È una storia straordinaria, che merita di essere raccontata e conosciuta, quella della "piccola" #Bulgaria, il Paese che la scorsa primavera ha - in gran segreto - salvato l'#Ucraina.
Merito del coraggio e della fantasia dell'ex premier #Petkov, un politico che ha preferito perdere il proprio potere piuttosto che cedere ai diktat dei partiti filo-russi. Conosco un altro premier che ha scelto lo stesso destino.
A ricostruire questa incredibile vicenda con una serie di interviste al ministro degli Esteri ucraino Dmytro Kuleba, allo stesso Kiril Petkov e al suo ministro delle finanze, Assen Vassilev, è stata un'inchiesta del quotidiano tedesco WELT. Non è un dettaglio: c'è da sperare

Hello There !
#Denmark officially donates the entirety of its SPH (french beast) Caesar - the armored 8x8 version to #Ukraine !
See! when you want, you can... and France never stop anyone to do what they want with their purchase. Image
2/ what is also very interesting is that if 15 other countries gives at least 20 SPH, then #Ukraine would "match" current firepower of Russia (in terms of this caliber/function) because you got to remember that basically a Caesar (or equivalent) needs about 3-6 shells to do what
3/ Russians can do using 2 systems & 30 shells at least.

so yep... really really good news here..
we just need a ton of ammo right now and much much more high précisions ones.

In the early stages of #Russia's invasion, critically important help for #Ukraine has come from an unexpected place: #Bulgaria, led by PM @KirilPetkov. I provide some additional context about this curious report in the 🧵below. 1/…
One thing ahead: the title is way too bombastic (“secretly saved”?) and full of platitudes that are irrelevant to the topic (“EU’s poorest country”). But what can you do, we live in the age of #clickbait. Apart from this dubitable editorial choice, it is an informative piece. 2/
On April 19th, 2022, 🇺🇦 foreign minister @DmytroKuleba visited Bulgaria and stayed for two full days, meeting various government representatives. Needless to say, “boosting trade and tourism” was barely the purpose of the visit. 3/

Day 305 of the war and welcome to another daily thread with all the news on #Ukraine's attempt to rid their country of Russians

Today there may be fewer updates than usual (sure you understand why!)

Lots of news yesterday. catch up here
First today sad news from #Kherson which has had a terrible 24 hours.

After the murder of 8 civilians when #Russia shelled the central market area, news now that 3 soldiers helping to demine formerly occupied areas have been killed.
One of the Kremlin's explosives blew them up.
How stupid are the occupiers?

Trying to raise the spirits of locals and spread propaganda in #Melitopol.
Except the Russians cannot even spell the town's name correctly - this says "Miletopol"🤡🤡🤦

Bulgarian authorities question reporter and editor about sources…

Thread on Turkey’s Energy Ambitions & Regional Dominance
1-18 President Erdoğan gave an energy-focused speech last Friday in a ceremony for the capacity expansion of the Silivri Underground Natural Gas Storage Facility, which reached 4.6 billion cubic meters (162.45 bcf).
2-18 The speech highlights several energy policy issues, provides some interesting data, and most importantly, highlights the two issues that we focused on in this week's and last week’s newsletters: Relations with Russia and the desire to be a gas hub.
3-18 Below are translated excerpts from the speech (from ):
- “Silivri has become the largest underground gas storage facility in Europe.”

#Austria vetoed, in the European Council, the accession of #Romania and #Bulgaria into the #Schengen area. This is odd because it runs against the views of all other member states bar the #Netherlands and against the recommendation of the European Commission.

The Austrians complain they're experiencing a surge in arrivals of people who are, de facto, economic migrants, from multiple origins, who then claim political asylum.
It is true there has been a surge. But Romania and Bulgaria appear to have very little to do with it.

Instead it appears it is #Serbia that serves as a new massive point of arrival for migrants who then make it to AUT. This seems to be mainly through HUN:
AUT voted for Croatia's entry into Schengen, and I don't see complaints about Slovenia.…

Hoy es el Día Nacional de #Rumania, en conmemoración de la Gran Unión de 1918, cuando Transilvania, Besarabia y Bukovina se sumaron al Reino.

De todas formas lo celebramos con un hilo sobre este país, mucho, mucho más allá de Drácula 🇷🇴 ImageImageImage
La historia de la Rumania moderna empieza después de esa súper guerra entre el Imperio Otomano y todos los que se vengan (también conocida como guerra ruso-turca) de 1877-78.

Igual que #Serbia, #Bulgaria y #Montenegro, Rumania empezó a ser un país con la derrota turca. ImageImageImage
Todo marchaba relativamente bien en el Reino de Rumania incluso con la Primera Guerra, porque, a diferencia de Bulgaria, quedó del lado ganador. Y ¡zas! de pronto el reino se hizo con muchas tierras... de ahí la unidad que se celebra hoy.

Y pasó de esto a esto: ImageImage

So today was the first day I started to delve into @summitnational the bank that #nexo announced end of Sep 2022 that it had taken an undisclosed stake in and a 'game changer for the industry'. Image
Does anyone remember that song "pretty fly for a white guy"
well of summit's directors is way more fly than that guy. back in 2011 said director managed to launch his #Porshe 35 feet in the air into the second story of a house. Image

Day 272 of #Russia 4 day plan to take #Kyiv and 10 days to control #Ukraine. How's that going?

Here is another daily thread covering all the news as it happens.

Missed something yesterday? Here's the link for all Monday's news:

#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

Let's start with the daily losses as estimated by #Ukraine.

The total of #Russia's soldiers killed for Putin's egotistical and illegal dream has reached 85,000

The 100,000 figure remain on track to be hit shortly before New Year.

#RussiansGoHome #StandWithUkraine️
British Intelligence comes to the conclusion I wrote about four days ago when #Ukraine appeared to have struck an oil terminal on #Russia's Black Sea coast with a 'marine drone'

The @IAEA has a busy day. The nuclear watchdog's report into #Russia's allegations of #Ukraine making a dirty bomb may be out today

But problems at the huge #Zaporizhzhia plant where the last power line's been cut by shelling today. Just 15 days' fuel left for backup generators
#Russia is so well resources and prepared for the winter phase of its war of choice, that it continues to beg, borrow & steal.

I just returned from #Turkey. I have spent days with Afghan & Syrian communities in Istanbul & at the border with #Bulgaria. I spoke with lawyers & local activists & archived evidences of pushbacks filmed by refugees who managed to survive violence & repression.

A few thoughts.
For the last years, #Turkey is the 1st address where Afghan refugees either stay permanently or wait at a transit point to cross to #Europe. Besides exploitation by employers & lack of access to public services, they are now facing the threat of detention or deportation to #Iran.
You’ll find them in #Zeytinburnu where restaurants employ a steady stream of runaways, including minors. I met young couples who already paid over the odds for passage over #Iran's treacherous mountains, sometimes waist-deep in snow & are now saving for another perilous journey.

My today message to #EU Leaders in @EUCouncil: in a Union of equals, there can be no second class citizens! Just follow the #EuropeanParliament which is united in supporting #Romania & #Bulgaria’s full accession to Schengen! #Mythread 1/1
#Romania and #Bulgaria have committed to implementing the #Schengen acquis and already proved themselves in the way they addressed the challenges and managed their borders in the face of refugees fleeing the war in #Ukraine. 1/2
#Council unnecessarily denied a right to Romania & Bulgaria, for 11 years. #Romania has proved that it could manage an external border when over 1 million of refugees crossed their borders fleeing the war in #Ukraine 1/3

Hoy es el Día de la Independencia de #Bulgaria, aunque no sea el aniversario de su declaración de independencia. Pero en realidad sí. Pero no. De todas formas lo celebramos con un hilo sobre esta mini Unión Soviética, con rey y un guardaespaldas-bombero-karateca de ex líder 🇧🇬 ImageImageImageImage
(Antes de arrancar, este hilo continúa el del Día de la Unificación de #Bulgaria el 6 de septiembre. Entonces nos quedamos en la muerte de Georgi Dimitrov, primer líder socialista, en 1949. Seguimos desde ahí)
¿Cómo que Día de la Independencia pero no? Después de la guerra entre el Imperio Otomano y todos los que se vengan, 1877-78, #Bulgaria fue un territorio bastante autónomo, pero recién se independizó en 1908. El 22/9 según el calendario juliano y 5/10 según el gregoriano, actual. ImageImage

‘Caravan of Light’: Mass Movement From Turkey to Europe

More than 100,000 migrants are ready to leave Turkey for Europe.

For the past few days I spent infiltrating what appears to be an organised network of smuggler Telegram channels, and here is what I’ve learned:
Due to “unbearable racism” and lack of financial support, many migrants are attempting to cross from Turkey into Europe.

A handful of these Telegram channels which I subscribed to encourage and provide useful information.
One channel with more than 72k members provide directions and contacts of smugglers in Cyprus, Russia, Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, Austria, Italy and Lithuania who can help them get into those countries.

They also provide information about how to apply for asylum and destroy IDs.

2 children on the boat have died in recent days -- and the health of others are deteriorating.

To ignore such a tragedy, just off #Malta's coast, represents an unspeakable lack of humanity.

Time for someone to step up, @MaltaGov.
@MaltaGov That Syrians are still fleeing for #Europe is no surprise, particularly those in #Lebanon where authorities are preparing to *illegally force* them back to #Syria.

5+ million #Syria refugees remain in neighboring states & polling suggests ~0.5% would consider an eventual return.
@MaltaGov Why do almost all #Syria refugees refuse to consider any future return to #Syria?

The answer is obvious when you glance across basic facts -- see this thread from last week:
