1/ Just as thanks go to #Putin for injecting life into @NATO, kudos to #SergeyLavrov for giving the kiss of death today to #OpenBalkan. This #Trump Administration brainchild advances the agenda of #Russia’s strategic partner in the region, #Serbia, under @avucic. 🧵
2/ #Russia’s main outlet in the country, Sputnik Serbia @rs_sputnik, has supported #OpenBalkans consistently. And why not?
3/ #OpenBalkan is open invitation for #Vucic to exploit #Serbia’s economic size for political advantage – free from political constraints or values of #EU. #OpenBalkan = ‘Serb World’ via the marketplace for Serbia’s smaller neighbors.

I dont know if every single country has this shape of human, like Finland? #Denmark looks like a gnome who lost his shoe, and a bat. Image

Eight weeks ago at exactly this time, #Russia launched its first bombs on peaceful #Ukraine

The bombardment never lets up. Even as I type missiles are fired and some get through air defences.
But the ground war is where this war will be won

Day 56 - welcome to the daily thread:
Last night I reported on sounds from #Kharkiv, while now #Mykolaiv is receiving a pounding from the skies too, but anti-aircraft fire heard too.

No further details yet, guess we will have to wait until the morning, til light and the end of the curfew to survey the damage.
Speaking of curfews... what happens when officers catch someone?
Well this was captured on film in #Kyiv late in the evening.

If you're not deemed a saboteur or a threat, it's possible they'll make you do some exercises, push-ups or like here - squats!

Misleidende kop. 'Weken' tot het advies van de Commissie m.b.t. kandidaatstatus (al érg ambitieus). Vervolgens een rondje langs alle lidstaten (maanden) en dan eventueel kandidaatstatus. Dan nog eens jaren tot start toetredingsonderhandelingen. En dan nog eens min. 5-10 jaar.
Deze kop wekt de suggestie dat #Oekraïne 🇺🇦 zomaar bij de EU zou kunnen, maar daar is absoluut geen sprake van, ook niet met versnelde procedure. Plus, bovenstaand schema gaat ervan uit dat er geen dwarsliggers zijn. Klopt ook niet, want #Hongarije 🇭🇺 zal hoe dan ook traineren.
Toekennen van kandidaatstatus zou wel een goed signaal zijn; dat weerleg ik niet. Maar zelfs dat heeft een heleboel voeten in de aarde, en dan ben je alsnog mijlenver verwijderd van toetreding. Dit is een proces van vele jaren, zo niet decennia; zeker niet 'weken'.

1/ Is anyone surprised that Moscow would - immediately - claim that Russian atrocities in #Bucha were “staged”? Does anyone remember that Serbian President #Vucic – two decades after the fact – claimed that Serbian atrocities in #Racak, Kosovo were “fabricated”? 🧵
2/ Is everyone aware #Belgrade is revising its own past in the #Balkans – and distorting present reality of Russia’s brutal invasion? That there is a straight line between Vucic’s denial of Racak and Belgrade’s promotion of Russian aggression in #Ukraine?
3/ No. Accomplished @nytimes journalist @ATHigginsNYT downplays the Serbian government role in fostering adulation of #Putin, support for Russian invasion and Russian and Chinese #authoritarianism. Instead, we get more vox-pop ‘Balkan ghosts.’

Hoy es el Día de la Estadidad de #Serbia, su día nacional en conmemoración al levantamiento de 1804 contra el Imperio Otomano. Así que lo celebramos con un hilo de datos aleatorios sobre este bonito país en el que alguna vez me tocó vivir por unos cuantos meses.

Живели, бре! 🇷🇸 ImageImageImageImage
Desde el siglo VI, cuando llegaron los eslavos a Balcanes, Serbia fue de todo: reino, imperio, despotado, principado, reino de nuevo, reino unificado, república socialista, república federal, unión estatal y república.

Un serbio de más de 30 años, vivió en 4 países sin mudarse. ImageImageImageImage
En el medio, fue parte del Imperio Romano, Bizantino, Búlgaro, Otomano, Austrohúngaro y hasta fue controlada por Croacia en algún momento. Incluso la actual Serbia llegó a estar partida entre un norte austrohúngaro y un sur otomano.

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

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
31 deaths.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

Le porte-parole du Pentagone: "Nous continuons à voir une activité militaire inhabituelle à l'intérieur de la🇷🇺 mais près des frontières de l'Ukraine. Nous ne voulons pas qu'une action déstabilise davantage ce qui est déjà une partie très tendue du monde". Image


📣📢 |•• L'engagement des États-Unis envers l'indépendance, la souveraineté et l'intégrité territoriale de l'Ukraine est à toute épreuve, a ajouté Blinken.

Города в Боко-Которском заливе прекрасны по своему. Зачастую это старые, милые города, с узкими улочками и красными крышами. Это совершенно другая Черногория, не наляпистая Будва (абсолютно не понял этого города) или не дружелюбный Тиват.
Но Котор, это то место куда хочется возвращаться.
Старый Котор откидывает тебя на века назад. Город пропитан атмосферой средневековья. И не почти не изуродован металлопластиковыми окнами и дверьми как старая Будва.
Старый город Котора интересный и фотогеничный. Расположение города потрясает, пейзажи захватывают дух.
А крепость св. Иоанна позволяет взглянуть на фьорд и красные крыши Котора с высоты, главное осилить 1400 ступенек 🤔

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Wednesday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here, with all the data, news and analysis as #Covid19 continues to cause problems.

Slightly less mega today on the thread as I am working abroad and struggling for time and internet. Doing my best!
Starting with the case numbers from the islands of #Greece which I couldn't publish yesterday.

Broadly heading in the right direction, with exceptionally good numbers from #Crete again and #Zante

#Mykonos surges again and is still the most infected island.

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

#Crete cut new cases of #Covid19 by 43% while for #Corfu it was a 48% fall and #Rhodes saw a reduction of 38%.

#Samos and #Chios need watching...

I've been eagerly waiting to see this type of #VE comparison that includes #Sinopharm #SputnikV #PfizerBNTech.
Thanks to the study conducted in Bahrain by @DrSidMukherjee & colleagues abroad, many of the gaps in current knowledge have been filled 👇 (1/n)…
This is particularly important for LMIC that have relied heavily on #Sinopharm administration, and while the @WHO approved this vaccine, the VE data for adults >60 yo have been missing. Now we have the comparison that clearly shows two things (2/n)
1. The 3 vaccines provide significant protection against infection, hospitalization, ICU admission and death. This is great, and it means, as expected, that the #VaccinesWork.

2. The 3 vaccines are not made equal. This means that the level of protection is not the same. (3/n)

Morgen is het weer zover, het Eurovisiesongfestival. Misschien wel de leukste bijzaak in het leven. Tijd voor een draadje met een Centraal- en Oost-Europees tintje. De regio heeft ons veel moois, interessants en/of opmerkelijks – en ja, soms ook lelijks – gebracht. 1/16
Centraal- en Oost-Europa deed zijn intrede in het Songfestival in de jaren negentig en nul, na het einde van de Koude Oorlog. De landen achter het IJzeren Gordijn waren niet lid van de EBU, de Europese Radio-unie, en deden dus niet mee. 2/16
Het Warschaupact had haar eigen songfestival, het Intervisiesongfestival in Sopot, #Polen 🇵🇱 als tijdelijk vervanger van het al bestaande Sopotfestival. Het is tot vier edities gekomen, maar een groot succes is het nooit geworden. 3/16…

Following some hoopla that my tweet 👇🏻 caused…

1. I want to applaud all the medical workers in #Montenegro - epidemiologists, support staff, technicians, nurses, doctors - who are at the front line, caring for the many sick people in the hospitals around the country (🧵1/10)
You are the unsung heroes!

I want to make sure that what I’ll say is #not meant to indicate that the #services you provide in 🇲🇪 are not good - I know that you are doing your very best, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart (2/10)
*reminder: health services is not a synonym for health system

My comment that it doesn’t make sense to use #CFR (or as was referred to ‘lethality’) for comparisons between countries, and as a mirror of the quality of health system quality is based on the following facts (3/10)

Seemingly good news are coming from 🇲🇪 and this makes me happy, but I implore @VladaCG not to give false idea of security to its citizens. The number of detected cases dropped by 50% as their graph shows, but that is largely due to the ⬇️ numbers of tested performed daily. (1/4)
If you look at the incidence rate, it shows a very small decrease that cannot be reliably attributed to 'a better situation' in #Montenegro (2/4)
Don't be fooled that the situation will get better until most people are vaccinated. The B.1.1.7 (UK) strain that is wracking havoc around Europe now is growing in Montenegro too, it's just that we don't know which % it is at now because of the lack of sequencing (3/4)

#Russia, #US,and the fight over #SputnikV
#Putin made interesting comments that are important to understand how #Russia reads the situation with promotion of #vaccines
1. #Putin: "Global market for #COVID19 vaccines is worth $100 billion. We see how competitors of our producers behave: they enter a country [that is in need for vaccines],sell a small batch of vaccines on a discounted price but condition the sale with that...
2. "...the country will only purchase that vaccine from that producer in the future. So, there’s a real fight for the markets".

The daily #Coronavirus thread is underway.

If Friday turned out to be fearful, we can only hope it's not a shocking Saturday.

More and more countries and regions heading back into lockdown as #Covid19 spreads quicker then the vaccines.

And already today new record - read on..
The first record to report is from crisis-torn #Brazil

For the 3rd successive day over 2,000 deaths.
But it's new #Covid19 cases rewriting the record books today with 84,047 positive tests, that's 12% more than the week before

2,152 more deaths takes total fatalities over 275k
Almost a record for #Norway too tonight.

905 new #Covid19 infections diagnosed in the last 24 hours, just 25 below the national record. Today's total is 31% up on the previous week.

Over 300 more Covid patients have been admitted to hospital in the last 2 days alone.
