🧐#ParlementEuropeen - #MislavKolakusic - député croate - dénonce le projet du #WEF de "voler votre ferme et de manger des insectes à la place" : (via Laura Aboli)
"Aujourd'hui, nous discutons du rôle de vous, agriculteurs, dans la transition verte.
@YvesPDB #Croatia
Votre rôle est extrêmement simple, vous devez disparaître.
Pourquoi ? Parce que vous interférez avec la nouvelle idéologie folle de contrôle total de la population de l'Union européenne,
pour laquelle, dans un avenir proche, la seule nourriture sera une nourriture créée artificiellement et complétée par des insectes importés de l'Est. Seuls les riches pourront acheter et manger des aliments biologiques normaux.

I appear to be accidentally watching #Eurovision.   
Austria have already won it with a filthy disco track about being possessed by Edgar Allen Poe.
Downhill from here, lads.
Poland there, channeling the Venga Boys in every way
Whereas the Spanish song is rather Moorish.

Hello and welcome to the daily thread for Friday, with all the news on #Ukraine's defence of its homeland and indeed existence, against #Russia's aggression.

It's Day 401, with all the news you need!
Missed something on Thursday? Click and scroll here:

I'll start with #Russia's losses on the battlefield (as estimated by #Ukraine)

Numbers still well done on peaks. A number of factors: awful weather, and highly likely the invaders are short on cattle/soldiers and ammo meaning fewer attacks across the frontline.

Britain's Intel update for the last day of March shows another problem for #Russia because of the sanctions.

#Ukraine: 3. RU forces once again attacked #Berestove & #OrikhovoVasylivka NW of #Bakhmut but were again repelled. Very effective UA strike at #Paraskoviivka nr Bakhmut wiped out an RU supply truck & ammo depot: #tweet100

✍️ Balkan liglerinde forma giyen, düşük maliyetlere transferlerinin sonuçlanacağını düşündüğüm, potansiyeli yüksek birkaç ismi sizlere sunmak istiyorum.

⌚ Daha önce bir kısmını da paylaşmıştım.

Petar Ratkov (19) 🇷🇸 🇭🇷 / Backa Topola

Golcü önsezileri, ceza sahası konumlanması ve xG beklentisi de yüksek bir isim.

Güçlü fiziği ve 3/5 tekniği ile birçok seviyede ve formasyonda sırtı dönük olarak kullanılabilecek ideal bir 9 numara.

Day 368 of Europe's war and welcome to Sunday's daily thread with all the information you need in one handy🧵

It's still fairly quiet in most of #Ukraine as #Russia continues its illegal war.

Here's the link if you want to catch up on yesterday's events

The death of another American soldier has been confirmed in #Ukraine.

28-year-old Afghanistan veteran Andrew Peters from #Wisconsin died 10 days ago while helping Ukraine defend its territory. Andrew was part of the International Defence Legion.
📷Wisconson Public Radio
Each day #Ukraine releases figures for the numbers of Russian soldiers killed and equipment destroyed.

Invariably it's lower at weekends. So today's numbers (covering Saturday's losses) are lower across the board. I'm wondering if a couple of units don't report at weekends?

Day 342 of the illegal war #Russia is waging on #Ukraine

This is the start of Tuesday's daily thread with all the news that matters around the conflict and wider society.

For a check back on Monday's developments, click and scroll here:


It continues to be reasonably quiet compared to the worst days of the war, but many people are still dying at the front on both sides.

#Russia continues to make ground, and according to Britain's military intelligence, will continue to do so, but without a major breaktthrough
The Wagner deserter who trekked across snowy wastelands to seek asylum in #Noway, has told CNN those who didn't want to fight were ruthlessly executed in front on new recruits.

It's Sunday 29 January, but also Day 340 of #Russia's war on its peaceful neighbour.

It's been a crazily busy evening. Both in #Ukraine and #Iran.

Welcome to the daily thread. Here's the link if you need a catch-up on yesterday's events:

Also, I ended up doing a separate thread on #Iran where drones, explosions, fires and earthquakes were all to the fore.

Here's where I tried to keep track of what is/was going on:

One of the big developing stories last night was the alleged attack on occupied #Ilovaisk.

In 2014 unarmed #Ukraine soldiers, given "safe passage" by #Russia were ruthlessly gunned down in Ilovaisk.

This video supposedly shows some of the 7 HIMARS strikes on the train station.

It's Saturday. Day 339 of #Russia's war in #Ukraine.

This is the daily news thread covering all the important bits of the conflict in one handy 🧵

If you like my work, and can afford to buy me a coffee, please see my profile.
Starting in traditional way with a chance for you to check back through yesterday, in case you missed Orban's undiplomatic words about #Ukraine, the latest big blaze in the series #RussiaOnFire or anything else during Friday.

Speaking about Orbán's stupid remarks, he's not alone in the region with #Russia also having culivated useful political idiots in #Croatia #Slovakia + #Czechia

Hopefully an election in 🇨🇿 today will sideline one more (Babiš) as @motytchak explains here:

Where will those #Leopard come from? We won't get 100 of them, most probably just three groups from Poland, Finland and Germany for now. That's why we need the USA. #Ukraine️ #FreeTheLeopards #tanks
Finnish are realistic about the issue:
"On the other hand, no European country has taken much of a lead on the Leopard issue. Perhaps we will wait and see who will take the first step."

Sunday 15 January. It's Day 326 of #Russia's heinous war in #Ukraine.

It's also the first day of 3 official days of mourning for the victims of the terrorist attack in #Dnipro.

Yesterday was tough. 90 tweets in the thread. If you want to support me:
If you want to see all the news from yesterday, the photos and videos and see how #Dnipro and other stories unfolded chronologically, this is the start of Saturday's thread:

There was a lot of criticism for @MissUniverse for allowing the competitor from #Russia to be at the beauty pageant in New Orleans overnight.

However, neither Miss Terrorussia nor Miss #Ukraine made the last 16. But the US audience gave a much warmer reception to the Ukrainian!

You are a #Roman soldier born in province of Dalmatia (modern-day #Croatia). Most of your life you've spent on the Adriatic coast, in the warm Mediterranean climate. It is a paradise on Earth. And it is the heartland of the mighty #RomanEmpire.

Your life is about to change... /1
Then, your emperor, great #Hadrian, commands you and your unit to move. Not to the East, where you could still enjoy all benefits of civilization. Or to Africa, also a place to be.

No, Hadrian dispatches you to the ends of the known world. To the cold and hostile Brittania /2
Precisely, you and your unit are sent to man the furthermost part of the northern frontier. To the Hadrian wall, which is nearing its completion. In the following decade, you will guard this remote outpost against the barbarian threat. /3

What is behind Zagreb's refusal to train AFU fighters?
A few days ago, a political earthquake occurred in the Croatian parliament. After a stormy and fierce debate, the parliamentarians sort of made a final decision: the AFU fighters will not be trained in Croatia.
Shortly before that, the country's president Zoran Milanovich refused to consider the proposal of the Ministry of Defense to train Ukrainian soldiers. According to Milanovic, this "will lead the war to Croatia."
But the country's Prime Minister Andrei Plenkovich took the opposite position. And he supported the idea of training the Ukrainian military in the country. "Some people do it for the sake of their ass," Milanovich commented on the prime minister's initiative.

🇭🇷 The amount of disrespect Croatia are getting is ridiculous.


#FIFAWorldCup #FIFAWorldCup2022 #CROBRA #Croatia #Brazil #HRV #Vatreni
That was evident from media, Twitter accounts which follow football and, of course, general public. I haven’t seen a singe poll on Twitter giving Croatia more than 10% chance of going through to the semifinals.
Let this be a lesson to those who completely wrote off Croatia when you saw they were up against Brazil. And I am not writing this in a condescending/patronizing way. I’d like you to think what you thought about that match before the start and what are you thinking right now.

❗️Embassies and consulates of #Ukraine in six countries received bloodstained packages with animal eyes.❗️
Such threats were sent to the embassies in #Hungary, the #Netherlands, #Poland, #Croatia, #Italy, the consulates general in Naples and Krakow, 1/4
and the consulate in Brno (Czech Republic).This was reported by the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nikolenko.
In addition, the entrance to the ambassador's residence in the Vatican was vandalized, and the embassy in Kazakhstan received a report of a mine attack,2/4
which was not confirmed later.

“We have reason to believe that a well-planned campaign of terror and intimidation of Ukrainian embassies and consulates is taking place. Not being able to stop Ukraine on the diplomatic front, they are trying to intimidate us. 3/4

Morocco fans making decent sound in Al Khor even though stadium is about half full/empty for this game. Perhaps organizers had tension between having enough accommodation and letting ticket-less fans enter country to buy on arrival? Small local pop. means games not full. Image

Pound for pound #Croatia has been one of the best teams in world football since independence. These two women have been on the journey since the beginning, from Boksic, Boban and Suker to Modric and Mandzukic, they’ve seen it all.…

As a follow-up to my article on the #WorldCup2022 for @PillarCatholic, a couple of notes on religious aspects of this tournament.…
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.
