La centrale nucleare di #Zaporozhye viene bombardata con armi straniere, l'amministrazione della regione ha tutte le prove. Nella zona degli attacchi più volte sono stati trovati frammenti di armi occidentali. Secondo i rappresentanti…
dell'amministrazione militare-civile, si tratta di droni d'attacco di fabbricazione polacca, resti di missili #GMLRS e proiettili di artiglieria dei calibri standard della #NATO. Tutto ciò indica un coinvolgimento diretto negli attacchi alle centrali nucleari dei militari
ucraini, ufficialmente riforniti di armi occidentali.
Tuttavia, questi fatti sono ignorati da organizzazioni internazional

And what if there's a war tomorrow? An expert gave insight into the situation of Kazakhstan's army.

The most acute socio-economic conflicts and political contradictions are taking place in the modern world. The military-political situation is developing dynamically and the structure and nature of threats to the KZ state are changing qualitatively. /2
In this regard, the role of military force to ensure the political and economic interests of the State has increased significantly.

Some thoughts about the #Turkey membership in #NATO, its relationship with The West and the prospect of how it might going forwards.
Especially considering the problems with The West over #Russia, #Finland and #Sweden.
With #Erdogan in power, it is similar to #Russia's #Putin and his #Russia. #Turkiye got a leader that is only seeking the best results for his people. At the beginning the best development of Turkiye might have been a close relationship with The West. Yes.
But the circumstances changed.
The first very heavy and deep blow in the relationship was the coup, that took place against #Erdogan, that was staged by #NATO. Erdoğan was saved by #Russia|n information, that he got several hours in advance. It was the first and major trigger

With this thread I want to adress the question, why #Russia is winning, even though she hasn't got the frequently quoted 3:1 advantage in troops. Moreover I want to describe the Russian military strategy a little deeper.
#Ukraine #Donbass #Kiev
This quote, of course, might be right. I know a few military books, where it is described like this.
But! This quote only applies, when two peer opponents fighting each other with similar quantitative and qualitative resources and possibilities.
#Ukraine #Donbass #Kiev
#Russia and #Ukraine aren't peer enemies. Considering the land army, they are similar, but Ukraine has a massive disadvantage on the possibility to supply its troops with spare parts and ammunition. Yes, there were storages, but since Russia took out the industrial potential

A crucial voice to be heard and heard attentively from an expert, who is one of the few having the expertise and insight to make relevang comments on the menacing situation that is unfolding in the #PacificOcean.
A situation that may portend a #war of fearsome consequences.
Contrary to an opinion, common both among (some of the) experts and laymen, the #balance_of_power in this region, which is critically important for the stability of the #world_order and its #security_architecture, is far from being either clear or fixed (though we want it to be).
And, as the history of international relations teaches us, it is usually the lack of clarity and miscalculations that wars arise from. What transpires from this analysis, the #US no longer substantially surpasses #China in the military field (save for others such as economy).

- Ships’ Voices 🧵-

During war the capacity to clearly identify your enemies’ equipment on the battlefield is fundamental (1/6) #svagaiature #History #Nato #Historia
For these reasons soldiers, sailors and pilots train for a long time to recognise the silhouettes of enemy equipment and see them before being seen themselves (2/6)
But the shape of the vehicles isn’t the only way to recognise an enemy, in some cases, as with animals, they have very peculiar sounds. It’s this the case of ships and submarines (3/6)

1/5 On #NationalPeacekeepersDay, it's important to confront the myth that #Canada is a #peacekeeping country - it's not. Canada is ranked #71 in world w only 54 soldiers wearing @UN blue helmets, according to @UNPeacekeeping statistics: ⬇️ 🧵 Image
2/ In 2015 @JustinTrudeau govt came to power promising more peacekeeping, but didn't. In 2017 govt also launched #ElsieInitiative to increase women in @UN #peaceoperations, but only 18 Canadian ♀️ are on #peacekeeping. #Canada doesn't do peacekeeping because it doesn't want to. Image
3/ So what countries are doing #peacekeeping & helping the @UN? Global south countries: #Bangladesh ranked #1 w over 6K peacekeepers, #Nepal, #India, #Ghana, #Senegal & #China is ranked #10.
How about the #US, the world's biggest, most well-funded military? What's its ranking❓🤔 Image

Die #Augstein-Geschwister gehören zu den eifrigsten Propagandisten des Kreml in Deutschland, gerne erfinden sie auch Zitate. Franziska A. behauptete etwa, #Putin habe 2001 in seiner Rede vor dem Bundestag den #Nato-Beitritt #Russland|s vorgeschlagen.
Auf diese Rede wird immer wieder verwiesen, wenn es in #KroneSchmalz-Manier darum geht, die damals vermeintlich verpasste Chance anzuprangern, Russland „einzubinden“.
Tatsächlich hat der russische Machthaber und gelernte KGB-Agent den MdBs gekonnt Honig ums Maul…

Non sappiamo se sia già successo, ma prima che la storia venga ripresa dalla stampa nostrana volevamo parlare di questo servizio prodotto da @CBSNews.
In questo articolo si parla di come le armi che vengono inviate all'#Ucraina non arriverebbero sempre 1/7…
Al fronte, arrivando ad affermare che a malapena il 30% arriverebbe alle zone di combattimento.
A sostegno di questa tesi raccolgono le dichiarazioni di due persone che non hanno niente a che fare con la logistica in 🇺🇦: il primo si occupa di logistica per aiuti non letali 2/7
Fino al confine 🇺🇦, mentre l'altra si occupa di addestramento, non logistica. Nessuna delle due persone è qualificata per parlare degli argomenti trattati nell'articolo, anche se superficialmente potrebbero sembrarlo all'occhio inesperto.

Thread: 5 August 2022: Day 163 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update focuses on with the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant #Russia occupies. Moscow seem to be using the plant to rest troops, since it has protected status and #Ukraine won't attack it. Are using adjacent regions to shell the western bank of the Dnipro River. Image
Seems #Ukraine's HIMARS have been in action in Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson Oblast, destroying an ammunition depot.

Hello, welcome to Friday and to Day 163 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

Critical days after The Kremlin's tactic of carpet bombing the front line, then throwing 1000s of cannon fodder into the "grey zone" seems to be pushing Ukraine back in #Donetsk.

All the news, all day, here⬇️
The @TheStudyofWar last night reported #Ukraine "is likely seizing the strategic initiative and forcing #Russia to reallocate forces" due to threats in #Kherson.

However their maps don't include the news about #Avdiivka and #Bakhmut which I brought you in yesterday's thread
Also last night I showed the scenes in #Nikopol - and I'll tweet a new video in the next post

UK's MoD's update highlights the sheer recklessness of #Russia firing on Nikopol from a nuclear power plant in #Enerhodar, storing weapons there knowing #Ukraine can't risk firing there

@GicAriana A subset of NATO members could do that , and I’d welcome that but #NATO itself couldn’t do that as it is exclusively defensive for members.
@GicAriana The one exception was Kosovo and that’s because it was a UN Security Council Resolution that basically contracted NATO as the enforcer. But the security council isn’t going to make such a resolution with Russia being on it.
@GicAriana So asking NATO to do these things is basically asking all members of NATO to ratify a rewriting of the treaty to enable it. And that’s not going to happen , especially not in a timely fashion.

I am very glad our elected representatives made the right and sensible call here.

Such bipartisan support for such a crucial issue in global security!
#Finland #Sweden #NATO
The lone dissenting voice was Missouri Senator Josh Hawley.…
I appreciate Senate Majority Leader Chuck Shumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell working together to make sure this was as close to unanimous as possible.

"This is a slam dunk for national security that deserves unanimous bipartisan support." -- Sen. McConnell

Thread: 3 August 2022: Day 161 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Ukraine likely disabled the rail link between #Russian-occupied Kherson and Crimea; the Russians can repair it, but will remain vulnerable. Russia has begun using civilian ferries to cross the Dnipro after the destruction of the Antonovsky Bridge. Image
Instructive: #Germany’s former chancellor, Gerhard Schroder, goes to Moscow and meets #Russia's ruler Vladimir Putin, comes back insisting on the need for "peace", i.e. a ceasefire that freezes Russian gains in place and gives the Russian Army a break.

Η προσπάθεια αποσταθεροποίησης των ΔΒ, υποκινούμενη από τις δικτατορίες της Ασίας, θα πρέπει να βρει ως απάντηση μία αστραπιαία, χειμαρρώδη και τόσο πρωτοφανή, από την 🇬🇷, αντίδραση, που να μην αφήνει περιθώρια για εφαρμογή Plan B

Aggiornamento sul #Kosovo, con qualche spunto d'analisi.

Al momento, è in corso la rimozione delle barricate; non si segnalano incidenti…
"Anche a febbraio dicevate così...e invece"...e invece il #Kosovo non è l'#Ucraina: in Kosovo c'è la più grande base militare #NATO in Europa, Camp Bondsteel. Invadere il Kosovo è un suicidio militare, oltre che economico.
Poi, ci sono almeno due ragioni politiche che si frappongono al venire alle armi:
1) entrambi i paesi non sarebbero supportati, anzi sarebbero fortemente osteggiati, dai partner occidentali
2) entrambi i governi perseguono il mantenimento dello status quo

🧵#Kosovo is not #Ukraine

A new #Kosovo-#Serbia war is not - and won't be - an option, as #NATO has there its biggest mission. And this is why there will not be a #Ukraine scenario in the #Balkans, despite the desire of many to announce/foresee a new war in Europe
The war in #Ukraine has surely changed our sensibility. However, the two geopolitical contexts are very different.
#Serbia can't afford a war; #Kosovo has not a proper army. But, most importantly, they don't desire it. The status quo is more politically convenient for both.
If #Serbia send the army (not an option now), the consequence would be a disaster. And not only for the military reaction by KFOR. Eventual sanctions could literally destroy already weak Serbian economy, that is higly dependent on EU support and trade with EU member states

🔴 SUIVI - #Serbie : Les médias serbes indiquent que le président Aleksandar #Vučić se serait rendu au bâtiment de son État-major pour discuter de la situation actuelle avec le #Kosovo.
🔴 SUIVI - #Kosovo : Albin #Kurti, premier ministre kosovar, a accepté de décaler d'un mois les mesures en question concernant les plaques d'immatriculation des véhicules et les documents d'entrée et de sortie aux points de passage frontaliers avec la #Serbie.

No, in #Kosovo non sta scoppiando una guerra.
Non c'è alcun esercito schierato. Ci sono stati spari nel nord, come già in passato, ma zero feriti.

Evitate di informarvi da allarmisti e giornalisti da assalto, c'è già tanta disinformazione locale, quella nostrana non ci serve
In breve:
- alcuni serbi del nord hanno eretto blocchi presso varchi di confine Brnjak e Jarinje in protesta con disposizione che da domani impone targhe e documenti provvisori a chi entra da 🇷🇸
- su consiglio di amb.🇺🇸 il governo 🇽🇰 posticipa l'applicazione della normativa

- fonti locali parlano di situazione tranquilla nella principale città del nord, Kosovska Mitrovica, anche se si sono sentite sirene e alcuni spari

- sì, il comando #NATO ha emesso questo comunicato ma "intervenire in caso di instabilità" è il mandato della sua missione...

Cosa sta succedendo in #Kosovo?
Da questo pomeriggio a Mitrovica Nord si registrano tensioni e suonano le sirene. Diversi cittadini si sono radunati in centro città per protestare contro la decisione del governo del #Kosovo di dare il via alla reimmatricolazione dei veicoli e
non riconoscere la registrazione dei documenti rilasciati dalla #Serbia. Potrebbe apparire una questione marginale, se non addirittura banale, ma la realtà è che investe un tema identitario, in quei #Balcani che su questi altari hanno sacrificato in passato innumervoli vite.
Il presidente serbo Aleksandar #Vucic ha dichiarato in un discorso alla nazione che la polizia del #Kosovo a mezzanotte avvierà un'operazione nel nord del Paese ed inizierà a vietare l'ingresso ai cittadini con documenti di identità rilasciati dalla #Serbia.

Si è riacceso lo scontro tra #Serbia e #Kosovo, motivo scatenante le leggi che quest'ultimo ha intenzione di varare per limitare le libertà di movimento ai suoi cittadini di etnia serba verso la stessa Serbia. Eserciti mobilitati e barricate sulle strade delle enclave serbe
Secondo #Vucic il #Kosovo avrebbe intenzione di attaccare la #Serbia questa notte, lo ha detto in un discorso alla nazione
Da notare, oltre agli storici problemi che da sempre creano conflitto, che i posizionamenti internazionali di #Serbia e #Kosovo sono praticamente opposti, con la prima che non partecipa alle sanzioni contro la #Russia, il secondo che è la punta di diamante della #NATO nei balcani
