Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
obektivno.bg | Western leaders gathered for a secret meeting , 30 May - 2 June, Madrid, Spain
70th Bilderbergite Summit this weekend.
This year's meeting in Madrid started on Thursday and ends on Sunday. Among those present were US Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo and Vice National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer, Finnish President Alexander Stub, European Council President Charles Michel, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, as well as the Prime Ministers of the Netherlands and Estonia, the Foreign Ministers of Spain, Ukraine, Sweden, Poland and the Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland. Pfizer CEO Albert Burla, BP Chief Executive Officer Murray Auchinclos and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt will take part in the world of business, along with several AI executives from Google, Microsoft and the Anthropic PBC. Despite the fact that Russia is one of the topics, there is not a single Rusnak among the invited guests.
"To say that we want one world government is an exaggeration, but it's not entirely unfair," commented Dennis Healy [10.03.01], one of the group's founders. "Those of us in Bilderberg we felt that we couldn't go on forever fighting each other about anything so we kill people and leave millions of people homeless. So we think a community around the world would be nice""

We should not be blind to the fact that a growing Russian military with material support from Chinese companies will only grow in ambition.

Our Response

That's why we must be explicit with every individual, company, and country that providing the Russian military-industrial complex [MIC] with support is unacceptable.

This needs to start at home, including with companies within our countries. As Ukrainians have directly raised with me, Russian weapons found on the battlefield have American- and European-branded components. The United States is engaging with our manufacturing, distribution, and freight forwarding firms to build out better compliance regimes to prevent our goods from ending up in Russia. We need our allies to do the same housekeeping with their private sectors, and we need companies around the world to take similar steps.
