Welcome to Thursday's daily thread on #Russia's war.
It's Day 211 of non stop shelling and killing.

#Ukraine needs your help, if you can spare anything, please consider donating to our Fundraiser as we're falling behind the target…
Wednesday was remarkable.

From pathetic Putin's ramblings/partial mobilisation, to the street protests in #Russia, to the prisoner swap deal which saw all 5 Britons released, ending with Zelenskyy's focused and powerful, history-making speech at the #UN

Last night there were big queues at #Russia's southern border with #Georgia.

Presumably men trying to flee before they receive the dreaded call-up to fight in #Ukraine.

Yesterday there were reportedly long queues at the Finnish border and flight tickets selling out.

Not so keen on the war now, it seems, with ordinary 🇷🇺 in line to lose their lives…
Leaving in DROVES.

They were not willing to open their mouths to speak out against 🇷🇺 Genocide and other #warcrimes in 🇺🇦.

But now the prospect of THEIR lives on the line is a different matter.

And it will be 🇷🇺 ‘s young that will be leaving.

The ones 🇷🇺 needs most.

25 years old Finnish machine gunner Joni Björkbacka in #Ukraine fighting against #Russia`ns.

#Turpo #Säkpol #Finland Image
Joni have studied information & communication technologies & have his own company. He has been also elected as city councilor to #Rovaniemi (16th largest city in Finland) in 2021. His party was @persut. City is best known about #Santapark & #Santaclaus

#Turpo #Säkpol Image
@persut "Reasons for my departure were humanitarian. Killing of civilians & bystander casualties angered me, I wanted to go to support of weaker side fighting against an enemy that seemed superior in size. I wanted to put the training I received in Finnish army into practice." Image

Well as my last attempt⤵️to #StopTheWar in #Ukraine failed to get any traction I thought my 2nd attempt should start with a bang or in the words of #DrStrangelove"How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb"
2/n It seems I am not scary enough to scare sense into some participants of the current war, I thought trying to use a selection of #GNUTerryPratchett words from #Discworld #Jingo & #Hogfather along with some horrors of war concepts might persuade #WarCriminals in the conflict
3/n that a better path might be available to them and others if the war ended quickly but as another Author @Kurt_Vonnegut said of horrors in another War #SoItGoes🤷‍♂️
I started with the words
From the #WarGames film

Massengräber bei Izyum gefunden. Es werden mindestens 440 Leichen vermutet. Sowohl ukrainische Soldaten wie Zivilisten. #WarCrimes ImageImageImageImage
Hinweis: Erste Analysen zeigen, dass die Toten überwiegend in Folge von Kriegshandlungen bei der Eroberung von Izyum ums Leben kamen. Es handelt sich wohl nicht um Vertuschung von Kriegsverbrechen.

Das ist angesichts der Zahlen dennoch nicht beruhigend.
Jetzt also doch? Widersprüchliche Informationen erreichen uns aus Izyum.

Laut Forensikern der ukrainischen Nationalpolizei wurden Leichen exhumiert, deren Hände gefesselt sind. Manche tragen sogar einen abgeschnittenen Strick um den Hals. Mein Gott!

This is Thursday's thread with news, views, analysis on #Russia's unprovoked war in #Ukraine, updated throughout the day.

Day 204 starts with a recap of the main story which broke very late last night:
🇺🇦President Zelenskyy is ok despite a car crash

If you missed that, or just want a recap of Wednesday's news from #Ukraine and beyond, then just click here and scroll at your leisure!

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

The other big story was #Russia's deliberate bombing of a dam, trying to flood #Ukraine's 7th biggest city, #KrivyiRih (RU: #KrivoyRog)

It's the home town of President @ZelenskyyUa
Late in the evening authorities evacuated houses of those living closest to the river.

🧵A few things to keep in mind during the euphoria of overwhelmingly good news in Ukraine. #Perspectives
1: #UAF warriors & civilian support staff are undertaking enormous risk to push this offensive through. I am reminded of the 1448 US soldiers killed on their last day in Vietnam. War is cruel. Many more lives will be ended or changed forever before there is 🇺🇦 victory and peace.
2: This victory is not unexpected. Anyone paying close attention would surmise that 🇷🇺 forces & proxies would eventually collapse. I am reminded of @TrentTelenko @CraigM_Regan @KofmanMichael & others whose analysis predicted 🇷🇺 culmination & collapse by end of summer.

You've found the start of daily thread number 192 covering #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine

Last night some stories on the thread included the tale of a kindergarten head sacked in Russia and another chapter in #RussiaOnFire. Catch what you missed:


#Kharkiv came under heavy fire again this morning.

It happens almost every night. This time a volley of missiles being fired was caught on drone footage. #Russia fired from Belgorod

These are S-300s not designed for this purpose, lacking accuracy


Mayor of #Kharkiv Terekhov says air defences took down some missiles. But there was a hit by a school in the Novobavarsky district.

Air raid warning was active, no casualties reported.

Sunday 28 August, it's Day 186 of #Russia's full scale invasion.

The day begins with the usual sounds of shelling and terror by the Terrorist State upon #Ukraine. Updates to follow..

Here's the link to the start of yesterday's thread

#Zaporizhzhia once again a focal point for #Russia's invaders.

There are indeed reports of firing in both directions, across the frontline which separates free and occupied ZP.

Reliable reports of explosions in occupied areas, while #Ukraine says its' air defence is working:
In #Kharkiv there are conflicting reports.
Some channels say air defences working well here too.
However others posting on social media about "arrivals" in the area, and the audio on this video clip is convincing

⚡️☢️AFU commits #Warcrimes if firing on #ZaporozhyeNPP⚡️ Special; PLS RT:
According to the ICRC's IHL (International Humanitarian Law) database, #Russia is allowed to set up defences to protect the #NPP, but it is not allowed to attack from there.

If #Ukraine shells the #Zaporozhye #NPP because of the defences, it is a violation of IHL and a war crime.

Germany’s Military Manual (1992) states:
“Military objectives shall not be located in the vicinity of works and installations containing dangerous forces unless it is necessary for the defence of these works.”

For the record, & to respond to those who have genuine questions/concerns, I’ll try to address some of them in this thread: I am the principal researcher & author of these @amnesty’s report on #Russia’s #WarCrimes in #Ukraine :…
I am not THE author, but one of 3 researchers and several other colleagues who worked on @amnesty’s press release of 4 August. I was not part of the team who liaised with Amnesty Ukraine about the manner & timing of the publication of this press release, so have no info on this.
Re this CBS documentary… : That interview was recorded on 2 May. The point I made (18.45) is that any state providing weapons to other states should have robust mechanisms in place to ensure traceability, as weapons can last longer than wars & governments.

My thoughts on the @amnesty report on #Ukraine. These are my personal thoughts and not affiliated with any of the orgs I work for. They got the law wrong. Protocol 1 states militaries shall to the maximum extent feasible AVOID locating military objects near populated areas 1/
Ukraine can place forces in areas they are defending - especially in #urbanwarfare. There is no requirement to stand shoulder to shoulder in a field - this isn’t the 19th century. Ukraine still has an OBLIGATION to protect civilians - but they are taking steps to do so like 2/
helping civilians relocate. The info environment is complex but when I train Ukrainian #WarCrimes teams I always tell them they must investigate alleged violations of ALL parties to the conflict. 3/

1/5 According to #Amnesty the #Zelensky regime in #Ukraine is committing #warcrimes. Civilians are used as shields. Schools, universities and hospitals are used as military bases. Attacks are launched from highly populated areas. #ZelenskyWarCriminal…
2/5 Since 2014, Ukrainian forces committed genocide against ethnic Russians, which make up the majority of the Donbas population. Ethnic Russians are not considered humans by state funded ultra-right wing groups training children. #ZelenskyWarCriminal

Any OSINTs with the ability to access current #satellite imagery want to document evidence of #Russia's efforts to commit #genocide in #Ukraine?

No need for highest resolution of imagery, just need to know where to look. 😉


@Maxar @GeoConfirmed @WarintheFuture @GeeDawg55975157 @CovertShores @OSINT88 @oleksiireznikov @Gerashchenko_en I have concealed & not publicized CRITICAL infrastructure inside Ukraine since early March, given it IS essential to LIFE in UA, as I did not want to put any Ukrainians at risk.

Russia's "Scorched Earth" strategy from was evident since Feb 24, but I still purposely concealed.
But reality is, with how social media works, keeping this Open Source Intelligence concealed for the best interests of Ukrainians who are dependent on it, is thrown out the window with EVERY publication of EVERY explosion or fireball that EVER happens & reaches Telegram.

(1/10) CRIME DE GUERRE : à #Yelenovka, un bâtiment habritant des prisonniers Ukrainiens a été touché par missile. 53 morts.
#Ukraine #Russie #WarCrimes #WarCrime
(2/10) L'info a été très vite relayée par les comptes de propagande pro-russes. Elle viendrait directement du "Ministre de l'INFORMATION" Daniil #Bezsonov (DPR).
Selon lui, un missile ukrainien de type #HIMAR a réduit en cendre le complexe. 53 prisonniers décédés, 0 garde.
(3/10) Avec une naïveté incroyable, la propagande russe s'est mobilisée comme jamais. Il faut dire qu'ils n'avaient pas grand chose à se mettre sous la dent après plus d'un mois sans progrès sur le terrain.
Avec des arguments falacieux, ils accusent l'#Ukraine.

Today, russian nazis again shelled Mykolaiv and killed civilians.
This is another terrorist attack committed by russians.

Ukraine needs heavy weapons for defense. Give us ATACMS missiles and more HIMARS to stop these bastards.

"The charging document cited a speech that Kara-Murza... had given weeks earlier...

His remarks accused Russian forces of dropping cluster bombs on residential areas in Ukraine & staging airstrikes on maternity wards, hospitals & schools."

"The atrocities Kara-Murza described have been verified ...

But Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin couldn’t bear the spectacle of a Russian citizen airing these uncomfortable facts — so it locked him up for telling the truth."

Kara-Murza "has continued to campaign for human rights & liberal democracy...

Meanwhile, many politicians in the West have abandoned these values, whether by appeasing dictators such as Putin or by eroding democratic principles in their own societies."…

For every #SriLankan who saw protestors at #GGG being assaulted by the #military & said "if they are doing this in #Colombo, can you imagine what happened to #Tamils in the #North & #East?" ENOUGH! There is no need to imagine, we know! 1/8

There are 100's of people who died getting that information of #WarCrimes out of the #WarZone. Too many #journalists & #activists were killed, attacked, jailed, #tortured & exiled trying to disseminate that information, because you chose not to believe. 3/8

Hey, @Pendolino70S I saw your worry, so lets make it the message of the day. So, I woke up to your tag on this tweet about GOP support for Ukraine post mid-terms. I think the fear is mostly over-rated and here is why
1. Defense spending is almost as widely distributed as atmospheric oxygen molecules. Just about every member of both houses of congress has real bring home the bacon moments from the defense industry. This makes funding politically lucrative and mostly bipartisan.
2. Americans love an underdog and a democratic Ukraine fending off a rabid Russian bear is ticks all the right boxes to stir American passions.

3. long term incumbency means a lot of members of Congress get access to information that is more frank and more honest than what the
