Some of you have wondered, why an earth would Russia destroy its own infra #nordstream. The question itself is the answer: all eye balls on the #gaspipe and national security > the attention is drawn to something else than Ukraine. Besides: (1/x) 🧵
- If a country is willing to kill it's own citizens the way #Russia does, why infra would be some special exception? (2/x)
- If #Putin is ok with using terrorist attacks against Russia's own citizens, why infra would be such an impossible idea? Remember how he rose to power? By blowing up apartment buildings and claiming it was a terrorist attack.(3/x)

🧵A few things to keep in mind during the euphoria of overwhelmingly good news in Ukraine. #Perspectives
1: #UAF warriors & civilian support staff are undertaking enormous risk to push this offensive through. I am reminded of the 1448 US soldiers killed on their last day in Vietnam. War is cruel. Many more lives will be ended or changed forever before there is 🇺🇦 victory and peace.
2: This victory is not unexpected. Anyone paying close attention would surmise that 🇷🇺 forces & proxies would eventually collapse. I am reminded of @TrentTelenko @CraigM_Regan @KofmanMichael & others whose analysis predicted 🇷🇺 culmination & collapse by end of summer.

Glöm inte bort att en rysk nationalsport är ”#maskirovka”, en maskerad, något som drar till sig uppmärksamhet men som inte huvudmålet.

Det ryska anfallskriget mot Ukraina har beskrivits som ett misslyckande. Det pekas på långa fordonskolonner som står stilla, nedskjutna ryska stridsflygplan och ”eliminering” av ryska generaler.

Men det finns inga skäl att andas ut som @OAJonsson påpekat flera gånger.
1. Rysk krigskonst har påtagliga österländska inslag. Sun Zu:s ande svävar över officershögskolorna. Beakta särskilt strategemet: ”När du är stark, framstå som svag”. Vi applicerar vår rationalitet på det vi ser och drar slutsatser. Det kan vara precis tvärtom.

As of now: still unsure what has really happened in eastern Ukraine beyond usual skirmishing. Reports of 'imminent attacks' as yet not launched. Germans say they are in NATO but act as de facto Russian vassals. There comes a point where this drags on ... and on ... but then ...
The Germans claim to be a core NATO ally but in practice behave as a Russian vassal state … this is nothing short of embarrassing … what is “Cringe” in German?…
Resistance to Russian advances will come from Baltic (Poles & Baltic States) & Black (Turks) seas. The Russian ambition is Belarus & Ukraine, so north and south defensive flanks become concerns … why I mention Russia’s Kaliningrad enclave between Poland & the Baltics so often. Image

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov discussing talks and a way forward should be grasped by all sensible people who want to settle the Ukraine issue & who realise the Ukrainians & Russians are much better off as neighbours with security agreements than combatants in a war Image
That both of Lavrov and Putin would do this publicly - and release this video - is a (hopeful) sign that the Russians will negotiate a settlement. News of German and Polish delegations going to Moscow are to be welcomed. A war would be a disaster.

This by @andrewmichta on Russia & Ukraine is a view somewhat contrary to my own but, like me, you should read everything by Andrew, anyway, as the people making policy certainly are (and I suspect so is the Kremlin an avid reader of Andrew).…
