THREAD Re. today's expected flood of "Dear #Tito" tweets:
#OTD 25 May, is birth anniversary of former #Yugoslavia leader Josip Broz Tito. Many call it his #birthday although he has been dead for 43 yrs. I do not wish to rain on their parade, merely offer my own and my family's /2 ImageImage
THREAD to clarify, question in a PM: we were a normal & pretty ordinary non-Communist family. Not (openly) anti-Communist but not collaborating with the regime in any political capacitiy.

Nine years ago, #RussiaIsANaziState attacked Jews of #Odesa.

Simon Wiesenthal became our map. On 24 February, full scale #RussiaIsANaziState invasion began that included targeting Jews, killing Holocaust survivors, destroying #Holocaust memorials and using Russian
Protocols of Zion propaganda again for another #Holocaust. Except Odesa Jews were ready. It will take lifetime #RussiaIsANaziState does not have to understand what we did to stop them. #RussiaIsANaziState is collapsing. We ensured it.

You Rashists are never killing Jews again.

Hello and welcome to the daily thread for Friday, with all the news on #Ukraine's defence of its homeland and indeed existence, against #Russia's aggression.

It's Day 401, with all the news you need!
Missed something on Thursday? Click and scroll here:

I'll start with #Russia's losses on the battlefield (as estimated by #Ukraine)

Numbers still well done on peaks. A number of factors: awful weather, and highly likely the invaders are short on cattle/soldiers and ammo meaning fewer attacks across the frontline.

Britain's Intel update for the last day of March shows another problem for #Russia because of the sanctions.

"🇸🇮#Slovenia has handed over another batch of heavy weapons to the 🇺🇦#Kyiv regime.
These are modernized Soviet T-55 tanks.

Of course, these are old machines, but due to their modernization, we cannot say that they are useless.
As the wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen have shown, even old unmodernized T-55s can solve certain problems on the modern battlefield, although they are mostly fodder for modern anti-tank missiles.
But with competent use and a professional crew, it's still quite a dangerous machine.

Well, it will not be surprising if from the Russian side sooner or later we will see not only modernized T-62, but also some variations of the T-55.

Thread: 26 October 2022: Day 245 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: the governor of Belgorod within #Russia announced on Oct. 24 that the main rail line linking Russia and #Belarus was sabotaged by "Stop the Wagons" (StW), ostensibly a "Russian anti-war group".
It does not take an especially suspicious mind to believe that "Stop the Wagons" (StW) is supported by, if not fabricated by, #Ukraine's intelligence services, which suggests a serious issue for #Russia, at least in the key war staging areas on the border.

Thread: 20 September 2022: Day 209 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Russia "officially" preparing to "annex" the Donbas in eastern #Ukraine.

Should be noted, the Russians had such plans in Kherson and Kharkiv, which were derailed by the Ukrainian guerrillas before the Army liberated Kharkiv.
Imprisoned #Russian oppositionist Alexey Navalny comments on that video of Yevgeny Prigozhin recruiting prisoners for the war on #Ukraine. Sees it as a clear sign of the disintegration of the Army and notes such recruits can only make it worse.

🧵 1/51

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.

🧵 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...

A story of why #covid is/was so bad in #slovenia, and a lesson for #conference organizers. 🧵 1/10
I'm young, healthy, and triple-vaccinated, so I'm not terribly afraid of Covid. I still did my best to avoid closed/crowded spaces, and have as such avoided infection for 2.5 years. 2/10
However, I still have a job to do @teamniteo, and that involves going to conferences. I went to 6 international ones in the past year. It's the last one, held in Slovenia, where I was pretty sure I'll get Covid, and sure enough I did. 3/10

3/5 The focus in this round of EU elections was on France. However the change of Government in Slovenia further isolates V Orban (won reelection in early April 2022) in the EU 27. EU policy formulation and enforcement has become easier.

Another night of heavy bombardment is ongoing.

Many cities hearing explosions - but most chat on social networks say the sounds seem like Russian missiles being hit by air defences. It's amazing how soon these guys become weapons audio experts.

This is #Kharkiv, no details yet
Many countries stepping up sanctions after the gruesome discoveries in #Bucha.

A host of European countries expelled Russian diplomats with more actions to come.

Meanwhile #Australia has banned exports to Russia of jewelry, wine, vehicles, leather, fur goods + any luxury items.

Breaking: 3 🇪🇺 prime ministers will be in 🇺🇦Kiev today in a surprise visit: from 🇵🇱Poland, 🇨🇿Czechia & 🇸🇮Slovenia.

Will the 🇷🇺Russians dare to continue their attack on the capital while there are EU prime ministers in it?…
It seems to me there is a very high risk of the EU prime ministers becoming trapped in Kiev.

A 36-hour curfew is starting today, the mayor just announced.
Other EU perm reps here in Brussels privately fuming about this visit, which risks being the “spark for World War 3” as one official put it.

It was apparently both uncoordinated with other allies and, astonishingly, pre-announced before they left on the train across Ukraine.
