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.

On #StPatricksDay2023 I want to shout out to my compatriots from #Ireland producing some of the most incisive, compelling, and agenda-setting scholarship in global constitutional law today. Read them, follow them, connect with them.

A loooong (but very incomplete) thread 🧵
A few quick starting notes for a global audience.
I often think constitutional law research by Irish scholars is so rich because of our unique context, in a constitutional system that has one foot in colonialism and conflict, and one (today) in the rich Global North.
#Ireland's war of independence, civil war, 1922 Constitution, partition, and 1937 Constitution (still in force) sets our experience apart from the gradualist constitutional development of e.g. #Canada, #Australia, #NewZealand, but has commonalities with other states (e.g. India).

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.

Today during the new phase of #UkraineRussiaWar, I'll talk about why Nordic, Eastern Europeans and Central Asians want #Russia to be disintegrated, and how pro-Russian supporters seek to undermine these narratives. Thread. 🧵 Image
The map of Russia is very big. Including the Kaliningrad exclave, Russia borders 13 countries on land and one country at the sea. However, Tsarist and Soviet conquests also led to Russia having some sort of influence beyond the border. Image
Being an inland empire, Russia expanded via land, a different compared to typical Western maritime empires. And Russia has, for a long time, treated its colonies in a brutal, repressive manner. ImageImageImageImage

Welcome along to the place for all the news and analysis in one handy 🧵

Saturday was quiet, but here's the link in case you were busy and need a refresher:

Now for many in the #UK, today is "Happy Valley Day" - the finalé of the very popular TV series.

This morning's Intel update from the UK is the grimmest for a while. It seems they expect #Bakhmut to fall soon.

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."

They were #RussianNazis when they start WWII with Nazi Germany and plan to divide up Europe, that allied evil only end when Hitler betrayed Russia in 1941

Wednesday 11 January is Day 322 of the war in #Ukraine

#Russia continues its unprovoked and illegal invasion and continues to kill and commit further war crimes.

All the news in one place. And here you can catch up on yesterday's stories:

The last entry on yesterday's thread last night was about the explosions in #Kharkiv. And there were plenty of fireworks - literally!

Thankfully no-one was injured as #Russia's shells hit a fireworks factory in the northern Kyivskyi district of #Ukraine's second city.

There were many videos of the unplanned spectacular show in #Kharkiv.

Two rockets are thought to have hit the fireworks factory.

It's probably no coincidence #Russia targeted the city on the day #Germany's Foreign Minister visited and pledged more help to defeat Putin.

Hello and welcome to Day 289 of the inhumane war in #Ukraine.

My day started like this, no power, no WiFi, no signal... Then woken by the schoolboy error of leaving the light switch on, so at 03.45 here I am starting another daily thread documenting #Russia's crimes:
Mind you, Thursday ended like this with friends, so not all bad!

Also here's a pic I couldn't post yesterday, to give you an idea of how tricky it is to move around #Ukraine in winter with no street lights and compacted snow in some areas.
Questions should be asked in #Melbourne about who allowed this event to go ahead.

Thanks to @NMAsiaPac for alerting me to this, but the good news is the tickets were free and boycotting NAFO members have already booked them all!

SitRep - 17/11 - Another missilve wave hit #Ukraine

Daily events in the war between Russia and Ukraine. An overview of all fronts. Ukraine is mainly engaged - just as before the #Kherson offensive - in 'softening the supply routes' of the targets far behind the front line.

As usual we start with Russian losses. And captured and damaged equipment. Relatively low numbers compared to earlier days.

+400 men personnel
+7 tanks
+7 APCs
+6 UAVs
Today the #AFU airdefense forces shot down:

4x Kh-101 missiles
5x "Shahed-136" drones
2x Kh-59 guided missiles

In total about 25 projectiles were shot at Ukrainian targets. In Dnipro some heavy hits were heard and registrered.

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.

JUST IN: Two missiles reportedly hit Przewodow #Poland located on border with #Ukraine. Comes as Russia pounded Ukraine with missiles today. Local radio reports 2 fatalities. Poland is a NATO member
Being a NATO member, Poland could opt to invoke Article 5 of "collective defense" that an attack on one is an attack on all.

If Russia is culprit, such move would take Ukraine war to a whole new level
BREAKING: US Intelligence official confirms to AP that “Russian missiles crossed into NATO member #Poland, killing two people.”

This is quickly escalating. Poland’s PM is holding emergency meeting.

Day 2⃣4⃣5⃣ of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine.

All the news, views and analysis in one handy thread, updated throughout the day.

And if you missed anything yesterday, here's the link:

Today Britain's Ministry of Defence highlights the work of saboteurs on #Russia's rail network - and I've another example of this in the next tweet.

UK Intel points out the problems the Kremlin can be caused by individuals or small groups damaging railways.

Recently in #Bashkortostan they've found another way to sabotage #Russia's rail network, and no explosives are needed.

Forcing open relay boxes and setting light to them will severely hamper the movement of freight for a while. These boxes control automated signalling etc.
