How much is #Ukraine similar to #Syria?

Back in 2016. power of Bashar Al-#Assad was on his last legs. Insurgents took over the almost entire country, leaving him with roughly 15% of land under government control.

All big cities were lost or heavily contested. The enemy was as close as two kilometers to the center of #Damascus.

Then #Russians came. Slowly but methodically, they started to bombard insurgents, which we can call a conglomerate of various ideological and interest groups, including designated terrorists such as Jabhat Al Nusra and #ISIS.

Welcome to a new week and the daily thread for Monday on #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine

Day 173

A manic end to yesterday - I'll recap a little, but if you want to scroll through, here's the link:

Firstly, you guys got me to 20,000 followers, so thank you all so much💙💛

Honest reporting, fact-checked as much as humanly possible, but I still know right from wrong.

This week I have a lot of commentary work, but will try to be as quick as ever with updates throughout.
News breaking right now is another night-time attack on #Kharkiv

There have been multiple explosions in the city so far and more rockets on the way according to tracking.

The missiles have landed near the centre according to early reports

I hope you get the chance for a peaceful and relaxing Sunday. That's something many thousands in #Ukraine haven't had for almost 6 months.

It's Day 172 of #Russia's invasion and here's the daily thread with all the news and analysis you need, updated throughout the day⬇️
Quite a bit of late action on yesterday's thread. You can scroll through yesterday's thread here if you need a catch up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Potentially good news from @amnesty

The organisation's pledged to have its' "#Ukraine report" examined by independent experts.

Amnesty International says it "wants to understand what exactly went wrong" according to Deutsche Welle.

Appointing @AgnesCallamard perhaps?

THREAD In 1995 after #Oluja I reported from #Bosnia on #Serb refugees fleeing #Croatia.
A guy, 25 driving a tractor loaded w/ women & children shouts: “Hey, jounalist, remember me?” I didn’t. “In July 91 [after Struga massacre] you told my commander ‘your parastate [#Krajina] /2
2/ can’t exist, you should find a way to reconcile with #Croatia, it is your country'. They kept telling us we’ll never lose, that Serbia is behind us, but as time went on I oft thought about your words. I sensed you were right & we were headed for our own destruction”. Then & /3
3/ there I had nothing to tell him. Every refugee said “our own army ordered us to head away from home”. It was a cynical calculation by Serb leadership (I cannot claim whether Croatian Serbs decided on their own or if Milošević & the Karadžić lot from Bosnia influenced it). /4

While Western countries criticize #China and its Belt and Road Initiative, China ignores the noise, keeps it's head down, and get's work done. Here is the new China-built Pelješac Bridge, a key infrastructure project in #Croatia. This bridge is a gamechanger & here is why:
(1/4)
The 2.4 km bridge connects the Croatian mainland with the Peljesac Peninsula of its southernmost Dubrovnik-Neretva County, bypassing a short strip of land belonging to Bosnia and Herzegovina. This bridge now gives Croatia territorial integrity and better access to the area (2/4)
Construction companies from Italy, Turkey, Austria, and China all bid for the job but #China won the bid as they offered the most affordable price and also offered to complete the project 6 months faster than anyone else.

I don't have any of the details of this situation in #Croatia yet (guessing it's more like she was arrested by Croatian police on an Interpol red notice??), but no country should ever extradite anyone to #Turkmenistan due to the risk of torture & disappearance in custody there.
If that is the situation, then hopefully the authorities in #Croatia will come to their senses soon. This kind of thing happens far too often: a brutal dictatorship abuses the Interpol system to try to get their hands on activists & perceived opponents abroad.
Oftentimes, it’s a low-level officer just reading things off a computer screen & detaining the person when the red notice pops up. Eventually, someone higher up sees the situation, realises it’s a dictatorship trying to abuse the international system, and releases the person.

Day 57 of the war in #Ukraine

#Russia's merciless and totally illegal invasion continues

Welcome to the daily thread for Thursday.

#StandWithUkraine️ #StopRussia
#Mariupol' is still standing.
No response yet from #Russia on Ukraine's offer to exchange all those in Azovstal steel works (fighters and civilians) for Russian Prisoners of War.

Meanwhile the crazy TikTok-ing head of Chechnya has guaranteed that Mariupol will be Russian today.
Quick update on this which emerged last night.

#USA has also added that 14 Howitzers are now in #Ukraine hands - around 50 🇺🇦army personnel are currently being trained in Europe on how to operate the equipment.

1/ Is anyone surprised that Moscow would - immediately - claim that Russian atrocities in #Bucha were “staged”? Does anyone remember that Serbian President #Vucic – two decades after the fact – claimed that Serbian atrocities in #Racak, Kosovo were “fabricated”? 🧵
2/ Is everyone aware #Belgrade is revising its own past in the #Balkans – and distorting present reality of Russia’s brutal invasion? That there is a straight line between Vucic’s denial of Racak and Belgrade’s promotion of Russian aggression in #Ukraine?
3/ No. Accomplished @nytimes journalist @ATHigginsNYT downplays the Serbian government role in fostering adulation of #Putin, support for Russian invasion and Russian and Chinese #authoritarianism. Instead, we get more vox-pop ‘Balkan ghosts.’

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
