JUST IN: #BNNLithuania Reports.

Lieutenant General Valdemaras Rupsys, Lithuanian Chief of Defense said that, US forces stationed in Lithuania have shifted their stance from deterrence of Russia to combat readiness. #US #Lithuania #Russia #Ukraine #UkraineRussiaWar Image
Lithuania shares its border with Russia's Kaliningrad exclave on the Baltic Sea, with Belarus and Latvia.

Rupsys on Friday that, “The main factor used to be deterrence, the demonstration that they were here and could increase our forces at any time.
And now the situation has changed: those units are being deployed so that they can fight immediately. It’s a seamless … transition from one mode to another”.

SitRep - 17/11 - Another missilve wave hit #Ukraine

Daily events in the war between Russia and Ukraine. An overview of all fronts. Ukraine is mainly engaged - just as before the #Kherson offensive - in 'softening the supply routes' of the targets far behind the front line.

As usual we start with Russian losses. And captured and damaged equipment. Relatively low numbers compared to earlier days.

+400 men personnel
+7 tanks
+7 APCs
+6 UAVs
Today the #AFU airdefense forces shot down:

4x Kh-101 missiles
5x "Shahed-136" drones
2x Kh-59 guided missiles

In total about 25 projectiles were shot at Ukrainian targets. In Dnipro some heavy hits were heard and registrered.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! #Russian President Vladimir #Putin, in his own manner, "formalized" the rejection of the peace offer he received. On November 11, we reported...
that it would be precisely the next massive missile attack on #Ukraine's energy infrastructure that would mean #Putin's rejection of proposals to move to a peaceful settlement of the war in Ukraine on terms that the #Kremlin considered unacceptable.

#Putin also rejected an ultimatum that was put forward in parallel with the "peace offer." Now, the most influential Western "partners" will insist on the immediate transfer of #Crimea to #Ukraine with no delays and no compromises.

JUST IN: Two missiles reportedly hit Przewodow #Poland located on border with #Ukraine. Comes as Russia pounded Ukraine with missiles today. Local radio reports 2 fatalities. Poland is a NATO member
Being a NATO member, Poland could opt to invoke Article 5 of "collective defense" that an attack on one is an attack on all.

If Russia is culprit, such move would take Ukraine war to a whole new level
BREAKING: US Intelligence official confirms to AP that “Russian missiles crossed into NATO member #Poland, killing two people.”

This is quickly escalating. Poland’s PM is holding emergency meeting.

Day 2⃣4⃣5⃣ of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine.

All the news, views and analysis in one handy thread, updated throughout the day.

And if you missed anything yesterday, here's the link:

Today Britain's Ministry of Defence highlights the work of saboteurs on #Russia's rail network - and I've another example of this in the next tweet.

UK Intel points out the problems the Kremlin can be caused by individuals or small groups damaging railways.

Recently in #Bashkortostan they've found another way to sabotage #Russia's rail network, and no explosives are needed.

Forcing open relay boxes and setting light to them will severely hamper the movement of freight for a while. These boxes control automated signalling etc.

In the West we have an effort of understanding to make

"Obviously, you can’t abstractly accuse an entire nation," says DG of the Estonian Internal Security Service, Arnold Sinisalu. "But a society and a nation constitute a whole.
The state may brainwash, but the germ of chauvinism still springs from the people itself."

That is precisely how Baltic counterintelligence officers refer to Russia – not ‘it’, but ‘they’. The war in Ukraine is not Putin’s war. The cruelty is not Putin’s. The rapes, murders...
gouged eyes, hangings, and burned corpses aren’t special tactics employed by Russia’s leader. It is Russia as a whole.

"The majority of Russians are to blame," says Sinisalu.

JUST IN: #BNNLatvia Reports.

International human rights watchdog Amnesty International claimed that Latvia uses masked ‘commandos’ to abuse numerous asylum seekers by indulging in criminal acts including torture. #Latvia #Poland #Lithuania #Migrants #EU Image
On Thursday, the group released a damning report in which it gave details about Riga’s response to a refugee crisis on its border with Belarus that began last year.
Eve Geddie, director of Amnesty’s European Institutions Office said, Latvia and two EU member states, Poland and Lithuania, “continue to commit grave abuses under the pretext of being under a ‘hybrid attack’ from Belarus”.

1/For 460 days Latvia's borders with Belarus have been under a “state of emergency” which allows border guards to push back refugees & migrants and suspends the right to seek asylum. Latvia denies these human rights violations. @amnesty report, out today, tells a different story. Image
@amnesty 2/We interviewed people, some with small children, stranded at #Latvia's border in 2021-2022.
They painfully described Latvian forces using tasers on their body, beating and humiliating them and nights spent sleeping on the snow, scared of bears & wolves. Take their word for it: Image
3/Beatings, forced nudity, torture and humiliation have nothing to do with border control. Image

Thread: 3 October 2022: Day 222 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Putin publicly said on Sept. 29 that there were issues with the mobilisation he ordered on Sept. 21. This "unusually rapid acknowledged of problems highlights the dysfunction": the scope is unclear to lower officials and training perfunctory at best. Image

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

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.

When I say #RussianMobilization is nothing but more Russian failed ideas because they are collapsing. How they not see this coming? #Lithuania #Kaliningrad #RussiaIsATerroristState
