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
Short THREAD
#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".

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

THREAD #Serbian #Orthodox #Church bishops start Conclave (#Sabor-Holy Assembly in #SPC parlance) to elect new #Patriarch, 3 months after previous died of #Covid. Election much more about politics than religion, mainly #Serbia #Kosovo relations but also #Russia Orthodox Church /2
2/ vs. #Ecumenical Patriarch of #Constantinople. Most of numerous traditional cleavages within SPC (Young Lions vs. Old Guards); Serbians vs. TransDrinians; ecumenicals vs. hardline Orthodox etc. will be irrelevant with only the split between Russian vs. Greek students, roughly/3
3/corresponding with main division: support for whatever "solution" President Vucic might propose to satisfy int'l demand to at least de facto recognize Kosovo vs. stubborn refusal to accept anything not in line with current Serbian constitution that says #KosovoJeSrbija. /4

To this date no one in four #WesternBalkan countries recieved a #CovidVaccine:

#BiH🇧🇦, #Kosovo🇽🇰, #Montenegro🇲🇪 & #NorthMacedonia🇲🇰

Many rightfully ask why

In #BiH, for example, authorities relied on #COVAX, #EU🇪🇺 procurement mechanism patience of citizens (?!)👇🏼
Following an agreement of BiH governments in charge for health matters by November 2020 state level authorities (kind of) finalised paperwork to be able to order 1,232,000 dosis of vaccines via #COVAX + 892.000 dosis via an #EU procurement mechanism.

balkaneu.com/bih-finalizes-…
Already in December 2020 authorities in #BiH made it clear they had no plans to try to negotiate, lobby & get vaccines via direct purchase. They defended their decision by claiming it is safer & cheaper (+legal) to wait & hoped citizens would be patient.

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭
57 are detailed in the link provided.👇
investitor.me/2019/06/17/50-… Image
2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage

1-The election of the new 46th Serbian Patriarch (Full title: Archbishop of Peć, Metropolitan of Belgrade and Karlovci, and Serbian Patriarch), who are the candidates, the election process and what's at stake. My thread
2-During the period of interregnum, the church will be lead by a caretaker, most probably Hrizostom, the Metropolitan Bishop of Dabrobosna, Archbishop of Sarajevo and Exarch of all Dalmatia. A Bishop unlikely to become the Patriarch
3-How is the new patriarch elected? The Assembly of Bishops of the SPC votes. It elects 3 candidates who win most votes. Their names are written on 3 pieces of paper and placed in the Bible. The oldest of the archimandrites (superior abbot) prays over it the entire night

#Montenegro #Podgorica #Coronavirus

Montenegro, a small Balkan state of 13,812 square kilometers and slightly more than 642,500 inhabitants, today ranks first for every 100,000 inhabitants in the number of Covid-19 infections in Europe.
Montenegro has 2,385 cases of the latest coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants, according to data from the European Center for Statistics (@EU_Eurostat).
The @Vijestime newspaper calls the results of the National Coordination Body (NKT) in the fight against the pandemic devastating and points out that, according to Eurostat itself, in terms of the number of positive cases,

Today we present Economic & Investment plan for #WesternBalkans to boost economic development & recovery of the region. We will mobilise up to €9 billion of funding for investment flagships in transport, energy, green & digital transition, to create sustainable growth and jobs.
In addition, investment capacity of the region should be boosted by mobilisation of a new #WesternBalkans Guarantee Facility, w ambition to potentially raise investments of up to €20 billion. Plan will increase grants compared to loans, as region’s fiscal space is limited.
The Plan also offers a path for a successful regional economic integration to help accelerate convergence, ultimately speeding up process of #EU integration. This plan should help to transform #WesternBalkans into one of the most attractive region for investments in the world.

Russian Diplomacy, September 15:
Lavrov spoke with #Italy's Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, who insisted on Lavrov explaining the #Navalny case, which he obviously failed to do.

They also discussed the situations in #Libya, #Belarus, and bilateral cooperation. Image
#Germany's relations with #Russia seem to be melting down over the attempted assassination by the #GRU of #Navalny.

Lavrov spewed threats and garbage on the phone with Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas over the case. Image

#Election2016 for US "a similar sort of wake-up call" to #Russia's launch of #Sputnik in 1957, per @CISAKrebs

"This was truly an affront to the American ppl because it demonstrated the potentiality to undermine democracy at large-that's why we take it as seriously as we do"
"I've said it before & I'll say it again. The 2020 election will be the most secure election in modern history" @CISAKrebs tells @BrookingsInst

"We've been truly able to raise the awareness of cybersecurity threats with our partners. They get it"
At least 92% of states will have a paper record of each vote - so election can be audited and verified, per @CISAKrebs

But with #COVID19 and expansion of absentee voting, that percentage could be even higher

At a time when the USA has made freedom of religion a priority, I'm proud to stand with @timfarron in @Newsweek to defend Christians

#NATO and UK must act now to stop the persecution of Christians and the demolition of their Church in #Montenegro

newsweek.com/nato-britain-m…
@timfarron and I may be from different parties and traditions of liberalism, but we stand together in our conviction that all have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion – and that freedom must be defended, protected everywhere @APPGFoRB
Arrests, beatings of parishioners and priests must stop; #HumanRights and #FreedomofReligion must be upheld @FCOHumanRights

🇧🇦 Ayer se cumplieron 98 años de la fundación del club bosnio Velež Mostar pero hoy te contamos su historia política.

Pasen y lean la historia del equipo comunista que todavía persiste en la lucha!👇 Image
Fundado en 1922 por trabajadores e integrantes del club Radnicki #Omladina, ligado a la clase obrera y prohibido en esa epoca, lleva el nombre de #Velez por la montaña que se encuentra cercana a la ciudad. ImageImage
En 1923 el club es acaparado por el Partido Comunista: cuando se inicia la fase de la dictadura en la monarquía yugoslava de entreguerras, el #PC yugoslavo, que habia sido prohibido, pone en marcha una estrategia de entrismo en diferentes instituciones, entre ellas las deportivas Image

🇨🇳 EE.UU ha acusado a #China de utilizar su poderío militar y económico -mediante la iniciativa One Belt One Road- para ejercer su influencia en países menos desarrollados.

Aunque lo niegue, China está aprovechando su poder para su beneficio geoestratégico.

⬇️ Abro hilo ⬇️
🇹🇴 #Tonga es el último país en unirse a la iniciativa OBOR a cambio de aumentar 5 años el plazo para devolver los préstamos concedidos por China.

Nukualofa debe a Pekín 115 millones de dólares, lo que equivale a casi un tercio del Producto Interior Bruto anual.
🇱🇰 #SriLanka tuvo que arrendar a 'China Merchants Port Holdings' el 70% del puerto de Hambantota por un periodo de 99 años a cambio de 1.100 millones de dólares.

Colombo se vio obligado a realizar esta concesión debido a la enorme deuda externa contraída con Pekín desde 2007.
