As the #Taliban continue to claim moving #TTP fighters to western #Afghanistan, TTP fighters have been confirmed in northern AFG, today the head of district intelligence of the Taliban’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GID) can under attack in #Badakhshah province.
For those unfamiliar with #Badakhshah provincial borders… Image
Another important factor to keep in mind is the #geological value of #Badakhshah province.

This is of key importance to #China’s investment into minerals in #Afghanistan. Image

In five years, #JoeBiden will likely get the #NobelPeacePrize. But not because he did anything proactively for peace.

It is because a #Multipolar World will be more peaceful than a unipolar one, and Biden has done more than anyone else (albeit unwittingly) to further that. (1/n)
The US-led #sanctions against #Russia in response to the #UkraineRussiaWar have forced countries around the world to abandon the US dollar as a medium of trade. This is forcing the rest of the world (non-West) together. Banning Russia from #swift was most important in this. (2/n)
#India and #China desperately need oil. Because of sanctions, Russia is providing oil at cheap rates to both. Russia has now become India's largest source of oil, displacing Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Chinese imports of Russian oil have also zoomed upwards. (3/n)

Today during the new phase of #UkraineRussiaWar, I'll talk about why Nordic, Eastern Europeans and Central Asians want #Russia to be disintegrated, and how pro-Russian supporters seek to undermine these narratives. Thread. 🧵 Image
The map of Russia is very big. Including the Kaliningrad exclave, Russia borders 13 countries on land and one country at the sea. However, Tsarist and Soviet conquests also led to Russia having some sort of influence beyond the border. Image
Being an inland empire, Russia expanded via land, a different compared to typical Western maritime empires. And Russia has, for a long time, treated its colonies in a brutal, repressive manner. ImageImageImageImage

Since Sept 26, leaks reported in both #NordStream1 trunklines & one #NordStream2 trunkline. Danish & Swedish officials said leaks resulted from explosions. NATO, EU & others fingered #Russia as likely culprit. Predictably, Moscow denied involvement. 1/4
Good reasons to suspect #Russia. Incapacitation of NS pipelines reminds Europe of Kremlin energy card and allows #Gazprom to claim force majeure to avoid penalties for non-delivery of gas. Pipeline attacks highlight European dependence on other underseas pipelines & cables. 2/4
Have seen this before. In 2009, #Gazprom had contract to buy pipeline gas from #Turkmenistan, but falling demand for gas made contract unprofitable. Then pipeline went boom, letting Gazprom claim force majeure to get out of contract. Turkmen said #Russia blew up pipeline. 3/4

reminder #Nordstream
1. January 2006 explosions in southern #Russia hit gas pipe & elect tower, halt energy supplies 2 Georgia.
2. April 2009 explosion at Central Asia Tsentr4 pipe suspends gas exports from #Turkmenistan 2 Russia.
What did Moscow say-->1/1
1. pro-Chechen insurgents are behind the explosions.
2. #Turkmenistan 's aging pipeline system needs repair & reconstruction.
Explosions coincidently but timely served #Russia 's interests-->1/2
1. Russia's economic coercion against Georgia; response to demands 2 evacuate Russian bases.
2. #Gazprom struggles to absorb all gas volumes contracted in Central Asia; the gas from the region is too expensive.

A woman was beaten by her husband for going to a beauty salon in #Turkmenistan
The brutal footage of the beating of a woman is being shared in the Turkmenistan. Bloggers write that the incident took place in a beauty salon. Allegedly, the husband found his wife in a barber shop. /2
The women in the salon initially tried to defend the victim, but in the end it all ended with screams and physical abuse.
In Turkmenistan, a law is in force that women cannot dye their hair, glue eyelashes, or give injections of "beauty". /3

I don't have any of the details of this situation in #Croatia yet (guessing it's more like she was arrested by Croatian police on an Interpol red notice??), but no country should ever extradite anyone to #Turkmenistan due to the risk of torture & disappearance in custody there.
If that is the situation, then hopefully the authorities in #Croatia will come to their senses soon. This kind of thing happens far too often: a brutal dictatorship abuses the Interpol system to try to get their hands on activists & perceived opponents abroad.
Oftentimes, it’s a low-level officer just reading things off a computer screen & detaining the person when the red notice pops up. Eventually, someone higher up sees the situation, realises it’s a dictatorship trying to abuse the international system, and releases the person.

"Carter Page provided an April 15, 2013, briefing document authored by Russian trade diplomat, Ksenia Yudaeva, on Russia’s priorities for a summit of the 20 richest countries in the world to be held in St. Petersburg in September 2013."…
"According to published reports, the FBI obtained a first FISA warrant to eavesdrop on Page’s electronic communications during 2013."

Link goes to the infamous April 11, 2017, Washington Post article authored by Nakashima, Barrett, and Entous.

But, bad as the Post can be, there's no mention of a 2013 FISA on Carter Page in here...…

My latest with @adalatseeker and @boshikh for @OCCRP: We tracked down the secretive relative of #Turkmenistan's longtime dictator who controls the country's monopoly mobile phone operator.
How secretive is Shyhmyrat Shaharliyev, the director of #Turkmenistan's monopoly mobile operator Altyn Asyr (TMCell)? He has never made a public appearance as director!

During most of the investigation, we only had an image of his torso (the man at the center) from social media.
Only later did we manage to identify him in 3 seconds of footage from #Turkmenistan state TV. Three seconds are his only public appearance!!!

Why so secretive? Likely because he doesn't want the public to realize he's related to longtime president Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov...

1.#Turkmenistan is undergoing a presidential succession. Despite the isolation imposed by geography and its political system, this country has played an important role in Eurasian energy politics. A recapping thread 👇…
2.Through the lenses of Turkmen energy history, one can trace 30 years of shifts in international politics including the USSR collapse, the US unipolar moment, the war on terror, Russia’s resurgence (well…) and China’s rise.
3. At the collapse of the USSR, newly independent Turkmenistan was a peripheral, impoverished state. Yet, an untapped treasure lied beneath its soil: 13.6 tcm of natural gas reserves (7% of global reserves), making Turkmenistan the fourth in the world.

Local sources in #Jawzjan told me that at 9:30 a.m. today, in the #Khamyab district, on the #AFG-#Turkmenistan border, the #Taliban started clash with Turkmen border guards.
At least, 4 Turkmen soldiers were reportedly #killed& two Turkmen border posts were set on fire by the TB.
A source told me that as a revenge for the previous killing of civilians by Turkmen guards, today initially the #Taliban targeted a #Turkmenistan border guards' vehicle patrolling in the area, burning the vehicle& killing those on board. Then both sides clashed with each other...
...The killing of Afghan civilians by Turkmenistan guards in the border area in previous days took place, when Afghans were collecting a precious plant (Shirin Boya) in the area.
Mullah Jura, a Turkmen from Jawzjan, is the #Taliban's commander for #AFG border forces in the area.

'Soykırıma uğrayan tek hayvan' ama neden?

Buzul çağından kalan mumyalaşmış cesetlerde safkan kalan tek at ırkı olarak biliniyor. Üç bin yıl önce insanlığın evcilleştirdiği ilk at türü. Manas Destanı ve Dede Korkut hikayelerinde bile adı geçiyor.
Müthiş bir görselliğe sahip olan Ahal Teke’ler, Türkmen atı olarak da biliniyor. Dünyada At Bakanlığının olduğu tek ülke #Türkmenistan’ın Ahal vilayetinde yaşıyor. Şu anda dünya üzerine 7 bin civarı Ahal Teke kaldığı söyleniyor.
‘Soykırıma uğrayan tek hayvan olarak’ ifade edilmesinin nedeni ise 2. Dünya Savaşı sırasında Türkmen direnişini kırmak için Stalin’in 80 bin Ahal Teke atını katletmesi.

#Afghanistan intrige: minerale rijkdom, pijptransport en klimaatbeleid.

TAPI gaspijplijn (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) in aanbouw, is slecht voor #Rusland en #Iran, maar goed voor de VS, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, China, ... maar politieke stabiliteit is nodig.
Deze TAPI pijplijn past binnen het klimaatbeleid van overschakeling naar gas. Het is een moderne zijderoute met investeerders en contractanten uit UK, Saoedi-Arabië, Duitsland, Argentinië, VS, Nederland, ...
Ook hoogspannings- en spoorlijn vanuit Turkmenistan naar Afghanistan.
#Taliban onderhandelde hierover met #Turkmenistan in februari 2021 onder auspiciën van de VS zonder de toenmalige Afghaanse regering hierbij te betrekken. Net zoals de akkoorden van Doha in 2020 tussen de VS en Taliban gesloten zijn zonder de officiële regering van Afghanistan.
