Ukraine is an EU candidate! How did we get here?

Since @EuromaidanPress was born on Euromaidan, a thread 🧵 about Ukraine's most recent history 👇
Ukraine was always part of Europe. Geographically, historically, linguistically.

After the USSR broke up, 🇺🇦 started looking west, though pro-🇷🇺 forces also rode to power on Soviet nostalgia. But even pro-🇷🇺 Prez Yanukovych was on track to sign 🇺🇦🇪🇺 Association Agreement...👇
Enter Putin.

“[His] great anxiety was that Ukraine could become economically & politically successful so Russians would eventually ask themselves ‘Why are our brothers doing so well, while our situation remains dire?’” as advisor to Merkel said.

His fears grew w/Arab Spring👇

At the #presidentielles2022 debate last night Marine Le Pen showed a print-out of an old tweet.

My team at @article7news have been looking into Rassamblement National officials' tweets over the last few years...

There's a lot in there she wouldn't want us to see 🧵
2/ Let's start with ones on Ukraine. Here's Jean-Michael Cadenas, calling #Euromaidan a coup - on 24 February, as Russian paratroopers were trying to seize Hostomel airport
3/ And here is Thierry Mariani, an MEP from the RN, with the same Kremlin line

"#Ukraine's army was undermined by the corruption of its cadres...in the March/April 2014 recall of reservists, 70 percent did not show up for the first session, 80 percent for the second, 90 percent for the third, and 95 percent for the fourth."

"In Oct/Nov 2017, 70% of conscripts did not show up for the recall campaign. This is not counting suicides & desertions (often over to the autonomists)...Young Ukrainians refused to fight in the Donbass & preferred emigration, which explains...partially the demographic deficit"
"The Ukrainian Ministry of Def turned to #NATO to help make its armed forces more 'attractive.' I was asked by NATO to participate in a program to restore the image of the Ukrainian armed forces. But this is a long-term process and the Ukrainians wanted to move quickly." #Ukraine

Nuland & Nundy hv PROTESTS in common!
2/3 This is the embarrassing LEAKED TAPES in which Ms Nuland is heard talking to US ambassador to Ukraine about who all should be part of the next Ukrainian govt….after usurping the democratically elected govt.
3/3 Ms Karuna Nundy found standing on the “left” side of every argument had said getting rid of Triple talaq is against the Freedom of speech. Watch her say that at time stamp 2:01 & 2:30>>>

QUELLA DI #FIRENZE NON È STATA UNA MANIFESTAZIONE PER LA PACE, MA DI SOSTEGNO A UNO STATO IN GUERRA
"Dite ai vostri politici di chiudere il cielo sopra l'#Ucraina agli aerei e ai razzi russi", ha enfatizzato il presidente #Zelensky dallo schermo in Piazza Santa Croce.⬇️
Una parte della piazza, durante la manifestazione, lo ha applaudito, forse senza rendersi conto che il divieto di sorvolo per gli aerei russi da parte della #NATO porterebbe subito a uno scontro militare e alla Terza Guerra Mondiale, con il conseguente olocausto nucleare.⬇️
Ecco gli effetti incoraggiati dalla propaganda mediatica che continua a fomentare le posizioni più irresponsabili.
Il centrosinistra guidato dal PD "con l'elmetto in testa" e CGIL, CISL e UIL hanno manifestato in sostegno a un governo, quello di Kiev, molto poco democratico.⬇️

Das erste Video mit Warnschüssen gegenüber unbewaffneten Demonstranten. Das Problem - wir hatten das bei einer Übung auch mal - hierbei:
Querschnittlich haben #Soldaten wenig nicht-letale Eskalationsmöglichkeiten, um "Störer" zu vertreiben. Hohes Gefahrpotential für zivile Opfer.
Trotzdem - oder gerade deswegen - sehe ich aber für #Russland immer noch kein Endgame. Ich bin skeptisch gegenüber dem Narrativ eines ukr. Partisanenkampfs, aber allein das Potential eines #Euromaidan 2.0 ggü einer russ. Besatzung. Wie sollen die damit umgehen?
Es bräuchte eine Besatzung in Größenordnung Afg/Irak (and look how that turned out) um ein #PuppetRegime zu stützen - für die #NATO ein absoluter Gewinn, die russischen Streitkräfte wären effektiv auf Jahre hinaus overstretched.

O passo de reconhecer as repúblicas populares de #Donetsk e #Lugansk nom é menor. Mas em absoluto significa que a #Rússia queira a desapariçom física da Ucránia, como algum comentador está já assegurar com superabundáncia de dramatismo. Vai mais um fio sobre a falsa guerra 🇺🇦-🇷🇺.
Em 2014, na sequência do estado de terror que seguiu ao golpe paramilitar da extrema-direita (#EuroMaidan) na Ucránia, várias regions (oblasti) do país proclamárom a sua independência. Tratava-se, fundamentalmente, de ficar fora do novo poder de Kiev e de se auto-proteger.
Convém lembrar que na maioria dessas regions, no leste do país, vive umha maioria russa (ou minorias muito significativas) que se converteu no principal alvo de ataques do novo poder.

❗️Blitzkrieg or Minor Incursion: The debate has shifted from IF to HOW #Russia will invade #Ukraine: “one massive nationwide attack; a series of bites that dismantle the country, piece by piece; or a cobra-like squeeze,” ⁦@SangerNYTnytimes.com/2022/02/20/us/…
🚨‼️Pentagon & US intel officials describe the “worst-case scenario” they now believe is likely in #Kyiv, #Ukraine:
1/ Terror: 1-2 weeks of constant rocket attacks
2/ Street fighting
3/ Hunt: for anyone who supported the democratically elected govt of Zelensky (ie, kill lists)
❗️The “hunt” (presumably the kill lists reported by @ak_mack) is to prevent mass protests in #Kyiv, a la #Euromaidan 8 yrs ago. “Putin remembers… he is determined not to let street protesters interfere with his strategy to control the country, and the region, for a second time.”

Angesichts des 🇺🇦/🇷🇺-Konflikts läuft in der deutschen Debatte vieles schief. Einige der gängigsten ⁉️ Argumente der selbsternannten #Putin- & Russland-Versteher aus Politik & Medien sollen im Folgenden analysiert & entkräftet werden. Ein #SiPo-Thread 🧵
⁉️“Im Gespräch bleiben”
Strohmann-Argument: Keine westliche Regierung hat erklärt, nicht mit 🇷🇺 sprechen zu wollen. Im Gegenteil: Der #NATO-🇷🇺 Rat hat sich - nach zeitweiser Aussetzung infolge der völkerrechtswidrigen Krim-Annexion (2014) - seit 2016 elf Mal getroffen. 2/25
Hinzu kommen u.a. #NormandieFormat, #MinskerAbkommen & zahlreiche bilaterale Treffen mit 🇷🇺.

Um #Putin nach der einseitigen Eskalation (Truppenaufmarsch von 100.000 🇷🇺 Soldaten an 🇺🇦 Grenze) zurück an den Verhandlungstisch zu bringen, braucht es aber eine Kombination aus 3/25

Democratic Revolution or Coup D'état ?

The Ukrainian nationalist-fascist salute
"Glory to Ukraine" became a slogan of the
Euro-maidan protesters in their fight against the Yanukovych government:

Het plan, uit de NAVO-DiepStaat, is hoogstwaarschijnlijk (65%) als volgt:
Olkraïne begint een bombardement met een groot aantal Kanonnen en Raketten op de Donbas provincies die het regime in Kiev niet erkennen.
Donbas vraagt steun aan Rusland.
Rusland reageert en geeft aan

Vor 8 Jahren: Beginn der "Revolution der Würde" in Kyiv. Aus einer kleinen Kundgebung für das Assoziationsabkommen mit der EU wurde ein millionenfacher Protest gegen das autoritäre + korrupte Yanukovych-Regime. Das Leitmotiv - für Demokratie, für Europa! - gilt immer noch. /1
Es ist auch eine Verpflichtung für die EU, die #Ukraine auf ihrem schwierigen Weg zu einer europäischen Demokratie zu unterstützen - auch gegen den anhaltenden unerklärten Krieg, den #Putin gegen sie führt. /2
Der Kreml hat sich mit der ukrainischen Unabhängigkeit nicht abgefunden. Eine demokratische, moderne, wirtschaftlich erfolgreiche #Ukraine ist eine Gefahr für das System Putin. Für die EU wäre sie ein Glücksfall. /3

Revealing Schemes regards conspiracy theories as a form of propaganda and asks why regimes promote them. Moving beyond the conventional wisdom about paranoid or tyrannical personal styles, it examines how conspiracy claims emerge from the dynamics of (post-Soviet) politics.
In a nutshell, I argue that conspiracy claims stem from: 1) political competition, which draws incumbents into fray; 2) destabilizing events, which must be publicly accounted for; and 3) geopolitics, which influences what is worth commenting on.

Oh look, someone is trying to sell a cryptocurrency account (@wag_crypto, permanent ID 327020861) that has a bunch of fake followers. The ones in the circled portion are part of a network we haven't previously encountered.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We looked at the accounts followed by a sample of 200 of @wag_crypto's bogus followers. As it turns out, there are 22 accounts they all follow. One is @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN, and 12 of the others are dormant bots with tens of thousands of fake followers that also follow @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN.
We found 77064 accounts that we believe to be part of the network. All were created prior to 2014, follow far more accounts than they are followed by (including @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN), and have liked at most 4 tweets (most have liked none).

Bad weather in the United States and disease in China are threatening food shortages globally and massive inflation. Our national security and stability is at stake over the next few years.
One of the biggest reasons inflation has remained so low over the past half decade is record growing seasons in the United States and Russia for #corn #wheat and #soybeans However this year is the worst season on record as cold, rainy weather delayed #plant19 by several weeks.
Planting progress for all three crops was beyond dismal this year. In fact, it was the slowest planting progress ever on record and many farmers simply chose to skip this year.
