Any OSINTs with the ability to access current #satellite imagery want to document evidence of #Russia's efforts to commit #genocide in #Ukraine?

No need for highest resolution of imagery, just need to know where to look. 😉


@Maxar @GeoConfirmed @WarintheFuture @GeeDawg55975157 @CovertShores @OSINT88 @oleksiireznikov @Gerashchenko_en I have concealed & not publicized CRITICAL infrastructure inside Ukraine since early March, given it IS essential to LIFE in UA, as I did not want to put any Ukrainians at risk.

Russia's "Scorched Earth" strategy from was evident since Feb 24, but I still purposely concealed.
But reality is, with how social media works, keeping this Open Source Intelligence concealed for the best interests of Ukrainians who are dependent on it, is thrown out the window with EVERY publication of EVERY explosion or fireball that EVER happens & reaches Telegram.

#UkraineWar: UK, US, and EU officially blame #Russia for #cyber attack targeting #satellite company BEFORE tanks rolled across the border. This reveals 2 critical issues 1/3 (a short threat)…
1. #Russia's military strategy: #cyberattacks (may) precede conventional military maneuvers. Hence, monitoring cyberspace for disruptive/significant cyber incidents can serve as a warning indicator before a military invasion.
#UkraineRussiaWar #Ukraine #cyber
2. #Russia's top military targets & priorities: establishing information superiority and disrupting communication channels is a primary step in the onset of war

#Satellite investigations around #Ukraine crisis has many facets, opportunities & problems.
Short thread on potential for more research & findings
#OSINT, #Intelligence, #Ukraine️
1) Most obvious: Showing the sheer extent of destruction from high-res satellite images. Like here (my video eval video) on a destroyed warehouse in Stoyanka, Kyiv region. Maxar, March 10.
2) Satellite images can also help to dismiss #disinformation. Fake posts claimed that the warehouse in Stoyanka exploded/burned up in 2015. That's impossible. We see it untouched on dated images inf 2019 & April 2020 on Google Earth
Good tool:

Flooding seen on the Sentinel-1 satellite images as well around the town of Demydiv #Ukraine
Around Irpin, not so much flood as a full river where there have been ongoing battles between the Russians and Ukrainians. It would limit you to bridges. Sentinel-1 #satellite.
Stuff (probably, tanks/APCs/armor) burning on either side of the river near Moshchun.

#Chornobyl nuclear power plant taken via Sentinel-2 #satellite at 2022-03-08 09:06:34 UTC (about 15 hours ago).
Can't tell what is different post-invasion (aside from the layer of snow. ps. don't eat the now mildly radioactive snow).
Radiation sensors there apparently back on the grid. Not great, not terrible.

#CVO researchers detect subtle increase in the rate of uplift, 3 mi west of #SouthSister volcano, of #ThreeSisters in central Oregon. Episodes uplift observed in this area before. Volcano status unchanged.  1/6…
Between June 2020-Aug 2021, #satellite data show uplift of ~0.9 in (about the width of your thumb) over a broad area 12 mi in diameter, west of South Sister. On-the-ground GPS monitoring confirms, detecting ~0.2 in of uplift since Aug 2021. #ThreeSisters 2/6
Uplift has been occurring in same area for ~25 years. From 1995 to 2020, area rose ~12 in (height of 2L soda bottle) at its center. Current uplift rate is slower than max rate from past - but distinctly faster than rate observed before 2020. #ThreeSisters 3/6

The doc said if she wouldn’t have gotten in when she did, we would have lost her … The infection had spread to her kidneys at A rapid pace,it was the reason why ImageImage
She had to stay the night to be monitored. She was not able to receive any pain medication after surgery because of the state her kidneys were in. Blood tests this morning showed her levels were back to normal, she received fluids to help clean out everything & is now
Recovering in her bed comfortably (as comfortable as possible with the cone) all hopped up on doggy pain meds …

Kanokupolu #Tonga taken yesterday, 1/16/22 via Airbus SPOT #satellite. Post volcano/tsunami. High resolution image, this looks to me to be ashfall.
#Tonga taken by Airbus SPOT on 1/16/22. This is (was?) Ha'atafu Beach and Haatafu Beach Resort, but it seems to me that there are structures missing on this side (the resort appears to me to be missing, or extremely covered with ash). Possible tsunami scouring on the beach.
Reference image in Google vs. this acquisition -- you can see the big building on the top right in both images, but none of the structures you'd expect at Ha'atafu Beach, Nuku'alofa itself. #tonga #tsunami #volcano

#Nomuka #Tonga via Sentinel-1 #satellite, before and after the #HungaTongaHungaHaapai volcano eruption.
This island south of Nomuka looks to have been inundated, based on Sentinel-1 radar image (darker areas = water).
Using a new feature of @sentinel_hub here's a sequence of SAR radar before/Sentinel-2 true color before/and then SAR radar after where you can see where the reflectivity of the land has changed to water.

Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai #volcano before/after the eruption. Sentinel-1 satellite (-20.48838, -175.28037)
Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai #volcano on the left, you can see the interference patterns on the waves from the tsunami impacts (another volcano on the right). The gob of stuff in the middle was not there before, maybe floating tephra or something else radar reflective.
No tracking details on these ships (premium satellite data) but there are a few fishing boats that got one heck of a wakeup call earlier. There's a few that were VERY close to the volcano. (60 miles away on open ocean).

Enfin une « bonne » nouvelle en provenance des États-Unis 🇺🇸 : La #sécheresse en partie résorbée en #Californie après plusieurs épisodes d’#intempéries ces dernières semaines. L’État de l'Ouest #américain était en proie à une sécheresse historique à l’automne dernier. #Thread 🧵 Image
📈Contexte : Les #USA contigus ont connu un été météorologique (Juin-Août) 2021 record 🌡, l’un des plus chaud jamais enregistré, à égalité avec l’été 1936. Sur la période Janvier-Août 2021, les températures sur tout l’ouest américain ont été bien au-dessus des normales. @NOAA ImageImage
Zoom 🔎 sur l’Ouest américain : Tout simplement l’été météorologique le plus chaud depuis le début des relevés en 1895. Près de 3°C au-dessus de la normale 🥵 (1901-2000). Du jamais vu !

Great to see the growing opposition in #Israel to the acquisition of #satellite operator #Spacecom by #4iG, owned by #Orbán's strawman #LőrincMészáros.
There appears to be a growing pattern that #Orbán allies look for investment opportunities in the high-tech end of the international defence & security sector. (See the case of #AeroVodochody and its Hungarian investors)…
While acquiring lucrative foreign investments (which the seriously indebted #Spacecom is not) might be a logical strategy for a #corrupt #RentSeeking elite, like the circles of #Orbán, there is definitely more behind this story.

#USSPACECOM deputy cmdr, Lt Gen John Shaw at @ascendspace on Russian DA-ASAT test: We are still characterizing this event. We expect the debris will grow over time. #Perigee, #apogee event will widen. "It will become a threat that we will have to deal with." #ASAT #Russia
Shaw: This isnt' the beginning of such activity. #Russia conducted a similar test in April, though it didn't target a #satellite. Russia is showing "disregard of the sustainability of #space."
Shaw likens tracking objects in #space to book version of #JurassicPark: Scientists had automated sensors to track dinosaurs & algorithm to count the expected number of dinos. Problem is, it didn't account for the population of dinos rising. ...

🇪🇺#EUSST contributes to protecting the safety & security of European economies, societies & citizens.

Our Operations Centres are monitoring a potential collision of two large, inactive #space objects. EU #SST estimates a probability above 1% that they may collide in two days👇
The two defunct objects are OPS 6182 (1978-042A), a meteorological #satellite🌧️🛰️ and rocket body🚀 SL-8 R/B (1981-041B). The network of EU #SST sensors📡 has been requested to observe the objects and provide additional measurements.
Stay tuned here for more updates.
⚠️Update: according to #EUSST's latest estimates using data from its surveillance radars, the close approach between #space objects SL-8 R/B & OPS 6182 expected by tomorrow will have a miss distance under 10m and a Scaled Probability of Collision over 20%! +updates to follow soon

Quand #Panama bloque #Suez : le porte-conteneurs #EVERGIVEN bloqué au sud du Canal de Suez, vu par le satellite #Sentinel2 le 24 mars. Première leçon : faire demi-tour dans un canal de 300m de large n'est pas l'idée du siècle quand on mesure 400m... #Copernicus #EarthObservation Image
Mise en service en 2018, #EVERGIVEN est un gros navire, un des plus gros porte-conteneurs : 400 mètres de longueur et 220000 GT (drôle d'unité) de tonnage. Il appartient à la société taïwanaise Evergreen Marine et bat pavillon panaméen. Photo Kees Torn #Suez Image
L'accident du porte-conteneurs #EVERGIVEN s'est produit le 23 mars au matin, bloquant la totalité du trafic du canal de #Suez. Les données #AIS montrent que ça se bouscule au portillon. Pour fixer les idées, une vue globale du canal de Suez. Image #Sentinel2 du 24/03 #Copernicus ImageImageImage
