What we're witnessing in Ukraine during the last 9 months isn't a new thing: in fact, Russians have been trying to destroy Ukrainians for centuries.
We must learn from history for the sake of our future.

1⃣What is the Holodomor?

Holodomor literally means "murder by hunger". Also known as the terrorist famine caused by the USSR.
Ukrainians of the XX century experienced famine three times - in 1921-1923, 1932-1933 and 1946-1947.
The Holodomor of 1932-1933 became the largest genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
By the end of 1933, according to various sources, at least 4.5 million Ukrainians slowly died of starvation.
Every year, Ukraine honors their memory on the last Saturday of November.

(1.Just dark ages stuff in #Ireland.A Seanad motion to enshrine #neutrality in constitution(would then take a referendum).Completely driven by #domestic politics, populist ideology&myths that persist with no heed for genuine national #security interests.…
(2.Claim that"unique voice for peace and reconciliation throughout the world"is just empty self-praise,naval gazing.Nobody has any evidence for this,anywhere,show me evidence before making claim!Ireland*is known*as free-rider that should be doing for its own & #European security!
(3.All 5 Nordic countries will be NATO members soon. 4 of them have far stronger track record in peace diplomacy&international development than Ireland. What about developing world states carrying some of largest burdens for UN #peacekeeping these days? #Ireland not"unique"here.

What do 🇨🇴Colombia, 🇬🇷Greece, and 🇬🇧the United Kingdom have in common?
They’re 3 of 9 countries with low taxes you’d never expect.
Let’s help you go where you’re treated best:….
#lowtax #taxfree #WealthManagement
🇬🇧In the #UK, if your taxable income is over £150,000, you’ll have to pay 45% income tax.

But your foreign-sourced income may be tax-exempt if you are a non-domiciled resident in the UK. You will have remittance of paying taxes during the first 15 years (soon will be 5)
🇮🇪#Ireland's tax system is based on residence, so there is no tax on worldwide income for nonresidents (if you decide you don’t want to live in Ireland during your residence). However, getting permanent residence in Ireland means you will be taxed on Irish-sourced income

Hundreds gather in East Wall Dublin to protest after the government snuck in 500 MALE ONLY migrants in the dead of the night

Officials first told their constituents the migrants would be Ukrainian refugees before sneaking in 500 MENA & African male migrants
In response to the protests, Sinn Féin's Declan Kearney released a statement condemning the protesters.

Declan added that he is ‘committed to ensuring the agenda’ of making Ireland a multiethnic society.
In recent years, Ireland saw an increase in anti-social behavior and crime including rape, theft, gang violence and murder, something that is become too common in the West.

The Irish blame this on the increase of migrants.

1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here:… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

1: It's been a long time since I blogged about anything, but I feel like writing one about #Israel and #Ireland. Some loosely connected thoughts that need thinking and development (using Twitter as my notepad here):
2: Despite challenging political relationship, so much obvious potential for synergy and development between the two countries. Both are ambitious small countries that leverage their diaspora populations well.
3: Convergence of interest in tech. Both can be good incubators for startups and gateways to larger markets. Both seek to punch about their weight internationally and both succeed to good degrees.

Ireland, like almost all the other other interveners, invokes both its right to intervene pursuant to art 63 of the ICJ Statute as well as the nature of the obligations found in the Genocide Convention to justify its intervention. 2/ Image
Ireland (only) invokes two provisions of the Convention as those it seeks to give its construction on: art I (prevention and punishment of genocide) and art IX (compromissory clause). 3/

Thread: 14 September 2022: Day 203 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update notes the confirmation that #Russia is using #Iran's Shahed-136 drones, which have a range of 1,500 miles and were used in the attack on the MT MERCER STREET merchant tanker on 3 July 2021. Seems Moscow is using them for tactical strikes, not long-range.
Talk in #Georgia of opening a second front while #Russia is tied down in #Ukraine to liberate the occupied areas in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

If you want to challenge for Russian-protected territories, now is the moment. (See also: #Azerbaijan.)
