It’s early morning, still dark, and I’m off to London 🇬🇧 for @RANDEurope ⁩ meetings and discussions during the day. Much research of interest has been done since our last meeting.

Here USBradley fighting vehicles are on their way through PL to UA . Soon there will follow the even more powerful CV90 fighting vehicles from SE . These will give entire units radically new capabilities.

There were and are solid reasons for increasing cooperation between SE and TR in fighting terrorism as agreed, but now TR instead prefers to blow up despicable actions by fringe extremists in a way that is to the benefit of no one except these fringe extremists.

It’s very difficult to see why the DE government is putting itself in a corner so dramatically the way it’s doing on the issue of Leopard tanks to UA .

In the 1994 tragedy no less than 854 people lost their life’s when the ferry Estonia sunk during a stormy night on the Baltic Sea. A new authoritative official report out today dismissed all conspiracy theories of the years since then, but says that the ferry wasn’t seaworthy.

Nothing on tanks has been announced yet, but if you add up what’s rumored on Leopard’s DE and Abraham’s’ US with the CV90’sSE and Bradley’s US it looks like 2-4 UA armored brigades. That’s something, although a lot of training is needed to make them effective fighting units.

An UA interception rate of 85% of the incoming RU missiles isn’t perfect, but it’s still fairly good. And now it’s old Soviet missies that are being used by RU - not the more modern ones we saw earlier in the war.

With desperation in the voice, this most aggressive of RU media propaganda megaphones is now calling for the use of nuclear weapons in order to avoid a RU defeat that he seems to fear. This war will get more dangerous before it comes to an end.

If they were to watch this in the KremlinRU they might start to understand what they are up against UA .

Putin has obviously suppressed any memory of this, but these are the numbers for the Yes vote in the 1991 referendum in UA on independence. Every single region voted clearly for independence.

Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.

Great to see the women of IR fighting for their rights! You will win - sooner or later!

It’s indisputable that RU is using indiscriminate artillery and rocket fire against civilian targets in cities in UA . These photos from the center of the country’s second largest city shows clearly what is happening.

Incredible. Now Berlusconi IT defending his friend said that “Putin just wanted to replace the Zelensky government with a government of decent people.” This man is a disgrace.

I don’t know what the RU ambassador to KZ really said, but the rebuttal he got was certainly most powerful.

There are photos that will be with us for a long time.

We have no right to ignore what’s said on RU state TV these days. This unfortunately has all the potential for getting much worse.

Now there is a publicity campaign in MoscowRU saying that SE is a country of Nazis. Are there any limits to these guys? Or are they preparing a ”denazifying” operation against SE as well? I think this will further solidify support for SE joining @NATO .
