I find the collective, deliberate amnesia, as well as the refusal to acknowledge the many nuances & complexities, that both birthed & raised this tragic #UkraineRussia war, quite simply - absurd.
In this video from April 2014, acting #Ukrainian president Turchynov announces the #ATO against his own citizens in Eastern Ukraine prior to the Geneva Summit.
Consider this for a moment, why was it a Revolution of Dignity in the #Maidan yet a Terrorist Uprising in #Donbass?
No one was held accountable. I wonder why. Also do you remember how they arrested a Berkut officer and accused him of being the sniper by showing a picture of him holding a rifle with two hands but the dude hasn’t had two hands for a minute (like 6 years before Maidan). Literally removed his glove and showed the stump.
@bartosz75332995 @autistic_norman @YaPryvyd007 Using Girkin as a singular source doesn’t build a convincing argument.

#War #Military #UkraineWar #Russia #Ukraine #UkraineRussia #RussianInvasion #UkraineRussianWar #RussianUkrainianWar

Russian forces are currently stepping up their Avdiivka Offensive, where OSINT reports bigger and heavier bombs being used on the city targets.
Russian forces are also attacking across the entire front, from Pervomaiske all the way to Avdiivka itself on the western flank, and from Kamyanka all the way to Novokalynove on the northern flank.

[ Battle of Bakhmut ] Ukraine to STAY & FIGHT for Bakhmut; Zelenskyy throwing Generals under the bus

#War #Military #UkraineWar #Russia #Ukraine #UkraineRussia #RussianInvasion #UkraineRussianWar #RussianUkrainianWar

In a curious turn of event, Zelenskyy puts out a very public video, claiming that he accepted his generals' decision to stay and fight for Bakhmut; instead of the tactical/organised withdrawal that is reportedly underway.
This could either be Zelenskyy throwing the generals under the bus; or perhaps the generals indeed is responding to the Wagner PMC's ammunition woes; to ride on the effectivenss of the counteroffensives thus far, to retake the surrounding regions of Bakhmut.

"Years in the planning, the campaign is responsible for many of the unexplained explosions and other mishaps that have befallen the Russian military industrial complex since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February, according to three former U.S. intelligence officials
"The former officials declined to identify specific targets for the CIA-directed campaign, but railway bridges, fuel depots and power plants in Russia have all been damaged in unexplained incidents since the Kremlin launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February."

We had a fascinating discussion in the comments, and it turned out that the two languages conversation is common in other countries too.

Exactly. Unfortunately, we have to say that it partly worked. Russia has assimilated millions of people. /1
For example, let's talk about the Kuban region in south Russia. It used to be populated by the Ukrainian population. In this video from 1992 (NOT 1956), people call themselves Ukrainians and talk in beautiful Ukrainian. /2
Ukrainians also populated the far east due to immigration. They even proclaimed the republic Green Ukraine in 1918. I recommend reading the Ukrainian novel "Tiger Trappers" about the life of Ukrainians there. It is one of the best books I've read.… /3

Russian and Ukrainian languages. Thread
As a Ukrainian, one of the most often questions people asked me before the war was about the language. Is Russian and Ukrainian the same? How do you know Russian? Are they similar? Image
Before answering these questions, first, let's look at the historical background.
The Russian language arrived in Ukraine only in the middle of the 17th century (Pereiaslav Agreement). Before that, no one spoke Russian there. /1
At that time, Russian-speaking soldiers and merchants from the Moscow tsarist empire were settled in Ukraine for the first time. /2

As I predicted: "The progress was notable, but the introduction of superior Western systems has not brought radical changes in Russian superiority. Russian artillery is still extremely overwhelming and deadly." #Ukraine #UkraineWar #Russia #UkraineRussia…
"Russia's numerical superiority, and its endless munitions stock ... have had a devastating effect on the course of the war... The disproportion between the number of Russian and Ukrainian pieces deployed to a particular front line area can go as far as 10 to 1." #Ukraine #Russia

In an article denouncing on-going Russian investigations into Ukrainian captives for "crimes against peace," @NYTimes correspondent @MarcSantoraNYT offers a full-throated tribute to the fascist Azov Battalion. He writes: 1/ #UkraineRussia #Nazi
"Those being investigated include members of the Azov regiment, who are widely regarded as heroes in Ukraine for holding out for weeks underneath a Mariupol steel plant as Russian forces bombarded the city at the end of one of the bloodiest battles of the war." 2/
Though acknowledging that the Azov Battalion "started out as a far-right militia" which "is now part of the Ukrainian National Guard," Santora, contradicting himself, denounces Russia's "unfounded claims about the influence of Nazism in the country." 3/

1. While our national debt stands at more than thirty trillion dollars, our country goes under, and Joe Biden maintains crooked investments, our government will now give $1,700,000,000.00 to the Ukraine.…

Det kan virke som om norske myndigheter fortsatt befinner seg i en fordums tid med utdaterte utenrikspolitiske hensyn som tas overfor Russland.
Det må endres. Russland må stoppes. De fortjener ikke vår respekt.

Norge har siden krigen startet misbrukt nær sagt alle muligheter til å si tydelig fra at vi kommer til å bruke våre muskler til å sørge for at Ukraina vinner og Russland taper. /2
I stedet har vi tatt alle anledninger som har kommet til å hinte til Russland at vi «forstår» dem og vært forsiktige slik at vi ikke «sårer». Sist, absurd nok, ville vi ikke hjelpe sårede ukrainske soldater av den grunn. /3

Fransız ve İtalyan enerji devleri ENGIE ve ENI Rusya'dan aldıkları gazı ruble ile ödemeyi kabul ettiler. ENGIE'nin %33'ü Fransız devletine, ENI'nin %30'u İtalyan devletine ait. Yani özel(!) şirketler vasıtasıyla Avrupa kendi koyduğu ambargoyu deliyor.
Oysa Avrupa Komisyonu'na göre Rus para biriminde hesap açmak yaptırımların ihlalidir ve Brüksel tarafından cezai işlemlere yol açar. Yani Avrupalılar Putin'i soykırım dahil her türlü insanlık suçu ile itham ederken Rusya'dan gaz almak için GazpromBank'ta ruble hesabı açıyorlar.
