THE ANNEXATIONS OF THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES - After annexing the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to Russia, Vladimir Putin opens negotiations: “The people have made their choice, a clear choice. The peoples of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia become our citizens forever. We urge the Kiev regime to lay down its arms, immediately stop hostilities and respect the popular will: we are ready for a discussion table. But the annexed regions are part of the Russian Federation, there is no going back'. Hence the warning: “We will defend our land with all means at our disposal.” And to those who fear the use of atomic weapons, he reminds: 'The United States was the only country in the world to have used nuclear weapons twice and they created a precedent'. While Russia vetoes the 'hostile' UN resolution on annexations, reactions are coming from all sides. Starting with Joe Biden, who ensures support for Kiev to regain possession of its territories. The leaders of the 27 EU countries echo this: 'Ukraine is exercising its legitimate right to defend itself from Russian aggression to regain full control of its territory and has the right to liberate the occupied territories within its borders internationally recognized. The nuclear threats from the Kremlin, the military mobilization and the strategy of trying to falsely present Ukrainian territory as Russian territory, claiming that the war could now take place on Russian territory, will not shake our resolve.' And Volodymyr Zelensky says on Telegram: “We have the situation under control. Everything will be Ukraine. This is our land, our people. We will never give what is ours to the occupiers.'

THE NORD STREAM CASE - Gazprom reveals that at the time of the explosion, the three offshore lines of Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 contained about 800 million cubic meters of gas. Currently, he says, there are no estimates on when and if it will work again. And to Putin's accusations of an Anglo-American terrorist attack on the plant, the president of the United States replies directly: “The gas leaks from Nord Stream were caused by a deliberate attack. What Putin says are just lies.' The sabotage also passes under the magnifying glass of the NATO secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, who calls for greater vigilance of the 'critical infrastructures'. Then he brakes on the possible entry of Ukraine into the Alliance: “The entry of a country into NATO must be decided by the allies unanimously. At the moment we are focused on giving practical support to Kiev to defend itself against the decisive invasion of Moscow'. However, the hypothesis unleashes the anger of the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova: “Everyone today chooses their own path. These accursed butchers who kill women and children go to the NATO landfill.'

MEDVEDEV'S THREATS - Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev goes further. And he writes on Telegram: “Zelensky wants to join NATO quickly. Great idea. He is only asking the Alliance to hasten the start of a third world war”. The reaction of the American national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, arrives shortly after: 'The American military in Europe are ready for any eventuality'. Within the next week, he assures, new weapons will be sent to Kiev. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, however, tends to reassure: at the moment Washington has not observed any Russian action that suggests Moscow's intention to resort to nuclear weapons.

ENERGY SAVING - Finally, agreement was reached between the European Union's energy ministers on a proposal to tackle the costs of gas and electricity. There is talk of a voluntary global reduction in gross electricity consumption and a mandatory 5% reduction in electricity consumption during peak hours. Each State will have to identify its peak hours between 1 December 2022 and 31 March 2023. But in Europe we also think about something else. The EU Commission has in fact asked to 'review' or 'revoke' the visas already issued to Russian citizens due to the changed security conditions.
