1/19 β€œThe most brutal crimes are committed by #Chechens. Inhuman cruelty is not a Russian tradition". The leader of the #Vatican Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Francis, aka #Pope of Rome) made a statement shocking in its falsity and abomination.
2/19 In an interview with #America Magazine, the Jesuit announced that, it turns out, "the most brutal crimes in #Ukraine are committed by #Chechens and Buryats, because inhuman cruelty is not a #Russian tradition."
3/19 At the same time, the #Catholic priest explained his unwillingness to directly accuse #Russia of invading #Ukraine by the fact that it is "already clear." And he tries "not to specify, so as not to offend ... It is not necessary that I put the name and surname."

Thread: 17 August 2022: Day 175 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: notes the explosions on 16 August in Dzhankoi, home to one of two "most important Russian airfields in #Crimea" and "a key road and rail junction" supplying Russian forces in southern #Ukraine. "The cause ... is not yet clear" 😢
#Russia's state media is upset at the "repressions" of Donald Trump. In a strange segment, Vladimir Solovyov even wondered if "Teflon Don" might not be "[declared] a Russian spy" and if so would #Russia do a prisoner exchange "to bring Trump to Russia?".…

Feelings of Deja Vu for a student of post-Soviet affairs: Are we back in the 1990s? Moscow's December 1994 intervention in an inner-Chechen conflict was the beginning of the end of Russia's Second Republic (after the First one of Febr-Oct 1917). 1/3
Moscow's September 1999 start of the #SecondChechenWar, against the background of, probably, #FSB-organized apartment bombings blamed on #Chechen terrorists, was the beginning of #Putin's popularity rise. Now, #Chechens are fighting on both sides of the #RussianUkrainianWar. 2/3
Ukrainian socio-economic life in the non-occupied territories has returned to levels of the 1990s. Russia's economic life will soon too be back to the 1990s. Chechnia may again become a headache for Moscow. More conflict in the Caucasus & Central Asia has become more likely. 3/3

#Chechens in Ukraine: "They have their own little war in there" @vera_mironov tells @TheSoufanCenter webinar on #Ukraine-#foreignfighters

Says Chechen contingent fighting for #Russia includes prisoners, drug addicts, others who say they take orders only from Ramzan Kadyrov
MORE: Chechen units taking orders from Kadyrov "kind of settling their previous scores" but also being kept far from #Ukraine held territory so they don't defect, per @vera_mironov

There's also a group of #Chechens fighting for #Ukraine, she says
.@dbyman tells @TheSoufanCenter he's "worried there is an intersection" between white supremacist movement & foreign fighters in #Ukraine even if the numbers right now appear to be small

1/ SITREP #UkraineRussianWar as of 2022/03/15 - OBSERVATIONS:
Follow e.g. @Suriyakmaps @maps_ukraine @NuestraIraSLG @GeromanAT @RWApodcast @colonelcassad @RALee85 @200_zoka @bazaarofwar @gbazov + Strelkovs/ASB Military on Telegram and many others I forgot for updates + details!
-While fast flanking and encircling of #Ukrainian forces by #Russia would theoretically be possible on many parts of the front, the manpower for this is definitely insufficient.
2/ #Russia will still advance and has the advantage, with low probability of a chance for #Ukraine to turn the table. But due to manpower and logistics, it will take much longer.
Instead of increasing manpower, #Russia is trying to use their advantage in firepower and aviation.

OSINT/IMINT: Making images talk. (Keep in mind that using Open Source Intelligence tools & methods has limitations, *info posted here may need further verifications/confirmations. let's take a moment to analyse open source images. #osint #ukraine #chechens #hitsquad 1/3
Mapping movements with timings, this photo seems to have been taken prior to deployment, maybe on the day of deployment? Carrying bags means departure and taking a photo of all 3 means it's an important day. (left to Right: Tushaev, Martynov, Mezhidov)
Individual amongst Chechens. No patches/rankings. No weapons showing meaning he may not be interested in fighting. (mentor?). Look at the Chechen Republic aide's body language, knees are bent, facing forward, this guy may be higher up in rank. Facial rec confidence level is high.

1/15 OSINT: Open Source Intelligence investigation & the use of facial recognition. Trigger to the investigation: ➑️ Russian propaganda Military video posted on Telegram by what seems to be a Chechen Muslim fighter. #ukraine #islamicfighters #chechen #osint #Telegram #facialrec Image
Note the V identification on the tank that confirms this is the Russian military (So far, V, O and Z markings have been seen) . Note what could be a folded Red Beret which may confirm he is part of a special unit. 2/15 Image
Geolocating the vid is possible, long hours of work needed, we can start by trying to ID who this individual is. Using US and Russian facial recognition software brings various results, as well as which has good facial recognition capabilities. 3/15

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#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
