Welcome to Wednesday's daily🧵covering all the news from #Russia's war of choice.

The Kremlin hopes to mobilise 1m "soldiers" to fight the losing battle. To defend their homeland, #Ukraine troops need winter gear. Please help us reach £10k target

Today is Day 217.
Yesterday saw the "results" of the fixed and illegal referenda, blank voting papers, stolen toilets, empty passenger jets heading into #Russia and much more.

Missed it? No problem - scroll though from here:
#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

One of the most important pieces of news came late last night and that is #Italy's confirmed commitment to #Ukraine despite the change of government.

So it looks like someone committed a terrorist attack and a defacto declaration of war, against both the European economy and Russia. Wonder which submarine equipped power could have done it? 🤔

A former Polish Defense Minister, Radek Sikorski, has attributed to the United States the sabotage of two pipelines, Nord Stream 1 and 2, which carry natural gas from #Russia to #Germany.
#USA #Ukraine #EU #EUpoli #WorldPoli
Poland’s Secretary of State denounced Sikorki’s claim as “Russian #propaganda,” calling it “a smear campaign against Poland, the US and Ukraine, accusing the West of aggression against #NS1 and #NS2.
But Russia literally controls the taps, so self-sabotage claim makes no sense!

Rest in peace Nord Stream 1.

#Europe is paying the price of decades of colonisation and of being colonised by the #US.

Do we think we are tough enough and allow ourselves to impose whatever sanctions on #Russia? We have a blow in our face and no Russian gas ahead of us.
Which solution is the #US bringing to Europe now? Image
Believe it or not, #Russia still delivering gas to #Europe via #Ukraine, but not for long.

Eine Rechtsextreme hat in #Italien die Wahl gewonnen & wird mit einem Rechtsbündnis regieren. Überraschung? Wohl kaum! Es geht schon lange nicht mehr um einen #Rechtsruck in Europa, sondern um gezielte Machtergreifungspläne, wie in anderen EU-Staaten. 1/7 profil.at/ausland/wer-si…
Rechtsextreme sind europaweit gut vernetzt und gerade die #EU ist seit Jahren ihr erklärtes Feindbild: So ist es auch keine Überraschung, dass die AfD den Wahlsieg der rechtsextremen #GiorgiaMeloni feiert. Denn Rechtspopulisten jubeln gemeinsam. 2/7

JUST IN: The European Union must stop importing diamonds from Russia, said five of the bloc's 27 countries in a joint proposal, as the EU prepares new sanctions against Moscow for waging war against Ukraine.
The bloc has swung into action again after President Vladimir Putin ordered a partial military mobilization last week and moved to annex parts of eastern Ukraine.
Poland, Ireland, Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia proposed introducing a retaliatory ban on imports of diamonds from Russia (Alrosa), the world's largest producer of rough gems. EU needs unanimity to make Belgium accept such a ban.

JUST IN: A new survey by S&P Global revealed that the Eurozone’s economic downturn deepened in September, with business activity contracting for the third consecutive month. Image
The report found that manufacturers across 19-country unions were hit hard by rising energy costs, with the purchasing manager's index (PMI) sinking to its lowest level since 2013.
The PMI, which is seen as a good gauge of overall economic health, fell from 48.9 in August to 48.2 in September. S&P Global expects the euro area’s economy to shrink by 0.1% in the third quarter.

JUST IN: Germany wants European Union citizens to be banned from taking up top posts at Russian state firms. Berlin is urging Brussels to ban EU citizens from holding senior positions at Russian state-owned companies.
According to reports, the document states that EU citizens should no longer be allowed to be on the supervisory or management boards of Russian state companies.
The proposal is justified by the problem of “strategic corruption”. It states that it is a long-standing Russian strategy to offer “well-paid positions in the governing bodies” of state companies to EU residents allegedly in order to exert political influence on EU countries.

🧵Talking about russian actions it's an error to try to analyze what putin might be thinking, to find some plan behind his actions. Instead we should look at the TRENDS. But b4 that TL;DR: russian nuclear strikes against 🇺🇦 are a very real threat, require an action to prevent->
In last 8 years we could see 'experts' making the most ridiculous mistakes when trying to predict russia's actions from the standpoint of "what is benefitial for russia", "what is benefitial for putin", this, ofc, comes from the total lack of understanding of the subject->
Indeed, if russia was US it would be NOT BENEFITIAL to invade Ukraine. Surely the # of casualties suffered by russia even in the 1st weeks of invasion would make US retreat. But 🇷🇺isn't US. That's a fact that needs to be taken into account when, well, talking about russia :D->

Freunde der ##Ukraine, schaut auf den #Iran! So viel Mut und so viel Gewalt gegen einen Aufstand für Freiheit & Würde. Die Welt wird heller, wenn die Freiheit hier wie dort gewinnt, und finsterer, wenn sie verliert. Gegen die Allianz der Despoten die Allianz der Demokraten! /1
Wie gegenüber Russland braucht es auch eine Wende unserer Iranpolitik. Wandel durch Handel & Dialog ist auch hier gescheitert. Harte Sanktionen gegen das Regime, Solidarität mit der iranischen Freiheitsbewegung! /2 zeit.de/politik/auslan…
Hoffen wir, dass es diesmal gelingt und nicht Ströme von Blut kostet. Ich habe noch die Niederschlagung der "grünen Bewegung" von 2009 + das Schicksal der "Arabellion" vor Augen. Keine Diktatur lebt ewig, wenn die Unterdrückten ihre Furcht verlieren. #Iran

Wie #Putin-hörig kann man sein?
#Kretschmer: Ja!

Der #CDU-MP will zurück zu #Putin's Gas.

Unser Ziel muss es sein, nach dem Angriff auf die #Ukraine wieder Gas aus #Russland zu beziehen. Kretschmer will sich bewusst wieder in Putins Abhängigkeit geben.
n-tv.de/politik/Kretsc…
Gründe für den Gasmangel sieht #Kretschmer in den Sanktionen der #EU, obwohl diese Gaslieferungen nicht betreffen. Dass #Putin das Gas als Waffe einsetzt und es abdrehte, scheint ihm egal.

Auch wirkt es so, als interessiert ihn der Ausgang des Krieges nicht. Egal ob die
#Ukraine gewinnt, #Russland verliert, seine Schuld einsieht, oder nicht, #Kretschmer will zurück zum russischen Gas.

Entweder ist er absolut unfähig zu lernen, oder er ist ideologisch so verblendet, dass er so gar die Sicherheit unseres Landes dafür aufgibt.

This is America during the 1930s. 👇The Great Depression.

How did the US get out of this misery? Answer: WW2

The Europeans killed each other and destroyed their own rich and powerful countries.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

#EU #Russia #Ukraine ImageImageImageImage
The US played the arms dealer during WW2. Unaffected by the war, American cities turned on the factories full throttle.

By late 1943, the US was manufacturing more weapons than all its allies and enemies combined! ImageImageImageImage
The US cleverly waited for Russia to destroy half of Hitler’s army. Then American troops landed in Europe to fight the Nazis.

The D-day on June 4, 1944, turned into a mythology by Hollywood.

Unless you think ppl avoiding their military call-ups are tourists then #Russia's #PartialMobilization doesn't really change much with regard to the #visaban.
There are, however, ongoing issues to consider that the #EU & its member states should address promptly.
A🧵/1
The proposed '#visaban', which has now been implemented de facto by several #EU states (which border #Russia) was intended to stop Russian *tourists* from entering the Schengen zone. There are very good reasons for this - as I outlined here /2
And those reasons for the #visaban for *tourists* still stand:
1. To support #Ukraine & shorten the war
2. To bolster #EU states' security & resilience
3. To use our power to stand up for our democracies

Thread: 22 September 2022: Day 211 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: focuses on the announced #Russian "partial mobilisation" yesterday, doubts Moscow can raise 300,000 troops, and notes the "considerable political risk" to #Putin of trying to regenerate manpower for the war on #Ukraine in this way.

President Vladimir Putin announced that #Russia has lost 5973 in the war in #Ukraine.
Announcing a partial mobilisation in #Russia was expected following the battle of #Kharkiv, as predicted in this article 👇, instead of using depleted uranium, as the #US did when bombing over 300 sites during its invasion of #Iraq

It shows that #Russia is determined to enlarge its control, counter @NATO attacks and direct war in #Ukraine and not lose the war.
Using depleted uranium bombs is not excluded, depending on the level of #US-NATO weapons delivered in Ukraine.
