We've reached day 350 of #Russia's insane war on #Ukraine
Here's another daily thread.

Tense scenes at the front with pressure mounting on #Bakhmut every hour, but fewer attacks in the rest of Ukraine.
#Kharkiv was shelled last night, you can recap here
First an update from #Kharkiv, no civilians were injured in the shelling as S-300s hit the city centre.

Four rockets hit "a civil industry facility" where there was also a large fire after the impact with buildings completely destroyed.

Missiles also landed in the Central Park.
This morning there have also been two attacks already in #Mykolaiv region.

At 6 o'clock shells hit #Ochakiv on the coast and a little over an hour later #Kutsurub, jusy 7km up the coast was targeted. No further news yet.

La narco-guerra che sta sconvolgendo il Belgio (e di cui si dovrebbe parlare...), qui un thread!

#Antwerp, 9 gennaio. Un'undicenne è trasportata d'urgenza in ospedale: le hanno sparato dei banditi entrati in casa sua.
Nonostante la corsa dei chirurghi, non ce la farà. /1
Un furto in villa andato male? Uno scambio di persona? No. Un agguato ad una famiglia legata a persona di cui non viene rivelata identità, ma che sarebbe coinvolta nella narco-guerra x controllo della principale porta d'accesso all'Europa della coca sudamericana: Anversa.
L'omicidio dell'undicenne ha scioccato il #Belgio. C'è chi ha proposto di dispiegare ff.aa per le strade, soprattutto ad Anversa, ma l'esecutivo ha detto di no.
In Belgio, sede delle principali istituzioni UE, si sta svolgendo una delle narco-guerre più sanguinose del continente.

Sleepless in #Piraeus

#COSCO are increasingly uneasy about their investment in #Greece. They are desperate to get the go-ahead for a new container terminal (Pier IV), with an estimated capacity of handling some TEU2.8m a year, mostly because of competition. 1/10
In 2020, #TangerMed in #Morocco (run by #Maersk) overtook #Piraeus as the largest container port in the #Mediterranean, and #Valencia got very close. The merger between #Antwerp and #Zeebrugge also adds to what is already a fierce competition between forwarders. 2/10
So far, the government of #Greece has not agreed to the construction of a new container terminal, due to growing resistance to #COSCO’s policies from a motley crew of local stakeholders in #Piraeus and neighbouring municipalities. 3/10

A visit by a Nicholas actor to a Belgian retirement home may be the origin of a corona outbreak. The city of Mol in the province of Antwerp speaks of a "superspreader".
The man - a relative - had tested positive for the virus, she said. Corona tests were positive as of Sunday for 61 residents and 14 employees. One of the residents died - but was already in a palliative stage before the infection.
Another is being treated with serious symptoms. Some had a low temperature. Most of the residents are fine and have no symptoms. However, that could still change. Whether the outbreak actually goes back to the visit of the Sinterklaas, as St. Nicholas is called there,

#Belgium #Antwerp #Hijack

In Belgium, three armed men hijacked a helicopter and flew it over two prisons. The Belga news agency reports that the flight took off from Antwerp on Friday.
Once in the air, the men threatened the 36-year-old pilot with a gun and forced her to head for Brussels. The pilot had to fly over two adjacent prisons in the Belgian capital. According to the broadcaster VRT,
the police suspect an attempted escape, but because of its size, the helicopter could not land in the courtyard of the detention center fly from Brussels. They have been on the run since then. There are no inmates missing from the prisons.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)
