Good morning (or evening) to you all on Tues 4 October.

This is the start of my daily thread for Day 223, documenting #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine

If you missed the MUSKalculations yesterday evening, you need to scroll through Monday's thread:

Another blow to #Russia as @nvidia finally announces it's stopping all operations in the Terrorist State.

The company makes chips, and though it had already suspended export, it kept a base there "to support employees"

(Paywall but you can listen free)…
Plenty of smoke in #Donetsk on Monday evening.
Still no reports from the Occupiers as to what happened in the Occupied city.

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 Image

Thread 1/4 Am horrified by iresponsible behaviour of @BishopDorking + @nickbaines in allowing themselves to serve propaganda purposes of Kazak govt/ giving credibility to event designed to further propaganda of repressive Regime with grim record on #FoRB.…
2/4 Kazak govt paid for/organised this event (which the bishops publicise). Worth recalling these words from @hrw “Political reforms promised in 2019 have not led to meaningful improvements in the country’s poor human rights record.”…

It's time for a big thread 🧵 about the global triple crisis in fuel, food and fertilizers.
When it started, how it continues, and what lies ahead amid Russia's war on Ukraine in Europe and the growing Sino-American bifurcation of the global system. #realpolitik #geoeconomics
Food comes first.
@yaneerbaryam is the complex systems scientist who predicted the Arab Spring by indicating in his research in early 2011 that widespread violence would occur if skyrocketing global food prices (surging Food Price Index) were not reduced.… Image
US policies on ethanol which means a huge amount of US corn is used to power cars rather than food & commodity market deregulation in late 90s were major cause of skyrocketing food prices. The peaks in the Food Price Index were the triggers of the food riots and the Arab Spring.

Welcome to Thursday's daily thread on #Russia's war.
It's Day 211 of non stop shelling and killing.

#Ukraine needs your help, if you can spare anything, please consider donating to our Fundraiser as we're falling behind the target…
Wednesday was remarkable.

From pathetic Putin's ramblings/partial mobilisation, to the street protests in #Russia, to the prisoner swap deal which saw all 5 Britons released, ending with Zelenskyy's focused and powerful, history-making speech at the #UN

Last night there were big queues at #Russia's southern border with #Georgia.

Presumably men trying to flee before they receive the dreaded call-up to fight in #Ukraine.

Yesterday there were reportedly long queues at the Finnish border and flight tickets selling out.

Russians are fleeing wherever they can to escape the conscription.
Long traffic lines at the 🇷🇺/🇬🇪 border. Looks like some people decided to leave the car and continue the final stretch to the border on foot.

Thread: 20 September 2022: Day 209 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
#Russia "officially" preparing to "annex" the Donbas in eastern #Ukraine.

Should be noted, the Russians had such plans in Kherson and Kharkiv, which were derailed by the Ukrainian guerrillas before the Army liberated Kharkiv.
Imprisoned #Russian oppositionist Alexey Navalny comments on that video of Yevgeny Prigozhin recruiting prisoners for the war on #Ukraine. Sees it as a clear sign of the disintegration of the Army and notes such recruits can only make it worse.

Hello and welcome to Friday, which is Day 205 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Here's the daily thread, with all the news that matters.
If you want to flick through yesterday's stories, be my guest:

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine
Generally a quiet night in #Ukraine. The usual shelling from #Russia|ns in the likes of #Nikopol and #Sumy, but even in the latter fewer than 60 grads fired in the region in the last 24 hours, which although it sounds horrendous, is well down on usual daily figures.

There were four slight injuries in #Kharkiv when rockets landed early this morning.

Two adults and minors aged 5 and 17 suffered slight shrapnel wounds in the Slobidskyi district of the city.
There's reported to be a car burning.

Po dwóch dobach ofensywy #Azerbaijan przeciwko #Armenia:

- działania zbrojne trwają
- #Armenia nie otrzymała wsparcia #Rosja i #OUBZ

Aktualizacja wątku👇#Thread 1/n
Rozpoczęty w nocy z 12/13 września przez #Azerbejdżan masowy ostrzał artyleryjski oraz naloty dronów na terytorium #Armenii, ze zmienną intensywnością, są kontynuowane.

Nie doszło do lądowej inwazji/masowego wkroczenia wojsk #Azerbejdżan na terytorium #Armenii, jednak poszczególne fragmenty terenów przygranicznych w ormiańskich prowincjach Gegharkunik, Wajac Dzor i Sjunik zostały zajęte przez żołnierzy azerskich (ok. 10 km2)

On September 6, 2022, the political prisoner Rufat #Khamidulin was released from the pre-trial detention center, replacing the measure of restraint from arrest in the pre-trial detention center to a written undertaking not to leave.

Thanks to the public defense carried out by human rights activists and Rufat's wife, the preventive measure was replaced.

The political criminal case against him has not been closed; there is no transparent and objective investigation of his case.

The authorities did not conduct an objective and transparent investigation into the case of torture against Rufat - not a single employee was held accountable. History of Rufat:

From the very beginning of the war, many #Sanctions have been imposed against Russia, which in one way or another have affected the economies of Russia and Kazakhstan. But, what does Kazakhstan lose and gain from anti-Russian sanctions?
