#Ukraine: We finally can visually confirm that US-supplied M142 HIMARS are currently used for strikes deep into Russian-controlled territories - fragments of M31A1 GMLRS unitary rocket were found after a target was hit in Perevalsk, #Luhansk Oblast, 45 km from the front line.
Each M31A1 GPS-guided rocket carries 90kg of explosives accompanied with preformed steel case fragments and can hit targets as far as 84 kilometers.
Little clarification: ~90kg is the total weight of a M31A1 steel warhead that holds 23 kg of PBXN-109 explosive.

Day 121 📌 Today marks exactly four months since the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Four months of struggle by the people of Ukraine. Four months of unprecedented solidarity. Read more about the current situation in Ukraine in the update ⬇️…
EU government leaders holding a 2-day summit in Brussels approved a recommendation from the @EU_Commission to grant candidate status to Ukraine & Moldova 😍 The landmark decision immediately delivered a tremendous morale boost in both countries and was cheered widely there.
Ukrainians took to the streets twice, in 2004 & 2014, to force the government to root out corruption & come closer to the EU. 8 years ago, 🇺🇦 calling for closer relations with the EU during the Revolution of Dignity were shot & killed by police from the pro-Moscow administration

Day 120 📌 ‘It is the only country where people got shot because they wrapped themselves in a European flag. 🇺🇦 has gone through hell and high water for one simple reason: and that’s their desire to join the EU,’ – @vonderleyen said. More in our brief ⬇️…
@vonderleyen EU leaders will decide today whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, following a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday 🙏 Ukraine’s president, @ZelenskyyUa, said he had spoken to 11 EU leaders on Wednesday about Ukraine’s candidacy.
@vonderleyen After the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the #Czech government decided to suspend the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation and later to Belarus, except for humanitarian causes, till March 2023 🤷‍♀️

Day 119 📌 Russian occupational authorities proposed introducing the death penalty, the mayor of occupied Melitopol said. BTW, he was abducted at the beginning of the war but later exchanged. More on the situation in Ukraine is in today's brief:… Image
As a result of the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 592 🇺🇦 children have been injured, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on June 22. The figures are expected to be higher since they do not include casualties in areas where hostilities are ongoing 😔
Decisive battles are taking place on the territory of the #Sievierodonetsk and #Lysychansk agglomerations, and the 🇷🇺 leadership demands that its troops reach the administrative borders of the #Luhansk region by June 26, – says Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar.

1. @ELuttwak correctly warns that #Putin cannot give up the #Donetsk and #Luhansk regions, as he would loose face, and that he will therefore fight for them to the end. 1/4…
2. But #Luttwark also thinks that #Putin would be ready to allow, conduct, and accept genuine #plebiscites in the regions which could leave #Russia without the #Donbas. 2/4
CC: @Konflikt_Sicher @GSPSipo @FiS_Heidelberg @ukraine_world @intercourier_ua @TerekMedia @KyivIndependent
3. However, we and Putin know from many opinion polls that support for #separatism was always much lower than 50% in the #Donbas. See the relevant opinion polling data collected by #KMIS @PA3yMKOB @dem_initiatives and other Institutes. 3/4

1/ Point du jour 15 Juin 2016
tt d'abord un rappel, hier pas de communications car aucun mouvements réellement important à noter, d'ailleurs petit clin d’œil pour ceux qui ont "suivi", hier mon "décompte" ( je ne le met qu'en fin de semaine mais pour ref perso) était à zero :
2/ juste pour info cela retranscrit tout simplement le potentiel max Ru en fonction des forces en présence au 15 Mars et en fonction des pertes d'alors (donc projection "pente" d'alors). je note que depuis 48h il n'y a plus de mvts d'ampleurs sur le territoire Ukr.
jdcjdr ;-)
3/ il est evident que les Ru ont néanmoins un potentiel (et sous diverses formes, je l'avais évoqué maintes fois) qui est encore plus que conséquent, mais là encore, on a l'impression que Putin (ça aussi évoqué) ne veut pas se dédire du mensonge dans lequel il s'est enferré lui

1/ MAJ #UkraineMap Rapport mi journée 13 Juin 2022 - General Staff
La situation au Nord de #Kharkiv continue à fluctuer fortement mais tres localement, du fait de la proximité du territoire Ru (ils ont l'avantage d'avoir du matériel et des troupes inaccessibles aux forces UA) ImageImage
2/"enemy units focused their efforts on storming the settlements of Dolyna and Bohorodychne, but were unsuccessful. The enemy, as part of the logistics of troops, replaced more than 100 units of damaged armored vehicles."
les Ru vont avoir bcp de mal ds le coin/ terrain/rivière Image
3/ Russians preparing to attack small settlements that they must control before reaching #Sloviansk
Also reports one more time, UA army has been pushed back from the center of #Severodonetsk. now Ru are controlling most of the area. Image

L’#Ucraina esisterà ancora alla fine del conflitto?

La narrazione occidentale è sempre più lontana dalla realtà sul terreno.

Il mio nuovo articolo per #IntelligenceForThePeople 🧵
Abbiamo già visto come le narrazioni del conflitto propagandate da #Russia e Occidente divergano radicalmente:…

Tuttavia, nelle ultime settimane la versione occidentale appare sempre più distante dalla realtà sul terreno.
Lo stesso Zelensky ha ammesso di recente che circa il 20% del territorio ucraino è ormai sotto il controllo russo.
Le truppe di Kiev hanno quasi completamente perso la cittadina di #Severodonetsk e la provincia di #Luhansk.

Basen för de ryska legosoldaterna PMC Wagner har totalförstörts av ukrainska styrkor.
Kadiivka, Luhansk-regionen.

#UkraineWillResist #WagnerGroup #Luhansk
Platsen borde vara här enligt medlem:…
Enligt uppgift så ska 250-300 Wagner-knektar ha strukit med.
Kan bli lite extra kills på morgondagens rapport med andra ord om det stämmer.

Cos'è la disinformazione?
Ieri sera #Travaglio a #dimartedì
"L'idea che dietro quanto accade in #Ucraina dal 2014 ci sia #Putin è una cavolata pazzesca".
Nessun contraddittorio
è una clamorosa bugia
vediamo perché
è ampiamente documentato come l'esercito russo e gli uomini dell'FSB siano stati al comando a #Donetsk e #Luhansk dall'inizio.
è noto e pacifico che "little green men" siano stati una caratteristica dell'annessione della #Crimea
ma non solo…
Da subito, furono soldati senza insegne, equipaggiati molto bene a prendere il controllo di edifici governativi ucraini nel #Donbass.
Qui ad esempio i little green men, armati con armi russe non in dotazione agli ucraini, fuori dal municipio di #Luhansk, già il 16 aprile 2014

1/ Gen Map update : #UkraineMap #Severodonestk
Russians are pushing hard now in the city & gained about 60%-70%
some people telling you the opposite yesterday was Lies. that's simple. I waited because i had good reasons for that. I warned you all. but i can only show official
2/ statement about it. it is not possible for me to do otherwise. Intel is a job. getting infos from tiktok account and pushing your own desires and narratives is understandable but not my business. I produce less but show the truth.
this is from Luhansk gov & the situation is
3/ certainly going to get worse as Meltokine is certainly going to fall too.. but this time not enough #Ukraine -nians back up to take it back. other villages can fall.

that's also why i was showing and trying to find a suitable "exit" zone (egress) for UAarmy.
could be days..

The Ukrainian Defense Commander of #Severodonetsk is a Genius 🫡

Every war birth new geniuses and this war is not an exception. I think that for the next 100s of years military people will study #Mariupol and #Severodonetsk's defense.

The Defense Commander of #Severodonetsk takes into account that Russian forces are bad at street fighting he decided to allow #Russian forces to enter the city.


#Russian forces have bigger numbers of people, artillery, and the opportunity to use aviation in that direction.

So, the #Ukrainian commander decided to draw Russian troops into the city and drag them into heavy street combat.

🧵#100daysofwar. They said, #Ukraine would fall in max.3 days, but we surprised the whole world. Maneuvering defense, sophisticated tactics, top-level military skills. Huge motivation and spirit in the army and society. In this 🧵 some major conclusions so far 1/
Military summing up:
1A)#Russia failed in majority of attacks: #Kyiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Odesa, Mykolayiv.
1B) RU “success” in major part of #Luhansk region isn’t due to RU offensive, but rather bcs of tactical step back of #UAarmy. 2/
1C) Where UA army seriously fought in Luhansk obl (#Sievierodonetsk, Popasna, Rubizhne), Russians can’t take the towns for 3 months already!
Their only tactics is to destroy city to zero (Popasna, #Rubizhne), to occupy this empty land 3/ #ArmUkraineNow

NEW | #Russian forces continued to make incremental, grinding, and costly progress in eastern #Ukraine. Read today’s update from @criticalthreats and @TheStudyofWar:… Image
#Russian operations to advance on #Slovyansk from the southeast of #Izyum and west of #Lyman continue to make little progress and are unlikely to do so in the coming days, as Russian forces continue to prioritize #Severodonetsk at the expense of other axes of advance. Image
#Russian forces continued assaults against #Severodonetsk and #Lysychansk in order to claim full control of #Luhansk Oblast. Image

Latest intel suggests #Russia controls of most of #Sieverodonetsk per #Britain's @DefenceHQ

" The main road into the Sieverodonetsk pocket likely remains under #Ukrainian control but Russia continues to make steady local gains, enabled by a heavy concentration of artillery"
#Russia's takeover of #Sieverodonetsk "has not been without cost" per #Britain's @DefenceHQ "Russian forces have sustained losses in the process”
#Britain's @DefenceHQ assesses #Russia now sees crossing the #SiverskyyDonets River as vita as focus shifts from #Luhansk Oblast & to #Donetsk

Several potential crossing sites btw #Sieverodonetsk & #Lysychansk BUT "river line likely still remains controlled by Ukrainian forces"

The 🇷🇺 army launched an airstrike on #Severodonetsk, #Luhansk region, hitting a cistern with nitric acid at a chemical plant, even though most of the city is under control of 🇷🇺 troops 🤷‍♀️ Currently, 90% of the infrastructure is damaged, while 60% cannot be repaired.
The self-proclaimed authority of #Kherson, Kyrylo Stremousov, has announced that the region will join the 🇷🇺 banking system. Meanwhile, Kherson has been without internet and mobile connection for two days. Russian authorities blame Ukraine, while Ukraine denies the accusations.

#Russian tactics for taking towns has been very simple recently — just wipe the town with artillery and count it as "liberated". This is video of Rubizhne #Ukraine after such operation, same happened to Mariupol and is now happening to Severodonetsk

This tactic is somewhat effective because when there's no buildings left, defenders have nothing to defend — and the occupiers have nothing to occupy any more, but the latter don't really care, as their objective is territorial conquest

#RussianWarCrimes #WarCrimes
At the same time, Russia's strategic objective is to capture the whole #Luhansk & #Donetsk administrative regions. While they now already control most of the Luhansk region with only 10% left under Ukraine's control (little triangle strip around #Severodonetsk)

Children's ombudswoman of #Russia Maria Lvova-Belova showed 31 orphans kidnapped from #Mariupol & #Donetsk region in cooperation with the Investigave committee. Children aged 7-17 will spend 21 days in 'Poliany' center in the #Moscow region before being put up for adoption
The choice of Moscow suburbs (GPS 55°43'18.21"N 36°56'58.71"E) is probably not random, as this region is currently testing an experimental procedure of adoption, created for children from the #Donetsk & #Luhansk regions (according to the ombudswoman's official site)
Lvova-Belova has actively lobbied for facilitating the acquisition of citizenship for Ukrainian orphans. Since May 30 such children may receive Russian documents within 3 months after the application submission carried out by caretaker/orphanage administration
