Day 131 of #Russia's unprovoked war on #Ukraine.
In total though it's 8 years, 4 months - more than twice as long as WW1 and 2 years longer than WWII.

All the news, events and analysis as it happens, updated in real time right here in the daily thread, so scroll below!
Yesterday saw many civilian lives lost as Russia unleashed a barrage of missiles on eastern regions.

6 died in #Sloviansk, civilian buildings struck in #Kramatorsk and, as it only just made Sunday's thread, a repost of 🇷🇺 hitting a hospital in #Sumy

Three days ago I broke the news about @NHLFlyers losing a player - Ivan Fedotov arrested as he attempted to go to the States.

I can now confirm the Finnish born ice hockey star is in Severomorsk, #Murmansk to start his military service on Novaya Zemlya

Welcome to my 130th daily thread on #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine.

While #Luhansk looks to be lost, a fightback continues from the Ukrainians in the south of the country.

All the news right here in one thread...

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Two big news events overnight as #Ukraine hits #Russia in both 🇺🇦+🇷🇺

First the strike over the border in #Russia.
Officials in #Belgorod say 3 people died and four are injured.

A local TG channel helpfully put together a "highlights" video of the night's action!
#Ukraine has not yet admitted the attack in #Russia and no confirmation of what was it. But could well be an ammunition store.

A house in #Belgorod' also seems to have been targeted but I cannot verify this video.

We are now at the 129 day mark since Russia began its invasion of #Ukraine. There are conflicting claims about whether the Russians have siezed #Lysychansk. Today, an assessment of options for Russia’s next moves. 1/16
2/ Currently, Russian forces are closing the Luhansk Pocket. The Russian operational objectives here have been to draw the Ukrainians into a battle of attrition (Russia’s preferred war of war), as well as to capture the remaining Ukrainian held territory in Luhansk. Image
3/ If Russia captures the remainder of Luhansk in the short term, what might be their next move?

1/5 Paramedic Yulia "Taira" Payevskaya was helping wounded in #Mariupol when she was captured on 16th March. Two months later she returned to Ukraine. These are some quotes from her interview about her time as a captive👇

2/5 “They treated us horribly. I had nothing all this time. What I had - one pair of underwear, one pair of pants, shoes and some clothes, that's it.
They took the rest from me and didn't allow me any phone connection or medical help”
3/5 “Lately they kept me in a prison in #Donetsk. Lots of our POWs are still there, treated horribly. They didn't even give us soap in the last week. There are 22 women in a 6*3 cell, 10 beds. No information about families and children, too. Their moral condition was awful”

This is my 129th daily thread on #PutinsWar

The killing continues: #Ukraine still under real pressure in the eastern #Donbas region, but signs that the US supplied weapons in particular are beginning to cause real problems for #Russia.

All the news, all day, right here⬇️
#Mykolaiv came under heavy attack in the early hours this morning. We are still awaiting full details.

At least 8 missiles were launched by #Russia's army. Some landed in #Nikolaev according to the mayor
Although it's Day 129 of this thread and the full invasion, please remember this war started over 8 years ago.
In two weeks it will be the 8th anniversary of the MH17 massacre when 300 were murdered by #Russia. Had we acted decisively then, we wouldn't need to spend billions now.

Day 128 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

The illegal, insane, inhumane war which was Putin's choice.

More murder and war crimes today as the little man in the Kremlin orders revenge for the loss if Snake Island

All the news right here in one place, welcome to the daily thread
The revenge from #Russia for the anger at losing #SnakeIsland is an horrendous missile attack on residents in #Odesa/#Odessa region.

17 dead and 31 injured as rescuers work at the site.

Yet another war crime

#RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
#Putin loves symbolism and to leave calling cards.
It's no coincidence that he ordered the murderous strikes on an apartment block and two leisure complexes in #Odesa region with exactly the same delivery as #Kremenchuk - three X-22 missiles fired from Tu-22 strategic bombers.

Starting a new Rus - Ukr thread

Last one ended here
No major movements on the map since my last update.
The only notable news is the reported entrance of Rus forces in Vovcherovka, 7 - 8 km south of #Lisichansk
The photos are reportedly from there but it's not known currently whether it's cleared completely ImageImageImageImage
Another interesting detail is that 2 small settlements Sinetski & Pavlograd (just across the river from #Lisichansk) are in the gray zone on the map.
The Rus probably haven't entered them likely due to being exposed to Ukr fire from the other bank Image

Aquí, imágenes de la vida cotidiana de las FFAA de Ucrania en Severodonetsk, que fueron filmadas antes de abandonar la ciudad. Mejor que cualquier palabra, el video ilustra la posición del régimen: Voenkor Yevgeny Poddubny.

Day 121 📌 Today marks exactly four months since the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Four months of struggle by the people of Ukraine. Four months of unprecedented solidarity. Read more about the current situation in Ukraine in the update ⬇️…
EU government leaders holding a 2-day summit in Brussels approved a recommendation from the @EU_Commission to grant candidate status to Ukraine & Moldova 😍 The landmark decision immediately delivered a tremendous morale boost in both countries and was cheered widely there.
Ukrainians took to the streets twice, in 2004 & 2014, to force the government to root out corruption & come closer to the EU. 8 years ago, 🇺🇦 calling for closer relations with the EU during the Revolution of Dignity were shot & killed by police from the pro-Moscow administration

Day 120 📌 ‘It is the only country where people got shot because they wrapped themselves in a European flag. 🇺🇦 has gone through hell and high water for one simple reason: and that’s their desire to join the EU,’ – @vonderleyen said. More in our brief ⬇️…
@vonderleyen EU leaders will decide today whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, following a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday 🙏 Ukraine’s president, @ZelenskyyUa, said he had spoken to 11 EU leaders on Wednesday about Ukraine’s candidacy.
@vonderleyen After the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the #Czech government decided to suspend the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation and later to Belarus, except for humanitarian causes, till March 2023 🤷‍♀️

As a result of the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 592 🇺🇦 children have been injured, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on June 22. The figures are expected to be higher since they do not include casualties in areas where hostilities are ongoing 😔
Decisive battles are taking place on the territory of the #Sievierodonetsk and #Lysychansk agglomerations, and the 🇷🇺 leadership demands that its troops reach the administrative borders of the #Luhansk region by June 26, – says Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar.

1. @ELuttwak correctly warns that #Putin cannot give up the #Donetsk and #Luhansk regions, as he would loose face, and that he will therefore fight for them to the end. 1/4…
2. But #Luttwark also thinks that #Putin would be ready to allow, conduct, and accept genuine #plebiscites in the regions which could leave #Russia without the #Donbas. 2/4
CC: @Konflikt_Sicher @GSPSipo @FiS_Heidelberg @ukraine_world @intercourier_ua @TerekMedia @KyivIndependent
3. However, we and Putin know from many opinion polls that support for #separatism was always much lower than 50% in the #Donbas. See the relevant opinion polling data collected by #KMIS @PA3yMKOB @dem_initiatives and other Institutes. 3/4

Sladkov at an economic forum in Piter says: Putin has been speaking for almost an hour now, clearly, with numbers and examples.
Main theme: development independent of the West.
Even for those that hate Putin his ability to retain and use vast amount of information is unreal
This guy is capable of keeping up with enormous amount of information and use it for his goals. He is extremely hands on and detail oriented. Persistent and tenacious. You don't have to like him but country leaders like that are a rare breed.
Sladkov is in real time providing a summary of what is being said at the conference
Vladimir Putin: “Economic independence cannot be partial. All elements of independence are important.”

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- russ. Truppen rücken in #Bohorodychne ein, #Severodonetsk beinah komplett abgeschnitten;
- Einkesselung im #Donbass droht - Flaschenhals von 22km noch offen;
- schwere Lage bei ukr. Artillerie;
- Verwirrung um Leopard-Lieferungen.
Russische Truppen sind in der Ortschaft #Bohorodychne eingerückt und stoßen damit weiter auf #Slavyansk aus nördlicher Richtung vor.
Die genaue Lage ist im Moment noch unklar. #Donetsk erklärte, die Ortschaft sei komplett eingenommen worden.
Kiew erklärte, man kämpfe in der Siedlung noch.
Beide Seiten würden versuchen, "sich an der Ortschaft festzukrallen".
Im Moment sollen starke Gefechte auch in einem Waldmassiv nahe Bohorodychne stattfinden, wo offensichtlich zahlreiche ukr. Kleintrupps ihre Stellungen halten
