The continuing of #Russian offensive operations around #Bakhmut and #Avdiivka, as well as along the #Luhansk and western #Donetsk front lines, is a further indicator that #Putin remains committed to victory in a protracted war.
It is not a given, nevertheless, that #Putin will continue fighting regardless of cost until the day he dies.

Putin is nevertheless putting no terms for negotiation on the table now other than #Russia’s total success. 2/
The choices before #Ukraine and its Western backers at this time are thus relatively straightforward:

(1) Ukraine can unilaterally cease fighting even as #Russian attacks by ground and air continue, which would lead to disastrous defeat. 3/

Hello again. We've reached day 395 of the war.

#Russia's forward momentum in #Ukraine appears to have stalled and splits and tensions are starting to show among the illegal invaders, from the top down.

Here's another daily thread with #Ukraine news updated throughout the day.
As usual, here's a handy link to yesterday's thread for those who missed anything, such as some tasty fires, a kicking 'priest' and sadly, more war crimes and devastation.

#StandWithUkraine #RussiansGoHome

Now the usual numbers game.
Another 720 wasted lives and grieving families in #Russia as illegal invaders are sacrificed to #Putin.

Not much else of note except 9 MLRS equipment and a helicopter destroyed.

Welcome to Day 394 of the war - exactly 13 months since #Russia began its illegal full invasion.

Here's the daily news thread for Friday.
Thursday was quiet and one of the shorter threads - catch up here:

Things are hotting up in #Russia - and not only with the end of winter.

There's been a definite uptick in #RussiaOnFire stories in the last two weeks and some interesting places are becoming victims of 'careless smokers'.

Today I have for you videos from near #Yekaterinburg

This is in #Aramil, in Sverdlovsk region.

The #RussiaOnFire building is the research and production complex. This plant actively works for #Russia's Defence sector.

NEW: #Wagner Group financier Yevgeny #Prigozhin has softened his rhetoric towards the #Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) likely out of fear of completely losing his mercenary force in #Bakhmut.

Latest on #Ukraine w/ @criticalthreats :
2/ #Prigozhin voiced his concerns about a possible Ukrainian counteroffensive in eastern UKR during a 23-minute interview on March 23 in which he claimed that UKR has 200,000 reserves concentrating to attack along the entire eastern frontline, into Belgorod Oblast, & in Bakhmut.
3/ #Prigozhin also claimed that the Ukrainians currently have 80,000 troops in #Bakhmut, Slovyansk, and Kostyantynivka to counterattack Bakhmut – a claim that former Russian officer Igor #Girkin observed was dubious.

1/ It's been a while since I've done a thread on the overall pace and prospects of 🇷🇺 offensives in 🇺🇦... so here's a quick one on our latest @TheStudyofWar assessment on indicators that the overall 🇷🇺 spring offensive appears to be nearing culmination.
2/ 🇺🇦 mil officials have made several statements supporting @TheStudyofWar's assessment that the #Donbas offensive is nearing culmination. Eastern Group spox Cherevaty stated that current 🇷🇺 offensives cannot be called "a major strategic operation."
3/ 🇷🇺 forces have struggled to secure operationally significant gains and are suffering major losses in the 4 areas of the front where they are pursuing offensives- #Luhansk Oblast, #Bakhmut, the Avdiivka-Donetsk City area, and in western #Donetsk Oblast.

Sunday 19 March, Day 389 of #Russia's war of choice.

Here's yet another daily thread for your delectation!

If you missed something yesterday, here's the link forall of Saturday's news relevant to #Ukraine.

Bunker Boy emerged from the Kremlin yesterday, turning up in #Crimea, which he likes to do to celebrate anniversaries of the capture.

Putin also survived a trip to occupied #Mariupol', where he allegedly met with locals, but on footage I saw it was all officials.
What I find interesting is how the Kremlin tried to make out #Putin had driven to #Crimea, and again today they're at pains to show footage of him "driving around #Mariupol."

I believe this shows there's serious concern in Moscow about his health, so he must prove he's fit.

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.

3/ #Russian forces have made only minimal tactical gains along the entire #Luhansk Oblast frontline over the last week, and #Ukrainian forces have likely recently managed to conduct counterattacks and regain territory in Luhansk Oblast.

It's Wednesday, Day 385 of the war, #Ukraine's existential fight for its' existence.

Here's another daily thread documenting #Russia's ongoing invasion, war crimes and all the news, all the time, updated throughout the day.

There was a lot of important news on Tuesday.
More awful shelling and missiles fired at #Ukraine citizens. An American drone downed by #Russia's air force, a car bomb attack in occupied #Melitopol and a new #Wagner cemetery.

Missed it? Click here:

Firstly reports of explosions in #Sloviansk - probably we will get more details in the morning.

But, while #Bakhmut holds, #Russia is creeping closer to Sloviansk and #Kramatorsk. Confirmed that the invaders have taken the village of #Zaliznyanske, north-west of Bakhmut.

35 miles in 379 days!

More death and destruction from #Russia already this morning.

Four people are dead in #Lviv region after local officials say a rocket hit a residential area.

Hello there!
Bonjour les amis! belle journée à tous!
Enjoy your day you all!
2/ Operational situation update/ #russian_invasion in #Ukraine on March 8, 2023
The situation is better and better each day for #Ukraine (for the last 3 days) around #Bakhmut!
good news about the global area too.
let's dive in :
3/ "In the Bakhmut direction, the opponent, despite significant losses, continues to storm the city of Bakhmut. He also led unsuccessful offensive actions in the areas of #Berhívka (fck yeah!), #DubovoVasylivka #OrihovoVasilivka, #Bogdanívka, #Ivanívske and #Klishchiyvika.

#Luhansk Oblast:

#Russian forces conducted limited attacks along the Kupyansk-Svatove-Kreminna line on March 7. Geolocated footage depicting Russian forces storming and capturing Ukrainian positions NW of #Kreminna indicates limited Russian advances.
2/ The #Ukrainian General Staff reported that #Russian forces conducted unsuccessful offensive operations near Hryanykivka (54km northwest of #Svatove), Nevske (17km north of #Kreminna), Bilohorivka (10km south of Kreminna), and Spirne (25km south of Kreminna).

#Russia's offensive to capture #Bakhmut will likely culminate whether its forces capture the city or not. The #Russian military will likely struggle to maintain any subsequent offensive operations for some months, giving #Ukraine a chance to seize the initiative. 🧵(1/9)
2/ The conventional #Russian military recently massed and lost significant numbers of mobilized personnel for a since-culminated offensive push near #Vuhledar, #Donetsk Oblast.
3/ Russian "major" offensives in the #Kupyansk, #Svatove, and #Kreminna directions in #Luhansk Oblast are also failing to generate any significant successes on the frontlines.

NEW: #Ukrainian forces may be conducting a limited fighting withdrawal in eastern #Bakhmut & are continuing to inflict high casualties against advancing #Russian forces, but it is still too early to assess Ukrainian intentions concerning a complete withdrawal from the city. 🧵1/6
2/ The #Ukrainian defense of #Bakhmut remains strategically sound as it continues to consume #Russian manpower and equipment as long as Ukrainian forces do not suffer excessive casualties.
3/ The #Russian military’s attritional campaign to capture #Bakhmut has likely prompted Russian milbloggers to adopt more realistic expectations for further Russian operations in #Ukraine.

W. #Luhansk/E. #Kharkiv

Russian forces reportedly continued offensive operations near #Svatove & #Kreminna. The reported Ukrainian evacuation of vulnerable citizens from #Kupyansk does not suggest #Ukraine believes that Russian forces threaten the city.
2/ Geolocated footage published on March 4 indicates that #Russian forces likely secured gains north of Novovodyane (16km southwest of #Svatove).
3/ A Russian commander inaccurately framed Russian operations in #Luhansk and #Kharkiv oblasts as limited in scope, likely to set informational conditions for the potential culmination of the Russian offensive in this sector of the frontline.
