"il mito del Donbass Antifascista"
E' diffusa la favola delle "repubbliche" di #Donetsk-#Luhansk come esperienze anti imperialiste e antifasciste.
E' una bugia, ma è difficile capire QUANTO se non si studia lo specifico.
Vediamo assieme perché
#Ucraina #Russia Image
Abbiamo già visto in un precedente thread come la guerra in #Ucraina del 2014 non sia stata una "guerra civile" ma una operazione dei servizi segreti #russi realizzata grazie a una vera invasione da parte di truppe russe senza insegne con armi pesanti
Vedremo anche come #Mosca abbia usato la manovalanza di gruppi neonazisti, panslavisti, suprematisti e antisemiti del "Russkij Mir".
Molti vengono eliminati quando non sono più utili, sono membri di movimenti banditi nella stessa #russia, ma utili per l'operazione #Donbass.

Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia has taken Lysychansk. #Ukraine managed to withdraw without being encircled. The Russians now have the Luhansk Oblast, likely their focus will now turn to Donetsk.

In his speech last night, #Ukraine's President Zelensky mentioned: "Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion in Ukraine, 89 athletes and coaches have been killed in Ukraine. Another 13 have been captured by Russia."…

Thread: 3 July 2022: Day 130 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia is moving towards the annexation of #Kherson. This area of #Ukraine has been occupied since February and the Russians are planning to stage a referendum. One way Moscow is preparing for this is by arresting opposition elements.

Russian forces retreated from #SnakeIsland on June 30 following a Ukrainian missile and artillery campaign. The Russian Defense Ministry spun the retreat as “a step of goodwill.”
Read our latest report w/ @criticalthreats:… ImageImageImageImage
As ISW said earlier, the Russian defeat on #SnakeIsland will alleviate some pressure off the #Ukrainian coast by removing #Russian air defense and anti-shipping missile systems from the island, but it will not end the sea blockade.…
That's because Russian forces have access to land-based anti-ship systems in #Crimea and western #Kherson Oblast that can still target Ukrainian cargo, as well as the use of the remaining ships of the Black Sea Fleet.

Welcome to Wednesday, and daily thread #126 on #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

More death and destruction overnight from Russian missiles, but remember barbaric attacks like on #Kremenchuk are NOT mistakes. They are targeted terror attacks on a peaceful nation.

Read on...
Three dead, five injured so far in another cowardly attack by #Russia on a residential building in #Mykolaiv.

The usual terror tactics, soft targets. Civilians very much in the Russian army sights with each missile.
Each one a war crime and so far no justice as killing continues ImageImageImageImage
In case you missed it last night, another of #Russia's pathetic defences over the #Kremenchuk massacre is "but there's no video of the hit"

There is: here's a still of the giant missile about to kill dozens - video in the link.

1/10 Thread!

Some #European companies are still helping #Russia maintain their military-industrial complex, despite the #sanctions!

Now I will tell you about it in detail!
Europe imposed sanctions against #Russia after the annexation of #Crimea and the occupation of #Donbas back in 2014. Since then, the sanctions have been extended. But several companies still managed to get around the sanctions: from #Switzerland, #France, and #Germany.
3/10 Last week I was at the positions of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine in the south of щur country, where I managed to see the captured #Russian military equipment. It turned out that there are components of European production!

So disgusting that @Navalny-supporting liars and bots are trying to spread that he says Crimea belongs to Ukraine. He has NEVER EVER said this and he has ALWAYS said Crimea is Russian. LAST SPRING he denied a personal appeal by the head of Crimea's Tartars to STOP.
Alexey #Navalny is a racist who uses racial slurs against Ukrainians and worried in 2014 @Mod_Russia might get 'caught' as they slaughtered @DefenceU. Source: Alexey Navalny.
Don't lie to us. He's just another imperialist Russian trying to steal Ukraine's land. GLORY TO UKRAINE.

Thread: 16 June 2022: Day 113 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Every bloody time. This one with the Harpoons is among the worst since the breaking of #Russia's naval blockade is an immediate problem for us all, not just #Ukraine. Really not sure we have the time for this roundabout method.
Let's hope this is right with the HIMARS. Should have been done a while ago, but ...

Un thread sulla #Crimea e sulla situazione dei diritti umani dall'occupazione a oggi.

Un thread ⬇️…
Cosa è successo in Crimea dopo l’occupazione russa?
Si dà per scontato che essendo la popolazione largamente russofona, la Crimea sia oggi una ridente e felice regione della Federazione Russa. Per capirne di più sono andata a visionare quanti i documenti dell’ONU, di Amnesty International e altre organizzazioni umanitarie..

Cos'è la disinformazione?
Ieri sera #Travaglio a #dimartedì
"L'idea che dietro quanto accade in #Ucraina dal 2014 ci sia #Putin è una cavolata pazzesca".
Nessun contraddittorio
è una clamorosa bugia
vediamo perché
è ampiamente documentato come l'esercito russo e gli uomini dell'FSB siano stati al comando a #Donetsk e #Luhansk dall'inizio.
è noto e pacifico che "little green men" siano stati una caratteristica dell'annessione della #Crimea
ma non solo…
Da subito, furono soldati senza insegne, equipaggiati molto bene a prendere il controllo di edifici governativi ucraini nel #Donbass.
Qui ad esempio i little green men, armati con armi russe non in dotazione agli ucraini, fuori dal municipio di #Luhansk, già il 16 aprile 2014

Guerra #Ucraina, ricapitoliamo lo stato delle cose:
1) Nel 2014 gli #USA partecipano al #golpe contro il governo eletto in Ucraina (Yanukovych);
2) La #Russia per risposta occupa la #Crimea, storicamente russa;
3) Novembre 2021 l'#Ucraina firma un partenariato con gli #USA per l'entrata nella #NATO con la promessa della restituzione della #Crimea;
Perciò la storia secondo cui questo fosse una paranoia russa è falso, l'Ucraina stava per entrare nella Nato.
4) Dal 2018 inizia un massiccio armamento dell'#Ucraina da parte degli #USA, anche con #Javelin, droni...
5) Il conflitto non è solo tra #Russia e #Ucraina, le difficoltà russe sul campo sono anche dettate dalla fattiva partecipazione della #Nato, con armamenti, informazioni...

1/ Il 16 luglio 1990, la Verkhovna Rada ha adottato la Dichiarazione di sovranità statale dell'#Ucraina e il territorio dell'Ucraina è stato dichiarato inviolabile entro i confini esistenti. Il preambolo della Dichiarazione sottolinea:
2/ "la sovranità, l'indipendenza, la completezza e l'indivisibilità del potere della repubblica all'interno del suo territorio, l'indipendenza e l'uguaglianza nelle relazioni estere". Tutto ciò è stato prima riconosciuto e poi disatteso dalla Russia nel corso degli anni.
3/ Nel 1994 la #Russia e la #Bielorussia hanno firmato il Memorandum di Budapest, con il quale non solo promettevano di proteggere l'Ucraina contro eventuali aggressioni, ma anche di non violare la sua integrità territoriale. Poi però l'Ucraina l'hanno tradita.

SCOTT RITTER: Phase Three in #Ukraine
No amount of western military aid has been able to prevent #Russia from achieving its military objective of liberating the entire territories of both #Lugansk and #Donetsk as Phase Three begins.
#Russia’s “Special Military Operation”, which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. Despite stiffer than expected #Ukrainian resistance (bolstered by billions of dollars of western military assistance and accurate, real-time battlefield intelligence by the U.S. and..
... other #NATO members) #Russia is winning the war on the ground, and in a big way.
After more than ninety days of incessant #Ukrainian propaganda, echoed mindlessly by a complicit western mainstream media that extolls the battlefield successes of the Ukrainian armed forces..

1/4 Every day Ukrainians are dying - both soldiers and civilians. The price we pay for freedom is living in constant danger right now. There are no safe places in #Ukraine today.

#RussiaUkraineWar #RussianWarCrimes
2/4 All these lives could be spared if the West didn't try to be friendly with 🇷🇺 even after #Chechnya, #Georgia, #Crimea and #Donbas. The West has pretended to look another way, so today russian weapons with details produced in the EU are bringing deaths and tragedy to Ukraine.
3/4 russian war machine is financed through sales of oil and gas, sold to the EU. Now russians have gone even further and are blackmailing the whole world with hunger and nuclear war.

#Kissinger è uno statista che ha avuto intuizioni giuste e anche sbagliate. Ha sostenuto il disgelo con la Cina nel 1972 ma anche il bombardamento della Cambogia nel '70. Non è detto che concessioni di territorio ucraino alla Russia siano la soluzione perché "lo dice K" (thread)
Proviamo a testare questo "what if": cosa accadrebbe se l'Ucraina chiedesse la pace in cambio dei territori che #Putin ha già strappato (e distrutto) con la forza? Putin non ha mai detto che fa la guerra perché vuole in Donbass o Mariupol /2
Putin ha sempre detto 4 cose. 1. Non riconosce il diritto all'esistenza di un'#Ucraina indipendente 2. Vuole un governo-fantoccio a Kiev come a Minsk ("denazificazione") 3. Vuole un'Ucraina incapace di difendersi ("demilitarizzazione") e 4... /3

Thread di Gary #Kasparov tradotto:
A 3 mesi dalla guerra genocida di #Putin contro l'#Ucraina, la squadra di salvataggio di Putin si sta riunendo di nuovo.
Capi di Stato, media, opinionisti, i soliti sospetti pronti a salvare un orrendo status quo e a sacrificare migliaia di vite ucraine, chiamandola pace. 2/14
L'#Ucraina sanguina, senza le armi che ha chiesto. #Putin si affretta ad annettere altro territorio ucraino, donando passaporti e denaro, uccidendo e deportando migliaia di persone e sostituendole coi russi, come sta facendo da 8 anni nella #Crimea e nel #Donbas occupati. 3/14
