Sunday 25 September, Day 214 of #Russia's war of choice. Imagine a leader choosing to send over 50,000 of his countrymen to death and calling up another million, against a peaceful nation which never fired on, nor invaded anyone!

Here is the daily news thread

#StandWithUkraine Sunday started with a bang in #Kherson.

More on that in a moment, but Saturday was a quiet one, thankfully. If you want to scroll back through, here's the thread:

It's seven months ago today that #Russia started its illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

The "short special military operation" started in winter, and is now in its fourth season. The killing continues.

Here's the daily news thread for Saturday 24 Sept

Let's start Day 213 with #Russia's total losses after 7 months. On average 264 soldiers are being killed every day. The ratio between deaths and injured/disabled means if #Ukraine's estimates are correct likely 200,000 have been lost to the military

Almost the weekend, this is Friday's daily thread with all the news, views + analysis as #Russia attacks #Ukraine

It's Day 212 of the war

There's an update to the Ukraine fundraiser. We hope to get one of these alongside the winter clothing. If you can help, see my pinned tweet Image As usual a link to yesterday's thread as a few of you tell me you like to check up on the news in one place.

Another fairly quiet day in terms of attacks and missiles, although just before Thursday ended, #Zaporizhzhia suffered a bad attack:

Welcome to Thursday's daily thread on #Russia's war.
It's Day 211 of non stop shelling and killing.

#Ukraine needs your help, if you can spare anything, please consider donating to our Fundraiser as we're falling behind the target

crowdfunder.co.uk/p/save-ukraine… Wednesday was remarkable.

From pathetic Putin's ramblings/partial mobilisation, to the street protests in #Russia, to the prisoner swap deal which saw all 5 Britons released, ending with Zelenskyy's focused and powerful, history-making speech at the #UN

We've reached Day 210 of #Russia's 3 day plan to topple #Kyiv.

Tuesday 20 September - Day 209 of the illegal war being waged by #Russia, welcome to the daily thread.

#Ukraine is fighting for democracy, for its very survival. Our fundraiser is at 18% of target - a good start. Photos added of what we will be buying.

crowdfunder.co.uk/p/save-ukraine… Many interesting stories late on Monday's thread

⚡️#Russia's soldiers sexually assaulted a 4 year old child.

Day 208 of the war.
#Russia's grotesque war on #Ukraine. This is the daily thread.

A new week, but a national holiday in the #UK - the funeral of Elizabeth II and a new photo - her last ever portrait.

Goodbye our Queen, and thank you. Fewer stories on Sunday than for a long time, which is a relief as that usually means fewer civilian deaths in #Ukraine.

But there was still plenty to write about - if you missed anything, scroll through yesterday's thread with this link:

Sunday 18 September, daily thread number 207 covering the news and analysis of #Russia's illegal invasion.

The fundraising to help #Ukraine's army with specific items for winter stands at £900 / €1000 after 2 days which is amazing - please see the pinned tweet if you can help! A late start today to the thread, but it's been largely quiet in #Ukraine so far this Sunday.

Hello and welcome to Friday, which is Day 205 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

Here's the daily thread, with all the news that matters.
If you want to flick through yesterday's stories, be my guest:

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine
Generally a quiet night in #Ukraine. The usual shelling from #Russia|ns in the likes of #Nikopol and #Sumy, but even in the latter fewer than 60 grads fired in the region in the last 24 hours, which although it sounds horrendous, is well down on usual daily figures.

It's Day 203 of the war. #Russia's inhuman, unprovoked, not to mention illegal war in #Ukraine.

The UN is powerless, some would say pointless. It's purely up to Ukraine and its' supporters to #StopPutin

Live updates in this 🧵, or catch up on y'day here

Big attack on the southern #Ukraine city of #Mykolaiv overnight.

The mayor has so far only said some private houses were hit. No news on casualties yet.

Monday 12 Sept. Day 201 of #Russia's war in #Europe

After the embarrassing retreat from #Kharkiv, the Kremlin seemed to take revenge by plunging a lot of #Ukraine into darkness by hitting power structures in #Kharkiv y'day.

If you want to recap, scroll⬇️
The British update concentrates on the #Kharkiv defeat for #Russia. I've seen some calculations that the area won back by #Ukraine is over 8,000 square kilometres.

I'm starting a daily thread on #Russia's illegal war for the 200th time.

Yes, we made it to Day 200, but Putin's 4-day "special operation" to take #Kyiv and 10-days to control all of #Ukraine is going "according to plan"😉🤥

All the Ukraine news, all day every day right here⬇️ First, notice the date, 11 September or "9/11"
Please remember all the victims of that horrific day in the U.S.

Hopefully #Russia's terrorism is being beaten thanks to the heroes of #Ukraine, at the front, protecting a free country.
Saturday was amazing:

Day 199 of #Russia's genocidal war on #Ukraine
My daily thread for Saturday starts here.

But what an evening and night it's been already.
So many emotional videos, small victories for Ukraine and another big fire in #Russia.

Missed anything? Catch up:

I've understandably been concentrating on #Kharkiv region, but there is still fierce battles elsewhere.

In occupied #Donetsk, the roof of a hospital caught fire when a rocket hit the building in #Kalininsky area.

Impossible to tell who fired it, but may be a false-flag attack
