It's the start of the daily #Ukraine thread for Thursday 16 November. it's Day 631 of #Russia's war.
Yesterday saw the fewest "views" of a thread for the war for a couple of months. Not much big news around, but also war fatigue likely setting in. Please help me spread the word!
To review how Day 630 panned out, click the link below.
You'll find details of #Ukraine looking to have broken through in a part of #Kherson while #Russia returned to the awful "double-tap" tactic, killing firefighters - a despicable war crime.
First the overnight news.
16 people were injured in #Khmelnytskyi region.
#Ukraine says it shot down attack drones but debris fell on 11 high-rise and 9 private buildings.
Also damaged were the local police department and here, photos of the Fire Station where debris also hit.

Yesterday proved to be a reasonably quiet day at the front, but still a lot of senseless shelling of civilian population and infrastructure by #Russia's occupiers and invaders.

Saturday's headlines were dominated by Ihor Kolomoislyi, but we also had a U-turn by the Nobel Prize organisers, explosions in occupied areas and on #Odesa's special day, of course #Russia had to attack the region as the day ended.
