After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

Operation Z is the first salvo of a titanic struggle: three decades after the fall of the USSR, and 77 years after the end of WWII, after careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

What #Ukraine needs asap to win the war: heavy #artillery
You might have seen that 🇺🇲 is already helping a lot. This is true. #Ukrainians are thankful a lot. But it’s not enough for 🇺🇦 to protect the whole world from a massive threat to humanity.
(1/8)
Artillery is the “bread and butter” of war. Ukraine’s “main” artillery calibers are 122 and 152 mm. The problem with 152 mm is that #Ukraine DOES NOT produce ammo of this type (all it has is the legacy from the Soviet war machine).
(2/8)
Thus, even though 🇺🇦has 152 mm cannons, it is quickly running out of ammo. Given the intensity of the conflict, it won’t be long before 🇺🇦 doesn’t have any 152 mm ammo left. If that happens, 🇺🇦 forces won’t be able to shoot back, and 🇷🇺artillery will overwhelm them.

US occupation forces deploy to Aden to protect "presidential council"

Saudi-led forces have sent dozens of US troops on Sunday to Yemen’s southern port city of #Aden.

This was reported by the Yemen News Portal, based on the testimonies of well-informed sources.

This move came a few hours after US officers arrived at the al-Ma’ashiq Palace in #Aden, on a mission to protect the so-called Presidential Council, which is expected to be reside at the palace in the coming days.

Informed sources confirmed that a new batch of #American

"Sadly, #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine is unfortunate" and 🇵🇰 "shares a long and strategic relationship with 🇺🇸 which remains our largest export market."

US satellite-guided bomb targeting Hodeidah electricity

The Yemeni Executive Center for Mine Action @mineaction_ye
revealed that the bomb used by the US-Saudi aggression in bombing the Hodeidah Electricity Corporation is an American satellite-guided bomb, the
1/2
type of Jadam, which is internationally prohibited because it contains uranium.

The center said in a statement that, "After examining the parts and special parts that were found at the place of targeting, the results showed that the weapon used was an American bomb
1/3
of the GBU_31 type (JDAM), which targeted the station at the dawn of March 27."
The center explained that the bomb led to the complete destruction of the company and the destruction of all its departments, equipment and devices, and the deaths and injuries of its engineers.

Then, as the #Emirates went to war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen, that’s when the Emirates deployed these mercenaries into #Yemen to kill #Houthis. And they did. And now we have mercenary warfare in Yemen almost like it’s the Middle Ages again.”

Thread: 22 March 2022: Day 27 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Russia continues to hold Brittney Griner, an #American professional basketball player, hostage. Ms. Griner was "arrested" on fabricated charges on Feb. 17, clearly intended as leverage during the invasion of #Ukraine, which began exactly a week later.
At least five #Russian Generals have been killed in #Ukraine because Moscow has no choice but to have them at the front: the communications are not working, and morale/discipline are deeply troubled; without Generals on the spot, things would fall apart. foreignpolicy.com/2022/03/21/rus…

#UkraineRussianWar

There are 3 main scenarios how this conflict could evolve going forward. Each of those scenario has certain probabilities of it occurring. Lets examine each one of them and their implications to the world in general:
Scenario 1 - (P:60%) #Ukarine & #Russia agree a ceasefire. Ukraine agrees to cede #Crimea and #Donbass to #Russia. #Putin withdraws #RussianArmy. #Europe over a period of time removes #sanctions. In a year, World becomes normal & everyone lives happily. Best outcome possible.
Scenario 2 - (P:30%) The conflict escalates. stalemate ensues. #Putin reaches #Dniper, takes over Kyiv. #Ukraine is bi-furcated in two - #EastUkraine under #Russian control, #WestUkraine aligned with #NATO. #SanctionsRussiaNow continue for long. #Europe consolidates with #USA

⚡️ Head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Sergey Naryshkin (key points):

• The more successfully the Russian special military operation in #Ukraine develops, the stronger the hysteria becomes in the #UnitedStates and other #NATO countries.
• The masks have been dropped. The #West is not just trying to surround #Russia with a new "Iron Curtain". We witnessed attempts to destroy our state, attempts of its "cancellation".
#NATO bombed #Yugoslavia under the pretext of rescuing the "unfortunate" #Kosovo Albanians, and now their leader Hashim Thaci himself is on trial for war crimes and trafficking of human organs.

Turkish TB2 Drones are proving to be #Ukraine's secret weapon against the #Russian Invasion

Turkish drones are cheap, mobile, and effective at taking out Russian tank convoys

I explain below👇👇🧵
First: here is an example of how #Turkish drones are being used in #Ukraine against #Russian forces

But #Ukraine has only 12 Bayraktar TB2 Drones in its armed forces, far less than it needs to counter #Russia

Important question: Will #Erdogan and #Turkey send more drones to Ukraine?

#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image

Thread: US Senators weaponized

First, @nayibbukele is perfectly within his right to criticize the group of meddling senators trying to start a @StateDept investigation of #BTC in #ElSalvador. What's there to investigate? It's an internal financial matter.
markets.businessinsider.com/news/currencie…
Second, it's clear that US is in poor position to criticize anyone on their currency choices given the absurd levels of #inflation thanks to corrupt multitrilliondollar boondoggles benefiting some of these senators, among many other gravy train riders.
Third, it is very obvious that this idea to start an investigation did not suddenly dawn on its sponsors out of the blue. It's not like US does not have domestic & foreign priorities more important than #ElSalvador's #BTC. This was a creation of failing frustrated finance lobby.
