Russian sources appear to be reorienting the debate about the attribution of responsibility for small-scale tactical gains in the #Bakhmut area to an ongoing offensive operation to capture the small, almost leveled settlement of #Marinka west of #Donetsk. Image
2/ Russian forces have struggled to advance in #Marinka and advanced less than 2km from 2014-controlled territory around Marinka since the start of the full-scale invasion of #Ukraine, suggesting that this entire conversation is premature.
3/ The capture of #Bakhmut, despite offering no operational advantages, did allow the #Kremlin to present a Russian victory, if only temporarily, to the Russian public.

1. Ukraine continues preparing for the offensive by attacking Russian oil facilities in #Krasnodar and military facilities in southern occupied areas.
For several days #Ukraine has attacked #Russianoilfacilities inflicting serious damage on one of Russia's largest refineries. Image
2. Ten strikes were conducted in recent days with about half of them successful and Ukraine has hit and reportedly damaged five facilities in the #Krasnodar region.

Ukraine released results of an earlier reported #StormShadow strike on #Yukivka between #Berdyansk & #Mariupol. Image
3. The strike was on Russian forces housed in a resort facility killing 100 Russian military personnel and wounding 40. Past reporting claimed targets of earlier strikes were high-value like pilots, SOF and Marines. ImageImage

I finally decided on next chapter of my history lessons. Very good example of how Russians will kill their own people for power. I read so many crazy theories that Americans did their 11/9 attack to false flag Iraq war. But this is actually real false flag.
Anna’s History Lesson - Part 7 - Active Measures- 1999 Bombings

1. In 1999 300 civilians were murdered in 3 Russian cities in attacks by terrorists who used same explosives and MO. Prime Minister Putin used these attacks to seize power he would have for 20+ years Image
2. And to start war on Chechnya and occupy Dagestan. After third attack on 13 September in Moscow, Duma Speaker announced that yet another attack had just happened in city of Volgodonsk. It had not. It would happen 3 days later. Attacks were all blamed on #Chechen separatists

Russia: We justify child abduction and trafficking war crimes now by pointing to monuments destroyed by American in 2003.

March 29 Assessment Highlight:

#Chechen Republic Head Ramzan #Kadyrov’s demonstrative response to an attack on a police station in Chechnya suggests that he may be concerned about the stability of his authoritarian rule. 1/ Image
Kadyrov published footage of himself, his 15-year-old son, and an entourage of Chechen officials and security personnel visiting the scene of the attack and inspecting the mangled bodies of the assailants. 2/
The fact that #Kadyrov’s response to the attack was so immediate and heavy-handed suggests that he is concerned about the potential for internal resistance within Chechnya to undermine his authoritarian rule of the autonomous republic. 3/

1/ it is quite interesting to note how diff countries would commemorate their mil "exploit" or losses and "value" them in their history.
Ru in 2000 lost a really large amount of paratroopers and other units, in famous last battle against #Chechen during a battle "776.0 heights"
2/ today they talk about it of course for very obvious reasons, to show that : 1- it is necessary for Ru troops to understand that entire units being wiped out is absolutely normal to achieve a small success...
3/ Also that it does not matter what is the name or value of the unit, you are just one little cog in the wheel and you are here to follow order and go only forward & if you are "brave" you don't listen to high command telling you its not possible (#Prigozhin is still pushing his

A year of the nine-year war (longread)

LONG-TIME APPEASEMENT (1991-2014). Due to the immense potential to destroy humanity, vast resources, and incurable optimism of the renaissance nations, 🇷🇺has been a prism through which the West has been looking at the nations in-between.
The brutal second #Chechen war, orchestrated by @putin to grip power, was hardly noticed. 🇷🇺was let in from the cold just a year after the invasion of #Georgia.
Contrary to common sense, the Kremlin was awarded more say in global affairs and even more role in #Europe, thanks to the Partnership for modernization Angela #Merkel had championed.

The #PutinHitler system of fear can’t solve its people problems.
Regime choice ist external distraction of opinion + internal destruction of people
#negotiate ignores that wars, not war serve its purpose.
#ukraine only more of the same.
Long #thread 1/22
Western approval ratings used by #Russia at gunpoint explains the repeated requirement for wars, not war.
Not external factors, as #negotiate likes to make believe.
Reason to stop war will not work for a system, which needs to start wars and only stops to prepare for the next. 2
#negotiate speak in terms of resources & solutions omits, it requires a productive system to work for output. All #terrorists systems quickly deteriorate to their single core asset, which is fear, not productivity. #Russia is the mother of fear, fed by western appeasement. 3/22

A new week, week 49 of #Russia's war and Day 341 since #Putin took the illegal decision to invade a peaceful neighbour.

Here's another daily thread with all the news as #Ukraine fights for its very survival.

Here's the link to yesterday's thread:

Frist an update on #Russia's direct hit on an apartment block in #Kharkiv.

Remarkably so far the casualty figures are the same with one elderly woman killed and three other civilians injured.

Emergency services released these new photos of the disaster site.
Here's the British Intel briefing for Monday.
Under the radar mobilisation continues in #Russia:

AbdulHakim Shishani (#Chechen) - from fighting with Islamists in #Syria (on the picture he is with an Iranian fighter with very radical Jund Al Aqsa in Aleppo) to giving speeches in Ukraine. What is going on? (Spoiler: none actually knows). Thread 👇
1) AbdulHakim never fought with #ISIS, but he fought in operations with for example Jund Al Aqsa (very radical) &Al Nusra (terrorist group). And what he was doing for #ISIS is helping males escape to Idlib (I know several such folks &his own group members are not even hiding it).
2) He was also involved in kidnapping of a #British citizen in Idlib for ransom and had to even officially apologize for it (see picture). Two people from his group were arrested by HTS and at least one was let out several years later after a big bribe was paid (I talked to him).

1/19 “The most brutal crimes are committed by #Chechens. Inhuman cruelty is not a Russian tradition". The leader of the #Vatican Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Francis, aka #Pope of Rome) made a statement shocking in its falsity and abomination.
2/19 In an interview with #America Magazine, the Jesuit announced that, it turns out, "the most brutal crimes in #Ukraine are committed by #Chechens and Buryats, because inhuman cruelty is not a #Russian tradition."
3/19 At the same time, the #Catholic priest explained his unwillingness to directly accuse #Russia of invading #Ukraine by the fact that it is "already clear." And he tries "not to specify, so as not to offend ... It is not necessary that I put the name and surname."

Eight months ago today #Russia did what it promised the world it would not do, and invaded a peaceful country.

Over 100,000 deaths later, the fight to protect democracy and freedom continues. #Ukraine will prevail.

This is the daily news thread for Day 243 of #PutinsWar
Sorry for the late start, today's like my Sunday, including a lie-in!

Sunday itself was a crazy day with a lot of news and a bumper thread. If you want to catch up, scroll through here:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Day 243 is the day the #UK is likely to get a defacto new leader.

This month's Prime Minister will be Rishi Sunak. A poisoned chalice; I suspect Boris bides his time for a post-election-defeat leadership bid.

Sunak's been the least vociferous on #Russia but nothing will change

Truck bomb explodes while passing over #KerchBridge? So this was a suicide bombing? #Chechen jihadists?

Chechen jihadists back fighting #Putin in #Ukraine
Last time #Grozny was flattened. This is not good for #Kiev.
Potential suspects are Tartar jihadists.

It's Monday and I hope it's the start of a good week for you.

This is the daily thread number 215 with all the news from #Russia's war on #Ukraine

Now anyone who gives over £200 will receive a personal message of thanks from🇺🇦 soldiers on the frontline.…
Just to clarify, if you have already made a pledge, you are still eligible. So if you gave £100, we need £101 more, or if you donated £200, just an extra £1 will do it, but feel free to give more if you can afford it.

Help #Ukraine defend itself and defend democracy!
If you missed anything on Sunday, here's the start of yesterday's thread.

I was on the road most of yesterday and posted a lot in the evening.

Thread: 15 September 2022: Day 204 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Russian soldier talking to his wife is somewhat unimpressed with the commanders and even less impressed with the #Chechen Kadyrovtsy, the "Akhmat", who "fucked off (i.e. ran away), the fucking cowards" as the #Ukrainians closed in.
In #Mariupol overnight, #Ukrainians sang the national anthem in Liberation Square, knowing it can get them arrested and worse by the #Russian occupation authorities in the city. A sense that liberation is coming is spreading.

#Russia #Chechen leader Ramzan #Kadyrov: "In recent days, we have been receiving information, but there hasn't been concrete explanations. Well today, the Ministry of Defense clarified the information, because of which they left the cities of #Izyum, #Kupyansk, #Balakleya.

It was forced to preserve human lives. But that doesn't mean anything. I, Ramzan #Kadyrov, officially declare to you that all these cities will be returned back. We have our people there already, and guys who are specially equipped for this work

#Kharkov #ukrainerussiawar
10 thousand more fighters are ready to leave, and we will reach #Odessa in the near future. And you'll see concrete results.
I am not a strategist like the Department of Defense, but mistakes were made, I think they will draw conclusions.

A mini thread on what "don" means in #Chechen.

First, it is a filler word, used by Chechens but perhaps not as liberally as Kadyrov... so what does it mean? (1/n)
"don" comes from the Chechen дуй хьуна? (dui hwuna)
First: хьуна is the dative form of the second person singular, i.e., "to you." Literary Chechen has eight cases: nominative, genitive, dative, ergative, instrumental, substantive, comparative, and locative...
Nom. хьо
Gen. хьан
Dat. хьуна
Erg. ахь
Inst. хьоьца
Subs. хьох
Comp. хьол
Loc. хьоьга

The nominative, dative, and ergative can all be subjects of a Chechen verb. Ergativity is a widespread feature of indigenous languages of the Caucasus.

Feelings of Deja Vu for a student of post-Soviet affairs: Are we back in the 1990s? Moscow's December 1994 intervention in an inner-Chechen conflict was the beginning of the end of Russia's Second Republic (after the First one of Febr-Oct 1917). 1/3
Moscow's September 1999 start of the #SecondChechenWar, against the background of, probably, #FSB-organized apartment bombings blamed on #Chechen terrorists, was the beginning of #Putin's popularity rise. Now, #Chechens are fighting on both sides of the #RussianUkrainianWar. 2/3
Ukrainian socio-economic life in the non-occupied territories has returned to levels of the 1990s. Russia's economic life will soon too be back to the 1990s. Chechnia may again become a headache for Moscow. More conflict in the Caucasus & Central Asia has become more likely. 3/3

NEW-"Watching the images of Pres. #Putin & #Iran's supreme leader meeting yesterday in #Tehran did not exactly fill me w/nostalgia" @CIA Director William Burns tells #AspenSecurity

But "The reality is Russians & Iranians need each other right now..."
"...both heavily sanctioned countries, both looking to break out of political isolation" per @CIA's Burns "But if they need each other they don't really trust each other in the sene they're energy rivals & historical competitors"

"Both sides are looking to demonstrate they have options" per @CIA's Burns

Says mtg shows "the deficiencies of #Russia's defense industry today,the difficulties they're having" but notes "there are limits I think to the ways in which they're going to be able to help one another"

Thread: 17 July 2022: Day 144 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia is trying to reinforce defensive lines in the occupied south-east

- #Ukraine applying pressure around occupied Kherson, signs of an impending counter-offensive, which is likely what has provoked the Russian defensive moves.
