1/ Operational situation update/ #russian_invasion in #Ukraine on March 3, 2023
Situation is still evolving in North & East #Bakhmut
even if it's quite difficult to assess the "true" FEBA line we still can draw some lines...
#UAarmy is behaving according to plan
2/ Ukr repelled Ru attacks in the areas of #Bilohorivka in Luhansk region and #Spirne, #OrikhovoVasylivka, #DubovoVasylivka, #Hryhorivka, #Bohdanivka and #Bakhmut (several directions except the one where they Voluntarily decided to withdraw) in Donetsk region.
situation is ok
3/ Also Ru shelled the area or directly : #Rozdolivka, #Vasyukivka, #Zaliznyanske, #OrikhovoVasylivka, #DubovoVasylivka,#Ivanivske, #ChasivYar Yar, #Klishchiyivka, #Kurdyumivka, #Ozaryanivka, #Dyliyivka, #Mayorsk

This is what the Genocide of the Ukrainian Nation looks like.
Russia did something similar in Grozny (Chechnya), #Georgia, Idlib, Arikha, Sarmin (#Syria).
#Mariupol, #Severodonetsk, #Volnovakha, #Popasna, #Liman were destroyed... The same is done in #Bakhmut, #Soledar.⬇️
2. Wherever the Russian soldier goes, there is murder, rape, looting and destruction. #Russia is a country of killers.

Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump

Gradually, and then Suddenly

by @witte_sergei

#NATORussiawar #Ukraine
Since #Russia’s surprise decision to voluntarily withdraw from west bank #Kherson in the first week of November, there has been little in the way of dramatic changes to the frontlines in #Ukraine.

In part, this reflects the predictable late autumn weather in Eastern Europe, which leaves battlefields waterlogged and clogged with mud and greatly inhibits mobility.

#Russian occupiers have changed the tactics of conducting hostilities in the #Bakhmut region of the Donetsk region.

Hello there!

100 days (3 months) like that would mean 74000 casualties 8000 pieces of important equipment/material

1/ Operational situation update/ #russian_invasion in #Ukraine on October 14, 2022
The situation is evolving in a positive way for #UAarmy in the #Luhansk area but Russians are resisting in a lots of places. Terrain helps to slow down the advance.
but UA still moving forward! Image
2/ The Kraken Regiment, SOF reported that they have officially liberated the settlements of #Kyslivka and #Kotlyarivka East of Kupiansk. now they are clearly heading as Ru reported yesterday to the next massive next defense line just before the main highway north of #Svatove Image
3/ so Ukrainian troops are now in control of the highway and railway just on the Kharkiv-Luhansk administrative limit (in purple line)
We are waiting for Kuzemivka to fall, and then the progress would be total in that area.
#Svatove is not far on the horizon. (soon this map!!-) Image

I’ve gotten a lot of questions this week about #YevgenyPrigozhin’s public statement about his role as founder of the #WagnerGroup.The incoming is almost too much to handle so I thought I’d lay down a few thoughts here for journalists and other interested parties. 🧵 Image
1/#Prigozhin has had a kind of coming out party over the last few weeks with the buzz surrounding the release of a video showing him making a recruiting pitch to prisoners in a #Russian penal colony. The timing is, of course, curious. Image
2/We can get into the significance of the fact that the prison pictured is in the Mari El Republic in a separate thread--but suffice it to say there are a lot of stakeholders w/ overlapping interests co-located there. Image

Thanks to @NLwartracker : some clue about soldiers rotation now /#Soledar

2/ "having experienced regular troops rotate to the hinterland to recoup and be replenished with new fresh recruits who have received thorough training in recent months. Their place was largely taken by the so-called TDF battalions"
3/ "militias such as o. a. Azov, international fighters battalions and officers who were extremely motivated. What was also noticeable for some time was that from time to time criticism came from these troops about a lack of heavy (western) weapons and artillery..."

My latest for @opendemocracyru on the (comparatively!) "soft" occupation of northern #Luhansk #Donbas east #Ukraine. Russia has various occupation formulas and understanding how they are trying to rule here is important. #RussiaUkraineWar THREAD…
Russia claims it has "liberated" the "Ukraine-occupied territories of the Luhansk Peoples Republic." In practices this means obliterating all the cities under government control, depopulating them, but capturing the rural north with minimal force. This is region I describe. 2/

Hi there. Tuesday 16 August - Daily thread number 174 of #Russia's illegal war.

Updated in real time, all the news and analysis from #Ukraine and beyond relevant to the conflict⬇️

It certainly looks like the Kremlin's trying to take revenge for the attack on Wagner mercenaries
In many cities of #Ukraine it's been an almost incessant night of air-raid sirens and explosions.

It's continuing now and started yesterday evening - if you missed anything, scroll through the thread for Day 173 here:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

So right now reports of ANOTHER 7 missiles fired at #Kharkiv, which looks worst affected by tonight's "revenge attacks" by #Russia.

Around 100 Wagner troops may have been killed in #Popasna yesterday, so during the night wave after wave of attacks on #Ukraine.

Not a very smart russian so-called "war correspondent" Sreda revealed the location of PMC #Wagner in occupied #Popasna The results were not long in coming: soon a couple of #HIMARS visited #wagner_group_pmc 🚀. As result, too many have been killed, including commanders of Wagner
PMC #Wagner under the rubble☠️
remains of PMC #Wagner in occupied #Popasna Luhansk region. The #Wagner Group is a private, illegal special force that secretly carries out the Kremlin's criminal orders.

Welcome to a new week and the daily thread for Monday on #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine

Day 173

A manic end to yesterday - I'll recap a little, but if you want to scroll through, here's the link:

Firstly, you guys got me to 20,000 followers, so thank you all so much💙💛

Honest reporting, fact-checked as much as humanly possible, but I still know right from wrong.

This week I have a lot of commentary work, but will try to be as quick as ever with updates throughout.
News breaking right now is another night-time attack on #Kharkiv

There have been multiple explosions in the city so far and more rockets on the way according to tracking.

The missiles have landed near the centre according to early reports

#Popasna (occupied): Wagner HQ hit, Russians believe that with HIMARS. A nice part of it is that Russians do Russians as always - previously, a video reportage from that location emerged. Good job again, comrades "Russian war correspondents", keep it up!
(For me the location looks like a yard at VRZ, but those were very similar all around Popasna, so it may be Cheryomushki or any other neighbourhood in the ruined city)
#Popasna: OK, it's #12, Myronivska St (just near Cheryomushki that I've mentioned) - the house had a shelter that the Russian Wagner clowns used as their HQ.

I hope you get the chance for a peaceful and relaxing Sunday. That's something many thousands in #Ukraine haven't had for almost 6 months.

It's Day 172 of #Russia's invasion and here's the daily thread with all the news and analysis you need, updated throughout the day⬇️
Quite a bit of late action on yesterday's thread. You can scroll through yesterday's thread here if you need a catch up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Potentially good news from @amnesty

The organisation's pledged to have its' "#Ukraine report" examined by independent experts.

Amnesty International says it "wants to understand what exactly went wrong" according to Deutsche Welle.

Appointing @AgnesCallamard perhaps?

This is the start of the daily thread documenting #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine.

It's Day 164 if you're counting (me too!)
All the news in one place, check back throughout the day.

DMs open for tips, all appreciated, as are any coffees donated (see my profile)😉
We ended yesterday wondering if the Dar'ivky Bridge just outside occupied #Kherson had been hit.

No update on that yet, but #Ukraine has claimed hits on 6 ammo dumps, numerous weapons and command posts in #Chornobaivka #Oleshki #Beryslav #Bruskinskyi and Kherson city itself.
#Ukraine is already hitting #Russia's stores again this morning.

This video from occupied #Makiivka (RU #Makeevka) - a lot of explosions followed the first strike, so looks likely to be an another ammunition dump.

Lots happening in the last couple of days, huge fires break out in the last hour at the #Verkhnokamianka refinery due to shelling and strikes, the first of which started last night, and intensified greatly today. This large refinery is at the last critical junction of the Image
Lysychansk salient. Capture of this junction and/or #Siversk would complete the Lysychansk Severodonetsk encirclement. Will update further soon, travels once again delayed my updates, as brave soldiers on the ground on each side battle furiously for these critical positions. Image
#Popasna itself, the supply point for the RU forces executing the encirclement from the south and rear, is being mercilessly shelled by #Ukrainian forces. Despite their claim to being outgunned 10 to 1 in artillery, it certainly lately does not seem so in these areas where
