I hope you get the chance for a peaceful and relaxing Sunday. That's something many thousands in #Ukraine haven't had for almost 6 months.

It's Day 172 of #Russia's invasion and here's the daily thread with all the news and analysis you need, updated throughout the day⬇️
Quite a bit of late action on yesterday's thread. You can scroll through yesterday's thread here if you need a catch up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Potentially good news from @amnesty

The organisation's pledged to have its' "#Ukraine report" examined by independent experts.

Amnesty International says it "wants to understand what exactly went wrong" according to Deutsche Welle.

Appointing @AgnesCallamard perhaps?

Thread: 11 August 2022: Day 169 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia is highly unlikely to be able to fulfil some export orders for armoured vehicles as it needs the capacity for its own army in #Ukraine. Weapons exports have been hit because the credibility of many Russian weapons is now undermined. Image
60 members of Amnesty International in #Norway have resigned since the publication of the #Ukraine report in open protest at its contents; another 40 have left without explanation.

Previously: the head of Amnesty in Sweden and of the Ukraine desk resigned rubryka.com/en/2022/08/10/…

#Extradition is emerging as the next frontier of #Taiwan’s outreach to #Europe. My new piece analyzes the status and content of six agreements on legal cooperation between Taiwan and European countries.

Check it out at @CEIAS_eu #CEETaiwanCenter: ceias.eu/taiwan-europe-…

In criminal matters cooperation and extraditions, agreements that were signed with #Poland and #Slovakia can serve as models for engaging other #EU member states. 2/7
Among the 6 existing agreements, these two are the only broad-scope legal cooperation agreements, that include even extraditions, as the most visible and politically sensitive area of cooperation. 3/7

Important opinion piece by #Poland's PM.

Key points

1-7
Europe is in trouble not bc it is insufficiently integrated but because it refused to listen. Poland, w.r.t. Russia, is far more experienced than others. The late Lech Kaczynski, was right, but unheard.
2-7

Political practice shows that the voices of Germany and France count above all. A formal democracy but a de facto oligarchy. In addition, the strong ones make mistakes and are incapable of accepting criticism from outside.
3-7

The safety valve that protects the EU from the tyranny of the majority is the principle of unanimity.
Abolishing the unanimity rule would mean increasing the weight of Germany's view. A retrospective analysis of German decisions shows this would have made Europe worse off.

@topagrar_PL @PolskaIzbaMleka @DINtoday @HighGroundDairy @freshagenda2013 @Eucolait @AnttiJSaari1 @juliajones110 @StoneX_EUDairy @SaschaSiegel_ @dairylando As we have predicted since March, despite huge reduction of #milk production and processing, UA internal dairy use/consumption slumped due to war, migration, and deterioration of population wealth.

2/10
In July we’ve observed crush of UA internal #grains and oil seeds prices due to port’s blockade by aggressor and the eve of new crops harvesting season. Compound #feed index downed to last year’s minimal (incl. sunflower meal traded 0,05 EUR/kg).

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

Source: covid.ourworldindata.org/data/owid-covi…
🧵 2/51

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

1/ Operational update regarding the #russian_invasion at 1800 on July 30, 2022.
No major changes on the entire front line but Ru had 1 small gain (red star). #UAarmy is resisting everywhere. Some areas with Ukr progress remains unclear
#UkraineMap #UkraineRussianWar #CarteUkraine
2/ Ru tried to establish control over the settlement of #Semyhirya by storming from three directions, it was partially successful, and he established himself on the outskirts of the settlement.
3/ In the #Slovyansk direction, the enemy launched artillery fire in the areas of Dolyna, Krasnopilla, and Mazanivka. The enemy tried to conduct an assault near #Brazhkivka, but was unsuccessful and retreated.

Welcome to the weekend.
Day 157 of #Russia's illegal full-scale war on #Ukraine, but it's 8 and a half years since the start of the invasion when Putin's troops appeared on #Crimea and then later east 🇺🇦

Ukrainians fight on for freedom.
Here's the daily🧵
All the news in 1 place
The condemnation of both the castration/murder videos & bombing of #Ukraine POWs in Russian held territory, continue at high levels.

The UN says it is "shocked by the recent videos" in a statement about the torture and shooting in the head of a prisoner

facebook.com/UNHumanRightsU…
The #EU Vice-President @JosepBorrellF, commenting on the killing of around 50 #Ukraine POWs in #Donetsk is "appalled"

#Russia's Wagner mercenaries are accused of bombing the prison camp in #Olenivka, trying to make it look like a Ukraine strike.

Thread: 28 July 2022: Day 155 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: "#Ukraine's counter-offensive in Kherson is gathering momentum", with a bridgehead established south of the Inhulets River. Ukraine has used HIMARS to damage the bridges in and out of Kherson, leading Russia's 49th Army to look "highly vulnerable".
Congress has been briefed that #Russia has suffered 75,000 casualties (killed and wounded) in #Ukraine

Thread: 27 July 2022: Day 154 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia making "tactical advances" around the Vuhlehirska power station in Donetsk. Lavrov in Africa, long an interest of Moscow's, trying to blame the West for the food crisis.

Not happy with Wagner being defined as a "private military company"
#pt: "Wagner" is a unit of the #Russian military under GRU. The purpose of the "private military company" presentation is to make it "deniable" - to minimise the domestic political impact of losses and to distance Moscow internationally from its atrocities foreignpolicy.com/2021/07/06/wha…

Thread: 24 July 2022: Day 151 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia is launching ongoing "small-scale" offensive operations in the Donbas, "focused on the Bakhmut axis", but it is "making minimal progress".

- Bizarre framing that Lavrov "expanded the scope" of Russia's attack on #Ukraine; nothing has changed
Good thread on #Ukraine's President Zelensky's visits to troops at the front, an important military-civilian trust-building exercise in themselves, a morale boost to troops, a way of gaining international attention, and of providing a contrast with Putin.

Only Poles believe that their war is also going on in Ukraine. The rest of Europe is not aware of what it is dealing with
- Kasparov

war.obozrevatel.com/ukr/kasparov-n…..
...of all countries in Europe, only a few - #Poland, #Lithuania, #Latvia, #Estonia and #Finland - know "what and with whom they are dealing with" because of their historical past, but only Poles believe that their war is also going on in #Ukraine - says Kasparov
🔻
It is worth simply remembering that for eight years, starting with the annexation of #Crimea and until February 24, when the #Russian Federation decided to completely destroy #Ukrainian statehood, #Europe did practically nothing. As, however, and #America.

#Russia continues to make no progress in #Donetsk region and still has not "cleaned up" the whole of #Luhansk yet.

Various attempts to move forward on the frontline were repelled by #Ukraine
Russian sources are still claiming they are rotating troops to cover for lack of success

Many people like @StephenKing have no idea who Bandera was but call him Ukrainian hero. My study shows that the leader of semi-fascist OUN, which collaborated with Nazis & perpetrated mass murder of Jews, Poles & Ukrainians, is not very popular in #Ukraine
researchgate.net/publication/26…
@StephenKing My study shows that region & perceptions of their involvement in mass murder were strongest predictors of views concerning #bandera faction of OUN, UPA & Bandera in #Ukraine. Their public support was strongest in Galicia & weakest in #Donbas & #Crimea. researchgate.net/publication/28…
My peer-reviewed study shows involvement of Bandera faction of Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) & its Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) in Nazi genocide of #Jews, #Ukrainians, Poles, #Russians, & Belarusians in #Ukraine, #Poland & #Belarus

1/. “No one should be prosecuted for showing compassion. Not me. Not anyone”

Tmw, Justyna Wydrzyńsk will be in court in Poland facing 3 years in jail for providing abortion pills to a victim of domestic violence

@amnestyPL/@amnesty will be at the court
amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
2/. “The trial of Justyna Wydrzyńska comes at a time when the threat to abortion rights has been brought into sharp focus by the #SCOTUS decision to overturn #RoeVsWade. It’s a reminder that our rights can’t be taken for granted” @amnesty’s @AgnesCallamard
3/. The trial of Justyna Wydrzyńska
Is about to resume

“Anything less than all charges against being immediately dropped would set a dangerous precedent in Poland. It will also send a chilling message to other govts seeking to curtail the activities of abortion rights activists”

1) Just added a handful of new statements by ++Shevchuk, of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, including ones in which he likens #Russia to the "apocalyptic beast that opens its mouth on modern man" and suggests it worships Mammon.
2) To Ukrainian refugees in #Poland: "Pray for the Ukrainian State, which today shelters Europe with its breast from the war that is destroying #Ukraine. Pray that evil does not spread, that Ukraine itself, with its holiness, strength, ability to sacrifice even life in faith for
3) the sake of God's truth and the salvation of man, will be a shield that will cover the whole world from the apocalyptic beast that opens its mouth on modern man."

1. Do you want to help #Ukraine? Make #Holodomor known in every household. Take #Russian lies away. This is truth. My babushka was little girl in Ukraine. Russia wanted #Ukraine as it does now. They wanted our grain and land. They had to remove our people.
2. Stalin made plan that starved millions of #Ukrainians to death How did Russia do this?

-They confiscated all farms as state property. Farmers who fought back were executed, imprisoned, disappear.

-They pass laws making illegal for any Ukrainian to be found with grain.
3. -Anyone with grain would be executed, jailed, disappeared.

-Then came the killing of all livestock or stealing it. Burning of fruit trees, berry bushes. Fishing wells were poisoned. All food material destroyed.

#Estonia #Latvia #Lithuania #Moldova & #Finland should demolish all 5 foot tracks & make new railwaylines in #EU standards.

Track gauge is military policy. As you can see in #Ukraine it's bad thing to have same track gauge as #Russia

#Turpo #Säkpol
#Estonia #Latvia & #Lithuania don't even need west to east railwaylines. They need railwayline from #Poland to #Finland & connecting lines to their ports.

#Turpo #Säkpol
If you have ever think about why #Spain don't have standard tracks in their railways the reason is that mid 1800's #Napoleon was still the thing. Hitler of that century.

Railwaylines are still the main way to move military stuff on land. Especially in #Russia.

1/ #SunTzu is credited for the phrase “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak”. This phrase makes sense in warfare. Lets try to analyze the Russian invasion of #Ukraine in this context. Hopefully, this will shed light on the inner workings of the conflict.
2/ At this point, it is no secret that #Russia performance in the #war is mediocre. It failed to conquer Ukraine, a much smaller and less populated country. Moreover, Russia even failed to encircle #Kyiv and #Kharkiv. There is no way to hide this, the Russian armed forces suck.
3/ At the same time, Russian saber rattling is on an all-time high. Russian propagandist threaten to attack #NATO countries. For example, #Lithuania and #Poland in the #Suwalki gap and the #US in #Alaska. “Appear strong when you are weak.” #Putin propagandists know their #SunTzu.

Day 136 of #Russia's war, welcome to the daily thread documenting the most important news, events, and some of my analysis along the way.

Mercifully a fairly quite night in #Ukraine as it fights for its very existence.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
I start with news from occupied region and the #Ukraine Resistance movement.

A collaborator policeman has been shot dead in #NovayaKakhovka (#Kherson region) and two other attempted attacks which are not yet reported.

Thanks to @AlbaThunberg for help

Nice to hear #Russia is digging deep in to its reserves. 1950s tractor-pullers now being sent to fight #Ukraine.

To be honest Ukraine's tractor army won't probably even bother retrieving these bits of scrap🤣🤣

Update on Biolabs in Ukraine.
Ukraine and other post-Soviet states have become a testing ground for biological weapons not only for Washington DC, but also for its #NATO allies. The RF special operation has led to forming the final report on DTRA activity dated from 2005 to 2016
2. The data contains evaluation of healthcare, veterinary & biosecurity system efficiency prepared by a group of U.S. experts in 2016. Despite the more than 10-year-long period of cooperation in the alleged '...reduction of biological threats...', the experts have stated:...
3. '...There is no legislation on the control of highly dangerous pathogens in the country, there are significant deficiencies in bio-safety... The current state of resources makes it impossible for laboratories to respond effectively to public health emergencies...'

Day 135 📌 The size of mass graves in the 🇷🇺-occupied village of Stary Krym near #Mariupol has doubled compared to the beginning of May, as the occupiers began to dismantle the rubble of multi-story buildings damaged & destroyed by the 🇷🇺 army. More ⬇️sharethetruths.org/2022/07/08/war…
There may be up to a hundred dead local residents in each of the destroyed multi-story residential houses in #Mariupol. Most often, the bodies are taken to the Stary Krym, where the closest to Mariupol is a cemetery with places of mass burials.
🇷🇺 forces Ukrainians, who want to leave the occupied territories & to escape the shelling through the territory of #Crimea, to sign falsified documents about alleged ‘crimes’ of the Ukrainian Armed Force, says @T_Tasheva, Permanent Representative of the President of 🇺🇦 in Crimea.
