I spent two days in Mykolaiv, Ukraine last week. It is cynically shelled most days by the Russians and over 148 civilians have been killed. There has been no mains drinking water since March either - but the defiance of the residents is remarkable --> theguardian.com/world/2022/nov…

This is a particularly thorny diplomatic dispute: Ukraine’s supplies of anti aircraft shells are critically low. Germany has a stockpile. But Switzerland, which made them, has a veto on their re-sale or donation. And it refuses to drop it. @FT on.ft.com/3Uu733R

The colleague said that Giammaria had a “funny accent” that reminded him of Russian, but he could not “exactly place it." Giammaria’s behaviour had raised suspicion, the source said, and he once made a joke to Giammaria, asking him whether he was a spy theguardian.com/world/2022/oct…
A second colleague who has closely worked with Giammariao described him as a “friendly” colleague although they added that he was extremely protective of his privacy. “At the same time, he asked a lot of questions, including questions of personal nature as well.” With @jonhenley
“What is interesting, if not ironic, is that we research how the civilian domain is targeted by hybrid threats. I did not expect I would be part of exactly what we research,” said Gunhild Hoogensen Gjørv, a professor in security studies at the university who hired Giammaria
NEW: We have identified the man claiming to be a Brazilian academic whom it suspects of being a Russian spy as Jose Assis Giammaria. Two of his colleagues at the University of Tromsø said that Giammaria has been detained and his office searched. theguardian.com/world/2022/oct…
