It's Wednesday, Day 385 of the war, #Ukraine's existential fight for its' existence.

Here's another daily thread documenting #Russia's ongoing invasion, war crimes and all the news, all the time, updated throughout the day.

If you can support my work, see the link in my bio💙💛
There was a lot of important news on Tuesday.
More awful shelling and missiles fired at #Ukraine citizens. An American drone downed by #Russia's air force, a car bomb attack in occupied #Melitopol and a new #Wagner cemetery.

Missed it? Click here:

Firstly reports of explosions in #Sloviansk - probably we will get more details in the morning.

But, while #Bakhmut holds, #Russia is creeping closer to Sloviansk and #Kramatorsk. Confirmed that the invaders have taken the village of #Zaliznyanske, north-west of Bakhmut.
The @nytimes is reporting that the "Reaper" drone hit by #Russia was NOT carrying weapons.

Quoting a "high ranking Pentagon source" the UAV took off from Romania to carry out recon about 75 miles southwest of #Crimea.

The Kremlin says the drone went in to a dive and crashed.
US company accused of flouting export controls and aiding #Russia's war effort.
Great report from @SimonOstrovsky:

The latest "Ramstein" meeting is due to take place today among #Ukraine and its' allies

It's an online format, and it will be a surprise if anything new is announced, or given, to Ukraine despite its please for fighter jets.
#Poland has already said it will give MiGs in 4+ weeks
#Russia's short, medium and long-term plan for #Moldova when it ousted the current pro-western government.

@michaeldweiss was handed the secret document days after US Intel confirmed the Kremlin plot to destabilise the govt in #Chișinău

#Russia shelling has damaged 8 multi-storey apartment buildings and an electricity substation in a village in #Donetsk.

1,000 people are without power, but thankfully no serious injuries during the strike on #Kurakhove, 25km north of Vuhledar

Back to huge numbers of dead Russians. Almost 1,000 thought to have died in #Ukraine in the last 24 hours*

Also, prior to today Ukraine was managing to hit on average 1.3 Multi-Launch Rocket Systems a day. Y:day they destroyed 7 plus 9 other artillery systems.

* Kyiv's figures
Auckland's "World of Culture" festival hit by 'Russian threats'

A group planning to perform #Ukraine's "Chervona Kalyan" at the event which starts next week, claim they've received threatening phone calls and told their visas will be revoked if they sing

Britain's daily update thinks Putin is reenacting another Communist era policy, as fewer and fewer civil liberties remain in today's #Russia
It's being reported that #Ukraine has hit another big concentration of invading troops in #Luhansk.

A #HIMARS attack is said to have hit #Khrustalnyi, about 55km south of the city of Luhansk.

#Russia is calculating the losses but it's said to be very high.

Problems for the occupiers in #Melitopol

Wages haven't been paid by #Russia to public employees for 3 months. They've had enough and a demonstration has been called for 6pm tomorrow.

Melitopol Maidan?
Another Russian jet has been shot down near #Bakhmut.

The Su-24 bomber was taken down by #Ukraine's 93rd Brigade.

In #Kherson, which was liberated four months ago, today was the first day alcohol was allowed to be sold again in supermarkets.

There were big queues at check outs, some bulging baskets and quickly empty shelves!

At the Ramstein format meeting, the US Defence Secretary confirmed that #Ukraine will get 150 Leopard tanks.
Lloys Austin said "the coalition of countries promising to provide Leopard tanks continues to grow. 9 countries have now pledged to provide more than 150 Leopard tanks,"
Long time followers will know the name of #Marganets, a village alongside #Nikopol, just across the river from the occupied territory and the #Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

It's shelled most days. Today 2 people died and 5 were injured as 11 residential buildings were hit.
Files have been prepared by #Ukraine on 600+ war crimes suspects.

A bhuge board in an office in #Kharkiv details the potentially guilty, from 100s of #Russia's soldiers all the way up to Putin himself.

#Poland has busted a spy network from #Russia!

That's the claim made by news radio station RMF, saying Polish security agents arrested 6 Russian spies involved in sabotage. The group is thought to have installed hidden cameras on important rail routes.

Bad news for Putin and #Russia's budget.

Despite Saudi Arabia threatening to undermine the price limit for Russian fuel, the cost of oil continues to fall.

A barrel of Brent on London's ICE exchange fell below $72 - the lowest since December 2021, two months before the invasion
#Russia's downing of the US "Reaper" drone may work to #Ukraine's advantage.

Head of Zelenskyy's party in Parliament, David Arakhamia points out the U.S. was worried about the technology falling in to Russian hands. Now they have it anyway, so no point denying Ukraine!
#Russia claims to have fought off an attack by #Ukraine's forces in Occupied #Zaporizhzhia region.

The Kremlin says Ukrainian forces tried to advance in the #Polohivskyi area, which is approximately midway between Zaporizhzhia and #Berdyansk. No word from Kyiv yet.
The Defence Ministers of #Russia and #USA have held phone conversations today according to the Russian state news agency TASS.
In #Ulyanovsk today superpower #Russia unveiled its latest high tech ferry.
Greed, corruption in action.

The hopelessly corruption riddled IBA began its women's boxing world championships in #Delhi.

#India too of course raised no objection to the flag of a terrorist state being paraded on its territory.
Many countries have boycotted the event.

Do you believe in coincidences?
What are the chances of two saw-mills catching fire within hours in the same region of #Russia?

The blazes happened in Ilkino in Vladimir oblast; then the same thing happened 30 miles away in the Murom district.
Want to give a plug to one of my biggest supporters and long time follower Naomi, who's doing amazing work for #Ukraine.

I hope a few of you may order her keyrings which will go to help Ukrainians.

US pilots reportedly queuing up to help #Ukraine defend their skies against #Russia.

America's most decorated pilot since Vietnam, Lt. Col. Dan Hampton, nicknamed Two Dogs, says he will even come out of retirement himself if needed.

Ukrainian + Italian news outlets report ex-#Russia Pres. Medvedev "hired" #Wagner to assassinate #Italy's Defence Min. with a bounty of $15m

No proof to the claims, but days ago Guido Crosetto said Wagner was behind the increase in migrants from Africa

What, no planes?
Never mind, not a bad day's 'shopping' at the Ramstein meeting for #Ukraine.

Looks like my account has rattled Elon's cage.
I have indeed been downgraded or "shadow-banned"

Strange how many opposing Russia's war crimes end up being targeted by @TwitterSupport
As my tweets are not making the impact they should, perhaps you can all retweet?
Earlier I reported on #Russia supposedly stopping a #Ukraine attack in #Zaporizhzhia (RU: #Zaporozhe) region.

This video is said to be proof of the Ukrainians being defeated.

Putin approved #Russia's "downing" of US drone.

That's the claim made by NBC tonight.

#USA spent the day trying to downplay the incident to avoid escalating tensions - which I am 100% sure Putin predicted, hence why he did this.

Show weakness, get hit.

This is interesting... a huge fire in occupied #Berdyansk.

This is a guest-house called "Svitlana" with the owner a well-known businesswoman in the city.
There are allegations she continued to operate throughout the war and #Russia's invaders frequented the place.

Another day, another #Wagner cemetery.

This one is in #Kursk, although some discrimination at work here as all the #Wagner graves are kept separate from the others at the city's Southern graveyard.

#RussiansGoHome (dead or alive, your choice)

This is the start of the daily 🧵for Day 386 of #Russia's war of choice in #Ukraine.

For all Wednesday's news, including US pilots volunteering for Ukraine, assassination plot against an EU figure and an unexplained fire on occupied #Berdyansk, click⬇️

I'll start today with #BakhmutHolds.
No big changes to report. #Wagner troops have advanced right into the centre, but it's constantly changing as the cattle get slaughtered and retreat.

Some #Russia channels claim #Khromove on the west of #Bakhmut is captured but not confirmed.
Speaking of slaughter of Russians, the number of invading soldiers killed in the last 24 hours tops 1,000 again. A large number of #Russia's troops died in an attack at #Nevelske 20km from #Avdiivka

High numbers of tanks + artillery systems too, plus the aircraft I noted y'day. Image

Welcome to another daily thread for Day 384 of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.
In yesterday's thread we heard that the ICC is planning on bringing two war crimes charges against the Kremlin.

If you want to review anything from Monday, it's all here⬇️
#Russia has now lost over 160,000 soldiers invading #Ukraine according to Kyiv's fugures.

10 tanks, 16 artillery systems (+2 MLRS) and 740 more deaths for Russia are the standout figures in the last 24 hours.

#Russia's continuing supply problems are the focus of the UK update once again today:

It's a wet and windy start to the week where I am, hope it's better where you are.
In #Kyiv + #Bakhmut it's around freezing now (9am) but some very mild days and nights mean a lot of mud on the frontlines later in the week in #Ukraine

It's Day 383 of #Russia's war, here's the 🧵
I know a lot of people miss things at the weekend.
But you can get a quick catch up of all that happened in #Ukraine yesterday by taking a scroll through the previous thread, and I would urge you to do so, some important news and events in there:

One thing from yesterday I do want to flag up is this story and what will hopefully become a concerted effort to ban athletes from #Russia from the Olympic Games.

A small part of Antarctica has been de-Russified.

#Ukraine scientists at the Vernadsky Academy changed spellings on the signposts for cities such as #Odesa and #Kropyvnytskyi, while they added symbolic places such as #Mariupol, #Kherson and #Bucha.

Near #Kreminna towards the north of the active frontline in this war, there is an admission from #Ukraine's Command that #Russia has gained a little ground.

They report enemy units moving forward in the forest with the aid of armoured vehicles.

Saturday is Day 381 of #Russia's attempt to obliterate #Ukraine from the map, to destroy an independent nation and centuries of culture.

This is the only thread you need for all the news and developments around the war, here's y'day's thread to catch up:

Starting today with the British Intel update. London confirms that #Wagner troops have reached the centre of #Bakhmut. However they explain why #Ukraine is still holding #Russia at bay in the #Donetsk town.

They don't supply a map, so I've added 2 from Google + DeepState to help
There are so many exaggerations, lies & fakes in all wars; I guess these days it's easier, quicker to spread + difficult & time consuming to try to spot fakes.

But here's one. As news of Leopard tanks being deployed by #Ukraine, a crude photoshop of a🇷🇺 chevron on an old photo

Welcome along to Friday's thread covering the war in #Ukraine.

#Russia's illegal invasion continues as do these daily threads. Today is Day 380.
If you're able to support what I do, please buy me a coffee (see bio)💙💛

Here's the link for yesterday's 🧵

A lot of fears about the nuclear power plant in #Enerhodar.

An excellent article here (in Ukr but translates well with Google) about the problems experienced by workers at the #Zaporizhzhia plant from the first day of the invasion.

The former General Director of aviation giant Antonov has been arrested by authorities in #Ukraine.

Serhiy Bychkov will be detained for 2 months while investigations continue into several senior Antonov employees obstructing the Armed Forces which tried to save Hostomel airfield
