THREAD🧵Many of the corruption allegations swirling around President Biden have been around for years, dating back to his son #HunterBiden’s early trips to #China with him on Air Force Two.

But recently, a flood of new information has come to light.…
This includes allegations from 2 separate whistleblowers—one with the #IRS involving the #HunterBiden criminal probe and another who’s alleging corruption and potential bribes on the part of Joe Biden.

There are also allegations from Rep. @JamesComer regarding flows of foreign……
New Ukraine Revelation

On April 16, 2014, then-Vice President Biden met at the White House with #HunterBiden’s business partner, Devon Archer. Although it isn’t known what was discussed at that meeting, it appeared to have set many events in motion.

One week later, on April 21,…… Image

Another small milestone in Europe's war.

Today is Day 450 of #Russia's unprovoked and illegal invasion of its neighbour.

This is the start of Friday's daily thread. Already another day of missile attacks.

For Thursday's news, click and scroll here:
The night attack by #Russia started with drones and ended with more cruise missiles.

Only 3 of the 6 missiles fired from the Black Sea were intercepted according to #Ukraine and there were hits in #KryvyiRih

16 more drones were shot down. Image
In #KryvyiRih a 64-year-old woman was seriously injured.

A private business was hit. An administration building and workshops were severely damaged by the blast and subsequent fires.
Another man received slight injuries but did not go to hospital.

Wednesday 10 May
Day 441 of this terrible war.
At least #Ukraine has woken relatively peacefully today in contrast to most recent days.

All the news on #Russia's invasion, all day in one thread. If you want to buy me a coffee please see my bio for the link💙💛
So y'day was another violent & busy day as #Russia celebrated Victory Day but with zero victory to salute in its illegal invasion of #Ukraine

More deaths by fire, setbacks in #Bakhmut and #Wagner being labelled terrorists by more countries. Catch up here:
#Russia's losses in the last 24 hours show a marked decrease in he amount of equipment destroyed compared to the recent trend.

However, #Ukraine is killing more and more soldiers as Russians continue kamikaze tactics in #Donetsk with the one resource they have plenty of: people. Image

Welcome along to my daily thread with everything you need to know about #Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine.

Wednesday is Day 427.
If you missed y'day's news, no fear, the link is here!

And what a day with loads of stories, particularly #RussiaOnFire

26 April is also the anniversary of the #Chornobyl #Chernobyl disaster in #Ukraine.

The repressive Soviet occupiers of the time refused to admit a problem and even forced kids in #Kyiv on to the streets a few days later for the MayDay parade.

Very little to report today on #Russia's losses of the last 24 hours (as estimated by #Ukraine)

Broadly in line with recent days.

Hello and welcome to the daily "#Ukraine" thread for Day 424 of the awful and illegal war started by #Russia.

For those of us in #England, happy St George's Day. It's also London Marathon day, so let's wish luck to this remarkable man: #StandWithUkraine

Yesterday we saw #Russia's brotherly love for Eton Musk. Russian advances in #Bakhmut. Explosions in occupied #Melitopol as well as usual attacks on the liberated part of #Kherson and #Kharkiv.

Review anything you missed by clicking and scrolling⬇️

For the first time the @TheStudyofWar states that #Ukraine troops have claimed land south of the river (left bank) in #Kherson region.

I'm not 100% convinced. I'd say this coastal region is uncontrolled, with very regular sorties by 🇺🇦 tactical squads:…

Hello again and welcome to the daily thread covering the #RussiaUkraine war for Weds 12 April, which is Day 413 of the illegal invasion by Moscow.

All yesterday's news is just one click away, right here:
Let's start with strange "goings-on" in #Russia overnight.

It started with what some residents in #Yekaterinburg thought was a missile, but could well have been a meteorite.
In #Yekaterinburg strange "fire circles" reportedly developed at the site of impact. Officials in #Russia say it's all a fake for "Cosmonauts Day"

In #Moscow there was definitely something unidentified floating above the capital yesterday evening. ImageImageImage

👉NEW -- Revealed: America’s secret military deployment on British Cyprus

by @kennardmatt

The size of the US Air Force presence on British #Cyprus has long been kept secret. We now reveal the increasing US military presence on the Mediterranean island…
👉 The US Air Force is expanding its deployment on the RAF’s #Cyprus base to 129 airmen, and is building a new 147-room installation costing $27m.

The US spy force, the 1st Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron, is permanently deployed at the British base, RAF Akrotiri.
👉 UK government refuses to say which US agencies have a presence on UK's #Cyprus territories.

But a secret GCHQ document noted: “Cyprus hosts a wide range of UK and US intelligence facilities”, at four sites on the island.…

Hello. It's Day 323 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Putin's army - along with the mercenaries - seem on the verge of a first military success for months since losing two whole swathes of land over the summer.

All the news right here in my daily thread, updated in real time.
Some graphic and horrendous scenes yesterday in an increasingly bloody battle in all senses.

#Ukraine claiming it has not lost #Soledar yet.
Plenty of other news too - you can bring yourself up to date by scrolling through Wednesday's thread here:

430* more troops in #Russia's military killed in the last 24 hours. A big figure, but well down on recent peaks.

Also down are the general equipment numbers destroyed.

This is in line with the end of one big battle as we seem to be at #Soldar.

59 years since the Bloody Christmas massacres & Greek Cypriot coup of the Republic of Cyprus took place.

On this day, Turkish Cypriots began to be slaughtered and forced from their homes, villages and livelihoods.

Cyprus was divided in 1963, not 1974.

Less than 3 years after its establishment, the Greek Cypriot leadership had already become tired of sharing power with the Turkish Cypriots.

They’re hunger for Enosis had not subsided, and the genocidal Akritas Plan was created to ensure total dominance over the island.

The Bloody Christmas massacres were carried out during this time on purpose.

The Greek Cypriot leadership hoped that because it was Christmas, foreign reporters would not be present to record the mass killings of Turkish Cypriots.
