Some thoughts about the military perspective about what just happened in #Izyum / #Kharkov.
First let's talk about Kharkov in general. This region was very poorly defended by #Ukraine|ians the last few months. #Russia took the initiative and started a pinning operation.
This was executed with very few troops as well, because more wasn't needed for the degree of resistance in this place. The goal of a pinning and holding operation is, to draw #Ukraine|ian troops away from other important frontline section, just to defend this "unimportant"
area. This was very successful. A nice side effect of this pinning operation was, that #Russia gained ever more ground around #Kharkov city itself, which is a good starting point for future offensive operations. Since #Ukraine was forced to split its forces between Kharkov

Day 191 of #Russia's full invasion of its peaceful neighbour.

But #Ukraine wouldn't lie down and the fightback is underway.

All the news and analysis in one handy thread ⬇️

Here's the link for yesterday's 🧵in case you missed anything:

First confirmation of one late story last night.

Many collaborators, police and even FSB reported dead in #Kherson when an explosion hit a police school still widely used by the occupiers.

This is the site this morning

Following the latest death of a prominent Russian critic of the war, thereve been a lot of memes and jokes.

This one cuts deep on different levels and Defence Minister Shoigu must really be worried

❗ The village of #Pesky remains under the control of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine️, despite the declarations of the Russian troops about its capture. This was reported by the speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces, Sergey Cherevaty
In addition to #Pesky, there are several more hot spots in the Donetsk region. In particular, the invaders are trying to storm Krasnogorovka, fighting continues near Pervomaisky, and on August 13, Russian troops again tried to go on the offensive against #Maryinka.

I hope you get the chance for a peaceful and relaxing Sunday. That's something many thousands in #Ukraine haven't had for almost 6 months.

It's Day 172 of #Russia's invasion and here's the daily thread with all the news and analysis you need, updated throughout the day⬇️
Quite a bit of late action on yesterday's thread. You can scroll through yesterday's thread here if you need a catch up:

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia

Potentially good news from @amnesty

The organisation's pledged to have its' "#Ukraine report" examined by independent experts.

Amnesty International says it "wants to understand what exactly went wrong" according to Deutsche Welle.

Appointing @AgnesCallamard perhaps?

🇺🇦🇷🇺WAR: Day 171 - my daily thread.

#Russia's war crimes continue; none was possible without the first - Putin's decision to invade a peaceful neighbour.

A lot of late news from #Ukraine in yesterday's thread - if you missed it, click and scroll⬇️

Britain's daily update points out the vulnerability of Russia's invaders west of the Dnipro river in occupied #Kherson region.

In fact 5 bridges in the region are now unusable despite frantic ongoing repair efforts.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Ukraine's South Division stated in its morning update the bridge near the Kakhovka Hydroelectric plant was the latest hit.
Some locals report this bridge is still being used but it's probably not safe for heavy vehicles.
There are more explosions reported now in #Lyubimivka

This is the start of the daily thread documenting #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine.

It's Day 164 if you're counting (me too!)
All the news in one place, check back throughout the day.

DMs open for tips, all appreciated, as are any coffees donated (see my profile)😉
We ended yesterday wondering if the Dar'ivky Bridge just outside occupied #Kherson had been hit.

No update on that yet, but #Ukraine has claimed hits on 6 ammo dumps, numerous weapons and command posts in #Chornobaivka #Oleshki #Beryslav #Bruskinskyi and Kherson city itself.
#Ukraine is already hitting #Russia's stores again this morning.

This video from occupied #Makiivka (RU #Makeevka) - a lot of explosions followed the first strike, so looks likely to be an another ammunition dump.

Hello, welcome to Friday and to Day 163 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

Critical days after The Kremlin's tactic of carpet bombing the front line, then throwing 1000s of cannon fodder into the "grey zone" seems to be pushing Ukraine back in #Donetsk.

All the news, all day, here⬇️
The @TheStudyofWar last night reported #Ukraine "is likely seizing the strategic initiative and forcing #Russia to reallocate forces" due to threats in #Kherson.

However their maps don't include the news about #Avdiivka and #Bakhmut which I brought you in yesterday's thread
Also last night I showed the scenes in #Nikopol - and I'll tweet a new video in the next post

UK's MoD's update highlights the sheer recklessness of #Russia firing on Nikopol from a nuclear power plant in #Enerhodar, storing weapons there knowing #Ukraine can't risk firing there

Day 162 of #Russia's war with a country which has never invaded, or fired upon, another country once.

#Ukraine continues its proud defence, but masses of new cannon fodder are arriving on the fronts to help #Russia pressure new fronts.

All the news, all day in one 🧵, read on!
First to the murder of #Ukraine's #Azovstal defenders in the missile strike on the #Olenivka prison.

The @ICRC put out a statement saying they could not guarantee the safety of the Ukrainians despite negotiating their release from #Mariupol'…
The Red Cross statement says they had no access to prisoners in #Olenivka before the strike. This contradicts Russian propaganda channels which claimed they visited 4 days before.

US Intel concurs with my assessment Russia is delaying UN/ICRC visits to plant evidence.

Wednesday 3 August. Day 161 of #Russia's full scale invasion of peaceful #Ukraine

Welcome to my daily thread, with all the news from, and affecting the war. DMs open for tips (anonymous if preferred)

Thx to those who already supported me.
Still big problems for #Russia in the occupied south of #Ukraine. British Intel today highlighting the transport links which will hinder their attempts to fend off a Ukraine assault in #Kherson or counter attack here towards #Mykolaiv.
The #Ukraine land assault in #Kherson will come, but #Russia adding 1000s of extra (untrained) conscripts + Wagner mercenaries to the warzone, complicates matters

The invaders now threaten #Zaporizhzhia having failed to take all of #Donetsk

So for now 🇺🇦continues to hit 🇷🇺bases
