Some #European companies are still helping #Russia maintain their military-industrial complex, despite the #sanctions!

Now I will tell you about it in detail!
Europe imposed sanctions against #Russia after the annexation of #Crimea and the occupation of #Donbas back in 2014. Since then, the sanctions have been extended. But several companies still managed to get around the sanctions: from #Switzerland, #France, and #Germany.
3/10 Last week I was at the positions of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine in the south of щur country, where I managed to see the captured #Russian military equipment. It turned out that there are components of European production!

What is happening with #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 & #Omicron subvariants in #Geneva #Switzerland at the moment? Data from our Centre @gcevd @Hopitaux_unige: BA.4/5 has reached already dominance at the time of writing this tweet… 1/n
We started re-testing end of April with only few detections of the BA.4/5 subvariant, but quickly saw weekly doubling of numbers since early May. Last week, we reached 50% & now BA.4/5 is most likely accounting for majority of infections in Geneva (data only @Hopitaux_unige) 2/n
What did we test? Since funding for genomic sequencing was much reduced recently, we re-test our positive samples with the Taqpath assay for S drop out, indicative of BA.4/5 (as this sub variant has again the deletion 69/70 in the spike). Advantage is: data in real-time 3/n

SCOTT RITTER: Phase Three in #Ukraine
No amount of western military aid has been able to prevent #Russia from achieving its military objective of liberating the entire territories of both #Lugansk and #Donetsk as Phase Three begins.
#Russia’s “Special Military Operation”, which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. Despite stiffer than expected #Ukrainian resistance (bolstered by billions of dollars of western military assistance and accurate, real-time battlefield intelligence by the U.S. and..
... other #NATO members) #Russia is winning the war on the ground, and in a big way.
After more than ninety days of incessant #Ukrainian propaganda, echoed mindlessly by a complicit western mainstream media that extolls the battlefield successes of the Ukrainian armed forces..

A student studying in #Switzerland writes: While studying in #Switzerland, I rented a house near the school. The landlady #Kristina was a 67-year-old single lady who had worked as a teacher in a secondary school before she retired.

Switzerland's pension is very good, enough not to worry about food and shelter in her later years. However, she actually found work to take care of an 87-year-old single man. I asked if she was working for money.

Her answer surprised me: I do not work for money, but I put my time in the #timebank, and when I cannot move in my old age, I can withdraw it.

The first time I heard about this concept of time bank, I was very curious and asked the landlady more.

In the early 20th century, an #Indian Raja could snap his fingers and turn the fate of a #Spanish flamenco dancer into an Indian queen... as did the besotted ruler of the princely state of Kapurthala in #Punjab. A modern retelling of a #Cinderella story set in Spain. 1/11
How exactly did Anita Delgado, a Spanish dancer trying to eke out a living to support her family, become Maharani Prem Kaur? It all began when Maharaja Jagatjit Singh was in #Madrid to attend the wedding of King Alfonso XIII of Spain in 1906. 2/11
Like any tourist, the Maharaja wanted a night on the town and he walked into a nightclub. Here, Anita Delgado and her sister, both flamenco #dancers, were performing the curtain-raiser act that night. Delgado was just 16 years old but Jagatjit Singh was smitten. 3/11

This particular graphic has been circulating & widely used for some months. It's misinformative & requires further clarity:

1⃣ The US is one of 194 signatories to the IHR (2005), its biggest update since 1969. These regs *do not* 'override & supercede' the US Constitution...
2⃣ The US ammendments to the IHR concern greater collaboration & commucation in the event of a future PHEIC & detail nothing about allowing the WHO to bypass sovereignty.

Other nations can object or make reservations to these ammendments set out within Article 59-64 of the IHR.
3⃣ No vote will take place in #Geneva #Switzerland at the 75th WHA on IHR ammendments nor sign any Treaty into international law.

The Assembly are set to 'consider' these ammendments. There has to be time for other WHO nations to respond & make reservations.

1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

Congratulations to #Ukraine's people and its Armed Forces. Today is the 50th day of resistance since #Russia launched #PutinsWar.

And overnight a few smiles from Ukrainians.

Read all Thursday's important news and analysis in the daily thread⬇️
First, still no confirmation, but chat in #Kherson was alive with speculation #Ukraine may have yet again hit Russian aircraft at the by now legendary airfield "#Chornobaivka"

This was apparently filmed by a resident "looking towards the airfield"
Next to the news, confirmed by #Russia, that their huge missile cruiser "Moskva" (Moscow) is badly damaged.

#Ukraine says it fired two of its 'Neptune' missiles which hit the ship, thought to have over 500 crew on board.
But Russia claims there was a fire which ignited missiles

Assessing the Combat in Ukraine: Learning from the Mistakes…
It is time to learn how @telegram works.
Be aware:

There is no "International order".

There is a "US order" and the west follows and is totally submitted to it. The US is not "the International". It represents 5% of the World's population but bullying the world.

No one can doubt the resolve of the Ukrainian people in the face of adversity. But their #military is no match for #Russia. So cutting them off from the SWIFT payments settlement system could force the Russians into stepping back. But will the #US and #EU take that step? 3/
