EVOLUTION OF DIPLOMACY. "Nothing about 🇺🇦without 🇺🇦" is extremely important for the Ukrainian nation. But it also serves the interests of other nations because it doesn't allow 🇷🇺to turn its aggression against Ukraine into a broader confrontation with 🇺🇸.
It's a failed attempt of #Moscow to impose the great power competition scheme and trade its "cooperation" on global issues for allowing it to re-establish spheres of influence in Europe that justified the "suspension" of their participation in the new #START Treaty.
There are no immediate negative consequences of such a decision, and, highly likely, there won't be any in the future, for a new nuclear arms race for Moscow would mean old results – a state collapse.

Last yr #UkraineWar became the organizing principle of Russian foreign policy

➡️7 trends
1 Full turn to non-West
2 China’s junior partner
3 Less leverage vis middle powers
4 Struggle in the neighbourhood
5 Russia MFA sidelined
6 Wagner normalized
7 End of compartmentalization
1. Full turn to the non-West:
Judging its break with the West to be total & irreversible, Russia's leadership has intensified its (pre-existing) turn to #MENA, #Africa, #LATAM, #Asia-Pacific.

Shunned & sanctioned, Russia needs to make up for losses wherever it can... (2/22)
This year, Lavrov already visited 8 African states, Iraq, & hosted Pakistani & Egyptian FMs.

Russia's push to expand engagement does resonate.

🧵1) Rinnovo la mia piena solidarietà alla competente collega @transit_star per la gogna social ricevuta ieri per un suo articolo sugli effetti del #neoliberismo in #Iran.
Mi permetto di dire due cose in merito al tema, perché mai come oggi è centrale per comprendere >>>
2) i meccanismi sociali all'interno dei paesi periferici, in particolare nei arabi o a maggioranza musulmana.
Ma prima alcune cose preliminari di approccio secondo me doverose.
A partire dal 2001, dopo gli attentati alle Torri Gemelle, è tornato all'interno del dibattito>>>
3) il cd neo-orientalismo che tende a dividere tra civiltà (noi) e inciviltà (loro). Al di là dei luoghi comuni questo ha avuto due effetti: uno all'interno dei paesi dell'area e l'altro nella politica estera dei paesi occidentali.…

So where do I start, I guess by saying everything I thought would happen for #VLRM and where the sp would be has been delayed by basically a year, with the GFSC approval taking longer than anticipated. So what does that mean now?!
Well for starters it has been de-risked with Valereum Approved to Acquire Gibraltar Stock Exchange expected to be completed 1st quarter of 2023 just for starters!!
In addition @Valereum will be launching its NFT strategy in the 1st quarter of next year linking real world assets via NFT ownership.
I'm expecting at least some news on NFTs partners / tech/ launch strategy this year in 2022!

For the first time in its history, the @IEA sees #fossilfuel demand peaking across all of its projections including the “business as usual” (STEPS) scenario. What does it mean for geoeconomics & geopolitics of the global #energytransition? A🧵1/13…
The dependency on #fossilfules is a risk to economic resilience & energy security inherent to the currently dominant economic models. High #coal, #oil and #gas prices have knock-on effects beyond energy systems reliability & fuel the global #polycrisis. 2/13
#EU, #UK, #Japan and others embedded a fatal vulnerability into their growth models as they bet on boosting #gas intensity of their economies post Global #Oilcrisis in the 1970s. Now they are forced to pay a high price for this oversight. 3/13

The imperative that we must not waver in supporting #Ukraine is reinforced by a factor we often overlook in our #West-centric bubble:

#Russia is not isolated globally.

Pushing back against Russia thus 1) takes extra effort & 2) is of strategic importance beyond #Ukraine (1/11)
For proof that #Russia is not isolated, look toward big parts of Asia, LatAm, Africa, Middle East. Voting patterns at #UNGA. Who hasn’t joint sanctions against #Russia. How media beyond the "West" reports on the war in #Ukraine. And most of all: Look at #China and #India. (2/11)
Let’s take #MiddleEast: Sure, there’s few staunch supporters of #Russia (Syria). Most "sit on the fence": Reluctant to join sanctions; Saudis/UAE won't pump more oil; Even #NATO ally (!) #Turkey & closest US ally #Israel tread cautiously due to security concerns vis Russia (3/11)

Con't this prev thread.

Additionally, the increasing air superiority Russia enjoys in the east makes it difficult or impossible for large Ukrainian formations to move around in the east. Blown rail lines, bridges & incoming muddy season makes supply in the east difficult.
Russia has reversed many of its problems and heaped them on Ukraine by this withdrawal. It can regain the initiative and if it uses it intelligently, can deliver what is seen as a clear victory. However, it remains to be seen how drastic its withdrawal would be. Given the little
information available to me, compared to the Russian command, I would make this a fake withdrawal from the east bank. A sign that this at least being considered was the recent conquest of #Slavutych. Amazingly, the troops coming out of Belarus on the east bank could only approach Image

#Ukraine Volunteer Breaks Down, Finds Out #War Is Not a Video Game


via @YouTube & @richimedhurst
Let me offer a 3rd pint, middle ground position, to the dichotomy raised by @richimedhurst in recruitment of these mercenaries for Ukraine.

I say this as one who has recruited staff for many emergency relief ops (tho not mercenaries) in #Africa and #MENA. 1/n

The terrible truth is, #Putin know that the West will NEVER in his lifetime have such a poor political AND military leadership for a decade at least, and he's not getting any younger. (/) @Halsrethink @nglinsman @BRyvkin @RobertMCutler @amlivemon @vtchakarova
Even countries who traditionally compensate a small military instrument with either technology/ training (Israel) or "Élan" (France) are hampered now.
If anything, what hampers #Putin, ironically, is *NOT* his adversaries.(/)
No, his BIG problem is... his friends, namely #Iran and #China.
Even if he could extort a standstill on other theaters, he cannot act on the premise that it would be honored if he didn't succeed (he plans to win), but most importantly should he WIN.(/)

Tomorrow, American and Iraqi delegations will sit down for Strategic Dialogue talks.

This is a big moment for the #US-#Iraq relationship with a new Biden administration and accumulating security concerns in Iraq.
The talks are intended to cover shared #US and #Iraq mutual interests across a range of topics, such as improvements in trade, development, aid, Iraq’s education, industrial, and health sectors, climate issues, and of course, the elephant in the room: security.
The #Biden administration has not been very clear on their #Iraq strategy, despite campaign trail commitments to defeat #Daesh and the US missile strike on a Kataib Hezbollah (KH) and Kaitaib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS) compound near the #Syria-Iraq border over a month ago.

To celebrate the #WomensHistoryMonth we are back with #HerstorywithCFWIJ! Today we celebrate six more amazing women voices in journalism. Some of whom paved the way, and others who are making them proud! (1/8) Image
First, let's go to #Canada and remember #EllaCoraHind! A journalist, an activist, and a suffragist. She was turned down for a position as a journalist #ManitobaFreePress, because of being an inexperienced woman journalist. Ella proved them wrong! #HerstorywithCFWIJ (2/8) Image
Carrying the torch is #Canada's @Kathygannon, a reporter at #AssociatedPress stationed in #Afghanistan and #Pakistan. Kathy has been attacked in her line of work, yet she marches on. Here is what she had to say in celebration of women journalists #HerstorywithCFWIJ (3/8).

Empezamos el segundo día de nuestras #VIJornadasOCUD con un encuentro con @MartinezSoliman, el Director de la @AECID_es.

Presenta @pastorams, Directora del #OCUD y Vicerrectora de Globalización y Cooperación de la @UOCuniversitat.

¡Seguro que se genera un debate interesante!
Empieza @MartinezSoliman, Director de @AECID_es, reconociendo la labor de las facultades de medicina de las universidades de @CrueUniversidad en compartir el conocimiento con las universidades latinoamericanas durante la crisis de la pandemia de la #COVID19.

Continua el Director de @AECID_es haciendo una profunda autocrítica sobre la situación actual del sistema de @CooperacionESP: hay problemas de recursos, de coordinación entre actores y de coherencia. Por eso la reforma deberá ser profunda y estructural.
