1. @ELuttwak correctly warns that #Putin cannot give up the #Donetsk and #Luhansk regions, as he would loose face, and that he will therefore fight for them to the end. 1/4

2. But #Luttwark also thinks that #Putin would be ready to allow, conduct, and accept genuine #plebiscites in the regions which could leave #Russia without the #Donbas. 2/4

3. However, we and Putin know from many opinion polls that support for #separatism was always much lower than 50% in the #Donbas. See the relevant opinion polling data collected by #KMIS @PA3yMKOB @dem_initiatives and other Institutes. 3/4

Lo stato della guerra in #Ucraina, il futuro politico di Kiev, si regge su un filo sottilissimo, la cui tenuta dipende dalla velocità con cui l'Occidente fornirà sostegno militare alle truppe 🇺🇦, e allo stesso tempo dalla capacità della 🇷🇺 di riconoscere che è (quasi) finita
2/14
Ne sono convinti gli esperti dell'ISW, secondo cui il fattore tempo risulterà cruciale per stabilire "dov'è la vittoria". E chi la farà sua.
Scenario.
Nelle settimane a venire, #Putin potrebbe proclamare l'annessione di diversi territori dell'#Ucraina sud-orientale.

Quesito.
Il Cremlino è in grado di riconoscere l'incapacità di avanzare oltre sul terreno di battaglia? Una risposta affermativa attesterebbe che Vladimir #Putin è ancora lucido, perfettamente consapevole degli equilibri di forza sul terreno, padrone del proprio destino.

Sapete chi sono questi 2 signori?
Il capo della autoproclamata #RepubblicaDonetsk DENYS #Pushilin che premia il colonnello Timur #Kurilkin che per l'occasione sfoggia sulla manica destra della mimetica il #Totenkopf delle SS e il #Valknut
Il premio è stato dato per aver contribuito a uccidere più di 250 "nazionalisti" Ucraini 🙄

Ma chi è invece #Pushilin?

Un ex truffatore che vendeva azioni della MMM, una società che si fece poi partito, fondata da Sergej #Mavrodi, deputato della #Duma
Ma...
Uno che divenne famoso in Russia per uno “#SchemaPonzi” (una truffa) che gli ha fruttato 54 Mil$
Uscito in anticipo dal carcere (in Russia 😳)fonda un partito (MMM) con “filiale” anche in Ucraina, di cui #Pushilin diventa il capo nel 2013
A Obukhiv (#Kyiv) ottiene 77 voti (0,08%)

The Hungarian PM and the president of Croatia's names have landed on the Ukrainian #Myrotvorets website. This is a denunciation website publishing names & addresses of Ukrainians and foreigners opposed to the Kiev regime. Individuals on the list end up assassinated. #Ukraine
The #US is empowering to the point of no return dangerous elements in #Ukraine that have only contempt for democracy, human rights and the rule of law. It will be on Europe to sort out this mess...

#Ucraina
Una triste storia tedesca:
1. Gli ucraini prendono a pesci in faccia la Germania rifiutando la visita del presidente Steinmeier, reo di aver lavorato a una soluzione negoziale della crisi del #Donbass ai tempi di #Minsk (sia mai, meglio la guerra!)
2. I tedeschi, anziché rispondere: questo è troppo cari Ucraini, Auf Wiedersehen, stretti -come tutti i paesi EU - tra la funzione di ancelle di Washington e l'esigenza di tenersi il gas russo, che fanno?
3. Incassano supinamente lo sberlone telecomandato da Washington e moltiplicano le forniture di armi a Kiev.
4. In questo modo: fanno salvo l'import di gas russo (almeno temporaneamente) e la funzione di ancella degli americani.

A thread about trying to understand #Russia's horrific war on #Ukraine from the perspective of someone who structured my entire understanding of the #Donbas #Donbass conflict (where I have lived past 6 yrs) around the principle of "Avoiding the Big War."
This has been churning in my head for the past month and I'm trying to work some of it out here. A lot of mea culpas and remaining ?s here. 2/
"War Avoidance" was my frame of reference since I arrived in government-controlled half of #Luhansk region in March, 2015. A months-long artillery duel between Russian/separatist and Ukrainian forces had just been ended by the #Minsk II accords. I witnessed fresh destruction. 3/

"#Ukraine's army was undermined by the corruption of its cadres...in the March/April 2014 recall of reservists, 70 percent did not show up for the first session, 80 percent for the second, 90 percent for the third, and 95 percent for the fourth."

"In Oct/Nov 2017, 70% of conscripts did not show up for the recall campaign. This is not counting suicides & desertions (often over to the autonomists)...Young Ukrainians refused to fight in the Donbass & preferred emigration, which explains...partially the demographic deficit"
"The Ukrainian Ministry of Def turned to #NATO to help make its armed forces more 'attractive.' I was asked by NATO to participate in a program to restore the image of the Ukrainian armed forces. But this is a long-term process and the Ukrainians wanted to move quickly." #Ukraine

Russische Truppen haben wieder mehrere Raketenangriffe auf Bodenziele mit Schiffsabwehrraketen vom Typ "Onyks" ausgeführt.
Die "Onyks" kann auch gegen Bodenziele eingesetzt werden, wenn die entsprechenden Koordinaten in die Abschussanlagen eingegeben werden.
(2/25)
Es ist nicht das erste Mal, dass russ.Armee die "Onyks" gegen Bodenziele in der #Ukraine einsetzt ("Strobile" in der NATO-Klassifikation).
Bereits im März gab es ähnliche "Onyks"-Angriffe. Damals erklärten ukr.Vertreter, dass "den Russen die Raketen ausgegangen" seien.

🧵Update from Professor Mychailo Wynnyckyj, Kyiv Mohila Academia.
Kyiv – afternoon March 7

1. Today “peace talks” between 🇷🇺 and 🇺🇦delegations have started in the Bilovezhska Pushcha resort in Belarus – the same place the agreement to dismember the USSR was signed Dec 1991.
2. I’m not sure how the symbolism of site selection should be interpreted, but if the rumors are true, the Russians have arrived at the talks having completely misunderstood #Ukraine’s current reality.
3. Journalist and #Bellingcat contributor @christogrozev (2019 Euro Press Prize winner) shares Russians have proposed the following as prerequisites of a ceasefire: 1) #Zelensky remains pro forma President, but pro-Russian Opposition Party leader Yuriy Boiko is appointed PM;

Vadim Papura era un comunista ucraniano muy joven, de 17 años, que fue quemado vivo en la hoguera en la Casa de los Sindicatos de Odessa, establecida por las milicias neonazis ucranianas. Las hordas solían llevar a cabo y consolidar el golpe de 2014 (Sigues el hilo)
Un golpe ucronazis que derrocó al gobierno electo, culpable de ser demasiado "pro-ruso", es decir, muy poco "pro-estadounidense". +
