L'operazione segreta #GLADIO venne scoperta nel 1990: #CIA, #MI6 e #NATO avevano addestrato e diretto un esercito clandestino di unità paramilitari fasciste in tutta Europa, dispiegando le proprie risorse per indebolire gli oppositori politici.…
Oggi nuovi #file britannici recentemente declassificati, gettano una luce inquietante sulle origini e sul funzionamento interno dell'operazione #Gladio, che anche attraverso la NATO, dispiegava milizie terroristiche fasciste in tutta Italia.

Welcome to another week of daily threads on Europe's war. Updated throughout the day (and night) every single day.

It's Day 481 of #Russia's illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

To review Sunday's thread, click here.
I tempted fate by saying I was hoping for sleep. Soon enough alarms were sounding in the south of #Ukraine.

Suspected cruise missiles launched from #Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and #Odesa has reported explosions. Hopefully it's just air defence.

Good news is just coming in from #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) where it seems to be quiet now.

There were reported to be three targets - all three may have been shot down. I'm not hearing of damage yet.

Day 480 of the war. #Russia defending stubbornly with reinforced lines in the areas of #Ukraine they stole.

But I think the real push, with most forces, is yet to come. Here's another daily thread. There's been one every day, but I do need support pls!
Yesterday's thread can be found on the link below, click and scroll if you missed anything.

Loads of nice photos and videos in Saturday's thread and how there seems to have been a #Russia-#Africa plot to deny missile strikes, but Russia's MoD messed up!

Who doesn't like a bit of alliteration? And here are some sweet Sunday sounds to start your day.

Less than 20km north of #Henichesk in #Kherson region there was a big explosion, then many, many more in the village of #Rykove as #Russia's weapon/ammo store there went up in smoke!

All my dms to her were about her stolen personalities and weird “transitions” from one girl to another while inventing weird stories like “not to hurt her followers who trust her”.

the work of many Ukrainians on twitter; that people may start to doubt if Ukrainians on twitter (at that time many signed up on twitter due to the full-scale invasion) are real and reliable sources of information about Ukraine.
Now I don’t care, after yesterday,
that she didn’t join the spaces.
I send her link to spaces before she said “she goes to deliver supplies to the frontlines” she had time to join and say hi. She didn’t. This is enough for me.

More and more evidence coming out that an explosive force burst the dam. These signals would not have been detectable if the dam was destroyed by water and natural occurrences. @cirnosad @GeromanAT #NovaKakhovkaDam #crimea #counteroffensive #UkraineRussiaWar
Infrasound SIGINT from Romania also came out earlier today showing an anomalous reading consistent with an explosion at around the same time. #UkraineRussiaWar #Khakovkadam #crimea

This is on top of reports where locals were reporting a powerful explosion during the night and strange sounds following it. So far we have 3 independent confirmations through different signals that an explosion occurred at the dam. #RussiaUkraineWar

Les collabos français du régime pro #russe, toujours dans "l'argument" du "a qui profite le crime" affirment que ce serait se tirer une balle dans le pied pour #Poutine que de détruire la réserve d'eau de la #Crimea.
#NovaKakhovka #Kremlin #Ukraine #Kherson Image
2 Sauf que les sources russes elles mêmes disent le contraire.
Déjà en novembre 2022, l'agence #Tass expliquait pourquoi la Crimée ne manquerait pas d'eau: Image
3 Et hier encore la même agence aux ordres du #Kremlin renchérissait sur la même info. En fait cet "argument" se retourne contre les #vatniks, au vu du degré de préparation sur ce sujet, on pourrait même affirmer qu'il s'agit de préméditation. Image

ISW is not ready to assess who or what is responsible for destroying the #KakhovkaDam in #Kherson but notes that we forecast in October 2022 that the Russians would do so.

That forecast was inaccurate at the time, but the reasoning supporting the forecast was & remains valid. 🧵
2/ ISW assessed on October 19, 2022, that Russian forces would blow the #KakhovkaDam to cover their withdrawal from #Kherson Oblast and to prevent Ukrainian forces from pursuing Russian forces deeper into left (east) bank Kherson, likely blaming #Ukraine.…
3/ #Russia's "continued preparation for a false-flag attack on the #KakhovkaDam is also likely meant to distract from reports of Russian losses in Kherson Oblast," we assessed on October 20.…

🧵 (Thread) 1/ Oggi nell'#Ucraina meridionale una diga di epoca sovietica sul fiume Dnipro, a 30 km da #Kherson, è stata fatta esplodere, provocando il rilascio di acque alluvionali in tutta la zona. Ecco cosa sappiamo finora 👇 Image
2/ La diga in questione è quella di #Kakhovka, costruita nel 1956 come parte della centrale idroelettrica di Kakhovka, alta 30 metri e lunga 3,2 km.
3/ Le implicazioni di questa falla vanno oltre la zona del conflitto. Il bacino idrico fornisce acqua alla penisola di #Crimea, che la #Russia sostiene di aver annesso nel 2014, e alla centrale nucleare di #Zaporizhzhia, sotto il controllo russo.

#Russia blown up the Nova #Kakhovka dam in #Ukraine.

A reminder for some Western politicians: Russian regime just committed an ecological disaster and another major war crime. Russian fascism must be defeated and destroyed. It's perverted, sick and disgusting.

🧵 ...
On operational and other consequences:
- There will be no significant impact on UKR counter-offensive. #Ukraine may briefly pause to reassess the situation.
- The water level will increase, washing a lot of small settlements. #Kherson city is mostly on a higher land, though.

- RU is expecting to disrupt the #Ukraine's counter-offensive. RU miscalculated and messed up. Part of #Crimea will be left without water supply.
- The water levels will the decrease and stabilize. Here is a good article modelling the worst case.…

#BREAKING: The Nova Kakhovka Dam has been destroyed. The consequences of this are going to be drastic and grave. "It would be impossible to supply water to Crimea via the North Crimea Canal" - Head of Nova Kakhovka district. #ukraine #russia #novakakhovka #dam #crimea
A map below shows potential flooding consequences down stream of the dam. 80 towns, villages and cities are in danger of being under water in the coming hours. It is unclear who struck the dam at this time. This also drastically reduces water supply to Crimea. #russia #UkraineWar Image
‼️☢️Article of Zelensky talking about Russia staging a "false flag" on the Nova Kakhovka dam. He states that it could endanger the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant by draining the reservoir it uses to cool. This is a global crisis unfolding. #ukrainewar… Image

Day 466 of the daily thread covering the #UkraineRussianWar begins here.

All the news and analysis, throughout the day and night - looks like little sleep again tonight as it's believed #Russia has fired cruise missiles, currently an hour away from hitting #Ukraine.

The situation is still developing. We hope the missile launch was a fake, or dummy warheads to "draw out" #Ukraine's air defence.

For all yesterday's news, including the terrible attack on #Dnipro, click and scroll here:

Also hearing now that cruise-missile laden ships are in the launch zone in the Black Sea. This is not uncommon, but #Russia's current tactic of a mixed missile attack increases the likelihood of ships being involved.

Estimated time of arrival of rockets: 03:10 Kyiv time.

Good morning, welcome to Daily Thread number 465 covering #Ukraine's heroic defence against #Russia's illegal aggression.

I've been here from (before) the start of war, reporting on (sometimes from) a country I've loved, worked + lectured in many, many times.
Overnight was quiet
Before we get stuck in to today's news, a gentle reminder these threads are basically an unpaid full time job - actually more than that as you get days off with a job! Coffee donations welcome (link in Bio)

To catch up on Friday's news, click here
A few drones buzzed #Ukraine yesterday evening but air raids did not last long and no damage was reported.

The drone/cruise missile numbers on #Russia's daily losses are high as they include Friday morning's attacks.
Artillery, special equipment & fuel tanks way above average Image

Day 464 of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine starts with another horrendous wait to see if air defence can protect them as cruise missiles head towards them as I type.

This is THE daily thread with all the news of the brutal war in one place, updated all day (and night!)
So much happened yesterday - here's the link to the start of Thursday's thread.

Deaths from #Russia's missiles because shelters were locked
#Crimea bridge falling down?
Big explosions in #Belgorod + #Kursk regions and the rebel Russian units attack again

Almost all of #Ukraine is under threat right now. Sirens sound across the country except for a handful of western regions.

#Cherkasy, just south of #Kyiv is initially thought to be in the firing line of the missiles launched by #Russia from bombers over the Caspian Sea. Image

Here is the seventh thread 🧵 about the strategy of the #RussoUkrainianWar for the early summer. Russia took the control of #Bakhmut while Ukraine is still planning its offensive efforts. #Ukraine #Russia #Soledar #Kreminna #Svatove #Wagner #UkraineWar #Leopard2 #Vuhledar Image
1) You can find all earlier Twitter threads on war in #Ukraine and #Russia's unlawful invasion and more in this interactive map. Please remember that this map is not for showing the exact lines of contacts but to understand strategies.
2) British MoD underlined that, as planned, #Wagner is now withdrawing from the center of #Bakhmut. The defence of the town will be transferred to so-called DNR forces combined with VDV units. This shows that Wagner will not be in defensive efforts.
