Members of the parliamentary #EcocideAlliance & #ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (@ASEANMP) issued a statement on environmental crimes in #Ukraine, describing some of the attacks as likely to cause “widespread, long-term and severe damage to the natural environment”.
“Now, if ever, would be the time for the international community to finally draw a global moral red line concerning environmental atrocities, and put an end to impunity for #ecocide” writes the #EcocideAlliance regarding the #invasion of Ukraine.… #crimes
“The most effective way to enforce criminal accountability long-term is to amend the #RomeStatute to explicitly include ecocide as a 5th crime against #peace - not limited only to #war time.”… #conflict #security #warcrimes #internationalcrimes #StopEcocide

According to pro-Taliban's Social Media activists, #Hajji_Bahram_Musa, a #Haqqani Network's senior member& commander of Khost Airport, has #carried_his_bride in a military #helicopter from her house in #Logar, to #Khost.
The activists criticised the move as corruption& #betrayal. ImageImageImageImage
Reacting to SM reports, #Taliban's spokesman said:
"There have been reports on SM that a govt. official has flown his wife by #helicopter from Logar to Khost. This is enemy's propaganda&we strongly reject it."
Pro-TB SM activists:
"The spokesman is lying."
#Taliban spokesman Qari Yosuf Ahmadi, #deleted his defensive tweet after he was called a liar by pro-Taliban SM accounts.
Ahmadi had rejected SM& media reports about a TB Commander, who flown his wife by a military #helicopter from his in-laws family in Logar to Khost, as untrue. Image

Millions of people have been uprooted from their homes in #Ukraine and are in need of aid.

As the world responds, those enduring ongoing crisis in #Africa will also be impacted by the #conflict and must not be left behind.

It’s time to act. Share this thread to raise awareness.
Global price increases are also going to affect people here in the #UK and have a devastating impact on people across the world.
As a result of the #conflict, natural gas, and food and fertiliser prices have skyrocketed.

Real reasons for #conflict are buried in history & intermittently ooze out like hot lava from fissures. #Europe's been an active conflict zone for long born out of a stiff #RomanHangover ever since the #Empire collapsed.#Theopolitics is 1 ingredient in its conflict cocktail
Conflict in #Europe has to be understood in that context before jumping in & taking sides. Colonial times afforded no option & the world got involved twice converting #EuropeanConflict's into #WorldWar's. Many unconcerned died. India lost many braves from #Gallipoli to #Siam
#Ukraine is the latest in a tiring list & has many players beyond just army & politicians. Eastern Orthodox Church, Greek Catholic Church, Patriarchies of Moscow, Constantinople & Kyiv & that west & east of #Dnieper think differently.. all making up the hidden factors

#OECD calls for well targeted support to the vulnerable as war undermines global #recovery.

Read full press release⤵️ Image
Global economic #growth will be more than 1⃣ percentage point lower this year as a result of this #conflict.

#OECD calls for greater #EU solidarity in providing help to 🇺🇦 refugees:

Already some 3⃣ million people have fled #Ukraine with more waves of refugees expected in the weeks ahead.

This is far higher than in wake of the recent Syrian refugee crisis. 👇… Image

What is the endgame, the strategy of #victory, or to put it differently, the vision for #conflict #resolution in #Ukraine? What are feasible scenarios of future relations between #Russia and the #West? Some thoughts. Highly speculative and simplified.🧵1/9
2/9 Scenario 1: Putin wins militarily in Ukraine and achieves his political goals: regime change and demilitarization. Oppression in Russia increases. Western sanctions intensify, aiming at regime change in Russia. European division becomes permanent.…
3/9 At the moment this scenario seems very much possible, unfortunately. The question is at what costs. Total destruction? Ukrainian statehood as we knew it will be lost but partisan warfare and sanctions over time may lead to an intra-elite coup in Russia as well (Scenario 3)

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩
