Today we want to touch again on the topic of Ukraine's nuclear security: an analysis of the event by experts

❌ The russ occup continue to hide behind the #ZaporizhiaNPP According to The Insider milit equipment and about 500 russ soldiers are on the territory of the facility
Part of the ammunition is stored inside the power units. In this way, the "safety" of the occupiers' equipment and personnel is achieved. As of the morning of August 6, the 4th power unit of the ZNPP was disconnected from the power system
ZNPP workers are eliminating the consequences of damage to the nitrogen-oxygen station and the joint auxiliary building, which the Russians got into yesterday.

You're in the right place for all the news that matters, both the battlefield and the politics, as #Russia continues to attack #Ukraine

It's Daily🧵#142 of #PutinsWar

If you want to buy me a coffee, the link's in my profile. Thanks to all who have, I'll write personally ASAP.
Overnight #Russia complained of "an attack" by drones inside its borders. Obviously it blamed #Ukraine + published these photos.

Why Ukraine would choose to fire something tiny at a library in a non-descript town in #Belgorod they couldn't explain!

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
#Russia closing in on #Siversk in eastern #Ukraine's #Donbas region according to UK Intel.
However the daily update from London highlights more failings of Putin's war machine.

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 🤷‍♀️

Preserving and sharing #Ukrainian culture is an act of resistance against #RussianColonialism, erasure and genocide.

Today we'll talk about the traditional dance: #hopak !
There are many traditional Ukrainian dances including the hopak, kozachok, metelytsia, kolomyika and hutsulka. 

Hopak, kozachok and metelytsia derive from central #Ukraine, specifically around #Kyiv and #Poltava, while kolomyika and hutsulka are from western Ukraine.
Hopak is a traditional Ukrainian folk dance that originated in the 16th century with the Zaporizhzhian #Kozaky; returning from battle, the hopak was a celebratory social dance to the sounds of #Kobzari and local musicians. 

Reflecting the mood, the music was joyous.

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

#Russian launched Cruise Missiles fly over #Poltava #Ukraine.
Another #Russian cruise missiles flying low over #Kremenchuk #Ukraine. It is believed that these were launched from ships in the Black Sea but that part is not confirmed.
Two new videos of #Russian launched cruise missiles over the #Ukrainian controlled cities of #Poltava and #Kremenchuk (circled in blue) this morning. No info on impacts, damage or casualties yet.

Two months ago today the missiles started flying into all parts of #Ukraine, eight years after the original invasion in Crimea and east Ukraine.

It's Easter Day for Orthodox believers:
Shchaslyvoho Velykodnya🇺🇦

Day 60 of #PutinsWar on its peaceful neighbour, this is the daily🧵
Shamelessly, Putin went to church on Easter night, just hours after learning his troops had murdered 8 civilians in #Odesa as missiles struck residential buildings

Among the victims this 3 month old baby Kira, her mother Valeriia and grandmother Liudmila.
How many more must die?
One story I am keeping tabs on is the reported kidnapping in #Ukraine of a #Bulgaria diplomat.

The news is just being picked up on in the country after the mayor of #Melitopol announced that Russian soldiers had abducted Honorary Consul, Sergei Zhelev…

Good morning! ☕️

Thread on #Ukraine 🇺🇦 / #Russia 🇷🇺 for today
Zelenskiy says about 2,500 to 3,000 Ukrainian troops have been killed in seven weeks of war with #Russia and about 10,000 have been injured - Reuters
Luhansk Oblast Governor says one civilian was killed, three wounded and a gas pipeline was destroyed due to Russian shelling overnight in Severodonetsk and Lysychansk

Day 52 since #Russia decided it would be fun to obliterate its neighbour. They're still trying.

No matter the human cost, Putin doesn't want peace; he never did.

#Ukraine army losses announced, another airport damaged overnight + top trolling from🇺🇦Defence, all in the daily🧵⬇️
I'll start with the news that President @ZelenskyyUa admitted #Ukraine's losses in the war for the first time.
He told CNN that 2,500-3,000 members of his armed forces had lost their lives and about 10,000 more injured.
Russia claimed 36,000 🇺🇦soldiers have been killed.
Intriguing news from #Mariupol where some more #Ukraine fighters have managed to break through a Russian line to hook up with the bulk of the remaining Resistance in the Azovstal complex.

Russia says almost all were killed, but I think over 100 made it: awaiting confirmation.

It's Good Friday - but little good about it as Day 51 of #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine has started with some of the heaviest bombing seen since the start of the war.

All the news coming in this daily thread, updated in real time, so come on in...
⚡️Breaking News⚡️

Huge explosions in #Kyiv region tonight.

The loudest explosions seem to have been in the village of #Vasilkiv which is about 40km (25 miles) south-west of the #Ukraine's capital city.
More from #Kyiv - the blasts could be seen lighting up the entire sky even if the main explosions were many miles away.

Brighter, louder then anything before: eye witnesses report walls shaking - perhaps the biggest warhead unleashed so far on #Ukraine in #Putin's war of choice

Day 48 of #Russia's "military operation" aka genocide of a peaceful neighbouring state.

This is Tuesday's thread with the news and analysis from #Ukraine and beyond.

The big question: have chemical weapons been used in Mariupol' overnight?
Read on...
There is no proof yet, and it's going to be almost impossible to get any, but #Ukraine troops in besieged #Mariupol' claim chemical weapons were dropped by drone onto the Azovstal plant

The first overseas acknowledgment of the allegation has come from UK

Another huge column of Russians spotted close to, and heading towards, the Ukrainian border in Rostov region.

The driver says it's the same column that was in #Kyiv

It's Saturday. Day 45 of #Russia's apparent attempt to wipe #Ukraine and its people from the map.

There is no neutrality in such a conflict. If you pretend to be neutral you are condoning the targeting of civilians, the mass slaughter of women and kids.

Here's the daily🧵⬇️
There were far fewer air raid alarms across #Ukraine overnight.

Two people were injured in one Russian missile attack in #Poltava region.
"Infrastructure" was hit in Mirhorod according to authorities.

#StandWithUkraine️ #StopRussia
#Kharkiv had its usual bombardment last night - this is the usual "night music" there

Russian forces have what amounts to a partial blockade of #Ukraine's second city. More of the terrorist forces are gathering over the border with a renewed attempt to capture the city likely⬇️

The previously mentioned Mikhail Podolyak was quick to use the #Bucha "massacre" to ask for more weapons
It's worth noting that the Rus Army left the town on Mar 30,,,,4 days ago but footage appeared only today

Welcome to the weekend and to Day 38 of the Kremlin war on #Ukraine.

More morale problems for Russia with irradiated troops, heavy losses amid the withdrawal from #Kyiv and still question marks over the bombing of the fuel depot on Russian soil.

All the news, all day, in this🧵
I am still gathering news and data on the Russian attacks on #Ukraine during the night.

#Kharkiv again looks to be worst hit, with endless explosions heard. Some fires burn - this one video submitted. Remember exact locations cannot be revealed, hence the blurring

British intelligence highlights the two recent incidents in #Belgorod, the Russian city close to the border with Ukraine.

Although Ukraine denied the attacks, UK wouldn't highlight this unless it believed they did it, so I bow to the military intel.

Der achte Tag der russischen Invasion steht im Zeichen des totalen Bombenkriegs gegen ukrainische Großstädte. Die schlechte Nachricht: Er wird vermutlich an Intensität zunehmen. Kommt mit, auf einen morgentlichen Spaziergang durch das Zentrum von Charkiw.
In der Nacht haben wir heftige Explosionen in Kiew gesehen. Ich bin zwar kein Experte, aber wenn ich mir dieses Video anschaue, drängt sich mir der Eindruck auf, dass wir darauf den Einschlag einer zweistufigen Vakuumbombe sehen (zwei Blitze):
Laut dem Protokoll III über Brandwaffen der Genfer Konventionen zum Schutze von Zivilisten, verabschiedet am 10. Oktober 1980 ist ihr Einsatz gegen zivile Ziele bzw. in Städten verboten. Man sollte eine entsprechende Ermittlung einleiten.…
