What is the status of the war in Ukraine?1 min read
Here’s a short rundown of Russia’s offensives, based on the Institute for the Study of War’s most recent research. Every day, the US-based thinktank creates a frontline assessment using OSINT and press reporting.
Kyiv: While Russian forces launched isolated strikes on Irpin and Guta-Mezhyhirksa – locations just outside the capital – on Monday and Tuesday, they have not attempted any larger action against the city in the last 24 hours.
Mariupol: Russia maintains its attack on the southern city from the east and west.
Kharkiv: Russian soldiers are running out of ammunition as they try to encircle this north-eastern city.
Kherson area: Russia erroneously claimed possession of this region on Tuesday, but has made no advances into the vital cities of Zaporizhya or Mykolaiv.
Odesa: Russia is not yet prepared to begin a sea-based attack against the southern port city since it has not yet established soldiers on the land.
