Hello and welcome to the daily thread for Friday, with all the news on #Ukraine's defence of its homeland and indeed existence, against #Russia's aggression.

It's Day 401, with all the news you need!
Missed something on Thursday? Click and scroll here:

I'll start with #Russia's losses on the battlefield (as estimated by #Ukraine)

Numbers still well done on peaks. A number of factors: awful weather, and highly likely the invaders are short on cattle/soldiers and ammo meaning fewer attacks across the frontline.

Britain's Intel update for the last day of March shows another problem for #Russia because of the sanctions.

Day 368 of Europe's war and welcome to Sunday's daily thread with all the information you need in one handy🧵

It's still fairly quiet in most of #Ukraine as #Russia continues its illegal war.

Here's the link if you want to catch up on yesterday's events

The death of another American soldier has been confirmed in #Ukraine.

28-year-old Afghanistan veteran Andrew Peters from #Wisconsin died 10 days ago while helping Ukraine defend its territory. Andrew was part of the International Defence Legion.

Each day #Ukraine releases figures for the numbers of Russian soldiers killed and equipment destroyed.

Invariably it's lower at weekends. So today's numbers (covering Saturday's losses) are lower across the board. I'm wondering if a couple of units don't report at weekends?

Hello and welcome to day 349 of #Russia's war of choice.

#Ukraine still defends valiantly, but the west's tardiness to act has placed them under severe pressure for the next 6 weeks until trained troops return with some new toys.

All the news in one thread, read on...
First the link to yesterday in case you were busy or just want a summary.

A lot of flim flam was written but actually you missed very little. Here's one of the shortest threads of the last 11 months so far:

#Ukraine #Russia

The clock is ticking if #Russia is to meet #Putin's 25th "deadline" (that's a guess, don't take me literally)

The little man with a big anger issue is clearly intent on taking all of Donbas before the anniversary, or 1 March latest.

British intel doesn't think they'll do it.

Too late. I don’t care what you do. It’s been nearly year since we found r@ped 4 year old girl blindfolded and laying dead on top of her also r@ped mother in #Bucha. It’s been nearly year since we see child after child with similar trauma across country,
Those #Bucha girls held in basement for month and made pregnant, those #Irpin girls found in mass graves with multiple DNA in them. #Izium, torture chambers for children in #Kherson, #Mariupol people all gone,
Disappeared and stolen children. Mass graves. 21 concentration camps, executions, mass murder, freezing, starvation, trauma. We are suffering for year.

And you decide that #Dnipro was worth flowers? Take your flowers to hell with you. I don’t forgive you. No one does.

It's day 307 of #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine.

Welcome along to Tuesday's daily news thread.

Monday was quite a day. Find out anything you missed right here:

In complete contrast to yesterday there is very little news to report.

This in itself has to be good news with not a single report of missiles or shelling so far and it's almost 6am in #Ukraine.
The de-Nazification/russification of #Ukraine continues.

In liberated #Izium 19 streets have changed names to shed Russian links. The town in #Kharkiv now honours Steve Jobs and Golda Meir instead. Meir, the 4th Prime Minister of Israel was born in #Kyiv.

A milestone in the #RussiaUkraine war.
Tuesday 20 December is Day 300 of the unprovoked conflict.

Welcome along to another daily thread with all the important news and analysis, updated in real time throughout the day.

Here's yesterday's thread ICYMI
The NAFO Fellas down under asked me to let you know about this festive initiative:

#StandWIthUkraine #StopRussia

The @UN stands accused of "yielding to #Russia's threats" for not investigating #Iran's role in the drone attacks which are causing the civilian population unimaginable suffering

Many allies believe Iran's supply of weapons violates a 2015 UNSC resolution…

Day 283 of #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine is with us.

Again a relatively quite night in the #RussiaUkraineWar. but still news coming up of rocket attacks by Russia and more heavy losses for the invaders.

All the news, all day, in one thread, read on!⬇️
As always, a quick link for yesterday's thread in case you missed anything, such as the #USA naming the #Wagner group and another rebellion among #Russia's newly mobilised (cannon fodder)

I estimated 100,000 Russian soldiers would be killed shortly after the "western"/Catholic Christmas. Now it looks like it will happen just before then as high losses continue for #Russia

As well as another 500+ killed, an uptick in drone hits and a helicopter brought down.

Hello and welcome to Wednesday. Day 280 of #Russia's war on its peaceful neighbour.

Britain's MOD points out that an important new law comes in to effect in #Russia tomorrow.

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine
500 more of #Russia's soldiers killed in the last 24 hours*

Many will be recently mobilised after minimal training.

Here is the start of Saturday's news thread as #Ukraine battles for freedom.

#Russia's attack on the people (quite literally) continues with power cuts becoming more frequent as the temperatures tumble outside.

#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

So today's the biggest attack by #Russia for weeks.

More missiles are flying around #Ukraine right now - but it's becoming noticeable that air defence is getting better.

17 cruise missiles were fired from aircraft and 16 Kalibr missiles were launched from the Black Sea fleet.
Mayor of #Kyiv, Vitaliy Klichko says "several" missiles fired on energy structure in the capital were shot down.

Other cities to come under attack include:
#Chernihiv #Lutsk #Lviv #Khmelnytskyi #Kovel #Kropyvnytskyi/#Kirovohrad #Odesa #Rivne #Zhytomyr

Watching Vladimir Putin speak on Friday about his sham annexations of #Ukrainian territory as Russia’s “great liberation mission,” my colleague, @yuliagorbunova_, recalled a woman from occupied Kherson, whom she interviewed some weeks ago…

🧵 Image
Russia’s security agents had detained her entire family and interrogated her for hours with a plastic bag over her head.

All the while, she could hear her husband being beaten in the next room.
“They kept asking me, ‘Are you a fascist?’ I told them that I was Ukrainian.”

“They said: ‘There is no such people. We are one people.’”

“So, I asked them, ‘if we are one people, why am I sitting here with a bag over my head, while you are beating my husband to death?’”

Welcome to the daily news thread for 3 October.
Day 222 (Richie Benaud day?) of #Ukraine's defence of its homeland against the full scale invasion by Putin's #Russia

For a catch up on yesterday's here's the start of Sunday's thread for you to scroll thru:
Yesterday I wrote about two horrific and needless land mine tragedies & already two more today in #Kharkiv oblast.

Regional Gov Oleh Synyehubov says an ambulance driver was killed and a paramedic injured near #Balakliia, while another 26yo man was wounded in a separate incident.
As I suspected, #Russia's losses subsided a little in the last 24 hours. That's directly due to the invaders' retreat from #Lyman.

However with #Ukraine advances in #Kreminna and #Kherson region, they could rise again.

#Kyiv's forces likely also be suffering heavy daily losses

Russians created the cult of their own pain and suffering and want everyone to worship it.
It’s glamorous. Marketable. “Ovsyannikova” with an edge. It’s more shareable than #Olenivka or #Izium. Makes a good view and a catchy headline. For pinterest-vaporwave-bubbletea-aesthetics appreciators - this is *the* fight.
Not the murdered heroes or excavations of mass graves.
You won’t find retweets of this ℹ️ by 250k-followers-progressive people-lovers who ask to share coordinates of Ukrainian defenders they deem “unworthy👎” based on Russian propaganda and don’t know how they should feel about Russians being given old rifles to kill Ukrainians.

Sunday 25 September, Day 214 of #Russia's war of choice. Imagine a leader choosing to send over 50,000 of his countrymen to death and calling up another million, against a peaceful nation which never fired on, nor invaded anyone!

Here is the daily news thread

Sunday started with a bang in #Kherson.

More on that in a moment, but Saturday was a quiet one, thankfully. If you want to scroll back through, here's the thread:

#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

It's believed #Ukraine has killed another collaborator in #Kherson.

Former Deputy of National Affairs Oleksiy Zhuravko is one of the victims after missiles destroyed this hotel populated by Russians. He was twice an MP in Ukraine before moving to Russia in 2014.

Almost the weekend, this is Friday's daily thread with all the news, views + analysis as #Russia attacks #Ukraine

It's Day 212 of the war

There's an update to the Ukraine fundraiser. We hope to get one of these alongside the winter clothing. If you can help, see my pinned tweet Image
As usual a link to yesterday's thread as a few of you tell me you like to check up on the news in one place.

Another fairly quiet day in terms of attacks and missiles, although just before Thursday ended, #Zaporizhzhia suffered a bad attack:

#Mobilization is still the big talking point in #Russia

This is a scene from #Makhachkala in the republic of #Dagestan. A big convoy of fresh convicts, sorry conscripts.

Woman can be heard wailing, knowing they may never see loved ones again.

Tuesday 20 September - Day 209 of the illegal war being waged by #Russia, welcome to the daily thread.

#Ukraine is fighting for democracy, for its very survival. Our fundraiser is at 18% of target - a good start. Photos added of what we will be buying.…
Many interesting stories late on Monday's thread

⚡️#Russia's soldiers sexually assaulted a 4 year old child.
⚡️🇷🇺embassy in Canada firebombed
⚡️Big (suspicious) fire in 🇷🇺 city
⚡️Employees forced to "donate" over 40% of their weekly wage to Russia's war

Here's a risky investment for Russians.

How about booking a New Year's Eve party at the #Kerch (Crimea) bridge?
New cruises being launched from next week.

Well, guess they like fireworks on 31 December. Why not try a #HIMARS light show experience?…

Day 208 of the war.
#Russia's grotesque war on #Ukraine. This is the daily thread.

A new week, but a national holiday in the #UK - the funeral of Elizabeth II and a new photo - her last ever portrait.

Goodbye our Queen, and thank you.
Fewer stories on Sunday than for a long time, which is a relief as that usually means fewer civilian deaths in #Ukraine.

But there was still plenty to write about - if you missed anything, scroll through yesterday's thread with this link:

I'm just back in the UK from #Poland
Plans now in place for purchase & distribution of however much equipment we can buy to help #Ukraine's brave soldiers for winter

We're up to £1,560 but we need more.
Please dig deep, share on Facebook, Insta, anywhere…

Hi new followers! Since u followed me after #APSA2022 where @kath_stoner, @darelasn, Olena Nikolayenko & I disputed Mearsheimer’s claim that NATO expansion made Putin 2 attack 🇺🇦, I put together🧵summarizing my comments. Thx @PopovaProf & @dandrezner 4 live-tweeting panel! 1/21
My broader argument was that accurate analysis of the war needs to take seriously 2 things not taken seriously by great power politics realist analysis: 1) dynamics of domestic politics in 🇷🇺 & 🇺🇦, especially identity politics, and b) Ukrainian agency. 2/21
JM claim that NATO expansion provoked🇷🇺 2 invade 🇺🇦 & that Putin has no intent 2 destroy 🇺🇦 sovereign statehood is wrong. As theoretical approach it denies agency even 2🇷🇺 (it had no choice but 2 lash out, while NATO did), while 🇺🇦 is but a pawn of great powers. Also 3/21

Sunday 18 September, daily thread number 207 covering the news and analysis of #Russia's illegal invasion.

The fundraising to help #Ukraine's army with specific items for winter stands at £900 / €1000 after 2 days which is amazing - please see the pinned tweet if you can help!
A late start today to the thread, but it's been largely quiet in #Ukraine so far this Sunday.

For all yesterday's stories check through yesterday's thread right here:

#SlavaUkraini #StandWithUkraine

In #Kramatorsk a hotel was destroyed by shelling.

#Russians will doubtless claim it was housing #Ukraine soldiers, no way to prove either way in the fog of war, but there are no reported civilian casualties in the city near the frontline in #Donetsk region.

With fog of war settling down, and dozens of new losses being discovered daily as an aftermath of #Ukraine️'s counter-offensive in #KharkivOblast, we thought maybe it's time to stop for a moment and look back at what's been done 🧵 Image
A lot, apparently. #Russia seems to have sustained unprecedented material losses. Total 533 lost units since Sep 6th to be precise:… and counting. That's #Bilohorivka on steroids kind of things.
Out of those 533, total 137 have been found destroyed:… It's important to acknowledge a lot of these have been lost much earlier when #Russia was taking over the area, and only discovered these days. Some of them known losses.
