@sumlenny: Russia shells residential areas in Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities. Civilians are got killed or wounded. Russia wipes out Ukraine, terrorises Ukrainian civilians and eliminates their identity. Ukraine must be able to attack Russian territory: airbases, military units, warehouses.

@muyixiao: From iris scans to voice prints, phone tracking to DNA data, the Chinese authorities’ appetite for personal data is growing.

Our latest visual investigation — drawing from over 100k documents — reveals new details of the data-hungry surveillance state.

@kamilkazani: It's not gonna be open, idealistic and collective action that gonna destroy the Russian Federation. To the contrary, it gonna be the silent, pragmatic and individual actions by elites. Such as the growing economic protectionism of regions, breaking the national economic cohesion https://t.co/NQBG5YktiI

@kajakallas: To hold perpetrators accountable, Ukraine must win back its territories and Russia must fail.

We must do all we can to help push back the Russian invasion and end massive war crimes on our doorstep.

Otherwise, worse will follow. This is what Estonian history teaches us. 3/7

@kamilkazani: What information can we draw from the Russian freight market data? First of all, we are seeing as the enormous country is gradually losing its cohesion. Consider that all three means of transport: airways, automobiles and even the railways are heavily import dependent https://t.co/KL9gMDS1oj

@archaeologyart: The Papyrus Fresco from the Room of the Ladies from the house of the same name, Akrotiri, Thera. Papyrus is not indigineous to Thera and therefore suggests that the Cycladic artists were borrowing iconography from elsewhere, perhaps Egypt or Minoan Crete. https://t.co/Pc0G2N0Cxb

In theory, pausing conflict is good.
In practice, especially in Myanmar, it's often co-opted by violent oppressors to further their military goals. Conflict in Rakhine would effectively 'fix' Tatmadaw units currently murdering civilians & burning villages.

@kamilkazani: All the proposals to reform Russia without radically decentralising it are futile, even if well-intentioned. The political and economic structure of Russia should be scaled down radically so that its population can be enfranchised and liberated from the hunter gatherers

@jasonhickel: BREAKING: New research published in Nature Food shows that a transformative degrowth policy approach is needed to make the global food system emissions neutral, and that this would *improve* nutritional outcomes.

@Arthistorian18: This tall standing bodhisattva (Gandhāra), 72 cm or 28 ⅜ in high, dressed and bejeweled in the Indian style, evoking at the same time the nobility of ancient Greco-Roman statues. It is dated from the 2nd-4th centuries and traditionally made of schist.

@kamilkazani: Those conscripted bumpkins may have little interest in complex logical constructs. But they absolutely do have agency and self-interest. Also they have guns. Also there is almost half a million of them. Ergo, their position means everything and that of intellectuals - nothing

@TrentTelenko: This is a long and very useful thread by @kamilkazani on the realities of Putin trying a mass mobilization, Western inability to see Russia as it really is, plus the culturally trained lack of individual agency in the Russian people.

@kamilkazani: Right now I estimate the probability of a *successful* mass revolt in Russia as close to zero. In case of the mass mobilisation however, it gonna skyrocket. You'll have tons of armed people with an immediate self-interest in overthrowing the regime. That's the scenario of 1917

@kamilkazani: Apart from defeating Putin and establishing a weak peace to be broken by the next Tsar, we must work on re-enfranchising the Russian population. The first thing to do is to give voice to the unheard, especially from the regionalist movements, in the Far East, in Siberia, in Urals
