In a country delicately balancing on a fine wire so as not to rush into a crisis that could jeopardize the immediate future, there is a majority of politicians who, shamelessly, have anticipated foreseeable dates, adapting them to their anxiety and ambitions, launching into a brutal pre-election campaign.

We know that the economic and political crisis in France and Germany, Spain and Italy, in the entire EU is systemic and does not start with the invasion and the war in Ukraine. We know that Putin felt surrounded, recklessly harassed and harassed by Joe Biden, who threatened him and treated him as an outcast, to the point of making him fear for his safety and that of Russia. This did not give him any right to invade the Ukraine, since he went and goes with the trade. Putin knew it, and, even so, he made the mistake-horror of agreeing to play that Machiavellian geopolitical game of chess, with high-powered and high-precision weapons, excellent for destroying what will later be rebuilt newer and bigger, that there is no greater business than the war itself, as long as taxpayers and innocent victims pay the bills. Putin lost his sense of reality when he entered the Ukraine on February 24, 2022 like a deranged elephant in the china shop. If he wanted to defend Crimea, and the pro-Russian population of Donbass, his thing was to have put his armored divisions on alert and defense, without firing the first shot, or crossing the borders and attacking kyiv. But Putin enters the game of the USA, the maximum beneficiary, by managing to divide and break Europe, block Russia’s assets and seize its energy market in the EU, after turning Putin into Hitler, and Russia, into the incarnation of evil absolutely for the EU. NOT! for Global Village. Continúa leyendo EDITORIAL: ¡PAZ! ¡PAZ! !PAZ! POR LA HUMANIDAD STOP A LA GUERRA EN UCRANIA Y EN EL MUNDO
The war of Biden and Putin in the Ukraine regardless of how the long-awaited PEACE ends and is achieved, deals a treacherous and deadly blow to the fruitful and necessary unity of the authentic Europe from Finisterre to the Urals; of which the EU, being today the essential part, the driving force, is not and will never be the whole, and cannot be, survive and grow free and powerful even with Ukraine, if it excludes Russia, its vast territory and incalculable natural reserves.

To see the course of the war between Biden and Putin in Ukraine is to see how Putin loses the papers and all the reasons for invading it. What, the repeated failure of the USA and NATO to comply with what they promised a naïve Russia, perplexed and defenseless, when it needed to turn the page and bury the cold war, when the USSR was shipwrecked. The Maiden coup d’état -model USA- in February 1914. Zelensky’s failure to comply with the Minsk agreements and the historic and repeated encirclement and harassment by NATO, now with the support of the Ukrainian government to keep Moscow within reach of its missiles, can explain, but not justify the invasion and war in Ukraine. We have gone from bad to much worse, today, Russia with more NATO, and the EU more cold and ruin.

The EU’s path towards a price cap for Russian hydrocarbons seems difficult. A unified reading for 27 countries, with 27 different energy realities, solely on the basis of a political motion, seems hardly credible. The Italian proposal to extend the price cap to all suppliers, regardless of their nationality, is followed by four other countries, while three believe that it should only apply to Russian gas (but this would be a new sanction on Russia, not a political energy saving). As the necessary unanimity did not exist, it was postponed to the mid-October meeting. If it was supposed to be a show of determination and unity, for now it is a sign of weakness and fragmentation.
