WarGonzo: Lyman is fucked, Russia has reportedly been forced from Yampol, Drobyshevo has either fallen or soon will.
Alexander Kots:
▶️Lyman encircled, Yampil abandoned, Drobysheve falling
▶️Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance groups active along supply road to Svatove, parts of which under AFU artillery control
▶️Russia inexplicably wasting missiles and drones elsewhere.

Has anyone made a giant statue yet to honor the Russian that offed his military recruitment officer? Image
I'm reading that the guy who shot the conscription officer did so because they mobilized his friend who had no prior military experience. This is despite govt saying only people with military experience would get conscripted.
He did it not for himself but for his friend. 🥹🥹🥹

🧵I've been reflecting on working in a hospital before #LongCovid. People often go into #healthcare to help people, not knowing that the system doesn't always allow it. I haven't been able to work for 2 yrs, but I've spent time thinking about the problematic dynamic of it all. 1/
I worked as an #OT in both inpatient #rehabilitation & acute care. I saw a huge variety of injury & disease. I understood that illness could change a whole life, that it could happen to a previously healthy person. Still none of it prepared me for it happening in my own body. 2/
I did not know the extent of disability that #viruses can potentially cause, or learn about infection-triggered illnesses. Looking back, I can think of one patient who likely had #MECFS #POTS #PEM, though it was not listed in their chart as such. I'm sure there were others. 3/

The former rector of the Moscow Aviation Institute, Anatoly Gerashchenko, had a "tragic accident" on Sept. 21, he "fell" - indeed, "flew" - down several flights of stairs and "received injuries incompatible with life". moscow-post.su/news/society/b…
#Putin's delayed speech, delivered this morning, rambled through the war being necessary to stop #Ukraine having nukes, #NATO running Kiev's army and refusing peace, Novorossiya, neo-Nazis, and annexing the Donbas, to announce partial mobilisation.

#Russia "officially" preparing to "annex" the Donbas in eastern #Ukraine.

Should be noted, the Russians had such plans in Kherson and Kharkiv, which were derailed by the Ukrainian guerrillas before the Army liberated Kharkiv.
Imprisoned #Russian oppositionist Alexey Navalny comments on that video of Yevgeny Prigozhin recruiting prisoners for the war on #Ukraine. Sees it as a clear sign of the disintegration of the Army and notes such recruits can only make it worse.

Latest @DefenceHQ update: "#Russia has highly likely lost at least four combat jets in #Ukraine within the last 10 days", a total of 55 since the invasion began. A "realistic possibility" this is because Moscow has stepped up airstrikes, and still lacks air dominance. Image
The "refusenik" problem within the #Russian Army is clearly at an operationally significant level.

#Russian soldier talking to his wife is somewhat unimpressed with the commanders and even less impressed with the #Chechen Kadyrovtsy, the "Akhmat", who "fucked off (i.e. ran away), the fucking cowards" as the #Ukrainians closed in.
In #Mariupol overnight, #Ukrainians sang the national anthem in Liberation Square, knowing it can get them arrested and worse by the #Russian occupation authorities in the city. A sense that liberation is coming is spreading.

Latest @DefenceHQ update notes the confirmation that #Russia is using #Iran's Shahed-136 drones, which have a range of 1,500 miles and were used in the attack on the MT MERCER STREET merchant tanker on 3 July 2021. Seems Moscow is using them for tactical strikes, not long-range.
Talk in #Georgia of opening a second front while #Russia is tied down in #Ukraine to liberate the occupied areas in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

If you want to challenge for Russian-protected territories, now is the moment. (See also: #Azerbaijan.)

Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia is gone from #Kharkiv & "struggling to bring sufficient reserves" to reinforce #Kherson, where an "improvised floating bridge" started two weeks ago is unfinished and #Ukraine is hitting the Dnipro River crossings faster than they can be repaired

Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Ukraine has "continued to make significant gains in the Kharkiv region" over the last 24 hours. Also notes that #Putin has lied about exports of grain from Ukraine.
#Putin's warlord-president of #Chechnya, Ramzan Kayrov, coping very hard and threatening further conquests in #Ukraine. Interestingly, this comes after Kadyrov appeared to say he was resigning.

Latest @DefenceHQ update takes note of #Ukraine's advances against #Russia in the Kharkiv Oblast, which the Russians had only lightly defended; there was also likely an element of surprise. The Ukrainians are pressing on in Kherson, too. Image
#Ukraine has liberated Kupyansk, the crucial city of #Russia's occupation administration in #Kharkiv. Her troops can be seen here in the city centre.

Gigachad Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi and Lieutenant General Mykhailo Zabrodskyi call for ATACMS and other long-range strike assets in order to negate Russia's true "Center of Gravity" and end the war.

Nothing else will do it. ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/356…
"It’s precisely this [long-range strike] capability that should be considered as the Russian army’s Center of Gravity from a military standpoint. As long as the current situation persists, this war can last for years."

"Russia’s...Center of Gravity...lies in the war’s 'remote' nature for most average Russians. Thanks to this lack of proximity, they perceive not so painfully all the losses, failures, and...costs of this war in all its senses."

Thread: 4 September 2022: Day 193 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia continues to suffer "combat fatigue and high casualties" in #Ukraine, leading to low morale and "discipline issues". Problems with pay is a big issue for the Russian Army, as well as lacking basics like food, arms, and even uniforms.
Great map by @bradyafr of #Ukraine's use of HIMARS to ravage #Russia's logistics system.

Thread: 3 September 2022: Day 192 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Ukraine's "offensive operations" around #Russian-occupied Kherson advance "on a broad front". The operation has "limited immediate objectives", but exploits Russia's weaknesses, and forces Moscow into a choice over deployment of its stretched forces.
Essentially an "Honest Trailers" version of a Russian recruitment video.

Very interesting: Photograph surfaces from #Iran showing three of #Al_Qaeda's most important leaders: Sayf al-Adel, Abu Muhammad al-Masri, and Abu al-Khayr al-Masri. Picture must be from before 2015, when Abu al-Khayr left for Syria. Doesn't look much like house arrest, does it? ImageImage

There it fucking is.

Solomon Islands' disgusting CCP puppet, soon-to-be-dictator PM Sogavare is implementing CCP military policy against the US and its allies while uprooting and destroying democracy domestically.

Any Five Eyes personnel to be expelled very soon.

Latest @DefenceHQ update focuses on the problems #Russia is having mobilising and motivating its "auxiliary forces", i.e. the #Ukrainians in the occupied territories like the Donbas. Moscow is trying terror and inducement (money), but the forces remain unreliable for offensives.
Thread on the "Wagner" unit, an instrument of #Russia's state, often wrongly referred to as a "mercenary" outfit.

To follow up on the assassination of Aleksandr Dugin's daughter last night: the balance of probability for an assassination in Moscow is always the Russian FSB, possibly with the involvement of organised crime, not the Ukrainian SBU.
#pt: It is not *impossible* to construct a motive for the Ukrainian SBU trying to assassinate Dugin, but the SBU knows what apparently most Westerners do not: that Dugin is not a domestic power player, politically or ideologically, in the Kremlin.

Latest @DefenceHQ update: "only minimal changes" along the front line in the Donbas over "the last week", after some minor #Russian advances in early August. #Ukraine moving on Kherson, increasingly frequent strikes behind the lines in the south are "stressing Russian logistics".

A video "surfaced", as they say, yesterday, showing #Finland's Prime Minister, Marin Sanna, partying a few weeks ago in an evening she described as "pretty wild". This has caused some domestic criticism, but difficult to imagine this doing her any serious harm.

Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia has had "heavy attrition" of its tanks because of a "culture of poor" work with Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA) that "dates back to the First Chechen War in 1994". Failing to "enforce low-level battle discipline" of this kind has marked the war.
#pt: The Russian army, despite the so-called "modernisation", has precious little progress to show from nearly 30 years ago in Chechnya.
