Ich beobachte es immer wieder, auch in meinen Kommentaren, daß man auf „DEN Angriff“ der AFU🇺🇦 wartet, „DER Angriff“ wo 200 MBTs + Infanterie die 🇷🇺 Linien durchbrechen, & man wacht morgens auf, und die AFU🇺🇦steht 40km weiter. — Das wird es meiner Meinung nach so nicht

geben. Diese Vorstellung ist dem Vorgehen der AFU🇺🇦 in #Kharkiv & #Kherson geschuldet, das sollte man im Kopf abhaken. Das Vorgehen gegen 🇷🇺Befestigungen ist in #Zaporizhia eine ganz andere AFU🇺🇦 Taktik. Das grösste Problem der RF🇷🇺 ist, daß sie die über ein Jahr befestigen

Verteidigungslinien besetzen müssen, also greift die AFU🇺🇦 entlang der gesamten #Zaporizhia und auch Süd-#Donetsk Front aktuell mit Battalions, maximal mal in Brigade Stärke an. Das Problem was dabei bei den RF🇷🇺 entsteht ist, dass sie immer nur am reagieren sind, um quasi

Vorrei dedicare 5 minuti del mio tempo a cercare di spiegare cosa può e cosa non può accadere alla centrale nucleare di #Zaporizhia.

Iniziamo immediatamente dicendo che le paure di molti amici, come @Dashamayer14, non sono assurde, ma derivano da uno stato d'animo alimentato da…… Image
@Dashamayer14 Cosa potrebbe andare storto in una centrale di questo tipo? Innanzitutto, vorrei dirvi che noi ingegneri ci preoccupiamo di molti scenari possibili, inclusi quelli dei super villain, anche quando si tratta di centrali di design russo.

1. Può verificarsi un incidente simile a…… Image
@Dashamayer14 Aggiungiamo un altro punto. In entrambi i casi a meno di una volontaria esecuzione di un atto di sabotaggio ora la centrale ha entrambi i circuiti di raffreddamento chiusi. Questo significa che nessuna perdita significativa e' in atto. Quello che vedete qui e' il bacino di……

Ukrainian attacks in western #Zaporizhia on June 8 do not represent the full extent of Ukrainian capabilities in the current #counteroffensive.
2/ #Ukraine appears to have committed only a portion of the large reserve of forces available for counteroffensive operations.
3/ It is additionally noteworthy that the Russian Southern Military District Forces deployed in this particular area are likely to be a higher quality force grouping than Russia has elsewhere in theater...

The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) responded to the Ukrainian attack in western #Zaporizhia Oblast with an uncharacteristic degree of coherency and praised Southern Military District elements for repelling the attack and regaining lost positions.
2/ The overall Russian response to the attack, both among milbloggers and the MoD, was notably coherent and relatively consistent with the available visual evidence, which may suggest that Russian forces were not surprised and reacted in a controlled and militarily sound manner.
3/ As ISW has previously assessed, the Russian information space reacts with a high degree of chaos and incoherence when taken by surprise by battlefield developments that do not allow the propaganda apparatus to develop a clear line.

Ukrainian forces conducted a limited but still significant attack in western #Zaporizhia Oblast on the night of June 7 to 8. Russian forces apparently defended against this attack in a doctrinally sound manner and had reportedly regained their initial positions as of June 8.🧵⬇️ Image
2/ Russian sources began reporting late at night on June 7 that elements of Ukrainian brigades that have recently been equipped with Western kit launched an attack southwest of Orikhiv in western #Zaporizhia Oblast.
3/ Several Russian milbloggers claimed that Ukrainian forces attacked along the Mala Tokmachka-Polohy line with the aim of breaking through the Russian defensive line between Robotyne and Verbove (both about 15km southeast of Orikhiv).

3/ Ukrainian forces have made tactical gains during limited localized counterattacks in western #Donetsk Oblast near the #Donetsk-#Zaporizhia Oblast border since June 4. Image

The Ukrainian #counteroffensive has begun.

Activity throughout #Ukraine is consistent with a variety of indicators that Ukrainian counteroffensive operations are underway across the theater.

🧵on what we’re seeing & how to evaluate this activity ⬇️…
2/ Ukrainian officials have long signaled that there will not be an announcement that the #counteroffensive has begun.
3/ The #counteroffensive won’t likely unfold as a single grand operation. It will likely consist of many undertakings at numerous locations of varying size and intensity over many weeks.

#BREAKING: Nova Kakhovka hydro-electric dam on the Dnipro River in southern Ukraine has been blown by ruzzian bastards. The scale of the ecological catastrophe is still difficult to predict, as well as the number of human victims!
An appalling act of ecocide by the russian regime. The #Kakhovka dam and the Kakhovka "Sea" are gone.
#Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant loses access to water!
Consequences of blowing up the Kakhovska Hydroelectric power plant:
Crimea will not have water for a decade.
Hundreds of thousands of peoples lives will be shattered.
Thousands may drown to death.

Here is the seventh thread 🧵 about the strategy of the #RussoUkrainianWar for the early summer. Russia took the control of #Bakhmut while Ukraine is still planning its offensive efforts. #Ukraine #Russia #Soledar #Kreminna #Svatove #Wagner #UkraineWar #Leopard2 #Vuhledar Image
1) You can find all earlier Twitter threads on war in #Ukraine and #Russia's unlawful invasion and more in this interactive map. Please remember that this map is not for showing the exact lines of contacts but to understand strategies.
2) British MoD underlined that, as planned, #Wagner is now withdrawing from the center of #Bakhmut. The defence of the town will be transferred to so-called DNR forces combined with VDV units. This shows that Wagner will not be in defensive efforts.

1. To defeat the #RussianInvasion IMO #Ukraine needs to destroy the rail and road connections from Western Russia to Eastern Ukraine. They also need to interrupt the Russian ability to arm especially artillery ammunition and tanks. The maps tell me Ukraine may be doing it.
2. I have my Google Earth Pro updated with NASA Firms fires data on a constant feed. I spotted these today. The ones near #Voronezh #Rossosh and #StaryOskol caught my eye. They are all near rail lines and the ones near Stary Oskol are in what appears to be a steel production Image
3. facility that would be a good candidate for production of the steel blanks that are needed to fabricate artillery ammunition. Here is Stary Oskol. It appears to be a factory near a mining facility. Old-timey Stalinist industry practice of the factory near the mine. Image

1. As the final Ukrainian forces withdrew from #Bakhmut towards #Ivaniske Russia continued to send forces to reinforce Bakhmut's flanks giving #Ukrainian #HIMARS crews many opportunities to attack and destroy Russian troops and equipment in transit.
2. Friday's attack on the Russian forces near #Mariupol turned out to be an underground command and control HQ for #Vuhledar and #Zaporizhia forces that resulted in the deaths of 24 Russian forces and 37 wounded. More long-range strikes on other targets in an around Image
3. #Mariupol resulted in large losses of equipment. Strike reported in #Tokmak was confirmed but awaits details. In #Donetsk HIMARS strikes destroyed as many as 10 T-90 tanks east of Mar'inka. Rapid redeployment of Russian forces has given Ukraine many targets of opportunity. Image
