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.

🇺🇦🧵🗣Kenneth Gregg here: (1/6) "Midsummer Eve update. On the Eastern Front, we have gone into new positions and despite retreat orders from #Sieverodonetsk, the fighting continues. It is probably to keep the Russians at bay as it takes time to organize the retreat because-->
2:"...we have civilians to take with us. Probably we will now tonight experience a massive Ukrainian artillery fire and in protection of it the retreat itself takes place. It's a classic tactic.
South of Izuim we have small Ukrainian advances but no noticeable changes. -->
3:"On the #Kharkiv front, the Ukrainian positions are under constant artillery fire, but no significant Ukrainian losses.
So to #Kherson, that I am not allowed to report much about. Five artillery shelling on the Russian positions during the day. -->

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

🇺🇦🧵🗣️Report from Kenneth Gregg from yesterday (1/8): "Some info from #Kherson that I am allowed to publish: there has been a whole series of explosions in Kherson today [yesterday]. No information if it is our guerilla squads or our artillery that have been at it.-->
2:" I have 4 fellow soldiers who are active on this front and they have not been active on their phone apps since yesterday afternoon. This means that the info lock is tight.
In #Kharkiv no frontal changes, nor any major changes on the eastern front. -->
4:"The airfield near #Sieverodonetsk is still held by us. The #Bakhmut line is holding and the Russian attacks today have been repulsed. I have informed you that HIMARS have arrived and so have other weapons. -->

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 🤷‍♀️

As a result of the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 592 🇺🇦 children have been injured, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on June 22. The figures are expected to be higher since they do not include casualties in areas where hostilities are ongoing 😔
Decisive battles are taking place on the territory of the #Sievierodonetsk and #Lysychansk agglomerations, and the 🇷🇺 leadership demands that its troops reach the administrative borders of the #Luhansk region by June 26, – says Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar.

1/ Hey @NikaMelkozerova, making you a whole 🧵 about why I hate everything russian as a russian speaker born and raised in Eastern Ukraine, why Ukrainians have the right to hate and why no one has the right to lecture us about how we should feel. I hope you find it helpful.
2/ It's probably good to start from quoting a teacher from #Kharkiv
"I taught russian language and literature. ...I instilled love for the 🇷🇺 language and literature. I’d love for those liberators to see what they liberated us from. From now on we will have nothing russian."
3/ People who have the nerve to be telling Ukrainians how we shouldn't be so angry and "hateful" - please work on your emotional intelligence, empathy and humility. In the meantime - please shut the fuck up.

1/ MAJ #UkraineMap Rapport mi journée 13 Juin 2022 - General Staff
La situation au Nord de #Kharkiv continue à fluctuer fortement mais tres localement, du fait de la proximité du territoire Ru (ils ont l'avantage d'avoir du matériel et des troupes inaccessibles aux forces UA) ImageImage

Oggi focus su un tema pratico circa l'invasione dell'#Ucraina da parte della #Russia e il modo in cui viene raccontata.
qualcuno sta vincendo?
la risposta è no.
le guerre purtroppo non rispettano i tempi televisivi e i ritmi dei social
quindi che succede?
vediamolo insieme
Nelle ultime settimane l'argomento principe di quei media che non sono putiniani, ma che ripetono quello che #Putin vorrebbe che gli occidentali pensassero, è che gli aiuti all'#Ucraina non servono a nulla, sono anzi dannosi e comunque la #Russia sta vincendo.
E' assolutamente vero che l'#Ucraina è in difficoltà, è vero che per sua stessa ammissione sta subendo drammatiche perdite in battaglia.
E' altrettanto vero che sia a corto di armi e munizioni, per 3 motivi fondamentali di natura molto pratica…

1/ Ukrainian TVD, Day 98-107. The first week & a half of June has seen the Russo-Ukrainian War escalate into a deadly attritional phase dominated by artillery duels and positional battles with little major change in the forward edge of the battle area. #UkraineRussianWar Image
2/ Weather Outlook. Forecast for the next ten-days will see an initial 4-day period of thunderstorms in the Donbas that may slow operations in non-urban terrain. Temps will range from 31-14 C with higher humidity. Cloud cover & wind speed will make toss bombing problematic. Image
3/ Kharkiv OD. This remains a critical front and has become an unstable region over the past week. The RAF needs to expand its northern enclave to maintain pressure on Kharkiv & pin down UAF units still defending here. #Kharkiv Image

The president's office has finally begun to deal with those who were obliged by duty to be ready for war, but we're not. After Vladimir Zelensky's trip to #Kharkiv, the head of the regional defense, Roman #Dudin, was fired. In #Chernivtsi, #SBU counterintelligence detained the
assistant chief of #Kherson #SBU, the head of the Anti-Terrorist Center, Igor #Sadokhin, on suspicion of treason. He was suspected of passing information about the evacuation of security forces to #Russian Special Services. Sadokhin's arrest was not accidental.
All the personnel of the #Kherson #SBU moved to #Chernivtsi with the help of one Vladimir #Kompanichenko, head of the #SBU in #Chernivtsi region. It is known that until 2021 he held the position of deputy head of #SBU of #Kherson region.

Valutazione aggiornata dell’Institute for the Study of War sulla situazione nel Donbass. ⤵️…
- L'esercito russo probabilmente mantiene il controllo della maggior parte di #Severodonetsk a partire dal 6 giugno, sebbene la situazione esatta nella città rimanga poco chiara. È probabile che il controllo dell'area cambi di mano frequentemente.
- L'esercito russo nella regione di #Izyum non ha ottenuto successi confermati, mentre le truppe che avanzavano a ovest da #Lyman hanno fatto pochi progressi.
