🧵It appears that as of now we have no consensus in @NATO to bring #Ukraine into the alliance, with the conversation having shifted to debating a formula that would provide assurances and support to Ukraine short of membership. These half measures will help, but not enough. 1/8
I won’t go into those proposals, as in my view none offers a clear path forward that Ukraine needs to rebuild after the war. Moscow banks that that the West will not stand up for what it preaches, and that it will push #Ukraine to a settlement that will cede UKR territory. 2/8
We continue to re-debate why #Russia invaded #Ukraine instead of focusing on how to defeat the invasion. And most of all, while govt documents and analytical pieces talk of a new era of great power competition, I have yet to see a clear articulation of what victory look like.3/8

2. If the elections were to be held tomorrow, @pisorgpl would've to rig them to stay in power. Fifty to thirty-something - in most polls this is the ratio of support for the democratic opposition to the United Right's ratings. Image
3. Until now, it's been a worrying mystery as to how the large group of undecided voters of several % would vote. In polls already conducted after the 4/06 march, this number has essentially fallen. And the @Platforma_org ratings rose by about as much.

#Poland's #RuleofLaw breakdown: If correctly reported, this is quite the admission from @VeraJourova as it directly contradicts what Commission told MEPs last Jan and this would make VDL Commission complicit in violation i.a. of law-making Art 7(1) recommendation and milestone...

#France and #Macron deserve a thread in the context of #Ukraine, #Russia and beyond.

- First, some historical context: France, just like #Britain, is a declining power. This process started with the loss of colonies after the World War 2.

🧵 ...

- A clear geopolitical shift happen with the Suez Crisis in 1956, which marked the emergence of #USA and #USSR as the world powers.

- #France also experienced a humiliating military defeat by #Germany during the World War 2. That shaped rather pretentious politics of ...

.. Charles de Gaulle, who tried to restore the French power with dissenting views vis-a-vis #Americans and #British (or the "collective Anglo-Saxons"). In 1966, #France withdrawn from the #NATO's military command.

Hello everybody - let's get the show on the road for another week!

It's the original, the one & only daily🧵with all you need to know about what's happening in #Ukraine's defence against #Russia, which has reached day 446.

Catch up on Sunday's news here:
More very damaging losses for #Russia yesterday.

#Ukraine's figures show almost 7% of all destroyed artillery systems happened in the last 24 hours.

Vehicles, fuel tanks and special equipment also above the mean as well as killed soldiers.
#RussiansGoHome Image
The British update today questions #Russia's air defence.

It's always been a problem for Moscow after sending most of its domestic protection to #Ukraine, only to have to bring some back as #Kyiv shows more ability to hit long range targets.

#Ukraine: Today's updates from #UkraineWar: 1. Whoa! RU cracks begin to show. UA Command/#Progozhin both confirm UA advances in #Bakhmut. UA have regained several in the city & routed the 6th/8th companies of RU 72nd brigade in the S. #tweet100
#Ukraine: 2. Following grinding down of Wagner forces over last few months, they were replaced on the #Bakhmut flanks by RU regular forces. UA 3rd Assault engaged RU on SW flank & they ran away, abandoning land Wagner had lost 500 men capturing. #tweet100
#Ukraine: 3. According to UA Azov Commander, Andrey Biletsky, a strip of land 3km long & 2.6km wide in places, has been recaptured in SW #Bakhmut. RU also lost a bridgehead over the Siversky-Donets canal S of the city. #Tweet100 (Maps: @Tendar) ImageImage

Wednesday 10 May
Day 441 of this terrible war.
At least #Ukraine has woken relatively peacefully today in contrast to most recent days.

All the news on #Russia's invasion, all day in one thread. If you want to buy me a coffee please see my bio for the link💙💛
So y'day was another violent & busy day as #Russia celebrated Victory Day but with zero victory to salute in its illegal invasion of #Ukraine

More deaths by fire, setbacks in #Bakhmut and #Wagner being labelled terrorists by more countries. Catch up here:
#Russia's losses in the last 24 hours show a marked decrease in he amount of equipment destroyed compared to the recent trend.

However, #Ukraine is killing more and more soldiers as Russians continue kamikaze tactics in #Donetsk with the one resource they have plenty of: people. Image

Welcome along to the daily thread for Day 440 of the war in #Ukraine

More deadly missile attacks launched in the early hours this morning by #Russia on what is supposed to be one of the sacred days in the calendar, 9 May.
#Russia has no victory to celebrate.

All the news here⬇️
It was another busy day yesterday, a lot of news from the battlefields of #Ukraine and beyond too.

For a catch up on anything you missed on Monday, click and scroll down from this link:

So during the night #Russia launched no fewer than 25 Cruise missiles - but #Ukraine's air defences managed to shoot down 23 of them.

In the first wave 8 Kalibrs were fired from Black Sea ships. Then at 4am 17 Kh-101/555s were fired by ships over the Caspian Sea. Image

While #RussiaIsANaziState spent all night bombing us on eve of their 9 May myth, I use that time to deploy truth of this myth because this is all Russia has. Nothing else. Lies. #VictoryDay 🧵
1. Russia exists as nation of stolen cultures, people, achievements. This country is held together by myth of greatness that Russia alone defeated Nazi Germany. As you see even now, they lie about who they are and who everyone else is.
2. Without Russia there would have been no Nazis to defeat and no WWII to end. Russia funded German socialists also known as Nazis and provided resources in exchange for Nazi weapons:
“such as oil, grain, iron and phosphates.”…

Two drones struck over the Kremlin last night, and a third drone hit Kolomna near #Moscow. These hits are far from being a game changer. The #US is incapable of defeating #Russia so it is trying to invite Moscow to kill Zelensky, who is hiding now in #Finland, afraid to return.
It is just an attempt to humiliate #Moscow on social media because these drones caused no physical damage but is an obvious under the belt CIA hit to inflict psychological effect on #Russia and invite it to destroy further #Ukraine.
To my mind, the #US is trying to wipe #Ukraine off the map to distance itself from any commitment; to justify its failure to Europe and the World; to divide Ukraine between #Russia and #Poland, the new centre of Europe where eastern EU nations are more obedient than western EU.

Nine years ago, #RussiaIsANaziState attacked Jews of #Odesa.

Simon Wiesenthal became our map. On 24 February, full scale #RussiaIsANaziState invasion began that included targeting Jews, killing Holocaust survivors, destroying #Holocaust memorials and using Russian
Protocols of Zion propaganda again for another #Holocaust. Except Odesa Jews were ready. It will take lifetime #RussiaIsANaziState does not have to understand what we did to stop them. #RussiaIsANaziState is collapsing. We ensured it.

You Rashists are never killing Jews again.

It's Friday already and here is Daily Thread No. 422 covering events in #Ukraine and #Russia's illegal war.

Yesterday was fairly quiet, but if you need to catch up on events, click and scroll here⬇️

First, one big update on this story in #Russia which broke last night.

The Kremlin has actually admitted they bombed themselves in #Belgorod! #FriendlyFire on steroids!

They also admit 2 people were injured when #Russia bombed its own city, #Belgorod.

Look at the first photo - a car blown onto the roof of a supermarket!

The Kremlin says "abnormal derailment of aviation ammunition occurred" from a Su-34 VKS aircraft.

The bomb fell off😅🤡 ImageImageImageImage

Day 419 of the war in Europe.
#Russia's illegal war & full invasion of #Ukraine.
The day Bunker Boy emerged from his Kremlin bunker!

Yesterday was very interesting with Wagner troops confessing war crimes, more Russian fires, collaborators + more, here⬇️

The scale of the war is difficult to comprehend for those living far away. But @SkyNews brings it to life with this report.

15% (381) of all education establishments in #Ukraine have been damaged or destroyed by #Russia in the first year.
#Russia's President Putin (or at least a lookalike) has appeared in #Ukraine's Occupied Territories.

He is said to have flown into #Kherson region to visit the "Dnepr" Command of troops and then taken a helicopter to the "East" Command in #Luhansk.

🇵🇱Poland, 🇸🇰Slovakia & 🇭🇺Hungary have banned #grain imports from 🇺🇦Ukraine, saying 🇪🇺EU's freeze of import tariffs to help get Ukraine grain around the world is flooding their markets and hurting their farmers.

But such unilateral trade actions cannot be taken nationally.
Despite these bans being a clear violation of EU law, the 🇪🇺Commission took a soft approach today and wouldn't even say what possible repercussions there could be.

Why? They likely don't want to become a pawn in Polish election politicking.
Poland's hard-right nationalist governing party PiS depends on the farmer and rural vote to maintain power - and there's an election later this year.

🇵🇱farmers have been protesting the Ukrainian grain influx (which has drastically lowered prices) and the Ag minister resigned.

This is the start of Sunday's daily thread covering all the news, and all you need to know, about #Ukraine's battle for survival against the full invasion by #Russia.

Updated in real time, throughout the day, scroll, share, like and reply to help beat Twitter Ukraine bans!
If you can spare any loose change for a coffee to support my work, there's a Ko-Fi link in my bio, thanks.

And if you need a catch up on yesterday's news, here's the link for the start of Saturday's thread.

So it's Day 417 of the war, and I have to say "Khrystos Voskres" (Christ Is Risen) or "Happy Easter" to all my readers from #Ukraine - and indeed #Russia if they are in the minority which opposes war.
The same wishes to all Orthodox believers celebrating Easter today.

And so begins Day 416 of the wretched war.
Bloodthirsty #Russia continues its illegal assault and attempt to destroy #Ukraine.

You've found the start of another daily thread with all the news.

As I'm search/shadowbanned please reply to this (write anything) and retweet to help!
Friday was quite a busy one, unfortunately the news led by another Terrorist Attack by #Russia.

But there was also the surprise of seeing Prigozhin call for an end to the war, and lots more interesting stuff.

Catch up here:

The #UK thinks #Russia's new laws on being able to deliver call-ups via email or text, indicate the Kremlin is preparing for a long war in #Ukraine.

This concurs with most experts' views as the invaders continue to build defences in the Occupied Territories. Image
