I have never heard about this person, he seems to have almost no qualifications as a historian or academic, in #Azerbaijan'i sources he is referenced highly and called a famous historian, which no one can verify.
Ekozyants tries very hard to convince readers that in history Armenia was always a geographical region, yet again a very childish and amateur approach. It's even more surprising that some people are prone to quoting him as an authoritative source.

If readers are questioning whether ancient Armenians are genetically similar to their modern descendants, here’s a number of scientific articles on the genetic heritage of the #Armenia'n people showing their existence in #Caucasus since the Bronze Age.…

Wednesday 3 August. Day 161 of #Russia's full scale invasion of peaceful #Ukraine

Welcome to my daily thread, with all the news from, and affecting the war. DMs open for tips (anonymous if preferred)

Thx to those who already supported me.
Still big problems for #Russia in the occupied south of #Ukraine. British Intel today highlighting the transport links which will hinder their attempts to fend off a Ukraine assault in #Kherson or counter attack here towards #Mykolaiv.
The #Ukraine land assault in #Kherson will come, but #Russia adding 1000s of extra (untrained) conscripts + Wagner mercenaries to the warzone, complicates matters

The invaders now threaten #Zaporizhzhia having failed to take all of #Donetsk

So for now 🇺🇦continues to hit 🇷🇺bases

You're in the right place for all the news that matters, both the battlefield and the politics, as #Russia continues to attack #Ukraine

It's Daily🧵#142 of #PutinsWar

If you want to buy me a coffee, the link's in my profile. Thanks to all who have, I'll write personally ASAP.
Overnight #Russia complained of "an attack" by drones inside its borders. Obviously it blamed #Ukraine + published these photos.

Why Ukraine would choose to fire something tiny at a library in a non-descript town in #Belgorod they couldn't explain!

കഴിഞ്ഞ ദിവസം ലോക ചരക്ക് ഗതാഗതം മാറ്റി മറിക്കുന്ന ഒരു സംഭവം ഉണ്ടായിട്ടുണ്ട്.

INSTC എന്ന ഇന്റർനാഷണൽ നോർത്ത് സൗത്ത് ട്രാൻസ്‌പോർട്ട് കോറിഡോറിൽ ആദ്യമായി ഒരു ട്രയൽ ചരക്ക് നീക്കം തുടങ്ങി.

റഷ്യയിലെ സെയിന്റ് പീറ്റേഴ്‌സിൽ നിന്നും 40 ടണ് ചരക്കുമായി ഒരു കപ്പൽ കാസ്പിയൻ 1
കടലിലിലെ astrakhan തുറമുഖം ലക്ഷ്യമാക്കി നീങ്ങി തുടങ്ങി.
അവിടെ നിന്നും ആ ചരക്ക് കാസ്പിയൻ കടലിലെ ഇറാനിയൻ തുറമുഖം ആയ Anzali യിൽ എത്തും.

പിന്നിട്ട് ആ ചരക്കുകൾ റോഡ് മാർഗ്ഗം ഇറാനിലൂടെ, ഇറാന്റെ തന്നെ, പേർഷ്യൻ ഗൾഫിലെ തുറമുഖം ആയ ബന്ദർ അബ്ബാസ്സിൽ വന്നു ചേരും.

ബന്ദർ അബ്ബാസ് തുറമുഖത് 2
നിന്നും കപ്പലിൽ കയറുന്ന ചരക്ക് ഇന്ത്യൻ തുറമുഖം ആയ നവസേവ എന്ന ലക്ഷ്യ സ്ഥാനത്ത് എത്തും.
ഈ റൂട്ടിൽ വരുമ്പോൾ പരമ്പരാഗത സൂയസ് കനാൽ റൂട്ടിൽ എടുക്കുന്ന 40 ദിവസം എന്നത് 20 ദിവസം ആയി ചുരുങ്ങും.
അതിന് അനുസരിച്ച് ചരക്കു നീക്ക ചിലവും കുറയും.

Judging by the report to #Putin, yesterday's talks between #Russian Foreign Minister #Lavrov & his Turkish counterpart Çavuşoğlu didn't bring any significant results. They agreed to continue discussing sensitive issues, refraining from harmful to bilateral relations steps
#Putin was dissatisfied with the result of #Lavrov's visit to #Turkey & talked about the fact that the Turkish side in the negotiation process is seeking tangible concessions to the detriment of #Russian positions. He traditionally gave Lavrov rollicking
It's important for #Putin to understand the actions of the Turkish leadership & to have close contact with #Erdogan, given the preparation and possible implementation of a geopolitical project in the #Caucasus

It begins: Now Albania PR @HoxhaFer intones about @pressfreedom while his @AlMissionUN won't even answer written questions from Inner City Press (unlike the IMF, for example) - Ferit Hoxha is today servicing state media from China #Azerbaijan, #Saudi - hypocrisy
Now @AlMissionUN hands first question to Italian media, which again asks about... Italy. @HoxhaFer says, Grazie! For the softball question? What is his answer about the recently data dumped cases of sex abuse by UN peacekeepers?…
More parochial games - @HoxhaFer gives 3d question to, what else, a reporter in from Albania, to ask a softball qeustion about Kosovo. Ferit Hoxha is reading from notes. Can't take real Press questions?…

In the South #Caucasus there has not been a common response to the invasion of Ukraine. 🇬🇪 is bound to a strategy of “non-deterrence”, 🇦🇲 remains subordinated to Russia’s security interests, and 🇦🇿 pursues its balancing policy.

A thread🧵
#Armenia is the only Russian ally in the South Caucasus. As a result of its defeat in the Second Karabakh War in 2020, Armenia is more reliant than ever on its security partnership with Russia, which leads the government to avoid any statement on the war in Ukraine.
Armenia hosts two Russian military bases - the Russian 102nd Military Base in Gyumri and the Russian 3624th Airbase in Erebuni Airport. Additionally, the Armenian population still living in Karabakh is dependent on Russian peacekeeping troops for its own survival.

1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

#Russia is in a very unhappy place. Little else that can be said.

I've been reading about the 1905 clashes between Armenians & Azerbaijanis, the first known inter-ethnic confrontation between the two, and reaffirmed my conviction that the disagreements & subsequent #Armenia-#Azerbaijan wars are the product of the 'divide et impera' policy 1/10
One of the reasons that triggered the bloody events was the underrepresentation of the Muslim population in local city councils. Although the Muslim population of #Baku accounted for around 80% of the electorate, they were entitled to less than a third of the seats. 2/10
Without a significant #Russia'n population in the region, Russians chose to rely on #Armenia'ns as Christians, promoting them to administrative roles. After a while though, seeing the rise of national sentiments among them, they did the contrary, this time betting on Muslims 3/10
