Welcome to Wednesday's daily🧵covering all the news from #Russia's war of choice.
The Kremlin hopes to mobilise 1m "soldiers" to fight the losing battle. To defend their homeland, #Ukraine troops need winter gear. Please help us reach £10k target
Today is Day 217.
Yesterday saw the "results" of the fixed and illegal referenda, blank voting papers, stolen toilets, empty passenger jets heading into #Russia and much more.
It's Monday and I hope it's the start of a good week for you.
This is the daily thread number 215 with all the news from #Russia's war on #Ukraine
Now anyone who gives over £200 will receive a personal message of thanks from🇺🇦 soldiers on the frontline.
Just to clarify, if you have already made a pledge, you are still eligible. So if you gave £100, we need £101 more, or if you donated £200, just an extra £1 will do it, but feel free to give more if you can afford it.
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!
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
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:
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
⚡️#Russia's soldiers sexually assaulted a 4 year old child.
⚡️🇷🇺embassy in Canada firebombed
⚡️Big (suspicious) fire in 🇷🇺 city
⚡️Employees forced to "donate" over 40% of their weekly wage to Russia's war
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.
For all yesterday's stories check through yesterday's thread right here:
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.
