#Zelensky's govt agrees to #Hungary's long-standing wish to have a separate region in Ukraine for ethnic Hungarians. Not even Yanukovych made such dangerous concessions with the clear potential to disrupt regional stability & #Ukraine's national security.

Don't think for a moment this isn't a profoundly dangerous move. Like Putin, Orban has imperialist ambitions 👇. Hungary has unlawfully been distributing passports in Ukraine for some time in the region that they consider part of the "Carpathian Basin".

This move also creates an extraordinarily dangerous precedent which paves the way for federalization of Ukraine because Russia will certainly grasp such a tool to advance its cause for "Russian districts" in other parts of Ukraine. Zelensky knows this.

Without a country to call their own, the Donauschwaben have an identity problem. The Donauschwaben, anglicized “Danube Swabians”, came into existence in the 17th and 18th century when German pioneers settled in Habsburg, Hungary. #danubeswabian #german #donauschwaben
German troops, commanded by Prince Eugene of Savoy, a Frenchman in service of the Austro-Hungarian dual-monarchy in command of German troops, had recovered land from 150 years of Turkish misrule. #danubeswabian #german #donauschwaben
In the aftermath of the Second World War, the Donauschwaben were divided, stripped of their possessions and expelled from their homelands. #danubeswabian #expelledgermans #justiceforgermans #German

THREAD: Instead of working to protect women & girls during the #COVID19 pandemic, #Hungary has just rushed through a vote to withdraw from a groundbreaking European treaty to combat violence against women. #IstanbulConvention. hungarytoday.hu/govt-rejects-r…
#Hungary's Christian Democratic Party introduced the bill only last night, on the grounds that the #IstanbulConvention's protections of #migrants and #refugees contradict national policy, and that it promotes so-called "gender ideology." voiceofeurope.com/2020/05/hungar…
Such misinformation has been used to advance homophobic, anti-migrant & anti-women's rights agendas elsewhere in the region. Misrepresentation of efforts towards gender equality has provoked dangerous attacks on women's & #LGBT rights in #Poland. See @hrw hrw.org/news/2019/02/0…

1/Good article on @georgesoros history of profiting frm destruction incl 1994 attempt to buy 25% of #Hungary’s OTP-MF Lajos Bokros pushed for deal but PM Gyula Horn said no-then during 2008 financial crisis- Soros illegally influenced OTP share price w/rumors of #bankruptcy
2/shares collapsed, #Soros reaped the profits- Budapest Stock Exchange (BUX) itself fell over 7%, many small investors were also hurt & HUF suffered, too- just another day for Soros. HFSA went after Soros for illegal market influence & fined him $2.5 mln-#Soros later denied
3/having anything to do w/it personally- right. After all, he doesn't consider social consequences when making $$-(see clip) As to Lajos Bokros-he resigned in 1996 after his austerity measures utterly failed-worked at the World Bank, ran #Soros@CEU for a while & is still a

[THREAD] The emergency law passed in #Hungary is another step in #Orban’s plan to get rid of #democracy and #RuleofLaw. Here are 5 things the #EU could do to help Hungarians restore their democracy. Tools are there, just not being used.
/1
1 - Use the stick. #Orban’s emergency law violates EU rules in at least two ways, which could allow the @EU_Commission to open infringements and bring #Hungary before the #ECJ.
/2
The threat of imprisonment will dissuade media outlets, journalists and activists from working in and on #Hungary. That violates EU rules on freedom of establishment and freedom to provide services, as well as fundamental rights – incl. freedom of expression and information.

#Hungary justice minister @JuditVarga_EU wrote an op-ed in @POLITICOEurope defending emergency powers bill which will allow the government to rule by decree. In making her argument, she revealed why critics are worried about the powers this bill will grant to #Fidesz. Thread:
Varga says other EU gov'ts have "also taken exceptional measures in response" to #coronavirus. This is true, but none, to my knowledge, have declared decree powers with no time limit or sunset clause.
She writes that HU's constitution (which #Fidesz unilaterally authored in 2012) allows emergency decrees to remain in force for 15 days, after which parliament can extend them. This bill would circumvent parliament so existing *or future* decrees would be authorized by default.

1. #Bulgaria/n #economy 101! #Thread

#Borissov's government is proud that in 2018, #GDP growth was 3.2%, but how impressive is this and should you be impressed too?
2. #Bulgaria has the lowest #GDP/capita in the #EU, but it is not that small. Our population is ca 7.1 million. What does that mean? Lack of efficiency, but not only.

Graph credit: WorldBank
3. #Bulgaria has the lowest median earnings in the #EU. In 2018, the net salary was 457 EUR. Contrast with #Romania (565 EUR), #Poland (784 EUR), and #Greece (917 EUR).

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

A palpable revival of #UniversalJurisdiction is underway in Europe.
Here are 7 examples of recent important activities (trials, arrests, investigations) that have taken place only in the last few weeks.
There are certainly more that I am unaware of.
And certainly more to come.
1. #Sweden
>> Arrest of an Iranian national allegedly involved in the #1988Massacre of thousands of detainees. First ever #UniversalJurisdiction case on #Iran to go ahead.

🚨George Kent told Congress that Trump's conversations with #Putin🇷🇺and #Hungary's president (along with @RudyGiuliani) shaped Trump's negative view of #Ukraine, changing his view of Zelenskiy from “very positive” on April 21 to “negative” 1 month later.🤬
nbcnews.com/politics/trump…
@RudyGiuliani After Trump's 1st call with Zelenskiy on April 21, Trump spoke by phone with Putin on May 3, and hosted #Hungary's far-right president Orban at the WH on May 13.

Soon thereafter, Trump's view on #Ukraine suddenly became very negative.🙄

#TrumpRussia
@RudyGiuliani Kent: “Fiona (Hill) assessed the conversations as being similar in tone and approach...Putin and Orban extensively talked #Ukraine down, said it was corrupt, said Zelenskiy was in the thrall of oligarchs...negatively shaping a picture of #Ukraine and even Zelenskiy himself.”🤬

Berlin is finally waking up to #Huawei #5G debate. If you're late to the show, here's an insightful brief by @dgapev on the dire situation in Germany. Discord even within the govt on how to address security/economy trade-off, but critical voices now from across pol spectrum.
1/5
In essence, it boils down to what we at @ECThinkTank have long argued: EU (incl Germany) cannot afford "narrow view of the issue that prioritizes short-term economic interests and fails to uphold national security and democratic values."
Well said, @dktatlow & @KaanSahinDe
2/5
From cyber-enabled espionage and data manipulation to outright disruption of critical services, horror scenarios aren't hard to imagine. #Huawei's goodwill assurances are hollow, as its susceptibility to #CCP party-state is enshrined in law, e.g. National Intelligence Law.

#Hungary , Loudly Opposed to Immigration, Opens Doors to More Foreign Workers. Premier Viktor #Orban government recently began expediting work permits amid strong growth, declining population and rising wages. My report via ⁦@WSJwsj.com/articles/hunga…
Hungarian re­cruiters now have to compete with countries like Germany for workers and of­fer free ac­com­mo­da­tion and sub­si­dized meals for immigrant labourers, as well as pro­vide in­ter­preters and re­turn trips to their home coun­tries. @WSJ wsj.com/articles/hunga…
Meanwhile, Germany still hasn’t approved a proper legal framework for labour immigration. Some recruiters say the Hungarian system for attracting skilled and semi-skilled migrant workers is better and more efficient. @WSJ wsj.com/articles/hunga…

Excellent points, Kellyanne. These are dark days for America. Trying to take guns away from innocent citizens is not the answer. Perhaps mental health is not, either. This “kid” who got an AK-47 with a 7.62 caliber was either combat trained or a hired professional.
2/ He was in black from head to toe. This was a HIT. It was PLANNED; & even crazy people can PLAN, perhaps in anticipation of #AntifaDomesticTerrorists proposed “meeting,” in #ElPasoSeptember It’s time to arrest these groups, & end the hate they engender👇🏻

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

1. Toxic masculinity killed 25 people
2. State negligence and refusal to invest in the train system continues to kill #Egyptians
Clearly, the long-running neglect by successive #Egyptian regimes of the rail network has claimed too many lives. And re yesterday’s tragedy, the long-running refusal to confront patriarchy & toxic masculinity - on state and street level - will also continue to claim lives.
A fight between 2 men killed 25 people. When I write or talk about feminism and the need to dismantle patriarchy, I hear “This isn’t the time!” When is the time? Men who benefit from patriarchy don’t care about its toll on others. It took a toll on 25 people yesterday. #Egypt
