A diplomatic scandal between #Romania and #Moldova broke out today. The Romanian MFA issued a strong reaction to insulting comments of the Moldovan Prime Minister on Facebook that involved Romanian politicians and implicitly the Romanian authorities (THREAD 1/4):
1. The MPE @SMuresan made a political statement on his FB account criticizing the lacking reforms in Moldova. His statements don’t represent neither the official position of the European Parliament nor of the EU or Romania. He has the right to express such opinions, but they...
have a strong political substance. The MPE Muresan refers to a report published by the @EP_ThinkTank, half of which is descriptive and points out structural deficiencies that exist in Moldova. MPE Muresan attributes The failures in reforms are attributed to the incumbent govt.

New National Security Strategy of #Poland is quite a solid and healthy document, with an adequate understanding of the current and near-future threats. it identifies the "neo-imperial policy" of #Russia as the most serious threat, "pursued also by means of military force". 1/13
2/13 It warns of an outbreak of a conflict "originating from a violent escalation as a result of an incident" due to the #Russia/n "below the threshold of war" activities that could provoke such a conflict, including an international one.
3/13 The document explicitly highlights the increase in internal tensions within the #EU/#NATO as well as actions undertaken by external entities as a "noticeable risk of undermining the coherence of the positions and actions of the member states of NATO and the EU".

In 1992, the Soviet Union and its ideological model had collapsed. While these abandoned Soviet-era and Soviet-friendly monuments have succumbed to time and natural elements, they remind us of the transformative and lasting power of ideas — both good and bad.
In Belarus, the Mound of Glory, just outside the capital of Minsk, venerates the resolve of the Red Army to free Belarus from German control during Operation Bagration, in 1944.

In Ulan Ude, Siberia, near Lake Baikal, local authorities came together in the early 1970s and did just that, creating the world’s largest Lenin head. Lenin’s massive bronze noggin is still a popular meeting place for locals today, and a big attraction for tourists as well.

Top 10 countries by projected population gains and losses by 2100. Makes for pretty grim reading for the Balkans and parts of Eastern Europe. So much of this decline is fuelled by outflow of young ppl moving abroad - a demographic time bomb.…
This map of Bosnia is particularly stark. With exception of a few urban centres in centre/north east of the country, BiH is dying. Large parts of Herzegovina & the Federation’s eastern border area register <15 people per square km. Some displaced by war; more by economic reality.
A little out of date (numbers will probably be worse now) but #Moldova is much the same. Take away Chisinau & environs (Tiraspol in Transnistria would be the same but doesn’t feature due to RU occupation), bulk of communes are severely depopulated. ~45% of pop. working abroad.

It's #WorldAIDSDay.
There were approximately 37.9 million people living with #HIV at the end of 2018.
🔹79% had been diagnosed
🔹62% were receiving treatment
🔹53% had achieved suppression of the HIV virus to the point at which they were at low risk of infecting others.
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO #DYK: HIV can now be diagnosed through rapid tests that can provide same-day results.
But no single test can provide a full #HIV diagnosis: a confirmatory test is required, conducted by a qualified and validated health worker at a community centre or clinic.
@WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO There is no cure for #HIV infection.
However, effective antiretroviral drugs can control the virus and help prevent onward transmission to other people.

#Moldova’s pro-reformist @sandumaiamd gov collapsed last week. A new phase of political instability. How it happened, what comes next for #Moldova & impact on #EasternPartnership in this thread 1/7

No-confidence vote against #Sandu gov passed by coalition partners Socialists #PSRM + highly corrupt ex-#Plahotniuc's Democrats #PD. This new covert PSRM-PD coalition in the making since summer but had no justification until last week 2/7
Trigger came in early Nov when #Sandu clashed w President #Dodon over selection process of Prosecutor General. Costs of having an independent ProsGen too high for old elites (#Dodon, #PSRM, #PD) 3/7

A couple of more words about the terribly ill-advised decision of the @coe parliamentary assembly to bend to the blackmail of the Russian government and remove sanctions against #Russia. THREAD
This decision took three years of financial blackmail, rhetorical intimidation and possibly a fair amount of corruption. #Russia succeeded in arm-twisting Europe's most prominent human rights institution to change its own rules the way it wanted them, greatly weakening CoE.
Those who voted for this stunning capitulation should be ashamed of themselves; this includes the German and the French government as well as the Council of Europe secretary general @TJagland who supported the move.

What is happening in #Moldova is essentially a coup attempt. An interest group that controls most state institutions is attempting a hostile and unlawful takeover of power from a lawfully elected government. This is my understanding of the situation. THREAD.
Yesterday the Moldovan parliament elected Maia Sandu prime minister and adopted a declaration naming Moldova a captured state. Sandu’s ACUM and the pro-Russian Socialist Party (PSRM) vowed to conduct a “de-oligarchisation” program. Read more about it here.
The Constitutional Court, controlled by Vlad Plahotniuc, Moldova’s main oligarch and de facto ruler, annulled the results immediately, arguing that the parliament should have been dissolved, because as of 7 June 90 days had passed since the announcement of election results.

It seems that more than three months after its parliamentary election, #Moldova might finally be getting a government today with Maia Sandu, probably the most honest of the country’s leading politicians, at its helm. But challenges remain. THREAD.…
Sandu will lead a minority government that relies on the support of the pro-Russian Socialist Party (PSRM). In exchange of the PSRM’s support, Sandu’s ACUM coalition backed the election of former PM Zinaida Greceanii as speaker.…
The PSRM is led by Igor Dodon, staunchly pro-Russian and extremist, a friend of the World Congress of Families and very much part of the endemic corruption that has defined Moldovan politics in the past years. Read my profile of him from 2017 here.…

@INETeconomics By a chance, the article saying #MMT "theorists ignore how their policies could hurt developing countries" places #Ukraine currency #hryvnia (notes of 20 hryvnia's) as its cover picture.

@INETeconomics Btw, another time when #MMT-related literature opted by a mere chance to associate itself with #Ukraine's currency was the book 'Can "It" Happen Again?' written by Hyman Minsky (2nd ed published in 2016).

This time there is a jar of coins 5 kopecks each (5 #копійок).

@INETeconomics I am #Ukrainian, having a 22-year experience in the Ukraine's financial sector (1995-2017) and working full-day jobs first as bank officer doing debts/credits and then as research economist. I worked in the banking sector as well as in the non-banking financial sector.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
