Welcome along to my daily thread with everything you need to know about #Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine.

Wednesday is Day 427.
If you missed y'day's news, no fear, the link is here!

And what a day with loads of stories, particularly #RussiaOnFire

26 April is also the anniversary of the #Chornobyl #Chernobyl disaster in #Ukraine.

The repressive Soviet occupiers of the time refused to admit a problem and even forced kids in #Kyiv on to the streets a few days later for the MayDay parade.

Very little to report today on #Russia's losses of the last 24 hours (as estimated by #Ukraine)

Broadly in line with recent days.

This is how I ended yesterday's thread.

There is a lot of speculation as to who the man is, it seems he may originally be from #Donetsk.
However his sister has identified him and asks not to name him yet - the least we can do is respect that.

Day 365 of #Russia's illegal war. A momentous day.
#Putin chose to invade #Ukraine after promising the world he would do no such thing.

As we reach the end of a year of fighting, don't forget this event I'll be on at 18:30 GMT this evening:…
It's not quite the anniversary of #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine - that is tomorrow, at 04:00 local time.

Guys, we go again! No rest on the frontline for the brave warriors defending #Ukraine, so the least I can do is report on it and the least you can do is read and spread the news, ensure there is NO war fatigue.

Welcome to Saturday's news thread, Day 304 of #Russia's illegal war:
So much happened yesterday, including numerous fires in Russia, in Moscow in particular.

Then there was a likely assassination in Melitopol and reported drone attacks on Crimea.

Missed something? No problem... click and scroll yesterday's thread:

Last night @RishiSunak published this festive greeting for the people of #Ukraine.

Impressive! Has the British PM has been using the @JohnLewisRetail creative team?

#Ukraine: Today's updates from #UkraineWar: 1. Last night in the USA President Zelensky delivered a powerful speech in English to the US Congress, receiving a standing ovation on entry and chants of "Slava Ukraini! #tweet100
#Ukraine: 2. As Congress members chanted "Slava Ukraini!, Zelensky replied with "Geroyam Slava" and struggled to hold back tears. Earlier President Biden told Zelensky, "It's an honour to be by your side". Image
#Ukraine: 3. Cleverly, Zelensky said UA had never asked Americans to fight instead of them & that Ukrainians could "perfectly operate American tanks & planes". "Your money is not charity, it's an investment in global security & democracy". #tweet100

Thursday. Day 302 of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine begins where it's still Wednesday evening, with President Zelenskyy of #Ukraine about to address Congress in Washington DC.

He needs Congress to continue to approve US aid for the war.
A busy news day yesterday - if you missed anything, catch up by clicking and scrolling down here:


While we wait for #Zelenskyy's speech on Capitol Hill to start, I see Liz Cheney sitting with Democrats!

Meanwhile in #Ukraine, during an air raid warning in #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) explosions are reported in the region - not in the city itself.
However it may be air defence.

Interesting, especially since more seem to self activating…

#Vladimir #Murmansk Asked for mobilization? Receive and sign. 👌 September 20 at night (they didn’t wait for the video message from You-Know-Who) - Vladimir region, Sudogodsky district, 4 wagons with crushed stone. 👌 September 21 - passenger train, Murmansk region, 5 cars left,
no injuries. Serious damage to the road and delays in this section. With the Vladimir region, everything is clear, in Murmansk it is not us, and not those whom we know about. You remember, we do not lower passenger trains. Either new participants with more radical convictions

It's Day 203 of the war. #Russia's inhuman, unprovoked, not to mention illegal war in #Ukraine.

The UN is powerless, some would say pointless. It's purely up to Ukraine and its' supporters to #StopPutin

Live updates in this 🧵, or catch up on y'day here

Big attack on the southern #Ukraine city of #Mykolaiv overnight.

The mayor has so far only said some private houses were hit. No news on casualties yet.

#Nikolaev #RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
Once again we've seen far fewer attacks than "normal" from #Russia in the last 12 hours. In fact it's newsworthy that there was not a single rocket fired on #Kharkiv overnight.

Die #Ostsee (englisch: #BalticSea) hat als Meer, aus Sicht des Militärs, ganz andere und spezielle Eigenschaften als z.B. die Nordsee oder der Atlantik.
Hier geht es um die geographisch relevanten Eigenschaften der Ostsee, welche ich grob eingeteilt darstelle. 1/x
Dieses dient der Verdeutlichung der verschiedenen Bereiche und ist geographisch teilweise inkorrekt.
Die Ostsee ist insgesamt ein sehr flaches Meer mit einer maximalen Wassertiefe von ca. 450 Metern und einer durchschnittlichen Tiefe von ca. 50 Meter.
Es gibt viele Flachwasserbereiche und der Salzgehalt ist in großen Teilen sehr niedrig, teilweise aber mit abrupten Änderungen.
Die Ostsee ist in 4 Bereiche zu unterteilen:
1. #Kattegat (lila)
2. Zentrale Ostsee (grün)
3. Bottnischer Meerbusen (orange)

Firstly, you guys got me to 20,000 followers, so thank you all so much💙💛

This week I have a lot of commentary work, but will try to be as quick as ever with updates throughout.
News breaking right now is another night-time attack on #Kharkiv

There have been multiple explosions in the city so far and more rockets on the way according to tracking.

The missiles have landed near the centre according to early reports

Day 131 of #Russia's unprovoked war on #Ukraine.
In total though it's 8 years, 4 months - more than twice as long as WW1 and 2 years longer than WWII.

All the news, events and analysis as it happens, updated in real time right here in the daily thread, so scroll below!
Yesterday saw many civilian lives lost as Russia unleashed a barrage of missiles on eastern regions.

6 died in #Sloviansk, civilian buildings struck in #Kramatorsk and, as it only just made Sunday's thread, a repost of 🇷🇺 hitting a hospital in #Sumy

Three days ago I broke the news about @NHLFlyers losing a player - Ivan Fedotov arrested as he attempted to go to the States.

I can now confirm the Finnish born ice hockey star is in Severomorsk, #Murmansk to start his military service on Novaya Zemlya

1/8. It’s time for some careful diplomacy by Europe/the West (& Japan) with individual #Oblasts, #Republics & #Krais in Russia. Explanation below:
2/8. Unless #Putin is overthrown, Russia is a mess financially & militarily & will be unable to support them anyway. With its latest actions & nuclear threats, Russia needs some pairing down, as it’s become a reckless, marauding danger to the entire planet & now’s the time.
3/8. Diplomacy would include lifting sanctions in these areas to encourage breakaway from Russian rule & future protection from Russia which will be much smaller and weaker.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).
