Tout au long du cheminement démocratique de la réforme des #retraites nous avons assisté, certains disent à une successions de malentendus mais il s'agissait bien d'un incroyable bal des faux culs.
- Une concertation qui a eu lieu depuis 2017 sinon plus dans:
- Un pays rétrograde qui n'a toujours pas adopté une démocratie de compromis et qui pratique encore, comme des Gaulois agressifs, l'affrontement, ou le fantasme de guerre civile.
- Une démocratie pervertie par ses 2 #Extremes, l'un qui pratique sa "Confictualisation" Trotskyste,
- L'autre qui agite tout cela en sous-main en attendant le moment propice pour prendre les rennes du pouvoir.
- Les #medias qui ne remplissent plus leur rôle pédagogique et qui n'ont pas développé les détails du projet
- Les syndicats qui se comportent comme des partis politiques

#Xi’s refusal to explicitly align #China with #Russia in #Putin’s envisioned geopolitical conflict with the West is a notable departure from China’s declared “no limits partnership” with Russia preceding the start of the Russian invasion of #Ukraine.
2/ #Xi’s rhetoric suggests that he is not inclined to fully give #Russia the economic and political support that Russia needs to reverse setbacks in #Ukraine.
3/ #Putin and #Xi offered somewhat similar visions for increased Chinese-Russian economic partnership, and it is likely that the two will sign bilateral trade and economic agreements during Xi’s visit, some of which will likely aim to facilitate schemes for sanctions evasion.

The information from the #Kremlin's resources that Vladimir #Putin visited Crimea and #Mariupol is NOT true. In #Crimea, it was the double of the president with a short visit and solely for the sake of a video photo session.
#Putin himself was not even around, so the "visit" came out somewhat crumpled and indistinct. Without the presence of the president in the immediate vicinity, the double is forbidden to have meaningful conversations and hold long meetings, fearing...
embarrassment or other "reservations" of the double. The same applies to the visit to #Mariupol. The double was filmed in the material, did not talk much and did not stay anywhere for a long time. The "spontaneous" rides of "#Putin" around Mariupol at the steering wheel,...

2/ #Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova reiterated on March 18 that the #Kremlin has not abandoned its maximalist goals in #Ukraine.
3/ Russian President Vladimir #Putin continued his campaign against anti-war dissent and the misappropriation of military assets within #Russia.

The #Russian_Federation is experiencing a shortage of qualified personnel in the military-industrial complex, and enterprises have significantly lowered the criteria for recruiting new employees, — the Institute for the Study of War (#ISW)

#Putin spoke about #Russia's problems
in this area during a recent visit to the aircraft factory in #Ulan_Ude. He also reported that the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the #Russian_Federation had prepared a list of unspecified specialties for deferment from military service, which may indicate that the #Kremlin
prefers the use of skilled workers in the production of #Russian weapons rather than qualifications of soldiers are fighting in the #Russian army.

Yesterday, the #Kremlin information resources showed a meeting of two "absolutely healthy" people: #Russian President Vladimir #Putin and the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan #Kadyrov. The meeting was supposed to demonstrate...
the excellent health of the participants and their "strong handshake". It didn't work out very well. Given urgent therapy, #Putin does not feel well. Recently, the pain in his stomach has intensified again. It is not always possible to stop it completely.
In the footage of the meeting with the head of Chechnya, #Putin, sitting in an armchair, twisted from pain for a moment and convulsively grabbed the table with his hand. Note that this is on the official #Kremlin recording, where the best and most successful shots are used.

#Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova claimed on March 12 that @TheStudyofWar's March 11 report about her comments acknowledging #Kremlin infighting is false and an “informational attack.” 🧵(1/7)
2/ ISW used accounts from Russian media sources as well as a Russian milblogger (who claimed to be in attendance) to report on #Zakharova’s comments in an altercation with information space entrepreneur Igor Ashmanov during a panel discussion in #Moscow.
3/ A milblogger who attended the event quoted Zakharova as saying that the #Kremlin cannot copy the Stalinist approach of establishing a modern equivalent to the Soviet Information Bureau to centrally control the RU info space due to infighting among unspecified Kremlin “elites.”

The conflict between the #Russian Ministry of Defense and #Wagner shows that different parties in #Putin’s inner circle are competing with one another in potentially zero-sum games that do not further Putin’s overall objectives. (1/4)
2/ The #Russian MoD is currently prioritizing eliminating #Wagner on the battlefields in #Bakhmut, which is likely slowing down the rate of advance in the area.
3/ #Prigozhin saw #Bakhmut as an opportunity to gain leverage on the #Russian MoD and likely in the #Kremlin in pursuit of his own commercial and political aspirations.

March 12 (UPI) -- Maria Zakharova, a spokesperson for #Russia's Foreign Ministry, has hit back after analysts asserted she had confirmed Kremlin infighting. via @UPI
2/ "[ISW] had said in its analysis that Zakharova 'confirmed that there is infighting in the Kremlin inner circle, that the Kremlin has ceded centralized control over the Russian information space, and that Russian President Vladimir #Putin apparently cannot readily fix it.'"
3/ "'Zakharova's statement is noteworthy and supports several of ISW's longstanding assessments about deteriorating #Kremlin regime and information space control dynamics,'" the analysis reads."

The #Kremlin’s increasing public interactions on the topic of volunteer recruitment campaigns throughout #Russia and occupied #Ukraine indicate #Putin is embracing this effort—likely to avoid declaring mobilization.
2/ Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry #Peskov reported that Russian President Vladimir #Putin met with #Zaporizhia Oblast Occupation Head Yevgeny Balitskyi on March 7 to discuss the security and legal status of the Sudoplatov volunteer battalion among other topics.
3/ The #Kremlin barely acknowledged similar volunteer recruitment movements over the summer of 2022, and #Putin’s direct recognition of problems with the volunteer recruitment campaign is likely an attempt to incentivize more #Russians to enlist.

Merci de l'énoncer @MurielDomenach 🙏

Et c'est aussi pour cela que l'ensemble des tactiques de désinformation/propagande mise en place par le #Kremlin peuvent être analysés à travers des outils déjà pensés par les féministes dans les années 90s.
La #StratégieDeLagresseur est un modèle de comportement théorisé par MF Casalis @Violsfemmesinfo:
-isoler victimes & soutiens
-discréditer victimes & soutiens
-inverser culpabilité (agresseur devient "vraie victime")
-instaurer la terreur
-assurer impunité (opinion/justice)
Marrant comment beaucoup n'arrivent pas à dépasser le message sur le "viol comme arme de guerre", alors que ce qui est dit par "culture géopolitique du viol" est la "culture de l'impunité" en matière de violences à échelle internationale, au sens large....

🇺🇦 Like me you've probably seen these pictures of #Marinka in #Ukraine.

What used to be a lively city has now been decimated, turned to dust and requires talking in past tense.

But where do they come from? Who took them? 👇
First hint is the watermark in the bottom right-hand corner: a #Telegram link and the name of a group.

Танкисты ЮВО

This translates to "Tankers of the Southern Military District" (=Южный Военный Округ)
Considering that the images were mostly shared on Twitter by Ukrainian or "Western" journalists, one thing I found odd was that the images were taken by Russians 🇷🇺 because:

1) They use Russian Cyrillic and not the Ukrainian variant
2) The tankers of the ЮВО are Russian

Russian officials released limited info about the March 2 incursion in #Bryansk Oblast but failed to provide clarity about what actually transpired. #Putin did not address the reported incident in a meeting with the Russian Security Council, per a readout.
2/ The head of the Russian Volunteer Corps, which claimed responsibility for the incursion, claimed on March 3 that Ukrainian officials greenlit the incursion.
3/ The #Russian Investigative Committee did not corroborate the Volunteer Corps’ claim, instead announcing that it has initiated an investigation into the actions of “Ukrainian saboteurs.”

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, the #Kremlin info resources reported both about the infiltration and excesses of a "Ukrainian" recon team in the Bryansk region and about the excellent awareness of #Russian President #Putin about what was happening.
The president promptly received reports from Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov, National Guard Director Viktor Zolotov, and Governor of the Bryansk Region Alexander Bogomaz.
But the #Kremlin resources did not note that all the reports contained different, sometimes contradictory information, which did not contribute to the president's desire to figure out what was actually happening.

#BREAKING ‼️ Official statement from FSB about the border district of Klimovsk in the Bryansk region. #UkraineWar #Ukrainian #Ukraine️ #RussiaisATerroistState #RussiaIsCollapsing #RussiaInvadedUkraine
FSB and accompanying forces of the Russian Ministry of Defense are taking actions aimed at eliminating armed Ukrainian nationalists who have violated the state border.
Deputy Chairman of the Russian State Duma, Delyagin:

The only normal reaction to taking hostages in the Bryansk region is the immediate elimination of @ZelenskyyUa and Zaluzhny (who had announced almost a year ago missile attacks on Ukraine's decision-making centers).

1. Right now, on all Internet resources, you can see news about “Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups”, which allegedly killed people, injured children, took hostages, "but, at the same time, hastily left, and so on.⬇️
