Recently news saying #Beijing is now allowing goods from the NE province of #Jilin can be shipped to another Chinese port via #Haishenwai, or #Vladivostok, without paying import duty has generated some buzz on social media.…
The excitement is mostly due to historical reasons and the prospect that the move may boost Jilin's economy. This thread will explain what the news actually means and its context. /2
The “Cross-border transportation of domestic trade goods” policy refers to shipping goods from one 🇨🇳 location to another via a designated foreign port. It began in '07 to enhance the connectivity of the landlocked NE region, especially the provinces of #Heilongjiang & Jilin. /3

Welcome along to Friday's thread covering the war in #Ukraine.

#Russia's illegal invasion continues as do these daily threads. Today is Day 380.
If you're able to support what I do, please buy me a coffee (see bio)💙💛

Here's the link for yesterday's 🧵

A lot of fears about the nuclear power plant in #Enerhodar.

An excellent article here (in Ukr but translates well with Google) about the problems experienced by workers at the #Zaporizhzhia plant from the first day of the invasion.…
The former General Director of aviation giant Antonov has been arrested by authorities in #Ukraine.

Serhiy Bychkov will be detained for 2 months while investigations continue into several senior Antonov employees obstructing the Armed Forces which tried to save Hostomel airfield

It's Wednesday, 22 February, and day 364 of the war in Europe.

Here's another daily thread documenting the developments as #Ukraine fights for its very survival as #Russia continues its illegal pursuit of colonialism.

All the news in one handy thread, updated real time, all day
Quite a bit to catch up on yesterday if you didn't stay up...

It loooked like a big counter attack with long range rockets by #Ukraine on targets in the occupied territories.

See what you missed by scrolling through yesterday's thread here:
By the way, no official (or even unofficial) news yet on damage caused to Russia and its troops in the attacks yesterday evening. Even in #Mariupol where 11 missiles were thought to be fired on the southern port.

Saturday, and here's the daily thread for Day 297 of the #RussiaUkraineWar. All the news in one place

Another painful morning for Ukrainians Friday, but the rest of the day passed off quite peacefully; spirits remain high

Catch up on what you missed here
So let's start today with news of explosions inside #Russia and on #Crimea

First Crimea - they may try to pass off loud bangs in #Simferopol & #Bakhchisarai as "air defence working". But it seems more than that, one report of several military trucks and fuel trucks were damaged.
Speaking of loud bangs, this was heard in #Belgorod region in #Russia.

Maybe the Russians are fearful of a breakaway Republic? The last one to try that was #Chechnya and its capital got razed to the ground.

Friday's daily thread covering #Russia's war on #Ukraine starts here

In the #UK, 4 November is/was "Mischief Night" (is that still a thing?); sadly every day's a nightmare for Ukrainians

It's Day 254
Coming up: pleas for help from people in Mariupol and a new #Bucha documentary
Firstly, thanks to Tony for buying me a coffee (and a bacon sandwich too!)
If you think I deserve a coffee, see my bio.

If you missed anything yesterday, here's the link:

It's 3am in #Mariupol where temps will dip to +2
While many other areas of #Ukraine don't have power, many residents in occupied Mariupol don't even have windows. Civilians still forced to live in ruined tower blocks, hang banners "Children freezing" & "Where are the windows"

It's Monday and I hope it's the start of a good week for you.

This is the daily thread number 215 with all the news from #Russia's war on #Ukraine

Now anyone who gives over £200 will receive a personal message of thanks from🇺🇦 soldiers on the frontline.…
Just to clarify, if you have already made a pledge, you are still eligible. So if you gave £100, we need £101 more, or if you donated £200, just an extra £1 will do it, but feel free to give more if you can afford it.

Help #Ukraine defend itself and defend democracy!
If you missed anything on Sunday, here's the start of yesterday's thread.

I was on the road most of yesterday and posted a lot in the evening.

A random thread about #mobilization around #Russia.
Murmansk oblast plans to draft around 1000 people, out of roughly 800.000 population.

People in Moscow called up without any military experience.
Material moves from East to West the same as people do. Here in #Krasnoyarsk

The announcement by #Russian Defence Ministry on Tuesday on Vostok-22 strategic command post exercises during August 30-September 5 gives a big message to the West in political and military terms.

The announcement said, “In addition to the troops (forces) of the Eastern Military District, units of the Airborne Troops, Long Range Aviation and Military Transport Aviation, as well as military contingents from other states, will be involved in these manoeuvres.”

If there is going to be participation by #China, it will be highly significant in the present context of global politics, especially in the Far East.

You're in the right place for all the news that matters, both the battlefield and the politics, as #Russia continues to attack #Ukraine

It's Daily🧵#142 of #PutinsWar

If you want to buy me a coffee, the link's in my profile. Thanks to all who have, I'll write personally ASAP.
Overnight #Russia complained of "an attack" by drones inside its borders. Obviously it blamed #Ukraine + published these photos.

Why Ukraine would choose to fire something tiny at a library in a non-descript town in #Belgorod they couldn't explain!

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Russia closing in on #Siversk in eastern #Ukraine's #Donbas region according to UK Intel.
However the daily update from London highlights more failings of Putin's war machine.

I just got on the @rzd_official No. 2 train from #moscow to #vladivostok. This #transsiberian route is over 9200km, the longest single train ride in the world. It will take 6 days and change in one direction. THREAD (I’ll add throughout the journey): Image
Tonight we will stop in Vladimir in the night and be in Nizhny Novgorod on the Volga before sunrise. My coupe while not fancy is certainly comfortable. We are passing through the Moscow suburbs. It’s midnight. That’s a full commuter train we just whizzed by. Image
This is my coupe. There is a mini TV (peak Russia) and a plug to charge phones in the hallway. Haven’t dared ask the shower question yet as not all trains have them. The lady in charge of our “wagon” is very nice and will go all the way to Vladivostok (and back!). Shared WCs. Image

The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj

Yet again, msm is wasting time with a standard framework to analyze a #PutinPuppet development. So, #WhatWouldPutinDo? Well, if you saw the @RichardEngel special last Friday, then you know that Putin gave Kim the ICBMs he's been testing; well, Kim's fresh out...
1/, time to do something else, particularly because it's Putin's threat of #sanctions that matters. See, there's a fleet of freighters regularly sailing from #Vladivostok to nowhere specific - just out to sea... Where they turn off their transponder... Which is what the...
...Kim regime has been surviving on. So, why would Kim suddenly offer a weapons freeze for talks? Because Putin wants his puppet to survive the midterms (remember: flip Congress = impeachment). To get him votes, what could be better than the #KabukiTheatre of DT *saving*...
