#Odesa #Opera opened tonight for the first time since the Russian full-scale invasion on 24 February. It was the most moving performance I have ever been to. Got lucky, no air raid. #SlavaUkraine 🇺🇦
Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, Ukrainian opera. I will write about the Gala concert for the Ukrainian Army and the theater with bombshells but really want to share a few snippets now.
Half-empty theatre which never happens in Odesa. People standing up for the national anthem. Whispering along.

Forte popolo di un Paese indistruttibile!

Oggi è il 110° giorno della nostra difesa. E quando si dice questo - il 110° giorno - ci si rende conto del grande cammino che abbiamo percorso. Il nemico è stato cacciato dalle regioni di Zhytomyr, Kyiv, Chernihiv e Sumy.
Gran parte della regione di Kharkiv è stata liberata. In totale, sono stati liberati più di mille villaggi.
L'invasione degli occupanti nel sud dell'Ucraina è stata fermata.
Sì, vogliono ancora distruggere Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhia e le città della regione di Dnipropetrovsk.
Hanno ancora abbastanza forza per sparare dall'artiglieria a Zelenodolsk e Hulyaipole. #Odesa rimane un obiettivo per la flotta russa...Ma decine di tentativi di attacco dell'esercito russo sono già stati sventati proprio lì nel sud. E grazie alla controffensiva, alcune

#Putin's decision to facilitate the issuance of Russian passports in #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of #Ukraine isn't spontaneous. This decision has been on the table for at least 2 months and has been transformed & postponed given the objective situation on the front
Moreover, #Putin's plans for the annexation of several regions of #Ukraine to #Russia are a resolved matter and these plans are constantly discussed at closed-door meetings in various formats with the participation of the President
Now the main goal #Putin has set for the military is to reach the admin borders of #Donetsk & #Luhansk regions and, if possible, #Kherson & #Zaporizhzhya regions of Ukraine

No checkpoints, no trenches: General Marchenko spoke about the first days of the defense of #Mykolayiv. According to the major general, from the beginning of the invasion, panic reigned in the city, people expected that the #Russians will take the city just as they took #Kherson.
However, the military managed to organize the defenses. According to the military, there was panic in #Mykolaiv, and there was no interaction between the authorities. On February 25th, Marchenko was driving down the street and saw a resident of the house taking off the #Ukrainian
flag. When the military asked him why he was doing this, he replied: "That's it, #Kherson fell, everyone understands, there are many of them, there are few of us, we are next, we must prepare." To this, the general said that #Mykolaiv would resist.

🧵We are a group of volunteers exploring existing and non-conventional options for moving #Ukrainian #grains, #wheat and #agricultural products into the #European #Railway Network for distribution to EU #Export terminals, primarily, but not exclusively on the #Danube Waterway.
Why, what's stopping this?

Similar to @Apple, @Microsoft or @Android Operating Systems, #Ukraine's and #Europe's #trains, #locomotives & #wagons operate on physically different track widths.

While having similar functionalities, they don't "play well with each other".
Specifically, a Ukrainian train cannot travel on a European railway (track) and European trains cannot travel on Ukrainian railways.

The width, called "Gauge", between rails is different. Ukrainian is 1520mm wide, while European is 1435mm.

The 87th daily 🧵 of the #Russia-#Ukraine war.

Russia's illegal invasion had a big boost in the last 72 hours.
Finally they claimed a 2nd big city in #Mariupol' while advances in the Donbas mean there's a real chance they can cut off 1000s of #Ukraine troops in #Luhansk region
But British intelligence is that #Russia is running out of drones.

While both sides are suffering big losses of unmanned aircraft, #Ukraine is able to replace but Russians are struggling

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Finland's gas supply from #Russia has today been cut off fur refusing to pay in Rubles.

However it's reported #Germany and #Italy approve rouble accounts for Russian gas payments.

Germany and Italy told companies they could open rouble accounts to “without breaching” sanctions

Good morning! Day 86 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

This is the daily thread, with news and analysis updated throughout the day.

Things reaching boiling point in the #Donbas with danger for both sides and mass destruction once again.
Most British media this morning leading with news of @ZelenskyyUa's comments that east #Ukraine has been destroyed by #Russia

An update this this story for starters, where unfortunately the death toll is now 12 in #Severodonetsk alone, 50 houses destroyed
While the frontline in the east is described as "frozen" by some, it's not true. Not much movement with Ukraine generally holding strong

But there is one area of concern with a few thousand #Ukraine troops at risk of being surrounded as Russia opened up a spur in #Luhansk region

Occupied #Melitopol was visited by none other than Marat #Khusnullin - Deputy Prime Minister of #Russia. He arrived at #Melitopol after visiting #Kherson and #Enerhodar. In Enerhodar, he liked our nuclear power plant so much that he is ready to start appropriating our energy.
In #Kherson he commented on the high quality of our tomato paste and about all that #Ukrainian grain they can steal. He was accompanied by two local traitors and collaborators we've mentioned before - E. Balytsky and G. Danylchenko, who are more than happy to assist #Russia in
plundering #Ukraine's resources.

Reminder - during WW2, #Nazi collaborators in #Ukraine would be often found dead with grain stuffed in their throats.

Glory to #Ukraine ✊🏻🇺🇦🏴‍☠️

#MaiaSandu, presidente della #Moldova, intervenendo alla plenaria dell'Europarlamento ha chiesto il ritiro delle truppe russe dalla #Transnistria.
Il suo è stato un discorso molto importante: ecco i passaggi cruciali.👇
Rivolgendosi alla presidente #Metsola, #MaiaSandu ha detto che la #Moldova in 🇪🇺 si sente "in famiglia". Poi ha ringraziato per il sostegno "fondamentale per mantenere la Moldova sul suo cammino democratico e sorreggere le aspirazioni del nostro popolo a vivere in pace".
#MaiaSandu ha usato parole dure nei confronti della #Russia, sostenendo che la guerra contro l'#Ucraina "ci fa tornare indietro di un secolo nella storia".
Ha anche raccontato di aver sentito dal suo ufficio, la mattina del 24 febbraio, le bombe che colpivano #Odesa.

Segnali di un cambio di tattica imminente da parte di Vladimir #Putin arrivano dal Donbass.
I russi avrebbero infatti iniziato a scavare trincee, ad innalzare barriere in cemento armato. Indizi della volontà di assumere una postura di natura difensiva su territorio ucraino.
Mossa volta a consentire la messa al riparo delle conquiste territoriali sin qui operate nel #Luhansk. Forse barlume di lucidità proveniente dal Cremlino, presa d'atto dell'inefficacia delle proprie truppe sul terreno di battaglia.
Per l'ISW, i 🇷🇺 vedono come prioritaria la battaglia di #Severodonetsk. Nome che spezzato - Seversky Donets - evoca terribili incubi a Mosca, almeno ai sopravvissuti ad una delle batoste più pesanti inflitte dall'esercito 🇺🇦 nel tentativo di attraversare l'omonimo fiume.

1/ Ukrainian TVD, Day 77-79. The past 72 hrs has seen the Ukrainian military press the advantages made by their limited Kharkiv counteroffensive to push Russian forces into the Belgorod Oblast. Russian offensive action along the Siverskyi Donets Line has achieved little success. Image
2/ Weather. Forecast for the next 10 days will see increased rainstorms & cloud cover, severely degrading air & artillery strikes and ground assaults. Wind speed and direction will favor Ukrainian artillery strikes, however. Rainfall will continue to restrict movement to roads. Image
3/ Kharkiv OD. Russian forces have been thoroughly defeated north of Kharkiv. Russia has been conducting a fighting withdrawal since the start of the Ukrainian counteroffensive rather than trying to establishing a new defensive line. #UkraineRussianWar #Kharkiv Image

The first female navigator of @UA_NAVY
Eugenia Bakay: "Now you just need to decide - are you ready to defend your country or not".
Only in March she graduated from #Odesa Maritime Academy, where she mastered the specialty "Navigation". And today Eugenia, breaking all stereotypes, has become an indispensable part of the crew of a warship.
"Of course, you can't call my profession easy. You have a huge responsibility, you have a lot to do and constantly learn something. It should be understood that the life of all crew members may depend on the negligence, laziness and irresponsibility of one sailor on board.

I suppose that you remember a #SnakeIsland near which a #Russian warship "Moskva" was sent to went f*ck itself.


#Ukraine #UkraineWar
That island was important for #Russia due to controlling it allows Russia to cut access to #Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea and is critical for #Russian landing operations in the #Odesa region(South of #Ukraine).

Guess What?

#Ukraine completely cleaned that island from #Russian troops.

We already destroyed a bunch of Russian forces and equipment there: starting with Russian warships, anti-aircraft weapons, and ending with a Russian helicopter with paratroopers 🔥
