The 133rd daily thread of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

One of Putin's closest allies confirmed it's not just about #Donbas; the goal remains regime change & to effectively conquer the whole country.

But big damage was inflicted by 🇺🇦 y'day on Donetsk.
Here's the news updated⬇️
Starting with the view from UK's Ministry of Defence Intelligence.

#Sloviansk (and #Kramatorsk) the next big targets for #Russia and losing these would be a huge psychological blow (more than Lysychansk) for #Ukraine

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia Image
However, #Ukraine's Defence staff says they beat off a Russian offensive yesterday.

"the enemy shelled civilian infrastructure in #Siversk + #Hryhorivka. (we) inflicted significant losses on the enemy during his attempted offensive. The occupiers left."

Tuesday's thread on #Russia's war of choice starts here.

It's Day 132 of the illegal conflict.
A late start to the thread today, primarily because it's been one of the quietest days so far since the bombs started falling

Read on for all the news of #Ukraine's fight for survival
I've spent the last 30 minutes going through replies, DMs and questions etc. The most common comment is along the lines of "Is the game up for #Ukraine?"

Certainly things are not going well for Ukraine right now for reasons I'll come to shortly

The main thing to remember is:
Any sort of "peace deal" even a ceasefire, plays right into the Kremlin's hands.
Following the 2014 invasion, the #Minsk accords were foisted on #Ukraine by two western partners🇫🇷+🇩🇪. #Russia refused to allow 🇬🇧+🇺🇸 to the table.

Putin used the last years to massively..

Welcome to my 130th daily thread on #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine.

While #Luhansk looks to be lost, a fightback continues from the Ukrainians in the south of the country.

All the news right here in one thread...

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
Two big news events overnight as #Ukraine hits #Russia in both 🇺🇦+🇷🇺

First the strike over the border in #Russia.
Officials in #Belgorod say 3 people died and four are injured.

A local TG channel helpfully put together a "highlights" video of the night's action!
#Ukraine has not yet admitted the attack in #Russia and no confirmation of what was it. But could well be an ammunition store.

A house in #Belgorod' also seems to have been targeted but I cannot verify this video.

1/5 Paramedic Yulia "Taira" Payevskaya was helping wounded in #Mariupol when she was captured on 16th March. Two months later she returned to Ukraine. These are some quotes from her interview about her time as a captive👇
#UkraineRussianWar #StandWithUkraine #UkraineUnderAttaсk
2/5 “They treated us horribly. I had nothing all this time. What I had - one pair of underwear, one pair of pants, shoes and some clothes, that's it.
They took the rest from me and didn't allow me any phone connection or medical help”
3/5 “Lately they kept me in a prison in #Donetsk. Lots of our POWs are still there, treated horribly. They didn't even give us soap in the last week. There are 22 women in a 6*3 cell, 10 beds. No information about families and children, too. Their moral condition was awful”

This is my 129th daily thread on #PutinsWar

The killing continues: #Ukraine still under real pressure in the eastern #Donbas region, but signs that the US supplied weapons in particular are beginning to cause real problems for #Russia.

All the news, all day, right here⬇️
#Mykolaiv came under heavy attack in the early hours this morning. We are still awaiting full details.

At least 8 missiles were launched by #Russia's army. Some landed in #Nikolaev according to the mayor
Although it's Day 129 of this thread and the full invasion, please remember this war started over 8 years ago.
In two weeks it will be the 8th anniversary of the MH17 massacre when 300 were murdered by #Russia. Had we acted decisively then, we wouldn't need to spend billions now.

Day 128 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

The illegal, insane, inhumane war which was Putin's choice.

More murder and war crimes today as the little man in the Kremlin orders revenge for the loss if Snake Island

All the news right here in one place, welcome to the daily thread
The revenge from #Russia for the anger at losing #SnakeIsland is an horrendous missile attack on residents in #Odesa/#Odessa region.

17 dead and 31 injured as rescuers work at the site.

Yet another war crime

#RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
#Putin loves symbolism and to leave calling cards.
It's no coincidence that he ordered the murderous strikes on an apartment block and two leisure complexes in #Odesa region with exactly the same delivery as #Kremenchuk - three X-22 missiles fired from Tu-22 strategic bombers.

1/ It is said that those who forget their history are condemned to repeat it. If this is true, then we should always remember the Russian atrocities against civilians. Today I’ll focus on one of the most shocking, the March 16, 2022 Russian airstrike against the Mariupol theatre. Image
2/ #Mariupol was one of the first cities attacked by the Russians at the start of their invasion. Since February 24th, Mariupol residents have been under fire. This caused some to leave, some to stay put at their homes and some to find shelter in designated buildings. Image
3/ One of such places designated as shelters for civilians was the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theatre. It was a multi-storied building at a relatively elevated part of the city. No other structures in close proximity. It made sense to shelter civilians there. Image

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

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 🤷‍♀️

#Azov Regiment continues to be absurdly accused of being "neo-nazi/extremists/far-right".

Journalists in many Western Media do not dig deep enough to understand the context & use myths about Azov without the attempt of fact-checking.

Biletsky isn't a leader of #Azov. He neither commands it nor influences commanders.

He has no formal relation to the regiment, which is part of the #UA National Guard.

Biletsky is the leader of the party "National corpus" but commanded Azov for only several months in 2014.

No, #Azov isn't a military wing of the party "National corpus".

Azov was founded by Biletsky, and he has been benefiting from its image since then. There are personal links between former and current soldiers of Azov, but that doesn’t mean Azov is commanded from outside.

Thread: 18 June 2022: Day 115 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia has renewed its offensive around Izyum to try to encircle Severodonetsk

- Russian declared "humanitarian corridors" are likely to "manipulate the battlespace" as seen in Syria, and civilians trapped in Severodonetsk see them this way.
Interesting thread. The public messaging of #Russia and #China has become more overtly hostile to the #US-led world order; no reason to think the leaderships are not being honest about their views. Notable both see the collapse of the USSR as key.

🚨Russian filtration camps are simply torture centers.

"They used electricity. I almost died. I fell & choked on my dental fillings, which had come out from my teeth"

"A plastic bag was put on her head…her hands were tied. Her mother was on her knees, begging for her daughter"
"They separate families. People are being disappeared. It's pure terror"—#Mariupol🇺🇦 survivor on #Russia's "filtration" camps

"I'll put you in the basement until you rot!"—soldier said to 60yo Viktoria, gun to her head & kicking her for having a Ukrainian flag in her FB profile.
'The Russians said beatings were my re-education'

We've known about torture cellars in #Russia-occupied regions since Putin's 2014 invasion of #Ukraine.

8 years of #warcrimes later, Russian re-education camps—in Europe!—torture people for being Ukrainian…

"My son and husband are lying dead in the yard, and I am singing". The story of Angelika Medvedeva from #Mariupol. Angelika lived in Mariupol for thirty years. In March she lost her husband and the only son Denys, whom she could not even bury. /1
She escaped the 'hell' with her daughter-in-law, who lost 15 kilos, and little granddaughter. And now she is trying to start a new life in Lithuania. She still flinches when she hears the sound of an airplane. /2
"On February 24 as usual, I left for work at 6:30. On the way, I saw AFU troops and equipment. Instead of work, I decided to go to my son, who was at home because of coronavirus. I realized that there could be problems with food, so I bought the essentials." /3

On this day in 2014, #Ukraine's armed forces liberated #Mariupol in #Donetsk region from DPR militants - #Russia's proxies back at the time.

Now Mariupol is ruined by the Russian shelling and bombing, and is under direct Russian occupation.

Exactly a year ago, in June 2021, people of #Mariupol celebrated its Liberation Day: it was a peaceful and happy city
More photos from Mariupol on this day in 2021: a peaceful and happy city now reduced to rubble by Russia's invasion and occupation of 2022.

Thread: 11 June 2022: Day 108 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia is struggling to advance into the south of Severodonetsk city, despite concentrating artillery and air power on it

- Russia has resorted to unguided missiles because it is running short of precision weapons. #Ukraine's air defences holding.
#Russia is firing up to 50,000 artillery rounds per day and doing better at combined arms warfare. #Ukraine is running very low on ammunition for its Soviet-era weapons systems and Western weapons supplies are too slow and meagre to cover the gap.…

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 most difficult situation in #Ukraine is now in Luhansk region, #Severodonetsk and surrounding cities/villages.
Head of the regional administration Serhiy Haidai in interview told me some important things you should know: 🧵
#Severodonetsk holds back a huge pile of Russian troops like #Mariupol held it in Donetsk region. In strategic military terms, the city is nothing, because #Lysychansk is close but much higher.”
“The only problem in #Ukraine is the lack of a long-range artillery. If there was enough artillery and ammunition for it, we would push back the enemy’s artillery, and I can guarantee that our military would clear the city completely in two days.”
