1/26 Since I'm finishing let me praise the team for what we've achieved in @turris_cz over the past 2,5 years.

...and let me remind you that those were years of the Covid pandemic, years of the biggest supply chain disruptions, and semiconductor shortages in the past 4 decades
@turris_cz 2/26 yet we managed to grow and continued to improve

#Sales and #Production

and that deserves applause for everyone involved! 🚀

This is approx how our sales grew over the years, excluding initial #indiegogo campaigns in the early days.

Not bad, right! Image
@turris_cz 3/26 This is how the sales would look with initial IGG campaign numbers included. (yes, we don't provide numbers on purpose, it's for your imagination) Image

Day 120 📌 ‘It is the only country where people got shot because they wrapped themselves in a European flag. 🇺🇦 has gone through hell and high water for one simple reason: and that’s their desire to join the EU,’ – @vonderleyen said. More in our brief ⬇️…
@vonderleyen EU leaders will decide today whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, following a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday 🙏 Ukraine’s president, @ZelenskyyUa, said he had spoken to 11 EU leaders on Wednesday about Ukraine’s candidacy.
@vonderleyen After the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the #Czech government decided to suspend the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation and later to Belarus, except for humanitarian causes, till March 2023 🤷‍♀️

During the three weeks of my stay in #Vienna, I heard several times the questions: "#Ukrainian and Russian languages are quite similar, aren't they?" and "Ukrainian and Russian are like different versions of German in Austria and Germany?". So, let me explain👇🏻
First of all, Ukrainian and Russian are different languages and by no means one language. Ukrainian is not a dialect of Russian. #Moscow has always tried to pretend that the Ukrainian and Russian languages are similar. The truth is that Russians do not even understand Ukrainian
Ukrainian is the language that most closely resembles #Belarusian with which it has 29 common characteristics. Furthermore, Ukrainians can easily understand #Polish, #Czech, #Slovak etc.

#TankTuesday #ColdWar #Tanks #History - While Germany's Leopard 2 MBT differs from Leopard 1, it's the longest production tank "brand" I know. Leopard 1 debuted ~1965. 55+ years later, Leopard 2 is still in service. Not sure when production ended. Great clip from @PhilLoder!

The Czech Republic will repair Ukrainian tanks and armored personnel carriers damaged during the fighting, as announced by the Minister of Defense of the #Czech Republic, Jana Černochová, the BBC reports.


#StopPutin #StopRussia #UkraineRussiaWar
She said that the first vehicles would be Ukrainian T-64 tanks but they would be followed by others, including infantry fighting vehicles. The minister said that the Czech Republic was the first country to which Ukraine applied for maintenance and repair of combat vehicles.
The Czech newspaper Lista also reported that the transport will be repaired in Slovakia.

The Czech Republic became the first country to officially supply Soviet T-72 tanks and BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles from its reserves after a full-scale Russian invasion.

Thread: 4 April 2022: Day 40 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Not exactly subtle from #Russia, and quite funny to include #Belarus, which has been stripped of even the minimal sovereignty it had before the war on #Ukraine began.
#Russia's troops ransacked and looted Trostyanets, one of the towns retaken by #Ukraine's army near Sumy in the northeast. Among the victims was an elderly man who fought for the Soviets in Afghanistan, because he wouldn't give up his home.

Excellent news from #Czechia @JanLipavsky’s confirmation is a very positive step. BUT … a short 🧵on #czech politics.
1. Beware expectations raised a little high here. portraying @P_Fiala as #Havel’s heir is v. problematic - he has a strange rel to #EU…
2. @JanLipavsky is from a different party than @P_Fiala - the pirates, who along with STAN have a much stronger claim to be the standard bearers of Havelism in #Czechia today.
Fiala’s support 4 Lipavsky is great but this is as much domestic power politics (v Zeman) as principle
3. The two are, nonetheless, connected as Zeman as been not only a disastrous President morally (migration, Allegations of corruption & influence from kremlin,etc) but an enabler for both 🇷🇺 & 🇨🇳 in 🇨🇿.
We can expect to see that diminish without Babis facilitating Zeman.

#czech elections ended with a victory of the (nominally) liberal-right. Here, some of my takeaways #volby #threat
Yes, Babis lost. Still, ANO received 27.2% of vote shares, remaining the biggest single party. Compared to 2017, he lost slightly over 2%, 6 seats, and ~52 000 votes. Thus, not that much really. ANO will also still have the highest number of seats: 72
SPOLU is the big winner of the election. 27.8%, 71 seats and 40k votes more than ANO. Coalition with another coalition-Pirstan gives them clear majority, with the ODS leader, Fiala, a designed PM

A massive data leak, according to an international research network, uncovers hundreds of politicians' covert interactions with mailbox firms. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published a portion of the research findings
this evening, claiming that more than 330 politicians and bureaucrats from 91 nations are involved in offshore business, including Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis. Many celebrities, including the German model Claudia Schiffer,
are or were customers of offshore corporations, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Selenskyj, countless confidants of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Jordan's King Abdullah II, and many others.

Hundreds of families in the #Czech Republic whose houses have been damaged or destroyed by the tornado are eligible for financial help…

BUT that money could be confiscated by bailiffs.

The country has a serious problem with bailiffs & private debt collectors... Image
In 2001, the Czech state created a system of private bailiffs who have been earning large amounts of money from indebted citizens.

The scam works like this...
Indebtedness usually starts from a small debt of that's the equivalent of a few euros.

Creditors would not inform the debtor about the debt, but they would pass it to a private debt collector.

The private debt collectors would then wait several years before they pounced.
