#Czechs have spoken. The new 🇨🇿 #president for the next 5Y will be Petr #Pavel, a retired general, former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (2015-2018), and strongly pro-Atlanticist defender of liberal-democratic values. ✌️🦁

Thread 🧵
Pavel defeated Andrej Babiš, a wealthy businessman, frmr PM (2017-2021), who led an aggressive populist campaign and brought up the Russian war against Ukraine as a key issue. Babiš called for „peace“ and accused the retired general of being a warmonger. 2/9
What happened in🇨🇿—discussion between a defender of continued support for🇺🇦 & those who are more reluctant (similar to Hungary’s Orbán or some republicans in the US)—is instructive for future electoral contests in Europe. 3/9

1) A recent interview with a Lebanese political figure exposed, once again, the failures of the current political rhetoric on the ongoing #economic crisis in #Lebanon. This rhetoric, which dominates public discourse, is not only outdated and futile, but also harmful
2) In the interview, Geagea stipulates that his party stands against the principle of “distribution of losses”, considering that no losses have occurred and that debt is accrued and should be repaid to depositors
3) He suggests that repaying this #debt should happen through state resources, simple fiscal adjustments, and support from the #GCC without the need for an IMF program

"Sectional feeling no longer holds back the love we feel for each other. The old flag again waves over us in peace with new glories.” Those words were spoken by #President #McKinley during a speech in #Atlanta #OTD in 1898 only four days after the end of the Spanish American War.
By 1898, the #LostCause narrative of the #CivilWar had made much headway in the minds of white Americans, North and South. The #JimCrow South was emerging by the late 19th century and was accompanied by a tidal wave of white supremacist terrorism.
McKinley's message of reunion was only meant for white Americans. Only a month earlier white terrorists violently overthrew #Wilmington, #NorthCarolina's biracial government, killing hundreds of Black Wilmingtonians in the process.

#OTD in 1862, #Confederate soldiers repulsed a massive #Union assault on the second day of the #Battle of #Fredericksburg. Wave after wave of Union soldiers were mowed down during a full frontal assault against Confederate troops positioned at Marye’s Heights. Image
After the Battle of #Antietam a few months earlier, General #McClellan allowed Lee's Army to retreat back to #Virginia to fight another day. #President #Lincoln then relieved McClellan of command and replace him with General Ambrose #Burnside. Image
Burnside quickly planned a fall offensive to move on #Richmond. However, the Union Army's operation faced logistical setbacks, allowing Lee to settle in at Fredericksburg. Burnside chose to attack Lee head on, a decision that proved disastrous.

It's Day 203 of the war. #Russia's inhuman, unprovoked, not to mention illegal war in #Ukraine.

The UN is powerless, some would say pointless. It's purely up to Ukraine and its' supporters to #StopPutin

Live updates in this 🧵, or catch up on y'day here

Big attack on the southern #Ukraine city of #Mykolaiv overnight.

The mayor has so far only said some private houses were hit. No news on casualties yet.

#Nikolaev #RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
Once again we've seen far fewer attacks than "normal" from #Russia in the last 12 hours. In fact it's newsworthy that there was not a single rocket fired on #Kharkiv overnight.

Starting from May 17, all reports to #Putin go through the Secretary of the #SecurityCouncil, #Patrushev. For most of the issues that require the permission or opinion of the president, the decision is now made personally by Patrushev and he informs Putin in his final report
1/5
Even the First Deputy Chief of the Presidential Administration, Sergei Kiriyenko, who traditionally has direct access to the #president, now reports to and receives assignments and recommendations from #Patrushev
2/5
Also, #Gerasimov, Putin's dismissed Chief of the General Staff, reported to #Patrushev yesterday, after telephone conversations with Mark Milley, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.
#Putin himself has held only two phone conversations personally since Tuesday

Turkish oppositional journalist Sedef Kabaş: "Sedef Kabaş is now free 🙏".

Today, a #Turkish #court has ordered the release of #journalist @SedefKabas who was jailed on Jan 22, 2022 on charges of "Insulting" the #President #Erdogan. (1/5)
On the oppositional TV channel @Tele1 she first quoted and then tweeted this Circassian proverb:

"A bull does not become king just by entering the palace, but the palace becomes a barn." (2/5)

This was taken by #Erdogan's propaganda chief Fahrettin Altun and the #Erdogan-dependent #Turkish judicial system as an insult to #President #Erdogan, who's an #autocrat, whereupon she was arrested. (3/5)

🚨#Elections2022 #lecandidat #MacronDehors 👎🏼
1/n L'indécence de la communication héroïque du Président 🇫🇷 candidat à sa réélection & doté du bilan qu'on lui sait, me pousse à faire 1 exception à la neutralité que je vise d'ordinaire.
il suffit !😡

2/n Je commencerai par le slogan #lecandidat.
Un temps surprenant, le message émis est pourtant limpide : il est sûr d'être LE seul candidat digne de diriger les enfants de 🇫🇷.
Cette pauvre France qui souffre temps (par la conséquences de quelles décisions au fait ?)... Image

🧵I’m both heartened and worried after just coming back from #Kyiv 🇺🇦, where @gmfus @ua_boell delegation, which I had a honor to lead, meet with key government officials, opposition, think tanks, and civil society. Here are few observations from the past days 👇
There is ZERO desire among Ukrainians to give in to Russian demands. They are determined and defiant. I don’t know what Putin is thinking, but the Ukrainian people are not going to accept a Moscow puppet government in Kyiv. If Putin’s decide to attack, Ukraine will make him pay.
Ukraine will fight, if need be. They don’t expect the West to do it for them - but they rightly expect help - both politically and when it comes to #weapons. Frustration with the #West in #Kyiv varies from moderate to extremely high.

Which is the greater military power: #PRC with 60,000 troops massed on India’s border(for ~2 years) or #RF with 100,000 troops massed on Ukraine border(for ~ 2 months)?
2/rus #Russian massing of troops around Ukraine is not just a message to #USA and #Europe, but also to #China and #India, not to write off its Military power & ability to use it; even though Russia’s economic power is now much less than that of USA, EU, China, India.🧐🤔
3/rus The #Russian’s have learned from the #PRC aggression against India in 2020, which rapidly lost credibility after Galwan. They have done everything to ensure that the threat of invasion is credible enough to achieve their coercive objectives without fighting.

THREAD on #Serbia and #Russia: President of #Serbia #aleksandarvučić is in #Sochi, #Russia to meet #Russia's President #VladimirPutin. The main talking point of the agenda, the price of Russian #gas for Serbia. #Serbia is entirely dependent on the import of Russian gas.
#Russia owns majority shares in NIS, Serbia's national oil and gas company, sold to Moscow below market price in 2008, in return for #Russia's protection in the #UN on #Kosovo and hoping that Moscow would construct now-defunct South Stream pipeline over Serbian territory.
The energy dependency was confirmed with the inauguration of the #TurkStream pipeline in 2021. In light of the ongoing energy crisis in Europe, the Serbian President fears the high gas prices for Serbia. The first reason is more immediate, the start of the heating season.
