Thread: #Brexit has gone worse for Russia than they could imagine. So badly, in fact, that Putin is reduced to sucking up to the EU in a belated strategy to gain influence. bbc.com/news/world-eur…
2. Brexit was supposed to be the first in a long line of anti-EU and secessionist movements. Putin, you see, is fundamentally bored with Russia and despises Russians. That's why Moscow is so messed up. Pensions raided, nuclear accidents, bogged down in Syria, planes on fire.
3. Now Putin has to beat up Russia's children at home in order to win even local elections - he cheats in his own elections so that there is no opposition. Fundamentally he's a coward. Foreign policy is Putin's escape. He wanted to break up the EU.

PM @JustinTrudeau at #NATOEngages on why @NATO is as important today as when it was created:

“It’s about enhancing and protecting the democratic principles that we all hold as our core values. And that is something that continues to be as relevant as it ever has been.” 2/
On NATO deciding to take a significant new role in Iraq, Canadian PM @JustinTrudeau—“We are going to engage in Iraq as an alliance—capacity building, training…”

Germany Defence Minister @vdleyen:

"Trump is a business man. He will understand that spending is not just about input, but also about output. You can spend 2% on your national defence budget, but not do anything for NATO. Focus must be on capabilities."

#NATOengages #NATOsummit
"A more peaceful, more resilient, more democratic world is good for @Canada.

We deeply believe in @NATO's values:

Peace, security & #DefendingDemocracy are as relevant today as ever." -
