Day 464 of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine starts with another horrendous wait to see if air defence can protect them as cruise missiles head towards them as I type.

This is THE daily thread with all the news of the brutal war in one place, updated all day (and night!)
So much happened yesterday - here's the link to the start of Thursday's thread.

Deaths from #Russia's missiles because shelters were locked
#Crimea bridge falling down?
Big explosions in #Belgorod + #Kursk regions and the rebel Russian units attack again

Almost all of #Ukraine is under threat right now. Sirens sound across the country except for a handful of western regions.

#Cherkasy, just south of #Kyiv is initially thought to be in the firing line of the missiles launched by #Russia from bombers over the Caspian Sea. Image

This is the daily thread with all the news around the conflict in one place.

For yesterday's news, click and scroll here:

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.

Hello and welcome to Friday, which is Day 205 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Here's the daily thread, with all the news that matters.
If you want to flick through yesterday's stories, be my guest:

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine
Generally a quiet night in #Ukraine. The usual shelling from #Russia|ns in the likes of #Nikopol and #Sumy, but even in the latter fewer than 60 grads fired in the region in the last 24 hours, which although it sounds horrendous, is well down on usual daily figures.

There were four slight injuries in #Kharkiv when rockets landed early this morning.

Two adults and minors aged 5 and 17 suffered slight shrapnel wounds in the Slobidskyi district of the city.
There's reported to be a car burning.

I love Germany 🇩🇪. It’s where my family originated from.
But 1/
2/ so so much more needs to be done.
Housing and giving a home abroad when people are fleeing is one thing.
And the country where I am also a citizen of,the UK 🇬🇧,is currently NOT doing enough to help those who are in that desperate situation. My other people (Germans) 2/
3/ caused the biggest World War and suffering across the globe (along with colonization which Germans, British, Spanish, Portuguese etc caused , so I am mindful of what I am saying and not saying here:

Last week Saturday, a friend of mine called me at about 8am in the morning and goes "Ayo howfar, I have a wedding  to attend in Gwarimpa today and my plus 1 cancelled last minute. I honestly don't want to go alone, could you please go with me?".

By 2pm, I was already set and fully clad in my VERY expensive agbada and doused in my VERY, UNNECESSARILY expensive Oud perfume so I can do Abuja big boy.

I'm told my support for Ukraine is "an abuse of the platform you have as a pastor", "Be careful when you publicly take sides", and it is claimed I "compromise your position of a pastor who leads a black majority church when you openly back their side."

Let me be clear...
I have moved in black majority circles for 2/3 of my life. I am staunchly antiracism and have been attacked for standing for racial justice and reconciliation. I empathise, show solidarity, and act. I reject attempts to redirect true narrative with bothsidesism and whataboutism.
Ukraine, like everywhere else in the world, has problems with racism. A number of factors do not help this, and as ever there are different categories from ignorance to discrimination. War, with all its panic and displacement, brings out not only the best but also the worst.

“Guerra” (1964-1966), de Marc Chagall.

O cómo la guerra siempre es una locura, pero hay esperanza.

#HilodeArte ⤵️
Existen infinidad de cuadros de #guerra. Algunos hablan de violencia, otros de devastación, otros de barbarie.

He elegido este porque no quiero ilustrar lo que sucede en #Ucrania (para eso ya hay recursos), sino interpretarlo con este lenguaje de pesadilla distópica.
#Chagall conoció la guerra de cerca. Su vida es apasionante. Solo diré que nació en una familia numerosa de origen judío en una humilde aldea de Bielorrusia, y que tuvo que exiliarse durante la #IIGuerraMundial de París a Nueva York.

BREAKING: A gloomy, overcast day in #Kiev. #Ukraine's capital stands precariously at the edge of #war. #Russian president Vladimir #Putin declared a military offensive earlier today. There are reports of shelling, air strikes and casualties across Ukraine. A developing 🧵. 1/
Speaking to @SkyNewsBreak, a former Vice PM of #Ukraine warned that Putin won't stop at Kyiv. She reported shelling and bombing in Kyiv, where she resides, and appealed for swift, decisive action from the West. Notably, she mentioned the #SWIFT payments system as a tool. 2/
No one can doubt the resolve of the Ukrainian people in the face of adversity. But their #military is no match for #Russia. So cutting them off from the SWIFT payments settlement system could force the Russians into stepping back. But will the #US and #EU take that step? 3/

1/ At this point Republicans are so far outside of the boundaries of actually supporting the United States of America they would cheer Putin on if he invaded Alaska just to make Biden look bad..
2/ so now .. as Russia invades Ukraine.. Republicans at every level of our government and our military are rooting for the guy who is invading our allied nation.
3/ It’s no accident that Trump and tried to coordinate the launch of his social media app with Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on President’s Day. It was a calculated and planned aggression.
