Happy Easter!
It's Day 3,332 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine.
That's true - it took me a while to work out!

What started with #Crimea, spread to the #Donbas, then the eventual full invasion on 24 Feb 2022

It's Day 410 of the full invasion and here's my daily thread for Sunday
I should say it's Palm Sunday in #Ukraine (and #Russia) with the Orthodox World celebrating Easter a week later this year.

If you need to catch up with Saturday's news from Europe's war, then simply click and scroll here⬇️

Also last night I revealed the results of the poll, and you rejected my proposal of switching my profile pic to the anti-war drawing by a 12 year old Russian girl who's father was arrested because of it.

The result was 62-13

This is the start of the daily 🧵for Day 386 of #Russia's war of choice in #Ukraine.

For all Wednesday's news, including US pilots volunteering for Ukraine, assassination plot against an EU figure and an unexplained fire on occupied #Berdyansk, click⬇️

I'll start today with #BakhmutHolds.
No big changes to report. #Wagner troops have advanced right into the centre, but it's constantly changing as the cattle get slaughtered and retreat.

Some #Russia channels claim #Khromove on the west of #Bakhmut is captured but not confirmed.
Speaking of slaughter of Russians, the number of invading soldiers killed in the last 24 hours tops 1,000 again. A large number of #Russia's troops died in an attack at #Nevelske 20km from #Avdiivka

High numbers of tanks + artillery systems too, plus the aircraft I noted y'day.

It's Sunday 29 January, but also Day 340 of #Russia's war on its peaceful neighbour.

It's been a crazily busy evening. Both in #Ukraine and #Iran.

Welcome to the daily thread. Here's the link if you need a catch-up on yesterday's events:

Also, I ended up doing a separate thread on #Iran where drones, explosions, fires and earthquakes were all to the fore.

Here's where I tried to keep track of what is/was going on:

One of the big developing stories last night was the alleged attack on occupied #Ilovaisk.

In 2014 unarmed #Ukraine soldiers, given "safe passage" by #Russia were ruthlessly gunned down in Ilovaisk.

This video supposedly shows some of the 7 HIMARS strikes on the train station.

Day 305 of the war and welcome to another daily thread with all the news on #Ukraine's attempt to rid their country of Russians

Today there may be fewer updates than usual (sure you understand why!)

Lots of news yesterday. catch up here
First today sad news from #Kherson which has had a terrible 24 hours.

After the murder of 8 civilians when #Russia shelled the central market area, news now that 3 soldiers helping to demine formerly occupied areas have been killed.
One of the Kremlin's explosives blew them up.
How stupid are the occupiers?

Trying to raise the spirits of locals and spread propaganda in #Melitopol.
Except the Russians cannot even spell the town's name correctly - this says "Miletopol"🤡🤡🤦

Just gone midnight (UK time) and the weekend already.

I'm starting the daily thread covering #Russia's war earlier than usual as there are attacks taking place right now on #Ukraine

It's Day 178 of the full invasion of its peaceful neighbour

Right now ALL of #Ukraine is experiencing air raid warnings, but not everything is the same as usual.

A few minutes ago, at the end of yesterday's thread, I reported on explosions in occupied #Melitopol, but plenty of missiles being fired from #Russia into free Ukraine...
However, it seems as though #Russia's OWN air defences have taken out some of their own missiles leaving #Belgorod!

Difficult to confirm this, but looking at confirmed radar reports of missiles being fired from Russian territory, towards east #Ukraine this does seem very likely.

Wednesday 3 August. Day 161 of #Russia's full scale invasion of peaceful #Ukraine

Welcome to my daily thread, with all the news from, and affecting the war. DMs open for tips (anonymous if preferred)

Thx to those who already supported me.
Still big problems for #Russia in the occupied south of #Ukraine. British Intel today highlighting the transport links which will hinder their attempts to fend off a Ukraine assault in #Kherson or counter attack here towards #Mykolaiv.
The #Ukraine land assault in #Kherson will come, but #Russia adding 1000s of extra (untrained) conscripts + Wagner mercenaries to the warzone, complicates matters

The invaders now threaten #Zaporizhzhia having failed to take all of #Donetsk

So for now 🇺🇦continues to hit 🇷🇺bases

We have entered the sixth month of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

Welcome again to the daily thread.

Day 152 and the senseless killing continues, all because of one little man.

All the main news and analysis updated throughout the day!

At times updates today may be delayed as I'm on the move, but I will catch up with everything in bursts of activity when I have internet and a seat!

DMs open for tip offs. I try to answer all questions @ me too.
First the #Ukraine estimate of #Russia's losses.

Whether or not the figures are accurate (they're likely inflated at least a little), there are a lot of RU soldiers being killed the last few days.

Quite a lot of Russian rocket attacks to report in #Ukraine already

Starting in #Kharkiv where war crimes investigators are on the scene after purely civilian infrastructure was hit this morning.
Apartments & a university in the centre of the city were struck.


One injury reported so far in #Kharkiv after this morning's attack by #Russia which saw many rockets fly into the city centre.

#Ukraine insists these were only civilian buildings - recently #Russia has claimed Ukraine's army has been using universities for military purposes

First, a reminder, between 2-3pm I will be online @Independent to answer your questions in the live "Ask Me Anything" session.

Trolls take advantage to ask loaded Qs, so any more sensible comments or queries most welcome. Leave your question here now:…
#Russia continues to make no progress in #Donetsk region and still has not "cleaned up" the whole of #Luhansk yet.

Various attempts to move forward on the frontline were repelled by #Ukraine
Russian sources are still claiming they are rotating troops to cover for lack of success
