Day 466 of the daily thread covering the #UkraineRussianWar begins here.

All the news and analysis, throughout the day and night - looks like little sleep again tonight as it's believed #Russia has fired cruise missiles, currently an hour away from hitting #Ukraine.

The situation is still developing. We hope the missile launch was a fake, or dummy warheads to "draw out" #Ukraine's air defence.

For all yesterday's news, including the terrible attack on #Dnipro, click and scroll here:

Also hearing now that cruise-missile laden ships are in the launch zone in the Black Sea. This is not uncommon, but #Russia's current tactic of a mixed missile attack increases the likelihood of ships being involved.

Estimated time of arrival of rockets: 03:10 Kyiv time.

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

"Everything according to plan"
#Russia's 3-day plan to take #Kyiv and control all of #Ukraine a week after that, has reached Day 400

Also, I'm proud to have single-handedly kept up to date with all the news with daily threads each and every day. So let's start Thursday's 🧵
Today's thread comes from #Montenegro after a travel day yesterday. Six years ago #Russia's attempted coup here failed.

Still a touch of snow on the mountains as another European Teqball Tour event gets underway here. More about that tomorrow on Finals Day.
Wednesday was pretty quiet in terms of the war.
But if you need to recap on yesterday, here's the usual link:

Happy Spring! Welcome to March.
Wednesday is day 371 of the war in #Ukraine.

#Russia's illegal onslaught continues, especially on the eastern front.

All the news in one handy thread.
Catch up on yesterday's developments here:

#Russia attacked #Ukraine with another small wave of drones last night.

There are no signs of damage, although Ukraine reports only shooting down five of the UAVs, all hit by air defence in #Poltava region.

Meanwhile reports of explosions in occupied #Crimea.

There may have been two separate attacks on #Russia's invaders with chat sites full of messages asking what the loud bangs were.

No confirmation, but this is a good round up of what's known:…

Hello again. It's Day 369 of the war. #Russia's 10-day war on #Ukraine that is.

Hope your week starts well. It wasn't a great start for Ukrainians with a drone attack as the new week began, but as I write no feared cruise missile attack although there is a warning as I type...
Sunday proved to be quite a newsworthy day concerning #Ukraine, meaning more work for me, including a 4 page essay for Elon Musk - still no reply yet!

To see what you missed, take a scroll back through daily thread number 368 right here:

Much lower losses again for #Russia in the figures published daily by #Ukraine.

Is it the weekend lag or a case of fewer suicidal waves of Russkiy lemmings trying to take #Bakhmut, #Vuhledar et al?

Looks pretty certain now to hit 150k dead soldiers on the first day of spring. Image

Day 368 of Europe's war and welcome to Sunday's daily thread with all the information you need in one handy🧵

It's still fairly quiet in most of #Ukraine as #Russia continues its illegal war.

Here's the link if you want to catch up on yesterday's events

The death of another American soldier has been confirmed in #Ukraine.

28-year-old Afghanistan veteran Andrew Peters from #Wisconsin died 10 days ago while helping Ukraine defend its territory. Andrew was part of the International Defence Legion.
📷Wisconson Public Radio
Each day #Ukraine releases figures for the numbers of Russian soldiers killed and equipment destroyed.

Invariably it's lower at weekends. So today's numbers (covering Saturday's losses) are lower across the board. I'm wondering if a couple of units don't report at weekends?

It's Thursday and it's Day 358 of #Russia's illegal war on its peaceful neighbour and another daily thread

Yet again the day started violently for many regions of #Ukraine with overnight missile attacks targeting critical civilian infrastructure, which is itself a war crime...
Apologies for the late start today, I've had meetings from first thing, which overran a little

First, here the link for yesterday's thread as I know a few of you like to read back in one go and others like to catch up with that they missed in the evening:
So to the overnight attack by #Russia with Cruise missiles and more.

#Ukraine says it shot down 16 out of 32 missiles. Twelve Kh-22 hypersonic missiles cannot be intercepted with current defences.

It's likely #Russia is using a high % of Kh-22 stocks before Patriot is in place

Hello and welcome to the daily thread about #Ukraine and its defence against #Russia's illegal invasion.

This is Day 352 since last February's all out attack, but now very nearly 9 years since the original invasion. The more the west did nothing, the bolder Putin became:

It was particularly telling when a Russian protest group managed to find out #Russia, once cameras has gone, stole back fur coats they'd given to grieving relatives for their losses:
Last night there was a drone wave sent in to Ukraine territory and as I wrote at the time it could well be the precursor to another full missile attack.

That does seem to be happening now with launches detected and mass devastation and death again a possbility for the innocent

Today it's Day 336 of #Russia's full invasion and war on #Ukraine.

It's also a special day for many people.
Burns' Night in #Scotland
St Dwynwen's Day for lovers in #Wales
While it's also the 45th birthday of @ZelenskyyUa - mnogo lita Mr President!

Here's the daily thread
@ZelenskyyUa It should also be a very special day for #Ukraine's military leaders with confirmation coming from #Germany and the #USA that the country's top fighting tanks are finally going to be given to the country.

The news leaked out y'day. Here's Tuesday's thread
It's also been a very pleasant start to the day for me, to see two more donations to my "coffee fund" this morning.

Eric and Renée (who has been super generous), I give you my sincerest thank yous.

And thanks to everyone who writes messages of support or kind words.

Currently there is an air raid warning over 5 regions of #Ukraine with 7 of #Russia's Tu-95 jets in flight and one Tu-22.

#Kyiv #Sumy #Poltava #Chernihiv and #Cherkasy oblasts all considered at risk right now.

There have already been 5-6 explosions reported in the capital.
A leisurely morning in #Kyiv was ruined with sounds like this and people scuttling unexpectedly for shelters - the alarm raised AFTER the first blasts.

Mayor @Vitaliy_Klychko confirms a number of explosions - an attack on infrastructure.

Welcome to 2023, welcome to day 312 of the #RussiaUkraineWar.

Different year, same story as #Russia's terrorism continued right through the new year, but lucky for you my daily threads continue to document the terror and war crimes.

It's already been a terrible start to the day
So much happened in the last hour of 2022 as attacks intensify over #Kyiv. Earlier there was another massive missile attack.

If you missed anything, check out yesterday's thread right here:

#StopRussia #SaveUkraine

Proud of my country, making a special point of honouring and supporting the people of #Ukraine in the New Year fireworks and light show in #London.

Early in 2022 @BorisJohnson warned Europe could see the biggest war in Europe since 1945 and he was right.

Day 309 of the war. #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.
Thanks for reading yet another daily thread

Thursday started with explosions for many in #Kyiv with a nationwide air alert. City leaders in the capital say it's air defence working.

Here's y'day link
With enemy aircraft moving, this alert for many regions including #Kyiv has already lasted over 2 hours.

More ships appeared in the Black Sea armed with missiles too, according to Gov of #Mykolaiv (RU: #Nikolaev) Vitaliy Kim

There has still been the regular shelling during the night in #Ukraine

Two villages near #Zaporizhzhia were hit by #Russia's artillery. Also struck of course was #Nikopol, which I don't always mention in these threads but continues to be targeted daily.

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.

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine

First a story causing concern in #Ukraine where rumours abound that President #Zelenskyy's entourage is so worried by the popularity of the Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhny, they want to replace him.

Original report paywalled @TheEconomist…
#Bakhmut holds...

But it must be among the most scary places on Earth right now.

Day 273 of #Putin's illegal war and here's the daily news thread.

Today, Wednesday, marks the completion of 9 months since #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine

This thread's updated live throughout the day. To check what you missed yesterday, click here:

#Ukraine tonight has accused #Russia of kidnapping mayors of various mayors in #Kherson oblast.

The Interior Ministry says invaders abducted the leaders of several communities in the region and took them to the left bank of the Dnipro when they retreated.

They remain missing
It's potentially a huge day for the #EU.
The Union is today scheduled to set its price limit for #Russia's fuel.

Two questions - can they set it at a level which can hold and damage the Kremlin, and can they get all members to agree to it.

Le 15 novembre 2022, la #Russie a envoyé une centaine de missiles sur l'#Ukraine. Le même jour, l'#Ukraine a bombardé la région russe de #Belgorod. Une explosion est survenue dans le village de #Przewodów, en Pologne, à environ 8 km de la frontière ukrainienne.

Day 265 of #Russia's illegal war.

For all the news this Tuesday keep coming back to this thread with all the important news, updated 'live'.

All of #Ukraine currently waiting to hear news from the left bank in #Kherson region.

Here's Monday's thread:
Last night rumours swept #Ukraine that the army had liberated multiple settlements on the south/east bank in #Kherson, fanned by Govt officials commenting on #Oleshky.

But so far they remain just rumours with no hard evidence.
Here's the British Intel update which explains why #Henichesk was chosen by #Russia as its 'capital' of #Kherson, having lost the real regional centre last week.

We reach Day 260 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine. They continue to go backwards after Wednesday's announcement that Putin's troops are evacuating #Kherson region west of the river.

This is the daily thread for Thursday. Catch up on the previous 24 hrs here:

So, #Russia confirmed it is leaving #Kherson city and the rest of the right bank in the region.

But #Ukraine rightly urges caution.

Not all invaders have left yet; fighting continues.

Even after all Russians leave, it will take time and manpower to de-mine and make it safe

#Russia has saved a lot of its troops and can move some to the #Donbas to strengthen attacks there

#Kherson will likely be heavily shelled from across the river

It will be great to liberate the only regional capital occupied since February, but it gets tougher now.

The fight for sovereignty and freedom continues.

All the news & analysis in one place.
ICYMI, Monday's stories are here:
I'll start with a couple of curious updates from stories which broke yesterday...

First the case of one of #Russia's richest men who gave up his citizenship saying he couldn't be a part of a fascist country.

But Oleg Tinkov, who now lives in London, has since deleted this post
Next I am concerned about what's happening to the ships which left #Ukraine's ports yesterday despite #Russia suspending its agreement in grain export.

A flotilla of grain-laden vessels seem to have all turned off transponders, either continuing incognito or anchored off 🇺🇦coast

A new week begins and a bit of a landmark day in #Russia's war as we reach Day 250.

This is the start of the 250th daily thread, with accurate news from #Ukraine. It's still strangely quiet so far, but if you missed yesterday's updates, here's the link:

#Russia's police have opened two cases against Sergey Mamontov for this horrific incident.

The regional branch of the "United Russia" party has said he will be expelled.

#Ukraine's state energy company tells civilians there will be no quick end to power cuts.

Indeed, residents are warned rationing will continue throughout winter and may get worse if #Russia's strikes continue.
People are urged to always have essentials/power banks etc charged.
