Day 433 is upon us.
The 433rd day of #Russia's 3-4 plan to take #Kyiv and all of #Ukraine within 10 days.
#EATP Everything According To Plan!

Tuesday's news will appear in this thread, updated in real time; yesterday's news can be found here:

First incredibly sad news that two volunteers from #Canada have been killed at the front.

Kyle Porter, 27, of Calgary, + 21yo Cole Zelenco of Ontario were both serving with Ukraine's International Legion.

They gave their lives for freedom. RIP…
Here's the British daily intel update (I attached the document today!)

Seems London is playing catch-up with last week's news I brought you at the time.

What is #Psychopathy? And is Vladimir Putin a #Psychopath?

A thread 🧵 based on what we know about his personality and history, and the Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience of the condition

/1 Image
People describe #Putin as a bully, a mafia boss, a barbaric war criminal, or simply as evil.

All of these views are correct, but Psychopathy is in many ways an attempt at a scientific understanding of evil

If we understand the personality traits and behaviours of psychopaths, we can begin to understand the extent to which a person may be Psychopathic (or not).

As psychopathy exists on a spectrum, perhaps a better question is *how psychopathic* is Putin?

I've made screens with these informations about #Russia. And why #PutinWarCriminal policy caused this.
Additional informations #Pedoputin #RussiaIsATerroristState
From report conducted by E.V. Tiurukanova and the Institute for Urban Economics for the UN/IOM Working Group on Trafficking in Human Beings #Moscow - 2006.
Why #Pedoputin hasn't introduced serious steps to fight with this? Rhetorical question. #Russia

Die Entschuldigungen „Ich habe mich in #Putin geirrt!“ (#Schwesig) oder wer im Zusammenhang mit der Einschätzung Putins fehlerfrei ist, der werfe den ersten Stein (#Stegner), sind billig & falsch!
Der Krieg in der #Ukraine ist nur ein Punkt in einer langen Liste!

Ein Thread!
Der Krieg in der #Ukraine mag vielleicht überraschend sein – für @ZelenskyyUa allerdings nicht – aber dass Putin ein Despot ist liegt schon seit über 20 Jahren auf dem Tisch. Wer anderes erzählt belügt sich selbst bzw. wollte es einfach nicht wissen.
Denn Opfer, Kriege und Angriffe Putins gibt es viele. Was der Preis dafür sein kann #Putin zu kritisieren, erzählt niemand hinter vorgehaltener Hand, jeder weiß das. Eine Chronologie!

Den Start macht von 1999 bis 2009 der zweite #Tschetschenienkrieg.

Nelle ultime due settimane sono state adottate sanzioni contro la cerchia di #Putin. In Occidente si pensa che così facendo, potremmo assistere ad un regime change a #Mosca per mano degli alti ranghi. Perché questo potrebbe non succedere mai? (1/8)🧵
1) Innanzitutto è necessario definire a quale gruppo di fedelissimi ci si riferisce. Ad oggi, gli #oligarchi (intesi come “businessmen”) sono stati soppiantati dall’establishment nell’ambito della sicurezza, i cosiddetti #siloviki.
Se Putin riesce a controllare i siloviki, non dovrà poi preoccuparsi così tanto degli uomini d’affari. Questo non significa che figure come Roman #Abramovič non contino niente, ma che è più sensato far pressione più sui siloviki che su un Oleg #Deripaska.

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that #Russia was responsible for the 2006 killing of ex-KGB officer Alexander #Litvinenko, poisoned in London with Polonium 210.…

Britain has named and charged a third Russian military intelligence officer over the Salisbury spy poisonings, in a significant development that will enrage Russia.…
Russian interference threatens British democracy. Despite this, the Uk government has refused to take the unequivocal recommendations of parliament's own Intelligence and Security Committee that it says are essential to protect our national security.

Breaking: #Ukraine has brought an inter-state case in the European Court of Human Rights against #Russia over its covert assassination programme - #Litvinenko, #Skripal, @navalny. Some 20+ victims on the list including Anna Politkovskaya & Boris Nemtsov…
Other states where assassinations have taken place (UK, Germany, Bulgaria) can join Ukraine's action as third parties. Several are likely to do so, I'm told. The big question is whether the British foreign secretary Dominic Raab will support the @ECHR_CEDH case
Boris Johnson's government has yet to take action against the oligarchs and Kremlin functionaries who feature on the @navalny list. MPs have called in the House of Commons for sanctions against Roman #Abramovich and Alisher #Usmanov. Will Raab step up?…

Wow. @BorisJohnson in today’s #PMQs called @Keir_Starmer ‘s question about why Johnson sat on the #RussiaReport for so long, when it stated Russia was such an immediate threat, ‘absurd’.


Mike drop: when @BorisJohnson tries to avoid answering #RussiaReport questioning by saying @Keir_Starmer ’sat on his hands’ re Russia, Starmers replies that he was one of those involved in ‘prosecuting’ Russia in the #Litvinenko case.
“I spent 5yrs as Director of Public Prosecutions” says @Keir_Starmer (after @BorisJohnson suggests Starmer could have done more -in opposition-re Russia) “working on live operations with security services, so I’m not going to take lectures from this PM about national security’

Ik heb de afgelopen dagen geprobeerd (met beperking dat ik in Warschau zit & nul connecties heb bij Tsjechische geheime diensten) dit bizarre verhaal uit te zoeken: een Russische spion zou naar Praag zijn gereisd om de burgemeester te vergiftigen🧵
Gerenommeerd weekblad @RESPEKT_CZ meldde zondag dat een Rus 3wkn geleden naar Tsjechië kwam met diplomatiek paspoort & *ricine* en 't gemunt had op 2 lokale politici. Vier alinea's zonder verheldering hoe plot zou zijn voorkomen en waar verdachte nu is…
Aanname in het nieuwsbericht was dat burgemeester Zdeněk Hřib zich toorn van Moskou op de hals haalde door recent het plein voor de Russische ambassade te hernoemen naar de vermoorde Boris Nemtsov (waarna de ambassade de brievenbus verplaatste)…

UK’s @AmbassadorAllen:

#Novichok is not a weapon that can be manufactured by non-state actors… #Russia has provided no credible explanation… Therefore, we have no alternative but to conclude that the #Russian state was responsible [for a chemical weapons attack on my country].
This was an attack on #UK soil… #Russia is failing to comply with the conditions of the Chemical Weapons Convention…

Let us turn to the part of the CWC that #Russia is not talking about - Russia did not declare #Novichok & is therefore in serious breach of the CWC.
This was a reckless act… #Russia officials have repeatedly threatened those they consider traitors, before & after March 4 attack.

Russia has a history of political assassinations, interfering in other countries & a total disregard for civilian life.

The best way to gauge the Kremlin’s complicity is to consider that its involvement is directly proportionate to the number of conspiracy theories being floated by #Russia’s state media (e.g. #MH17). With respect to #Skripal, numerous “alternative story plots” are already in play.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.1:
“Accidental exposure”
Porton Down, where the Brits were experimenting with the same types of nerve agents, is located next door to where Skripal and his daughter were found.
