Some more thoughts on meaning of RU oil embargo: 1) economic calculations are not the main issue. It is political breakage of “business as usual” with #Russia. The most sensitive area starts being covered by sanctions. Strategic turn from energy dependence is being started. 1/
2) “Steel” schemes appeared to be flexible. #EU changes its politics, business in areas, which were untouchable before. 3) RU isn’t a reliable partner anymore. The sooner this dependence from RU ends, the safer for the EU. This approach slowly, but irreversibly shapes reality 2/
3) #Ukraine will raise its weight in energy (and not only) negotiations, cause southern part of #Druzhba pipeline goes through 🇺🇦 territory to all 3 countries, excluded from ban on oil embargo: #Hungary, #Slovakia and #CzechRepublic. 3/

The World Is Fed Up With China’s Belligerence

Democracies are less worried about offending a fragile Beijing.

Today, Beijing represents a frowning, finger-pointing, never-erring crank, its constant vitriol diminishes the effectiveness of Chinese anger.… Image
2/ Not long ago, Beijing was economical & targeted with its outrage, only lashing out over major issues.

“Now China just picks fights out of arrogance and bullying.”

After all, if most moves are likely to anger Beijing, why hold back from any of them? Image
3/ The #USA has led the way in expanding ties with #Taiwan while grappling with an increasingly prickly China.
Similar dynamics are changing the minds of world leaders. In #Europe Beijing’s belligerence dented its image & inadvertently boosted #Taiwan 's international profile. Image

I am terrified of what this country has become. #Religious #dictatorship of far-right government (or rather ruling party's chairman) has destroyed the tripartite system.
An almost 100% ban on #abortion has been already introduced ([1],[2]) under the label of "being pro-life", without providing any actual support for disabled children and families in need.
Yesterday the parliament approved an anti-#LGBT bill in first step of legislation ([3]). Racism and homophobia are on the agenda ([4]), especially in the givernment-run tv stations.

#SexRightsAge #sex #ageing #czechrepublic
Those who are dating or living-apart-together show the highest sexual frequency and lowest incidence of chronic disease.

These findings 'suggest that sexual activity is intertwined with later-life relationships and sexual frequency may vary according to the relationship type'
The authors conclude that 'Future research may benefit from probing the extent to which partnered sex is important for maintaining bonds between older partners with separate households' #SexRightsAge

The UN #DurbanIV conference is a cesspool of discriminatory, anti-Israel propaganda.

“Zionism=Racism" is a vicious slander against the Jewish state and its supporters.

#EU #Brussels #Coronavirus #vaccine

A number of EU countries have asked Brussels to help the neighboring countries to the east with vaccination. The foreign ministers of 13 eastern and northern member states wrote to the EU Commission to this effect.
"We think that our borders will not be safe if we do not extend our support to our direct neighbors," declared the government representatives of #Bulgaria, #Croatia, the #CzechRepublic, #Denmark, #Estonia, #Finland, #Hungary, #Latvia, #Lithuania,
#Poland, #Romania, #Slovakia and #Sweden. Access to vaccines must be made easier for the eastern partners. The EU is already supporting non-member states in the Balkans as part of its vaccination strategy. 70 million euros from the EU budget are available for this.
