THREAD: TTF month-ahead prices jumped from a low at €23/MWh early June to an intraday high at almost €50/MWh yesterday. In the weekly @Energyscan_egm podcast, I discuss about the main drivers behind this spectacular rebound #gas #LNG #ONGT 1/10…
First element behind the rally has been the reduction in #LNG supply to Europe, following the drop in TTF prices below Asian spot LNG prices that opened some arbitrage opportunities. Nevertheless, Europe LNG supply still sits at healthy levels. 2/10 Image
Then the planned outage affecting the Nyhamna gas processing plant in #Norway with a 80 mm cm/day impact on export capacity has been extended twice: by a week on June 9 and then by 24 days on June 13. 3/10…

Well, let’s have a look at @NobelPrize Twitter handle if they’re paying tribute to this great man, who was awarded the Nob Peace Prize in 2010, but was prevented by China from attending the prize ceremony.

Sadly it looks salmon export 2 China has very negative impacts on Norway.
Here you go. Beijing issuing clear cut threats to Oslo on Norwegian soil in 2020.

And then Thorbjørn Jagland, former chair of Norwegian Nobel Committee writes in his book that he experienced “strong pressure” from his Labour Party leader @jonasgahrstore, current Prime Minister,who wanted Jagland not to award Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo.…

Day 462 of #Europe's war, the last day of May.

Mercifully a quiet morning so far this Wednesday in #Ukraine

This is my 462nd daily thread.
All the info you need about #Russia's attack in one handy thread, updated throughout the day.

You can support me with a coffee (see bio)🙏
If you happen to have missed all yesterday's news, put the kettle on and prepare for a long read!

Here's the link for yesterday's thread on what happened in #Ukraine and #Russia.

The biggest event overnight happened in #Russia's #Krasnodar region.

Drones hit the Afipsky Oil Refinery and a fire soon took hold, although it's since been extinguished; no-one was hurt.

About 150km from the front, that's less fuel helping Russia kill Ukrainians.

Killer whales are hunting & sinking ships near Spain.

And may be teaching others how.

Some researchers speculate it may be a new whale fad.

The Orca equivalent of a TikTok challenge.

@sipappas… ImageImageImageImage
"two juvenile killer whales went after the rudder while an adult repeatedly rammed the boat... The attack lasted 90 minutes"

They know what they are doing.

Pics of aftermath. You can see an emergency pump running.

1/ The head of @FIIA_fi, @MikaAaltola, warns that in the long run, #Russia will try to turn #Finland into a ”different and special” #NATO member, something between #Hungary and #Norway.

This is noteworthy as there is a cabinet formation process going on in Helsinki.

2/ In Hungary, Russia used three important tools to increase her influence, eventually enabling Orbán’s autocratization:

1) Demoralization in front of the totalitarian heritage (inadequate #lustration)
2) Corrupt networks of the ancien regime
3) Organized crime with Russian ties Image
3/ While Finland was never a communist dictatorship, all the elements above were present in the country after the Cold War.

#Finlandization turned into #PostFinlandization, protecting local #KGB-connected elites. Staying outside #NATO made the problem even more dangerous. Image

NEW: 11 countries ink joint statement on countering commercial #spyware proliferation & abuse.

Cite "fundamental" national security & foreign policy interest 1/

🇦🇺#Australia 🇨🇦#Canada 🇨🇷#CostaRica 🇩🇰#Denmark 🇫🇷#France 🇳🇿#NewZealand 🇳🇴#Norway 🇸🇪#Sweden 🇨🇭#Switzerland 🇬🇧#UK 🇺🇸#US We, the governments of Aust...The misuse of these tools p...To advance these interests,...engaging additional partner...
2/ I'd say the joint statement on commercial #spyware is unprecedented.

A few years ago spyware like #Pegasus was was treated as a human rights issue.

But the dizzying speed of proliferation made big problems for governments, forcing them to prepare positions & action.
3/ The statement's commitment guardrails for accountable domestic #spyware use is important.

But devil will be in the implementations. Civil society will be watching.

(Note: issue wasn't covered in White House Spyware Executive Order on Monday, so nice to see USA commit here) Image

#Ukraine: 2. At #Kreminna RU once again carried out unsuccessful attacks at #Novoselivske & #Bilohorivka, otherwise no change. #tweet100 (Map: @mhmck)
#Ukraine: 3. Heavy fighting continues in the NW & S sectors of #Bakhmut, with UA forces pushing away RU troops at #Ivanivske despite increased pressure. UA has evacuated all children from #ChasivYar to a safer place. #tweet100

Hello again, welcome to a new week, a new thread and Day 390 of #Russia's full invasion of its peaceful neighbour.

Updated throughout the day with only the relevant news from #Ukraine and beyond, this is your one-stop guide for the war in Europe.
If you need a catch up on Sunday, here's the link.

Interestingly a couple of people wrote to say my tweets weren't showing up again in their timeline. Sunday saw the fewest views, likes and retweets I can remember 😥


In a review of the week, #Ukraine's armed forces claim they hit 5 of #Russia's military bases in the occupied territory plus 5 ammunition stores.

The graphic is in Russian but even if you don't understand you can see where the hits were.

There's been criticism of the detail (esp re #Poland, which has already delivered Leos) - but @JeremyCliffe's main point is right.
▶️I'd actually take it further (it's not about #Germany but about #Ukraine), which is why we need to talk about #Finland🧵…
I've repeatedly praised #Finland's approach to standing up #Russia & have written on its own #Zeitenwende in joining #NATO.
I've also repeatedly praised @MarinSanna as a figurehead of #NeoIdealism - who's been wonderfully clear on how & why #Ukraine must win & RU must lose
So, to be clear, this is not a general critique of🇫🇮or '🇫🇮 bashing'!
- BUT on the tank issue, I think #Finland has got it wrong.
- According to public info they have agreed to send
3 Patria Leopard2R heavy mine breaching tanks
-But NO #Leopard2 MBTs…

Countries in the Global South are sensible and pragmatic, and act in the best interests of their people, unlike Western nations which, today, are acting on ideological impulses and often against the best interests of their people. A 🧵. (1/16)
That's why #China will support #Russia economically but not provide it with weapons. They know Russia can win this war on their own, so long as they are supported economically. China will continue to provide technological assistance/dual use items, such as semiconductors. (2/16)
They will buy huge quantities of pipeline gas, #LNG, and oil, because that is a win-win strategy. China needs to develop #Tibet and #Xinjiang and needs cheap energy; Russia needs money and goods that China can produce cheaply. This partnership has defeated US sanctions. (3/16)

Hello again. It's Day 369 of the war. #Russia's 10-day war on #Ukraine that is.

Hope your week starts well. It wasn't a great start for Ukrainians with a drone attack as the new week began, but as I write no feared cruise missile attack although there is a warning as I type...
Sunday proved to be quite a newsworthy day concerning #Ukraine, meaning more work for me, including a 4 page essay for Elon Musk - still no reply yet!

To see what you missed, take a scroll back through daily thread number 368 right here:

Much lower losses again for #Russia in the figures published daily by #Ukraine.

Is it the weekend lag or a case of fewer suicidal waves of Russkiy lemmings trying to take #Bakhmut, #Vuhledar et al?

Looks pretty certain now to hit 150k dead soldiers on the first day of spring. Image

I was planning to later release some details on how far the US government went against my peers around the world and myself.

As it turns out a couple of these details have become public knowledge. While the Americans where screaming "Russia!" and "Election Meddling" they (..)
(..) were the actual meddlers. From before we know of the CIA publicly promising to mess up the UK Labor Party.

After getting near total control over @Twitter they used that position to take out a very large account supporting human rights, in #Catalonia and everywhere else.
In this context, the Pirate Party of Catalonia gets an honorable mention, as their account have been throttled hard. I'm thinking the Americans did the Madrid fascists a favor by silencing the Catalan peoples voices.

In #Norway, the Americans simply canceled all election ()

⭐️Seymour Hersh interview with Fabian Scheidler for the Berliner Zeitung

⭐️Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has published an investigation about attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines by US and Norway

1. Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has published an investigation showing that the attacks on the #NordStream pipelines were initiated by the US government with the support of Norway. The #US government and the #CIA have denied his account at Hersh's request. https://seymourhersh.substa...
2. Q1. Mr. Hersh, please explain your findings in detail. According to your source, what exactly happened, who was involved in the #NordStream attack and what were the motives?
Seymour Hersch: - It was a story that cried out to be told. At the end of September 2022,

Seems #Germany is upset about the limited number of #Leopard donors to #Ukraine. While I have long been arguing for more aid to Ukraine, I'm somewhat unsure what exactly is the core of the criticism in this case.
The decision to approve exports was good, and #Scholtz et al. deserve credit for it. At the same time, it took months longer than it had to. This discrepancy is at the heart of (at least my) criticism towards #Germany.
Make no mistake, Germany does *a lot*, but every step is accompanied by hand-wringing and vocal concerns about the risk of escalation, which undercut the diplomatic part of it.
