#StormShadow, finally delivered to #Ukraine.

This is a step forward, since now Ukraine is able to destroy targets it could not destroy so far. This applies especially to the bunkers in #Sevastopol but also offers a new (good) option for the #Kerch bridge.…

@pplsassembly did you not consider peace a good cause? Do you wish the Tories to keep sending UK workers' (OUR) money to a literally nazi regime? To keep committing terrorist attacks (#nordstream2; #ZaporozhyeNPP; #kerch bridge, Crimea; #BlackSeaFleet) against Russia? Pl respond.
@STWuk you attended the demo. Why don't you make a stand against #naziukraine? Your position re Ukraine is untenable. In order to denazify Ukraine, save LPR & DPR citizens and try and stop nato expansion, which you advocate, Russia had to undertake a SMO.

This is your headline @STWuk
Nothing about how Ukraine is a literally nazi regime, how it committed genocide on thousands of DPR and LPR citizens since the 2014 CIA led nazi coup.
Nothing about the EU literally advocating nazism, voting to glorify nazism at the UN SC on 4th Nov. Image

Risultati preliminari dell’indagine russa sull’attacco al ponte di #Kerch, in Crimea, con un accenno agli intrecci fra l’attentato e l’accordo sul grano fra Russia e Ucraina.

Un 🧵

1/9… Image
L’attentato sarebbe stato organizzato dall’intelligence ucraina, forse insieme a servizi stranieri. L’esplosivo per l'attacco sarebbe partito all’inizio di agosto, camuffato in bobine di pellicola da costruzione (un carico complessivo di 22 tonnellate), dal porto di Odessa.
Il fatto che un carico di esplosivo diretto contro la Russia sia partito da Odessa costituirebbe una violazione dell’accordo sul grano, che proibisce la spedizione di armi e materiale bellico da e verso i porti ucraini.

1/ Operational situation update/ #russian_invasion in #Ukraine on October 8, 2022
The situation remains almost the same for now in #Luhansk. #UAarmy is still fighting hard but right now Ru are resisting pretty well in the defense line they have globally established.
2/ there r still some Ukr advances recorded on several settlements & it is not as easy to deploy all the power needed past this river line and with small roads, only small units can act on some areas.
Not sure #Kreminna is one immediate target now as Ukr don't really push there.
3/ South #Bakhmut situation is still evolving in favor of Ru right now.
they are losing a lots of men, but are still making progress and are almost in total control of the heights west, past the valley.
but globally not threatening much out of that...

#Ukraine, #Russland

Dieses Video soll von heute Abend stammen und eine Diesellok mit mindestens 11 Wagons zeigen, die zum Test die #Krim Brücke [#Kerch, #Kersch], überquert.


Züge können nach Angaben des Verkehrsministeriums von #Russland die Auto- und Eisenbahnbrücke zwischen der Halbinsel #Krim und dem russischen Festland wieder passieren. Die russische Behörde teilt mit, dass die Brücke wieder nutzbar sei.

Quelle: NTV
Das Ganze erinnert mich an die Brücke von Remagen. Die Amerikaner konnten sie für kurze Zeit nutzen, bevor sie wegen der strukturellen Schäden und der hohen Belastung einstürzte.
