Something odd is afoot in Europe. Britain recently has been ‘regime washed’, with a strongly pro-EU Finance Minister (Hunt) paving the passage to an election-free premiership by ‘globalist’ Rishi Sunak. Why so?

And to open channels about a new relationship deal with Brussels.

As Europe attempts to tackle the great challenges ahead, its choice lies between the republican way or that of bureaucratic centralism, Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said during the final session of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) summit in Warsaw.


 French President Emmanuel Macron’s approach to common European security, which would imply guarantees for Russia as well, does makes sense, but the European Union is not yet ready for consensus and constructive joint efforts to devise new security mechanisms, the General Director of the Russian International Affairs Council, Andrey Kortunov, told TASS on Monday.

The war in Ukraine has put the European Union’s expansion at the top of the agenda as officials from the Western Balkans and EU leaders gather Tuesday for a summit intended to reinvigorate the whole enlargement process.
