On this 33rd anniversary of the #VelvetRevolution - we reclaim our revolution, our democracy, our freedom, and our friends.
His Holiness @DalaiLama was the first foreign leader and friend President #Havel welcomed.

Mr. Havel didn't befriend him because of his military or economy. He befriended a leader who fled his home, who was not recognized by the world, and whose people faced annihilation.
President #Havel sought alliance and friendship with one who yearned to be free - who believed that truth and love must prevail over lies and hatred in the face of naked aggression and brutal repression.

#HongKongers need the same friendship from you - the Czech people - today.

JUST IN: #BNNArmenia Reports.

Political analyst Sergey Melkonya in an interview said that the Armenian authorities in Prague have given up on Artsakh. #Armenia #Artsakh #Prague #Nation
"The main success of Azerbaijan, and Turkey is that Armenia said that it gives up on the Artsakh issue. Means Armenia is no longer in the conflict and accepts Artsakh's future is an internal issue of Azerbaijan," he said.
He noted that de facto Armenian authorities have agreed because they accepted the main preconditions - signing a peace agreement with Azerbaijan, unblocking communications, and normalizing relations with Turkey.

I’m in #Prague for tomorrow’s 1st summit of the new #EuropeanPoliticalCommunity.

The 27 🇪🇺 leaders will be joined by #Truss, #Erdogan, #Zelensky & others.

The big question: what the hell is this thing? The answer depends on what happens tomorrow in a battle between 🇬🇧&🇫🇷. 🧵1/9 Image
The idea is that this is a wider European bloc which will include countries not in the EU, either because they’re waiting to join, they don’t want to join, or they’ve left (🇬🇧).

But there are already such groupings, like the Council of Europe in Strasbourg and the OECD in Paris. Image
What’s the point of the EPC then?

The idea is that, unlike CoE & OECD, this will be a forum for heads of state and government to meet and discuss major issues.

Such leader meetings don’t happen in those other organisations. Image

🔴 #Prague #Paris #EnergyCrisis
Selon certains « journalistes » les manifestants qui sont sortis dans les rues de #Prague l’ont fait poussés par derrière, sous la menace d'une arme, par les agents de #Poutine.🙄 Nous savons qu’ILS iront jusqu'au bout si on ne fait rien. 🔽 Image
Naturellement la question qui se pose est "Que faire ?".Probablement la seule porte de sortie reste la rue mais seulement si on se mobilise vraiment massivement, les promenades de santé ne marchent pas. La pression sur les politiciens irresponsables de Bruxelles doit augmenter 🔽
considérablement. Ils ne pourront pas abuser indéfiniment. Au risque d'être étiquetés "pro-russes" et "néo-nazis", nous ne pouvons pas rester les bras croisés. On ne peut pas regarder impassiblement l'effondrement de l'Europe, bien orchestré par les complices de Joe Biden à 🔽

You've found the start of daily thread number 192 covering #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine

Last night some stories on the thread included the tale of a kindergarten head sacked in Russia and another chapter in #RussiaOnFire. Catch what you missed:

1/2

#Kharkiv came under heavy fire again this morning.

It happens almost every night. This time a volley of missiles being fired was caught on drone footage. #Russia fired from Belgorod

These are S-300s not designed for this purpose, lacking accuracy

#RussiaIsATerroristState
2/2

Mayor of #Kharkiv Terekhov says air defences took down some missiles. But there was a hit by a school in the Novobavarsky district.

Air raid warning was active, no casualties reported.

#Prague @MinColonna @francediplo «il est important de savoir distinguer entre les fauteurs de guerre, au1er rang desquels le président russe, son entourage et ts ceux qui soutiennent son effort de guerre & les citoyens russes, les artistes, les étudiants, les journalistes par ex»
@MinColonna & son homologue ukrainien ont rappelé « l’importance que la mission de l’AIEA, à la centrale nucléaire de #Zaporijjia, se déroule dans les meilleures conditions. A l’issue d’une séquence dense qui a vu la #France se mobiliser fortement pour la tenue de cette mission »
@MinColonna @francediplo a réaffirmé le soutien à l’#Ukraine dans tous les domaines, militaire, humanitaire, économique et dans le cadre des efforts de reconstruction & la poursuite de l’engagement dans la lutte contre l’impunité pour les responsables de crimes commis en Ukraine.

This week (30-31/08) EU Foreign Ministers meet in #Prague where they'll discussion the #visaban.

I've worked on issues relating to visas, borders & EU foreign & security policy for 2 decades.

Here's what you need to know
- & why you should SUPPORT the #visabanforrussians
🧵/1
You can lobby your government to support this - including on Twitter.
No one (sensible) is talking about banning all Russians from EU states. For which visas would be affected see here

/2
So, what is the point of the #visaban?

1. To support #Ukraine & shorten the war
2. To bolster #EU states' security & resilience
3. To use our power to stand up for our democracies

So how does that work?

Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andriy Melnyk, who is leaving his post, called on the city authorities of Berlin to reconsider their decision regarding the exhibition of Russian military equipment destroyed in the war in #UKRAINE, the Tagesspiegel newspaper reported. /1

Qu'est-ce qu'un pirate ?
Ce parti qui évolue silencieusement en France a pourtant une représentation Européenne. Contre les partis politiques traditionnels (comprendre lourds) et les partis extrêmes, voici un petit fil de ma composition (n'engage que moi).
Tout d'abord un article qui permet de découvrir le maire Tchèque de la petite ville de #Prague : Zdenek Hrib qui a la particularité d'être membre du #PartiPirate Tchèque

nouvelobs.com/europe/2021120…
En France, le terme pirate fait peur et rappelle une certaine idée de l'illégalité. C'est probablement la première cause de notre impopularité. Pourtant, le #PartiPirate est une force tranquille qui favorise les initiatives et l'expression de chacun sur tous les sujets.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"
kreis-vg.de Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)

People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.

Prague's most "Cold" dream :

There is too much to write about the beauty of #Prague, but is "beauty" the most appropriate word to describe Prague?
Mysterious, chaotic, ridiculous and fantasy-filled, this city built by the #Vltava river is one of three magical and incredible cities in Europe, and the other two are #Turin and #Lyon. Of course, it also has a cute charm, but this kind of cute charm has a wicked evil spirit.
the #Czech Republic is a fairy tale kingdom, then #Prague in winter is a dreamland in fairy tales, and it is impossible to refuse such charm, which is why one must go to Prague in winter.

On December 12, 1944, Regina Jonas is murdered in #Auschwitz. To date, the #world's #first #woman who worked as a #rabbi. Regina Jonas was in her early 40s when she was #murdered in #Auschwitz. She belongs to the "#Masorti" movement,
the traditional but not #orthodox current in #Judaism. She was born in August 1902 as the daughter of an #Orthodox #Jewish peddlers in Berlin's barn district. Jonas is deported to #ghetto #Theresienstadt north of #Prague on November 1942.
During the #Shoah, Jonas in #Theresienstadt encourages her fellow prisoners. On December 12, 1944, she is murdered in the #exterminationcamp #Auschwitz. The knowledge of the fate of Regina Jonas is due to a Protestant theologian, the German Katharina von Kellenbach.

The taller the building, the wider the street, the less chance there is of a community forming. Alienation, loss of purpose, misery, follows. If we want cities that gives humans a chance, we need to build for the #HumanScale: low buildings, streets for pedestrians. #Beijing
Cities built to the #HumanScale naturally attracts tourists. No matter how messy they look. Clothes hanging out to dry is an indicator of a healthy neighborhood: the street belongs to the people living there. #Hanoi
Streets can be #HumanScaled and beautiful and necessary, but they are still a bit like "corridors". The best "streets" are the ones that double as places: squares, markets, nooks to rest and hang out. To meet friends and gawk at strangers. #Prague

The #Hungarian gvt once again blocks the publication of @coe #GRECO report on #corruption in Hungary! The only other such country is Belarus.

Instead of helping uncover #corruption, #Orbán conceals any news related to it.

hu.euronews.com/2019/06/25/a-m…
But recent news show that people in #Istanbul ultimately grew tired of the #authoritarian regime & people in #Prague massively mobilized along concerns of #corruption.

Discontent in #Hungary is growing too and we want to give a voice to those who are left aside by the #regime.
Nice promise but will the #government's words translate into actions? In any case, I'm really curious about what an #ActionPlan of the #Orbán administration to fight #Corruption can look like!

News Analysis 🔎 | The author of the #SteeleDossier told a @StateDept official that his client wanted allegations against Trump out before elections, and claimed #Russia had an agent planted in @DNC.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/memo-shows-ste…
A recently released @StateDept memo revealed that #SteeleDossier author #ChristopherSteele met with Kathleen Kavalec, then-deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs, on Oct. 11, 2016—10 days prior to the @FBI obtaining a #FISA warrant on Carter Page.
Noted in a May 10 letter by Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC to @SecPompeo & IG #Horowitz: “Ms. Kavalec’s contacts with Steele may have been the most significant and memorialized communications with him by a U.S. government official prior to the issuance of the Carter Page FISA warrant.”
