For months now I have been saying the #Ukrainians would use a bite and hold strategy taking bits here and there until the Russian Army collapsed. Ahh, feels good to be right. The Russian's have lost the Battle of Kherson, though mopping up will likely take some days as stragglers
deserters and dead enders get captured, pocketed and annihilated. I always dismissed the idea that Ukraine would launch sweeping blitzkrieg style armored thrusts. That kind of army requires years and a lot of safe space to build, things Ukraine did not have. Ukraine used what she
have and what she was given masterfully. Now granted I am a nobody. Yet my line was the same as retired general officers (western) and even a few Russians. People with actual formal training (I never got past Spc-4 or bachelors) and educations that reach Ph.D level reading if not

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/

1/3 Recently, our forces have withdrawn in an organized manner from #Sievierodonetsk , Hirske, and Zolote. It’s the right decision that will save lives and equipment. Russian propaganda is trying to picture it as their great achievement, but it’s a Pyrrhic victory for them. Image
2/2 It took “the world's second army” 120 days to take the small town of Zolote. They threw everything they had on these towns and faced enormous losses. And all they get is the occupation of the half-destroyed territory, which won't last long.
3/3 Meanwhile, 🇺🇦 soldiers, with a huge disadvantage in artillery and air defense fought bravely and thoughtfully. If our allies gave us enough weapons, we would have already stopped Russians. We are defending the world from total chaos, and we need help.

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

⚡️#Sievierodonetsk doesn’t exist anymore. 🇺🇦soldiers started leaving the city in organized manner. It’s not possible to hide and fight effectively there.121 days of incredible and professional defense despite quantity superiority of the enemy. What is important here?1/
1) Army of #Russia can proceed only by complete destruction of the areas. Tactics is simple as “scorched land”. They couldn’t win in terms of tactics and planning. That is why less numerous units were standing firmly against so called “2d army” for more than 4 months. 2/
2) #Ukraine has 3 main goals: keep the land, keep the army and exhaust #Russia’s army up to maximum. Battle for #Sievierodonetsk was more and more about exhausting RU skilled human resources last weeks. And now it is about saving #UAarmy units, who are our main resource. 3/

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.

#Russia rose to become #India's second biggest supplier of oil in May, pushing #SaudiArabia into third place but still behind #Iraq which remains No. 1…
Despite the harshest Sanctions ever on a country, #Russia earned what is very likely a record 93 billion euros in revenue from exports of oil, gas and coal in the first 100 days of the war in #Ukraine…

#Sievierodonetsk wurde von der ukrainischen Armee vollständig zurück erobert!😍


* RU Elitetruppen verschlissen
* ausländisches Freiwilligenregiment (Georgier, Österreicher, Briten, Belarussen etc.) mischt seit 40 Stunden mit
* Artillerie in #Lyssytschansk
Große prorussische Accounts flippen gerade völlig aus vor lauter Wut. Man kann das durchaus als Gegenbeleg durch die russische Seite lesen.

Arestovych hat das vor zwei Tagen angekündigt und sprach sogar von einer gezielten Falle für die russische Armee. Ich hielt das für reines "Getöse".

Noch ist die russische Armee gegenschlagfähig - aber es sieht tatsächlich so aus, als ob er recht gehabt hat.

🧵#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

Pertes #Russes estimées en #Ukraine
on passe la barre des 30k tués (même à 10% près cela reste cela reste symbolique - 3 mois de guerre totale, du tres classique et cela induit plus ds ts les cas 60k/70k troupes formés et "compétentes" HS.)
demain les tableaux de stats MAJ.
2/ Rapport du jour : Les frappes aériennes/missiles RU se sont poursuivies hier et pendant toute la nuit, principalement dans l'Est et le S-E du pays. Karkiv a encore été visé et touché uniquement pour que la vie n'y reprenne ps son cours et pour que les populations fuient
3/ (tirs directs de Belgorod qu'il faudra bien penser à "traiter" si on veut que cela s'arrête), et également tirs de missiles depuis la mer sur #Mykholaiv (il resterait donc bien des variantes #Kalibr ss marin & defenses cotières etc)
L'activité aérienne RU a également augmenté

3/ #Belarus has strengthened the protection of the border with #Ukraine, there is a high chance of direct participation of the Belarusian military forces in the war against Ukraine
