Two of the injured in #Kyiv have been hospitalised.

Hello again and thanks for reading, this is Thursday's #RussiaUkraineWar thread.

It's Day 435 since #Russia launched its full invasion.

I am still recovering from yesterday - what a day. Relive it here:
Some breaking news, we are learning about repeated explosions in #Zaporizhzhia this morning.

S-300 anti aircraft missiles again being used by #Russia to attack civilians, but monitoring groups say one exploded just after launch, before it crossed the frontline.

It's noisy.
The weather has improved in #Ukraine. But though the ground may be drying out a little on the frontline, conditions are still incredibly tough.

Here's the only viable route for #Ukraine to/from #Khromove (then beyond to #ChasivYar)

#Ukraine: Ukrainian fighters posted on Instagram a very notable photo of the use of the #Israeli🇮🇱 120mm M971 Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munition (DPICM) cargo mortar bomb, which contains 24 M85/M87 dual purpose AT/AP submunitions. #UkraineWar #Russia #USA #Ukrainian 👇👇 Image
#Ukraine: Is this the Israeli made 120mm M971 DPCIM in the photo.The answer is most likely "NO".-The M971 DPICM was originally developed and manufactured in Israel, but other countries also have a license for production.Let me explain in the next post.👇👇#USA #Russia #America ImageImageImage
#Ukraine: In June 2000, the US company Alliant Techsystems (ATK) entered into negotiations with IMI🇮🇱 for the licensed production of the M971 DPICM in the #US🇺🇸.2004 IMI concluded a license agreement with ATK for the production of DPICMs in the US. #America #Russia #Ukraina #Kiev

Hopefully will keep this realistic work ongoing till @_MrPickle is back.

russia must lose!

The only way russia could possibly win the war is if the US support is gone.
How can you do that?. Easy, amplify and depict Ukraine as a Nazi state, no matter how ridiculous that sound if its
repeated enough it might work. Watch @cryptodrftng with Olena and Olena with dugin Image
The plan is working, watch US support dropping especially among republicans (russia’s favorite demographic to
@cryptodrftng as just one part of the puzzle, would attack any non extremest, ensuring anyone on the fence would

Hello and welcome to the daily thread about #Ukraine and its defence against #Russia's illegal invasion.

This is Day 352 since last February's all out attack, but now very nearly 9 years since the original invasion. The more the west did nothing, the bolder Putin became:

It was particularly telling when a Russian protest group managed to find out #Russia, once cameras has gone, stole back fur coats they'd given to grieving relatives for their losses:
Last night there was a drone wave sent in to Ukraine territory and as I wrote at the time it could well be the precursor to another full missile attack.

That does seem to be happening now with launches detected and mass devastation and death again a possbility for the innocent

Thursday 26 January starts with millions in #Ukraine sheltering in bunkers, as waves of drones have been threatening the country and now #Kyiv is under threat

This is the daily thread with all the news, updated throughout each & every day...
So much news yesterday afternoon and evening.

Firstly the tank-coalition news then the angry reply from #Russia.

To glance through anything you may have missed, just click and scroll Wednesday's thread here:

In #Kyiv region, one Telegram channel posted this from #Boyarka, a small town about 25km south-west of downtown Kyiv.

They claim it's one of the #Iran-made attack drones being shot down. I'm not convinced by the audio alone.

Kolejna sprawa: z lekkim zaskoczeniem obserwuję pompowanie medialnego balonika pt. "Leopardy 2 na Ukrainę!"
Niektórzy komentujący uważają to za przełom a owe czołgi za niemalże wunderwaffe.
#Ukraine️ #UkraineUnderAttack #UkraineRussiaWar Image
Łącznie dostarczonych będzie od około 84 do 160 czołgów Leopard 2 różnych wersji na przestrzeni Q2-Q4.
do 160 czołgów.
To słodkie.
W 2022 roku Polska podarowała Ukrainie ponad 300 maszyn rodziny T-72 i PT-91!
Średniomiesięcznie UA traci około 40 czołgów i 90 TO/BMP. Image
Inaczej rzecz ujmując 80 lub 160 Leopardów 2 to uzupełnienie od 2 do 4 miesięcy walk na froncie. Tak żeby rozumieć o czym piszemy. Plus 31 Abramsów? Super! +1 miesiąc strat załatany.
Oczywiście Leopardy 2A5/2A6 są czołgiem lepszym od wszystkiego co mają RUS -wliczając T-90M

Today it's Day 336 of #Russia's full invasion and war on #Ukraine.

It's also a special day for many people.
Burns' Night in #Scotland
St Dwynwen's Day for lovers in #Wales
While it's also the 45th birthday of @ZelenskyyUa - mnogo lita Mr President!

Here's the daily thread
@ZelenskyyUa It should also be a very special day for #Ukraine's military leaders with confirmation coming from #Germany and the #USA that the country's top fighting tanks are finally going to be given to the country.

The news leaked out y'day. Here's Tuesday's thread
It's also been a very pleasant start to the day for me, to see two more donations to my "coffee fund" this morning.

Eric and Renée (who has been super generous), I give you my sincerest thank yous.

And thanks to everyone who writes messages of support or kind words.

Krótki raport z regionu Bachmutu.

Siły UA na północ od Sołedaru utrzymują się we wsiach Wesełe, Rozdoliwka, Mykołajiwka, Krasnopoliwka. Miejscowości te są już bardzo mocno zniszczone. Większość domów to gruzy między którymi UA zbudowało szereg umocnień. 1/ Image
Mimo to, wspomniane miejscowości, wraz z biegnącymi w tym regionie ciekami wodnymi, linią kolejową, wzgórzami po jej zachodnie i wschodniej stronie stronie są bardzo ważnym elementem blokującym postępy RUS na zachód i północ. 2/ Image
Dla UA obecnie ważne jest utrzymanie regionu wsi Wesełe (i wzgórz w tym regionie) oraz Rozdoliwka ponieważ ich upadek otworzy RUS bezpośrednią drogę na Siewiersk i Spirne od południa. Upadek Jakowliwki nie był tragedią, kiedy Sołedar był w rękach UA. Teraz jest niebezpiecznie. 3/ Image

Welcome to 2023, welcome to day 312 of the #RussiaUkraineWar.

Different year, same story as #Russia's terrorism continued right through the new year, but lucky for you my daily threads continue to document the terror and war crimes.

It's already been a terrible start to the day
So much happened in the last hour of 2022 as attacks intensify over #Kyiv. Earlier there was another massive missile attack.

If you missed anything, check out yesterday's thread right here:

#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

Proud of my country, making a special point of honouring and supporting the people of #Ukraine in the New Year fireworks and light show in #London.

Early in 2022 @BorisJohnson warned Europe could see the biggest war in Europe since 1945 and he was right.

I want to say thank you to everyone who's supported me in 2022, whether it's with words of encouragement, tip-offs, donations to my fundraiser or buying me a coffee.

I have tried to answer all comments and questions (tho some don't show up from time to time) and DMs remain open.
I didn't post much on the thread yesterday evening as it was quiet and remains so for the first 4.5 hours of Saturday in #Ukraine so far.

Day 309 of the war. #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.
Thanks for reading yet another daily thread

Thursday started with explosions for many in #Kyiv with a nationwide air alert. City leaders in the capital say it's air defence working.

Here's y'day link
With enemy aircraft moving, this alert for many regions including #Kyiv has already lasted over 2 hours.

More ships appeared in the Black Sea armed with missiles too, according to Gov of #Mykolaiv (RU: #Nikolaev) Vitaliy Kim

There has still been the regular shelling during the night in #Ukraine

Two villages near #Zaporizhzhia were hit by #Russia's artillery. Also struck of course was #Nikopol, which I don't always mention in these threads but continues to be targeted daily.

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine

First a story causing concern in #Ukraine where rumours abound that President #Zelenskyy's entourage is so worried by the popularity of the Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhny, they want to replace him.

Original report paywalled @TheEconomist…
#Bakhmut holds...

But it must be among the most scary places on Earth right now.

In Regular updates on Russian disinformation narratives targeting Ukraine, we find new #Putin's explanation for attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure. #AgainstRussianLies #InfoWatch
Seeming to forget whose missiles and tanks crossed whose border first, Russia’s state-run RIA. Novosti quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin discussing how Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly committed acts of sabotage on Russian territory. #RussiainvadedUkraine
Speaking during an award ceremony at the Kremlin on Thursday, Putin argued that "There is much noise now about our attacks on the energy infrastructure of our neighbouring country. Yes, we are doing this. But who started it?” #UkraineUnderAttack

NEW 🧵on 🇷🇺 Missile attacks:


In the recent months we have seen the 🇷🇺 signature move: MISSILE ATTACKS on major cities & infrastructure.

Most of the missiles are launched from strategic bombers (& a smaller part from ships)
➡️An important military airbase is #Engels-2:

➡️Located deep into #Russia and unreachable for any counteroffensive actions.
➡️Distances to 🇺🇦 cities range from 750 km up to 1250 km.
➡️I've drawn some examples on the map below:

➡️It was historically home to the 22nd Guards Heavy Bomber Aviation Division, but in 2009 this was reformed.
➡️Now it is the operating airbase for the 184th & 121st Guards Heavy Bomber Aviation Regiment

Sześć ogólnych i możliwych kierunków potencjalnej ofensywy UA w grudniu/początek stycznia, jeśli tylko pozwoli na to pogoda. W chwili obecnej działania utrudnia błoto, aczkolwiek wg różnych prognoz, w grudniu może się to zmienić, a w styczniu na pewno będą silne mrozy.1/
Każdy kolor to możliwy scenariusz, aczkolwiek jak wiadomo, Kijów może nas zaskoczyć czymś innym. Również dobrze, może dojść do szeregu małych, lokalnych ataków i skierowania w region, gdzie uda się osiągnąć przełamanie części odwodów posiadanych odwodów aby je powiększyć. 2/
Kolor czerwony. Atak na Melitopol i pomocnicze uderzenie na obszar po zachodniej stronie kanału krymskiego + próba zdobycia Nowej Kachowki. Jeśli UA się na to zdecydują, to przeprowadzą atak bardzo dużymi siłami (co najmniej 15 brygad w ataku głównym i 5 w pomocniczym). 3/

1/3 Every so often members of the international community suggest that it’s #Ukraine's duty to surrender part of its territory to russia. “To avoid further death and suffering”, the rhetoric goes.
Ukraine isn’t just territory. Ukraine is its people.

Good morning, with all the dour news from partisanship to whatever is going on with Twitter I thought I would start my daily essay with some comedy. hat tip to @wartranslated
That truck is the ultimate catfish for a mechanic. From 50 feet away you might think its repairable... up close its total scrap. Imagine being a flesh and blood creature when that rain of metal comes down? Yeah that parts not funny. What will drill neat little holes in steel
will pink mist anyone unlucky enough to be caught in it. No wonder the Russian's have decided running is better than driving. More and more reports coming in that the latest tranche of Russian Lend Lease to Ukraine will not disappoint. Though to be honest I don't know if that is
