#Putin Asks #Erdogan For Help

Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir Putin had several telephone conversations, including with #Turkish President Recep Erdogan. During his conversation with Erdogan, Putin lamented the West's misunderstanding of his (Putin's) position.

#Erdogan has won the elections in #Turkey.

#Indian #liberals are dismayed because Erdogan is trying to #Islamize Turkey.

But this is a decision of the people of Turkey.

Erdogan has won through a democratic, free and fair election.

This is what the people of Turkey want.

If you claim to love #Democracy, that is, the will of the people, then you should be happy with this result.

Erdogan is a #Democrat. He is not #Liberal. He converted the #HagiaSophia into a mosque.

But #Democracy has NOTHING TO DO with #Liberalism, and vice versa.

#Ataturk was a #Liberal in every sense of the word. He abolished the #Caliphate, closed down #Madarsa s, changed the language of the country from #Arabic to #Turkish, banned the #Fez cap, banned the #Sufi and #Dervish orders, and promoted scientific thinking.

One of the primary reasons #Azerbaijan emerged victorious during its conflict with #Armenia in 2020 was that the Turkish #Bayraktar drones completely dominated the technologically inferior Armenian defense forces.

1/n Image
The conflict portrayed the success and effectiveness of the #Turkish drone program and its combat capabilities.

Türkiye has been able to challenge industry behemoths like the #US and #Israel to capture market share in #drone exports.

Even in the #RussiaUkraine conflict, they were able to inflict considerable damage on #Russian forces.

They have striking precision capabilities and come with relatively lesser price tags compared to their US and Israeli alternatives.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin had two telephone conversations with two leaders of conditionally "friendly" countries. Both yesterday's interlocutors of the Russian president are tall and were born in the same year.
#Putin spoke twice last week with both, but the reasons were different. On Sunday, the #Russian president congratulated #Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdogan on his birthday and had a short conversation, checking his mood and promising to be a reliable partner.
With Alexander #Lukashenko, #Putin discussed yesterday's incident at the Machulishchi military airfield near Minsk, as a result of which one of the #Russian military aircraft was damaged. Lukashenko tried to find out the reaction and plans of the Russian president.

Last yr #UkraineWar became the organizing principle of Russian foreign policy

➡️7 trends
1 Full turn to non-West
2 China’s junior partner
3 Less leverage vis middle powers
4 Struggle in the neighbourhood
5 Russia MFA sidelined
6 Wagner normalized
7 End of compartmentalization
1. Full turn to the non-West:
Judging its break with the West to be total & irreversible, Russia's leadership has intensified its (pre-existing) turn to #MENA, #Africa, #LATAM, #Asia-Pacific.

Shunned & sanctioned, Russia needs to make up for losses wherever it can... (2/22)
This year, Lavrov already visited 8 African states, Iraq, & hosted Pakistani & Egyptian FMs.

#Ukraine/#Russia 🇺🇦🇷🇺:

The 🇳🇱#Netherlands and the 🇨🇿#Czechia are currently preparing two other projects in the field of air defence and artillery for 🇺🇦#Ukraine.

Thread🧶 1/x

@oryxspioenkop @Rebel44CZ @secretsqrl123 @ukraine_map @OSINTua @UAWeapons @LivFaustDieJung
I think the projects will go in the same direction as the current rebuild of 90 T-72 tanks or the production of 115 MR-2 systems. That is, the production and coordination of the projects will be done in 🇨🇿#Czechia, while the 🇳🇱#Netherlands will largely finance the projects.

Now let's see what anti-aircraft systems the 🇨🇿#Czech Republic can offer:

1) Production of additional MR-2 systems.

The MR-2 is a very short-range anti-aircraft system designed primarily to shoot down 🇮🇷#Iranian Shahed-136 (Geran-2) drones.

There was uproar in #France when the city of #Strasbourg agreed to pay €2.5m towards the construction of a new #mosque by a radical #Turkish #Islamist organization in 2021. But who is #MilliGorus and what are their aims? A thread by #theHELC 1/10
Millî Görüş ("National Vision") is a religious-political movement that found expression in a series of #Islamist parties culminating in #Erdogan’s AKP. It argues that Turkey can develop as a rival to the West, by protecting its core values and trusting in God 2/10
The beginning of the movement dates to a manifesto published in 1969 by Necmettin #Erbakan, the Islamist politician who later became prime minister. Erbakan called for #PanIslamism and warned against the ‘#Zionist and Catholic project’ of the European Common market 3/10

#Sweden told #Turkey that it cannot fulfil its extradition requests as a quid pro quo for Turkish agreement to Swedish #Nato membership, but arms exports might create some political room for manoeuvre. #thread
#UlfKristersson, Sweden’s prime minister, said that the country will do what it needs to in order to fulfil the tripartite agreement with #Turkey signed last summer. #Sweden is neither able nor willing to fulfil conditions that go beyond the scope of the deal. 1/2
#Turkey has requested the extradition of people living in Sweden. The decision is a matter for the Swedish courts. Other concessions from Ankara are arms deliveries. There is no formal ban on arms exports to Turkey, but in practice there is. 1/3
