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

Some interesting reports coming out of #Afghanistan over the past few days:

- roughly 2,000 #Taliban suicide bombers have been moved to the #Iran|ian border since the end of May.
- #ISKP has also started moving their fighters to northern #Afghanistan, according to sources within an anti-#Taliban group. They are being moved to #Badakhshan, #Takhar and some others.

Apparently, there are both @CIA and #ISI fingerprints on this.
- #Taliban are moving its fighters closer to the #Tajikistan border. Fighters are also moving to the #Badakhshan province, bordering #Tajikistan.

- #TTP have become so emboldened to expand their operations around #Pakistan, including new waliyats in #Balochistan & #Punjab.

In what appears to be a coordinated effort, #Russian authorities recently began rounding up and mass detaining Tajiks across the country. Photo: @RadioiOzodi Image
According to our sources, these recently launched police raids and detentions seem to single out migrants from #Tajikistan, leaving the rest of the Central Asian migration community largely untouched.
With its criminal war in Ukraine, the brutal nature of the Russian regime should come as a surprise to exactly no one: This video, shared by Tajik sources, reportedly shows Russian law enforcement brutalizing Tajik migrants during the ongoing crackdown.

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)

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! New friends of #Russian President #Putin, the #Taliban, do not allow him to prepare the message to the Federal Assembly calmly. The Taliban liked the idea of official recognition by the Russian leadership so much that they...
made the #Russian president an offer that would be hard to refuse. If the Russian leadership offered official recognition of the #Taliban government in #Afghanistan mainly in exchange for the supply of weapons, the counter-proposal is incomparably more practical.
The #Taliban demand official recognition, and in return, they are ready to give up their attempts to seize parts of the territory of #Tajikistan for some time. And this is despite the gigantic sums previously paid by #Russia to the Taliban, in fact, for...

How ISLAMIZATION occurs when
there are sufficient MUSLIMS in a country.... #Thread

When culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable'
Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under
the table. Here's how it works...👇🏻👇🏻
📍 As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will
be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

(#UnitedStates --1.0%; #Australia --1.5%; #Canada --1.9%; #China --1%-2%; #Italy --1.5%;
#Norway --1.8%)
📍 At 2% and 3% Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

(#Denmark --2%;
#Germany --3.7%; #UnitedKingdom --2.7%; #Spain --4%; #Thailand --4.6%)

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Today, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin is due to participate in a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council (SEEC) in Bishkek. The visit to Bishkek will take place amid the collapsing CSTO.
The lack of desire to be in the CSTO is expressed not only by #Armenia and #Kazakhstan but also by #Kyrgyzstan. Bishkek has a grudge against the Russian leadership because of #Putin's unwillingness to pacify #Tajikistan within the framework of the CSTO.
According to the leadership of #Kyrgyzstan, #Tajikistan regularly provokes armed conflicts on the border of the two states. #Russia, thanks to #Putin, is losing traditional spheres of influence.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel!
Once again, our information has been confirmed. The #Taliban confirmed agreements on the supply of energy sources (gasoline, diesel fuel, liquefied gas) and food (grain) from #Russia for a total amount of about two billion dollars.
This is part of a five billion dollar deal between the #Russian leadership and the #Taliban leadership for the Taliban to refuse to seize the territories of #Tajikistan. #Putin is fulfilling the terms of the deal he assumed before the Taliban.
Although, with this approach to mobilization, he could change his mind and send a couple of million mobilized to fight the #Taliban in #Tajikistan. Recall that the Taliban in #Russia is considered a terrorist organization.

Let's talk #Russian #nuclear strategy and why that's relevant to recent developments in Russia's war in #Ukraine.
First, Ukraine has made major territorial gains, especially around Kharkiv. This has put a lot of pressure on Putin. 1/23
This has hit his international standing and was on display at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in Uzbekistan. Putin was publicly put down by Modi and Xi, and today Erdogan also chided him - they all had the same message: the war must end. 2/
On top of that, other Central Asian nations didn't treat Putin with the respect that he would normally expect. Not to mention the added instability along Russia's borders with fighting btw #Armenia - #Azerbaijan, and #Tajikistan - #Kyrgyzstan. 3/

A rally for #Armenia's withdrawal from the #CSTO is taking place on France Square in #Yerevan.
Protesters in Yerevan stand with American flags and posters calling for withdrawal from the CSTO

Nancy Pelosi said that Russia failed to fulfill its allied obligations to protect Armenia and offered US assistance. To accept it or not it is the choice of the Armenian authorities.
Armenia has received a historic chance to get out of the sphere of #Russian influence and choose the right path. Meanwhile, the #CSTO has once again confirmed its status as a useless, worthless organization created to suppress uprisings in post-Soviet dictatorships.

Kaum wurde der Konflikt zwischen Armenien und Aserbaidschan eingedämmt, eskaliert ein weiterer Krisenherd im postsowjetischen Raum.
Seit Donnerstag werden schwere Kämpfe zwischen #Kirghizistan und #Tadschikistan gemeldet.
Panzer, Drohnen und Artillerie im Einsatz.
Die ersten Scharmützel zwischen den Grenztruppen von #Kirgisien und #Tadschikistan brachen bereits am Mittwoch aus, trugen jedoch zunächst eher lokalen Charakter.
Die Gefechte weiteten sich allerdings schnell aus...sowohl räumlich als auch was den Einsatz von Waffen angeht
Beide Seiten verlegten schwere Waffen an die Trennlinie.
Auf den vorhandenen Videos ist die Verlegung von Kampfhubschraubern, Truppentransportern und Kampfpanzern zu sehen.
Hier zwei Screenshots. Alle Videos findet ihr wie gehabt bei mir auf Telegram.

Hello and welcome to Friday, which is Day 205 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Here's the daily thread, with all the news that matters.
If you want to flick through yesterday's stories, be my guest:

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine
Generally a quiet night in #Ukraine. The usual shelling from #Russia|ns in the likes of #Nikopol and #Sumy, but even in the latter fewer than 60 grads fired in the region in the last 24 hours, which although it sounds horrendous, is well down on usual daily figures.

There were four slight injuries in #Kharkiv when rockets landed early this morning.

Two adults and minors aged 5 and 17 suffered slight shrapnel wounds in the Slobidskyi district of the city.
There's reported to be a car burning.
