The European proxy warfare in Ukraine, in opposition to Russia, is wanting increasingly more like a black TV comedy collection daily.
First we had the French Caesar Howitzers, despatched by President Macron to arm Kiev. Two have been bought by Russian intelligence brokers from Ukrainian troopers, on the black market. The Russian arms producer Uralvagonzavod, which produces, amongst different issues, Armata tanks and Msta-S self-propelled artillery mounts, thanked President Macron warmly for the self-propelled weapons (€5 million every), which they’re now finding out.

For a handful of bitcoins

Subsequent, fairly dependable media report that the ever resourceful Ukrainians have offered no less than one and presumably two of the eighteen very particular HIMAR rocket launchers despatched at huge expense by america to cease the Russians and their autonomist Donbass allies and even trigger them to retreat. The sale value was allegedly $880,0000, money after all. In response to Russian sources information of such a transaction is delayed to allow the Ukrainians involved to get some bitcoins to their households and get them overseas earlier than the information is launched. The ‘excessive’ value Is related with the accompanying software program and ammunition for an extra $330,000. The weapons and equipment, it appears, are left discretely in disputed territory for assortment. Contemplating that every launcher prices round $5.5 million and the rockets are between $3-5 million every the Russians didn’t over pay.
NATO has in the meantime enthusiastically given away all its spare weapons to Ukraine after which some. Fairly how they’re going to equip their new (imaginary?) 300,000 man fast response drive within the occasion of warfare with Russia is unclear.

Ruffle in Europe

On the political entrance there is no such thing as a scarcity of issues… within the West. The coalition governing Italy is crumbling with the desertion of the 5 Star occasion and the EU appointed Prime Minister Mario Draghi has introduced his resignation to President Sergio Mattarella, who’s even older than President Biden. Draghi gained his vote of no confidence however resigned anyway as a result of the circumstances to manipulate “not exist”. Think about the frustration of this a lot tried 74 yr outdated, when he was despatched again to his workplace and his resignation was refused. All that cash from Goldman Sachs plus enormous pensions and he can’t retire and spend it. In any respect prices an election should be prevented and the Euro protected.
Germany is reeling from the alleged presence of Chancellor Scholtz at a rape occasion. Sure, you learn that proper, not a rave occasion. The power saga there’s a comedy all by itself. Don’t need Russian gasoline; should have Russian gasoline; can’t get Russian gasoline. On prime of that the ungrateful Ukrainian ambassador referred to as Scholz a “sulky German sausage”. Worst of all you now should pay $18 a month to modify on the seat heater in your new BMW, or so we’re instructed – we will’t afford one.

The russophobic United Kingdom

For sure France now prospers below a minority authorities. Estonia has misplaced its very belligerent Prime Minister. No want to say, the terminal issues confronted by the UK’s can be Churchillian warfare chief, Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Even the try to ban Russians from Wimbledon failed with a Russian girl profitable the Girls singles below the Kazakhstan flag. Sadly for the Russo phobic UK, the Moscow born and bred tennis participant, Elena Rybakina, didn’t tackle international citizenship in 2019 as a result of she hates Putin however as a result of the neighboring Kazakhs pay higher and are very eager on tennis. It was additionally the primary ultimate by which neither participant was from the West. Is that this an omen?

The euro at parity with the greenback

In Russia, regardless of the most effective efforts of the Russian Central Financial institution, the Ruble has surged once more to beneath 60 to the greenback, stronger than earlier than the warfare began. Because the Germans discovered with the Deutsche Mark, having a really extremely valued foreign money could be inconvenient. In the meantime the Euro has fallen to parity with the greenback for the primary time since 2002. No one in France appears to keep in mind that in 2017 presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was ridiculed for saying {that a} 15% devaluation was acceptable should you needed to depart the Euro.
On the sanctions entrance, NATO allies Germany and Canada have been combating over the blocking of important gear for gasoline pipeline Nord Stream 1, despatched by Siemens to their Canadian division for repairs (why?). The Canadians wouldn’t give it again and the Germans needed to insist fairly firmly to vary their minds. Or maybe to vary Washington’s thoughts. For the second there is no such thing as a gasoline in any respect coming via both Nord Stream 1 or 2. The EU is now for the primary time utilizing dearer US gasoline than low cost dependable Russian gasoline.

The Russian enclave of Kaliningrad

Lithuania has been bullied by Brussels to cease blockading items travelling between mainland Russia and the Baltic Russian enclave of Kaliningrad and has now agreed to permit most items via. It appears the concept that the Russians may blockade all of the Baltic States was a little bit of a fear, however not practically as a lot a fear because the menace to withdraw recognition of Lithuania’s frontiers. This is able to have meant that Russia not acknowledged the exterior borders of the European Union.
Bloomberg tells us that the EU is now planning gasoline rationing for the winter. In the meantime meals and gas costs rise alarmingly.

Ursula von der Leyen, a Russian agent?

In Russia, then again, the estimated fall in Russian Gross Home Product (PIB in French), on account of sanctions, has come down from minus 15% to twenty% to round minus 3.5%. Manufacturing output is selecting up and costs are starting to fall, with document oil and gasoline revenues for decrease gross sales volumes. No rationing envisaged there.
One may fairly ask if Fee President Ursula Van der Leyen is a Russian agent, given the financial injury to the EU she has presided over since she took workplace lower than three years in the past?
It will, nonetheless, be silly to recommend that sanctions should not disturbing the Russian financial system and employment in some areas.
Plainly the Mozart of Finance, and France’s monetary Napoleon, Bruno Le Maire could have been proper in any case, that the Russian financial system is about to break down. As he instructed us when the warfare started, “The stability of financial and monetary power is completely in favor of the European Union, which is within the technique of discovering its financial energy”. Particularly In some import sectors, there may be actual misery in Russia. Media outlet MK reviews a critical incident in Moscow – ‘prison on pink scooter, and armed with shotgun, robbed Muscovite of his dildo.’ Determined males determined measures.
In the meantime in Ukraine hundreds are dying.
