Pictures from the book “Drawings from the #GULAG” by Danzig Baldaev, a retired Soviet prison guard. Through his eyes, we get to see some of the brutal acts of Soviet genocide performed on those imprisoned. How can anyone want to glorify Stalin? ImageImageImageImage

Do #UOT EXHIBITIONS really make a difference?🧵

The annoyance of petty bourgeois Ugandans regarding #KampalaPotholeExhibition & #UgandaHealthExhibition, as curated by our brilliant social justice warriors @SpireJim & @GodwinTOKO, has amused me more than it should probably have. Image
At @mylegalbrain, we did more than put on an exhibit around Kampala’s gargantuan potholes & open sewers 3 years ago.

We SUED @KCCAUG & @GovUganda for this blatant violation of duty that has caused widespread devastation, including death and disability to hapless urban dwellers.
B4 #KampalaPotholeExhibition, we’d sued The Powers That Be & won a landmark ruling for a hazard-free road experience in Kampala City.

COURT ORDER—There shouldn’t be any potholes, open sewers & trading/dwelling places cut off by floods in the capital city.…

Non sarei qui se l'#ArmataRossa non avesse liberato #Auschwitz. Erano soldati dell'intera Unione Sovietica, #Ucraina compresa. Lo storico @AngelodOrsi lo sa di certo. Ma ritiene solo la #Russia erede legittima dei "russi" liberatori. Non ci siamo 🧵
La "Grande guerra patriottica" è l'unica narrazione sovietica sopravvissuta. Perché è mito nazionalista e imperialista, oggi ulteriormente centrato sulla Russia. Perché serve a cancellare una precisa colpa di #Stalin. Il patto con Hitler. 1
Tutto quello che è successo prima dell'attacco della Germania all'URSS oggi è censurato in Russia. Ma la sofferenza e l'eroismo sovietici nel respingere l'invasione sono stati così mostruosi perché Stalin non era preparato all'attacco dell'alleato. 2

In this THREAD you'll see video of agents provocateur smashing windows, holding the Columbus Doors open with a pole, and PUSHING protestors inside

But what happened AFTER #January6th is even more shocking. 1/n…
If not for @elonmusk you would not know this.


The two men seen violently assaulting the Capitol on #January6th in the video above are but two of ONE HUNDRED TWENTY individuals at the forefront of the violence.

Yeah, we found more.


There were THOUSANDS of people in and around the Capitol on #January6th.

What makes these guys so special?

What makes these 120+ #insurrectionist unique is that the FBI has chosen not to include their images among the others being sought on the #J6 "Most Wanted" list

A short 🇪🇪 history 🧵Meet Otto Tief. He was the prime minister of 🇪🇪 for 5 days in September 1944, just between the retreat of German occupation forces and the onslaught of the Red Army. With his 5-day government Tief re-established Estonian independence. 1/4 Image
In a few days Tief’s efforts were undone by the invading Red Army however his actions and his 5-day government proved indispensable for the de jure continuity of the Republic of Estonia. 2/4
This is why on September 22 Estonia celebrates the Resistance Fighting Day, also known as the Otto Tief Government Day. 3/4

#Thread: The Bloody History of #Communism - Chapter 1: #USSR

Communism is a political system in which the state owns the economy & aims to treat everyone equally.

But the last 100 years have proved it to be a nightmare which brought only bloodshed, torture & fear.

From Marx to Lenin, Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot, the materialist philosophy of #Communism transformed these humans into theorists of violence and masters of cruelty.

With the emergence of the USSR as the world's first communist state...

...,the slow poison of communism’s association with the #Soviet economic model and #Marxism#Leninism started to spread throughout the world.

The philosophical aspects of #Communism have always been used to defend it.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

The Hon Minister Mr Singh, #IndianArmedForces, is a special guest at #VictoryDayParade.

Vamos lá. Manuela d'Ávila é do Partido Comunista do Brasil, cúmplice moral dos regimes que exterminaram mais de 100 milhões de pessoas no século XX. (A metade era de mulheres? Provavelmente.) Vejamos os desenhos de Dant︠s︡ik Sergeevich Baldaev, inspetor do Gulag soviético.
Baldaev, além de inspetor do Gulag (sistema de campos de concentração comunistas), era desenhista. Como as câmeras fotográficas eram proibidas, ao retornar para casa, registrava o que havia visto. Nesta imagem, vemos administradores de um campo selecionando escravas sexuais.
Neste outro desenho, Dant︠s︡ik Baldaev registrou o exame médico, num campo de trabalhos forçados da URSS, de mulheres que, de tanto carregar objetos demasiado pesados, haviam ficado com os úteros caídos para fora da vagina.

#OTD in 1940, the #USSR began the third wave of deportations from occupied eastern #Poland. This deportation targeted refugees who had escaped from western to eastern Poland following the German invasion. #WWII
In December 1939, the #USSR and #Germany had agreed to repatriate refugees from their respective occupied territories. Those in the Soviet zone who wished to return to the German zone were required to register with the German authorities and vice versa. #WWII
164,000 people applied to leave the Soviet zone, but Germany only accepted 66,000. The #NKVD then ordered the deportation of refugees who applied to return to #Germany but were not accepted by the German authorities. #WWII
