Welcome to the daily war thread for Tuesday 20 June 2023.
Can you believe it's Day 482 of #Russia's full invasion?
Each day a new 🧵 with all the important news in one place, updated live.

Already a busy day for #Ukraine's air defenders as #Russia launched drone attacks..
First a quick reminder that the link below is the start of yesterday's thread in case you wish to scroll through at your leisure to catch up on what you missed.

Also don't forget DMs open for tip-offs and stories % donations of coffee welcome too, see bio
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.

The high temperatures, clear skies, and slack winds are contributing to a widespread "moderate" air pollution event across eastern and central UK right now. 🧵#airquality #airpollution Image
Typical of heatwave conditions, urban background and rural monitors are detecting elevated surface #ozone pollution across Midlands, North West, N Wales, Yorkshire, Scottish Borders and Eastern regions.
What is interesting though, is that the "moderate" air pollution in #London and the south east is being driven mainly by enhanced particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5).

CORRECTION: The 5/29 edition of Pluralistic quoted $20k Rebyota; this was the rumored pre-release price; the actual average wholesale price is $10.8k. Thanks to Benjamin Jolley for catching this error, and to Stephen Skolnick for getting to the bottom of it.

1/4. In the aftermath of the tragedy that took #OurLondonFamily, we asked for policy changes to address #Islamophobia and hate in #Ontario and beyond. Image
2/4. Today, another step has been implemented towards positive change. We welcome the Government of Ontario's commitment towards the City of #London's Anti-Hate Response Pilot project.
3/4. We also thank the London Muslim Mosque for partnering on this initiative, which is a needed step in the right direction. We can all do more in the current fight against hate.

Day 439 of the war. #Russia's war on its peaceful neighbour.

That neighbour, #Ukraine, continues to be under attack as Monday 8 May begins.

Here's another daily thread with all you need to know about what's happening.
Catch up on yesterday's news here⬇️
#Kyiv - at the end of yesterday's thread, just before midnight UK time, I showed video of a car on fire after drone wreckage fell on it after being shot down.

Now Mayor of the capital, @Vitaliy_Klychko has confirmed there are injuries, four in total in two different incidents. Image
Two of the injured in #Kyiv have been hospitalised.

Another explosion is reported in the capital now too.

Sunday is Day 438 of #Russia's catastrophic full invasion of #Ukraine

Each day you've been able to find all the news of Europe's war in one place with these daily threads.

It's all free, but if you can support what I do with a coffee I'd be very grateful

I forgot this yesterday (thanks Dave for remembering!) so let's do this straightaway!

As I post so much, people couldn't find the start of the previous day's thread, which they found handy to review what they missed. So here's the start of Saturday's feed
#Ukraine was attacked last night. Here's a summary:

#Dnipropetrovsk region - again huge artillery fire on #Nikopol with one dead and 3 injured.
#Mykolaiv region - a ballistic missile hit "an industrial enterprise"
#Kyiv - a reconnaissance drone was shot down in the region.
