Durfte mir neben Bohrmaschinen heute im Radio das Gejammer über Steinmeier anhören und wie bitter böse doch der #Selenskyj ist und überhaupt das die Ukraine doch einfach aufgeben soll, einen auf Ghandi machen und die Russen einfach drübersteigen lassen sollen oder so...
Leute? NEIIIIINNNN?
Es wurde immer vor Putin gewarnt und Typen wie Steinmeier oder insbesondere Schröder haben nicht gehört und sich vollstopfen lassen mit russischen Geldern und jetzt steht man da und kann nicht ohne eines der größten Arschlöcher dieser Welt. #fckPutin
Und Pazifismus ist ja schön und gut. Abrüstung ist auch super, in einer Welt in der das alle praktizieren. Der Ukraine Krieg zeigt aber das wir NICHT in so einer Welt leben.

Und niemand will freiwillig das Opfer sein, außerhalb einer BDSM Beziehung zumindest.

A statement by Russia’s Defense Ministry said the goals of the “first stage of the operation” had been “mainly accomplished,” with #Ukraine’s combat capabilities “significantly reduced,” and it would now focus on securing Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region. nytimes.com/2022/03/25/wor…
The Defense Ministry statement was ambiguous about further possible Russian territorial ambitions in Ukraine, where its ground forces have been mostly stymied by the unexpectedly strong Ukrainian military response.
The statement suggested the possibility that the Russians were looking for a way to salvage some kind of achievement before the costs of the war they launched a month ago became impossibly onerous.

In a bizarre speech on Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin compared the world’s reaction to his invasion of Ukraine to the controversy surrounding J.K. Rowling, saying they are both experiencing 'cancel culture.'
Putin said in his speech, 'They recently canceled the children’s author [J.K.] Rowling because she …. didn’t satisfy fans of so-called gender freedoms.' He went on to say about Russia: 'They are now trying to cancel our whole 1,000-year-old country, our people.'
Rowling has been widely criticized in recent years for her stance on gender and the transgender community.

Vladimir Putin has claimed the West is trying to “cancel” Russia for its traditional views, much as it did to JK Rowling for her views on trans rights thetimes.co.uk/article/west-t…
In a speech delivered to a gathering of Russian artists on Friday, the president decried western “cancel culture”, which he said was now trying to eradicate Russia’s contributions to the cultural canon
🗣️“They cancelled Joanne Rowling recently. The children’s author — her books are published all over the world — fell out of favour with fans of so-called gender freedoms, just because she didn’t satisfy the demands of gender rights"

There is a recent BBC article which uncritically repeats Putin's demands of Ukraine, as narrated to Turkey.

@olya_rudenko already did the job of describing the Ukrainian people’s reaction to these.

If you’re thinking “Well, why doesn’t Ukraine just agree to Putin’s demands, and sue for peace,”

I’d like to describe what a JUST peace settlement would look like, from Ukraine's perspective.

My thoughts on Ukraine at 2 week mark of the war

Luckily for freedom and the people of Ukraine, the war is going reasonably well for Ukraine (horribly badly for Russia) in a general sense, after first two weeks.

Slava Ukraini, Heroiam Slava

But this is VERY early, and much..
The Ukrainian leadership was prepared, and has led the early war well. Ukrainian soldiers are fighting bravely & hard

Russian battle plan was ... perhaps too optimistic (at least in North) and bogged down. In South has had very hard time making slow progress.
Russia dominates in air but with heavy air losses, seems to be moving to night flight operations

As the Russian army seems to be getting its ass kicked in numerous battles, they are turning in a cowardly way to bombard civilians instead. That is barbaric

Mariupol Minefield Thread 1/

The International Red Cross has confirmed promised 'humanitarian corridor' offered to Ukrainian civilians trapped in city of Mariupol, had been mined by Russia. Landmines to maim civilians

I need to explain this industrial scale sadistic torture
Mariupol Minefield Thread 2/

Mariupol is a city of nearly half a million. Same size roughly as Tampa or Minneapolis, a bit bigger than New Orleans or Cleveland. It is at SouthEastern edge of Ukraine near Russian border so Russian army quickly encircled the city. Laid siege to it
Mariupol Minefield Thread 3/

Immediately on invading Ukraine, Putin shut down electricity, gas, food & water to Mariupol. And cut off the HEAT. Mariupol is about same latitude as Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg. It is winter & Mariupol is colder than Detroit, Chicago or Minneapolis

1. This History Thread is a backgrounder on how Feb. 1, 2021 Russia-backed coup in Myanmar (Burma) relates to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine & response. Military & diplomatic support from Russia have enabled the Myanmar coup regime. 🌿#WhatsHappeningInMyanmar #IStandWithUkraine 🇺🇦
2. In 2010s enabled by Myanmar crony Tay Za, Russia outpaced China’s arms sales to Myanmar. Russian sold Myanmar military MiG-29 jets, helicopters, Yak-130 training/attack jets, air defense missile systems, Su-30 fighter/attack aircraft, drones. irrawaddy.com/news/burma/bur…
3. Just before Myanmar military’s Feb. 1, 2021 coup, Russian Defense Minister General Sergei Shoigu visited Myanmar to finalize a new deal to supply arms to the country. Many have considered this a go ahead meeting for Gen. Min Aung Hlaing’s coup. irrawaddy.com/opinion/analys…

Mig 29 and F 16 Thread 1/

Let me explain the plan to send Mig 29 jets from Poland (and Romania etc) to Ukraine's air force

This photo has both jets, in Polish insignia. The two planes in middle are US made F 16 Fighting Falcon jets. The outer planes Russian made Mig 29 Fulcrums Image
Mig 29 and F 16 Thread 2/

The Ukrainian air force is SEVERELY outnumbered, more than TEN to ONE. Ten Russian fighter jets for every one Ukrainian fighter jet. They need desperately, urgently DOZENS of jets, just to help the odds a LITTLE BIT (to about 9 to 1 against)
Mig 29 and F 16 Thread 3/

This is the Mig 29 Fulcrum, a Russian-made jet fighter from the 1980s, that Ukraine's air force flies, in Ukraine air force colors. It is their best jet fighter. In very rough terms, is comparable to early models of F 16 Fighting Falcon of US Air Force Image

I do not have all the answers. Geopolitics and the balance of terror are complicated, and must be managed delicately. However, in the 21st century, we cannot ignore the human security agenda. We can never return to the 1980s when massive human rights violations were ignored.
Even in the 1980s, there came a point in the Cold War that ordinary people took the lead in fighting human rights abuses and violations. Even though South Africa was an ally of the West against Communism, people of my generation took to the streets to demand the end of Apartheid.
There was much push back from institutions and people in powerful positions. But students and anti-Apartheid activists won the day. And Canadian PM Brian Mulroney led the charge within the Commonwealth to expel and sanction the South African Apartheid regime.

E' inutile che cerchiate di convincermi che la guerra è brutta (lo so da me) e che la pace deve trionfare e le armi tacere (davvero, ci arrivo da solo). 1/19
E' inutile anche che mi spieghiate che quegli altri quella volta, in quel frangente, eh, ma la NATO.
È guerra, capite? Due nazioni sono in guerra, ogni guerra parla per sé e cercare paralleli o giustificazioni sciorinando eventi passati è esercizio sbagliato per definizione. 2/19
È guerra, capite? Non c'è spazio per i distinguo filosofici, per i "ma se", per i colpi di fioretto, per le locuzioni auliche e per i ragionamenti complessi.
La diplomazia è politica, quindi arte del compromesso. La guerra polarizza: o stai di qua o stai di là. 3/19

"No Fly Zones" a thread:
The term 'No Fly Zone' (NFZ) is being completely mis-used re. Ukraine.
A true NFZ is established to deny an opposing force the use of its air assets. We did this (or tried to) in Iraq & Bosnia in the 90s. Some fast air was engaged, though helicopters A sliver Tornado F3 fires a sidewinder missile in a burst of

Iraqi Air defence assets were also engaged.
In Libya 2011, what politicians WRONGLY called a "NFZ" was established.
It quickly became an opportunity to destroy the Libyan regime & its military infrastructure

Der Einmarsch Russlands in d Ukraine war ein schwarzer Tag für ganz Europa. Die weiteren Eskalationen haben die Situation verschärft.

K1 (9) kam heute aus der Schule und erzählte, dass sein Schulfreund sehr traurig sei. Ich fragte weshalb.
Was nun kam, traf mich mitten ins Herz und bewegt mich bis jetzt sehr.

Sein Schulfreund ist ein Kind mit Migrationshintergrund. Er ist in Deutschland geboren.
Seine Eltern kommen aber aus der Ukraine. Die Großmutter wohnt noch dort. Dieser kleine Junge war völlig aufgelöst und erzählte unter Tränen, dass er Angst um seine Oma hat. Er befürchtet, dass er sie nie wieder sieht. Meinen Sohn traf das sichtlich bis ins Mark.
Er fragte mich, ob ich auch hier bleiben müsse, wenn der Krieg kommt. Sein Freund erzählte ihm, dass alle Männer in der Ukraine das Land nicht mehr verlassen dürfen, weil sie zur Landesverteidigung eingesetzt werden sollen.

why does this sound like an ambush/set-up for a bigger war and belarus will be an initiator? pripyat's ukrainian-belarusian border is near chernobyl, and we all know putin's forces took over chernobyl a few days ago. chernobyl is naturally deserted because of the nuclear (1/n)
fallout and putin could just easily instigate a set-up in favour of himself (i.e., attacking the delegates and them firing back could be a case of "they started this first".)

the least putin can do to show sincerity (if he still has it) is to allow broadcast of peace talks (2/n)
so it can be transparent to the citizens of russia, ukraine, and belarus. or else... this won't end here.

no one wants this war but you, putin.
Нет войне!

Guess who wants to abolish NATO: Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Why?
A fundamental battle between democracy and fascism has been building again for years. I hope this is the moment that stops the rising tide of autocracy.
Yes, @HillaryClinton was right 7 years ago: Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s puppet.

Russia's invasion of Ukraine is terrifying, tragic and infuriating. There are so many good takes, I'm going to stick to what I know - energy & decarbonisation and how this invasion could & should lead to the turbo-charging of the deployment of the "heat pump." Explainer🧵
Despite what many (uniformed) commentators say, the biggest use of gas in Europe is for heating buildings (water & space) not for power (though that is second). See @laurimyllyvirta's great thread for a graph on this 👇
Russia supplies ~30% of Europe's gas, making it extremely powerful. The the best way to reduce reliance on Russian gas, is to replace gas heating in European buildings (and buildings around the world), with a clean, renewable powered, electrified alternative. Enter the heat pump.
