The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER #MH17 flying from #Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on 17 July 2014 was shot down by a Buk surface-to-air missile system over the eastern #Ukraine
The JIT and several groups of journalists have conducted a remarkable investigation. How, from where and by whom the Buk was delivered to the launch site and even the names of people involved in the launch are known. We won't go into these details. Anyone can find the materials
However, so far there has been no clear answer as to who the mastermind of the crime was and what his motives were. It's clear that it was #Putin, although the international institutions involved in the investigation are shamefully silent on the matter. But what are the motives?

Putin meant to grab #Ukraine & drive wedges between #NATO & #Russian-bordering nations.
Instead, he's evoked unification of economic, military & political forces across Europe, G7, the @EU @imf @WorldBank & @NATO into a block of unprecedented unity & resolve, that met today.

2/ It's been called the strongest alliance since WWII. But today's @NATO declaration, coupled w/alliances #Biden has formed, leaves #Russia isolated, issues a clear call-out to #China & makes ironclad an all-of-Europe mutual defense posture that's quite unprecedented.

3/ This is one of the most historic declarations of the last century. It quite simply realigns the world, geopolitically -- going well beyond response to the #russianinvasion of #Ukraine . We are witnessing a crushing defeat of #Putin's masterplan to divide the West.

#BiologicalWeapons #Thread
1/ On 4 April the 9th #1972BWC Preparatory Committee will convene until the 11th.
It had been proposed to have a 1-day meeting, basically to decide on postponing the PrepCom until later because the NPT Review Conference was rescheduled to August, ...
2/ ... which meant overlap with the dates foreseen for the BTWC RevCon.
Also, the Non-Aligned Movement is still not able to find consensus on nominating the President for the BTWC RevCon.
However, a BTWC state party had to break the silent procedure, as a consequence of which ...
3/ ... the full PrepCom meeting will go ahead.

What can we expect to happen?
Well, after 3 sessions in the #UNSC accusing #Ukraine of harbouring #BiologicalWeapons programmes funded by the #USA, the #EuropeanUnion and #Germany in its laboratories, and ...

Can't get over how this whole genocide is a macro example of how coercive control/abuse turns into deadly violence. 1st they get you to alienate or withdraw from those around you, make false promises, make you believe you can trust them. Then... 1/4
Comes the gaslighting, the fake stories to everyone around you to make you seem irrational, then when you or anyone begins to question them they get physical. Now, they try and convince you it isn't their fault(someone else made them do it), let's just talk it out, they say: 2/4
If only YOU do x,y,z then THEY won't hurt you anymore. That's a lie, the next time will be worse, then if you try & escape/get help they threaten to kill you, everyone you love, and even threaten to kill themselves(nuclear). We see this dynamic on a micro scale all the time! 3/4

Our new polling shows: the steps taken at EU level since the #RussianInvasionOfUkraine seem to be the minimum the European public expects. Europeans are calling for deeper long-term cooperation on #security matters at EU level. | A thread👇 (1/9)…

Confidence in national political systems is at a low ebb across Europe, with a majority of Europeans (58%) holding the view that ordinary voters have almost “no impact” on today’s politics. 🇪🇺 But support for EU institutions, however, remains high! (3/9) #ECFRdata

@ACGeoEcon #Sanctions Dashboard is out. Surprise, it's all about #RussiaUkraine. We use #dataviz to compare sanctions across countries, how #Oligarchs are connected to each other and why freezing #reserves is driving #Russia towards default.🧵w gifs below.…
First, let's look at who has sanctioned what in #Russia since the #InvasionOfUkraine. The US and EU led the way. This is just entities and individuals. Keep going 👇
Next we turn to the big whopper, the freezing of 60% of #Russia's central bank reserves over night. #ruble is now at 120/USD. Analysts see credit #default trajectory. US couldn't do this alone with only 8.5%. This is international unity at play. Not done though!👇
