लातविया की संसद ने विदेश मंत्री एदगर्स रिंकेरिच को देश का नया राष्ट्रपति चुना है. 49 साल के रिंकेरिच 2011 से देश के विदेश मंत्री थे. रूसी आक्रामकता के खिलाफ वह लंबे समय से यूक्रेन के समर्थक माने जाते हैं. #Latvia #LGBTQ Image
रिंकेरिच के पूर्ववर्ती राष्ट्रपति एगिल्स लेवित्स ने दूसरे कार्यकाल के लिए ना खड़े होने का फैसला किया. इसलिए रिकेंरिच को नया राष्ट्रपति चुना गया. संसदीय मतदान के बाद उन्होंने कहा, "देश की संपन्नता और सुरक्षा के लिए मैं सबकुछ करूंगा." #EuropeanUnion
रिंकेरिच गे हैं. 2014 में विदेश मंत्री रहते हुए उन्होंने अपने समलैंगिक होने की बात सार्वजनिक की थी. ऐसा करने वाले वह लातविया के पहले बड़े नेता हैं. अब बतौर राष्ट्रपति उनके चुनाव से यूरोपीय संघ में पहली बार कोई जाहिर समलैंगिक राष्ट्राध्यक्ष बना है. #InclusionMatters

Hello everybody - let's get the show on the road for another week!

It's the original, the one & only daily🧵with all you need to know about what's happening in #Ukraine's defence against #Russia, which has reached day 446.

Catch up on Sunday's news here:
More very damaging losses for #Russia yesterday.

#Ukraine's figures show almost 7% of all destroyed artillery systems happened in the last 24 hours.

Vehicles, fuel tanks and special equipment also above the mean as well as killed soldiers.
#RussiansGoHome Image
The British update today questions #Russia's air defence.

It's always been a problem for Moscow after sending most of its domestic protection to #Ukraine, only to have to bring some back as #Kyiv shows more ability to hit long range targets.

Nine years ago, #RussiaIsANaziState attacked Jews of #Odesa.

Simon Wiesenthal became our map. On 24 February, full scale #RussiaIsANaziState invasion began that included targeting Jews, killing Holocaust survivors, destroying #Holocaust memorials and using Russian
Protocols of Zion propaganda again for another #Holocaust. Except Odesa Jews were ready. It will take lifetime #RussiaIsANaziState does not have to understand what we did to stop them. #RussiaIsANaziState is collapsing. We ensured it.

You Rashists are never killing Jews again.

This is the start of the daily 🧵for Day 386 of #Russia's war of choice in #Ukraine.

For all Wednesday's news, including US pilots volunteering for Ukraine, assassination plot against an EU figure and an unexplained fire on occupied #Berdyansk, click⬇️

I'll start today with #BakhmutHolds.
No big changes to report. #Wagner troops have advanced right into the centre, but it's constantly changing as the cattle get slaughtered and retreat.

Some #Russia channels claim #Khromove on the west of #Bakhmut is captured but not confirmed.
Speaking of slaughter of Russians, the number of invading soldiers killed in the last 24 hours tops 1,000 again. A large number of #Russia's troops died in an attack at #Nevelske 20km from #Avdiivka

High numbers of tanks + artillery systems too, plus the aircraft I noted y'day.

This is how it started on 24/02/22.

But it was a day later on 25/02/22, a year ago today, that, thanks to @bbcnickrobinson,
I heard a first signal of hope amid the unfolding horror.

I wondered if, for #Ukraine, it could be different this time ...
On 25/02/22 as I was pushing my sleeping daughter in her stroller, listening to @BBCr4today, Nick Robinson spoke from the roof of the hotel where he was holed up in #Kyiv.

And, looking over the city, he said something that stopped me in my tracks.
@bbcnickrobinson urged listeners to follow his gaze as he looked over this ‘modern, dynamic and vibrant European city’ ...

now, this may not seem like much, but for anyone who has followed #Ukraine for a long time, its significance would have been immediately apparent.

#Lukashenko Presidential Security Service initiated purges inside the 15 Air Defense Brigade (Fanipol):
- KGB executes the order
- 15th is a part of #Russian AD system
- reason: families involved in opposition movement or active in social media (anti 🇧🇾)
- no one to be spared
- even the technical & most educated personnel
- next stages: 1. all other AD units, 2. Air Force, 3. Rocket & Artillery Troops.
@BBN_PL @LithuaniaMFA @Latvian_MFA should expect 🇧🇾 (Air Force) defectors.

And if 🇧🇾 airman in his military aircraft is defecting to #Poland, #Lithuania, or #Latvia would he be attacked by 🇧🇾 Air Defense? What then?

Hello There !
#Denmark officially donates the entirety of its SPH (french beast) Caesar - the armored 8x8 version to #Ukraine !
See! when you want, you can... and France never stop anyone to do what they want with their purchase. Image
2/ what is also very interesting is that if 15 other countries gives at least 20 SPH, then #Ukraine would "match" current firepower of Russia (in terms of this caliber/function) because you got to remember that basically a Caesar (or equivalent) needs about 3-6 shells to do what
3/ Russians can do using 2 systems & 30 shells at least.

so yep... really really good news here..
we just need a ton of ammo right now and much much more high précisions ones.

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."

Welcome to yet another daily thread as #Ukraine moves one day nearer victory in its bid to liberate its land from #Russia's illegal invasion.

We've reached Day 316. All the news updated here throughout the day, so come back and scroll through later.

DMs open for tip-offs.💙💛
Wednesday ended in lively fashion after a quiet day. If you missed anything, the big news was from #Crimea where explosions/air defence were reported in two separate towns.

If you missed anything, take a look back here:

Let's start the thread with a chuckle, with this scene from Kazakhstan according to the poster on Telegram.

A middle aged woman telling a couple of guys from #Russia exactly what she thinks!

"Putin is a d*ckhead. #Ukraine will win. All Kazakhstan hates you!"

#RussianWarReport🇷🇺 - December 9, 2022 🧵👇

#Russia targets #Ukraine infrastructure as explosions hit Russian bases;

Serbian group denies Wagner Group partnership despite announcement;

Pro-Kremlin Telegram promote news of TV Rain losing Latvian license…
Russian forces targeted infrastructure in #Kyiv, #Odesa, #Vinnytsia, #Sumy, & #Zaporizhzhia. That same day, Ukrainian forces shot down 60 of 70+ Russian missiles. However, data suggests that Russia is not striking Ukraine w/ the same intensity as at the beginning of the invasion.
Earlier this week, several people were killed in explosions at two Russian military airfields. Russia accused Ukraine of using a drone to strike Russian targets hundreds of kilometers from the border.…

Having to explain to a Russian professor in Russia (about the Dozhd' skandal) that said professor doesn't have to use phrase 'our army', and that I would never say 'our army' about British or NATO troops. His incredulous response: 'Are you some kind of communist?' 😍😍😍
To be fair to him, we eventually got a a point where he realised he had started repeating a load of Putin tropes. "про армию и наших - это сидит на подсознании."
And then we had a fruitful discussion that reveals how hard it will be to grow true anti-war consensus because of the 'protective', for want of a better word, attitude towards the abstract institution of Russian armed forces.

🧵Fmr Ambassador to 🇺🇦@JohnEdHerbst to CNN: The #US needs to state clearly that Putin's war in #Ukraine is a direct challenge to our core interests; both US security & prosperity are at stake.

#Russia's war in #Ukraine is only a prelude to further moves into @NATO countries. 1/8
@JohnEdHerbst @NATO If Putin succeeds in #Ukraine, and moves on #Estonia or #Latvia, we'd be obliged to send American soldiers to fight and die to help our @NATO allies stop #Russia. So the cost to US in lives and money would be far greater than even the substantial aid we're sending to Ukraine. 2/8
@JohnEdHerbst @NATO Herbst: The money in weapons and aid we send to #Ukraine is a tiny fraction of what we'd have to pay if Ukraine doesn't stop #Russia there. That's why we should be doing everything possible to make sure Ukraine wins. 3/8

1) This is the cover of Good Will Hunting. Many people argue Robin William’s portrayal of a therapist in cinematic history [despite strangling and threatening the client in that famous scene]. Still, look at where Robin’s character did his best work: #Outdoors Image
2) This thread is about therapy outdoors as I was recently labelled as an “abuser”. I understand where this comes from my #research about survivors’ experiences in #WildernessTherapy. Good Will Hunting is not about Wilderness Therapy. They aren’t the same thing.
3) In 2020, I co-edited a book with Prof Nevin Harper titled Outdoor Therapies. This book examined #AdventureTherapy, #Nature-Based Therapy, Horticulture, #ForestTherapy, #Surf Therapy, #AnimalAssisted, &, yes, #WildernessTherapy.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! #Russian President Vladimir #Putin, in his own manner, "formalized" the rejection of the peace offer he received. On November 11, we reported...
that it would be precisely the next massive missile attack on #Ukraine's energy infrastructure that would mean #Putin's rejection of proposals to move to a peaceful settlement of the war in Ukraine on terms that the #Kremlin considered unacceptable.

#Putin also rejected an ultimatum that was put forward in parallel with the "peace offer." Now, the most influential Western "partners" will insist on the immediate transfer of #Crimea to #Ukraine with no delays and no compromises.
