Day 464 of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine starts with another horrendous wait to see if air defence can protect them as cruise missiles head towards them as I type.

This is THE daily thread with all the news of the brutal war in one place, updated all day (and night!)
So much happened yesterday - here's the link to the start of Thursday's thread.

Deaths from #Russia's missiles because shelters were locked
#Crimea bridge falling down?
Big explosions in #Belgorod + #Kursk regions and the rebel Russian units attack again

Almost all of #Ukraine is under threat right now. Sirens sound across the country except for a handful of western regions.

#Cherkasy, just south of #Kyiv is initially thought to be in the firing line of the missiles launched by #Russia from bombers over the Caspian Sea. Image

Sundays are often fairly quiet, even in a war it seems. But not yesterday.

One of the longest Sunday threads for over six months of fighting in #Ukraine.

If you need to catch up, here's the link for the start of yesterday's 🧵

I'll start in #Russia where a drone "stuffed with explosives" has been found near #Noginsk in Moscow region.

The 3-metre UAV weighing 85kgs "fell from the sky".
Media are saying it's one of #Ukraine's UJ-22 drones, with Canadian M112 explosive charges (unverified)

It's Friday already and here is Daily Thread No. 422 covering events in #Ukraine and #Russia's illegal war.

Yesterday was fairly quiet, but if you need to catch up on events, click and scroll here⬇️

First, one big update on this story in #Russia which broke last night.

The Kremlin has actually admitted they bombed themselves in #Belgorod! #FriendlyFire on steroids!

They also admit 2 people were injured when #Russia bombed its own city, #Belgorod.

Look at the first photo - a car blown onto the roof of a supermarket!

The Kremlin says "abnormal derailment of aviation ammunition occurred" from a Su-34 VKS aircraft.

The bomb fell off😅🤡 ImageImageImageImage

The fierce fighting around #Bakhmut and other hotspots in the east continues.

Bakhmut is 35 miles (55km) from #Kadiivka in #Luhansk region which has been under Russian control since 2014.
35 miles in 379 days!
Yesterday's link for the thread is here⬇️
Luckily, a quiet day with #Georgia's heavily Russian influenced Govt taking most of the headlines.

More death and destruction from #Russia already this morning.

Four people are dead in #Lviv region after local officials say a rocket hit a residential area.

Rescuers are still searching debris in #Zolochiv.

It's Thursday and it's Day 358 of #Russia's illegal war on its peaceful neighbour and another daily thread

Yet again the day started violently for many regions of #Ukraine with overnight missile attacks targeting critical civilian infrastructure, which is itself a war crime...
Apologies for the late start today, I've had meetings from first thing, which overran a little

First, here the link for yesterday's thread as I know a few of you like to read back in one go and others like to catch up with that they missed in the evening:
So to the overnight attack by #Russia with Cruise missiles and more.

#Ukraine says it shot down 16 out of 32 missiles. Twelve Kh-22 hypersonic missiles cannot be intercepted with current defences.

It's likely #Russia is using a high % of Kh-22 stocks before Patriot is in place

This Russian Shahed drone terror attack seems to focus in the south. From those 4 cities air defense activities are reported. Around 20 Shaheds are estimated. #Ukraine
A few Shaheds might be still on the way deeper inside Ukraine. From Mykolaiv oblast reports arrive that Shaheds might be heading for Uman.
Additionally, Odesa might be a target as well.

I haven't heard of any impacts yet.
Air alert in Kropyvnytskyi (Kirovohrad). #Ukraine #Kirovohrad #Kropyvnytskyi

Day 273 of #Putin's illegal war and here's the daily news thread.

Today, Wednesday, marks the completion of 9 months since #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine

This thread's updated live throughout the day. To check what you missed yesterday, click here:

#Ukraine tonight has accused #Russia of kidnapping mayors of various mayors in #Kherson oblast.

The Interior Ministry says invaders abducted the leaders of several communities in the region and took them to the left bank of the Dnipro when they retreated.

They remain missing
It's potentially a huge day for the #EU.
The Union is today scheduled to set its price limit for #Russia's fuel.

Two questions - can they set it at a level which can hold and damage the Kremlin, and can they get all members to agree to it.

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.

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:

Day 2⃣3⃣5⃣ of the war. #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine. Welcome to my needs feed for Sunday 16 October, all the stories in one thread updated throughout the day.

The big battles for #Bakhmut and #Kherson are already underway.

In case you missed y'day:
Let's start with #Russia's losses, which today have hit 65,000* soldiers killed in the immoral invasion of its peaceful neighbour.

Working on the ratio of 2:1 maimed to died, that's likely 200,000 lives ruined by #Putin.

* #Ukraine estimate.
The British update confirms #Russia is almost certainly running low on weapons, but there's nothing new in the daily report - I'm guessing written by the "weekend" staff!

Today we want to touch again on the topic of Ukraine's nuclear security: an analysis of the event by experts

❌ The russ occup continue to hide behind the #ZaporizhiaNPP According to The Insider milit equipment and about 500 russ soldiers are on the territory of the facility
Part of the ammunition is stored inside the power units. In this way, the "safety" of the occupiers' equipment and personnel is achieved. As of the morning of August 6, the 4th power unit of the ZNPP was disconnected from the power system
ZNPP workers are eliminating the consequences of damage to the nitrogen-oxygen station and the joint auxiliary building, which the Russians got into yesterday.

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
