#Dnipropetrovsk region - again huge artillery fire on #Nikopol with one dead and 3 injured.

🇬🇧Welcome to Day 437 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

If you are citizen of the Commonwealth, Happy Coronation Day, or if you're a Republican, just enjoy the weekend😅

This is the daily thread for Saturday with all the news in one thread, updated throughout the day.
Let's start in occupied #Crimea, where chat sites make pleasant reading this morning:

08:04 "A loud bang was heard in the #Krasnogvardeyskoye district"
08:05 "a good roar sounded. Dzhankoy-Krasnogvardeyskoye"
08:05 "strong 'cotton' in Krasnogvardeyskoye."

Here's what was seen
#Russia's Occupiers on #Crimea insist air defence worked in the north of Crimea "there were no casualties or destruction"

Oh but then the Kerch Bridge was unexpectedly closed. Guards told these people "threat of an attack" but later authorities say it's "for technical reasons"🤡

Hello again and thanks for reading, this is Thursday's #RussiaUkraineWar thread.

It's Day 435 since #Russia launched its full invasion.

I am still recovering from yesterday - what a day. Relive it here:
Some breaking news, we are learning about repeated explosions in #Zaporizhzhia this morning.

S-300 anti aircraft missiles again being used by #Russia to attack civilians, but monitoring groups say one exploded just after launch, before it crossed the frontline.

It's noisy.
The weather has improved in #Ukraine. But though the ground may be drying out a little on the frontline, conditions are still incredibly tough.

Here's the only viable route for #Ukraine to/from #Khromove (then beyond to #ChasivYar)

Before I go to bed at nearly light please see just how Russia was caught funding and staffing these fake separatist movements and attacks, including Odesa. They admit it.

First review this conversation of Putin advisor Sergey Glazyev where he discusses creating false flags in
#Kharkiv, #Crimea, #Odesa and #Donbas and funding fake separatists movements and staging riots.
Then review collection of emails from Putin advisor Vladislav Surkov, who supplied death squads and shooters to hunt Maidan protestors and conduct hybrid warfare using fake Russian separatists…

Day 426 of #Russia's needless and disastrous full invasion and war in #Ukraine.

A reasonably quiet start to Tuesday 25 April.
Need a quick recap of yesterday's news? Click below:


The level of #Russia's losses in the last 24 hours remains in line with recent days. Another 690 killed in #Ukraine and we remain on course for 200,000 in mid-May.

Also note a very large 31 vehicle/fuel tanks.

#RussiansGoHome Image
British Intel today comments on the figures. They are slightly behind the 8-ball because as readers here will know, the trend is slightly up again. But yes, down from the insane numbers when #Russia was launching non stop attacks with cannon fodder.

Hello and welcome to the daily "#Ukraine" thread for Day 424 of the awful and illegal war started by #Russia.

For those of us in #England, happy St George's Day. It's also London Marathon day, so let's wish luck to this remarkable man: #StandWithUkraine

Yesterday we saw #Russia's brotherly love for Eton Musk. Russian advances in #Bakhmut. Explosions in occupied #Melitopol as well as usual attacks on the liberated part of #Kherson and #Kharkiv.

Review anything you missed by clicking and scrolling⬇️

For the first time the @TheStudyofWar states that #Ukraine troops have claimed land south of the river (left bank) in #Kherson region.

I'm not 100% convinced. I'd say this coastal region is uncontrolled, with very regular sorties by 🇺🇦 tactical squads:…

And so begins the daily thread for Day 423.
This is the only 🧵you need for all the news about #Ukraine and its defence against #Russia's illegal invasion.

Missed something yesterday? It's all here:

Quite a good 'haul' for #Ukraine in the lat 24 hours on the battlefield.

Four anti-aircraft systems and three "special equipment" items could be crucial ahead of the counter-attack.

In addition, #Russia lost another 680* soldiers.

*estimate by #Kyiv Image
London today gets around to countering some of the masses of disinfo #Russia creates, which trolls, bots and useful idiots gleefully spread.
