Today is Day 278 since #Russia declared all out war on #Ukraine

Many battles have been won by those defending their homeland, but the war against Putin's hordes continues.

Every day I bring you the important news in one handy thread, starting right here⬇️
A late start today and a travel day for me, so I'll update as and when I can.

Thankfully it remains pretty quiet in terms of attacks and destruction. So not too much news the last 24 hours or so, but you can catch up on yesterday's thread here:

First, I wanted to highlight this report by #Ukraine's respected @pravda_eng

It looks at how, and why, President @ZelenskyyUa gained his own TV channel, while other oligarchs were squeezed out of the media market. This echoes my own concerns:…

Wo müsste die #Ukraine zuschlagen, um #Russland ins Mark zu treffen? Könnte die Ukraine womöglich mit ihrem Schlag sogar Einfluss auf die Nachfolge #Putin|s nehmen? Dazu versuche ich, in #Zaluzhnyi|s Kochtopf zu blicken. Kocht er wirklich nur mit Wasser? Ein 🧵
Eine essentielle Grundannahme tätige ich: Die Ukraine verfügt über Ressourcen für eine dritte Offensive neben den laufenden Operationen #Kherson und #Charkiw/#Luhansk. Valide Kenntnisse dazu sind aus naheliegenden Gründen unmöglich. Infos dazu unterliegen der Geheimhaltung. 1⃣
Weit verbreitet bestätigen Quellen zumindest keinen Mangel an Truppen, flankiert von einem intelligenten 🇺🇦 Rotationssystem. Die Schilderungen dieses Soldaten der Foreign Legion dazu sind eindrücklich: 2⃣

Friday's daily thread covering #Russia's war on #Ukraine starts here

In the #UK, 4 November is/was "Mischief Night" (is that still a thing?); sadly every day's a nightmare for Ukrainians

It's Day 254
Coming up: pleas for help from people in Mariupol and a new #Bucha documentary
Firstly, thanks to Tony for buying me a coffee (and a bacon sandwich too!)
If you think I deserve a coffee, see my bio.

If you missed anything yesterday, here's the link:

It's 3am in #Mariupol where temps will dip to +2
While many other areas of #Ukraine don't have power, many residents in occupied Mariupol don't even have windows. Civilians still forced to live in ruined tower blocks, hang banners "Children freezing" & "Where are the windows"

The terror continues from #Russia tonight.

But before the details on that, as usual a quick link to the start of yesterday's thread for those catching up on news from #Ukraine.

#Zaporizhzhia was subjected to a new wave of rocket attacks in the city.

Rescue workers are already at the scene, there are reports of casualties. #Ukraine has asked not to publish photos yet, but this CCTV gives you an idea of the power of the incoming #Russia|n missiles

Welcome to Tuesday's thread covering #Russia's illegal war.

13 September is Day 202.
Not as much destruction overnight but Russia still hit #Ukraine.

If you missed yesterday's news, click and scroll here ⬇️

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

The damage came in #Zaporizhzhia when #Russia once again fired anti-aircraft S-300 missiles.

Gov Okeksandr Starukh says 4 rockets hit "technical buildings of one of the infrastructure facilities"

Locals say it's a recycling plant

With no enemy to fight in #Kharkiv, it's not surprising to see equipment numbers down.
But deaths of #Russian soldiers still relatively high.

Day 194 of #Russia's 10-day "special operation" to take #Ukraine, but now they lose ground in the south and some territory in the east.

Welcome to a new week, which will end with the 200th day of this illegal war.

This is the daily thread with all the news
DMs open for tip offs
The fightback continued last night - if you missed anything, here's the start of yesterday's thread - scroll through to the end.

The last story was about a journalist in #Russia who's likely to be jailed for 24 years in a few hours.

Already quite a few regions in #Ukraine hit by #Russia's bombs tonight.

#Kharkiv, #Mykolaiv and #Zaporizhzhia.

These heavy explosions were heard in Zaporizhzhia city.

Welcome to Friday's daily thread on #Russia's unprovoked war.

It's Day 184 of #Ukraine's fight for survival against the full invasion. All the news, all day in one place.

Thanks to BB for buying me a coffee this morning, you can too - see my profile!
First, I know a few people like to see what they missed from the night before, lost in the mass of Tweets!

Here's the start of yesterday's thread, scroll down to see what you missed.

The good news is Friday has begun fairly quietly. This is in line with the general trend of fewer missiles being fired by #Russia, likely indicating some "rationing" of diminishing stocks.

They won't run out soon, but cannot replace as quickly as they were firing.

Daily thread number 179 reporting all the news on the war following #Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine.

The big news comes from Moscow, more in a moment, but in case you missed and of yesterday's thread, here's the start:


One of #Russia's most high profile politician's has survived an assassination attempt which killed his daughter.

30 year old Dariya Dugina died when the car she was in exploded. Her father Aleksandr Dugin, sometimes called 'Putin's brain', is seen as a far right extremist
Aleksandr Dugin has previously called for Russia to control from Dublin to Vladivostok.

He was the target of the car bomb. Dugin reportedly switched vehicles at the last moment and was following his daughter when her Toyota exploded.

Mash media say this is Dugin at the scene

Just gone midnight (UK time) and the weekend already.

I'm starting the daily thread covering #Russia's war earlier than usual as there are attacks taking place right now on #Ukraine

It's Day 178 of the full invasion of its peaceful neighbour

Right now ALL of #Ukraine is experiencing air raid warnings, but not everything is the same as usual.

A few minutes ago, at the end of yesterday's thread, I reported on explosions in occupied #Melitopol, but plenty of missiles being fired from #Russia into free Ukraine...
However, it seems as though #Russia's OWN air defences have taken out some of their own missiles leaving #Belgorod!

Difficult to confirm this, but looking at confirmed radar reports of missiles being fired from Russian territory, towards east #Ukraine this does seem very likely.

It's Friday and the war in #Ukraine never stops.

Today I'll try to find out what really happened in #Crimea while #Russia bombs🇺🇦again

Only just realised I made a typo on the day number. Yesterday was Day 176, today is the 177th day of the illegal war.

Still nothing 100% confirmed from #Crimea after a lot of activity last night.

In both #Kerch and #Sevastopol the occupiers say they shot down🇺🇦drones to explain explosions.

Many sources say the main Belbek airport was hit as 4 very loud bangs rang out

It is generally accepted though that #Ukraine took out one of #Russia's ammo bases near the border.

Two villages were evacuated by #Belgorod authorities after the cache was struck near the village of #Timonovo - this evidence was too hard to conceal.

🇺🇦🇷🇺WAR: Day 171 - my daily thread.

#Russia's war crimes continue; none was possible without the first - Putin's decision to invade a peaceful neighbour.

A lot of late news from #Ukraine in yesterday's thread - if you missed it, click and scroll⬇️

Britain's daily update points out the vulnerability of Russia's invaders west of the Dnipro river in occupied #Kherson region.

In fact 5 bridges in the region are now unusable despite frantic ongoing repair efforts.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Ukraine's South Division stated in its morning update the bridge near the Kakhovka Hydroelectric plant was the latest hit.
Some locals report this bridge is still being used but it's probably not safe for heavy vehicles.
There are more explosions reported now in #Lyubimivka

We have reached day 170 of #Russia's war of choice.

The last 48 hours have been perhaps the quietest for #Ukraine since the full invasion on 24 February. But already today (Friday) there is a big attack on #Kharkiv

This is the link to y'day's thread:
Four loud explosions heard in central #Kharkiv within the last 20 minutes.

Here's the first video. You can see the flash of the explosion in the bottom left just 5-6 seconds in, followed a long time later by the sound blast, showing the distance.

Something seems to have gone wrong with air defence in #Kharkiv tonig I'm afraid. Four missile launches were noted and warned of and four explosions in the city.

This is reported to be the third of the hits on the city in north-east #Ukraine.

Day 162 of #Russia's war with a country which has never invaded, or fired upon, another country once.

#Ukraine continues its proud defence, but masses of new cannon fodder are arriving on the fronts to help #Russia pressure new fronts.

All the news, all day in one 🧵, read on!
First to the murder of #Ukraine's #Azovstal defenders in the missile strike on the #Olenivka prison.

The @ICRC put out a statement saying they could not guarantee the safety of the Ukrainians despite negotiating their release from #Mariupol'…
The Red Cross statement says they had no access to prisoners in #Olenivka before the strike. This contradicts Russian propaganda channels which claimed they visited 4 days before.

US Intel concurs with my assessment Russia is delaying UN/ICRC visits to plant evidence.

Wednesday 3 August. Day 161 of #Russia's full scale invasion of peaceful #Ukraine

Welcome to my daily thread, with all the news from, and affecting the war. DMs open for tips (anonymous if preferred)

Thx to those who already supported me.
Still big problems for #Russia in the occupied south of #Ukraine. British Intel today highlighting the transport links which will hinder their attempts to fend off a Ukraine assault in #Kherson or counter attack here towards #Mykolaiv.
The #Ukraine land assault in #Kherson will come, but #Russia adding 1000s of extra (untrained) conscripts + Wagner mercenaries to the warzone, complicates matters

The invaders now threaten #Zaporizhzhia having failed to take all of #Donetsk

So for now 🇺🇦continues to hit 🇷🇺bases

Welcome to Wednesday's coverage of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

All the news that matters throughout the day in one handy thread.

This is Day 154 of #PutinsWar
The big news came at midnight #Ukraine time, when rockets started landing in #Kherson region and again on the Antonivskyi Bridge.

Several people uploaded videos to social networks:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
The first news from #Kherson is not overly good for #Ukraine. Although the Antonivskyi bridge was hit, the structure still stands and is still passable.

#Russia's state new agency TASS says there is "no damage" which is highly unlikely.

This is the moment of impact

We have entered the sixth month of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

Welcome again to the daily thread.

Day 152 and the senseless killing continues, all because of one little man.

All the main news and analysis updated throughout the day!

At times updates today may be delayed as I'm on the move, but I will catch up with everything in bursts of activity when I have internet and a seat!

DMs open for tip offs. I try to answer all questions @ me too.
First the #Ukraine estimate of #Russia's losses.

Whether or not the figures are accurate (they're likely inflated at least a little), there are a lot of RU soldiers being killed the last few days.

A bit of a landmark day as #PutinsWar reaches Day 150.
That's 146 days behind schedule (and counting) for the capture of #Kyiv 😂😂😂

This is the start of my daily thread with all the news about #Ukraine's defence and #Russia's aggression.

DMs open for tip-offs (100% anonymity)

Quite a lot of Russian rocket attacks to report in #Ukraine already

Starting in #Kharkiv where war crimes investigators are on the scene after purely civilian infrastructure was hit this morning.
Apartments & a university in the centre of the city were struck.


One injury reported so far in #Kharkiv after this morning's attack by #Russia which saw many rockets fly into the city centre.

#Ukraine insists these were only civilian buildings - recently #Russia has claimed Ukraine's army has been using universities for military purposes

First, a reminder, between 2-3pm I will be online @Independent to answer your questions in the live "Ask Me Anything" session.

Trolls take advantage to ask loaded Qs, so any more sensible comments or queries most welcome. Leave your question here now:…
#Russia continues to make no progress in #Donetsk region and still has not "cleaned up" the whole of #Luhansk yet.

Various attempts to move forward on the frontline were repelled by #Ukraine
Russian sources are still claiming they are rotating troops to cover for lack of success

#PutinsWar enters Day 148.
21 July: anniversary of man first walking on the moon and in exactly four months the opening match of the World Cup in Qatar will be about to kick off.

But this is the daily thread on #Russia's war in #Ukraine, updated real time so please read & share.
* Graphic photos *

It's a depressing start to the day, with many attacks, shelling and deaths in #Ukraine.

Among the places worst hit - again - is #Kharkiv. The reign of terror continues by the invaders. Two died and 19 injured so far after attacks on residents.

Officials in #Kharkiv are still concealing the exact location of #Russia's strikes. However, one of the most populated areas was hit with #Ukraine alleging The Kremlin targeted transport stops and residential streets.
They also say they found evidence of cluster bombs:
