Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24. April 7 is the 43rd day of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The invading troops tried to advance from the north, east, and south, shelling peaceful cities throughout Ukraine from artillery and from the air.
From the first days of the war, the most difficult situation was seen in Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, and Mariupol. For more than a month, Russia shelled Kyiv and the outskirts of the capital, completely destroying a number of settlements.
Having been defeated and retreated from Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts in the north, the invaders are now preparing to attempt to seize those parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts that have remained under the control of Ukraine since 2014. According to intelligence reports, the enemy is gathering its troops for an offensive in the Donbas.
