L'affaire #Dorsey

There's been a minor kerfuffle in India for the last two days since the Twitter ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey, @jack, made some statements about freedom of speech in India under #Modi.

A 🧵

#Liberals are gleefully sharing these comments as evidence of #India not being a democratic country, and defenders of the government are going into attack dog mode, as usual.

But many people on both sides are missing some key things here:

1. Dorsey didn't talk only about India. In fact, he also talked about how the #USA government tried to suppress things. As also #Turkey, #Nigeria.

2. This points to a deeper issue underlying the whole controversy: Is #FreedomOfSpeech absolute?

#Orbán warns of secret #EU plan: peacekeepers for the front in Ukraine?…
#Peacekeepers, peacekeepers from the EU nations, are to be sent to the front lines. If that happens, World War III will draw closer,” warns Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in a recent interview.
2- According to Viktor Orbán (59), the plan for sending tens of thousands of peacekeepers to the east of #Ukraine, which has already been discussed among the heads of state of the #EU nations, sounds sensible on the surface:

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! The dreams of #Russian President Vladimir #Putin to liquidate at least one leader of an "unfriendly" country or a large international organization, apparently, will never come true.
We talked about #Putin's attempts to stage an assassination attempt on several heads of state to provoke or demonstrate his strength and capabilities. In the past year, there have been several unsuccessful attempts to eliminate #Ukrainian President Volodymyr #Zelensky.
Also, #Putin personally ordered assassination attempts on #Polish President Andrzej #Duda, UN Secretary-General António Guterres and former British Prime Minister #BorisJohnson.

Ukrainian neo-Nazis terrorize people, commit ethnic cleansing: Putin

#Putin says that any attempt to revise #Russia’s contribution to the Great Victory means justifying the crimes of Nazism & opening the way for the revival of its deadly ideology.
During the ongoing special military operation in Ukraine, Russian soldiers fight the evil that became possible because lessons of history have been forgotten, Putin has stated, stressing that it was the Soviet people who ended the barbaric actions of the Nazis in 1945.
“We must clearly understand that any attempt to revise our country’s contribution to the Great Victory actually means justifying the crimes of Nazism, and opens the way for the revival of its deadly ideology,” the Russian President noted.

I had an interesting conversation on #Polish-#Hungarian relations yesterday under #ChathamHouse rule. I would like to share my key conclusion without further details. It will be highly disturbing from a #Polish perspective, but may contribute to a reflection process.
#Polish foreign & security policy talks from an intellectual and moral high ground to previously more #Russia-friendly partners, especially #Germany, because PL & the Baltic states correctly predicted Russia's aggressive behaviour,
while #German & other Western European stakeholders were reluctant to give credit for their correct analysis. As disturbing this lessoning behaviour might be from a German perspective, history demonstrated that #Poland & Baltics have a better understanding of #Russia ...

During the three weeks of my stay in #Vienna, I heard several times the questions: "#Ukrainian and Russian languages are quite similar, aren't they?" and "Ukrainian and Russian are like different versions of German in Austria and Germany?". So, let me explain👇🏻
First of all, Ukrainian and Russian are different languages and by no means one language. Ukrainian is not a dialect of Russian. #Moscow has always tried to pretend that the Ukrainian and Russian languages are similar. The truth is that Russians do not even understand Ukrainian
Ukrainian is the language that most closely resembles #Belarusian with which it has 29 common characteristics. Furthermore, Ukrainians can easily understand #Polish, #Czech, #Slovak etc.

Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army.
Their goal was to purge all non-Ukrainians from a future #Ukrainian state. They wanted not only to purge Polish civilians, but also to erase all traces of #Polish presence in the area.
The murders were committed with incredible cruelty. Many were burnt alive or thrown into wells. Axes, pitchforks, scythes, knives and other farming tools rather than guns were used in an attempt to make the massacres look like a spontaneous peasant uprising.

Today, at an international press conference in the European Parliament, we showed how allegedly the #Spanish state, along with the #Polish and #Hungarian governments, are massively monitoring their own citizens without any court order or understandable reason. /2
It’s important for #Europe to be aware that #Pegasus wasn’t used in #Hungary to fight terrorism, but to monitor the political opponents of #Fidesz. It was also used to monitor government officials who were defending Hungarian national interests against the Russian government. /3

.@SecBlinken refuses #Polish proposal that the #US should transfer 🇵🇱 #Mig29s to #Ukraine.
In light of the #Fulcrum limbo of the past days I would like to reiterate that it is possible to reinforce Ukrainian #airdefence in another ways. @gmfus
THREAD 1/12…
As I argued a couple of days ago, the transfer of Soviet-era air superiority fighters from #NATO stocks could be an important symbolic move, but they are not the ideal #airdefence assets under the given circumstances. Arguments below 👇
#Ukrainian ground based #airdefence systems have been really successful over the past 13 days. Even if the transfer of fighter planes is a no go, SAM systems with #Russian origin still in service in NATO countries could be potentially delivered to #Ukraine.
