10. And here you can find a list of some other verified initiatives: sharethetruths.org/how-to-support…?
These links were provided by @sumlenny, I'm planning to post similar threads later. For now I want to stress that buying literally anything Ukrainian right now will support its efforts by keeping the country's economy afloat. Hiring Ukrainian freelancers could be a great idea
Up to 10 million people are currently displaced in Ukraine and many have nowhere to return as their home towns were destroyed or will be destroyed very soon. Pumping Ukrainian freelancers will money will help, as it gonna create jobs for many more people by stimulating the demand
That was Part 1, other parts gonna follow. End of thread

Many thanks to everyone who donated yesterday! The military and the volunteers who are helping them already got significant contributions . One reaction:

"We have got $1200 within 2 hrs, are shocked and already buying headsets, uniform parts etc. We are thankful unlimitedly"
This help is more important than many presume. Much of the Ukrainian armed forces are essentially the citizen levy, like the territorial defence. For example Borden Markovskyi used to work as a recruitment lead in a software company before the war started linkedin.com/in/bohdan-mark…
You can read his account with google translate. Much of the territorial defence is decentralised acting as the guerrilla troops. They know what equipment/clothes/medicine they need much better than the central command does. You can donate them directly

This article by David Johnson raises an important question of whether the US defence community underestimated the Russian military capacities. It's a good article. Some observations are very astute, while others lack the context and may be misleading. Let's discuss it🧵 Image
David Johnson points out to the Ukrainian leadership carefully selecting and censoring the information in order to create & reinforce the positive narrative. That's correct. And that indeed created a certain bias in reporting the course of this war Image
For Ukraine to get any help it needed to persuade others it can survive at least the initial Russian offensive. Which it did. The belief in the Ukrainian defeat could have become a self-fulfilling prophecy. If they fall in two weeks, there's no need to send heavy weaponry

Russian regionalist Media «7x7. Horizontal Russia» compiled a map of attacks on the military commissariats (draft & recruiting stations) all over Russia from Feb 24 to May 31, 2022. Unlike most of what passes for "liberal Russian media" in the West, this one isn't based in Moscow
«7x7. Horizontal Russia» was established in the northern Komi republic. Having expanded to dozens of Russian regions it still keeps its regional focus. They do massive work on the ground that remains virtually unnoticed in the West semnasem.org
I'm inclined to think that the focus of Western journalists, politicians and (let's be honest) researchers on everything Moscow-related at the expense of the rest of the country is motivated not only by their implicit biases or prejudices but also by simple laziness

Native Siberians and North Caucasians* are hugely overrepresented among the Russian casualties in Ukraine. Consider these estimates of the Free Buryatia Foundation. It looks like Russia is ready to fight till the last indigenous person, solving two problems at once
* There is however an exception in the North Caucasus. It is Chechnya. Compare two neighbouring regions Chechnya and Dagestan. Chechnya has 1,5 million people, Dagestan has 3,1 million. Despite being just about 2 times more populous than Chechnya it has 40 times more casualties
What does it mean?

1. Dagestanis fight in the regular Russian army, comprising disproportionate number of troops and of casualties in Ukraine
2. Chechens do *not* fight in the regular Russian army. Whatever badges they have, it doesn't matter. They're the Kadyrov's personal army

Many thanks to my donors some of whom have been *outrageously* generous. Your support allowed me to bring my work on another level. I was able to build a team with very narrow and specific expertises. We are now preparing an investigative material which gonna be groundbreaking🧵
Still, I need cash. I need cash to pay salaries and to buy data. Some key pieces of information I need are aggregated in materials that are absolutely open for sale, publicly and legally. They just cost hella lot. So, I'll be grateful for your support
At this point I accept donations predominantly by crypto:

A military recruitment station in the very centre of St Petersburg, on the Palace Square. Inflatable Strelkov is inviting passerbys to sign an army contract. What is important here is that it is happening in the second largest city. Which means Russia is running off of manpower🧵
The Palace Square is located between the Winter Palace and the General Staff HQ (yellow). That's the very heart of St Petersburg, the second largest and most important city in the country. Moscow and St Petersburg are viewed as two capitals and have special place within Russia
Since the start of the war, the Russian authorities tried to expend provincials, most importantly South Siberians (Buryatia, Tuva) and Dagestanis, but saving the people from Moscow and St Petersburg. That explains a heavy imbalance in the casualties in Ukraine by region
