#Armenian PM Nikol #Pashinyan's remarks concerning the prospects for Armenia's negotiations with #Azerbaijan and possible withdrawal from the CSTO. #Putin expressed concern over #Lukashenko's forthcoming visit, which is to take place at his (Lukashenko's) initiative.

The discussion on this issue took about ten minutes and resulted in the conclusion that #Lukashenko is playing ahead and will be asking for money again while showing that he is alive and well and ready to retain power in the Republic of #Belarus for a long time.

If you live in Washington DC you may have heard about Sharbat Cafe, a sensational Azerbaijani bakery that opened during the pandemic. It's owner, Ilhama Safarova, is struggling with stage 4 gastric cancer and needs support.…
For me this is intensely personal, because although I met her just 4 years ago and I've never been to #Azerbaijan, Ilhama is family to me.
In fact, if I've visited you at all in the last 3 years there's a good chance I brought you one of Ilhama's honey cakes, or a "medovik," as my pal @juliaioffe informed me they're called in Russian.

Just watched the #CNNTownhall with 2024 Presidential candidate and former President @realDonaldTrump , as well as the post-townhall panel discussion.

One thing is clear: #America is a broken country. It's split right down the middle.

Racial divisions and #massshootings are peaking, the economy is cratering, #poverty and #homelessness are rising.

And meanwhile, the US government is involved in, or threatening to get involved in, wars from #Ukraine to #Taiwan to #Syria to #Iran to #NorthKorea.

When they should be working on healing the divisions in their own nation. White vs non-White, Rural vs Urban, Rich vs Poor, drug addiction, broken homes - all these are tearing America apart.

“Free and Fair Elections

#Ukraine's president is directly elected by the people, while the country's lawmakers are elected in both single-seat constituencies and through proportional representation.
The legislature chooses the prime minister by majority vote, and the president appoints members of the supreme court after they have been nominated by the Supreme Council of Justice.

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.

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)

🧵 Aznur 🇦🇿🇦🇺🇧🇾🇩🇪🇷🇺

This is a story of stolen taxpayer money, a Brazilian restaurant in #Berlin, corrupted parliamentarians from #Australia, heavy military trucks used to invade #Ukraine, the crackdown of the protests in #Belarus and several key figures of the #Azerbaijan regime ImageImageImageImage
Years ago, @OCCRP published raw data of the so-called #Azerbaijan laundromat, a massive money laundering scheme that was used to send stolen taxpayer money abroad.

What puzzled me where these payments. Apparently, the Azerbaijan state opened the company "Aznur GmbH" Image
Indeed, such a company does exist. And even more than that - it is art of a network of companies. One of the companies in the network is "Brasil Gastro GmbH", a company that runs the restaurant "Brasil Brasileiro" on Ku'damm, Berlin's most prestigious street. ImageImage

1/12 #Azerbaijan's TOP 15 false narratives. Exploiting these lies, #Baku disrupts the negotiation process with #Armenia, prepares for new attacks against Armenia, #NagornoKarabakh.

1. Armenia supplies weapons to Karabakh through the Lachin Corridor with the help of peacekeepers.
2/ #Azerbaijan's false narratives.

2. Armenia does not agree to establish peace with Azerbaijan, although Azerbaijan's proposals are the best, based on the principles of international law.

3. Armenia, together with Russia and Iran, is preparing to attack Azerbaijan.
3/ #Azerbaijan's false narratives.

4. There are illegal military groups in Nagorno-Karabakh that are planning to attack, and it is necessary to disarm the NK Defense Army with an anti-terrorist operation.

1/15 The rules of the new world order are emphasized. The West divides countries into democratic-dictatorial.

Democracies must be protected, this is the main ideology. What does the future hold?

#Armenia #USA #EU #Russia #Azerbaijan #Ukraine #democracy #War #Putin #Biden #US
2/ There is #NATO, which is a military structure, but there are also non-NATO democratic countries that are at risk. And the #West protects them with military and diplomatic power. #Russia promotes the interests of dictatorial regimes through the war against #Ukraine.
3/ If #Putin wins, not a multipolar world order will be established, but chaos will begin. The victory of Russia will mean that there is only the right of force in the world, and small states will face the danger of colonization. Putin says that states are sovereign or colonies.

Sanno di déjà-vu le immagini che in queste ore arrivano dal confine tra #Azerbaijan e #Armenia. L'esercito di #Baku sta ammassando sempre più truppe: la tenuta complessiva del già fragilissimo cessate il fuoco siglato (con qualche interruzione) nell'autunno del 2020
fra le due ex repubbliche sovietiche non è mai stata così in bilico.
Da ormai settimane i civili armeni si addestrano in palestre improvvisate all'utilizzo di armi e tecniche di guerra. Promettono di combattere fino all'ultimo connazionale, invocano un intervento in loro
difesa, descrivono come certo un attacco azero in questa primavera. Tenendosi larghi.
C'è una regola, in geopolitica, che rischia di sancire la condanna per l'Armenia: i vuoti sono fatti per essere riempiti. La guerra in #Ucraina ha "distratto" la #Russia dalla protezione

1/11 Russia's FM #Lavrov is leaving for #Turkey in a week. Attention! In #Ankara, Lavrov will also discuss the settlement of #NagornoKarabakh with Turkish FM Cavusoglu, in addition to the topics of #Syria, #Ukraine. Zakharova announced this information today. What does it reveal? Image
2/ 🇷🇺 no longer hides that Karabakh is the subject of its and 🇹🇷's political trade. 🇷🇺 can concede one benefit to 🇹🇷 in the Karabakh issue, and instead receive a benefit in the directions of Syria, Ukraine. The settlement of the NK issue actually fell victim to 🇷🇺-🇹🇷 cooperation. Image
3/ The facts testify to that. After the Sept 2020 war, the #Russia's MoD #Shoigu announced that a successful operation was carried out with #Turkey in #Karabakh. Probably, he meant the defeat of Nagorno Karabakh. A joint Russian-Turkish monitoring center is located in #Aghdam. ImageImage

1/ Today #Azerbaijan's armed forces closed the Goris-Stepanakert highway between Aghavno and Tegh villages. The government of #NagornoKarabakh reports that the new Tegh-Kornidzor dirt highway of Syunik marz is ready. It bypasses the closed road.

2/ This road connects to the new Kornidzor-Hin shen road (Lachin Corridor) commissioned in Aug 2022. Asphalting works of the Tegh-Kornidzor road are in progress by Armenia. Tegh-Kornidzor dirt road is passable.
3/ With this, it is possible to carry out humanitarian supplies to Karabakh by Russian peacekeepers and the International Committee of the #RedCross. Russian peacekeepers control that road on the border of Nagorno-Karabakh, near the Hakar river bridge.

1/10 This is shamelessness on the part of #Putin's criminal regime. The #Kremlin openly threatens #Armenia not to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. An information source of the Russian FM told the #Russian state media TASS․

#Russia #Lavrov #Yerevan
2/10 TASS source: "#Moscow considers absolutely unacceptable the plans of official #Yerevan to join the #RomeStatute of the International Criminal Court against the background of the latest illegal orders of the #ICC against the Russian leadership."
3/10 Lavrov's employee also told TASS that the Armenian side was warned about "extremely negative consequences for bilateral relations in case of possible moves by Yerevan".

It is obvious that this news was dictated to TASS by Maria Zakharov, or Lavrov himself.

1/5 The armed forces of Azerbaijan went to provocation in #NagornoKarabakh. On March 25, they violated the line of contact in the Shushi-Lisagor section and occupied the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.

2/5 The government of #Karabakh expects the peacekeeping forces of the #Russia to take steps to eliminate the #Azerbaijani violation. For days, 🇦🇿 has been spreading the lie that ammunition is being transported from 🇦🇲 to NK via the Stepanakert-Ghaibalishen-Lisagor mountain road.
3/5 It was a false pretext in order to carry out this provocation. Karabakh announced that, being surrounded for more than 100 days, this mountain road is being used to communicate with 4 villages of Stepanakert, Shushi regions.

#OTD 22 Mar 1920, #Azerbaijan'i forces began a systematic massacre of #Armenia'ns living in the town of Shushi, #NagornoKarabakh. The Massacre resulted in the complete destruction of Armenian district of Shushi & an almost complete elimination of its Armenian population. #History
According to the 1917 publication of the Caucasian Calendar, there were 43,869 residents in Shushi in 1916. The city was composed of 23,396 Armenians who formed 53.3 percent of the population, and 19,091 Shia Muslims (mainly Azerbaijanis) who formed 43.5 percent of the population
The total death toll of the Shushi massacre remains a matter of dispute, with figures being offered from as low as several hundred being offered,to as high as 20,000. Citing a contemporary Armenian government report, Hovannisian places the death toll of the massacre at 500.

#Lavrov said in 🇦🇿 that only people, humanitarian goods should be transported through the #LachinCorridor. He said that the installation of any checkpoint is not being considered there, but so that #Azerbaijan does not have any doubts about mines, they can install technical means Image
By technical means, Lavrov means the installation of scanners at the checkpoint of Russian peacekeepers.Lavrov's words mean that 🇷🇺 agrees with 🇦🇿 to change the statement of Nov 9, where Putin did not write about installing technical means, #Armenia did not agree to such a matter
No matter how much #Azerbaijan and #Russia discuss the issue of placing scanners, they cannot implement it without the agreement of 🇦🇲. Because that would mean the collapse of the arch. of the Nov 9, the loss of 🇷🇺's influence over 🇦🇲 in the process of resolving the NK conflict.

Some quick observations on the #ICJ's two orders today in the respective #Armenia-#Azerbaijan cases. 🪡1/6
Probably most controversial finding in today's orders is the (thinly reasoned) finding that the interruption of movement along the Lachin Corridor plausibly constitutes violation of #Cerd.
J Yusuf's criticism of shoehorning disputes into Cerd compromissory clause worth a read. 2/
Given the ICJ's finding in 2021 that Azerbaijan's claims relating landmines did not plausibly fall under the Cerd, little surprise that it rejected Azerbaijan's claims this time round. However, a few nuggets in the individual opinions... 3/

Milton Friedman spawned the Neoliberals & Leo Strauss spawned the Neoconservatives, they coalesced with other groups such as the Zionists revisionists to lead us to where in the West we are today, using United States, NATO & the EU as their hegemon conduits manufacturing enemies.
Russia & Christian Orthodox Church are their current manufactured enemy.
Islamists as manufactured enemy didn't stick, so they shifted to next best one.
Ironically, Prophecy of Christian Orthodox Church having the upper hand until Judgement Day is what they'll unravel instead.
