#Zelenskyy’s shirt featured #Ukraine #military emblem, not hate symbol”

#russian #disinformation Image
“AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. #Zelenskyy wore a #military T-shirt that featured the official #emblem for the #Ukraine #Armed #Forces. In its center, the emblem includes Ukraine’s official coat of arms.
The image on his shirt did not match the #Iron #Cross or any hateful symbol, according to historians and #extremism experts.”

Today, BF launches a new investigation on the deadly effects of border control in Niger. Over the past year we investigated the relation between bordering practices, spatial shifts in migrant trajectories and increased danger of crossing Niger’s Saharan desert.

A thread 🧵
In 2015, with the support of the European states and agencies, #Niger adopted a new Law on illegal trafficking of migrants. Law 2015-36 establishes new forms of #border control with the aim of thwarting #migration across Northern Niger to Libya. Image
Law 2015-36 has not stopped migrants' #mobility in the region but rather forced trajectories into more remote areas of the #desert, creating dangerous and often fatal conditions. Image

Biden has failed to follow through on his promise to create a humane and rights-respecting border. Instead, he has continued to use and expanded Trump policies, leading to record numbers of dead at the border. Watch @POTUS give the State of the Union here:…
@POTUS I'll be live tweeting with an eye on immigration and policing. In an earlier hearing, politicians falsely linked migrants with drugs and violence. They continued to call for abusive border policies. Will Biden be any different?
"Power for the sake of power...gets us nowhere." I agree. Why then doesn't @POTUS show real leadership and take a principled stance on US immigration and border policy and follow through on promises to create humane policies?

A local journalist:
"Fighting between AFG & PAK border forces started in 'Shiro Oba' area, in Spin Boldak-Chaman crossing point (on #Durand_Line), in Kandahar Province.
The #clash started when AFG forces were building new check posts in the area & Pakistani side prevented them."
The #Taliban confirmed clashes in Spin Boldak of Kandahar, but didn't provide details about the reason& casualties.
There are conflicting news about the status of the crossing point. Some sources said it was closed, others reporting about reopening of the gate.

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...
This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

Happening now: @POTUS @JoeBiden delivers #SOTU2022

"Tonight, we meet ...with an unwavering resolve that freedom will always triumph over tyranny"
.@POTUS wastes little time getting to #Russia-#Ukraine

"6 days ago, Russia’s Vladimir Putin sought to shake the very foundations of the free world thinking he could make it bend to his menacing ways. But he badly miscalculated..."
#Russia #Putin "thought he could roll into #Ukraine & the world would roll over" per @POTUS "Instead he met a wall of strength he never anticipated or imagined"

"He met the Ukrainian people"

#SOTU 🧵-- Tonight @POTUS will deliver his first State of the Union address. In addition to confronting the crisis in #Ukraine, @WhiteHouse says the President will speak in depth about his economic vision.
He will lay out a 4-point plan to lower costs including:
* Making more things in #America, strengthening #supplychains
* Reducing the costs of everyday expenses for working families
* Promoting fair competition, protecting consumers
* Eliminating barriers to good-paying jobs
While you will hear @POTUS tout practical measures like reducing prescription drug, health care and childcare costs, you may NOT hear the words "BUILD BACK BETTER." A senior administration official told me "It's not about the name of the bill. It's about the ideas..."

Sunday border scramble in the sun, near Malval in Geneva. Political borders seeming dauntingly less trivial this week, as we think of people in Europe fleeing to safety across borders, while soldiers invade across others. #Geography #BorderNerds 🇫🇷🇨🇭 ImageImageImage
No. 138 We chased down lots of border stones in a marshy wood, of different ages. This one was apparently moved to save it from being swept away by the stream, so the marks on top indicate this, showing that the border follows the stream after this point.🇨🇭🇫🇷 #Border #Geography ImageImageImageImage
No. 139 Super strange F (France) engraved backwards; G (Geneva) presumably recarved over previous mark/sign🇨🇭🇫🇷 #Border #Geography ImageImageImageImage

Starting off with the famous yet wildly misrepresented Battle of Longewala. In this thread I will break down the tactics and weapons used in this epic battle. (1/n)
The battle took place on the night of 4th December 1971 and continued on till 7th December.

Pakistan's objective was to march on from Longewala to Ramgarh and capture Jaisalmer. This would cut off the salient and put India on the defensive on the Western front. (2/n)
For this long march, the Pakistani tanks were carrying extra fuel tanks and with their massive superiority in numbers, weren't expecting strong resistance at Longewala.

The Longewala post sat on a dune offering good defensive positioning and was surrounded by barbed wires. (3/n)

The #Protocol on IRL/NI was agreed 2 years ago, with a key objective of avoiding a hard @BorderIrish

But what has #Brexit been like for people living along the #border?

We @QUBSSESW @europe_icban @UKandEU investigated…
And our report is out today!
1/10 Cover of Border After Brexit report
This is our 4th QUB/ICBAN report since the 2016 referendum.

The study involved an online #survey of those living/working in the Central Border Region.

Our survey received c400 responses, equally spread either side of the border. There were also interviews & focus groups.

We are VERY grateful to each of the respondents to this survey.

It took a time to complete because we insisted on getting comments/views/examples…

And hence the report is another fairly hefty one, as the #Contents show.

The focus is on giving space/voice to respondents.

1/ It’s highly disturbing that the transnational narco-criminal terrorists known as Mexican cartels would hang a banner on the Juarez bridge threatening to shoot across the Rio Grande river -- into Texas -- at law enforcement agents.… #border #bordercrisis
2/ We now know these non-state, non-uniformed belligerents followed up on that threat in the El Paso sector. This constitutes an act of war, no different from what we see with Israel and Hamas.
3/ The question is, how shall we respond? If this blatant action goes without swift and immediate response, then the lack of consequences means an emboldened enemy.

1/5 Which #TravelRestrictions were most effective to contain the spread of #COVID19?🌍New systematic review out now in the Journal of Infection (pre-proof):


@rki_de @CBcheraoui @Elie__Akl @SPARK_AUB @biainfection

2/5 In 2020, most countries switched from total to targeted #border closures followed by mandatory #quarantine and #screening of #travelers.
3/5 Evidence suggests: border closures may reduce the number of #COVID19 cases, disrupt disease spread across countries/between regions & slow #outbreak progression.

Early implementation, in combination with measures to reduce #transmission rates, likely enhances these effects.

Important read from Lucy Papachristou @lucypapa96 on the experience of separated families at the HR-BiH border.…
Over the past months, refugee families trapped outside the EU in northwestern #Bosnia have begun trying a new “game”, the "stay game". An attempt by some husbands to join again their wives and children, as legal as possible.
“The fact that these men are denied the right to seek asylum and instead expelled from the country is a breach of international law in its own right”, says Lisa Koerber @eine_Lisa_ , head of the border violence monitoring programme at @NoNameKitchen1

Epic border nerd egg hunt this morning along the Franco-Swiss border near Chancy (aka bribing the kids to go on another of mama’s mad border expeditions!). This is ‘borne’ number 1.5 which, confusingly, comes before 1, with wiggly line to mean ‘then the border follows the river’. ImageImage
Borne 1.4 seemed to change its mind about the direction of the border in 1946 and a new line was carved. Another chocolate egg was found by our brave adventurers. ImageImageImage
1.3, 1.2 and 1.1 were close together. Eggs were hastily hidden, then eaten. ImageImageImage

@CortesSteve: #Democrats make tons of money off of deranged journalists who think what they're seeing isn't child trafficking. Only ppl befitting from #BidenBorderCrisis r criminals & smugglers who control border region for the Mexican cartels.
Data provided by @CBP patrol for Feb/2021 illegal migrants paid cartels over $400M to get smuggled into U.S.A., equates to $14.6M ea day bc of @JoeBiden #border radicalism. #BidenBorderCrisis #securetheborder
Not only is the U.S.A.'s national security & economic vitality threatened, but we're also seeing a massive transfer of money to some of the most dangerous Mexican cartels in the entire world-cartels who are looking at the multi-billion dollar revenue boost. #BidenBorderCrisis
