War is back in Europe

Vladimir Putin has declared war on Ukraine.


What had not been said previously, again for superstition, is that that stalemate brought back a dramatic historical precedent: "The Munich conference", held on 29 and 30 September 1938, between the leaders of the United Kingdom and France; Neville Chamberlain and Édouard Daladier respectively and of Germany and Italy, respectively Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The agreement deluded the democratic powers, especially Chamberlain, that the principle of self-determination of peoples, which emerged after the First World War, would be applied. Hitler was prevented from annexing all of Czechoslovakia, but only small portions, thinking that this would satisfy his expansionist aims.

History was quite another! Just like the outcome of the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop agreement, between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany who signed a non-aggression pact.

Among the many unclear things in this absurdity, one leaps strongly in plain sight: what kind of media coverage is there in the area and what will there be? The headlines of the first few hours show a dystonia in the information that at least leaves us perplexed; CNN talks about hundreds of deaths, the BBC, as ANSA reports, announces seven people dead and nine others who were injured as a result of the Russian bombing in Ukraine; there are also 19 missing. It is difficult to extricate oneself from these contradictory news.

Putin shows all his muscles: "We will punish those who interfere, we will denazify Ukraine". The West replies with a tongue: "We will protect the allies", but perhaps it was better to "protect them" before the invasion.

Here we should talk about the role of NATO and that of Europe, but for now let's postpone. The fact remains that if the Moscow stock exchange has lost 30%, Europe finds itself with an energy price increase of 40% and when transport begins to stop, unsustainable social conflicts arise.

We all lose and no one will win!

Just as it remains a mystery why, today, a war made up of bombings, tanks, invasion troops is conceivable, when Russia has at its service the "baddest hackers in the world", who would only need a couple of clicks to bring Ukraine to its knees economically.

In this dirty story no one can declare himself innocent, if Putin occupied Crimea and claims to protect Donbass, NATO has the ambition to position itself in Ukraine, forgetting when the world found itself on the brink of World War III for the missiles of the USSR in Cuba.

Finally, for these first words, we must consider the fact that if Russia is a giant in terms of armament, in reality it is a dwarf in economic terms and this is a fundamental weapon for Western diplomacy, if it will be able to move compactly.
