JUST IN: #BNNCroatia Reports.

President Zoran Milanovic said on Tuesday that, Croatia can’t train Ukrainian troops on its territory as part of the EU aid program. because it would be unconstitutional. #Croatia #Ukraine #Russia #EU #UkraineRussiaWar
He said this, while responding to a request from the defense ministry in Zagreb.

Milanovic said, before explaining his reasoning. “Given the justifiably great interest of the Croatian public in the announced participation of [Croatian military] members in the EU military...
assistance mission to Ukraine, and the unclear and unexplained circumstances that participation would entail, the Office of the President has to inform the public that the minister’s proposal is unfit to be considered”.

1. This is the first time the World Cup is being played in a Muslim country, and only the second outside of the traditionally Christian world. The first was South Korea & Japan in 2002.
2. 2002 also marked the furthest a traditionally Muslim country ever progressed in the World Cup, with #Turkey placing 3rd, after beating South Korea in a very exciting game.

Welcome to the start of the daily #Russis was thread for Day 224 of the full invasion and attempt to destroy free #Ukraine.

All the news in one handy thread, and if you missed yesterday's, here's the link:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Apologies again for slow updates and responses, I am commentating on tennis most of the day again.
Doing my best!
The daily British Intel update shows why #Russia is continuing to panic. There's quite widespread acknowledgement in the Russian media now that #Ukraine has made advances, increasing the realisation that mobilisation will spread and the war will now touch most people's lives

How much is #Ukraine similar to #Syria?

Back in 2016. power of Bashar Al-#Assad was on his last legs. Insurgents took over the almost entire country, leaving him with roughly 15% of land under government control.

by Slavyangrad
All big cities were lost or heavily contested. The enemy was as close as two kilometers to the center of #Damascus.

#Syria #ukraine
Then #Russians came. Slowly but methodically, they started to bombard insurgents, which we can call a conglomerate of various ideological and interest groups, including designated terrorists such as Jabhat Al Nusra and #ISIS.

Welcome to a new week and the daily thread for Monday on #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine

Day 173

A manic end to yesterday - I'll recap a little, but if you want to scroll through, here's the link:

Firstly, you guys got me to 20,000 followers, so thank you all so much💙💛

Honest reporting, fact-checked as much as humanly possible, but I still know right from wrong.

This week I have a lot of commentary work, but will try to be as quick as ever with updates throughout.
News breaking right now is another night-time attack on #Kharkiv

There have been multiple explosions in the city so far and more rockets on the way according to tracking.

The missiles have landed near the centre according to early reports

I hope you get the chance for a peaceful and relaxing Sunday. That's something many thousands in #Ukraine haven't had for almost 6 months.

It's Day 172 of #Russia's invasion and here's the daily thread with all the news and analysis you need, updated throughout the day⬇️
Quite a bit of late action on yesterday's thread. You can scroll through yesterday's thread here if you need a catch up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Potentially good news from @amnesty

The organisation's pledged to have its' "#Ukraine report" examined by independent experts.

Amnesty International says it "wants to understand what exactly went wrong" according to Deutsche Welle.

Appointing @AgnesCallamard perhaps?

THREAD In 1995 after #Oluja I reported from #Bosnia on #Serb refugees fleeing #Croatia.
A guy, 25 driving a tractor loaded w/ women & children shouts: “Hey, jounalist, remember me?” I didn’t. “In July 91 [after Struga massacre] you told my commander ‘your parastate [#Krajina] /2
2/ can’t exist, you should find a way to reconcile with #Croatia, it is your country'. They kept telling us we’ll never lose, that Serbia is behind us, but as time went on I oft thought about your words. I sensed you were right & we were headed for our own destruction”. Then & /3
3/ there I had nothing to tell him. Every refugee said “our own army ordered us to head away from home”. It was a cynical calculation by Serb leadership (I cannot claim whether Croatian Serbs decided on their own or if Milošević & the Karadžić lot from Bosnia influenced it). /4

While Western countries criticize #China and its Belt and Road Initiative, China ignores the noise, keeps it's head down, and get's work done. Here is the new China-built Pelješac Bridge, a key infrastructure project in #Croatia. This bridge is a gamechanger & here is why:
The 2.4 km bridge connects the Croatian mainland with the Peljesac Peninsula of its southernmost Dubrovnik-Neretva County, bypassing a short strip of land belonging to Bosnia and Herzegovina. This bridge now gives Croatia territorial integrity and better access to the area (2/4)
Construction companies from Italy, Turkey, Austria, and China all bid for the job but #China won the bid as they offered the most affordable price and also offered to complete the project 6 months faster than anyone else.

First, a reminder, between 2-3pm I will be online @Independent to answer your questions in the live "Ask Me Anything" session.

Trolls take advantage to ask loaded Qs, so any more sensible comments or queries most welcome. Leave your question here now:…
#Russia continues to make no progress in #Donetsk region and still has not "cleaned up" the whole of #Luhansk yet.

Various attempts to move forward on the frontline were repelled by #Ukraine
Russian sources are still claiming they are rotating troops to cover for lack of success

I don't have any of the details of this situation in #Croatia yet (guessing it's more like she was arrested by Croatian police on an Interpol red notice??), but no country should ever extradite anyone to #Turkmenistan due to the risk of torture & disappearance in custody there.
If that is the situation, then hopefully the authorities in #Croatia will come to their senses soon. This kind of thing happens far too often: a brutal dictatorship abuses the Interpol system to try to get their hands on activists & perceived opponents abroad.
Oftentimes, it’s a low-level officer just reading things off a computer screen & detaining the person when the red notice pops up. Eventually, someone higher up sees the situation, realises it’s a dictatorship trying to abuse the international system, and releases the person.
