#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

Top 10 countries by projected population gains and losses by 2100. Makes for pretty grim reading for the Balkans and parts of Eastern Europe. So much of this decline is fuelled by outflow of young ppl moving abroad - a demographic time bomb. pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019…
This map of Bosnia is particularly stark. With exception of a few urban centres in centre/north east of the country, BiH is dying. Large parts of Herzegovina & the Federation’s eastern border area register <15 people per square km. Some displaced by war; more by economic reality.
A little out of date (numbers will probably be worse now) but #Moldova is much the same. Take away Chisinau & environs (Tiraspol in Transnistria would be the same but doesn’t feature due to RU occupation), bulk of communes are severely depopulated. ~45% of pop. working abroad.

We have not even scratched the surface of the damage Trump has done to our and NATO’s national interests.

How many of these countries were also extorted and held hostage by Trump and Barr unless they agreed to participate in a Kremlin charade against our national interests?

Dear @estNATO @MoD_Estonia & @MFAestonia: The official #LanguageLearning site (keeleklikk) doesn't work on mobile; the fact we need a 6-page download to troubleshoot Flash is telling. @duolingo has no classes yet, so we're making do with a mix of EKI, Youtubers, and helpful
2/x colleagues to get by. @LV_NATO & @LithuaniaMFA we have the same issues with #Latvia & #Lithuania as with #Estonia, wanting to learn but finding few mobile resources and no Duolingo options.
You are important allies. Please help us with mobile #teaching so we can study and
3/x visit and socialize and study your history and enjoy trying your cultures like good guests - namely, language skills - so we're not helpless or tiresome to the people we'll meet around town or in uni.
Would you please fix this situation?

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

Trumps penchant for #projection may explain his outspoken hostility twd #Montenegro & absurd accusations about them wanting to start #WWIII

What's obvious is #Putin's lust for this #Adriatic port city as it's not his first attempt to acquire it's control
