Shame on you for your treacherous support for #naziukraine as a proxy for expansionist,colonialist #Nato /US.
Shame on you Conservatives for the dirty bomb.
"Fake news:
#Ukraine is not preparing a 'dirty bomb' provocation. This is completely absurd. Mykhaylo Podolyak, advisor to the Ukrainian presidential office, stated this. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba also denied these claims."

Yesterday, we held the first "Defence and Statecraft Forum" & we were honoured to welcome a number of great guests. For those that couldn't make it, we are going to write a thread on the main points (in no particular order)🧵 /1

@Brussels_School #Defence #Statecraft
Supporters of #Ukraine are not doing enough to think about the plan for and repercussions of the country's eventual accession to the #EU and #NATO. One implication is that political and military support will have to be drastically enhanced. /2
Western countries have been providing weapons and support to #Ukraine, albeit more can certainly been done. However, as Ukraine presses #Russia there is a need to send Main Battle Tanks and Armoured Fighting Vehicles, as well as to ramp up deliveries of munitions.

Today I am going to talk about an old & dear friend, one of the first Indian startup entrepreneurs(electronics hardware), an amazing patriot, who was badly treated by GOI, 12-13 years ago. I met him again after 13 years & heard the amazing story, which I had missed. 1/n ….2/n
2/n This friend’s company, designed & implemented for the IAF in many airfields, (1) the national real time digital, communication system, for the IAF, which is now used to communicate between every defence airport and every air headquarters. (2) ….3/n
3/n (2) A cellular air control system for the air force, the best in the world at that time, to replace the legacy system of the kind, which is still used in most civilian airports in India. What happened next, is a disgrace to the country….4/n

Explainer of my recent @GLOBSEC paper (link at end) on #NATO policy on #innovation and #AI, what should come next, and how that could also help #Ukraine.

Background bit: I explain the concept of General-Purpose Technology (GPT). AI is a GPT.
This changes the policy mix.
For any new technology, one could reason that high defence spending and a robust defence industry could internalise: hire lots of new talent and done.
Why, then, do we pursue new forms of partnerships?
Aim is to tap into a broader pool of innovative talent that is...
...decentralised and dispersed across a wide range of civilian organisations. That's the GPT effect: a narrow new technology, e.g. better radar, would be much more internalised in a small number of "traditional" defence organisations.
Not so for AI.

NEW: For @CSCR_pk, I profile Air Marshal Ravi Gopal Krishana Kapoor, the 13th Commander-in-Chief of India's Strategic Forces Command.
#India #military #defence #nuclear #leadership #profile…
Noteworthy extracts:-

"Ravindra’s appointment was a rather hushed affair in the mainstream media, with a timid announcement and brief mention in a Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) newsletter from earlier this year".
"As Air Commodore, Ravi was the AOC of 9 Wing, Halwara, Punjab... It has served as a frontline base for offensive operations against Pak, including the Kargil War. Ravi’s tenure saw the resurrection of 220 Squadron (Desert Tigers) with the induction of Su-30MKI aircraft."

On #defence and #security policy choices in the #IndoPacific :
I recently produced research assessing how 12 nations are aligning, looking at defence spending, arms imports, military exercises, intel sharing, and force presence agreements.

Who balances against #China?
Looking at trends in the values of stocks of imported #armaments, #Vietnam and #Indonesia seem clearly to be balancing against #China, whereas #Malaysia drops off strongly, suggesting #bandwagoning. Singapore stable.
A statistical analysis on trends in stocks of imported armaments shows most countries with a break (a change) around the year 2014 - this is consistent with threat perceptions towards #China going up around 2012.

Beware Information war by certain sections of the foreign media, including the Hong Kong based media. Sadly there are Indian media, intellectuals and experts, who get easily carried away by such mis-information, instead of expressing scepticism, while reporting it!

A 🧵 on aspects of the #EU's #StrategicCompass, including #EastMed

1. The release of this document is important in itself. Putting it together was a long and complex process. It was a difficult but valuable effort to bridge MS national interests/concerns & present a cohesive >>
"plan of action for strengthening the EU's #security and #defence policy by 2030."

2. The objective of making the EU "a stronger and more capable security provider" is rather ambitious. Especially since the doc admits that EU security & defense will be complementary to #NATO >>
"which remains the foundation of collective defence for its members".

3. However it should be noted that the objectives under the 1st of the 4 pillars (i.e. Act) can enhance the EU's military and security role. These include:

- a Rapid Deployment Capacity of up to 5000 troops>

#mustread thread for anyone who wishes to understand #defence in depth & how #Finland is far more militarised & prepared as a society for war than even the #USA .
Much here that #India can imbibe especially in the #himalayas .
Much to learn here .
Imho this is what #India should pick up & implement .
1) Basic military training to all males 18+ in #Ladakh , #ArunachalPradesh,#Sikkim , #Uttarakhand & #HimachalPradesh .
2) Prepositioned places for demolition charges in all critical infrastructure.
3) Prepositioned stocks of small arms including ATGMs & Manpads that can be distributed if required .
4) Bunkers in all major & minor settlements alongwith vehicles for pre-planned escape routes .

🇪🇺🇺🇦👇important contribution. Start of debate forcing itself onto #EU agenda when Leaders meet for 'Growth summit' in Versailles next week.
Personally I have no doubt a "doubling-down" on EU #borrowing capacity in time will be necessary -- but not necessarily as proposed.
As a quick take, I think @benjaminhaddad @maxbergmann's proposal:
- lacks ambition in the most adverse scenario (1⃣) (obvious)
- faces question about EU borrowing priority in world we are waking up to tomorrow (2⃣);
- requires discussion of European defence fundamentals (3⃣).
1⃣ Worst-case: rest of Europe gets pulled into war w/ Russia. What nobody wishes, is not inconceivable.
We are then talking about something entirely different in scale in terms of mobilising resources across society, including issuance of war debt, to finance the effort.
