Flows of oil from #Russia to Central Europe have halted over a pipeline payments dispute. Authorities in #Hungary, #Slovakia and the #Czech Republic confirmed on Tuesday that Russian oil deliveries from a critical pipeline stopped due to European sanctions on payments.+
Transneft, state-owned operator of the Russian portion of the pipeline, pays transit fees to #Ukraine, UkrTransNafta, for the oil to pass through. Transneft said its July payment had been returned due to EU sanctions aimed at punishing #Russia for its war with the #US in Ukraine.
Not surprising:
After mounting a ferocious campaign on #Russia that the #Ukraine grain will save the world from starvation, two of the ships that have left ports in Ukraine after months of being trapped there are going to #Turkey, others to #England, #Ireland, #Italy and #China.

Where is #BlackLivesMatter while #Russia uses native people for its colonial war by contract enforcement? Why don't you protest in front of the #russian embassy against systemic #racism? Like many people around the world supported Afro-Americans. Solidarity!

My new article just out @ForeignAffairs argues that the #US and #China are not directly competing for #SoftPower. Instead, what we are witnessing is #coexistence of their distinct approaches and practices.… 1/10
First, I contrast the more ideational or ideological #SoftPower conception and practice by the #US with the more #pragmatic approach of #China. The #US emphasizes liberal values, whereas #China stresses material welfare and mutual development as part of its vision. 2/10
The #US public diplomacy celebrates and promotes idealized vision of #American democracy. #China promotes its economic accomplishments and fuses practical benefits with cultural programming. This distinction is especially notable in the #GlobalSouth. 3/10

Ethnic Apartheid and Intentional Divides: the Fruits of Global Strife


This past weekend, in what could only be described as an act of unspeakable terror, hundreds of Ahmaras were targeted and exterminated in the Wollega region of #Ethiopia.
The victims were young and old, men and women as extremists hellbent on inducing civil strife in my birth land loosened their animus upon civilians who were already bearing the brunt of decades of hopelessness and poverty. Sadly, this horrific
and senseless act of wanton violence was not an outlier but a continuation of a systematic attempt to destroy Ethiopia from within. The root cause of these massacres is a plan that was foisted upon Ethiopians through the auspices of a tribal junta by the name of #TPLF.

Very troubling joint statement by the #EU and #Egypt, sneaking in at a time when #Ethiopia is unstable.

The statement:
“The #EU and #Egypt welcomed the UN Security Council Presidential Statement on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD) issued on 15 September 2021 regarding reaching a mutually acceptable and binding agreement on the filling and operations of the GERD” [1]
On surface, looks harmless for untrained eyes but the key is “binding agreement on filling and operation” which is tied to water allocation. Today, proposal from #Egypt is ZERO water for #Ethiopia for consumptive water use while producing 86% total #Nile water. Unsustainable!

❗Thread 1/10
Here is why I believe the very large part of #Amhara/#Ethiopia political, religious media, academic, business, art elites continue to be a cause for innocent Amharas getting slaughtered all over #Ethiopia.

It starts with their toxic & dangerous politics.
❗Thread 2/10
Their toxic rhetoric, their idiotic alliances with elements, who're dangers to #Amhara people like #IsaiasAfwerki & @AbiyAhmedAli their unending love & nostalgia of medieval times kings & princes earned the #Amhara people enemies across #Ethiopia & made it a target
❗Thread 3/10
Its political "leaders" organize lawless bandits like 'Fano', and send them to all directions to wreck havoc on peoples of #Tigray #Gumuz #Oromia and made the people friend-less, ally-less and made #Amhara people target of unending attack.

A long range image based weather forecast thread for #Ethiopia, #NorthAfrica #MiddleEast and #India...

Occasioned by my return from Ethiopia to my home in France. These first two images show #Ethiopia on June 2nd and June 7th (today). The big rains are beginning.
These three big pictures show satellite observed cloud activity yesterday over the tropical belt in the populated hemisphere from the Western Pacific across the Indian and Atlantic Oceans to the Eastern Pacific.
The description part of this thread begins over the Indian Ocean which as you can see here - in a 16 day precipitable water forecast - is filling up with water coming in from the east.

On the basis of this GFS model forecast it looks as if the Indian Monsoon is about to begin.

Cepheus Research and analytics @CepheusCapital has released their latest Ethiopia's Macroeconomic Developments and Outlook for the First Quarter 2022.

Here is a thread 🧵 highlighting the key takeaways from the report.

@CepheusCapital @Filagotes #Ethiopia
Ethiopia’s economy faced six distinct shocks including major price spikes in global markets as well as domestic shocks linked to conflict & drought.

Global shocks in fuel, food, fertilizers, and freight cost Ethiopia an additional $4bn this year, raising total imports to $18bn.
Balance of Payments - significant increase in world prices for fuel, food, fertilizers, & freight is being covered by reduction in private capital imports, higher revenue from exports/services/remittances, forex supplies from franco valuta importers, & a drawdown of NBE reserves.

1/ A reflection about @timnitGebru's recent commenc. speech at @UCBerkeley! I've known her for 5 years now. My 1st encounter was when we met to feature her as a guest on my TV show. Our convo was great. I've a respect for her. She is someone with a solid academic/prof credential
2/ She is fighting to create an equitable digital future by ensuring AI won’t go astray. When our sisters didn’t have someone to look up to who looks/speaks like them, I was happy to have @timnitGebru on my show. I'll always be open for her to come inspire the next gen in #STEM.
3/ Her journey has been inspiring & the equity of black women in STEM was/is so important to me that I also featured her in the book that I've authored & published in 2018 so that many could follow in her footsteps. I also defended her publicly during her departure from Google.

1/ Let this infographic I put together sink in & discomfort us all to do something! With a total of 26,069,908 students (pre-primary to college), the chronic issue of access to quality education with a severe lack of essential infrastructure in place is very concerning! #Ethiopia Image
2/ This infographic doesn’t even include the very concerning data (I don’t have the figures) of dropouts at different education levels due to economic, hunger, conflict, and other reasons.
3/ Also, the teacher-to-students ratio is very alarming (pre-primary – 1:102; primary (1-8) – 1:36; secondary – 1:27; higher education – 1:32). In addition, the rate of licensed/credentialed teachers and school leaders is very low.

1/ The #Ethiopia/n government has informed the diplomatic community in the country on the “measures taken by the Government on human rights violations related to the conflict in the northern part of the country.”
#Tigray #warcrimes #CrimesAgainstHumanity #genocide
2/ One may argue however that it seems evident that PM #AbiyAhmed, #PP government, and #ENDF military leadership in #Ethiopia are ultimately politically and juridically responsible for the #warcrimes, #crimesagainsthumanity, and possibly #genocide for their war in and on #Tigray.
3/ ICRC in #internationalhumanitarianlaw commentary: “Commanders & other superiors are criminally responsible for war crimes committed by their subordinates if they knew, or had reason to know, that the subordinates were about to commit or were committing such crimes... (cont.)

I'm so sorry for you two guys for all the fallacies and fabricated article you have wrote.

#Ethiopia'n Gov't clearly indicate that any investigation by @hrw need to be made jointly with @EthioHRC, like it has been made before, ...

... which is acceptable for many reasons, which has an international recognition for its investigation experiences. However, you claimed as if it's obstructed by #GoE, which is a misleading conclusion to say that.
#GoE declared a unilateral truce since June 2021 for the reason of Humanitarian Aid delivery into #Tigray and Tigray farmers to use the time for farming as it's the onset of a rainy season in #Ethiopia.

For more than a year and a half, a largely invisible campaign of ethnic cleansing has played out in #Ethiopia’s northern region of #Tigray...

Older people, women, and children in #Tigray have been loaded onto trucks and forced out of their villages and hometowns.

Men have been herded into overcrowded detention sites, where many have died of disease, starvation, or torture.
📢 In total, several hundred thousand Tigrayans have been forcibly uprooted because of their ethnicity.

Who do I know in #Ethiopia? Do I have a friend there, or a friend with a friend there, who might like to write for @cosmo_globalist about the #Tigray War?
Likewise, do I know anyone who can write for us about the #DRC, #Rwanda, and #M23? Do you? Can you put me in touch?
These are massively important stories, with huge human significance--millions affected, displaced--yet I can barely find any news about them beyond the occasional report from an NGO.
Thank you to everyone who answered this: I'm so glad to make so many new Ethiopian acquaintances.

Thread: Suggestion 4 way forward! At the moment there is a huge coordinated campaign against Amharas in the diaspora! This is so they don't focus on exposing the suffering Amharas are facing in #Ethiopia. The whole #Report debacle should have stopped the minute a 1/
deliberately wrong interpretation was put forward to make it look like the report implicated #Fano. That is an indication that someone does not want these acts of genocide exposed! There is an audio that was leaked where they claimed I said there is no evidence for Genocide. 2/
This is the most nonsensical lie I've heard. I actually presented data that match all the 10 stages to establish the theoretical background for the ongoing genocide against Amharas a year ago. (see here: ) 3/
