Zelensky finally got his WH meeting. And @CNN its interview—2 yrs late. @ZelenskyyUa tells @FareedZakaria his goal was & is for #Ukraine to win, diplomatically saying he didn’t feel pressure—even if Trump intended it. But jokes a dig at Trump? “This wasn’t Robert DeNiro—my idol.”
@CNN @ZelenskyyUa @FareedZakaria ZAKARIA: Are you worried America will abandon Ukraine [aft Afghanistan w/drawal]?
ZELENSKY: You can’t compare Ukraine to Afghanistan. Since Russia's invasion & occupation in 2014, Ukrainian volunteer citizen battalions have been defending their own country. There was no one else.
@CNN @ZelenskyyUa @FareedZakaria Ukrainian President Zelensky: #Ukraine is not Afghanistan. And #Russia is not the Taliban. Despite having one of most powerful armies in the world, Russia has failed to conquer Ukraine.

Der #SPIEGEL hat wieder eine unfassbar gute Recherche zum Thema #CDU und dubiose Hilfen für Unternehmen abgeliefert.

Worum geht's?

Die Firma #Varex hat in den 90er Jahren Computertomografen in die #Ukraine geliefert (Streitwert 40 Mio. €).

Die Ukraine hat diese mit einer Bürgschaft der Nationalbank abgesichert.

Heute beträgt der Streitwert über 1 Mrd. € (wegen Zinsen seit 1993).
Wer ist #Varex?

Das weiß man nicht so genau.
Laut #Bundesanzeiger hat das Unternehmen 3 Mitarbeitende.
Am Konzernsitz München prangt ein Papieraufkleber.

Allein 2020 wechselte die Firma 3mal(!) die Anschrift.

10 minutes to #Ukraine’s President Zelensky’s address at @Stanford. His first visit to California.

Nice to see people wearing masks!

“Everything is possible”—President Zelensky @ZelenskyyUa @FSIStanford says, “This is Ukraine’s credo and mine. Here I am at Stanford, just a common guy from a common family from a common industrial town in Eastern Ukraine, Kryvyi Rih (Krivoy Rog) Image
First question from a woman from #Belarus, isn’t a question but a statement of gratitude. She thanks President Zelensky for supporting the opposition struggle for freedom. She says he & Ukraine have been an inspiration. Image

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.
.
.
.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

1. Peter Dickinson​ asked for the @AtlanticCouncil about #Ukraine's main achievement since 1991. My following uncut answer was a bit broader and also about #Georgia and #Moldova.
atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/ukrainea…
2. Post-Soviet #Ukraine’s, #Georgia’s and #Moldova’s biggest achievements have been their conclusions of Association Agreements with the #EuropeanUnion. The 2004 #OrangeRevolution was a precondition for Kyiv’s start of negotiations with Brussels in 2008.
3. The 2013-14 #RevolutionofDignity, in turn, was crucial to sign the #EU deal initialed in 2012. Ukraine’s two uprisings were necessary but not sufficient conditions for the pact’s adoption in September 2014 and ratification by July 2017.

THREAD: New #Ukraine NatSec Council sanctions against blogger Anatoliy Shariy + editor Igor Guzhva lop off most of remaining #Russia-leaning, Maidan-skeptical end of media spectrum. Brings up same troubling questions as earlier sanctions against Viktor MedvedchukTV stations.1/
Primary question: is this countering disinformation and Russian info-warfare, silencing of dissident voices or some of both? 2/
I’ll focus on Guzhva, a figure I’ve researched, written on before. He was editor of Vesti media group, journal linked to Oleksandr Klymenko, oligarch and minister-on-the-lam who fled Ukraine after ouster of yanukovich.3/

#BREAKING: 🇺🇦 #Ukraine 's deputy FM Yevgeny Yenin says a Ukrainian plan that arrived in #Afghanistan 🇦🇫 to evacuate Ukrainian citizens last week was hijacked by unidentified individuals and taken to #Iran 🇮🇷
Ukraine’s Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Yenin said on Tuesday, "Last Sunday, our plane was hijacked by other people. On Tuesday, the plane was practically stolen from us, with an unidentified group of passengers onboard instead of airlifting Ukrainians."
"Our next three evacuation attempts were also not successful because our people could not get into the airport," he said.

The security situation remains poor in Kabul this morning, and to the extent any order is being brought it is by the Haqqani Network, a component of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
There really is no excuse: Biden was warned for months and months, right out in public. It needed no intelligence assessment.
The administration's adoption of existentialist vocabulary when asked why they're so awful at their jobs doesn't seem to be just a coping strategy; it's an indication they're lying again, in this instance about staying as long as needed to get everyone out

You know this is indeed a clusterfuck when even the Czechs start to give you a piece of their mind.

Make no doubt about it ... this is nothing less than proverbially seeing DC's face being dragged thru the mud in many capitols across the world!

I mean this isn't a one off.

This message is on repeat.

The Yanks literally did not honor their own cheques and they were meager cheques to begin with.

When this lot tells you to man up that means you really have lost your marbles and balls!!

#BidenDisaster #BidenFailure
Also when you start to see images like this from hardcore establishment media emanating from the Brits it means not only have you lost the fringes but now the entire damn center has collapsed too.

Was anyone awake? Was anyone at the wheel?

Europe is the third-largest region for crypto, although it has a high degree of fragmentation.

We created this guide to map the current state of the European industry and help founders explore top players and regulations that may shape the future of crypto in the Union.

Europeans believe cryptos are here to stay. And, there is a growing female user base.

A @Coinmarketcap report shows most of the new female entrants in 2020 came from European countries (58.55%), with Greece leading the trend, followed by Romania, Portugal, and Ukraine.

3.34% of French residents are estimated to own cryptos, of whom 67% are significantly wealthy, highly educated, and young.

#NordStream2: What the German government will sell as a diplomatic success is a compromise at the expense of Ukraine & the climate. It starts with the fact that negotiations were conducted over the heads of Ukraine, against whom the project is aimed. /1
wsj.com/articles/u-s-g…
Ukraine, Poland and other European critics of #NordStream2 are left to accept a fait accompli. The #Ukraine will be resigned to non-binding declarations of intent and financial consolations. /2
#NordStream2 was a geopolitical project from the start. It gives the Kremlin a free hand to increase political and military pressure on #Ukraine without jeopardizing the gas deal with the EU. The deal with Washington leaves this flank completely open. /3

#NordStream2: Was die Bundesregierung als Erfolg feiert, ist ein "Kompromiss" zu Lasten der Ukraine und des Klimas. Es fängt damit an, dass über die Köpfe der Ukraine hinweg verhandelt wurde, gegen die das Projekt zielt. Das ist mieser Stil. /1 wsj.com/articles/u-s-g…
Der Ukraine, Polen und den anderen europäischen Kritikern von #NordStream2 bleibt nur noch, ein fait accompli zu akzeptieren. Die #Ukraine wird mit unverbindlichen Absichtserklärungen und finanziellen Trostpflastern abgefunden. /2
Die Gasversorgung der #Ukraine soll gesichert, darüber hinaus in Energieeffizienz + erneuerbare Energien investiert werden. Die Summen sind überschaubar. Für die angestrebte Fortsetzung des russischen Gastransits durch Ukraine + Polen gibt es weder Garantien noch Bedarf. /3
