Zelensky: “Portugal is with us, thank you”

Portugal backs Ukraine’s candidacy for the EU. 

Zelensky thanks Portugal for supporting Ukraine's candidacy

Diário de Notícias on the mainland reports that Volodymyr Zelensky thanked Portugal for supporting Ukraine’s candidacy for the European Union.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked each of the 27 heads of state or government gathered in Brussels at the European summit, where they granted Ukraine’s Candidate Status, in the long process of accession to the European Union.

In an intervention by videoconference, for the European Council, from Kiev, Zelensky said he believed that the “positive ties” with the Portuguese government would strengthen and thanked the support given to Ukraine’s candidacy.

“Portugal is with us. Thank you, Prime Minister. Your country knows our people well. I am sure that we will only increase the positive ties between us”, said the Ukrainian president, in his speech to Brussels, moments after the decision was made known. of 27.

Later, in a press conference, the Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa promised to “continue to strengthen the bilateral cooperation that we have established”, with Ukraine, “namely in technical support in support of this candidacy process”.

“Portugal, as President Zelensky said, will continue to provide support” in the accession process, said Costa, referring to the brief words of the Ukrainian head of state.

The Portuguese prime minister hopes that it will be “a process conducted in a loyal, committed and correct way”, as “the attribution of this candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova constitutes an enormous responsibility for the European Union, not to create false expectations, of not generating frustrations that will necessarily be a bitter future in our relationship”.

Now that a new chapter towards accession is opening, António Costa wants to see the expectations created in the people of the two countries accompanied by “responsibility” on the European side.

  1. Zelensky is an actor and a Davos/WEF puppet.

    Funny how the banner says “stand for peace”, yet Zelensky is constantly asking for “more weapons”.

    Wars (real or fake) are ALWAYS good for business. Arms dealers are having a lucrative and continuous payday. Pretty soon they’ll catch up with the Pharma profits, but we’ll never get to see THOSE reports. And after the arms dealers have had their field day, on we go with the “rebuilding” business. Same shit, different century.

        I AM concerned about lost and destroyed lives, that’s why I’m making my points in the first place.

        War is a business. Pharma is a business. Even states are corporate, for-profit entities. ALL of them, including Russia and China and the East and the West, etc… It’s sad and people do NOT like to hear it, yet it’s true. Bury your heads in the sand if it feels better. But doing so doesn’t change reality.

        Farewell for now…

            I don’t need anyone to “bow down” to me or to anyone, for that matter. Neither do I claim to be “enlightened”.

            But at least my eyes are open. And I can see you’re triggered. We all have some growing (and deprogramming) to do.

            Alternatively, you could explain to us how exactly Wars and Pharma are not all about profit?

      • @FredS: How charmingly naive of you to believe that all those players are on different “sides”, whereas in fact they are ALL getting their “marching orders” from the same puppet masters. Those “world leaders” who stop playing ball are eliminated. Lincoln and Kennedy in the US, Noriega in Panama, Sadat in Egypt, Qaddafi in Libya, Saddam in Iraq, Rabin in Israel, the list goes on. What kind of idyllic fantasy world do you believe to live in?

        Farewell for now…

        • So, to get back to the article, this is about Portugal supporting a country that has been invaded and whose towns, cities and people are being systematically destroyed by another country. Your comments seem to suggest that you are against Ukraine defending itself. Interestingly, and very tellingly, you express no disapproval at the country that invaded, using military force and supporting the very arms dealers you decry.

          • Ukraine has always been known for its oligarchs, corruption and persecution of political opponents.
            “The European Thailand on the Dnieper” – and that also includes prostitution.

            Zelensky as a comedian exposed this in a long running TV series. It is available on Youtube.
            Some time later that was the reason why he got elected by decent voters, but unfortunately he failed in the struggle against all that.
            Let us hope that Zelensky has come out of this war more determined and even more supported.

              If elections truly mattered, they would be illegal by now.

              The “PTB” have been long planning a transition from “hard power” to “soft power”, especially in the “former” communist block. Best slaves are those who believe they’re free.

  2. @Caroline: I am against ALL war (and the inevitable profiteering that accompanies it). I am nor “for” ANY so-called “side”. I am against war and mind control and bullshit propaganda, no matter which “government” it’s coming from. Russian propaganda is equally bullshit as any other.

    Actually, according to the latest in Russian bullshit propaganda and fear-mongering:

    London will be first to be bombed in World War Three, says Russian TV propagandist as he rails against West and claims ‘it’s clear the threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons’

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10949677/London-bombed-World-War-Three-says-Russian-TV-propagandist-rails-against-West.html

    @Hardly: “protecting the feeble minded against themselves” – that’s the government’s “job”.

    @Hardly: Anarchy is not the absence of rules, it’s the absence of rulers. It requires a high level of self-responsibility, which most people are currently lacking, i.e. thinking and connecting dots for themselves as opposed to blindly obeying the propaganda machine. See Orwell.

    @FredS: There is no need to prove that which is self-evident, if only we pull our heads out of the sand. You guys are making ostriches proud!

        Also watch the movie Wag the Dog. It is very explicit in showing how wars are created or at least greatly inflated by media manipulation.

        And leave the REAL genocide to the Pharma Industry. It’s been their specialty for a long time.

                    Ever heard of “divide & conquer”? Did you ever bother to read George Orwell? First get yourself some proper, non-corporate education, and then we can talk for real. Until that happens, all our exchanges here are like pissing in the wind (or in the ocean).

      Says the fake woman that had never heard of her fellow countryman Nestor Ivanovych Makhno (Ukrainian: Не́стор Івáнович Махно́,) – I posted this long before the russian invasion – I got no answer, other then ridicule.

      I repeat: Suzy, you are giving a bad name to anarchists.

          Did you learn anything?

          Now google again.
          You might understand who was the “Bronstein” (also ukranian) that I mentioned before (the man that Махно́ fought against.)

            Bronstein is more difficult to google then Makhno. So many Bronsteins.
            I understand.

            I also understand that you never heard of him in your home country the U SS R – and no surprise that Putain (pardon my French….) compares himself to Peter rather then to Lev, allthough all 3 of them military men.

            History can be fascinating.

                  Is the US not a SERIAL warmonger? Yes or no.

                  Did the Brits not start wars of conquest all over the world? Yes or no.

                  Did the Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, French, Germans, Romans, Macedonians, Mongols, etc.. not do the same at various points in time? Yes or no.

                  Did indigenous populations not get massacred and genocided by all of the above in the name of empire building and expansion? Yes or no.

                  How can any SANE person take SIDES in this game of sheer INSANITY?

  3. I believe that Bitcoin is currently 17th: https://companiesmarketcap.com/assets-by-market-cap/

    The war machine “Military Industrial Complex” is enabled by taxation of the populace
    We can therefore surmise that the removal of taxation would drastically curtail military spending

    The Satoshi, DEFi and the rest is on course to obliterate the retail and centralized banking
    The replacement is financial freedom via self governance and sovereignty

    Take away their control of fiat currency and you take away their ability to project military power

    This is the NEW way forward

      Very true.

      And it would also drastically curtail education/ public health/ policing/ living one step ahead of neanderthalers.

      Of course, I realise this post flies way over the heads of neanderthalers.
      And WoooW – I did not use “nutty” in a reply to you.

      1. We fist bought BTC when we learned more about how the fraudulent debt-based fiat money system operates, and especially since it was only a few years after the 2008 crisis and later the Cyprus bank “heist”. It was much more of an “ideologically” driven act, rather than driven by any sort of “greed”. BTC is NOT perfect in any way. But it provides solutions to some of the problems of fiat money and even precious metals and other commodities. It has a limited supply, i.e. no more BTC can be printed/conjured out of thin air. Unlike fiat and metals, it can be easily moved and transacted with. Also, the owners hold the keys, giving them total control of the BTC wallets, as opposed to some bank or some storage vault. The list goes on. And for those who want truly and fully private transactions, Monero (XMR) is the best choice IMO.

      2. I’m not “hard done” and still have much to learn. Our main current priorities is to have a Plan B (possibly in Mexico) in case the Euro Zone implodes. We need to learn more about gardening and permaculture, off-grid energy production, completely (not just partially) stepping out of the banking system and the political system, etc, etc, etc… Sometimes I feel like a teenager who’s journey has only just begun…

    3. BTC is NOT the same as most other so-called “cryptocurrencies”. Many of those “altcoins” are centralized (such as ETH, who literally has a CEO). Many altcoins are pre-mined BEFORE being introduced to the public, so they can be “pumped & dumped” at the expense of greedy, get-rich-quick hopefuls, who almost always get liquidated and pushed out of the markets. The latest example is Luna, which was a scam ponzi coin from the start. We never bought any, although I know a few “players” who made quite a bit of money before it got rug-pulled.

    4. We started buying BTC in the early 2010s, mostly for ideological reasons (as itcost verry little in those early days), and never sold any EXCEPT when we needed to make a larger purchase, such as real estate. Some of the BTC (a small percentage) is held in a few dividend-paying schemes, which so far have proven 90% reliable and enough for a modest but decent monthly income, so we were able to free ourselves from “working for a living”, and working for ourselves instead. We never really expected BTC to go so far, and even if it implodes, we also don’t keep “all our eggs in one basket”. We always keep learning. Sometimes one needs a rocket, sometimes one needs a parachute. We try our best to have both.

    Some of you here are particularly whiny and constantly bickering about your oh-so-delicate linguistics sensitivities.

    Well, I say you’re hypocrites! Especially as you have no problem with calling people “nutty”, implying they’re “whores” or saying they were “down wind from Chernobyl”.

    What’s the difference between typing shit or sh*t?
    What’s the difference between typing fuck and f*ck?

    It all reads and means the same!

    It’s like the prude Americans who say darn instead of damn and friggin’/frickin’ instead of fuckin’.

    How the frack did you all become so gosh-darn prude! Dagnabit!
