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.

1. Today Russian insurgents attacked from NE of #Kharkiv and engaged and destroyed Russian amor that was lured into an engagement with infantry supported by tanks of the #RussianVolunteerCorps. Image
2. The reports conflict but it appears the two tanks in support of mounted infantry entered Russia west of where the insurgent forces attacked on Thursday when the insurgents attacked Russian FSB forces at a border control point south of #Shebikino.
3. Thursday Russia moved in and insurgents withdrew back into Ukraine but successfully fixed the Russian mechanized forces for today's attack. With the Russian mechanized forces near of #Shebekino, rather than attack the border control point again, the insurgents Image

Piccolo thread domenicale sulla Gagauzia, minuscola regione autonoma tradizionalmente filorussa della Moldova, in queste ore protagonista di vicende turbolente che potrebbero avere ripercussioni europee. 1/
🧵 Image
Nel 1990-1992, con il crollo dell'URSS e le tensioni etno-nazionaliste nei Paesi secessionisti, la Gagauzia riuscì, al contrario della Transnistria, a negoziare una certa autonomia dal governo Chisinau, e a far respingere l'ipotesi di fusione tra Moldova e Romania. 2/
La Gagauzia ha mantenuto un forte rapporto con la Russia: il russo è la lingua più parlata, il rumeno quasi zero. La regione è la più povera della Moldavia e dipende fortemente dai sussidi di Chisinau. La produzione industriale è insignificante. 3/ Image

Liga 🇲🇩mołdawska w tym sezonie była rozgrywana nowym formatem. Są to aktualnie jedne z najdziwniejszych rozgrywek na świecie.

Czemu? W trakcie sezonu niektóre drużyny z ekstraklasy grały z klubami z zaplecza ligi. Mimo tego - nikt nie spadł.

#Moldova Image
W sezonie 22/23 w ekstraklasie mołdawskiej wystąpiło 8️⃣ drużyn. Czyli tyle samo co w poprzednim roku - żadna zmiana.

Kluby zagrały po 2️⃣ mecze formatem "każdy z każdym". W wyniku tego po 14 kolejkach liga została podzielona na grupę mistrzowską oraz grupę spadkową. Image
Do grupy mistrzowskiej weszło 6️⃣ drużyn z najwyższą ilością punktów.

Oznacza to, że z ekstraklasy 🇲🇩mołdawskiej w grupie spadkowej grały tylko 2️⃣ pozostałe zespoły (Dacia i Dinamo-Auto).

Co ciekawe - Dinamo-Auto, które zajęło ostatnie miejsce w lidze, miało na koncie 0 punktów. Image

Another night, another attack on #Kyiv.

It's the 9th multi-missile assault on #Ukraine's capital this month but local officials reort all objects were shot down.

#Darnytskyi, #Dnipro and #Desnyan districts saw falling debris (such as these photos) but no injuries reported: Image

#Ukraine's air defence says #Russia probably used cruise missiles of the X-101/555 type for this morning's attack on '#Kyiv.

Reconaissance drones were spotted over the capital just before the missiles were launched.

Here's a clip of a reporter in Darnytskyi district

#Moldova: The ruling party announced that it will initiate a withdrawal from the CIS because it did not help resolve the Transnistrian conflict or guard against energy pressure from Russia. This contradicts previous statements by the ruling party on the gradual exit from⤵️
certain CIS agreements that may conflict with the future process of accession to the EU. From an economic point of view, trade with Russia has been falling in the last decade. In energy terms, Moldova now has alternative routes.⤵️
The high costs will have been offset by further integration with the EU: loss of the FTA with the CIS and the visa-free regime. These two policies will lose the liberalized character with the CIS region and Russia.⤵️

#Moldova: The second round of the elections in the autonomy of Gagauz has begun. Voters will vote for one of two candidates: Gutul/Shor Party or Uzun/Socislistas. I open a thread to highlight the important aspects. Yesterday's thread explains the nuances of these elections👇⤵️
1) Yesterday, the legal body of autonomy (People's Assembly) accused the central authorities (PAS/Sandu) of illegal interference in the elections and intimidation of the Gagauz electoral body that could hinder the course of the elections.⤵️
In reality, the central authority must ensure the integrity of the electoral process. However, the corrupt behavior of the candidates (that refers to the Shor Party) and the weak dialogue between the central and local authorities have created an environment of mutual mistrust.⤵️

#Moldova: Tomorrow, the runoff of the elections in Russia-leaning Gagauz autonomy will be indicative of whether the pro-Russian forces are capable to produce electoral results, which are also corresponding to the legal exigence: ⤵️
1) Two candidates will compete for the executive seat (bashkan) of a 150,000-population autonomy in the south of Moldova; 2) Both candidates, Gagauz by ethnic origin, are open about their pro-Russian views: ⤵️
Evgenia Gutul (candidate of the US-sanctioned Shor Party) and Ion Uzun (independent backed by the Socialists); 3) To win the elections they will have to double the results of the first round and add more to that. The candidates who won in the past elections accumulated votes ⤵️

Nine years ago, #RussiaIsANaziState attacked Jews of #Odesa.

Simon Wiesenthal became our map. On 24 February, full scale #RussiaIsANaziState invasion began that included targeting Jews, killing Holocaust survivors, destroying #Holocaust memorials and using Russian
Protocols of Zion propaganda again for another #Holocaust. Except Odesa Jews were ready. It will take lifetime #RussiaIsANaziState does not have to understand what we did to stop them. #RussiaIsANaziState is collapsing. We ensured it.

You Rashists are never killing Jews again.

#Moldova: According to the preliminary result of the elections in Gagauzia, the pro-Russian candidates have passed to the second round. They got ~26% each. The first is Ion Uzun, supported by the Socialists and former President Dodon, currently on trial for various reasons,⤵️
including state treason in favor of Russia. The second winner of the first round is Evghenii Gutul, the candidate of the Șor Party. It is very likely that the latter and its leader will be sanctioned by the EU in the coming weeks, following the US sanctions in 2022.
On the upside, the pro-EU ruling party could try to use the results of the Gagauzian election to mobilize its electorate against the pro-Russian vote.

🔵 "Should the West enter the war?"

#1 🔹 So, in my opinion, the "West" needs to make more specific and important decisions to help those people who want to go to Ukraine and help us in this war.
#2 🔹 Create a global program for training such people, not only servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The prospect of full #NATO entry into the war is unrealistic at this stage, I think you all understand this very well.
#3 🔹 But, NATO can help Ukraine in defense operations, provide a military escort of ships in the grain agreement, and, of course, resolve the issue with Transnistria (part of #Moldova 🇲🇩) , I believe that #Romania 🇷🇴 will also be interested in such a "special operation".

It's Friday already and here is Daily Thread No. 422 covering events in #Ukraine and #Russia's illegal war.

Yesterday was fairly quiet, but if you need to catch up on events, click and scroll here⬇️

First, one big update on this story in #Russia which broke last night.

The Kremlin has actually admitted they bombed themselves in #Belgorod! #FriendlyFire on steroids!

They also admit 2 people were injured when #Russia bombed its own city, #Belgorod.

Look at the first photo - a car blown onto the roof of a supermarket!

The Kremlin says "abnormal derailment of aviation ammunition occurred" from a Su-34 VKS aircraft.

The bomb fell off😅🤡 ImageImageImageImage

#Moldova: The fugitive businessman, hiding in Israel, Ilan Shor, was sentenced in absentia to 15 years in prison. Some reflections: 1) An amount of approximately 250 million euros of his property in assets or money can be confiscated;⤵️
2) The Moldovan side expects him to be arrested by Interpol or even to serve his sentence in Israel (highly unlikely); 3) The exponents of the ruling party are using this episode to show that justice is giving results;⤵️
4) Fighting grand corruption is something that the ruling party promised to be elected. This is also part of the preconditions for accession to the EU; 5) The law was modified last year to be able to issue sentences in absentia.⤵️

After law that changed #Moldova language officially to Romanian
The next thing that happened
Is a bill was submitted to the Romanian Parliament demanding the annexation of Ukrainian territories.
Presumably to protect 1mil Romanian population that lives in Ukraine
#Romania would annex the historical territories that belonged to her, respectively, Northern Bukovina, Hertsa region, Budzhak (Cahul, Bolgrad, Izmail), historical Maramures and Snake Island."
"Also, with this law, we want to return cultural identity, traditions, customs and religion to the #Romanian population, whose number is estimated at about 1 million, including mixed families," the author of the legislative initiative states

Un documento strategico interno all’amministrazione presidenziale di Vladimir #Putin. Eccola la prova dell’esistenza di un piano russo di destabilizzazione della #Moldova.
A svelarlo un’inchiesta che ha visto la collaborazione fra diverse testate internazionali – da Yahoo News USA al #Kyiv Independent, passando per Süddeutsche Zeitung e Delfi #Estonia – e dalla quale emerge in maniera incontrovertibile il disegno a lungo termine del Cremlino
per allungare i propri artigli sullo Stato più povero d’Europa.
Secondo la fonte che l’ha divulgata, la strategia per la Moldova è stata redatta nell’autunno del 2021, nello stesso periodo in cui è stata elaborato il piano di “annessione” della #Bielorussia, quello in base al

Russland hat offenbar einen genauen Plan für #Moldau. Das zeigt ein brisantes Dokument, das @SZ_Investigativ, @WDRInvestigativ, @NDRrecherche mit internationalen Partnern vorliegt. #Moldau soll sich demnach vom Westen lossagen – zugunsten Russlands. Ein Thread zu dieser Recherche
Russlands Präsidialverwaltung soll schon vor Kriegsbeginn, im Sommer 2021, in dem Papier konkret festgehalten haben, wie man pro-russische Strömungen fördern und gleichzeitig eine West-Orientierung des Landes verhindern will. #Moldau #Moldova
Auf fünf Seiten fasst der mutmaßliche Strategie-Plan die Ziele Russlands im politischen, militärischen und Sicherheitsbereich, im Handels- und Wirtschaftsbereich sowie im gesellschaftlichen Bereich in Moldau zusammen. #Moldau #Moldova
