Esecuzioni dimostrative dei civili in #Donbas.🧵@MrMortuus: "Abbiamo vissuto questa realtà per 8 anni, ma i russi non lo diffondevano prima. La posizione filo🇺🇦 non è l'unico prerequisito per essere uccisi. Basta destare il sospetto dei carnefici o possedere qualcosa di prezioso.
E la persona scompariva per sempre. Sono indignato come molti ucraini. Ma queste foto non sono una novità, sono una realtà familiare per me dal 2014. Tutti ricordano come nel 2020 è stata "accidentalmente" trovata una fossa comune vicino a Horlivka, con bambini, donne, anziani.
I propagandisti🇷🇺 ne hanno felicemente accusato le forze armate ucraine. Urlavano per 3-4 giorni "genocidioh in Donbass". C'erano i baccanali con esperti tascabili e i "cittadini" sui canali federali, ne parlavano tutti. Mica era la bufala del bambino crocifisso o della tartaruga

How do Ukraine’s 🇺🇦 and Georgia's 🇬🇪 fights for freedom compare to each other?

UkraineWorld spoke to Bakur Kvashilava, Dean of the School of Law and Politics and Professor of International Relations and Comparative Politics.

Key points – in our brief, #UkraineWorldAnalysis 1/11
There are similarities and differences between #Georgian Abkhazia and South Ossetia in 2008 and Ukrainian #Donbas and #Crimea in 2014. 2/11
The similarities are that #Russia was the main driving force for the separatist aspirations of these regions. Russia was instrumental in making these entities successful on the ground and expelling legitimate state authorities from the territories in question. 3/11

Hello again. We've reached day 395 of the war.

#Russia's forward momentum in #Ukraine appears to have stalled and splits and tensions are starting to show among the illegal invaders, from the top down.

Here's another daily thread with #Ukraine news updated throughout the day.
As usual, here's a handy link to yesterday's thread for those who missed anything, such as some tasty fires, a kicking 'priest' and sadly, more war crimes and devastation.

#StandWithUkraine #RussiansGoHome

Now the usual numbers game.
Another 720 wasted lives and grieving families in #Russia as illegal invaders are sacrificed to #Putin.

Not much else of note except 9 MLRS equipment and a helicopter destroyed.

1/ It's been a while since I've done a thread on the overall pace and prospects of 🇷🇺 offensives in 🇺🇦... so here's a quick one on our latest @TheStudyofWar assessment on indicators that the overall 🇷🇺 spring offensive appears to be nearing culmination.
2/ 🇺🇦 mil officials have made several statements supporting @TheStudyofWar's assessment that the #Donbas offensive is nearing culmination. Eastern Group spox Cherevaty stated that current 🇷🇺 offensives cannot be called "a major strategic operation."
3/ 🇷🇺 forces have struggled to secure operationally significant gains and are suffering major losses in the 4 areas of the front where they are pursuing offensives- #Luhansk Oblast, #Bakhmut, the Avdiivka-Donetsk City area, and in western #Donetsk Oblast.

The tempo of #Russian offensive operations across the theater has slowed in recent weeks, suggesting that the Russian spring offensive in #Donbas may be nearing culmination.
2/ Ongoing Russian offensives along the Svatove-Kreminna line, around #Bakhmut, & along the Avdiivka-#Donetsk City and #Vuhledar frontlines have failed to make more than incremental tactical gains in 2023.
3/ Ukrainian military officials additionally continue to indicate that massive Russian losses in the #Vuhledar area in particular are severely degrading Russian offensive capacity in #Donetsk Oblast.

Sunday 19 March, Day 389 of #Russia's war of choice.

Here's yet another daily thread for your delectation!

If you missed something yesterday, here's the link forall of Saturday's news relevant to #Ukraine.

Bunker Boy emerged from the Kremlin yesterday, turning up in #Crimea, which he likes to do to celebrate anniversaries of the capture.

Putin also survived a trip to occupied #Mariupol', where he allegedly met with locals, but on footage I saw it was all officials.
What I find interesting is how the Kremlin tried to make out #Putin had driven to #Crimea, and again today they're at pains to show footage of him "driving around #Mariupol."

I believe this shows there's serious concern in Moscow about his health, so he must prove he's fit.

Saturday is Day 381 of #Russia's attempt to obliterate #Ukraine from the map, to destroy an independent nation and centuries of culture.

This is the only thread you need for all the news and developments around the war, here's y'day's thread to catch up:

Starting today with the British Intel update. London confirms that #Wagner troops have reached the centre of #Bakhmut. However they explain why #Ukraine is still holding #Russia at bay in the #Donetsk town.

They don't supply a map, so I've added 2 from Google + DeepState to help
There are so many exaggerations, lies & fakes in all wars; I guess these days it's easier, quicker to spread + difficult & time consuming to try to spot fakes.

But here's one. As news of Leopard tanks being deployed by #Ukraine, a crude photoshop of a🇷🇺 chevron on an old photo

ISW continues to assess that the #Russian offensive in eastern #Ukraine will shortly culminate if Russian forces capture #Bakhmut, as the Russian military does not have the combat power or reinforcements necessary to exploit a breakthrough near Bakhmut.
2/ #Prigozhin implied on March 8 that the Russian Ministry of Defense used the #Wagner Group to bear the brunt of high-intensity attritional urban warfare in #Bakhmut and may discard the Wagner Group after capturing Bakhmut so conventional Russian units can continue to attack.
3/ ISW has observed no indicators that the #Russian military has a capable reserve force to advance beyond #Bakhmut. Most observed Russian units in #Donbas are already engaged in offensive operations, including Russian airborne elements that joined the Russian offensive in Jan.

Likely you haven't heard of Pilgrims Group. References to company in the media are extremely rare. However, they're well known to Western news outlets - they provide protection services to journalists in hostile environments, and embed their security specialists in news crews.
Pilgrims Group was active on the ground in Ukraine from the early days of the US-orchestrated Maidan coup in 2013, and within mere hours of #MH17 generated multiple teams to ferry journalists around, thus maintaining a high degree of editorial control over their output.

Ucrania 🇺🇦 Vs Rusia 🇷🇺
La situación no ha cambiado y en #Bakhmut solo resisten unos pocos militares ucranianos. La diferencia de tropas y armamento, fue crucial para los invasores con los mercenarios del G. Wagner al frente. De hecho hace dos días los rusos pasean por la ciudad.
En #Bakhmut la resistencia de los ucranianos fue de un coraje increíble. Aún unos pocos quedan ahí, y hay combates aislados. Los rusos siguen con la misma táctica que desarrollaron en la destruida #Mariupol. Hay habitantes (personas mayores), que nunca se irán de sus casas.
⚠️ Hago un paréntesis:
En todo el mundo existen “nuevos corresponsales de guerra”, pero detrás de una pantalla, y a miles de Km de la zona invadida.
No solo eso, sino que simpatizan como fanáticos por #Putin o por #Zelensky.
⚠️Yo tampoco estoy en el lugar, pero trato de informar.

🔴 Une des plus grandes campagnes de propagande de tous les temps

🚨Très intéressant article de James Rickards, éditeur des magazines Strategic Intelligence, Project Prophesy, Crash Speculator et Gold Speculator.

Il est extrêmement difficile de trouver la vérité sur la 🔽
guerre en #Ukraine.

La première raison : nous parlons de guerre. Les guerres sont toujours difficiles à évaluer en temps réel. L'expression "brouillard de guerre" a été inventée pour traduire l'incertitude et l'imprécision des progrès réalisés sur le champ de bataille. 🔽
Cependant, il existe une autre raison pour laquelle la guerre en Ukraine est déroutante pour tant de personnes. L'effort de propagande ukrainien est devenu l'une des inventions de mensonges les plus étonnamment efficaces jamais vues.

Hello again. It's Day 369 of the war. #Russia's 10-day war on #Ukraine that is.

Hope your week starts well. It wasn't a great start for Ukrainians with a drone attack as the new week began, but as I write no feared cruise missile attack although there is a warning as I type...
Sunday proved to be quite a newsworthy day concerning #Ukraine, meaning more work for me, including a 4 page essay for Elon Musk - still no reply yet!

To see what you missed, take a scroll back through daily thread number 368 right here:

Much lower losses again for #Russia in the figures published daily by #Ukraine.

Is it the weekend lag or a case of fewer suicidal waves of Russkiy lemmings trying to take #Bakhmut, #Vuhledar et al?

Looks pretty certain now to hit 150k dead soldiers on the first day of spring. Image
