#Russia blown up the Nova #Kakhovka dam in #Ukraine.

A reminder for some Western politicians: Russian regime just committed an ecological disaster and another major war crime. Russian fascism must be defeated and destroyed. It's perverted, sick and disgusting.

🧵 ...
On operational and other consequences:
- There will be no significant impact on UKR counter-offensive. #Ukraine may briefly pause to reassess the situation.
- The water level will increase, washing a lot of small settlements. #Kherson city is mostly on a higher land, though.

- RU is expecting to disrupt the #Ukraine's counter-offensive. RU miscalculated and messed up. Part of #Crimea will be left without water supply.
- The water levels will the decrease and stabilize. Here is a good article modelling the worst case.…

🇫🇷 "Il est remarquable d'avoir réussi à fabriquer un #Rafale entièrement en France, à un prix qui est inférieur à celui d'un #F35 aujourd'hui."

Retour sur l'audition - du 24 mai - d'Eric Trappier (PDG @Dassault_OnAir) devant la commission sénatoriale de la #défense.

THREAD ⬇️ Image
🇺🇸🇺🇦 "J'entends souvent dire que les industriels de l'armement français tirent profit de la guerre en Ukraine. En ce qui me concerne, #Dassault n'en tire aucun profit. Seuls les États-Unis d'Amérique le font." #EricTrappier
🇵🇱🇺🇸 "Je ne crois pas que la #Pologne ait appelé à acheter des avions européens ; même des avions coréens sont évoqués. Ces propos que l'on entend à la radio ou à la télé sont faux. En réalité, ils viennent surtout de certaines organisations non-gouvernementales (ONG)." #Dassault

#Wagner Group financier Yevgeny #Prigozhin is continuing efforts to exacerbate the divide between the #WagnerGroup and the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD). 🧵⬇️
2/ #Prigozhin’s press service published a video on June 4 showing a #Wagner fighter interrogating a Russian soldier who identified himself as Lieutenant Colonel Roman Venevitin of the 72nd Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade (3rd Army Corps).
3/ Venevitin admitted on camera that he ordered his unit to fire on a #Wagner vehicle while intoxicated due to his own “personal animosity” towards Wagner and appeared to have sustained facial injuries during the time of his capture by Wagner.

#BREAKING: The Nova Kakhovka Dam has been destroyed. The consequences of this are going to be drastic and grave. "It would be impossible to supply water to Crimea via the North Crimea Canal" - Head of Nova Kakhovka district. #ukraine #russia #novakakhovka #dam #crimea
A map below shows potential flooding consequences down stream of the dam. 80 towns, villages and cities are in danger of being under water in the coming hours. It is unclear who struck the dam at this time. This also drastically reduces water supply to Crimea. #russia #UkraineWar Image
‼️☢️Article of Zelensky talking about Russia staging a "false flag" on the Nova Kakhovka dam. He states that it could endanger the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant by draining the reservoir it uses to cool. This is a global crisis unfolding. #ukrainewar… Image

#Ukraine Le 20 mai, Prigojine annonçait que la ville de Bakhmut était enfin entièrement tombée aux mains des Russes et de ses mercenaires.
À midi.
Je vous propose un voyage en image dans cette ville depuis sa chute.
Accrochez-vous, les images sont impressionnantes.

ISW is committed to helping policymakers and the public understand what is occurring in #Ukraine without reporting details that would in any way compromise Ukraine’s ability to liberate its occupied lands.

2/ We will remain conservative in mapping and assessing Ukrainian advances given that control of terrain may rapidly change during mechanized operations.
3/ ISW will not compromise Ukrainian operational security or report on anything the Russians don’t already know based on our extensive and detailed study of Russian publicly available sources.

Sunday's thread was a bit crazy and very long!

#Russia army was in the novel position of having prisoners of war taken by three different factions!

Mass brawls in Russia & a very sad story about dolphins.

Yep all those stories and more. Catch up here⬇️
#Russia's losses a little more stable today but troop deaths pass 210,000.

Also, it's not clear if these estimates from #Ukraine include Kremlin losses to Russian rebel units and #Wagner 😜🤣 Image

3/ Russian sources also claimed that Ukrainian forces struck additional areas in #Zaporizhia Oblast on June 4: near #Melitopol, northeast of Melitopol near Chernihivka, and near the frontline near Verbove and Polohy.

The dissonant Russian responses to and reporting about the limited raid in #Belgorod Oblast continue to suggest that the Russian leadership has not yet decided how to react to these limited cross-border raids into #Russia.
2/ The contradictory reporting from official Russian sources about the situation in #Belgorod Oblast and Gladkov’s apparent personal decision to respond to the RDK and LSR suggests that the MoD and Gladkov are not coordinating their responses to the raids.
3/ ISW has previously reported that Russian officials have disproportionately responded to the limited raids into #Russia to assuage growing Russian anxiety about the war in #Ukraine while supporting ongoing info operations that aim to present the war as existential to Russia.

Krótki komentarz na temat tego, co tak właściwie się dzieje w maju na terenie Ukrainy i gdzie ta ofensywa? Mówiąc inaczej, na wszystko przyjdzie czas. 1/
Na wstępie chciałbym zaznaczyć, że przewidywany w marcu termin rozpoczęcia głównej ukraińskiej ofensywy minął. Sądziłem, że połowa maja, maksymalnie druga połowa maja 2023 r. będzie stała znała pod znakiem głównego uderzenia sił UA. 2/
Na razie tak się nie stało. Mój błąd, aczkolwiek z drugiej strony, było to trochę wróżenie z fusów połączone z analizą wielu różnych, niepołączonych ze sobą informacji i sygnałów. 3/

⚠️ je vais conclure pour ceux qui m'ont allumé toute la soirée suite à l'information de sources russes que j'ai publiée. Ceux-là même qui n'ont pas été capables de se poser les bonnes interrogations et de se remettre en question.

À qui auraient pu profiter ces informations ?
Aux Russes ? non puisque ce sont eux qui ont repéré les unités ukrainiennes et qui ont publié l'information sur de multiples canaux Telegram et ce dès 12h30

2/ Preliminary actions have been taking place for months. Since late 2022, Ukrainian planners, diplomats and strategic leaders have been reviewing different plans, working with allies and wargaming options for their 2023 offensives against the Russians.
3/ Ukrainian training institutions have been preparing soldiers and leaders, which has been supplemented by tactical and technical training being undertaken in NATO countries. Brigades and battalions have been conducting collective training and rehearsals. Image

Day 466 of the daily thread covering the #UkraineRussianWar begins here.

All the news and analysis, throughout the day and night - looks like little sleep again tonight as it's believed #Russia has fired cruise missiles, currently an hour away from hitting #Ukraine.

The situation is still developing. We hope the missile launch was a fake, or dummy warheads to "draw out" #Ukraine's air defence.

For all yesterday's news, including the terrible attack on #Dnipro, click and scroll here:

Also hearing now that cruise-missile laden ships are in the launch zone in the Black Sea. This is not uncommon, but #Russia's current tactic of a mixed missile attack increases the likelihood of ships being involved.

Estimated time of arrival of rockets: 03:10 Kyiv time.

Update #Ukraine
Im Überblick:
- neue RVC-Raids auf russisches Territorium, Kämpfe an zahlreichen Grenzabschnitten gemeldet;
- eine Drohnenwelle auf Moskau, fast tägliche Raketenangriffe in Kiew;
- Selenski und Graham kündigen baldigen Beginn der Gegenoffensive an.
(1/25) Image
In den letzten Tagen wurden neue Gefechte in russischen Grenzregionen gemeldet.
Fast täglich soll es ukrainische Durchbruchsversuche und Raids über die Grenze geben, insbesondere in der Region Belgorod.
Die schwersten Kämpfe wurden nahe der Ortschaft Schebekino gemeldet.
(2/25) ImageImageImage
Die Raids entlang und über die Grenze werden mit vergleichsweise kleinen Verbänden ausgeführt, aber mit schwerer Technik und massiver Unterstützung durch Artillerie und Luftwaffe.
Auf der anderen Seite setzen russische Truppen schwere TOS-Raketenwerfersysteme ein.

#GuerreEnUkraine D+465 (03/06) PdS2 - Tous Théâtres hors #Donbass & Arrière-scène

Nous assistons à un événement historique.

La fiction est devenue réalité : le front russe est ouvert, pour la première fois depuis 1945 !👇 Image

Mise en abîme,
Machine à remonter le temps,
Si vous avez perdu le fil, reprenez-le avec le N°CDLXIV-II de #GuerreEnUkraine👇


1/Front X, Hyp. Z,

(i) ouverture du front 🇷🇺 !

Il n’est plus possible d’évoquer des raids transfrontaliers car leur fréquence et les arrivées de tirs d'artillerie (👇#MaslovaPristan) ont créé une zone grise, non contrôlée par les belligérants

Un article pour mieux comprendre les événements qui s’accélèrent, alors que la contre-offensive à venir de l’#Ukraine est désormais prête.…
Mais s’il ne faut pas confondre les préliminaires avec l’action principale, la phase de préparation de l’#offensive Ukr connaît désormais une nette accélération…

🧵A few thoughts as I head back to the Oslo airport after the @Equinor-@nupinytt political risk forum on long-term consequences of the war in #Ukraine. First, I am even more convinced that this is a system-transforming war. Countries close to Russia get it (Norway included).1/10
Second, regardless of whether the war in #Ukraine ends soon or lasts for years, we are only in an early stage of this systemic transformation that will gain speed as de-globalization accelerates. The process will test the relative strength and expose weaknesses of states. 2/10
Beyond the traditional indicators of economic and military power, weakness in several areas will play an outsize role, as states mobilize and prepare for intense confrontation, possibly war. One key area will be the overall societal cohesion and resilience of countries. 3/10

1. Today Russian insurgents attacked from NE of #Kharkiv and engaged and destroyed Russian amor that was lured into an engagement with infantry supported by tanks of the #RussianVolunteerCorps. Image
2. The reports conflict but it appears the two tanks in support of mounted infantry entered Russia west of where the insurgent forces attacked on Thursday when the insurgents attacked Russian FSB forces at a border control point south of #Shebikino.
3. Thursday Russia moved in and insurgents withdrew back into Ukraine but successfully fixed the Russian mechanized forces for today's attack. With the Russian mechanized forces near of #Shebekino, rather than attack the border control point again, the insurgents Image

Good morning, welcome to Daily Thread number 465 covering #Ukraine's heroic defence against #Russia's illegal aggression.

I've been here from (before) the start of war, reporting on (sometimes from) a country I've loved, worked + lectured in many, many times.
Overnight was quiet
Before we get stuck in to today's news, a gentle reminder these threads are basically an unpaid full time job - actually more than that as you get days off with a job! Coffee donations welcome (link in Bio)

To catch up on Friday's news, click here
A few drones buzzed #Ukraine yesterday evening but air raids did not last long and no damage was reported.

The drone/cruise missile numbers on #Russia's daily losses are high as they include Friday morning's attacks.
Artillery, special equipment & fuel tanks way above average Image

Russian sources appear to be reorienting the debate about the attribution of responsibility for small-scale tactical gains in the #Bakhmut area to an ongoing offensive operation to capture the small, almost leveled settlement of #Marinka west of #Donetsk. Image
2/ Russian forces have struggled to advance in #Marinka and advanced less than 2km from 2014-controlled territory around Marinka since the start of the full-scale invasion of #Ukraine, suggesting that this entire conversation is premature.
3/ The capture of #Bakhmut, despite offering no operational advantages, did allow the #Kremlin to present a Russian victory, if only temporarily, to the Russian public.
