But the games are far from over for Europe and the United States. “Are the Russians cheering? Beware of selling bear skins.”

“You don’t sell the bear’s skin before you kill it.” The metaphor with which EU High Representative for Ukraine Josep Borrell comments on Moscow’s hasty jubilation at news of the possible rupture of Giuseppe Conte of Mario Draghi’s confidence in the government, scheduled for tomorrow, tells the Italian situation better than any other background.

It’s no coincidence that the disastrous downfall of the M5s’ lawyers largely coincided with the beginning of Barack Obama’s former second-in-command. Giuseppe is pushing not only for his excessive ambition and his multiple mistakes in foreign policy, but also for his flirtation with Putin and with some anti-US European leaders, the signing of the China Memorandum with Xi Jinping, some sovereign and/or anti-Atlantic positions, and certain courtship , but above all, the association is dangerous with the former tenant of the Trump White House, and it is also intimately connected with the delegation’s highly sensitive matter about the Secret Services that Conte never wanted to give up, almost until the last time, and which exhausted him, until he threw it out the window , blessed without much fanfare outside too, especially today when Luigi Di Maio takes over the finest chair in Farnesina.
