Sergey Lavrov si conferma diplomatico di statura inarrivabile

Il discorso duro e senza fronzoli tenuto all’ #UNGA , la cui franchezza era necessaria in questo momento chiave della storia mondiale, è schietto e pieno di buon senso.

Lavrov, riassumendo gli interventi globali dell'Impero statunitense, domanda quale fosse il paese, semmai ce ne fosse uno, che avesse “beneficiato” dall’esportazione armata di democrazia secondo il modello americano.
“Quali sono stati i benefici dell’interventismo americano (e loro vassalli) per le popolazioni di Iraq, Libia, Afghanistan o Siria?”

“Queste questioni dovrebbero essere sempre gestite con diplomazia e dialogo aperto,

1. I think the easy way to remove Russia from the UN security council is simply for the US to expel the entire Russian delegation. Then vote in Security Counsel to remove Russia and then confirm it with 2/3 vote of the General Assembly. Next best is to dissolve the current
2. UN and reform it without Russia as a Security Council member or perhaps even without a General Assembly member status. To keep their access to NYC the #UNGA might go along with removing Russia. China could block it but then they have to face door no 2 that ends their spies'
3. tickets to NYC. I think our late granting of visas for Russia may have been a warning and a signal how it can be done. Imagine what we would do if Russia starts using nuclear weapons? The idea that we still allow people like Lavrov here is absurd. If China won't agree we can

We want hope for the whole world.

For this, the European Union reaches out to all those who want to cooperate for the common good.

To honour the promise of the United Nations.

The EU is not asking anyone to choose between East and West, North or South. But there is a choice to be made.

The EU's choice is respect for borders, rather than aggression. It's cooperation rather than threat. It's rules-based order, rather than the law of the strongest.
When a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council starts an unprovoked and unjustifiable war, a war condemned by the UN General Assembly, its suspension from the Security Council should be automatic.

Mobilitazione parziale dell’esercito russo: il mondo su un piano inclinato

Il conflitto ucraino va verso l’escalation, ma il vero pericolo deriva dal contesto mondiale.

Il mio ultimo articolo per #IntelligenceForThePeople

1/16… Image
La decisione del Cremlino di richiamare 300.000 riservisti dell’esercito è una svolta che deve far riflettere.
Essa si inserisce in un contesto globale dominato dallo sfaldamento della globalizzazione, e da una polarizzazione che porta all’emergere di blocchi contrapposti.
All’ONU (#UNGA), per descrivere la battaglia cruciale rappresentata dalla ridefinizione dell’ordine mondiale, Biden non ha trovato di meglio che definirla “una competizione fra democrazia e autocrazia”, accusando duramente la Russia.

Often, I am asked what achievement I am most proud of, and my answer is always the same – the sense of fulfilment I feel, when I interact with the beneficiaries of the @TonyElumeluFDN. ImageImageImage

🇺🇸 @POTUS at #UNGA on China:
Let me be direct about the competition between the U.S. & China. [...] The U.S. will conduct itself as a reasonable leader. We do not seek conflict. We do not seek a Cold War. We do not ask any nation to choose between the U.S. or any other partner. President Biden delivers remarks at the United Nations Gener
But the United States will be unabashed in promoting our vision of a free, open, secure, and prosperous world. [...] When individuals have the chance to live in dignity and develop their talents, everyone benefits.
We seek to uphold peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits. We remain committed to our One China policy, which has helped prevent conflict for four decades. And we continue to oppose unilateral changes in the status quo by either side.…

Heading to @UKandEU #goodneighbours2022, so let's consider the early signs of Truss' EU policy

Short version: hmmm

The #UNGA round of meetings yesterday was the first proper opportunity for Truss to put out the lines of her approach to EU, member states and the US

Tellingly, most attention focused on Ukraine

Ukraine us not only urgent and critical in itself, it also offers a reason for UK to work with partners and demonstrate effective action

So shouldn't surprise that Truss follows in Johnson's footsteps on this (especially if other discussions are more difficult)

Welcome to Thursday's daily thread on #Russia's war.
It's Day 211 of non stop shelling and killing.

#Ukraine needs your help, if you can spare anything, please consider donating to our Fundraiser as we're falling behind the target…
Wednesday was remarkable.

From pathetic Putin's ramblings/partial mobilisation, to the street protests in #Russia, to the prisoner swap deal which saw all 5 Britons released, ending with Zelenskyy's focused and powerful, history-making speech at the #UN

Last night there were big queues at #Russia's southern border with #Georgia.

Presumably men trying to flee before they receive the dreaded call-up to fight in #Ukraine.

Yesterday there were reportedly long queues at the Finnish border and flight tickets selling out.

This week US President Biden said the #COVID19 pandemic is over.

He did so almost exactly a year since world leaders committed to ensuring 70% of the world’s population got vaccinated against #COVID19.

It failed dismally.

What went wrong? Image
First a bit of background:

At last year's UN week, Joe Biden gathered government leaders who recognized the gross inequities in vaccine distribution between rich and poor countries.

#UNGA #UNGA77 Image
Activists like members of @ONECampaign @GlblCtzn and @PandemicAction were delighted that leaders were finally paying attention.

At the time about 60% of the population of rich countries had been fully vaccinated.

A shocking 1.4% of poor countries had. Image
