‘Putin Wished Much less NATO. He Acquired Extra NATO.’ Atlantic (resilc). The triumphalism appears untimely. Putin’s “much less NATO” was much less NATO on Russia’s borders. Recall that Ukraine was NATO lite, with its navy educated to NATO requirements. Despite the fact that Russia remains to be understandably sensitive about NATO members with missiles as neighbors, the SMO has revealed NATO to be a paper tiger. On high of that, the EU is immolating itself on its Russia financial sanctions and its members doubtless gained’t have the dough or public assist to rearm (see this anecdata from the UK).

FWIW, the Russian International Ministry reaffirmed that Nord Stream gasoline can be provided as normal as soon as scheduled routine upkeep was accomplished (see right here within the weekly press convention on July 14). However on July 15, Wolfgang Munchau, who was as soon as believed to be a reporter, utterly misrepresents Zakharova in his July 15 publish.

Unique: Russia’s Gazprom declares pressure majeure on some gasoline provides to Europe Reuters (BC). This story went dwell yesterday AM early. Because it reads, the motion applies to all of 1 EU buyer, and recall that Gazprom prospects are often personal utilities, and sometimes a couple of per EU nation. So there are a number of them. Recall additionally that Putin points a decree that offered for particular financial retaliatory measures. The preliminary targets had been varied Gazprom Germania subsidiaries and JV companions, presumably as a result of Gazprom Germania was nationalized by Germany after which stole Gazprom belongings, resembling storage models. In step with this being a slender motion, I didn’t see this story featured at Bloomberg, the Monetary Occasions, the Wall Avenue Journal, nor talked about on the Russian International Ministry, Kremlin, TASS or Interfax websites.
