Nederland heeft daar alles mee te maken, alleen al omdat de opvang van 64.000 vluchtelingen “het eigen volk” ook raken en die naar huis kunnen en willen zodra die oorlog voorbij is, omdat Oekraïne dichtbij is en omdat dat land bij een vrij en democratisch Europa horen wil.
En verder moet het ronduit asociale wicht Blommestijn maar eens bedenken dat WIJ ook geholpen zijn in de donkerste uren van onze geschiedenis. Het Verenigd Koninkrijk had het best op een akkoordje kunnen gooien met Adolf Hitler. Die mogelijkheid was er.
De Britten kozen ervoor door te vechten. Zij verloren 450.000 burgers voor ónze vrijheid. Jouw vrijheid Blommestijn om tegen onze democratie en rechtsstaat aan te kunnen pissen. In Poetins “paradijs“ hoef je dat niet te doen. De enige prijs die wij betalen is vooralsnog energie.

Firstly, you guys got me to 20,000 followers, so thank you all so much💙💛

This week I have a lot of commentary work, but will try to be as quick as ever with updates throughout.
News breaking right now is another night-time attack on #Kharkiv

There have been multiple explosions in the city so far and more rockets on the way according to tracking.

The missiles have landed near the centre according to early reports

🧵Some thoughts on the murder of #UkrainianPOWs by #russians which they try to pin on #Ukraine. Obviously it's related to the surfaced video of orcs torturing #UAF #POWs. It shows the pattern in 🇷🇺crisis mgmt & chaos in 🇷🇺structures - one hand isn't aware of what other's doing->
ON 1 HAND #russians carry out a terror campaign against #Ukraine, w/ tortures, mutilations, beheadings, executions of #UkrainianPOWs, actually spreading these videos to boost #russian morale and demoralize #Ukrainians, ON THE OTHER 🇷🇺 propaganda is busy whitewashing russians->
Obviously #Ukrainian #pow castration videos spread by "col. Kurtz"-minded #russian military f#cks things up for #russian psyops. Likely what happened was the psyops "cleaning out the mess" and covering the tortures/executions of #Ukraine #POW by russians->

1/ Operational update regarding the #russian_invasion at 1800 on July 17, 2022.
No major changes on the entire front line. Russians conducted several small assaults & reco ops but had no success whatsoever. #UAarmy resisted everywhere.

On July 17, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER on flight #MH17 from #Amsterdam to #KualaLumpur was shot down over #Ukraine. There is a competent technical analysis of the events surrounding the crash that strip away the fakes around the technical part of the crash.
The analysis was conducted by Mark Solonin on his YouTube channel, disproving almost all the main fabrications about the technical part of the crime. His three videos take up over four hours of airtime, but it's worth spending that time if you want to know the truth.
On the delivery of the Buk surface-to-air missile (SAM) system to the launch site, there was also a remarkable investigation by both the Joint Investigation Team (JIT ) and several teams of investigative journalists.

Eight years ago, Russia shot down a Boeing 777 near Donetsk. Nearly 300 people were killed as a result of the actions of the aggressor country.

#TerroRussia #RussianWarCrimes
On July 17, 2014, an aviation accident occurred in the east of the Donetsk region involving a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, which was performing a scheduled #MH17 flight on the Amsterdam-Kuala Lumpur route.
A few hours after takeoff, the board was hit by a 9M38 series missile fired from the Buk anti-aircraft missile system.

298 people died.

Day 144 of #Russia's full scale invasion of its peaceful neighbour.

Updates throughout the day as stories unfold in #Ukraine and beyond.
First the British update shows #Russia concerned about #Ukraine's counter attack in the south
#Russia has still not taken total control of #Luhansk region despite the perception.

That's the point being made by #Ukraine's governor for the region. Serhiy Haidai says "two villages in Luhansk remain under 🇺🇦 control. Russians cannot overcome the few kilometres."

8 years ago today a Russian operated surface-to-air Buk from the 53rd Air Defense Brigade, based outside of Kursk, shot down the civilian airliner #MH17 and murdered 298 innocent civilians, including 88 children, from a field south of Snizhne in Donetsk Oblast. /1
Shortly afterwards, Igor Girkin (Strelkov) announced that a Ukrainian An-26 was shot down near the town of Torez (since 2016 called Chystiakove nearby Snizhne) and shared pictures of smoke in the distance. /2
After it became clear that the Buk downed a civilian airliner, Girkin quickly removed his gloating post. /3

Hoi Geert, Joost, Thier en Wierd

Acht jaar terug alweer, vandaag #MH17. De tijd vliegt

En, omdat ik weet dat jullie altijd druk zijn met geld verdienen, vandaag héél de dag alleen maar quotes over MH17 leugens, Poetin verdedigen & Kremlin hoaxertjes helpen.

Daar gaan we:
2/x over #MH17

Nee, Geert Wilders kreeg geen cent van het Kremlin, in die 32 jaar als beroepspoliticus. Heus!

Ja, okay. Front National, Lega Nord, AfD, Jobbik, UKIP, FPÖ enz kregen tot 40 miljoen steun van Ome Poetin, maar alléén Geert niet. Echt waar!!

Tomorrow it is 8 years since the downing of passenger jet #MH17 by Russian forces in #Donbas

298 innocent people lost their lives - their relatives are waiting for justice - Russia is denying, lying and protecting the suspects, one of them is Russian warlord Igor Girkin🧵
Right after the shot down of MH17 Girkin was even celebrating online, because he thought they hit an Antonov AN-26 Ukrainian military transporter.

Later he realized it was a passenger jet and he deleted his posting. The same "AN-26 reporting" at Russian TV channel "Live News"..
After Russia and Russian proxies were aware about what actually happened, they launched a ton of conspiracy theories:
- "Ukrainians shot it down with a BUK missile"
- "Ukrainian jet attacked"
- "People on the plane were dead already (quote Girkin)"
- "It was a bomb"

#Russia's war on #Ukraine enters Day 135 - here's the start of the daily thread.

All the news updated throughout the day in one handy place!

Expecting a new push from Russians soon after troop rotation, Ukraine hoping new weapons will help their defence.
The main focus continues to be in the east of #Ukraine

But #Ukraine is regaining its territory in #Kherson region. Here's the UK MOD asessment.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Among data published regularly by #Kyiv is children affected by #PutinsWar.

The number of kids known to have been killed or injured by Russia will reach 1,000 within a week, while many more deaths remain hidden in occupied cities like #Mairupol'

Currently 347 dead, 646 injured

Welcome to Wednesday, and daily thread #126 on #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

More death and destruction overnight from Russian missiles, but remember barbaric attacks like on #Kremenchuk are NOT mistakes. They are targeted terror attacks on a peaceful nation.

Read on...
Three dead, five injured so far in another cowardly attack by #Russia on a residential building in #Mykolaiv.

The usual terror tactics, soft targets. Civilians very much in the Russian army sights with each missile.
Each one a war crime and so far no justice as killing continues ImageImageImageImage
In case you missed it last night, another of #Russia's pathetic defences over the #Kremenchuk massacre is "but there's no video of the hit"

There is: here's a still of the giant missile about to kill dozens - video in the link.

1/5 After the 🇷🇺Russian missile strike on 🇺🇦Kyiv this morning (a civilian building has been hit, injuring a little girl and killing her father), I have already seen three different Russian propaganda messages.

They may serve as a reminder of how the Russian propaganda works. ⬇️
2/5 The messages are:

1. The building was empty, there was no one inside.
2. The 🇺🇦Ukrainian air defence is to blame for shooting down a missile near the building.
3. It's all "fake", just like the "White helmets" stuff in 🇸🇾Syria was fake.

There probably are (or will be) more.
3/5 The 🇷🇺Russian propaganda machine doesn't care if those messages are mutually exclusive, easily disprovable or downright absurd.

The point is to flood you with multiple "alternate" versions of events. The more the better. They want to make you doubt: "It's not so clear".

Day 121 📌 Today marks exactly four months since the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Four months of struggle by the people of Ukraine. Four months of unprecedented solidarity. Read more about the current situation in Ukraine in the update ⬇️…
EU government leaders holding a 2-day summit in Brussels approved a recommendation from the @EU_Commission to grant candidate status to Ukraine & Moldova 😍 The landmark decision immediately delivered a tremendous morale boost in both countries and was cheered widely there.
Ukrainians took to the streets twice, in 2004 & 2014, to force the government to root out corruption & come closer to the EU. 8 years ago, 🇺🇦 calling for closer relations with the EU during the Revolution of Dignity were shot & killed by police from the pro-Moscow administration

Ukraine is an EU candidate! How did we get here?

Since @EuromaidanPress was born on Euromaidan, a thread 🧵 about Ukraine's most recent history 👇
Ukraine was always part of Europe. Geographically, historically, linguistically.

After the USSR broke up, 🇺🇦 started looking west, though pro-🇷🇺 forces also rode to power on Soviet nostalgia. But even pro-🇷🇺 Prez Yanukovych was on track to sign 🇺🇦🇪🇺 Association Agreement...👇
Enter Putin.

“[His] great anxiety was that Ukraine could become economically & politically successful so Russians would eventually ask themselves ‘Why are our brothers doing so well, while our situation remains dire?’” as advisor to Merkel said.

His fears grew w/Arab Spring👇

18/6/22 - Ihor Kolomoyskyi is de tweede rijkste persoon in de Oekraïne. Kolomoyskyi spreekt zich uit over het neerhalen van #MH17. ‘Apparently it was an incident, nobody had any intend to take it down.’ Wie schoot MH17 uit de lucht?…
24/2/22 - De Russen vallen de Oekraïne binnen. Waarom denkt u dat de Oekraïne als eerste daad de boekhouding in de fik zette? MH17? NATO Biolabs? Dubieuze geldtransacties? #beerput…
17/6/22 - Waarom zet Nederland zo enorm hoog in, in de oorlog tegen de Russen? Gaat het om @Shell_Nederland die in oost Oekraïne gas uit de grond haalde of zijn er andere zaken die het daglicht niet verdragen meneer @markrutte?…

"Rückeroberung der #Krim":
Während sich der Westen ab etwa Mitte 2014 kleinlaut mit der sog. "Annexion" abfand, wurde das Thema all die Jahre in der #Ukraine weiter diskutiert. Zuletzt dort herrschende Meinung: Es war ein großer Fehler, keinen militärischen Widerstand ./..
geleistet zu haben, da man damit nur dem russischen Narrativ, die Bevölkerung der Halbinsel habe die grünen Männchen als Befreier gefeiert, Nahrung gab. Der Widerstand unterblieb maßgeblich auf diplomatisches Anraten westlicher Politiker, die versprachen, man werde die #Krim ./..
mit friedlichen Mitteln, insbesondere mit einer Mischung aus Sanktionen und Diplomatie, alsbald zurückholen. In diesem Zusammenhang fällt immer wieder und in erster Linie ein Name: Angela #Merkel.

In dieser Version dürfte reichlich mehr als nur ein Körnchen Wahrheit stecken..

Vandaag laatste zittingsdag #MH17 proces dat begon op 9 maart 2020. Sinds de opening van proces niet zoveel journalisten gezien als nu. De advocaten van Pulatov vervolgen dupliek van gisteren. Is opnieuw reactie op OM. Ik verwacht dus geen nieuwe feiten.…
Advocaten bespreken opnieuw het alternatieve scenario dat ze eerder schetsten over Oekraïne die per ongeluk #MH17 heeft neergehaald met Buk-installatie vanuit omgeving Zaroschenske. Is volgens hun waarschijnlijker dan scenario OM van Russische Buk afgevuurd vanuit Pervomaiskyi.
Amerikaanse deskundigen zeggen: Het is waarschijnlijker dat Oekraïners #MH17 hebben neergehaald vanuit omgeving Zaroschenske dan dat Russen dit hebben gedaan vanuit landbouwveld Pervomaiskyi. Aldus advocaten Pulatov op de laatste zittingsdag van de MH17-strafzaak.

#MH17 Rechtbank zegt zich te verbazen over de publicatie van processtukken door het OM voor publieke doeleinden (zie linkje hieronder). Advocaten van Pulatov grijpen dit nu aan voor de verdediging van hun cliënt.
#MH17 Advocaten Pulatov houden vast aan hun wat ze in hun pleidooi van maart aanvoerden: hun cliënt heeft geen eerlijk proces gehad. Ze beroepen zich hierbij op de definitie van het Europees Hof voor de Rechten v d Mens. Zo heeft OM onschuldpresumptie niet in acht genomen.
#MH17 Pulatov en zijn drie medeverdachten zijn door het OM als dader neergezet in een interview van officier van justitie Digna van Boetzelaer in het NRC van 31 december 2021 en niet als verdachten. Het OM heeft daarmee de onschuldpresumptie geschonden.

У кого в голове ещё остались сомнения по поводу того, кто восемь лет бомбил Донбасс? На видео наёмники РФ и российские РСЗО Град, с помощью которых были одновременно обстреляны позиции ЗСУ и жилые кварталы Донецкой области.

#8лет #донбасс #донецк #украина #бомбили
А вот видео, которое РФ тщательно скрывали: Моторола расстреливает жилые районы Донецка.

#8лет #донбас #донецк #моторола #бомбили #война #рф #украина
А это так... танки освободителей давят людей в Донецке

Damn it, there are so many things I need to do today. I need to jog, pay my rent, shop for groceries, go to the gym, finish a book, cook dinner for my kid.
But first, I must, FUCKING MUST talk to you about how important yesterday's "Hitler was a Jew" rant by Lavrov was.
First, facts:
1) No, he fucking wasn't. I can't believe I have to tell you that. See the link. The entire theory was born because Hitler's father's original last name (from his mom), Schicklgruber, sounded funny to Russians. And funny to Russians = Jewish…
2) Lavrov's phrase is not an indicator of his own private anti-semitism or being misinformed. It's an indicator of wide-spread attitudes in Russia that have been present ever since the Third Partition of Poland, when Catherine the Great's empire inherited a big Jewish population
