Hoy se cumplen 31 años de la (re)declaración de independencia de #Azerbaiyán, así que lo celebramos con un hilo sobre esta Tierra del Fuego que nada tiene que ver con Ushuaia, el país de los volcanes de barro y los mares que arden 🇦🇿🔥 Image
La historia de #Azerbaiyan empieza en la cueva Azykh, en donde habitaron los primeros humanos (o casi) en la zona.

Se encontraron fósiles de neandertal de unos 300 mil años. Pero además tenían ¡CHIMENEA! La 1° de la historia. La hermandad entre azeríes y fuego comenzó entonces. ImageImage
(Sí, sí, la cueva está en el territorio en disputa de #NagornoKarabakh, pero bajo control de Azerbaiyán y reconocido internacionalmente como territorio azerbaiyano)

BREAKING: #Armenia 🇦🇲 and #Azerbaijan 🇦🇿 have agreed to sign a formal peace deal which includes an official delimitation of the border by the end of the year.
This deal (if successfully followed through) would be a major diplomatic victory for the European Union.

Just last week intens negotiations between 🇦🇲🇦🇿 were taking place under 🇫🇷🇪🇺 supervision. The Kremlin was completely left out of the process
News of a possible deal does not mean that peace in the #Caucasus is within reach. The #Kremlin could try to spoil an agreement, #Aliyev is still an expansionist authoritarian, and the future status of #NagornoKarabakh will probably remain undetermined.

Ayer fue el día de la independencia de #Abkhazia / #Abjasia así que lo celebramos con un hilo sobre este ¿país? Bueno, este territorio que casi todo el planeta reconoce como parte de #Georgia, pero 5 países consideran independiente, y que fue campeón del mundo de fútbol ⚽️🏆
Abjasia y Osetia del Sur/Tsjinvali son 2 regiones habitadas por etnias particulares. En tiempos de URSS, la represión al nacionalismo mantuvo la estabilidad, pero en los 80 Georgia estableció al georgiano como único idioma oficial y abolió la autonomía de Osetia. Y eso no gustó.
Ya que Georgia se independiazaba y que el clima político era caótico, Abjasia aprovechó: hizo un referéndum en 1991 y declaró, primero, la voluntad de seguir bajo el mando de Moscú y, el 23/7/92, la independencia.

Esta semana, el 21 de septiembre, #Armenia cumplió 31 años de independencia, así que lo celebramos con un hilo sobre el primer país oficialmente cristiano del mundo, que tiene un Arca de Noé, una mano de oro y es cuna de todos los sufijos "ian".
Cuenta la leyenda que el arca de Noé encalló en el monte #Ararat, en la actual Turquía. Y dicen que descubrieron los restos del navío.

Se supone que el patriarca Hayk, fundador de Armenia, era tataratatara nieto de Noé. O chozno, que es una palabra que no uso nunca.
#Armenia fue reino y/o imperio y también parte de muchos otros imperios, entre ellos el Persa, el Romano, el Bizantino y el Otomano, que dividió Armenia y a su población en Occidental y Oriental en el siglo XVI. Esto traería unos cuantos problemas más adelante... y hasta hoy.

In 1920, League of Nations (@UN) rejected #Azerbaijan's request for membership referring the fact that it had never been a state before & appropriated the name of the Persian province; its also impossible to define 🇦🇿 borders due to territorial pretensions on #Armenia & #Georgia.
Among other contentious issues there was the issue of the status of #NagornoKarabakh. Because of the sovietization of the region the issue fell out of the agenda of international organizations.

"#Azerbaijan has unleashed new brutal attacks on the sovereign territory of #Armenia. These attacks are targeted on internationally recognised sovereign boundaries of Armenia itself & were entirely unprovoked & without justification." 🇬🇧 Parliament Member…
"It is not only attacking military bases but civilian communities and infrastructure. The APPG expresses its strongest condemnation of the Azerbaijan regime for this latest act of violence and extends our deep concern for the victims and their families."
"These acts of aggression have clearly been timed to take advantage of the world’s attention to events in #Ukraine & recently the widespread mourning for death of Queen #Elizabeth. Such aggressive opportunism needs to be condemned in strongest terms & met with a robust response."

Schwere Kämpfe im Südkaukasus.
#Aserbaidschan hat in der Nacht zum Dienstag offensichtlich auf gleich sieben Abschnitten armenisches Staatsgebiet angegriffen (nicht Karabach).
Baku sieht die Schuld dennoch bei Jerewan.
Armenien fordert internationale Hilfe.
Nach Angaben aus Jerewan startete die #AzerbaijanArmy in der Nacht zum Dienstag massive Angriffe aus bis zu sieben Richtungen entlang der südlichen Grenze.
Am Dienstag gingen die azerb. Angriffe auf mehreren Abschnitten weiter, erklärte der arm. Generalstab.
Zu Bedenken:
Es geht dabei NICHT um #NagornoKarabakh (Bergkarabach), sondern explizit um Armenien selbst - also um völkerrechtlich gesehen armenisches Staatsgebiet.

NEW – Armenian sources report that the villages of Goris, Jermuk and Vardenis are under Azerbaijani artillery fire
This is Armenia proper, not Artsakh.

Dangerous situation in the South Caucasus: with #Russia tied up in the #Ukraine, lots of media attention on developments there this past week, the South Caucasus appears all but stable 2 years after the war in #NagornoKarabakh, #Armenia proper now appears in the crosshairs.
#Azerbaijan's leadership officially demanding a corridor through southern #Armenia towards its Nakhichevan exclave, Armenian not so clear on their stance at times, #Iran stating it will provide one through its own territory... a lot of speculation on this topic.
Comes 3 weeks after the last ethnic Armenians left the Lachin area, the main road there linking #NagornoKarabakh and #Armenia was transferred to Azeri control, Russian peacekeepers redployed to the new road built by Azerbaijan a few kilometres south.

6 months into #Russia’s aggression against #Ukraine, there are mostly losers.

One potential winner is #Turkey, given 2nd-order effects of the war.

Since Feb, Ankara has gained some leverage vis-a-vis both #Russia and #NATO.

An attempt at a (complicated) balance sheet🧵(1/18)
Since Feb, #Turkey has attempted a careful balancing act on #RussiaUkraineWar:
-No sanctions against #Russia
-No boycott of Russian #gas
-#Erdogan engaging #Putin frequently & visibly
-Giving #Ukraine #BayraktarTB2
-Invoking Montreux Convention

I could go on and on (2/18)
As a result of
1) Turkey successfully mediating grain exports from Ukraine ports &
2) #Russia increasingly shunning traditional mediation platforms (Geneva),
Turkey is poised to become chief intermediary on operational issues re #RussiaUkraineWar… (3/18)

Als Reaktion auf Pelosis Besuch startete #China umfangreiche Manöver rund um #Taiwan , darunter massive Artillerie- und Raketenschießen.
Mindestens zwei ballistische Raketen wurden direkt über der Insel hinweg geschossen.

❗️ 1) #Azerbaijan controls about 42 sq km of #Armenia's territory, the Armenian MOD responded to my request.

"The total volume of invasion of Azerbaijani Armed Forces units into the sovereign territory of #Armenia since May 2021 is 41.78 sq km."

#Artsakh #NagornoKarabakh Image
2) I didn't ask the MOD general data, but "how many sq km of the territory of #Armenia was occupied by #Azerbaijan south of Khoznavar."

The fact of the advance of #Azerbaijan in Nerkin Khand–Bardutakhk confirmed by the MOD #Armenia in response to my previous requests... Image
3) Moreover, according to my estimates, #Azerbaijan controls about 9 sq km of #Armenia|n territory in this area.

At the end of May, the Armenian MFA announced the occupation of more than 45 sq km only (!) in the Sotk-Khoznavar area...

A thread on yesterday’s attack on #NagornoKarabakh, and my fear of what it signifies (in summary: more and worse fighting) 1/18
First, while yesterday was a spike of violence, yesterday was not the beginning. Apparently (I cannot corroborate), Azerbaijani troop movement began a few days earlier. 2/18
The actual fighting began with Azerbaijan violating the ceasefire on 1 August. This has been confirmed by the Russian peacekeepers.… 3/18

Wednesday 3 August. Day 161 of #Russia's full scale invasion of peaceful #Ukraine

Welcome to my daily thread, with all the news from, and affecting the war. DMs open for tips (anonymous if preferred)

Thx to those who already supported me.
Still big problems for #Russia in the occupied south of #Ukraine. British Intel today highlighting the transport links which will hinder their attempts to fend off a Ukraine assault in #Kherson or counter attack here towards #Mykolaiv.
The #Ukraine land assault in #Kherson will come, but #Russia adding 1000s of extra (untrained) conscripts + Wagner mercenaries to the warzone, complicates matters

The invaders now threaten #Zaporizhzhia having failed to take all of #Donetsk

So for now 🇺🇦continues to hit 🇷🇺bases

Meine Lieben.
Ich bin zurück, nun kann´s mit Twitter-News weiter gehen.
Ich habe wieder unglaublich viel Material zum #UkraineKrieg , das ich erstmal sortieren muss. Ein Thread dazu kommt daher vsl MORGEN.
Heute ein Thread zu zwei anderen Konflikten: Jemen und Karabach👇
In den letzten Tagen ist der Konflikt zwischen dem #Yemen und #SaudiArabia deutlich eskaliert.
Die #Houthis haben saudische Ölanlagen mit Dutzenden Drohnen attackiert.
Teile der Anlagen sind komplett niedergebrannt.
#Saudis flogen Luftangriffe als Vergeltung.
Die saudische Flugabwehr präsentierte sich wieder mal als recht löchrig.
Einige der Drohnen konnten wohl abgeschossen werden, etwa zwei Dutzend kamen dennoch durch.
Das Ganze ist durchaus erstaunlich, da Riad eigentlich über moderne Flugabwehrsysteme aus den USA verfügt.
