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.

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.

Durante la visita della delegazione Africana che domani sarà in 🇷🇺 per cercare di mediare una pace fra #Russia ed #Ucraina, la prima ha lanciato un attacco contro #Kyiv.
6 Kinzhal e 6 missili cruise Kalibr sono stati riportati abbattuti (100%), oltre a 2 droni ricognitori. Image
Foto riportate essere delle intercettazioni dei vari missili 🇷🇺 abbattuti oggi nei pressi di Kyiv. Una delle cose più divertenti della vicenda è vedere gli account pro-🇷🇺 criticare quello che sarebbero stati lanciati dai PATRIOT 🇺🇦 in preda al panico mentre tentavano di 1/2 ImageImageImage
Intercettare i missili 🇷🇺. Perché è divertente? Perché il MoD 🇷🇺 ha dichiarato di aver già distrutto sostanzialmente tutta la batteria (6 lanciatori + radar). Come fa la batteria Patriot a sparare nonostante sia stata distrutta? Mistero. 2/2

Alcune considerazioni sull'articolo dell'Economist sulle difese antiaeree 🇺🇦, disponibile qui:…
-1 I #Kinzhal intercettati dal sistema #PATRIOT su #Kyiv si muovevano ad una velocità di 1240 m/s secondo gli operatori, questo vuol dire che si muoveva 1/6 ImageImage
In regime SUPERsonico invece che IPERsonico.
-2 nelle fasi iniziali del conflitto, comandanti di divisione delle batterie contraeree sono rimasti in posizione nonostante sapessero che sarebbero stati colpiti di lì a breve per garantire la il funzionamento della batteria. 2/6
-3 alcuni lanciatori BUK 🇺🇦 sono rimasti attivi e hanno operato da dietro le linee nemiche, in territorio sotto controllo 🇷🇺, nascondendosi dove possibile e organizzando agguati contro l'aviazione 🇷🇺.
-4 i sistemi occidentali sono talmente tanto automatizzati e semplici 3/6

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.

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

The first day of summer is Children's Day in #Ukraine. Yesterday schools closed for the summer.

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.

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.

NEW: #Russian forces conducted another series of strikes against #Ukraine with cruise missiles and #Iranian-made drones overnight on May 28 to 29 and during the day on May 29.

May 29 campaign assessment with @criticalthreats: ImageImageImageImage
2/ #Russian forces launched a relatively higher number of missiles than in recent series of strikes following the largest Russian series of #Shahed strikes since the start of the full-scale invasion of #Ukraine on May 28.
3/ ISW previously assessed that RU forces began a new limited air campaign in recent months to degrade UKR counteroffensive capabilities, but that Russia's focus on targeting #Kyiv is likely further limiting its ability to meaningfully limit potential UKR counteroffensive actions

La orientación política de Gagauzia es claramente prorrusa. Los sentimientos de la población están moldeados principalmente por las narrativas y los medios de comunicación rusos, lo que se ve facilitado por el hecho de que la población es mayoritariamente rusoparlante. 3/15
