Two days ago an enormous cargo plane arrived in #Russia from #Iran.

So no surprise that recent nights of 3-6 drones suddenly became this:

32 Iranian attack drones shot down in the last 24 hours by #Ukraine. But it two managed to get through defences.

1/Quid du rôle des hélicoptères russes sur le front de #Zaporizhzhia (Ka 52, Mi 28, Mi 24) ? Un hélicoptère d'attaque est l'une des armes anti-blindage les plus puissantes sur le champ de bataille moderne.…
2/ Frank Barnaby estime dans le livre The Role and Control of Weapons in the 1990s qu'un hélicoptère au combat devrait être capable de détruire 17 fois sa valeur en chars avant d'être tué, hors coût de soutien et d'entretien des chars.
3/ Un rapport de novembre 2022 du @RUSI_org note que la Russie a initialement utilisé ses hélicoptères d'attaque pour mener des raids jusqu'à 50 km derrière les lignes de front ukrainiennes, mais a été forcée de changer de tactique en raison de lourdes pertes.

Welcome to another week of daily threads on Europe's war. Updated throughout the day (and night) every single day.

It's Day 481 of #Russia's illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

To review Sunday's thread, click here.
I tempted fate by saying I was hoping for sleep. Soon enough alarms were sounding in the south of #Ukraine.

Suspected cruise missiles launched from #Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and #Odesa has reported explosions. Hopefully it's just air defence.

Good news is just coming in from #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) where it seems to be quiet now.

There were reported to be three targets - all three may have been shot down. I'm not hearing of damage yet.

Day 480 of the war. #Russia defending stubbornly with reinforced lines in the areas of #Ukraine they stole.

But I think the real push, with most forces, is yet to come. Here's another daily thread. There's been one every day, but I do need support pls!
Yesterday's thread can be found on the link below, click and scroll if you missed anything.

Loads of nice photos and videos in Saturday's thread and how there seems to have been a #Russia-#Africa plot to deny missile strikes, but Russia's MoD messed up!

Who doesn't like a bit of alliteration? And here are some sweet Sunday sounds to start your day.

Less than 20km north of #Henichesk in #Kherson region there was a big explosion, then many, many more in the village of #Rykove as #Russia's weapon/ammo store there went up in smoke!

Russians blow up hydraulic structures in the temporarily occupied territories in fear of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces.

The occupiers mined a large number of such structures in the #Zaporizhzhia and #Kherson regions, Dudar, a representative of the Department
* Image
of Environmental Security and Mine Action of the Ministry of Defense, said during a round table at the Military Media Center:

“They are now blowing up small hydrotechnical structures in various settlements every day.”

The consequences of these actions are not yet large-scale, each such detonation affects the agricultural lands of one or two villages. However, this happens regularly.

Russians are deliberately harming the environment of Ukraine and committing ecocide.

With all 6 #ZNPP reactors in ‘cold shutdown’, basically super safe storage, if you don’t think Russians will destroy all other parts of the #Zaporizhzhia #Nuclear Power Plant, & likely do serious damage to the reactor buildings too, you may be living in an alternative universe.
The only thing @iaeaorg achieved, was convincing @energoatom_ua operators, already under extreme duress from RU AF & @RosatomGlobal terrorists, to put remaining reactors into ‘cold shutdown’.

Update on the #Zaporizhzhia attacks:
- This is clearly the main focus of the Ukrainian planned counteroffensive, masses of armored column pushes are far beyond the scope of "probing" missions
- This is where the Russian fixed defenses and mobile reserves are strongest 1/9
- The terrain is flat with many towns, but the Russians have prepared around 4 "layers" of trenches, ditches, minefields, and anti-tank
- At the center of the 4th and the centerpoint of the defenses is the city of Tokmak, the main logistical hub for the entire Russian defense 2/9
- The Ukrainian objective is hold down fixed defenses with artillery while using the armor to bypass them, move on Tokmak, and compromise the entire defense
- Both forces in the sector are around equal, Ukr armored forces better equipped and Ru air forces more numerous 3/9

🇷🇺 Militär Blogger Rybar schreiben, dass alle aktuellen Offensiven Aktionen der AFU 🇺🇦 an der #Zaporizhzhia Front nicht die wirkliche Offensive ist. — die richtig starken Einheiten der AFU 🇺🇦 sind weiterhin in 2. und 3. Linie.
Aktuell wird das Netz von 🇷🇺 Erfolgs-Parolen.

überflutet. „Alle AFU 🇺🇦Bemühungen wurden zurück geschlagen, nur kleine Durchbrüche der AFU 🇺🇦 — horrende Verluste der AFU“ — Aktuell kommen von 🇺🇦 Seite keinen wirklichen Informationen. Die 🇷🇺 Propaganda bestimmt aktuell den „Informationsraum“, auch in den westlichen Medien

Wenn die Ukraine 🇺🇦 aktuell den Russen 🇷🇺 diesen Raum vorübergehend überlässt, muss sie dafür einen sehr guten Grund haben, nämlich ihre Offensiven Ziele noch nicht offen zu legen. Ein einfaches Bsp. dafür ist, dass wir bei den 🇷🇺 Militär Bloggern lesen, dass die 🇷🇺 Airforce

1/ Damage to the #Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (KHPP) dam in the early hours of June 6 caused massive flooding of the #Dnipro River delta, river wetlands, estuaries, and shoreline settlements in #Kherson Oblast.

Our latest: ImageImageImageImage
2/ The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and #Ukrainian officials stated that the drop in the water level at the #Kakhovka Reservoir should not affect the safety of the #Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP).
3/ #Ukrainian officials stated that #Russian forces intentionally destroyed the KHPP dam and suggested that the Russian military did not prepare for subsequent flooding.

🧵 (Thread) 1/ Oggi nell'#Ucraina meridionale una diga di epoca sovietica sul fiume Dnipro, a 30 km da #Kherson, è stata fatta esplodere, provocando il rilascio di acque alluvionali in tutta la zona. Ecco cosa sappiamo finora 👇 Image
2/ La diga in questione è quella di #Kakhovka, costruita nel 1956 come parte della centrale idroelettrica di Kakhovka, alta 30 metri e lunga 3,2 km.
3/ Le implicazioni di questa falla vanno oltre la zona del conflitto. Il bacino idrico fornisce acqua alla penisola di #Crimea, che la #Russia sostiene di aver annesso nel 2014, e alla centrale nucleare di #Zaporizhzhia, sotto il controllo russo.

Updates throughout the day, each day.

Thanks for reading, replying, boosting, contributing!

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

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

Day 464 of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine starts with another horrendous wait to see if air defence can protect them as cruise missiles head towards them as I type.

This is THE daily thread with all the news of the brutal war in one place, updated all day (and night!)
So much happened yesterday - here's the link to the start of Thursday's thread.

Deaths from #Russia's missiles because shelters were locked
#Crimea bridge falling down?
Big explosions in #Belgorod + #Kursk regions and the rebel Russian units attack again

Almost all of #Ukraine is under threat right now. Sirens sound across the country except for a handful of western regions.

#Cherkasy, just south of #Kyiv is initially thought to be in the firing line of the missiles launched by #Russia from bombers over the Caspian Sea. Image

Day 462 of #Europe's war, the last day of May.

Mercifully a quiet morning so far this Wednesday in #Ukraine

This is my 462nd daily thread.
All the info you need about #Russia's attack in one handy thread, updated throughout the day.

You can support me with a coffee (see bio)🙏
If you happen to have missed all yesterday's news, put the kettle on and prepare for a long read!

Here's the link for yesterday's thread on what happened in #Ukraine and #Russia.

The biggest event overnight happened in #Russia's #Krasnodar region.

Drones hit the Afipsky Oil Refinery and a fire soon took hold, although it's since been extinguished; no-one was hurt.

About 150km from the front, that's less fuel helping Russia kill Ukrainians.

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.
