We need more of this - much more of this from the international community before the air bridges & resupply routes are severed.

@GOVUK what assets are being deployed to #StandWithUkraine
Needs more of these also

Reports of Netherlands also dispatching 200 Stinger Missile to #StandWithUkraine
Now Germany subscribes to send 1000 anti-tank & 500 stingers

#Russians pls you-have to stand down and get they boys & girls back home. This is a war which can’t be won as the world #StandWithUkriane
Why resupply & #Ukraine resistance are so important 👇
More countries rallying to #Ukraine borders both in terms of humanitarian aid & defensive postures against conflict spillage In other countries

Europe is now on a full scale defensive war footing.

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane 💙💛
@ukhomeoffice @pritipatel failing to clear-way for #Ukraine refugees

Drawing cross party fire from @ThangamMP @UKLabour + @libdemdaisy @LibDems

See also @LabourSJ case of a 3yr old U.K. national + Ukraine mum left to fed for them selves = despicable.

Response to @LabourSJ - see the header case of a 3yr old U.K. national & #Ukraine mum abandoned by @ukhomeoffice in #UkraineWar

Note Poland’s opened its borders to all #Ukraine nationals & including those without ID!
#Ukraine posts call for #ForeignCitizens to help fight against #Russians

The links not loading so we can’t see the detail.

There will be challenges with this call if the mad - bad or sad turn-up to fight & may cause more harm than good.

Yes we should #StandWithUkriane but??
Reports of @UkrEmbLondon inundated with requests to go to #Kyiv to fight

Assume scores technical & humanitarian support offers also

Like many can assist as ex vice chair @TheEPSLdn but need permission from @GOVUK to do so given legacy restrictions

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane 💙💛
Sanctions take many forms but one will be personal to Putin
Important to see Lord Porter @garyportercbe citing some in local government backing the U.K. doing more to support #Ukraine humanitarian aid - if anyone can convince @LGAcomms it’s this man.
⚠️ Breaking News ⚠️

@SkyNews reports that @trussliz @GOVUK will back Britons who want to fight in #UkraineResistance

@FCDOGovUK urgently request guidance so we can review the practicalities & start mobilising technical support in the first instance @UkrEmbLondon
International humanitarian aid is now spooling up as 10,000s #Ukraines are displaced - mostly women & children.

@mercycorps article report on what Syrian refugees brought with them.

@mercycorps highlights what refugees need after leaving - article provides a starting point but not exhaustive

Medical attention - shelter - water - food - hygiene - trauma support are the immediate to short term priorities.

Then a resettlement assist

@LucyGoBag do we know who’s taking the primary coordinator role for international aid? Image
Long thread @Jack_Watling offers critical advice to #Ukrainians who can’t evacuate

As the war escalates + reports of Russian forces going door to door shooting or detaining anyone - times running out to prepare

Cannot impress enough prepare now!!

This is who Putin is displacing

Women & Children - the vulnerable and those most in need of international humanitarian aid

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane 💙💛
What a bloody mess - was it a Putin Objective to drive out those who supports his regime and those who do not!

Time for all #StandWithUkriane to literally stand & be counted + give tangible resources


Those siding with Russia hammered with sanctions
Surprising breaking news that EU will finance purchase of weapons and equipment to Ukraine.

Note the source is @RT_com
Non military civilians thinking to joining #UkraineWar don’t - there’s better ways for you to support the relief efforts

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane💙💛

@RedCrossUkraine 👇
Finally @BorisJohnson @GOVUK concedes #Ukraine refugees with family in the U.K. can come without visas.

He needs to step-up support across the board and get his cabinet & government in order!

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane 💙💛
Excellent points raised by @LucyGoBag international #DisasterManagement Guru

Everyone wants to help the #Ukrainian humanitarian aid response but as we saw during #hurricanekatrina to post #Grenfell et al there are better ways of helping

Check out this guide from Lucy’s post👇 Image

Can anyone see who’s posting to my thread on international aid

@TwitterSupport please remove, block or unlock the posts photographed so I can respond

& so that informed work continues to help #StandWithUkriane unmolested

Ex london vice chair #EmergencyPlanningSociety @TheEPS1 Image
Not sure @iheartameriana is legit

We direct people to the main humanitarian aid organisations or info
how best for everyone to contribute

We can’t see all the posts which as a security bod is raising suspicions thankfully we have #cybersecurity friends looking into this 😈 ImageImage
Can anyone help with @GlenGrant request for transport.
Not the news anyone would be hoping from OPEC but in other reports they have increased production within limits.

EU steps up a notch to provide “fighter jets” to #Ukraine

Has Putins nuclear stance backfired?

💙💛 #StandWithUkriane 🇺🇦
Another watershed moment from EU shut down of air space to Russia

Hell of a long thread by @lewis_goodall @BBCNews near western #Ukraine border

I don’t know where to start or finish - it’s something you need to read quietly & listen loudly

Grandparents, parents, children killed during the #UkraineConflict

Tragic, needless, waste of precious life - this is what international communities must stop.

Not sanction or wait but stop

💙💛 #StandWithUkraine 💙💛

I don’t like posting casualty pictures - particularly when it’s children

The world must see the horrors and #StandWithUkraine 💙💛
London today

We’re not perfect and have a clown for a prime minister but by hell we know right from wrong

Proud to be Londoner today 🇬🇧 💚

Will @UN send an international peace keeping force - implement further sanctions or yield to #Putins nuclear threat option.

Each day passes makes #Ukraines position increasingly more dangerous to the civilian population as #Russia ramps up aggression.
Fume #Ukraines need tactical resource and reinforcement to push Russians - Chechnya- Belarus forces put of the country
international peace keeping force to maintain status quo so the population isn’t killed, maimed or displaced

This isn’t a bloody village hall jumble sale!
In comparison to recent U.K. policy

+ do we really think #brexit was or is a good idea?

Or until next time the Russian fleet comes down the English Channel & sends bear bombers over the mainland. Image
Will the EU fast track membership before the close or business & send a fleet message to #Russia & it’s Alliances.
More support from #Turkey frustrating #Russian use for the straights to move combat resource by sea.
Though on the types of aid #Ukrainians need

Military - defensive + attack
Critical infrastructure
Medical - routine & emergency
Emergency services
Public & mental health
Political & economic
Environ. & bomb clearance
Rebuilding & Recovery

Cc @TheEPS1
International communities and #Russians please stop this madness in #Ukraine

Scroll back,see footage from multiple sources of thermobaric missile salvos to cluster bomb deployments at civilian areas

When the scrip dropped ,we saw a mans truth, until the facade raised again

Note what looks like polystyrene being added to make the Molotovs more potent - acting like a plasticiser or home made napalm.

A truly horrible but sadly necessary defensive weapon in this context unless the world rearms or better reinforces #Ukraine
This image says it all wife’s, sisters, mothers, daughters, grandmothers forced to prepare for war.

⚠️ #EssenFire

Images of a burn out residential block earlier this morning from German City of Essen.

Reports 3 people take to hospital for smoke inhalation

Building appears to be low to mid rise & completely burned out after 100 occupants evacuated.


Reports suggest fire started around 2am & spread to block involvement within 20mins

Appears the fire compartments failed early stage by what mechanisms is unknown

@ahillslegal @LisaR8624 Few things

building safety risk is classed as a risk arising from

I) fire spread

II) structural collapse or partial collapse

Not risks of damp or mould etc

Note limit to “fire spread risk” not ignitability, combustibility or flammability.

Fancy legalese again by @govuk
@ahillslegal @LisaR8624 @GOVUK Ok assuming the material had a potential to ignite, combust etc

Are they only looking at the consequences of the spread and not the probability

Will they introduce risk grades low, medium, high or very high

Which ones will make the cut for funding - all, some, very high etc
@ahillslegal @LisaR8624 @GOVUK What test or performance standard will be applied to fire spread risk

Inhibit, restrict, limit to first item, component, compartment or other extent

Interesting fire spread picks-up not only cladding, balconies, insulation but cavity barriers & then compartments, fire doors etc
