Today, the #Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs published an evaluation report of its contribution to the Resolute Support mission in #Afghanistan that *pulls no punches.*

I'll string together its primary findings in this THREAD. 1/n Image
(You can find the full report and an executive summary here:…) 2/N
Before the findings, a quick comment: the Dutch MFA produced this report b/c "Dutch contributions to missions under Article 100 of the Dutch Constitution are subject to an obligation to evaluate the deployment after it's been completed"

Wish the US had a similar requirement. 3/n

One of the biggest challenges for #solar and #wind is integrating more renewable energy into the power system. How can we do this effectively? #renewableenergy #cleanenergy
To encourage the buildout of renewables, we need strong financial incentives. Finding the right mechanisms is crucial for a successful energy transition. #renewableenergy #financialincentives
Impressive! #Denmark consistently meets 85% of its weekly energy needs from #renewables. They are leading the way in sustainable energy production. #cleanpower Image

Hello & welcome to Day 432 of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine.

A new day, a new month; for many countries a public holiday so enjoy your day and check back here for the latest updates.

To support what I do, a virtual coffee can be sent here:
Did you have a busy Sunday and miss something?
Here's a chance to catch up on what you missed, such as more attacks on #Ukraine, another sacking by #Putin and partisans in #Moscow plus more...

The Intel update from London today talks about defences and optics. For me the last sentence is very important.

Because it happens seldom in free countries, many "Russia experts" forget the lengths and expense Putin will go to just to fool the people.

Hello again and welcome to the daily #RussiaUkraineWar 🧵for Wednesday 19 April.

Today marks the end of 60 weeks of fighting since the invasion. Day 420.

Feel free to reply to any post to try to beat the Twitter algorithm and buy me a coffee if you enjoy my work (see profile)
As usual, here's a link to the start of yesterday's thread as I know many like to catch up on what they missed.

Tuesday ended with a bang in #Russia as a drone hit an army registration office.
Also attacks in #Kherson + #Zaporizhzhia and much more:

Very disturbing article here showing the extent of #Russia's spying on pretty much all of us.

Seems pretty much all embassies are just used as centres of espionage.

I am currently sat in Mother Theresa airport (did you know there was such an airport name?) - I'll give the city/country in the next tweet, a little quiz to start your weekend!

Friday turned out to be quite busy for #Ukraine news, here's the link:

So, the answer to the conundrum? The airport named after Mother Theresa is in Tirana, capital of #Albania. A taxi ride over the border from Montenegro & now two flights to get home.

Thank you @CLies13 who's just bought me multiple coffees to keep me going at airport lounges💙💛

#Putin Ups the Ante With Nukes in Belarus up till his arse into the #nukes…
Putin is also trying to conflate his own plans in Belarus with the long-standing US practice of stationing nuclear bombs in Allied nations such as Belgium, the #Netherlands, #Germany, Italy and Turkey. But those arsenals — whatever their merits at the time — date to the Cold War.
Neither Washington nor any other capital in control of nuclear weapons would dream of placing such warheads closer to Russia in the current state of tension. You wonder if that polite stand off between the West and Russia relations will continue. Putin showing no turning back

There's been criticism of the detail (esp re #Poland, which has already delivered Leos) - but @JeremyCliffe's main point is right.
▶️I'd actually take it further (it's not about #Germany but about #Ukraine), which is why we need to talk about #Finland🧵…
I've repeatedly praised #Finland's approach to standing up #Russia & have written on its own #Zeitenwende in joining #NATO.
I've also repeatedly praised @MarinSanna as a figurehead of #NeoIdealism - who's been wonderfully clear on how & why #Ukraine must win & RU must lose
So, to be clear, this is not a general critique of🇫🇮or '🇫🇮 bashing'!
- BUT on the tank issue, I think #Finland has got it wrong.
- According to public info they have agreed to send
3 Patria Leopard2R heavy mine breaching tanks
