Russian and Ukrainian languages. Thread
As a Ukrainian, one of the most often questions people asked me before the war was about the language. Is Russian and Ukrainian the same? How do you know Russian? Are they similar? Image
Before answering these questions, first, let's look at the historical background.
The Russian language arrived in Ukraine only in the middle of the 17th century (Pereiaslav Agreement). Before that, no one spoke Russian there. /1
At that time, Russian-speaking soldiers and merchants from the Moscow tsarist empire were settled in Ukraine for the first time. /2

As I predicted: "The progress was notable, but the introduction of superior Western systems has not brought radical changes in Russian superiority. Russian artillery is still extremely overwhelming and deadly." #Ukraine #UkraineWar #Russia #UkraineRussia…
"Russia's numerical superiority, and its endless munitions stock ... have had a devastating effect on the course of the war... The disproportion between the number of Russian and Ukrainian pieces deployed to a particular front line area can go as far as 10 to 1." #Ukraine #Russia

In an article denouncing on-going Russian investigations into Ukrainian captives for "crimes against peace," @NYTimes correspondent @MarcSantoraNYT offers a full-throated tribute to the fascist Azov Battalion. He writes: 1/ #UkraineRussia #Nazi
"Those being investigated include members of the Azov regiment, who are widely regarded as heroes in Ukraine for holding out for weeks underneath a Mariupol steel plant as Russian forces bombarded the city at the end of one of the bloodiest battles of the war." 2/
Though acknowledging that the Azov Battalion "started out as a far-right militia" which "is now part of the Ukrainian National Guard," Santora, contradicting himself, denounces Russia's "unfounded claims about the influence of Nazism in the country." 3/

1. While our national debt stands at more than thirty trillion dollars, our country goes under, and Joe Biden maintains crooked investments, our government will now give $1,700,000,000.00 to the Ukraine.…
2. Meanwhile, Biden has deliberately created the gas shortage, by ending the pipeline, not granting new leases, and cutting us off from Russian oil, while he depletes our national reserve….…

Det kan virke som om norske myndigheter fortsatt befinner seg i en fordums tid med utdaterte utenrikspolitiske hensyn som tas overfor Russland.
Det må endres. Russland må stoppes. De fortjener ikke vår respekt.
… en 🇺🇦🇷🇺TRÅD
Norge har siden krigen startet misbrukt nær sagt alle muligheter til å si tydelig fra at vi kommer til å bruke våre muskler til å sørge for at Ukraina vinner og Russland taper. /2
I stedet har vi tatt alle anledninger som har kommet til å hinte til Russland at vi «forstår» dem og vært forsiktige slik at vi ikke «sårer». Sist, absurd nok, ville vi ikke hjelpe sårede ukrainske soldater av den grunn. /3

"Since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, cable news networks have routinely called on defense officials-turned-consultants to offer analysis and help the American public make sense of the crisis."

Fransız ve İtalyan enerji devleri ENGIE ve ENI Rusya'dan aldıkları gazı ruble ile ödemeyi kabul ettiler. ENGIE'nin %33'ü Fransız devletine, ENI'nin %30'u İtalyan devletine ait. Yani özel(!) şirketler vasıtasıyla Avrupa kendi koyduğu ambargoyu deliyor.
Oysa Avrupa Komisyonu'na göre Rus para biriminde hesap açmak yaptırımların ihlalidir ve Brüksel tarafından cezai işlemlere yol açar. Yani Avrupalılar Putin'i soykırım dahil her türlü insanlık suçu ile itham ederken Rusya'dan gaz almak için GazpromBank'ta ruble hesabı açıyorlar.

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- Ukr. Vertreter nennen Zeitraum für eine mögliche "Gegenoffensive";
- Bundesregierung will Panzerhaubitzen an ukr. Truppen liefern, "Super-Radare" könnten folgen;
- Moskau treibt Integration der besetzten Gebiete voran.
Neuer Thread 👇
Der ukr. Präsidentenberater Arestowitsch hält eine ukrainische "Gegenoffensive" im Juni-Juli für möglich.
Hierfür müssten aber schwere Waffen aus dem Westen zunächst an der Front ankommen, sodass man "mehrere ausgerüstete, gut koordinierte Brigaden zusammenstellen" kann.
Einige ukr. Portale meldeten zuvor, dass eine solche "Gegenoffensive" bereits begonnen habe.
Arestowitsch dementierte dies und erklärte, dass das aktuelle Vorrücken der ukr.Truppen bei #Charkiw wegen der lokalen Dimension nicht als eine "Gegenoffensive" bezeichnet werden kann.

Update #Ukraine .
Die Waffenlieferungen an #Kiew werden weiter angekurbelt. Militärexperten und Medien bezeichnen sie mittlerweile als "beispiellos".
Dennoch warnen USA: "die Zeit ist nicht auf ukrainischer Seite".
#Biden beantragt weitere Rekordsummen.
Thread 👇
Die Waffenlieferungen an die #Ukraine nehmen rasant zu.
Ein Dutzend Länder schickt mittlerweile auch schwere Waffen an die ukr.Truppen.
In Deutschland wurde der entsprechende Beschluss gestern offiziell vom Bundestag verabschiedet.
Die Entscheidung fiel aber schon vorher.
Zur Erinnerung.
Schon Tage zuvor wurde bekannt, dass Deutschland Flugabwehrpanzer #Gepard in die #Ukraine schicken wird.
Die Industrie fordert zudem die Lieferung von insgesamt über 100 Kampfpanzern vom Typ Leopard 1 und 2.

Update #Ukraine .
Heute soll es um zwei größere Themen gehen.
1: Die Lage rund um #Transnistrien :
- ukr. Vertreter drohen mit einer Intervention,
- Einberufung von Reservisten,
- Raketenangriffe auf Brücken.
2: Russischer Gaslieferstopp nach Polen und Bulgarien.
Die Lage rund um die selbst erklärte Republik #Transnistrien bleibt weiterhin extrem angespannt.
Zur Erinnerung:
Anfang der Woche ereigneten sich dort gleich mehrere Anschläge:
- auf das Ministerium für Staatssicherheit,
- Radioantennen,
- Militärbasis.
Später ist auch ein Video von Überwachsungskameras aufgetaucht, wie sich der Anschlag auf das Ministerium für Staatssicherheit ereignete.
Wie auch vermutet, wurde das Gebäude mit Granatenwerfern beschossen.
Hier einige Screenshots.
Das Video findet ihr bei mir auf Telegram

Virtual #Russia - #Ukraine peace talks resumed yesterday: "According to Meduza's sources, who are familiar with the course of negotiations (from both the #Russian and #Ukrainian sides), several preliminary agreements were "concretized." #UkraineWar 1/…
"Two agreements are currently being discussed:
the first agreement, a political one, on the neutral, non-nuclear status of Ukraine and the security guarantees that the guarantor countries will have to provide...
and the second about "mutual respect for cultures..."

"Most important issue of the post-war borders of Ukraine has not yet been resolved. “There is an article in the agreement that the guarantor countries guarantee security within the borders of Ukraine, indicated on the map. The map is in the appendix. And it's not ready yet.” 3/

An easy place to start cataloguing the cost of a war is in military hardware. We will take a sample from the hard work of @oryxspioenkop each day to begin to show some of the overheads of warfare.

#UkraineRussiaWar #TankOfTheDay Image
@oryxspioenkop #TankOfTheDay 1. The T-64 tank was famously expensive in its day, costing 143,000 Rubles in 1973 (approx $408k today). This T-64BV was destroyed on 03/16/2022.

💸 Total: $408k

#RussiaUkraineWar Image
@oryxspioenkop #TankOfTheDay 2. The T-72B is estimated to cost in the region of $2m based on historic Russian exports. Here we have one that was destroyed on 02/26/2022.

💸 Total: $2,408k

Ivan Katchanovski, a Ukrainian political scientist at the University of Ottawa, says that there are neo-Nazi elements in Ukraine, and though they are a tiny proportion of the population, they have played an “outsized role” in political and military affairs…
“That is a gift to Russian propaganda, that these groups were not dealt with before,” says Professor Katchanovski. “Neo-Nazis are a relatively small segment of Ukraine, but the fact that they are integrated in the Ukrainian armed forces and tolerated by Zelenskyy is a problem. 2/
My @csmonitor interview: "These right-wing groups are real enough, but the [Kremlin] claim about Nazis in the Ukrainian government and army as a pretext for this illegal invasion of Ukraine is basically false.” #Ukraine️ #ukrainewar #RussiaUkraineWar #UkraineRussia #Russia 3/
