Liebe Freunde,

das Lebensgefühl in #Kramatorsk und #Sloviansk ist seltsam. Gelassen verbringen die Menschen ihren Alltag. Kinder spielen im Park, während direkt vor ihren Wohnungen Schützengräben ausgehoben werden müssen - um sich gegen die Invasionstruppen zu verteidigen. 1/5
Die Bauern bringen auf einem Feld vor der Stadt die Ernte ein - während ein anderes Feld, nach dem Einschlag einer Granate, Feuer fing. Gelassenheit und Entschlossenheit verbinden sich im Widerstand der Ukrainer. 2/5
‚Wir werden siegen!‘ wiederholt der Offizier immer wieder, wenn er vom Bedarf an mehr #Artillerie, #Panzer und #Munition spricht. Er kämpft seit dem 24.2. - und ist sich so sicher, weil er die Moral seiner Leute kennt. 3/5

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.

Welcome to the weekend.
Day 157 of #Russia's illegal full-scale war on #Ukraine, but it's 8 and a half years since the start of the invasion when Putin's troops appeared on #Crimea and then later east 🇺🇦

Ukrainians fight on for freedom.
Here's the daily🧵
All the news in 1 place
The condemnation of both the castration/murder videos & bombing of #Ukraine POWs in Russian held territory, continue at high levels.

The UN says it is "shocked by the recent videos" in a statement about the torture and shooting in the head of a prisoner…
The #EU Vice-President @JosepBorrellF, commenting on the killing of around 50 #Ukraine POWs in #Donetsk is "appalled"

#Russia's Wagner mercenaries are accused of bombing the prison camp in #Olenivka, trying to make it look like a Ukraine strike.

🇺🇦🧵🗣️Another report from Kenneth Gregg #UkraineUnderAttaсk : (1/15) "This morning, starting with the activities of the Russians, we can now conclude that #Bakhmut is certainly their big target. On the #Bakhmutske-#Semyhiria line they attack with everything they have. ⬇️
2:"Most of the fighting is over open fields and small groves. In this area it is still about 10 km to our main line of defense. North of Bakhmut and around #Sloviansk they have not advanced at all - on the contrary they are being pushed back in these areas.⬇️
3:"A worrying trend the Russians show is that they have started to use Ukrainian uniforms (Nato standard) with our recognition marks. This is a war crime, but what can you expect from Russians?

So to the our successes before I bring up the 'Forgotten Kharkiv'.⬇️

2/ actually if you don't count the #Lyssychansk retreat which was only initiate for the safety of the soldiers, by direct order of the President himself, that's about 3 weeks that's Russian are not going anywhere!
I'm old enough to remember all the genius out there claiming Ukr
3/ should directly retreat and retreat again to the #Sloviansk - #Kramatorsk line of defense..
#Siversk was a "done deal" for Russian 3 weeks ago... right??? yeah bite me!
Ukr have drained the russian, stomp their momentum, shut down their will.

🇺🇦🧵🗣New update from Kenneth Gregg #UkraineRussianWar (1/12) : "The Russians haven't exactly rested on their laurels, but they are still losing ground in the #Luhansk area. Even their attacks on #Sloviansk have been standing and treading water now for a whole week.---
2:"Their morale and equipment are starting to wear off, it's hot and many of the Russian tourists are still in winter clothes. Now our artillery, with western pieces, has also started to cause panic due to accuracy. ---
3:"According to intercepted conversations between Russian soldiers and their relatives, the infantry soldiers complain about the incompetence of their artillery, many of whom have only had 1 week of training before being sent to the front. ---

Day 144 of #Russia's full scale invasion of its peaceful neighbour.

Updates throughout the day as stories unfold in #Ukraine and beyond.
First the British update shows #Russia concerned about #Ukraine's counter attack in the south
#Russia has still not taken total control of #Luhansk region despite the perception.

That's the point being made by #Ukraine's governor for the region. Serhiy Haidai says "two villages in Luhansk remain under 🇺🇦 control. Russians cannot overcome the few kilometres."

You're in the right place for all the news that matters, both the battlefield and the politics, as #Russia continues to attack #Ukraine

It's Daily🧵#142 of #PutinsWar

If you want to buy me a coffee, the link's in my profile. Thanks to all who have, I'll write personally ASAP.
Overnight #Russia complained of "an attack" by drones inside its borders. Obviously it blamed #Ukraine + published these photos.

Why Ukraine would choose to fire something tiny at a library in a non-descript town in #Belgorod they couldn't explain!

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Russia closing in on #Siversk in eastern #Ukraine's #Donbas region according to UK Intel.
However the daily update from London highlights more failings of Putin's war machine.

The 138th daily thread on #Russia's war of choice starts here.

Real signs in the last few days that #Ukraine has levelled the playing (combat) field with the arrival of long range artillery.

Even as I type rockets seem to be landing in Russian held territory. Read on...⬇️
Just 2 hours ago, at the end of yesterday's thread, I reported on explosions again in occupied #NovayaKakhovka where #Russia suffered heavy losses earlier on Sunday.

Now reports of more rockets landing in #Kherson. Yesterday evening #Ukraine pledged to regain land in the south.
Now a puzzle for you.. Just what is being transported on trains in huge quantities through #Russia?
Missiles/rockets? Logs? Rolled sheet metal? All suggested so far.

Great work @CarolynnePries1 to capture these from a webcam.
This is Uzlovaya, about 230km south of Moscow

The 137th day of #PutinsWar is underway and already more rockets and missiles are flying.

This is the start of Sunday's thread with all the news throughout the day from #Ukraine and beyond, as #Russia continues its destructive invasion of its neighbour.
#Luhansk region is where we start today, with news of a likely #Ukraine attack.

This is #Alchevsk, about 25km west of #Lugansk city

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Here's another video from #Alchevsk.
Things are really hotting (and lighting) up in the occupied town in #Luhansk.

Day 136 of #Russia's war, welcome to the daily thread documenting the most important news, events, and some of my analysis along the way.

Mercifully a fairly quite night in #Ukraine as it fights for its very existence.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
I start with news from occupied region and the #Ukraine Resistance movement.

A collaborator policeman has been shot dead in #NovayaKakhovka (#Kherson region) and two other attempted attacks which are not yet reported.

Thanks to @AlbaThunberg for help…
Nice to hear #Russia is digging deep in to its reserves. 1950s tractor-pullers now being sent to fight #Ukraine.

To be honest Ukraine's tractor army won't probably even bother retrieving these bits of scrap🤣🤣

Updated in real time throughout the day, read on!

The British intelligence update today is interesting.

#Russia continues "mobilisation by stealth" as detailed here.
In some regions quotas are given and residents are strongly urged to "volunteer"

Overnight another example of #Russia's "precision" weapons doing some aerial gymnastics in #Belgorod region and something far from precise 🤣🤣

#Russia consolidating control over #Lysychansk & #Luhansk Oblast, while likely setting its sights on #Sloviansk, per #Britain's @DefenceHQ

"#Russian forces have likely advanced up to another 5 km down the E40 main road from #Izium, in the face of extremely determined #Ukrainian resistance" per @DefenceHQ

The 133rd daily thread of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

One of Putin's closest allies confirmed it's not just about #Donbas; the goal remains regime change & to effectively conquer the whole country.

But big damage was inflicted by 🇺🇦 y'day on Donetsk.
Here's the news updated⬇️
Starting with the view from UK's Ministry of Defence Intelligence.

#Sloviansk (and #Kramatorsk) the next big targets for #Russia and losing these would be a huge psychological blow (more than Lysychansk) for #Ukraine

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
However, #Ukraine's Defence staff says they beat off a Russian offensive yesterday.

"the enemy shelled civilian infrastructure in #Siversk + #Hryhorivka. (we) inflicted significant losses on the enemy during his attempted offensive. The occupiers left."

Tuesday's thread on #Russia's war of choice starts here.

It's Day 132 of the illegal conflict.
A late start to the thread today, primarily because it's been one of the quietest days so far since the bombs started falling

Read on for all the news of #Ukraine's fight for survival
I've spent the last 30 minutes going through replies, DMs and questions etc. The most common comment is along the lines of "Is the game up for #Ukraine?"

Certainly things are not going well for Ukraine right now for reasons I'll come to shortly

The main thing to remember is:
Any sort of "peace deal" even a ceasefire, plays right into the Kremlin's hands.
Following the 2014 invasion, the #Minsk accords were foisted on #Ukraine by two western partners🇫🇷+🇩🇪. #Russia refused to allow 🇬🇧+🇺🇸 to the table.

Putin used the last years to massively..

Day 131 of #Russia's unprovoked war on #Ukraine.
In total though it's 8 years, 4 months - more than twice as long as WW1 and 2 years longer than WWII.

All the news, events and analysis as it happens, updated in real time right here in the daily thread, so scroll below!
Yesterday saw many civilian lives lost as Russia unleashed a barrage of missiles on eastern regions.

6 died in #Sloviansk, civilian buildings struck in #Kramatorsk and, as it only just made Sunday's thread, a repost of 🇷🇺 hitting a hospital in #Sumy

Three days ago I broke the news about @NHLFlyers losing a player - Ivan Fedotov arrested as he attempted to go to the States.

I can now confirm the Finnish born ice hockey star is in Severomorsk, #Murmansk to start his military service on Novaya Zemlya

Welcome to my 130th daily thread on #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine.

While #Luhansk looks to be lost, a fightback continues from the Ukrainians in the south of the country.

All the news right here in one thread...

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Two big news events overnight as #Ukraine hits #Russia in both 🇺🇦+🇷🇺

First the strike over the border in #Russia.
Officials in #Belgorod say 3 people died and four are injured.

A local TG channel helpfully put together a "highlights" video of the night's action!
#Ukraine has not yet admitted the attack in #Russia and no confirmation of what was it. But could well be an ammunition store.

A house in #Belgorod' also seems to have been targeted but I cannot verify this video.

1/ 02 Juillet 2022 - Gen staff report
No major changes whatsoever. Ru are trying to improve their positions in some areas. Heavy arty shellings still ongoing in #Kharkiv Oblast and #Severodonetsk area and everywhere they want to advance but can't do much about it..
#UkraineMap ImageImage
2/ The Amazing and Grandiose Russian is still stuck in the #Izyum #Sloviansk direction because of tiny villages for 20 days now (for #Bohorodychne ) and some others for 40 days... speaks volume of their "power". Hence my love of showing specific topo map with no change of date. ImageImage
3/ on a more serious note :
on the #Lysychansk #Lyssytschansk #Lysichansk #Лисичанськ the situation this morning seems a bit better than yesterday evening. but it's hard to have a real idea about what's going on because lots of mouvement back and forth. Maybe more news tonight. Image

1/ Point du jour - Rapport mi-journée - 26 Juin 2022
#UkraineMap #UkraineRussianWar #CarteUkraine
Situation has not changed Globally but several important moves from Russian near #Lysychansk where they try to keep their momentum in order to surround it
Gen Staff report
Part 1 -
2/ "the enemy's main efforts were focused on advancing in the directions of the settlements #Dovgenke (area) and #Mazanivka ... #Kurulka "
3/ Gen staff report part 2 -
Nothing special there except the classical use of arty as much as they can to try to suppress all ZSU #UAarmy defenses and try to block them from moving more materials or blocking troops (pin down) in certain areas.
