Day 301 of #Russia's 3-day bid to enter #Kyiv

Welcome along to my daily thread - here every single day without fail, trying to keep you up to date with #Ukraine's news, truth and analysis.

It's another day for landmarks, but first a link for yday's🧵

So what's special about 21 December? Well it's the solstice so days get longer from today.

It's also the day Pres Zelenskyy went abroad for the first time in the war.

And, the day #Ukraine's tally of tanks destroyed reached 3,000 (tomorrow a bigger landmark!)
I don't often retweet my own stuff, but this came through late last night and likely got a bit lost in the news around #Ukraine's President's trip abroad.

Well worth highlighting again:

Here we go then. For the 134th time, I welcome you to the daily thread covering all the news and developments from #Russia's war of choice and invasion of its peaceful neighbour #Ukraine.

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 🤣🤣

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.

Day 128 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

The illegal, insane, inhumane war which was Putin's choice.

More murder and war crimes today as the little man in the Kremlin orders revenge for the loss if Snake Island

All the news right here in one place, welcome to the daily thread
The revenge from #Russia for the anger at losing #SnakeIsland is an horrendous missile attack on residents in #Odesa/#Odessa region.

17 dead and 31 injured as rescuers work at the site.

Yet another war crime

#RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
#Putin loves symbolism and to leave calling cards.
It's no coincidence that he ordered the murderous strikes on an apartment block and two leisure complexes in #Odesa region with exactly the same delivery as #Kremenchuk - three X-22 missiles fired from Tu-22 strategic bombers.

Russian forces retreated from #SnakeIsland on June 30 following a Ukrainian missile and artillery campaign. The Russian Defense Ministry spun the retreat as “a step of goodwill.”
Read our latest report w/ @criticalthreats:… ImageImageImageImage
As ISW said earlier, the Russian defeat on #SnakeIsland will alleviate some pressure off the #Ukrainian coast by removing #Russian air defense and anti-shipping missile systems from the island, but it will not end the sea blockade.…
That's because Russian forces have access to land-based anti-ship systems in #Crimea and western #Kherson Oblast that can still target Ukrainian cargo, as well as the use of the remaining ships of the Black Sea Fleet.

1/ 30 Juin 2022 - mid day - Gen Staff report - no Global changes on the front line

#UkraineMap ImageImage

Starting a new Rus - Ukr thread

Last one ended here
No major movements on the map since my last update.
The only notable news is the reported entrance of Rus forces in Vovcherovka, 7 - 8 km south of #Lisichansk
The photos are reportedly from there but it's not known currently whether it's cleared completely ImageImageImageImage
Another interesting detail is that 2 small settlements Sinetski & Pavlograd (just across the river from #Lisichansk) are in the gray zone on the map.
The Rus probably haven't entered them likely due to being exposed to Ukr fire from the other bank 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.

3. Situación general.

No hay grandes cambios en los diferentes frentes, a pesar de la intensidad de los combates. Justo detrás de las líneas rusas se están produciendo movimientos a tener en cuenta. ISW cree que las fuerzas rusas implicadas en Severodonetsk son insuficientes. ImageImage

Second attempt at starting a new Russia - Ukraine thread....fingers crossed !

The original Mega thread ends here
There is talk that the Ukr CinC Zaluzhny & Zelensky had a meeting during which the withdrawal from #Lisichansk agglomeration was discussed.
The only feasible way is going by the road to Seversk which is not physically cut but can be shelled from Rus held territory
Situation at #Kamishevakha which is NE of Popasna & part of the Gorskoe (Hirske) - Zolotoe "bag"

Being a slow news day as far as info from the critical fronts, want to discuss an event from some days back. #Ukrainian sources released this drone video, claiming it shows a #Russian helicopter being destroyed on #SnakeIsland. Have wanted to discuss since I became aware of it on
May 8. For ~1 week, UA forces targeted #SnakeIsland (or nicer, Serpent Island, of ancient #Achilles lore) with a puzzling amount of air assets. As I reported then, it seemed evident that #Ukraine aimed to recapture the island as a PR coup. The island is also strategic as an AA
asset, has legal territorial ramifications, and is potentially important long term for commercial traffic control of the black sea including #Ukraine's vital exports of grains & wheat. The #Russian MoD later claimed there was such an assault & that significant air & other assets
