon of gas in the country is $4.17 per AAA. The current price is up approximately 10 cents from Monday and more than 50 cents from last week. Costs are expected to continue to rise throughout the year.…
The sanctions put on #Russia by the U.S. and #EuropeanUnion severely impacted Russia's ability to sell crude oil, one of the biggest determiners for gas prices. Since the country is one of the biggest energy suppliers, crude oil prices have dramatically risen.

One is the American roulette and the other, the French European roulette. The difference between the two is that an #Americans roulette wheel has 38 numbers while the #EuropeanUnion has 37. Players bet on what number and color a little ball will end up.… The wheel spins one way and the ball goes the opposite until it drops onto one of the numbers.

There is a rumor that Albert Einstein said that “You cannot beat a roulette table unless you steal money from it.” If this is actually true it would seem… that the person who plays roulette either isn’t too smart or just not in it for the money. It would appear that the last is true as many play roulette. There are websites dedicated solely to the discussion of roulette bets and there are numerous places

We need the #EuropeanUnion and the #UnitedStates to open up all their registries of land and property to investigative reporters and researchers to be able to look up real estate owned by Putin and his cronies. #Ukraine
The Kremlin and its oligarchs source their lethal power from the obscurity of secret bank accounts and hidden real estate in the West. Unified and open registries of real estate across the EU and the US would considerably expose Russian kleptocrats (and not only) #Kleptocracy
It is high time to massively #OpenData in property registries, unify them, match them against lists of PEPs and their offshores, do #OSINT on the physical locations (as these people tend to cluster) and go back to the data to expose more. #transparency

A quick worst-case scenario on economic repercussions of the possible Russian-Ukrainian war. Thread.

1) West likely to respond with sanctions, possibly even shutting Russia from the interbank transaction system SWIFT.
2) Russia would respond by shutting gas to Europe. 1/5
3) This would lead to a massive spike in energy prices in Europe pushing the continent into a recession with high #inflation pressures (stagflation).
4) Inflation would reach double-digits within 2-3 mo.
5) Asset markets would fluctuate heavily first, then crash.
6) Rampant inflation would force the #ECB to rise rates in a rapid manner and stop PEPP and QE.
7) The European banking sector would crumble.
8) Sovereign yields would explode.
9) The Eurozone would unravel.
10) Europe would fall into a depression.

Clear message to #Russia by 🇩🇪 President #Steinmeier following his re-election:

“We are in the midst of the danger of a (…) war in Eastern Europe. Russia bears the responsibility for this.

Russia's troop deployment cannot be misunderstood. It is a threat to #Ukraine 🇺🇦” 1/5
“But the people [in #Ukraine] have a right to live without fear+threat, to self-determination+sovereignty.

No country in the world has the right to destroy that. And we will respond decisively to whoever tries to do so.”

- President #Steinmeier in speech after re-election 2/5
“Fear is growing not only in #Ukraine, but in many countries of Eastern Europe.

That is why we stand by the Estonians, the Latvians & the Lithuanians; we stand together with the Poles, the Slovaks & the Romanians & all our allies: you can rely on us.”

President #Steinmeier 3/5

"Two years ago, as the 🌎 was still coming to grips with the spread of a new coronavirus, WHO did what only WHO can do – we convened hundreds of scientists from around the world to identify the most urgent priorities in R&D. Among them was the development of vaccines."-@DrTedros
"Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of that first meeting.
It’s incredible to think that within a year of that meeting, the first vaccines were approved, and just two years later, more than 10 billion doses have been administered globally."-@DrTedros

1/10 Jeden z najčastejších argumentov, ktoré počúvame od proruských trollov a proruskej propagandy je, že Rusko sa iba bráni, Spojené štáty a členovia NATO (teda aj Slovensko) provokujú, a že Rusko má právo zabezpečovať svoju bezpečnosť.

#RussiaInvadedUkraine #NATO #EU Image
Všetko by to bolo pekné, keby to bolo pravda. Rusko žiaľ je ten agresor. Zasahuje do diania v iných štátoch, bráni krajinám ako je Ukrajina, Fínsko, Gruzínsko rozhodnúť sa o vlastnej medzinárodnej politike a keď to urobia vyhráža sa im vojnou prípadne okupuje ich územia. Image
