Dans le secteur #Luhansk, il est avéré que les troupes recrutées dans les prisons par le MoD 🇷🇺 ont une très faible valeur militaire et les cas de désertions se multiplient👇 ImageImage

Russian forces continued limited offensive operations northeast of #Kupyansk and south of #Kreminna on May 27. Geolocated footage published on May 26 indicates that Russian forces likely advanced NW of Bilohorivka, #Luhansk Oblast (12km south of Kreminna). ImageImageImage
2/ The Ukrainian General Staff reported on May 27 that Russian forces conducted unsuccessful offensive operations near Bilohorivka and Masyutivka, #Kharkiv Oblast (13km northeast of Kupyansk).
3/ A Russian milblogger claimed that Russian forces recaptured several recently lost positions southeast of Bilohorivka, although ISW has not observed visual confirmation of this claim. Image

1. To defeat the #RussianInvasion IMO #Ukraine needs to destroy the rail and road connections from Western Russia to Eastern Ukraine. They also need to interrupt the Russian ability to arm especially artillery ammunition and tanks. The maps tell me Ukraine may be doing it.
2. I have my Google Earth Pro updated with NASA Firms fires data on a constant feed. I spotted these today. The ones near #Voronezh #Rossosh and #StaryOskol caught my eye. They are all near rail lines and the ones near Stary Oskol are in what appears to be a steel production Image
3. facility that would be a good candidate for production of the steel blanks that are needed to fabricate artillery ammunition. Here is Stary Oskol. It appears to be a factory near a mining facility. Old-timey Stalinist industry practice of the factory near the mine. Image

1. Thursday saw #Russian tactical situation worsen around #Bakhmut. Despite #Prigozhin's warnings to the Russian command of the need to reinforce Russian flank at #SakkoiVantsetti, the updated map indicates that Ukraine opened this new line of attack and was already successful. Image
2. The loss of this key position will allow the Ukrainians to move south towards #Bakhmut over very favorable ground. In preparation Ukraine conducted artillery strikes on #Paraskoviika and #Krasnopolivka.
In the south Wagner moved to reinforce the approach to #Klishchiivka with
3. prisoner and mobilized forces that quickly suffered heavy casualties from HIMARS strikes. While the Russian north and southern flanks continue to disintegrate, the Ukrainians have apparently begun a tactic of falling back, out the the area of expected Russian artillery Image

Russian forces continued limited assaults along the Svatove-Kreminna line on May 16 and are reportedly deploying additional manpower and equipment from #Belarus to reinforce their positions in #Luhansk Oblast. Image
2/ The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces conducted offensive operations in the vicinity of Masyutivka (about 13km northeast of Kupyansk) and Novoselivske (about 16km northwest of Svatove).
3/ Russian milbloggers continued to claim that unspecified elements of the 6th Combined Arms Army (Western Military District) captured Masyutivka and pushed Ukrainian forces across the western bank of the Oskil River on May 15.

1. #Ukraine continues shaping operations south of #Bakhmut. As the #Russian forces are focused on the center of Bakhmut and seek to advance on Ukrainian forces in the city, Ukraine continues to prepare what appears be a move to surround the seemingly oblivious Russians.
2. Today, Ukraine in control of high ground, commenced artillery strikes on a broad area of the southern Russian-held territory in possible preparation for an advance. By hitting rear areas Ukraine eliminates Russian reserve forces & puts their supplies and ammunition at risk. Image
3. In addition to the artillery strikes, Ukraine is conducting aerial reconnaissance that resulted in destruction of a Russian anti-air system as far away as #Kodema. Image

Hello everybody - let's get the show on the road for another week!

It's the original, the one & only daily🧵with all you need to know about what's happening in #Ukraine's defence against #Russia, which has reached day 446.

Catch up on Sunday's news here:
More very damaging losses for #Russia yesterday.

#Ukraine's figures show almost 7% of all destroyed artillery systems happened in the last 24 hours.

Vehicles, fuel tanks and special equipment also above the mean as well as killed soldiers.
#RussiansGoHome Image
The British update today questions #Russia's air defence.

It's always been a problem for Moscow after sending most of its domestic protection to #Ukraine, only to have to bring some back as #Kyiv shows more ability to hit long range targets.

Western #Luhansk/Eastern #Kharkiv axis

#Russian forces conducted ground attacks northeast of Kupyansk and along the Kupyansk-#Svatove line on May 14. Russian and #Ukrainian sources did not report any Russian ground attacks near #Kreminna. Image
2/ A prominent Russian milblogger claimed that "sluggish" fighting continues b/w Novoselivske & Kuzemivka (13km NW of #Svatove), & that elements of the RU 1st Guards Tank Army have established first lines of defense along the eastern side of the rail line near Novoselivske.
3/ The milblogger claimed that Russian forces withdrew from Novoselivske on an unspecified date because the settlement is destroyed and not worth defending, and emphasized that Russian forces still control Kuzemivka.

1. The war comes to #Luhansk. Far from the front, Luhansk city has been beyond the range of Ukrainian missiles so it is used for Russian and LNR command and logistics. In the past two days, Ukraine has attacked structures there used to repair Russian weapons and command centers. Image
2. Russia confirms UK Storm Shadow cruise missiles were used in the attacks. Russia also confirms the Storm Shadow attacks were coordinated with US supplied ADM-160 Miniature Air-Launched Decoy missiles (MALD)s. Image
2. Developed in the 90s by DARPA these inexpensive MALD decoys can be programmed to mimic any aircraft and create a dilemma for Russian anti-air defense operators who have to commit their dwindling defensive system to pursue harmless decoys while the real attack with Storm Shadow

Welcome to Saturday's #UkraineWar thread on Day 444 of #Russia's invasion.

All the news as always throughout the day in one handy thread, but with a fun #Eurovision twist today which I'll explain in the next tweet.

If you want to buy me a coffee there's a link in my bio🙏💙💛
So what's all this about #Eurovision ?

Well to mark #Ukraine's "hosting" of the final in #Liverpool tonight, in my tweets today there will be winning song titles🎶 in some of the posts (not all)

Just for fun. Reply if you spot one, as it will help fight the shadow ban on my a/c
Give yourself bonus points if you know the country and year the song won!

Anyway if you missed anything yesterday, you can review Friday's thread here. A day when we had all kinds of everything going on:

#Ukraine: Today's new updates from #UkraineWar: 1. At #Bakhmut UA East Command claims they have liberated 17.3 sq km N & S of the city. UA commanders say better weather & arrival of US IFV & weapons have made significant difference. #tweet100 THREAD
#Ukraine: 2. RU forces NW of #Bakhmut have been pushed away from 00506 supply road back towards the #Berkhivske reservoir. In yet another rant, #Prigozhin says UA now threaten the "surrounding of RU in Bakhmut". #tweet100 Image
#Ukraine: 3. UA commanders, contrary to what #Prigozhin said, say it was Wagner troops that fled, NOT RU regulars. RU MOD claimed that its troops were relocating to more "advantageous defensive positions". Reportedly a video of RU troops fleeing: #tweet100 ImageImageImage

Multiple explosions in Luhansk.

Confirmed by Russian and regional sources.

#Ukraine #Luhansk
Storm Shadow Strike

The trajectory of these missiles and the fact that they hit so far behind the frontline would suggest this was a Storm Shadow strike.

Preliminary reports claim the missiles hit a military complex outside of Luhansk.

#Ukraine #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk? Falsehood” Image
‘It was not #Ukraine that #murdered the people of #Donbass and #Lugansk

Sometimes anti-#Ukrainian #propaganda uses falsehoods – e.g. #fabricated documents or photos, through which it gives a completely new, #untrue context – or simply untruth.
This is the case here. In the post we read that the current Ukrainian authorities "#murdered the #people of #Donbass and #Luhansk due to their #ethnic origin."

Hello again. It's Friday 12 May + Day 443 of the #UkraineRussiaWar

I'm back again. Another daily thread for all the news that matters in one place.

Two big developments y'day - #Ukraine's counter offensive prep + long range weapons arrive! Catch up here:
First a strange tale from the far east of #Russia where a private helicopter cut through power lines during a "hard landing"

The Mi-2's landing cut off power to the Transneft station in Primorsky Krai.
It's so remote it took 2 days to find the chopper & the pilot's disappeared! ImageImageImageImage
A big increase in #Russia's manpower losses in the last 24 hours. Still a lot of equipment being hit by #Ukraine too.

Welcome to the #UkraineRussiaWar news thread for Day 442 of the full invasion.

All the news in one handy place, updated throughout the day, sprinkled with my analysis.

Busy yesterday? Catch up with a click and scroll of Wednesday's news, here⬇️

Fairly quiet again overnight. But a couple of stories inside #Russia's borders to highlight

In #Kursk region there were power cuts after reports of shelling in the village of #Tyotkino

Local officials say 5 rockets from #Ukraine hit the electricity substation in the settlement.
Earlier, #Russia claimed a council building was attacked by drones in #Bryansk region.

The Governor said "a UAV of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired at an administrative building in the town of #Starodub."
There were no casualties.

Wednesday 10 May
Day 441 of this terrible war.
At least #Ukraine has woken relatively peacefully today in contrast to most recent days.

All the news on #Russia's invasion, all day in one thread. If you want to buy me a coffee please see my bio for the link💙💛
So y'day was another violent & busy day as #Russia celebrated Victory Day but with zero victory to salute in its illegal invasion of #Ukraine

More deaths by fire, setbacks in #Bakhmut and #Wagner being labelled terrorists by more countries. Catch up here:
#Russia's losses in the last 24 hours show a marked decrease in he amount of equipment destroyed compared to the recent trend.

However, #Ukraine is killing more and more soldiers as Russians continue kamikaze tactics in #Donetsk with the one resource they have plenty of: people. Image

Welcome along to the daily thread for Day 440 of the war in #Ukraine

More deadly missile attacks launched in the early hours this morning by #Russia on what is supposed to be one of the sacred days in the calendar, 9 May.
#Russia has no victory to celebrate.

All the news here⬇️
It was another busy day yesterday, a lot of news from the battlefields of #Ukraine and beyond too.

For a catch up on anything you missed on Monday, click and scroll down from this link:

So during the night #Russia launched no fewer than 25 Cruise missiles - but #Ukraine's air defences managed to shoot down 23 of them.

In the first wave 8 Kalibrs were fired from Black Sea ships. Then at 4am 17 Kh-101/555s were fired by ships over the Caspian Sea. Image

🇬🇧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"🤡

Another weekend beckons, but every day is the same on the frontline in #Ukraine.

Welcome to Daily thread number 436 of #Russia's illegal invasion.

If you like these threads please consider buying me ☕️ see my bio for the link. It's been a really tough slog this week.
A quieter start to the day than the last couple, which have been crazy to be honest and back to the bad old days of a year ago in #Ukraine.

If you missed something yesterday, click and scroll through yesterday's thread right here:

The UK's daily intel report inspects the rails of #Russia after the spate of sabotage attacks recently. These attacks far more believable than the pantomime drone strike on the Kremlin.

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)
