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!

#Putin vs #Patrushev

A few days ago, there were some rather momentous events on which we took our time shedding light, allowing the consequences to materialise. A few days ago, #Russian President Vladimir Putin had a major disagreement with...

the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolay #Patrushev. Thus, during another online meeting with the leadership of the security bloc, #Putin shared his plans to involve Chechen fighters of Ramzan #Kadyrov to fight saboteurs in the #Belgorod oblast.
2/9 Image
This decision was sharply opposed by Nikolai #Patrushev. He said that the situation could be brought under control without involving the "Kadyrovites" and that the increasing influence of #Kadyrov's representatives in the #Belgorod region would bring imbalance into...

Following on the attack on #Belgorod, the response of Russian state TV to the #KakhovkaDam was markedly different, with some important implications.

tl;dr it was well prepared (probably in advance), and #Russia's framing suggests it isn't very committed to occupied regions.
First, the attack was attributed to Ukraine from the start. The first couple of days it was chalked up to heavy artillery, supported by the claim that Ukraine regularly shelled the dam. Reports also suggested that US-supplied HIMARS were used to shell the dam.
2/14 Image
By June 8, Russian TV stopped mentioning artillery and HIMARS and instead referred to the dam as being blown up or destroyed by Ukrainian forces/fighters/nationalists/radicals (used interchangeably). There was no acknowledgement of changing explanations for what happened.

#GuerreEnUkraine D+470 (08/06) - Tous Théâtres

Devant l'afflux de commentaires, j'appelle à prendre du recul

Que sait-on ?

L'offensive a commencé comme je l'indique dans les tableaux de bord PdS2 depuis plusieurs semaines, par la phase de préparation

L'offensive est passée dans la phase du mouvement terrestre
Mais ces mouvements (dans les directions #MalaTokmachka, #Robotyne-#Verbove & #VelykaNovosilka) sont limités par les volumes engagés

Au point qu'on hésite à les qualifier : reconnaissances ou non ?

Mais on ne regarde peut-être pas au bon endroit...

Regardons les arrivées de tirs détectées par les satellites NASA-FIRMS sur les 2 dernières semaines

Entre #Zaporizhzia et #Donetsk, presque rien👇

Je rappelle que les assauts🇺🇦 ont été lancés sans préparation d'artillerie Image

The #Kremlin’s push for a “long war” against #Ukraine may have a snowball effect on domestic insurgency within Russia - say experts @PetroBurkovskyi, @t_tarasiuk in the article for @KyivIndependent
The growth of resistance movements within #Russia, both actual and nominally formed, has been particularly noticeable since 2022. There are sources of serious domestic insurgency in Russia.
The diversity of the groups’ ideological platforms, variety, and geography speak for the genuity and independence of these anti-Putin groups.

#Putin Demanded More Victims Among the Civilians in #Russia

Yesterday, a man resembling Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting with Transport Minister Vitaly Savelyev and Oleg Belozerov, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Russian Railways.
1/17 Image
The meeting was quite casual. As usual, the double successfully coped, getting used to the image of the president better and better. #Russian President Vladimir #Putin himself, despite feeling unwell, received reports yesterday and took part in two meetings.

During a video conference with representatives of the leadership of the military and power blocs, the president was briefed on the situation at the front. Representatives of the military leadership told #Putin how remarkably and successfully they...

several settlements are under constant shelling. It should be recalled that earlier, #Putin spoke about similar problems in the #Belgorod Region, saying that mainly #Ukrainians live there, so let them "kill" each other, it is not a problem.

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

The dissonant Russian responses to and reporting about the limited raid in #Belgorod Oblast continue to suggest that the Russian leadership has not yet decided how to react to these limited cross-border raids into #Russia.
2/ The contradictory reporting from official Russian sources about the situation in #Belgorod Oblast and Gladkov’s apparent personal decision to respond to the RDK and LSR suggests that the MoD and Gladkov are not coordinating their responses to the raids.
3/ ISW has previously reported that Russian officials have disproportionately responded to the limited raids into #Russia to assuage growing Russian anxiety about the war in #Ukraine while supporting ongoing info operations that aim to present the war as existential to Russia.

#Prigozhin also seized on general Russian discontent with security on the #Belgorod Oblast border to threaten that #WagnerGroup forces may operate in Russian territory without approval from the Russian military command. 🧵
2/ #Prigozhin claimed that #Wagner will not wait for an invitation or permission from the MoD to defend #Belgorod Oblast if the MoD does not curb security threats to the region.
3/ #Prigozhin justified his threat of insubordination by claiming that #Wagner aims to protect the Russian people, implying that Wagner will assume the role of border defender that the MoD should already occupy.

Day 466 of the daily thread covering the #UkraineRussianWar begins here.

All the news and analysis, throughout the day and night - looks like little sleep again tonight as it's believed #Russia has fired cruise missiles, currently an hour away from hitting #Ukraine.

The situation is still developing. We hope the missile launch was a fake, or dummy warheads to "draw out" #Ukraine's air defence.

For all yesterday's news, including the terrible attack on #Dnipro, click and scroll here:

Also hearing now that cruise-missile laden ships are in the launch zone in the Black Sea. This is not uncommon, but #Russia's current tactic of a mixed missile attack increases the likelihood of ships being involved.

Estimated time of arrival of rockets: 03:10 Kyiv time.
