Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin had two telephone conversations with two leaders of conditionally "friendly" countries. Both yesterday's interlocutors of the Russian president are tall and were born in the same year.
#Putin spoke twice last week with both, but the reasons were different. On Sunday, the #Russian president congratulated #Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdogan on his birthday and had a short conversation, checking his mood and promising to be a reliable partner.
With Alexander #Lukashenko, #Putin discussed yesterday's incident at the Machulishchi military airfield near Minsk, as a result of which one of the #Russian military aircraft was damaged. Lukashenko tried to find out the reaction and plans of the Russian president.

Last yr #UkraineWar became the organizing principle of Russian foreign policy

➡️7 trends
1 Full turn to non-West
2 China’s junior partner
3 Less leverage vis middle powers
4 Struggle in the neighbourhood
5 Russia MFA sidelined
6 Wagner normalized
7 End of compartmentalization
1. Full turn to the non-West:
Judging its break with the West to be total & irreversible, Russia's leadership has intensified its (pre-existing) turn to #MENA, #Africa, #LATAM, #Asia-Pacific.

Shunned & sanctioned, Russia needs to make up for losses wherever it can... (2/22)
This year, Lavrov already visited 8 African states, Iraq, & hosted Pakistani & Egyptian FMs.

Russia's push to expand engagement does resonate.

#Ukraine/#Russia 🇺🇦🇷🇺:

The 🇳🇱#Netherlands and the 🇨🇿#Czechia are currently preparing two other projects in the field of air defence and artillery for 🇺🇦#Ukraine.

Thread🧶 1/x

@oryxspioenkop @Rebel44CZ @secretsqrl123 @ukraine_map @OSINTua @UAWeapons @LivFaustDieJung
I think the projects will go in the same direction as the current rebuild of 90 T-72 tanks or the production of 115 MR-2 systems. That is, the production and coordination of the projects will be done in 🇨🇿#Czechia, while the 🇳🇱#Netherlands will largely finance the projects.

Now let's see what anti-aircraft systems the 🇨🇿#Czech Republic can offer:

1) Production of additional MR-2 systems.

The MR-2 is a very short-range anti-aircraft system designed primarily to shoot down 🇮🇷#Iranian Shahed-136 (Geran-2) drones.

There was uproar in #France when the city of #Strasbourg agreed to pay €2.5m towards the construction of a new #mosque by a radical #Turkish #Islamist organization in 2021. But who is #MilliGorus and what are their aims? A thread by #theHELC 1/10
Millî Görüş ("National Vision") is a religious-political movement that found expression in a series of #Islamist parties culminating in #Erdogan’s AKP. It argues that Turkey can develop as a rival to the West, by protecting its core values and trusting in God 2/10
The beginning of the movement dates to a manifesto published in 1969 by Necmettin #Erbakan, the Islamist politician who later became prime minister. Erbakan called for #PanIslamism and warned against the ‘#Zionist and Catholic project’ of the European Common market 3/10

#Turkey has requested the extradition of people living in Sweden. The decision is a matter for the Swedish courts. Other concessions from Ankara are arms deliveries. There is no formal ban on arms exports to Turkey, but in practice there is. 1/3

🆘 Relatives informed us about a group stranded on an islet on #Evros river. The position they sent shows the people on #Greek territory. On the phone, the border guard station of #Soufli promised a quick rescue. We have no direct contact with the group & hope help is on its way! Image
The officer on duty of the border guard station in #Soufli told us on the phone that they have sent a team to the location but could not find the people. In the past, this line was used to cover up #pushbacks. We are worried - where are these people?
The people called us directly today & appear to be on the Greek bank of #Evros river. They report they are ~40 people incl. 10 children & 16 women, many with serious medical conditions. They say that 2 persons went missing during a #pushback & a woman could give birth any moment.

#Ukraine/#Russia 🇺🇦🇷🇺:

Since 2014, there have been many vehicle modifications on both sides on the #Ukrainian battlefield. One of the most frequently modified vehicles is the MT-LB, originally intended as an artillery tractor.

@oryxspioenkop @CalibreObscura


1/ Image
Of course, many mass-produced vehicles were built on the MT-LB chassis, such as the 9k35 Strela-10, the 9P149 Shturm-S, or the 2S1 Gvozdika.

2/ Strela-10Shturm-S2S1 Gvozdika
Since the beginning of the war in #Donbas, soldiers have been forced to use the MT-LB for tasks other than those for which it was intended. They used it, and still do, for example as an APC. They immediately began to feel the weakness of the vehicle's firepower and armour.

🧵My latest: Turkey's first nuclear plant built and financed by subsidiary of #Russia's Rosatom will be operational in 2023. Under the agreement, Moscow may establish a commercial port in #Turkey with likely national and international security implications…
2. The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant is located in a highly strategic location, some 200km from Cyprus and #NATO’s Kurecik early-warning radar station as well as near the Syrian border. It bills itself as the “biggest project in the history of #Russian-#Turkish relations"
3. While an original agreement for the construction was signed in 2010 between Akkuyu Nukleer (Rosatom subsidiary) and the Turkish firm IC Ictas, it was later on terminated and a new one was signed in July 2022 for TSM (owned by 3Russia-based firms) to undertake remaining work.

1. I've looked at the documents, noting that the July 5th Accession document does not appear to be online, and I see no argument based the NATO Treaty language that supports a view that the US does not have a @NATO Art 5 obligation to both #Sweden and #Finland. Turkey agreed Image
2. to a unanimous "invitation" in Barcelona that was the only thing the Treaty requires. It says nothing about ratification. Erdogan & Orban, both allied with the war criminal Putin, have yet to approve the protocols. We should not let these two anti-democratic corrupt autocrats
3. control NATO. The US is the force that brings safety to members from #Kremlin aggression by being a counterbalance to the #Russian strategic missile forces. That is what makes NATO work more than any other factor. We cannot tolerate #Oban and #Erdogan
