When you see people having #EU flags in #Ukraine or in #Georgia (can’t be 100% sure I am not Georgian) it’s not about praising this institution. It’s about the direction of our development. For us it’s a symbol of democracy, human rights, the rule of law. Which is
opposite to what russia and communists groomed in our societies: corruption, banditry, police lawlessness, nepotism, dictatorship, class division of people, inequality on an ethnic basis, eternal condemnation of the privacy of other people, their appearance, and so on.
To some without experience of life in the Soviet Union, it may seem that there was no banditry, inequality, poverty, and so on, but they are wrong. Here are some examples of the “folk art”, idioms of those times: “everyone is equal, but there are some more equal than others”

Un manoscritto dalla grafia incerta, scarabocchiato in una stanza d'ospedale e consegnato ai giornalisti. Sarà questo l'ultimo atto pubblico dell'ex presidente della #Georgia, Mikheil #Saakashvili?
Dell'omone che vent'anni fa fece irruzione nel Parlamento della capitale, almeno in apparenza, non è rimasta traccia. All'epoca costrinse alla fuga l'illegittimo presidente Shevardnadze, sottraendo la Georgia al giogo sovietico. Vi riuscì imponendo la legge dei numeri al
tentativo di truccare le elezioni, la sua forza a quella dei filorussi, agitando come simbolo delle rose. Ricche di spine, sì, ma comunque preferibili al deserto di diritti e povertà.

This is the daily thread (number 382) for Sunday 12 March 2023, covering #Russia's illegal war

All the relevant news from #Ukraine, reliable reporting, verified where possible and updated around the clock.

Missed yesterday? No problem, click and scroll:

A small part of Antarctica has been de-Russified.

#Ukraine scientists at the Vernadsky Academy changed spellings on the signposts for cities such as #Odesa and #Kropyvnytskyi, while they added symbolic places such as #Mariupol, #Kherson and #Bucha.

Near #Kreminna towards the north of the active frontline in this war, there is an admission from #Ukraine's Command that #Russia has gained a little ground.

They report enemy units moving forward in the forest with the aid of armoured vehicles.

Il partito "Georgian Dream" ha ritirato la legge sugli agenti stranieri sotto l'assalto dell'Occidente "tollerante" e dei suoi stessi attivisti orientati a Soros.

La Georgia ha preso la decisione giusta ritirando questo disegno di legge?

Gli Stati Uniti vogliono iniziare una nuova guerra, questa volta tra Russia e Georgia…

Ore prima che il disegno di legge fosse ritirato, il primo ministro georgiano Irakli Garibashvili ha ricevuto una telefonata dal consigliere del Dipartimento di Stato americano Derek Chollet.
Ne ha parlato sui social.

Va notato che il Dipartimento di Stato americano,

Saturday is Day 381 of #Russia's attempt to obliterate #Ukraine from the map, to destroy an independent nation and centuries of culture.

This is the only thread you need for all the news and developments around the war, here's y'day's thread to catch up:

Starting today with the British Intel update. London confirms that #Wagner troops have reached the centre of #Bakhmut. However they explain why #Ukraine is still holding #Russia at bay in the #Donetsk town.

They don't supply a map, so I've added 2 from Google + DeepState to help
There are so many exaggerations, lies & fakes in all wars; I guess these days it's easier, quicker to spread + difficult & time consuming to try to spot fakes.

But here's one. As news of Leopard tanks being deployed by #Ukraine, a crude photoshop of a🇷🇺 chevron on an old photo

#Georgia: The “foreign agent” law is officially dead. In the second reading, 35 of the 58 deputies present voted against it. The massive protests against the law, together with external criticism of the West, produced the "sandwich effect" which has efficiently led to the⤵️
following results: 1) This law itself is nullified and nothing similar will be proposed in the near future by part of the ruler party; 2) This positive precedent represents a “lesson learned” for both the public and the ruling party (the former can wield power if it sticks⤵️
together and the latter is not immune from accountability); 3) The public can be mobilized to pressure the govt to adequately implement the EU requirements for the EU candidacy. These protests demonstrated that the govt can be forced to compromise with the public interest;⤵️

Washington did not allow #Georgia to become sovereign.

The theory of American exceptionalism is that only the United States has the right to make independent decisions, and everyone else must exist according to the rules dictated by Washington.
Any state that disagrees with this runs the risk of receiving a “color revolution” in response.

Every country strives for independence. Only sovereign states have a future. Everyone understands this, but few were able to exercise their right.
We are for a multipolar world and a just world order.
The United States is for a unipolar world and its hegemony in it.

For many who have heard about the events in Georgia, the question arises: what happens if some bill on foreign agents could lead to such a confrontation?

🇬🇪 In the center of Tbilisi, about 300-500 people have already gathered to participate in today's rally, despite the repeal of the bill on foreign agents, which became the cause of mass protests (TG channel Nikolay Levshits).
The participants of the protest action in Tbilisi put forward 2 demands

🇬🇪 The Georgian opposition calls on people to go to protest actions even today, despite the withdrawal of the bill on foreign agents. Thus, the opposition "Green" movement of Georgia calls to start the action at 6:00 p.m., to block traffic on Heroes' Square, -

En #Georgia🇬🇪 se siguen produciendo manifestaciones contra la decisión del Parlamento de ese país de aprobar una legislación que regule las ONG extranjeras
Los políticos occidentales hacen declaraciones en apoyo a los manifestantes y condenado la decisión legislativa
Hilo👇 ImageImage
Lo curioso es que en #EEUU🇺🇸 desde 1938 existe una legislación similar a la que el parlamento georgiano tramita, Ley Fara. Image
Otro detalle es que en el 2021 cuando en El #Salvador también se discutía una ley similar políticos occidentales y organismos internacionales tomaron la misma posición que ahora con respecto al caso georgiano Image

#Georgia: The ruling party has decided to avoid political and geopolitical costs and has withdrawn the “foreign agents” bill. It was an action of self-harm, which came about as a result of monopoly power and a lack of real “checks and balances”. GD will have a hard time⤵️
recovering its legitimacy. However, it is too early to say that the opposition has managed to capitalize on the street protests. The polls will show how profoundly the legitimacy of the ruling party was affected. One lesson to be learned is that the EU needs to be⤵️
more preemptive and articulate in its public positions on ALL reforms made by the govt as part of the enlargement process. Furthermore, civil society can use this victory⤵️

Day 379 of #Russia's attack on #Ukraine, here's my daily thread.

The fierce fighting around #Bakhmut and other hotspots in the east continues.

Bakhmut is 35 miles (55km) from #Kadiivka in #Luhansk region which has been under Russian control since 2014.
35 miles in 379 days!
Yesterday's link for the thread is here⬇️
Luckily, a quiet day with #Georgia's heavily Russian influenced Govt taking most of the headlines.

More death and destruction from #Russia already this morning.

Four people are dead in #Lviv region after local officials say a rocket hit a residential area.

Rescuers are still searching debris in #Zolochiv.

1 Pay attention to #Georgia 🇬🇪 today! A THREAD Last night police in Tbilisi forcibly dispersed a protest against a new Foreign Agent law rushed through parliament. It’s an escalation by the ever more authoritarian Georgian Dream govt
2 For good coverage see the websites of @CivilGe
@JAMnewsCaucasus @OCMediaorg (and its @mari_nikuradze) All are small independent outlets, which are incidentally threatened by the new legislation. Also look at @formulaGe who had these iconic pictures
3 The bill and crackdown are a massive challenge to the EU, which offered GE conditional candidate perspective last year. “This law is incompatible with EU values and standards. It goes against Georgia’s stated objective of joining the European Union,”…

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President #Putin was presented with several reports on the current situation in #Georgia, where the local parliament approved in the first reading a bill on "foreign agents", which caused a massive protest.

with poison transferred by the Russian special services and on the personal instructions of the President of #Russia, and about the preparation of an assassination attempt on Prime Minister of #Georgia Irakli Garibashvili from Russian interested parties.
