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.

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

#France and #Macron deserve a thread in the context of #Ukraine, #Russia and beyond.

- First, some historical context: France, just like #Britain, is a declining power. This process started with the loss of colonies after the World War 2.

🧵 ...

- A clear geopolitical shift happen with the Suez Crisis in 1956, which marked the emergence of #USA and #USSR as the world powers.

- #France also experienced a humiliating military defeat by #Germany during the World War 2. That shaped rather pretentious politics of ...

.. Charles de Gaulle, who tried to restore the French power with dissenting views vis-a-vis #Americans and #British (or the "collective Anglo-Saxons"). In 1966, #France withdrawn from the #NATO's military command.

Nach über 30 Jahren neoliberaler Politik kapituliert die Regierung des #UK vor der hohen Inflation.

Im Mutterland des Kapitalismus plant die Regierung einen Preisdeckel für ausgewählte Lebensmittel. Dabei zweifelt sie am Nutzen.

Man ist halt verzweifelt. Rishi Sunak will ask stores...
Die hohe Inflation setzt auch im UK weite Teile der Bevölkerung unter massiven Druck.

Die hohen Lebenshaltungskosten führen dazu, dass viele Haushalte die monatlich anfallenden Ausgaben regelmäßig mit Krediten decken müssen.

Bisher ist es der Regierung und Zentralbank nicht
gelungen die Inflation merklich zu senken. Weshalb die Regierung jetzt mit den Supermärkten über einen Preisdeckel auf ausgewählte Lebensmittel spricht.

Alles natürlich freiwillig.

Das Vorbild sind die bereits im März in Frankreich eingeführten Preisdeckel.

Volodymyr Zelensky's evening address:

"Three long days - and our soldiers, our state are getting stronger. Much stronger.

#Italy 🇮🇹, #Germany 🇩🇪, #France 🇫🇷, #UK 🇬🇧... Returning home with new defense packages."
"More new and powerful weapons for the front, more protection for our people, more political support.

Our peace formula was discussed at all meetings, and now there is more willingness of partners to follow the Ukrainian formula." - Zelensky
There is more support for our accession to the #EU 🇪🇺, more understanding that Ukraine's accession to #NATO is inevitable. So, the main results for these days: new weapons for #Ukraine 🇺🇦, respect for Ukrainians, and we managed to make our victory closer. And we will add support!
