1/UK Military doctrine emphasises the cognitive dimension of warfare. Avoiding attrition, the enemy's mind is the target. The contrast with current discussions of the #counteroffensive is marked. Like the FWW, it is all about re-taking terrain and settlements liberated.
2/ Are the #Ukrainians hopelessly old fashioned? No: nothing has a greater morale and intellectual effect than losing troops and ground - especially when it is vital terrain.
3/ However, critical though the current close battles are, the outcome of this #counteroffensive is probably going to be decided in the deep, where the #UAF have been striking hard and skilfully.

#Putin's Thoughts on #Belgorod

several settlements are under constant shelling. It should be recalled that earlier, #Putin spoke about similar problems in the #Belgorod Region, saying that mainly #Ukrainians live there, so let them "kill" each other, it is not a problem.

Ukronazism & similar constructs are, in view of the political marginality of Ukrainian fascism today, not antifascist terms. Such labels are often accompanied by bloating of minor phenomena, or even falsified stories or pictures, as those below. /1…
Terms like "#Ukronazism" are designed to dehumanize self-identifying #Ukrainians & to justify their #genocide by an imperialist, far-right & anti-egalitarian regime./2

Not only US and other ultra-conservative circles, but paradoxically also much of the world-wide #radicalleft indirectly supports this Russian ultra-nationalist project today.

#Ukraine Banning Pro-russian TV Stations and Political Parties - #Disinformation #Overview Image

“This is a recurring #disinformation narrative by pro-#Kremlin media about the West’s purported attempts to interfere in #Ukrainian politics and set the #political establishment there against #Russia.
In reality, neither pro-#Kremlin parties nor #politicians nor #media are #persecuted in #Ukraine as long as they obey the #law.

NEW: F-16s to #Ukraine "will take several months at best" @SecAFOfficial Frank Kendall tells reporters at @GWUPMNS

"A lot of details are gonna have to be sorted out to get us between here & there"
"It will give the #Ukrainians an interim capability they don't have right now, but it's not going to be a dramatic game changer" per @SecAFOfficial Kendall
"Airpower has not been a decisive factor so far" in #Russia-#Ukraine, per @SecAFOfficial Kendall

"The F-16s are going to help the Ukrainians but it's not going to fundamentally change that equation"

1. As #Russian commanders expend more forces to take the last #Ukrainian-held area of western #Bakhmut city, the #Ukrainians may be quietly disengaging from the city and instead focusing on a strategy to turn Russian-held Bakhmut into a massive kill zone.
2. The propaganda value to Russian leadership of being able to finally announce taking Bakhmut after over a year of massive casualties may be short-lived if the Ukrainian strategy works. Rather than waste more soldiers and material in beating back the waves
3. of Wagner attackers, Ukraine appears to have chosen to seek the envelopment the Russian position in Bakhmut while the Russians are laser-focused solely on advancing towards what may be a pyrrhic victory of occupying a totally-destroyed Bakhmut city.

Eva Karene Bartlett:

Overall excellent summary by Colonel Douglas #Macgregor of 🇺🇸#US/West's anti-Russia propaganda & instigation of Ukraine coup, US/#NATO moving east to 🇷🇺#Russia's borders, 🇺🇦#Ukraine &
its backers' ignoring of #Minsk agreements & pushing Russia to defend itself & its people.

"Russia is by no means the evil aggressor in this thing. If anything, Russia launched an operation that it felt it had to to secure its country.
We have been working tirelessly for at least the last 20 years to undermine & weaken 🇷🇺#Russia in whatever way possible.

...In 2014, you had this coup that we helped to organize & implement, which put people in power that would otherwise never have gotten there.

#Ukraine #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk? Falsehood” Image
‘It was not #Ukraine that #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk

Sometimes anti-#Ukrainian #propaganda uses falsehoods – e.g. #fabricated documents or photos, through which it gives a completely new, #untrue context – or simply untruth.
This is the case here. In the post we read that the current Ukrainian authorities "#murdered the #people of #Donbass and #Luhansk due to their #ethnic origin."

#Prigozhin also denied the #Kremlin’s claims that #Russia is fighting #NATO in #Ukraine and questioned whether there are actually Nazis in Ukraine as the Kremlin constantly claims.
2/ #Prigozhin stated that #Russia is fighting “exclusively with #Ukrainians” who are equipped with #NATO-provided equipment and some “russophobic” mercenaries who voluntarily support #Ukraine - but not NATO itself.
3/ #Prigozhin also noted that #Russian officials most likely knew that #NATO would offer #Ukraine military aid, because “it is ridiculous to think that when [#Russia] decided to conduct this special military operation it did not account for NATO’s help to Ukraine.”

My take for @AtlanticCouncil: Any #Russians committing crimes in #Ukraine should consider themselves formally on notice.

"The ICC’s arrest warrant for #Putin is a seismic moment for international law & judicial accountability."
Putin is now on a very short, infamous list. 🧵
As I explain, "the ICC’s historic announcement indicates an increased scope," not just prosecuting #Putin for crime of aggression in special tribunals, but "reasonable grounds that Putin himself bears individual criminal responsibility" for war crimes. 2/

Warrant for Putin = accountability & legal courage. AND:
"The arrest warrant for Lvova-Belova, #Russia’s so-named commissioner for children’s rights, is no less significant." The ICC signals that lower level officials also bear criminal responsibility. 3/

Capt. Malakhov, commander of special-forces battalion in Lyman said that rather than sticking to Soviet playbook that led RU troops to series of defeats early on in war, they are now finding weakest point of #Ukrainians & focus there, probing enemy lines.…
2. He stated that #Russia's shelling appears to be growing more accurate, something he believes could be a result of captured Ukrainian artillery officers being forced to show Russians how to use specially designed targeting apps.
3. Can't help but wonder have #NATO/allies shared too much over the past year? Too much information about their ambitions, too much about what equipment they are sending, their battle tactics and what they believe UKR troops should be doing that Russia noticed and applies this

A 🧵 Twitter toxicity is something else. Let’s be clear - you do not have to admire or even like #Zelenskyy to support #Ukraine or be #Ukrainian. That’s a ridiculous and illogical claim to make against @tweet4anna. However this litmus test of Ukrainian-ness is also ridiculous
Identity is complicated. I personally know many #Ukrainians who do not speak Ukrainian for a variety of life circumstances. My mother was born in western #Ukraine️ at the #slovak border. While she is a Ukrainian citizen, we dis not speak Ukrainian at home but
rather Slovak, rusyn or Polish as she belongs to an ethnic minority (#lemko) with complicated identity issues. There are different factors that contribute to ethnicity. Another thing though is

#Russians claim that #Ukrainian culture doesn't exist. In fact, they tried to do their best to erase it. Well-planned soviet campaign on the annihilation of the cream of the Ukrainian nation was aimed at the destruction of Ukrainian culture. #UW_InfoWatch #AgainstRussianLies 1/4
The aim was to root out everything #Ukrainian, everything great and prominent about #Ukrainians.

One of the numerous examples is the tragedy of Sandarmokh. In times of Stalin's purges in 1937 the brightest representative of #Ukrainian culture and science were executed. 2/4
Among them, Les Kurbas - theatre director, and the founder of new approaches to world theatre art; Mykola Kulish - playwright whose plays were on stages in Paris, New York, and Warsaw, Valeriian Pidmohylny - writer, translator, philosopher and many others. 3/4

#Ukrainian men of draft age (18-55) who want to leave through Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia to #Russia, as well as from Poland to #Belarus, are forcibly returned to #Ukraine at the request of Kiev, where they will be mobilized into the Ukrainian army.
The Baltic and Polish authorities are also detaining #Ukrainians trying to enter the #EU at the border crossing points with #Russia and #Belarus.
At the beginning of 2023, the Ukrainian Cabinet approved new rules for military registration of those liable for military service, conscripts and reservists - diplomatic missions should "facilitate the return of those liable for military service and reservists to #Ukraine."

Director #WangYi's remarks on #UkraineCrisis at #MunichSecurityConference2023:
#China is not a party to the #UkraineCrisis, but we have not sat idly by or added fuel to the fire, and we firmly oppose any move to exploit the crisis.
the framework for a peace deal had been put on the table. But regrettably the peace talk stopped. Some people don't want fighting to stop. They don’t care about the life and death of #Ukrainians or the harm done to Europe, but have larger strategic calculations in mind.
Confrontation between major powers must be avoided.We hope European friends will give sober thought to these questions: what are needed to stop the war? What is needed for peace and stability to endure in Europe? What role does Europe play to realize its strategic autonomy?
