Important move: style sanctions against officials involved in the election fraud & violence afterwards. Lukashenko's torturers & organisers must know they will be held accountable!

The world’s in a very volatile state right now. With no authority in the White House to count on, Europe must rely on its own strength and unity. Foreign ministers today have to send clear signal: diplomacy and law over threats and risks of violence

New post: The EU has become a full-blown democracy rather late; now it needs to start acting like one.

A win for and would be a great start for new transatlantic relations but by no means the end of it: EU needs to step up on defence, foreign policy, tax + plan for recovery and trade so both sides see benefits. Don’t just root for them - make it happen!

The voices of hope and change in Belarus cannot be silenced by a deaf and dying regime. EU must apply sanctions and put pressure on those responsible

With the arrest of Jimmy Lai China is driving Hong Kong further down a dead end street. Nothing to do with national security but an attempt to rule without even a show of legitimacy, let alone democracy.

Lukashenko mocked the role of women in politics. With a bit of luck Ms. Tikhanovskaya will tomorrow end the last dictatorship in Europe! ✌️✊❤️

Polish government taking the homophobic hate campaign to the next level: a full blown witch hunt for people. A gross violation of EU values and a provocation of the EU. Europe must speak out immediately and unambiguously

I have another opinion on the usefulness of sanctions, but Ai Wei Wei is absolutely right: the challenge is not just political but intellectual. Time to breathe new life into our values and the institutions that embody them

👏 to the MPs who made a stand today for the rights of LGBTI + 🏳️‍🌈 people in Poland! The Polish Government must understand - attacks against minorities are incompatible with EU membership. 🇪🇺🇵🇱

I would like regulators to take care of social media role in our democracy, not Facebook staff forums.

Facebook deletes Trump's lies, Twitter labels state propaganda for what it is. Social media companies are finally waking up, but there is a long way to go. Why are regulators so shy?

Today marks 75 years since the atomic bomb. A time to remember, so as never to repeat the past. And never take peace, freedom and multilateralism for granted.

The EU and the international community must support Beirut in every way we can to overcome this horrific disaster. To help the Lebanese people, to rebuild the port and the country.

It’s time the EU takes action: to harmonize the Covid-data and to issue one set of travelers rules. A Covid-dashboard illustrating the chaos is not enough, we need the EU at the wheel [photo ]
