Following my post about Kherson and hryvnia I want to tell some facts about it. 😊 "Hryvnia" was originally a unit of weight of Kyivan Rus’, its origin is attributed to the 8th-9th centuries. With the spread of Arab dirhams on the territory of Rus’, 1/4
a certain number of them began to be equated by weight to the #hryvnia. Gradually, the hryvnia acquired the value of not only a weight, but also a unit of account. Later, silver bars of standard shape and weight became coins. Also a silver coin of that time. 2/4
The hryvnia coin has been known since the middle of the 11th century. The first to appear were Kyiv coin hryvnias — diamond-shaped ingots weighing about 164 g. Novgorod hryvnias appeared almost simultaneously — stick-shaped ingots weighing about 204.7 g. 3/4

Speaking after the emergency meeting of EU energy ministers in Brussels, French minister Barbara Pompili says ministers agreed that the conditions of their contracts should be respected.

She says the Commission provided guidance on legality of paying in rubles.
Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson says she explained to ministers that payment in rubles constitute a clear violation of sanctions against Russia, "and cannot be accepted".

"Countries should not have any illusions they can rely on the good faith of Gazprom in this matter"
🇪🇺Commissioner Simson disputes the Bloomberg story that a number of European countries are already paying for #RussianGas in rubles.

She says she’s not aware of any EU country that is doing so or has announced their intention to do so.

Waiting for the 🇪🇺 energy ministers to arrive for the emergency summit to agree an oil embargo against #Russia and a united stance on #Putin’s demand to pay for gas in #rubles.

The decisions taken today will have ripple effects throughout the global economy.
@BarbaraPompili,🇫🇷French Minister for Ecological Transition who convened this emergency meeting of energy ministers, stresses upon entering that the purpose of today's summit is to respond to Russia shutting off the gas taps to #Poland & #Bulgaria, not to discuss the #OilEmbargo.
"Today's council is exclusively on the question of gas and not on the question of oil," Pompili tells a reporter who asks about the embargo.

"We have other discussions that are ongoing, but we must stay focused today on the issue of gas."

Playing down expectations?

52 U.S. Code § 30121(a)(2): “It shall be unlawful for . . . a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation . . . from a foreign national.”

Merely ‘soliciting’ meets the test whether or not one rec’d a (contribution or donation is immaterial.

His tweet about the purpose of the 6/16 meeting contradicts his earlier denials & could spell trouble for his son & him

LB:”To be clear, when Gates says he embezzled from Manafort, what he's actually admitting to is embezzling from the Russian mafia.”

Rick Gates admits on stand he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from Manafort, ergo an admission he stole from the RU mob.
