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.

PIERDE Y PAGA LA UE, GANA (por ahora) BIDEN – OTAN y El Poder de las Familias del Gas, Petróleo, Fábricas de Armas POR EL ABSURDO ERROR-HORROR DE PUTIN, AL INVADIR UCRANIA

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.

EL PENSADOR: LA PREPARACIÓN DEL POLÍTICO

There is a simple exercise -obviously simpler the more intellectual capacity and good intentions the person who undertakes it has- that citizens could do about politics, the object of so much dislike and distrust today: appeal to memory, history books and any other way that allows us to remember if it is true that the quality of those who exercise it has been progressively diminishing at least since the middle of the last century.

El Estrecho camino entre Bruselas y Samarcanda

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.
