1/ #Indonesia 🇮🇩 President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is heading to #Moscow to meet with Putin.

Why did Jokowi choose this moment to step up on the global stage? Here's a quick 🧵 primer.

2/ Since being elected in 2014, Jokowi has focused on #economic issues & paid comparatively little attention to #foreingpolicy. But, when the latter impacts the former, he tunes in.
3/ #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine sent food, cooking oil & energy prices up globally. For #Indonesia, this is exacerbating pre-existing economic challenges & could push tens of millions into poverty.

When will #Ukraine fall and what will trigger it?
Some thoughts about strategy:
Many people often discussing why Ukraine is holding on some undefendable places in #Donbass and by doing this, sacrificing a huge quantity of people and material.
The best current example is

the battle for #Severodonestk and #Lyssytschansk.
Well, of course I do not have inside information, but here are my assumptions.
The #Donbass (and some neighboring oblasts as well) is the industrial center of #Ukraine. From my point of view all Western, and Ukrainian
3/
intelligence and government institutions know very well, that #Ukraine will fall to #Russia. Therefore the question arose how to make it sustainably as painful as possible for the Russians, and thereby for Ukrainians, which will fall back into the Russian sphere.

We live in a world where if U disagree w/ mainstream media & warmongers leaders - who sanction entire populations around the globe (#Venezuela, #Iran, #Cuba, #Syria, #Lebanon, #Russia #Yemen #Palestine) advocate 4 weapons delivery to kill more humans - U r complicit in genocide.
The US is primarily responsible for the war in #Ukraine & pushed its policy to the point tt #Russia feels threatened by @NATO on its borders

#US & the #EU are committed to defeating Russia and r not interested in a diplomatic solution even if suffering from their own sanctions.
#Russia, for many years, warned the #US of its plan to expand @NATO on the Russian borders (#Ukraine and #Georgia).
The war is likely to drag on for a long time, Ukraine will experience huge harm and the war may escalate and spill over to other countries.

Day 119 📌 Russian occupational authorities proposed introducing the death penalty, the mayor of occupied Melitopol said. BTW, he was abducted at the beginning of the war but later exchanged. More on the situation in Ukraine is in today's brief: sharethetruths.org/2022/06/22/war… Image
As a result of the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 592 🇺🇦 children have been injured, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on June 22. The figures are expected to be higher since they do not include casualties in areas where hostilities are ongoing 😔
Decisive battles are taking place on the territory of the #Sievierodonetsk and #Lysychansk agglomerations, and the 🇷🇺 leadership demands that its troops reach the administrative borders of the #Luhansk region by June 26, – says Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar.

🧵 The election in #Colombia of Gustavo Petro, a Marxist & ally of narco-terrorists, is alarming. Dictatorships in #Havana #Caracas #Managua #Moscow are already celebrating. The spread of totalitarian socialism is a grave threat to US national security & LATAM stability. (1)
We should all pray for the Colombian people. Socialism brings suffering, death & destruction. More than 100M died globally as victims of socialist systems. Already, fear of violence & instability are driving people & capital to flee #Colombia. (2)

Colombia has long been key US ally & beacon of democracy in LATAM. In fact, earlier this year, US designated Colombia as Major Non-NATO Ally.

A socialist govt will bring dire consequences for Colombia, US & entire region. Crime, terrorism & drug trafficking will skyrocket. (3)

During the three weeks of my stay in #Vienna, I heard several times the questions: "#Ukrainian and Russian languages are quite similar, aren't they?" and "Ukrainian and Russian are like different versions of German in Austria and Germany?". So, let me explain👇🏻
First of all, Ukrainian and Russian are different languages and by no means one language. Ukrainian is not a dialect of Russian. #Moscow has always tried to pretend that the Ukrainian and Russian languages are similar. The truth is that Russians do not even understand Ukrainian
Ukrainian is the language that most closely resembles #Belarusian with which it has 29 common characteristics. Furthermore, Ukrainians can easily understand #Polish, #Czech, #Slovak etc.

Children's ombudswoman of #Russia Maria Lvova-Belova showed 31 orphans kidnapped from #Mariupol & #Donetsk region in cooperation with the Investigave committee. Children aged 7-17 will spend 21 days in 'Poliany' center in the #Moscow region before being put up for adoption
The choice of Moscow suburbs (GPS 55°43'18.21"N 36°56'58.71"E) is probably not random, as this region is currently testing an experimental procedure of adoption, created for children from the #Donetsk & #Luhansk regions (according to the ombudswoman's official site)
Lvova-Belova has actively lobbied for facilitating the acquisition of citizenship for Ukrainian orphans. Since May 30 such children may receive Russian documents within 3 months after the application submission carried out by caretaker/orphanage administration

NEW | #Russian forces are assaulting #Severdonetsk and may succeed in taking the city and areas further west. Read today’s update from @criticalthreats and @TheStudyofWar: criticalthreats.org/analysis/russi…
#Severodonetsk is important because it is the last significant population center in #Luhansk Oblast that the #Russians do not control. Seizing it will let #Moscow declare that it has secured Luhansk fully but will give Russia no other significant military or economic benefit.
#Russian forces in #Kharkiv continue to focus efforts on preventing a #Ukrainian counteroffensive from reaching the international border between Kharkiv and #Belgorod.

Fransız ve İtalyan enerji devleri ENGIE ve ENI Rusya'dan aldıkları gazı ruble ile ödemeyi kabul ettiler. ENGIE'nin %33'ü Fransız devletine, ENI'nin %30'u İtalyan devletine ait. Yani özel(!) şirketler vasıtasıyla Avrupa kendi koyduğu ambargoyu deliyor.
Oysa Avrupa Komisyonu'na göre Rus para biriminde hesap açmak yaptırımların ihlalidir ve Brüksel tarafından cezai işlemlere yol açar. Yani Avrupalılar Putin'i soykırım dahil her türlü insanlık suçu ile itham ederken Rusya'dan gaz almak için GazpromBank'ta ruble hesabı açıyorlar.

It has been obvious for a long time that Gaullist ideas are rooted in how France bemoaned its loss of Great Power status. But if you're a mid-sized European nation worried about Moscow, you want reliable protection and no artificial irritants to relations with the U.S.

But how, then, should Europeans insure themselves against a possibly more demanding or overstretched U.S.? Security starts at home, at the national level. CEE Allies are moving towards this: strong national capabilities and defence budgets are the win-win approach.

In a healthy context of high defence investment, allied collaboration will be on a solid footing, with no resentment due to free riding. The other part is boots on the ground and skin in the game. Here, another France is coming into focus -

The 87th daily 🧵 of the #Russia-#Ukraine war.

Russia's illegal invasion had a big boost in the last 72 hours.
Finally they claimed a 2nd big city in #Mariupol' while advances in the Donbas mean there's a real chance they can cut off 1000s of #Ukraine troops in #Luhansk region
But British intelligence is that #Russia is running out of drones.

While both sides are suffering big losses of unmanned aircraft, #Ukraine is able to replace but Russians are struggling

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Finland's gas supply from #Russia has today been cut off fur refusing to pay in Rubles.

However it's reported #Germany and #Italy approve rouble accounts for Russian gas payments.

Germany and Italy told companies they could open rouble accounts to “without breaching” sanctions

There were unconfirmed reports that Israeli warplanes that targeted the Masyaf area a few days ago took aim at the Russian-made (but Syrian-manned) S-300 battery. The battery is situated deep inside the Latakia mountains
One of those reports came from @WorldNewsIL here. I have also heard similar reports though none confirmed so far

By 1945, #US’s war to contain #Japan’s Asian expansionism, retaliate for Pearl Harbor & drop 2 nuclear bombs to impose its World hegemony had become a project to eliminate European empires, lead global economic order, colonise Europe & the ME and keep them away from #Moscow.
The world is definitely far from being a safer place with #Finald and #Sweden joining the military organisation @NATO, ending decades of neutrality.

#EU leaders are risking the continent's safety, provoking & challenging #Russia instead of engaging in a serious dialogue.
#Russia doesn't need to confront @NATO almost 2 million soldiers w/ classical weapons when & if confrontation wld be the last way out. This is the beginning of the end of stability.

For what? To protect the #US unipolar hegemony of the world.
