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

Welcome to my 130th daily thread on #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine.

While #Luhansk looks to be lost, a fightback continues from the Ukrainians in the south of the country.

All the news right here in one thread...

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Two big news events overnight as #Ukraine hits #Russia in both 🇺🇦+🇷🇺

First the strike over the border in #Russia.
Officials in #Belgorod say 3 people died and four are injured.

A local TG channel helpfully put together a "highlights" video of the night's action!
#Ukraine has not yet admitted the attack in #Russia and no confirmation of what was it. But could well be an ammunition store.

A house in #Belgorod' also seems to have been targeted but I cannot verify this video.

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.

When will #Ukraine fall and what will trigger it?
Some thoughts about strategy:
Many people often discussing why Ukraine is holding on some undefendable places in #Donbass and by doing this, sacrificing a huge quantity of people and material.
The best current example is
the battle for #Severodonestk and #Lyssytschansk.
Well, of course I do not have inside information, but here are my assumptions.
The #Donbass (and some neighboring oblasts as well) is the industrial center of #Ukraine. From my point of view all Western, and Ukrainian
intelligence and government institutions know very well, that #Ukraine will fall to #Russia. Therefore the question arose how to make it sustainably as painful as possible for the Russians, and thereby for Ukrainians, which will fall back into the Russian sphere.

Day 121 📌 Today marks exactly four months since the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Four months of struggle by the people of Ukraine. Four months of unprecedented solidarity. Read more about the current situation in Ukraine in the update ⬇️…
EU government leaders holding a 2-day summit in Brussels approved a recommendation from the @EU_Commission to grant candidate status to Ukraine & Moldova 😍 The landmark decision immediately delivered a tremendous morale boost in both countries and was cheered widely there.
Ukrainians took to the streets twice, in 2004 & 2014, to force the government to root out corruption & come closer to the EU. 8 years ago, 🇺🇦 calling for closer relations with the EU during the Revolution of Dignity were shot & killed by police from the pro-Moscow administration

Day 120 📌 ‘It is the only country where people got shot because they wrapped themselves in a European flag. 🇺🇦 has gone through hell and high water for one simple reason: and that’s their desire to join the EU,’ – @vonderleyen said. More in our brief ⬇️…
@vonderleyen EU leaders will decide today whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, following a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday 🙏 Ukraine’s president, @ZelenskyyUa, said he had spoken to 11 EU leaders on Wednesday about Ukraine’s candidacy.
@vonderleyen After the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the #Czech government decided to suspend the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation and later to Belarus, except for humanitarian causes, till March 2023 🤷‍♀️

L’#Ucraina esisterà ancora alla fine del conflitto?

La narrazione occidentale è sempre più lontana dalla realtà sul terreno.

Il mio nuovo articolo per #IntelligenceForThePeople 🧵
Abbiamo già visto come le narrazioni del conflitto propagandate da #Russia e Occidente divergano radicalmente:…

Tuttavia, nelle ultime settimane la versione occidentale appare sempre più distante dalla realtà sul terreno.
Lo stesso Zelensky ha ammesso di recente che circa il 20% del territorio ucraino è ormai sotto il controllo russo.
Le truppe di Kiev hanno quasi completamente perso la cittadina di #Severodonetsk e la provincia di #Luhansk.

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- RUS/LDVR-Truppen überqueren angeblich den Seversky Donets und rücken auf #Slavyansk vor;
- Moskau schickt neue Militärkolonnen nach #Zaporizhzhia ;
- 7. Sanktionspaket in Vorbereitung, Streit um ihre Wirkungsweise geht weiter.
Thread 👇
Russischen Truppen ist es nach LDVR-Angaben gelungen, den wichtigen Fluss Seversky Donets nördlich von Slavjansk zu überqueren.
Ukr.Seite bestätigte dies nicht, sprach aber davon, dass die Gegenseite "versucht, ihre taktischen Positionen in Richtung Slavjansk" zu verbessern.
Aus einer Karte, die #Donetsk hierzu veröffentlichte, geht hervor, dass der Vorstoß nicht über die Hauptstraße östlich von #Slavjansk erfolgte, sondern praktisch über das Waldmassiv weiter im Norden.
Inwiefern das stimmt, lässt sich im Moment nicht genau bestätigen...

Update #Ukraine
Im Überblick:
- #Swjatohirsk offensichtlich gefallen; mehrere "Kleinkessel" drohen in dem Gebiet;
- russischer General bei Popasnaya getötet;
- Kämpfe und "Nebel des Krieges" in #Severodonetsk ;
- 5 Provinzen stehen im besonderen russischen Fokus.
Thread 👇
Die wichtige Stadt Swjatohirsk nördlich von #Slawjansk ist anscheinend von russischen Truppen eingenommen worden.
Moskau meldete die Einnahme der Stadt sowie der "umliegenden" Territorien.
Aufnahmen des eingenommenen Swjatohirsk-Klosters südlich der Stadt wurden verbreitet
Sollten die Meldungen stimmen, würde dies dreierlei bedeuten.
Erstens, russ. Truppen machen damit wichtigen Schritt für ein Vorrücken auf die strategisch wichtige Stadt Slavjansk aus der nördlichen Richtung.
Im Weg liegt im Moment aber noch Bohorodychne.

#Zelenskyy visited east today, #Zaporizhzhia, #Soledar and... pretty besieged #Lysychansk (just across #Severodonestk) O_O
He's just made some bad mistakes giving out Ukrainian citizenship to enemies for Ukraine and Europe, but still, visiting frontlines, besieged areas, at risk of encirclement... is idk important, reckless, badass, stupid. Like in the first days of war, it's kinda scary
Ofc, like I said even in the first days of war, when no one believed in us except us, capturing or killing president won't stop or hinder our resistance, we're not f#cking russia, but Zelensky's important in communication w/ world, our friends. And EU will consider him an enemy..

The road to freedom: how seven people were breaking out of #Russia-occupied #Berdyansk for three days in an old ‘Lada Devyatka’ car.

Aliona Semko recounts the story 🧵

"Where are you going? At least they don't shoot in here," I kept hearing from people around.

Like me, they felt uncomfortable under #RussianOccupation but fear of the unknown paralysed their desire to live free. Fear & uncertainty cost them freedom.


Before #UkraineRussiaWar, a 230-kilometre distance from Berdyansk, a port city west of #Mariupol, to #Zaporizhia in the Southeast of Ukraine could be easily done in 3 hours by minibus.

In May, this route took people fleeing Berdyansk three days.

1/ Ukrainian TVD, Day 89-97. Intense combat has continued in the Donbas over the past 9 days. Russian forces continue to expand on their breakthrough around Popasna & have captured large parts of Severodonetsk. Ukraine counterattacks in Kherson. #UkraineWar #UkraineRussianWar
2/ Weather Outlook. Forecast for the next ten-days will see periods of thunderstorms and temps between 25-32 C. Russian & Ukrainian forces will likely fight through these periods of poor weather to maintain operational momentum in their favor.
3/ Kharkiv OD. Ukrainian offensive activity in this area has been focused on liberating Ternova while resuming its advance in the direction of Vovchansk via assaults to retake Starytsya & Rubizhne. Activity from Kozacha Lopan to Vesele has been limited to exchanges of artillery.

Day 97. The 🇷🇺 military shelled an officially approved armored evacuation vehicle in the #Luhansk region, killing a French journalist. Heavy shelling in the #Donetsk region damaged a branch of the ammonia pipeline. Read more in today's brief 📲…
@DefenceHQ indicates 🇷🇺 capture of #Lyman supports its operational main effort, which likely remains the encirclement of #Severodonetsk and the closure of the pocket around 🇺🇦 forces in #Luhansk region 😞 Military goal of 🇷🇺 is to take control of the Luhansk and #Donetsk regions.
@DefenceHQ Residents of the village of Vysokopillya in the #Kherson region are forced to survive without drugs and food, suffering from torture and repression. Another village bordering the #Dnipropetrovsk region is left without electricity, gas and drinking water as a result of 🇷🇺 shelling

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- #Azowstal ist gefallen, fast 2.500 geraten in Kriegsgefangenschaft;
- Gezerre um NATO-Beitritte von Finnland und Schweden geht weiter - auch Kroatien droht nun mit Veto;
- Moskau bereitet Integration besetzter Gebiete vor.
Neuer Thread 👇
#Azovstal ist gefallen.
Alle ukr.Kämpfer, die sich dort seit Wochen verschanzt hatten, haben sich ergeben und geraten nun in russische Kriegsgefangenschaft.
Insgesamt ist die Rede von 2439 Soldaten und Azow-Kämpfern, die sich seit dem 16. Mai ergeben haben.
Die Verletzten unter ihnen sollen zunächst medizinisch behandelt werden.
Die Azow-Kämpfer erwartet danach vermutlich das Gericht.
Soldaten der regulären ukr. Armee könnten dagegen durchaus auf einen Gefangenentausch hoffen.
Angeblich laufen zwischen Moskau und Kiew Verhandlungen.

1/4Yesterday 🇷🇺 announced that #Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant would be rerouted to supply energy to russia, and Ukraine could buy energy from it if we wanted.
2/4 This power plant is largest in Europe, and supplies 20% of Ukrainian electricity. Russia's statements are a continuation of energy war.
3/4 Ukrenergo, regulating body in this area, replied that:

- The plant is in 🇺🇦 network and under control of 🇺🇦 specialists.

- UA energy system doesn't have physical connection with RU energy system, so no electricity supplies over there are physically possible at the moment
