🇷🇺🇺🇦 Night strikes of the RF Armed Forces on objects in Zaporozhye

Tonight, the Russian Armed Forces launched blows with Geran-2 kamikaze drones on targets in the territories controlled by the Kyiv regime. Most explosions took place in Zaporozhye. Image
One of the goals was the territory of the Zaporozhye titanium and magnesium plant. On satellite images, the object looks abandoned and is quite suitable for the placement of equipment or other military equipment.
Also, kamikaze drones flew over the Zaporozhognepor plant, where the Ukrainian Armed Forces ammunition depot was supposedly located. Another object hit was the Two Moons Hotel. According to preliminary data, the personnel of the enemy were stationed there.

Despite the sanctions, #Russia continues to purchase them through third countries and fake companies.
The majority of the foreign electronic components used by Russia for the production of missiles is produced in the USA - 81%, Switzerland - 8%, Germany - 3.5% and Japan - 3.5%.
In particular, components from such companies as STMicroelectronics (Switzerland), Vicor (USA), XILINX (USA), Intel Corporation (USA), Texas Instruments (USA), ZILOG (USA), Maxim Integrated (USA) and Cypress Semiconductor (USA) are used.

🧵It appears that as of now we have no consensus in @NATO to bring #Ukraine into the alliance, with the conversation having shifted to debating a formula that would provide assurances and support to Ukraine short of membership. These half measures will help, but not enough. 1/8
I won’t go into those proposals, as in my view none offers a clear path forward that Ukraine needs to rebuild after the war. Moscow banks that that the West will not stand up for what it preaches, and that it will push #Ukraine to a settlement that will cede UKR territory. 2/8
We continue to re-debate why #Russia invaded #Ukraine instead of focusing on how to defeat the invasion. And most of all, while govt documents and analytical pieces talk of a new era of great power competition, I have yet to see a clear articulation of what victory look like.3/8

So no surprise that recent nights of 3-6 drones suddenly became this:

32 Iranian attack drones shot down in the last 24 hours by #Ukraine. But it two managed to get through defences.

Future of Russian Oil: 5 Key Trends

#Russia's oil industry transitions from chaos to relative stability in 2023, with India emerging as the largest seaborne buyer. Let's explore the industry's outlook for the next 2-3 years, from refinery upgrades to a shadow tanker fleet.👇 Image
Russia's refinery upgrades increase gasoline production

Despite overall throughputs not reaching pre-sanction levels, there's a hidden growth story. Jan-April 2023 saw record-high monthly #gasoline production. Dec 2022-Feb 2023 saw the highest-ever production rate of 124 kt/day.
Operational setbacks for refinery upgrades

Nizhny Novgorod refinery faces setbacks due to fire. Moscow, Yaroslavl, Novoshakhtinsk refineries to halt fuel #oil output by 2025-2026, reducing production by 150 kbd. 🇷🇺-🇺🇦 conflict hinders Kirishi refinery's modernization.

Welcome to another week of daily threads on Europe's war. Updated throughout the day (and night) every single day.

It's Day 481 of #Russia's illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

To review Sunday's thread, click here.
I tempted fate by saying I was hoping for sleep. Soon enough alarms were sounding in the south of #Ukraine.

Suspected cruise missiles launched from #Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and #Odesa has reported explosions. Hopefully it's just air defence.

Good news is just coming in from #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) where it seems to be quiet now.

There were reported to be three targets - all three may have been shot down. I'm not hearing of damage yet.

Judging from various reports, the #ukrainecounteroffensive seems to be a complete disaster, even though this is officially denied by the Western side.

But this analysis by Col. Richard Kemp of the #British military shows no expectations of success.

Col. Kemp uses cautious language, but it is easy to read between the lines. Being a retired Western Colonel, you don't expect him to come out and say openly that #Ukraine️ is going to lose. But that is exactly what he is saying.

Let me explain why the conclusion is clear.

His main points:

1. Surprise is essential for success.

But of course, there is no surprise here. The whole world has been expecting this operation for months. There are no unexpected lines of attack like #Incheon in the #KoreanWar in 1950.

Interesting observation from the war in #Ukraine️:

#Russia may be experiencing substantial supply issues of Kontakt-1 basic explosive reactive armour (ERA).

ERA is a vital component of Russian armour protection and was generally believed to be readily available. Image
Several telegram channels are looking for Russians who can produce the metal containers for Kontakt-1 explosive reactive armour (ERA) or spare some materials for them.

They post the machine drawings and of these containers, and recruiting machine shops who could produce them. ImageImage
Some quotes from Russian channels:
"the tankers are unable to get any [Kontakt-1]".

Apparently from the Donetsk area: "[we] need 3000 pieces of remote sensing elements [ERA] plus monthly expense in battles is 1000-1200 pieces"

Day 480 of the war. #Russia defending stubbornly with reinforced lines in the areas of #Ukraine they stole.

But I think the real push, with most forces, is yet to come. Here's another daily thread. There's been one every day, but I do need support pls!
Yesterday's thread can be found on the link below, click and scroll if you missed anything.

Loads of nice photos and videos in Saturday's thread and how there seems to have been a #Russia-#Africa plot to deny missile strikes, but Russia's MoD messed up!

Who doesn't like a bit of alliteration? And here are some sweet Sunday sounds to start your day.

Less than 20km north of #Henichesk in #Kherson region there was a big explosion, then many, many more in the village of #Rykove as #Russia's weapon/ammo store there went up in smoke!

The Ukrainians have just published a video ( I won't publish it ) of positions previously held by the Russians on which you can see instruments such as a hammer and a trunk with which the Russians murdered deserters.

#Russia #RussiaIsCollapsing #RussianArmy #ukraine #ukrainian Image
The footage shows the bodies of the deserters, and the dug-out spot in the ground where they were to be buried. The footage is extremely drastic - he does not want to publish it.
Oh well... I forgot about #RussiaIsATerroristState

Durante la visita della delegazione Africana che domani sarà in 🇷🇺 per cercare di mediare una pace fra #Russia ed #Ucraina, la prima ha lanciato un attacco contro #Kyiv.
6 Kinzhal e 6 missili cruise Kalibr sono stati riportati abbattuti (100%), oltre a 2 droni ricognitori. Image
Foto riportate essere delle intercettazioni dei vari missili 🇷🇺 abbattuti oggi nei pressi di Kyiv. Una delle cose più divertenti della vicenda è vedere gli account pro-🇷🇺 criticare quello che sarebbero stati lanciati dai PATRIOT 🇺🇦 in preda al panico mentre tentavano di 1/2 ImageImageImage
Intercettare i missili 🇷🇺. Perché è divertente? Perché il MoD 🇷🇺 ha dichiarato di aver già distrutto sostanzialmente tutta la batteria (6 lanciatori + radar). Come fa la batteria Patriot a sparare nonostante sia stata distrutta? Mistero. 2/2

the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolay #Patrushev. Thus, during another online meeting with the leadership of the security bloc, #Putin shared his plans to involve Chechen fighters of Ramzan #Kadyrov to fight saboteurs in the #Belgorod oblast.

Dołącza one do 3 już walczących kompanii - razem 11.
