Welcome along to the daily thread covering #Russia's invasion and war on #Ukraine.

The new week starts with Day 271 of the illegal conflict.

For a recap on yesterday's news (though it was quieter) click here:

The daily update from Britain's Ministry of Defence concentrates on what's happening in east #Ukraine, particularly #Svatove.

I must point out we think more of #Russia''s troops are arriving from #Kherson to bolster an aggressive push rather than just defensive.
#Russia:s estimated daily losses remain steady.

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

Day 119 📌 Russian occupational authorities proposed introducing the death penalty, the mayor of occupied Melitopol said. BTW, he was abducted at the beginning of the war but later exchanged. More on the situation in Ukraine is in today's brief: sharethetruths.org/2022/06/22/war… Image
As a result of the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 592 🇺🇦 children have been injured, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on June 22. The figures are expected to be higher since they do not include casualties in areas where hostilities are ongoing 😔
Decisive battles are taking place on the territory of the #Sievierodonetsk and #Lysychansk agglomerations, and the 🇷🇺 leadership demands that its troops reach the administrative borders of the #Luhansk region by June 26, – says Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar.

#Syria President Bashar al-Assad visited #Iran for the first time in 3 years. By sending the Air Force following the request of the gov in #Damascus, #Russia challenged the #US and NATO and defeated, along with Iran, their objective to create a fail-state in Syria.

OPEC tells the #EU it's not possible to replace potential #Russian oil supply loss, as per #Ukraine'spresident request to all European state leaders.

The #EU Commission is drafting proposals for an oil embargo on #Russia, the foreign ministers of #Ireland, #Lithuania and the #Netherlands said at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, although there was no agreement to ban #Russian crude.
#Australia, #Canada and the #US, who are less reliant on Russian supply than Europe, have already banned Russian oil purchases. EU countries are split, given their higher dependency and the potential for the move to push up already high energy prices in #Europe.

Entering the summit of 🇪🇺 defence ministers in Brussels, 🇩🇪German Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht says the EU's new rapid military deployment capability will be the "military heart" of the new European security policy.

It's a "clear signal" to 🇷🇺Russia, she says.
🇫🇮Finland's Defence Minister Antti Kaikkonen says the #UkraineWar means there must be "more cooperation" in 🇪🇺EU defence, and "more steps forward".

"I hope we get results today, and later this week."

#Finland is not in #NATO but has recently been participating in NATO summits.
The defence minister of 🇸🇪#Sweden, also not in #NATO but recently in meetings, sounds same tone on the need for 🇪🇺EU to coordinate its military response.

He also echoes other ministers today on #Mariupol: "What Putin and the Russian government are doing is a repeated #WarCrime"

There a few museums about language(s), but language-themed garends are rare. Here is a project from #Luxembourg that picks up this nice idea.
However, the symbolism in the design also creates some unfortunate implications (as far as I can tell from the description):
🧵
1) 'Languages are separable and countable'. This notion is deeply rooted in everyday linguistic thought. The garden has exactly 25 steles for 25 languages, each one monolithic representations. They don't touch, overlap, intersect. A rather sterile view on multilingualism.
2) 'Multilingualism is official multilingualism'. The garden represents the 24 official EU languages plus Luxembourgish. The numerous other languages used by and significant for thousands of people in Europe are not part of the main pattern in the design.

This might come as a surprise on the diplomatic front: #Luxembourg Prime Minister @Xavier_Bettel (close friend of Macron’s) just spoke to Putin.
Putin is not excluding a meeting with Zelensky. From the #Luxembourg PM’s spokesperson after the call:

“Putin says negotiations need to advance further before a meeting with Zelensky is possible. Putin says they are not there yet, without however excluding this path entirely."
More from the Luxembourg PM @Xavier_Bettel’s office:

“European leaders wanted to make sure Putin would continue talking with them. PM Bettel offered to help out and was encouraged to talk to Putin."

Bettel is a close friend of Emmanuel Macron and Charles Michel.

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

Why does the state never win in claims under the #EnergyCharterTreaty and how is #Luxembourg 🇱🇺connected to some of these claims?
The example of Abengoa Spain can give an insight in these questions:
Spain is the most sued country under the Energy Charter Treaty: it accumulates 50 lawsuits and a claimed amount of more than 10 billion euros. The solution is very simple: to avoid this waste of public money, the exit from the Treaty must be initiated.
In a claim under the #EnergyCharterTreaty it can never be said that "the State has won": the defence costs alone amount to millions of euros. As in the case of Abengoa Spain, Spain will have to pay 6.7 million taxpayers money only in process costs.
