 *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Most Surprizing Event in a well-attended CoE's Debate on the "Hot" Topical Issue of Belarus, was the UnExpected Refusal of Former Presidential Candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya to give Any Direct Reply Now, (Contrary to a Top MEP Representing the Current Regime in Power at Minsk: Andrei Savinykh, President of Belarussian Assembly's International affairs Commission, who did reply immediately: See Infra), to the Questions raised and/or Proposals made by several MEPs, from Both Sides of that Political Conflict, in order to Find a Peaceful Solution.

Speaking in a Video-Conference, (as also Everybody else, because of the Virus' Infections, recently Sky-Rocketing here in France, which have just made the CoE Exceptionaly Push for Later, on Middle-End October, its Parliamentary Assembly's Plenary in Strasbourg for this Fall, and even to Cancel its Annual "World Democracy Forum" of the Year 2020, initialy Scheduled for November, which would be Replaced by some Web Events : See ... + ..., etc), Tikhanovskaya, at the Beginning of this Debate, made a Short Critical Presentation of her Views on the Situation in her Country, at a Fast and Dense Pace, Cutting even Short at the Time-slot Reserved by the CoE for her Intervention.

The Chairwoman of CoE Assembly's Political Affairs Committee, who Organized that Meeting, Brittish Conservative MEP Dame Cheryl Gillan, announced, at the Conclusion of Today's Debate, that Tikhanovskaya "had to Leave" Before that, but would "Respond by Writting or Orally, to the (CoE's) Secretariat, on Everybody's Questions", Later-on, at an UnDetermined Moment.

Nothing was said yet on Which, Eventualy UnExpected Events, Might, perhaps, have Hindered Tikhanovskaya, at the Last Minute, from Replying Now.

 +On the Other Side, Andrei Savinykh (Comp. Supra), who did Reply Now to this CoE's Collective Exchange of Views with Many and Various MEPs, Spoke at his Long Concluding Remarks in his Native Language, which, Curiously, was ... Not Translated, at least at the Version received by "Eurofora"'s 2 different Journalists. And, Surprizingly, the Same Obstacle Hindered Also to be timely Informed Even on 3 Russian MEPs' Statements, (including Top MEPs Leonid Slutsky, President of Duma's International Affairs Committee, and Pyotr Tolstoi, vice-President of the Duma and vice-President of CoE's Assembly !), as all Translated Versions were Blocked, here, by a Strange "Error" Message, (See relevant Photos, attached).

WithOut Yet Knowing, at this moment, whether it was a Scandalously "Targetted" Cyber-Attack against "Eurofora"'s Internet Connexions specialy, or a Wider UnExpected Problem, Belaying CoE's Officially Published promise that this Public Debate would be Translated, "Streamed Live  in English, French, German, Italian and Russian"...

 -------------------

In Fact, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya had Multiplied, Recently, various Public Declarations, (including, among others, also at EU Parliament and to EU Council, at the UNO, etc., added to MainStream Medias' Interviews, etc.), But this PanEuropean CoE's Public Debate, Today, was Unique in having, in Principle, a Larger, quite Pluralist and Polyphonic Nature, by Associating Both Sides of Belarus' Political Conflict, as well as Russian MEPs, etc.

Therefore, Any kind of Blocking the promised Translations inevitably Undermined that Crucial Democratic Added Value of CoE Assembly's Exchanges ! But, at least for the Time being, in Addition to CoE's own Streamlined "Live" Version, the Only Video of that CoE's Debate Published at the Web, is that of "RUPTLY" in "Youtube", which has Only the "Original" Language version, thus, Still Hindering to Know Timely what were the Arguments of Both Sides : Currently, Only the Notoriously Critical vis a vis President Lukashenko's Government MEPs from some Neighbouring Countries and the UK, etc., appeared Accessible in Immediate Translations received at our Office Computers, (Comp. Supra).

These Obstacles, Unfortunately Limit the Scope to a Narrow Conflict Between merely Accusing Belarus' Government to be "Oppressive" and Based on "Fraud", or merely Accusing such Opposition to "Provoke Violence" and be Based on "Foreign Interferences from Outside", (etc), withOut a Real Freedom to Timely Examine and Compare key Facts...

Such Negative Circumstances, Obviously are so more Regrettable, that PanEuropean CoE Assembly's main Official Aim seems to Focus, precisely, on the Claim to Organise a promised "inclusive Democratic Debate" in Belarus, about necessary Agreed Changes,, which, Naturally, Requires a Credible basic Pluralism...

This is, indeed, Reflected, inter alia, Even at 2 Different (even if, Eventualy, Open to some Combinations) Proposals for Motions of Resolutions and/or Reports, currently Tabled at CoE's Assembly, where the 1st, (originaly presented by the Chairwoman of its Political Affairs Committee, Brittish Conservative MEP Dame Cheryl Gillan), Focuses on a "National Dialogue", co-Signed by a Large Number of Various Important MEPs, and anOther, (presented by a Different UK Conservative MEP : Lord Blencathra), Focusing on what it calls an "Urgent Need" to Change the way that Belarus' President is Elected, (co-Signed Only by a quite Smaller Number of MEPs, Politicaly more Narrow).

=> In Such Conditions, at least for the Time Being, (f.ex. as long as "Eurofora" -and, perhaps, even Other People- might be Still Hindered to Clearly Know all the main Facts and Arguments presented by Both Sides in Belarus' Political Conflict, since, at the Present Moment, for the reasons Denounced Supra, it's almost Only the Views of mainly very Critical MEPs from some Neighbouring Countries that Minsk's Government has notoriously Denounced, which are Accessible, from the Start, with Web Translations during the Initial Streamed version, (Comp. Supra), while, on the Contrary, almost All Lukashenko-Friendly MEPs are Largely Excluded from Translation in the Video versions that we (and may-be also others) were allowed to see Until Now, "Eurofora" is Obliged, by obvious Elementary Press Deontology Reasons, to at least Postpone "sine die" Any Publication on the Substance of that Issue, which might be Hindered to have a Timely Balanced Access to Both Sides' Full Claims.

It's important to create a synergy between "mutually stimulating" EU Countries' moves in order to overcome an "Unjust" Crisis "imported from USA", stressed new French Minister for Economic Revival, Patrick Devedjian, in Strasbourg, warning also that, while hoping for a vigorous Obama US Plan, nevertheless, "Time" is of essence for Europe...

In fact, it's EU's own interest to act Fast, before June 2009 EU Election, since, with Lisbon Treaty not ratified yet, it cannot face again the risk of a Majority Abstention, as back in 1999 and 2004, nor another "anti-EU" mood among Citizens, as in the 2005 French and Dutch "No", followed by the 2008 Irish "No", without endangering rare Historic opportunities, currently open for the EU, whose future is at stake.

From Social issues up to High-Tech Scientific Research, concrete action for Economic revival started from Strasbourg and its European dimension, for the new super-Minister Patrick Devedjian, who visited a Popular Social Housing and Infrastructure project at nearby Hagenau village, before meeting new leaders of Strasbourg's unified mega-University in a Scientific Labo at the Campus, close to EU Parliament and CoE headquarters.

Devedjian, who met also with all the spectrum of Local Political  deciders of Alsace region, close to FrancoGerman borders, wants for deeds to meet the words, in real practice, whenever politicians speak about Strasbourg and Europe's development.

-------------------------------
Devedjan to "EuroFora" : "European coordination can act as a multiplicator by mutual stimulations"
--------------------------------
Devedjian was questioned by "Euro-Fora" on his expectations for reciprocal effects of coordinated European plans :

- "We are living in a (European and Global) system where borders are transparent : When we take measures in France, they produce effects also in Germany, in Belgium, Italy, Spain, or other EU countries, and vice-versa. "So, we can have mutually stimulating effects between national revival Plans, if they are somehow coordinated", ..."They can augment each other's effects, acting as multiplicators and levers". "As a State stimulates Local authorities and Private business, similarly, each EU country's economic revival plan may multiply the effects of other EU countries' actions", he told us.

- "F.ex., when I visited Strasbourg University's Scientific labos, they told me that part of the renovation, funded by France, is realized by German companies located only a few Kms away from the border. Thus, the French revival plan benefits also the German economy. And vice-versa : when Germany takes certain measures, they can have beneficial effects also for French companies"

In an era of Globalisation, "nobody can close and isolate himself inside a Fish-Bowl !", he concluded.

Economy's revival starts from Strasbourg and Europe, for new French Minister Devedjian

This could be one of the reasons for which the new French Minister for Economic Stimulus chose to make his 1st visit to Strasbourg, the headquarters of European and Paneuropean Institutions, in the Franco-German river borders at the heart of Europe.

- "It was President Sarkozy's idea", he revealed, adding also fresh "support to Strasbourg's European vocation, not only with words, but also with deeds" :F.ex., the completion of a High-Speed Train network, due to stimulate fast links with Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary and other central EU Countries.

- "This Crisis is Unjust for Europe, because it wasn't its fault". The greatest part of the "Crisis was imported from the USA, where problems are deeper than here'', in the EU. The Crisis "wasn't due to a bad managment by Europe", who was affected by problems which emerged elsewhere. That's why Europe must be united and active enough to face this challenge. said Devedjian, who has just won +5% in popularity...

- "I hope that there will be an "Obama-effect" also on Economy, and that the Plan of the New American President will be substantial enough to face this crisis, which is worse in the USA than in our area", Europe, he added.

"Economic Revival overcomes political divisions : F.ex. Strasbourg's Socialist Mayor "Ries agreed that State actions funded by Public Debt are justified during such exceptional circumstances", noted the Center-Right republican Minister.

"Zeitnot" for 2009 EU Elections ?

--------------------

"My problem is Time", stressed Devedjian from the outset, at Strasbourg's University. "I have to engage 75% of funds in 2009, out of a total of 29 Billion euros", he explained later. "Monitoring will be of essence", because we must "avoid bureaucracy or delays. No project should get lost or neglected in complex meanders of adminstrative offices' moving sands", he warned.

- "I must create activities in the middle of the Crisis", he added. Questioned by EuroFora whether he aims to start creating some "hopes before the June 2009 EU Elections", Devedjian, a former leader of the Governing Political Party in France: UMP, did not immediately reply, but revealed, later, that he "hoped to start at least some Projects on May 2009, even if the bulk of Revival Plan's effects are "expected from Autumn 2009".

However, with only 30% of EU Citizens currently aiming to cast a vote at the forthcoming EU Elections on June, (See other NewStory), the  coordinated moves' results are expected to be crucial for Citizens' participation and votes at the forthcoming June 2009 EU Elections throughout all 27 EU Member Countries...Thus, it's vital for all Europe's own Future that coordinated national Economic revival plans start to have concrete results and create hopes for new dynamics before the June 2009 EU Election...

A real challenge, since careful choices are needed : Our aim is to fund projects which "create activities", even "in the middle of the crisis", and have a "lever effect, attracting other investments", Devedjian said. Because the "Stimulus' Plan has 2 aims : A Tactical one : to create New Activities. And a Strategic one : Choose what can become efficient and useful also in the Long-term". 

- "Are you ready ?", he asked Strasbourg University's new President, professor Alain Beretz, with some 700 million euros in his pockets for Education-Research in France. - "We are !", he replied.

- "The Minister's initiative can accelerate funds, and Time is important for us. This concerns the entire renovation of all our buildings", said to "EuroFora" President, Beretz. "I showed some Scientific Research Labos to Mr. Devedjian. But, If we had more time, I could show him also some Education Amphis, whose condition needs to meet Strasbourg's new Mega-University's ambition" to reach the 10 best in the World, as Prime Minister Fillon earlier anounced here.

Regional Prefectures should gather and select projects to be presented for decision before the end of January 2009.

A well-known close friend of President Sarkozy, who succeeded as EU Chairman to launch, in agreement with German chancelor Merkel and even British prime minister Brown, vigorous EU actions against the Financial/Economic Crisis, (starting from the 1st Historic Summit of EuroZone's Heads of State/Government, October 12 at Elysee Palace, followed by Washington G20 Global Summit), Devedjan will have a key role in the realisation of National and EU plans recently agreed in Brussels.

President Sarkozy is expected to arrive himself in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the official inauguration of its brand New Mega-Hospital, on the 9th of January 2009, at the eve of EU Parliament's session here, Elysee confirmed shortly after Devedjian's visit.

EU is due to review its economic revival plans at March 2009 EU Council in Prague, before the April 2 London Global Summit.
