1. #Lukashenko was attending the #EurasianEconomicForum where earlier #Kazakh President #Tokayev came close to denouncing Lukashenko's apparent surrender of #Belarusian sovereignty to Russia in part evidenced by the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus. Image
2. Clownish Lukashenko has been dancing through the raindrops to avoid Putin's call for a single Slavic state made up of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. With Ukraine obviously out of Putin's reach, if Lukashenko balked at the final acceptance of the loss of Belarusian sovereignty,
3. his elimination by the murderous, desperate and deranged KGB hood is not just predictable but to be expected. If there are folks ready to rise up in Belarus that time may be soon, as we await word on Lukashenko's fate after being rushed to a Moscow hospital.

The discussion on this issue took about ten minutes and resulted in the conclusion that #Lukashenko is playing ahead and will be asking for money again while showing that he is alive and well and ready to retain power in the Republic of #Belarus for a long time.

Aktuell läuft eine sehr große, vermutlich gut abgestimmte psychologische und militärische Aktion gegen #Russland. Ob und was dran ist und was daraus entsteht ist unklar!!!
Momentan kann man nach wenigen Stunden noch sagen 👇. Image
Im Oblast #Belgorod #bilhorod sollen ukrainische Einheiten stehen. RUS Grenzposten wurden vernichtet. RUS soll gerade verzweifelt irgendwelche Einheiten dorthin schicken um überhaupt mal zu sehen was los ist.
3/x eine russische Partisanengruppe soll dort auch sehr aktiv sein.

3 days ago - Lukashenko struck down by mystery illness in Moscow, rushed back to Belarus Image
Poison parade? "...Lukashenko appears to have been struck down by a mystery illness and was rushed back to Belarus shortly after attending the May 9 Victory Day celebrations on Red Square in Moscow."…
#Lukashenko was driven and did not walk only 300 metres w/Putin.

Bandage was visible on Lukashenko's hand and might have held an IV catheter.

Lukashenko's absence at the breakfast was noted... an #ambulance accompanied Lukashenko's convoy to the airport as he left Moscow. Image

If you want to buy me a coffee there's a link in my bio🙏💙💛
So what's all this about #Eurovision ?

Well to mark #Ukraine's "hosting" of the final in #Liverpool tonight, in my tweets today there will be winning song titles🎶 in some of the posts (not all)

Just for fun. Reply if you spot one, as it will help fight the shadow ban on my a/c
Give yourself bonus points if you know the country and year the song won!

Anyway if you missed anything yesterday, you can review Friday's thread here. A day when we had all kinds of everything going on:

he did not even know approximately how bad #Lukashenko's health was. #Putin thought that Lukashenko's illness was just a ploy that could be used as a cover for his refusal to pay a visit or to speak by phone. The president always dismissed reports that...

#Lukashenko was seriously ill and considered this a skilful game of the "Potato Elk" (that is what #Putin calls Lukashenko), who could fool anybody but not him. But, this time, the president was astonished at how bad things really are.

#Putin is attempting to use the #Moscow #VictoryDay parade to show #Russia’s continued influence in Central Asia but the late announcement of Central Asian leaders’ attendance likely indicates their reticence to show direct & public support of the war.🧵⬇️
2/ Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov, Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, and Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon are reportedly attending the #VictoryDay parade in #Moscow on May 9.
3/ #Kremlin-affiliated news outlet Vedemosti reported Japarov’s visit to #Moscow for #VictoryDay on April 23, while Russian media reported Tokayev’s, Mirziyoyev’s, and Rakhmon’s visits on May 8, only one day before the #VictoryDayParade in Moscow.

On nukes in #Belarus

#Russian President Vladimir #Putin discussed the prospects for placing tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of the Republic of Belarus with Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai #Patrushev. Patrushev expressed doubts about...
the effectiveness of this decision. In his opinion, #Lukashenko, in the event of even a minor political crisis in #Russia, will hasten to #Europe or the #UnitedStates to "exchange" tactical nuclear weapons located in Belarus against the lifting of sanctions.
As #Patrushev put it, "Lukashenko will arrange a month of voluntary surrender of nuclear weapons." #Putin did not change his opinion and considered such a move with the placement of nuclear weapons on the territory of the Republic of #Belarus a "good" response to...

#putin escalates by voicing his plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on #Belarusian territory.

It was planned well before. In 2020 #Lukashenko illegally seized power. In February 2022, he conducted an unlawful referendum that ditched the country's non-nuclear status. ⏬
putin voices a plan to modernize Belarusian aircraft to make them nuclear-capable and train Belarusian pilots to operate them. In December 2022, putin deployed, and in February 2023, the Belarusian reported that they started operating the #Iskander-M dual-capable missile systems.
On February 25, 2023, putin played an idiot linking his nuclear proliferation plans to armor-piercing rounds containing depleted uranium to be provided to Ukraine by the U.K.

Below a 7-point thread about The Republic of #Moldova.
What happens there, why is it important for #Europe and what can we do?
Why is Moldova important?
It is a country placed between #Ukraine and the European Union.
If #Russia would have an ally in #Moldova in addition to #Lukashenko in #Belarus, Ukraine would be much worse off and Europe would be worse off.
Who tries to destabilise Moldova?
Russia and pro-Russian Moldovan oligarchs.
They have joint interests.
None wants #Moldova with a strong judiciary, fight against corruption, rule of law and integrated in EU. They prefer Moldova to be weak, dependent and unstable.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin had two telephone conversations with two leaders of conditionally "friendly" countries. Both yesterday's interlocutors of the Russian president are tall and were born in the same year.
#Putin spoke twice last week with both, but the reasons were different. On Sunday, the #Russian president congratulated #Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdogan on his birthday and had a short conversation, checking his mood and promising to be a reliable partner.
With Alexander #Lukashenko, #Putin discussed yesterday's incident at the Machulishchi military airfield near Minsk, as a result of which one of the #Russian military aircraft was damaged. Lukashenko tried to find out the reaction and plans of the Russian president.

The Kremlin may be preparing false flag attacks on the #Chernihiv Oblast international border to coerce #Belarus into the war following Belarusian President Alexander #Lukashenko's February 16 statement that Belarus would only enter the war if attacked by #Ukraine. (1/4)
2/ The Belarusian Ministry of Defense also notably claimed on February 21 that Belarusian forces observed a buildup of Ukrainian forces at its borders.
3/ @TheStudyofWar continues to assess that Belarusian or Russian attack on northern Ukrainian regions is highly unlikely, but #Russia seeks to force #Lukashenko’s hand or blame #Ukraine for expanding the war to undermine support for Kyiv.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! The meeting of #Russian President Vladimir #Putin with Alexander #Lukashenko on Friday, February 17, as expected, did not bring any tangible results.
#Lukashenko traditionally promised to provide support in the rear and help treat the wounded, as well as assist in the training of #Russian mobilized. They agreed to more actively integrate production facilities located in #Belarus into the production chain of...
enterprises of the #Russian military-industrial complex. In fact, #Lukashenko made all these promises repeatedly and also regularly did not fulfill them. Lukashenko continues to flatly refuse to take an active part in the "special military operation".

#Lukashenko also confirmed that #Belarus has implemented more Union State integration programs - marking progress in the #Kremlin’s steady pressure campaign to formalize the Russian-Belarusian Union State across decades. 🧵(1/6)
2/ #Lukashenko stated on February 17 that #Russia and #Belarus implemented 80 percent of the 28 Union State programs including programs on customs and tax – a significant achievement in the #Kremlin’s campaign to formalize the Union State.
3/ #Lukashenko has historically resisted implementing the Union State integration programs by stalling specifically on complex customs and tax harmonization issues since at least 2019.

NEW: The #Kremlin will likely subsume elements of #Belarus’ defense industrial base (DIB) as part of Moscow’s larger effort to reequip the Russian military to support a protracted war against #Ukraine.

Latest campaign assessment w/ @criticalthreats:
2/ Belarusian President Alexander #Lukashenko stated during a meeting with #Putin in Moscow on February 17 that #Belarus’ aerospace industry is ready to produce Su-25 ground attack aircraft for the Russian military with the support of Russian technology transfers.
3/ #Lukashenko stated that the Belarusian state-run Minsk Automobile Plant began making components to support Russian KAMAZ (a Russian heavy-duty truck producer) products & expressed willingness to help #Russia produce electronic components to substitute for lost Western imports.

Belarusian President Alexander #Lukashenko reiterated his longstanding boilerplate rhetoric that Belarusian forces will attack #Ukraine if Ukraine or the West attacks #Belarus.
2/ This is not extraordinary — Lukashenko has parroted this narrative since February 2022, and his decision to reiterate it today is likely part of long-running Russian information ops suggesting that Belarusian conventional ground forces might join Russia’s invasion of #Ukraine.
3/ ISW has written at length about why #Belarus is extraordinarily unlikely to invade Ukraine in the foreseeable future. We continue to assess that Belarusian forces remain extremely unlikely to invade #Ukraine with or without Russian forces.

Yesterday, during a meeting with the leadership of the security and military blocs, #Putin expressed extreme irritation over #Lukashenko's recent statements regarding how the CSTO member countries need to take a stance because literally "soon" "something" should begin.
According to #Putin, #Lukashenko himself is not going to participate in anything, and with such statements, he is pushing the CSTO to collapse. After the meeting, the president was immediately presented with two secret reports through the Security Council...
on incidents with alleged "UFOs" over the territories of several countries. One of the reports was the work of #Putin's friend Mikhail Kovalchuk, who has become a proxy at the Security Council. Kovalchuk's report with the intriguing title...

Pavel #Slunkin può dire "io c'ero".

Non è chiaro se con orgoglio o con rimpianto, ma lui al Palazzo Presidenziale di Minsk, mentre #Ucraina e #Russia firmavano il loro cessate il fuoco l'11 febbraio 2015, davvero ce l'ha messa tutta per favorire una pace duratura tra i due
Paesi. Lo ha fatto nelle vesti di diplomatico bielorusso, sherpa fra altri sherpa, testimone di una Storia che col passare degli anni ha smarrito la maiuscola.
Nella capitale della #Bielorussia di #Lukashenko si riunisce il Formato Normandia: è la locuzione con cui ci si
si riferisce al gruppo composto da #Francia, #Germania, Russia e Ucraina. Prende il nome da quanto accaduto pochi mesi prima, il 6 giugno 2014, quando i rappresentanti di questi stessi Paesi si incontrano a margine del 70esimo anniversario dello sbarco in Normandia.

#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.

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