1/ Voltaire has a famous phrase “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”. Atrocities like #Kremenchuk are happening. Therefore, we need to talk about the absurdities. We do this to understand the Russian invasion of #Ukraine #StandWithUkraine Image
2/ It is important to address and debunk the absurdities that poison the public conversation. For the particular case of the Russian invasion, there is one absurdity that I want to highlight. The idea that Russia is still some kind of superpower. Ridiculous and widespread idea.
3/ There is no way around this. Russia is NOT a superpower. Moreover, let me argue that Russia would have never invaded Ukraine if this “Russia is still a superpower” meme was less prevalent. Lets analyze what makes a superpower and whether Russia classifies as one.

1/ Just as thanks go to #Putin for injecting life into @NATO, kudos to #SergeyLavrov for giving the kiss of death today to #OpenBalkan. This #Trump Administration brainchild advances the agenda of #Russia’s strategic partner in the region, #Serbia, under @avucic. 🧵
2/ #Russia’s main outlet in the country, Sputnik Serbia @rs_sputnik, has supported #OpenBalkans consistently. And why not?
3/ #OpenBalkan is open invitation for #Vucic to exploit #Serbia’s economic size for political advantage – free from political constraints or values of #EU. #OpenBalkan = ‘Serb World’ via the marketplace for Serbia’s smaller neighbors.

🧵Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has swiftly changed the security landscape of Europe. And as our own @ckafura lays out in @Diplomat_APAC, the war has also opened up a debate in Japan. For #ThreadThursday, we take a look at that debate:
The war in #Ukraine has prompted a much different reaction from Japan than past international crises. Since February, #Japan has imposed broad and escalating economic #sanctions on Russia in coordination with G-7 allies.…
The stronger Japanese response to this crisis is not solely driven by policymakers, but also by the public’s reaction to the war in Ukraine. In @nikkei polling, 61% favored sanctioning #Russia– 2x what polls found after Russia annexed #Crimea in 2014 📊⬇️

Eight weeks ago at exactly this time, #Russia launched its first bombs on peaceful #Ukraine

The bombardment never lets up. Even as I type missiles are fired and some get through air defences.
But the ground war is where this war will be won

Day 56 - welcome to the daily thread:
Last night I reported on sounds from #Kharkiv, while now #Mykolaiv is receiving a pounding from the skies too, but anti-aircraft fire heard too.

No further details yet, guess we will have to wait until the morning, til light and the end of the curfew to survey the damage.
Speaking of curfews... what happens when officers catch someone?
Well this was captured on film in #Kyiv late in the evening.

If you're not deemed a saboteur or a threat, it's possible they'll make you do some exercises, push-ups or like here - squats!

Monday. Day 47 of #Russia's illegal and dirty war on #Ukraine with more and more executed civilians being found and rape allegations piling up.

Overnight bombing raids and fighting in the east continued.

All the details in the daily 🧵 updated throughout the day
The attack on transport continues with more Russian missiles targeted on railways during the night.

The Head of Railways released only this photo, while admitting 5 locomotives had been damaged along with some tracks. Thankfully no deaths or injuries. Locations not revealed.
#Ukraine also has Intelligence saying #Russia will attack road connections soon too to further limit supply lines.

With Russia's army massed in the east and south near the Russian border (or the puppet states) in all cases, their supply lines are far easier than in 1st phase

What is Asia buying from #Russia🇷🇺?

Reactions towards 🇷🇺’s WAR against #Ukraine🇺🇦🌻 have been mixed in the #AsiaPacific.

#Japan🇯🇵, #SouthKorea🇰🇷, #Singapore🇸🇬 & #Taiwan🇹🇼 have joined in the Western-led sanctions effort.

But the two global giants, #India🇮🇳 and #China🇨🇳 have refused to condemn 🇷🇺.

Asia is geographically far away from the conflict and suffering less economic turbulence than Europe, which has complex economic links to 🇷🇺 and is heavily reliant on its energy & raw materials. 2/
Some Asian countries, like #India🇮🇳, even benefit from the WAR🇷🇺 economically as it goes on buying crude oil🇷🇺 at discounted prices. India has also refused to condemn Russia – its biggest supplier of arms – and is still keeping trade ties intact.

Pire, alors le nombre de cas s'effondre, le nombre de décès atteint les sommets Image
#Iceland : malgré 79% de vaccinés, 99% chez les adultes, 70% de 3ème dose, le nombre de décès n'a jamais été aussi élevé...
Rappelons que l'Islande gérait très bien la #COVID19 avant la vaccination avec très peu de décès...
#LesVaccinsSontTotalementInefficaces Image
#SouthKorea, c'est la cata : l'un des pays les plus vacciné au monde, à 87%, 99,9% des adultes injectés, donc ici pas question de #NonVaccinés : il y a 6 fois plus de morts après vaccination qu'avant.

Here is the #Covid19 round up for Wednesday. All the facts which matter in one handy thread.

Starting with the recently published #UK figures which show a surprisingly large fall in cases, bucking the recent trend of smaller reductions...
Wednesday is usually the day with the highest newly reported #Covid19 cases in the #UK, but numbers are down today, indeed by 27%.

However, I believe it's probably a blip and we may see higher numbers tomorrow and/or Friday.

But Covid deaths continue to fall. From 199 to 164
Looking at new #Covid19 cases by country within the #UK, good to see Scotland falling again.

#England 29,703 (-30.5%)
#NIreland 2,294 (-20.6%)
#Scotland 6,756 (-9.3%)
#Wales 903(-19.7%)

Tuesday's #Covid19 thread starts here. The arguments still raging in the #UK about "Living with Covid" following the announcement from the govt. that infected people no need to isolate from Thursday.

All the important data and news updated in this thread throughout the day
However I am commentating on tennis again today; 3 matches, long day.

I do try to reply all your queries but @SimonCalder here answers many that I'm repeatedly asked, using his judgement on the regular Q "when will xxxxland drop testing requirements?"…
#UK's figures today show another slowdown in the falling numbers with only 6.6% fewer new #Covid19 cases than at this time last week.

And big differences in the different countries:
#England 30,080 (-17.5%)
#NIreland 2,951 (-1.2%)
#Scotland 6,427 (+10.7%)
#Wales 1,672 (+81%)
