We've reached Day 175 of #PutinsWar.

#Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine continues.

This is the start of the daily thread with all the news and views regarding the war.

If you want to scroll through yesterday's 🧵 here's the link

Thankfully another quiet night. It's unlikely to be a coincidence that it came after #Ukraine's successful strikes on bases in #Crimea.

Both sides continue to suffer heavy losses at the front but logistics are becoming a big problem now for #Russia.
One #Ukraine city that was shelled this morning is #Mykolaiv/#Nikolaev.

#Russia shelled the Mohyla university. The mayor published these photos of the building, adding that just this week he'd shot video to show there was no military activity there.

🕯 Minuto Nazionale del Silenzio
I russi hanno ucciso il 42enne Oleksandr Nedaleshko vicino alla sua casa nel villaggio di Mykulychi nella regione di Kyiv. I militari sono venuti a casa dell'uomo al mattino, hanno chiamato il proprietario dal cortile
Quando Oleksandr è uscito, gli hanno sparato. Altre 5 persone furono uccise in questo modo quel giorno.
Oleksandr ha trascorso tutta la sua vita a Mykulychy. Subito dopo la scuola, è andato a lavorare nel settore edile. #StandWithUkraine️
Gli abitanti del villaggio dicono che era un ottimo artigiano.
All'età di 20 anni, l'uomo iniziò a frequentare una giovane vedova, Iryna Slepchenko, assumendosi la responsabilità dei suoi quattro figli. La coppia ha vissuto in un matrimonio civile per più di due decenni.

Olga Chumak è nativa della regione di Vinnytsia difende la Patria dal 2017. All'inizio era una volontaria, responsabile delle comunicazioni con i volontari ad Avdiivka, e in seguito entrò in marina.
Fino a poco tempo, ha combattuto per l'Ucraina spalla a spalla con suo marito Alexander. Ma, sfortunatamente, è morto durante il bombardamento del campo di addestramento di Yavorovsky.
Olga Chumak è un lanciagranate. Ha abbastanza forza e resistenza per far fronte fisicamente a tali armi, per non arrendersi e distruggere gli invasori!

Welcome to Wednesday's daily thread on #Russia's attack on #Ukraine.

It's Day 168 of the war, but all the buzz and chat is about what happened yesterday in #Crimea. Here's the link to yesterday's thread.

We are still no nearer knowing the real reason for the devastating blow to #Russia on #Crimea

#Ukraine again denies it's anything to do with them, but no-one believes the RU version of an "accident"

To get an idea of the force of the blasts, watch the last few seconds of this:
13 people are dead after shelling in #Dnipropetrovsk region this morning. 11 more civilians are injured.

12 died when around 40 grads hit the centre of #Maryanets near Nikopol. Two schools and more than 20 high rise apartment blocks were hit.

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.

Hello, welcome to Friday and to Day 163 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

Critical days after The Kremlin's tactic of carpet bombing the front line, then throwing 1000s of cannon fodder into the "grey zone" seems to be pushing Ukraine back in #Donetsk.

All the news, all day, here⬇️
The @TheStudyofWar last night reported #Ukraine "is likely seizing the strategic initiative and forcing #Russia to reallocate forces" due to threats in #Kherson.

However their maps don't include the news about #Avdiivka and #Bakhmut which I brought you in yesterday's thread
Also last night I showed the scenes in #Nikopol - and I'll tweet a new video in the next post

UK's MoD's update highlights the sheer recklessness of #Russia firing on Nikopol from a nuclear power plant in #Enerhodar, storing weapons there knowing #Ukraine can't risk firing there

Day 162 of #Russia's war with a country which has never invaded, or fired upon, another country once.

#Ukraine continues its proud defence, but masses of new cannon fodder are arriving on the fronts to help #Russia pressure new fronts.

All the news, all day in one 🧵, read on!
First to the murder of #Ukraine's #Azovstal defenders in the missile strike on the #Olenivka prison.

The @ICRC put out a statement saying they could not guarantee the safety of the Ukrainians despite negotiating their release from #Mariupol'…
The Red Cross statement says they had no access to prisoners in #Olenivka before the strike. This contradicts Russian propaganda channels which claimed they visited 4 days before.

US Intel concurs with my assessment Russia is delaying UN/ICRC visits to plant evidence.

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.

More pro-Kremlin propaganda & war denialism. This accnt claims #Mariupol is one of the safest cities in Russian occupied Ukraine & is having summer concerts in the park. BS Kremlin #disinfo. Not clear what video they pilfered this from but its NOT current or correctly attributed
As @SarahAshtonLV points out its impossible to believe given the total devastation in #Mariupol & given at the very beginning of the clip you see #Ukraine colors / flag on the stage. No way this would occur in Russian occupied #Mariupol #StandWithUkraine
Here is another pro-Kremlin troll account pushing the same BS propaganda #disinfo a few days prior. Guessing its all over Telegram as well. #StandWithUkraine

Day 155 of #Russia's despicable war on #Ukraine

It's causing problems for everyone around the world, all because of one man. But giving in, or ceding ground is like giving painkillers to someone with a curable disease. Moderate relief now but much worse pain later.

Here's the🧵
Britain's MOD is in positive mood today and so will all #Ukraine followers reading this.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Mykolaiv woke up to more explosions in the early hours today. It's a regular barrage of the city and region.

I am guessing it's to try to prevent #Ukraine battalions leaving to join in the impending assault to liberate #Kherson.

Day 153 of #Russia's war of choice.

#Odesa, #Kharkiv & #Mykolaiv among 🇺🇦 cities hit again overnight but not always with missiles designed for the job. The Kremlin orders more weapons out of "deep storage" and prepares for a #Ukraine counter attack in the south

Here's the🧵
First to those weapons on the move in #Russia.
It started with this video capturing what's believed to be
2S7 Pion heavy artillery being transported west.

They are Soviet machines, at the time state of the art high powered guns with a range of almost 50km,

Some excellent sleuthing on the internet found the source - a diminishing supply of stock.

Google Earth images show there were 170 of the Pions stored at this location in #Russia early April, down to 135 at the start of June; last week only 110 remaining.

We have entered the sixth month of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

Welcome again to the daily thread.

Day 152 and the senseless killing continues, all because of one little man.

All the main news and analysis updated throughout the day!

At times updates today may be delayed as I'm on the move, but I will catch up with everything in bursts of activity when I have internet and a seat!

DMs open for tip offs. I try to answer all questions @ me too.
First the #Ukraine estimate of #Russia's losses.

Whether or not the figures are accurate (they're likely inflated at least a little), there are a lot of RU soldiers being killed the last few days.

Let's get Day 147 underway.
Almost 5 months since #PutinsWar on #Ukraine began and I've been documenting everything since I was in #Kyiv just before the first bombs dropped.

If you like the free, handy daily threads and can afford to buy me a coffee, please see my profile page.
Impossible to verify, but #Ukraine's 58th Motorise Infantry Brigade says it wiped out an entire group of #Russia's Wagner military contractors.

The General Staff would only say this happened "on the front line" and published photos of the badges and some Russian bodies:
Each evening almost a constant stream of missiles from #Russia heading in to #Ukraine.

These were sent to #Belgorod to #Kharkiv region.

Remember USA will supply more weapons, yet🇺🇦 cannot use them to hit the rocket launchers in Russia. Why?

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."

Welcome to Day 143 of #PutinsWar.
This daily thread aims to tell you everything you need to know about developments of #Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine and the heroic defence to keep 🇺🇦 free.

DMs open for tip offs.. working as fast as I can!

Updates may be a little slower/less frequent today as I am driving to London for UK premiére of #Ukraine film #SlovoHouse in Leicester Sq

About artists suppressed under Stalin, it's very relevant now & headlines the closing gala at the @iwilltell festival
Tomorrow will be 8 years to the day since #Russia blasted passenger jet #MH17 out of the sky. 300 innocents died from numerous countries inc UK, but mainly Dutch; families going on holiday

The Kremlin came up with repeated versions of "what happened" each new story proving..

Попри всю готовність стояти до кінця, нас поглинула б чорна ця орда.
І кінець міг настати не лише для нашого покоління, а для всієї України, а можливо, і всього світу.
Тому вільний світ почув нас. Ми не просили наших друзів вмирати поруч з нами.
4/6 🇺🇦
Ми просили тільки допомогти нам зробити так, щоб вмерли загарбники.
Було непросто, адже росія робила все можливе, щоб цього не допустити. Брехала, залякувала, сіяла смуту та розбрат. Але ворогу не вдалося, ми впорались.
5/6 🇺🇦
І поки сотні тисяч українських воїнів тримали фронт, десятки тисяч їхніх братів наполегливо опановували новітні зразки західної зброї. А коли цей процес став невідворотнім, питання остаточної поразки росії стало лише питанням часу ☠️

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

1/3 «Погоду» на фронті роблять ні Himars, Bayraktar, Caesar чи Stinger. Її робить звичайний український піхотинець з автоматом. Це він вгризся в землю і тримає нищівні артобстріли і хвилі ворожих штурмів.
2/3 Там перепхані вирвами поля, виношені під коріння посадки, знищені під фундамент хати. Там всіяні тілами загарбників підступи і нестерпний трупний сморід.
Але 🇺🇦 воїн тут стоїть. Впертий, втомлений з закопченими обличчям. Щоб там мали час домовитися, навчитися, доїхати.
3/3 Не було б його, не було б і ніяких ні Himars, ні PzH 2000, нічого. Не було б вже України. Просто будьласка, пам’ятайте про це. І вірте в українського воїна, вірте в #ЗСУ 💙💛

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 🤣🤣

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

This is my 129th daily thread on #PutinsWar

The killing continues: #Ukraine still under real pressure in the eastern #Donbas region, but signs that the US supplied weapons in particular are beginning to cause real problems for #Russia.

All the news, all day, right here⬇️
#Mykolaiv came under heavy attack in the early hours this morning. We are still awaiting full details.

At least 8 missiles were launched by #Russia's army. Some landed in #Nikolaev according to the mayor
Although it's Day 129 of this thread and the full invasion, please remember this war started over 8 years ago.
In two weeks it will be the 8th anniversary of the MH17 massacre when 300 were murdered by #Russia. Had we acted decisively then, we wouldn't need to spend billions now.
